Don’t spend a lot of money on commercial anti-wrinkle creams that are loaded with chemicals that do your skin no good. You can create your own formulas using ingredients that are a lot less expensive and more importantly, work.
The following two recipes are just a starting point to future discoveries.
It doesn’t get much simpler than this. Take two or three wedges of avocado and mash them into a creamy texture. Add 3 drops of jojoba oil to the avocado. Apply to face and leave on for about 10 – 15 minutes. Rinse and see how wonderful your skin will feel.
