One of the hot new beauty and skin care craze these days has to be Botox and it is being used for a number of different purposes. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has come out with a number of different authorized uses for Botox for use on humans.

You can easily try an alternative treatment option that is much safer and can be made from several all-natural ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen or pantry.
DIY Anti wrinkle cream
While you can choose to spend a whole lot of money on plastic surgery procedures or risky injections that can only offer temporary relief from the wrinkles and will do much harm to the wallet. However, there is a much simpler and far less expensive way to rid your face of dreaded Crows feet and frown lines. This homemade or DIY anti-wrinkle cream consists of a combination of several different, all-natural ingredients that when combined and applied to the areas of the face that are the most problematic for you.
A simple recipe for anti-wrinkle cream
Let’s start with putting together a complete list of all of the ingredients that will go into the Do It Yourself anti-wrinkle cream:
- 5 tbsp Carrot juice
- 5 oz Plain Yogurt
- 1 tbsp Cornstarch
- 5 tbsp Water
Using a small bowl
- Pour the carrot juice into the bowl
- Add the plain yogurt to the bowl and stir vigorously
- Add the cornstarch to the mixture in the bowl and again stir vigorously
- Add some of the water slowly and stir it in
Note: you may add extra cornstarch if you added too much water to the mixture and it appears to be too watery.
Once you have the cream all prepared and ready to be applied you want to be sure you are ready.
Be sure to cover up the areas that you don’t want to accidentally turn orange if you were to get it on it. The carrot juice will have a tendency to cause a little bit of temporary staining to the skin depending on your skin type. This should not be too concerning as it is very temporary and generally is not thought to be permanent.
Apply it like a mask
The DIY Anti-wrinkle cream goes on your face just like any other facial mask product. Using your hand tip a couple fingers into the bowl and get some of the cream on your fingers. Apply the cream to your face and work it into your skin. Pay close attention to all of the areas that you have noticed the wrinkles that you are concerned about; around your eyes, between your eyebrows (above the nose) and even your neck area can be treated using this cream.
Let the cream set and dry on your skin, it is fairly quick drying and it should only take about 10 to 12 minutes for it to be ready to be removed. Using a face cloth and warm water wipe all of the dried on cream from your face.
You should see a fairly dramatic change in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck area. The other result will be that the skin all over your face and neck will feel much softer and smoother. The effects on the wrinkles should be immediate and quite dramatic, but it can take a little while for the full effect to take place.
Much like everything else health and beauty related, your specific results will vary and depending on a number of different reasons you may or may not experience the level of wrinkle removal that you were looking for. If you don’t get the immediate results that you were hoping for or even after a little while you still have not noticed a dramatic change in the size or overall appearance of the wrinkles you can always try it again and hope for a much better result.
