Simple Ways to Look Younger and More Attractive

The worst part about getting older is looking the part. Looking older can affect our confidence, how we carry ourselves, and how others perceive us. Many of us are quite aware of our bodies aging, but what many of us aren't aware of is that there are plenty of home remedies that may already be in your kitchen or medicine cabinet!

There are many ways to tackle the problem with aging at home. There are many methods to combat virtually every symptom of aging. Ranging from wrinkles, dark under eye circles, hair loss, cellulite, to teeth whitening, there is a solution.

It would be unrealistic to complain that all remedies will work for everyone, but there is a solution out there for any problem for any person; it's just a matter of finding the right one for you.



1. Applying egg whites to the wrinkles under your eyes will help maintain elasticity. It is unnecessary to waste a whole egg doing this. The leftover portion in the shell is enough for one application.

2. Take two apricots and remove their seeds. Blend them together with lime juice, 2 tbsp of honey, fresh lime juice and cold milk. Apply on desired areas and let it work its magic for at least half an hour. Rinse with warm water. Results are noticeable immediately.

3. Empty three capsules of Vitamin E into a bowl. Add 2 tsp plain yogurt, 1/2 tsp honey, and 1/2 tsp lemon juice. Apply to desired areas with a cotton ball or something similarly absorbent. Leave this on your skin for at least 10 minutes.

Additional tips:
- Get a humidifier. Dry skin contributes to wrinkles. Humidifiers are inexpensive and will moisten the air that is usually dried out by air conditioners and heaters.
- Stop smoking. Smoking decreases the health of your skin considerably and will cause wrinkles to form more easily.
- Reflected sunlight is just as dangerous as direct sunlight. Light toned surfaces can actually reflect high levels of sunlight back up into your face.
- Exercise your face. Many wrinkles are caused by the skin staying immobile for long periods of time. By doing regular expression exercises, you will increase the elasticity in your skin and reduce wrinkles.


Dark Circles and Bags

1. Cut two thick slices of cucumber and place one over each eye covering the area where your dark circles are. Find a comfortable place to lay down as you do this and leave them applied for 15 minutes. Repeat daily.

2. Apply a cold wash cloth or tea bags on the troublesome spots. The caffeine in tea bags will actually help remove the discoloration under your eyes, which is why you sometimes see caffeine as an ingredient in many dark circles under eye cream products.

3. Some eye creams are a good idea as they can reduce both dark circles and wrinkles under the eyes. Hydrolyze takes care of both problems effectively by dissolving blood particles under the skin, as well as making eye wrinkles less visible. One container generally lasts several months so it may actually be more cost-effective than using kitchen remedies with many fresh ingredients.

4. After washing your face, apply equal parts tomato and lime juice to the dark areas. Over time, this will reduce discoloration.

Additional tips:
- Diets high in fruit reduces discoloration. Diets high in salt and MSG increase likelihood of discoloration and puffiness.
- Gently tapping the skin underneath the eye will encourage circulation and help reduce puffiness and discoloration.
- Stay hydrated to discourage fluid retention under the eye.

Hair Loss and Balding

1. Purchase some amla oil or make it yourself by boiling dry amla pieces in coconut oil. Apply this after washing your hair. Not only does it strengthen follicles to prevent hair loss, it also encourages hair growth and enriches pigmentation. As a result of this, it has been shown to reduce graying and dandruff as well as hair loss. It is widely regarded as a very effective remedy for hair loss.

2. Grind lime seeds, black pepper, and a small amount of water into a paste and apply it to troublesome area for undesirable patchiness. Do this daily.

3. Beat one egg white until it is foamy. Add 1/4 cup of plain yogurt. 1 Teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Apply to wet hair and massage it into your scalp for at least five minutes. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and then rinse. Egg is a natural moisturizer and will increase elasticity in the skin of your scalp, reducing dandruff and increasing the health of your scalp. The lemon is a natural cleaner and will remove buildup from hair products.

4. Lettuce and spinach both help prevent hair loss.

Additional tips:
- Gently massage your scalp throughout the day to promote circulation.
- There are many causes for hair loss. See a hair loss specialist for an expert opinion if home remedies are not working for you.



1. Drinking two glasses of fresh squeezed lemons mixed with a cup of water and a pinch of cayenne will reduce cellulite deposits. Add this to your daily routine for noticeable results.

2. Combine rosemary and fennel oils and apply to areas with visible cellulite daily.

3. Add two cups of sea salt to your bathwater and soak for at least 20 minutes. It will melt down externally visible body fat as well as remove toxins.

4. Grind up caffeinated coffee, mix it with skin lotion and apply it to target areas. Repeat daily for best results.

Additional tips:
- Maintaining a healthy detox diet that is low in fat, high in fiber, and with lots of fresh fruits and veggies will greatly reduce visible cellulite.
- Drinking green tea is thought to reduce cellulite.
- Use a body brush or luffa when bathing. Scrub thoroughly but gently to increase circulation.

Teeth Whitening

1. Brushing your teeth with baking soda can help whiten teeth and remove plaque, but it is abrasive so do not do this too often or too vigorously.

2. Brushing with strawberries can help whiten your teeth, but you should brush your teeth 20 minutes afterward to prevent tooth decay.

3. Rubbing the inner white part of an orange peel against your teeth can help give them a white shine.

4. Chewing on raw spinach may also help whiten teeth.

5. Many mouthwashes can improve the general health of your mouth while also contributing to teeth whitening. Using them excessively however can be harmful to your gums and throat.

Additional tips:
- Although some sources advise people to use lemon juice to whiten teeth, it causes the teeth to lose calcium, which is essential to the health of your teeth. There are ways to whiten your teeth without destroying them in the long run. Do not use lemon juice for the sake of white teeth.
- Smoking will stain your teeth. If you smoke long enough, it can become virtually irreversible with home remedies alone.


The Simple Truth

Most home remedies just involve using things that we already know are healthy. Most products use combinations of healthy ingredients. The secret to most cosmetic and health related issues is simply healthy diet and exercise. Fruits and veggies won't make us 20 years younger or turn us into super models, but they are essential to being as healthy, young, and beautiful as we can be and nobody was ever hurt by a healthy diet.

Avoiding bad things is just as important as consuming good things. Smoking, drinking, and excessive coffee consumption are all things we have known age us much more rapidly, but many of us continue to use them anyway. The simple truth is that with or without home miracle remedies, we all already know how to live healthy and vibrant lives.
