Wrinkles are the skin forming creases and folds. They make a person look older; many people spend a lot of money to remedy this. The main cause of skin wrinkles is age and sun exposure. Some believe skin wrinkles involve diet, lifestyle or even genetics; I think it involves them all.
Millions of dollars are spent every year in this country on wrinkle creams. More money is probably spent on expensive plastic surgery which can be problematic and need to be done again.
Skin wrinkles are a natural progression of aging. They can also be symptoms of stress, dehydration, and toxicity issues or the result of hormonal changes at menopause.
Diet plays a factor in skin wrinkles; risks include using tobacco, alcohol, sodas, excess coffee, black tea, processed foods too as they interfere with connective tissue health.
Nutrition for skin is important. Use the following oils as they help moisturize skin:
Evening primrose oil is good for skin and female health (can soften cervix). 500 to 1,000 mg a day.
Flax oil is skin and cardio protective at 4,000 mg a day, not as anti-inflammatory as fish oil
Omega 3 fish oils is my favorite at 6,000 mg a day of whole salmon oil (from a health food store, not big stores); a must for cardiovascular health.
Herbs for Skin Wrinkles
Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.
Use a combination of the following herbs in liquid, capsule or powder for maximum benefit, and adjust as your condition improves. Therapeutic dose is equal to one capsule of each herb or 1 liquid dropper squeeze full of an herbal tincture 3 times a day.
Dong quai is a blood builder and breast and pelvic decongestant. It is also moistening.
Sarsaparilla is a blood purifier and hormone builder.
Burdock root is used for colon and liver toxicity.
