If you are looking for an alternative to overpriced cosmetics to treat wrinkles and aging you’ll be interested in these essential oils. One of the best places to use essential oils is in lotions which offer an effective, natural treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sagging skin. Let’s learn how to get rid of wrinkles naturally.

Wrinkles and Aging

As we grow older and our skin ages its structure begins to change. Skin becomes drier, thinner and loses elasticity. Did you know that our skin is more than 15 percent of our total body weight? Our skin is also a major part of our immune system and has beneficial bacteria living on it that help fight off unwelcomed microbes, so keeping it healthy is crucial.

In women hormones influence skin aging from as early as 30 years of age. Dryness and thinning can cause problem skin and random breakouts. Combine this with the loss of collagen, elastin then throw in gravity and you can really start to see your skin reflect your age.

Don’t worry though, essential oils can be used to increase collagen production which can slow down the aging process and even reverse some of the effects.

Best Essential Oils for Wrinkles and Aging

These essential oils all work well to support healthy skin and slow the natural process of aging. Each oil has powerful anti-aging properties when used on its own, but it’s best to combine them in a recipe to get all the benefits of each.
