I've been making my own homemade wrinkle cream for about 8 years now. And while a wrinkle cream recipe wasn't always a huge issue for me, I always had wrinkle-prevention in mind. Both prevention and reduction were especially important when I was teaching a class on homemade skin care at night school because my students were between the ages of 30 and 70.
Since I'm an aromatherapist I focus on making the most natural, healthy cream possible. I use natural carrier oils as well as essential oils. And since most of us are too busy to spend hours making a cream, I ONLY make creams that are simple, easy and as quick as possible.
made the discovery of this anti wrinkle cream quite by accident. I remember being pleasantly surprised by how the ingredients reacted with one another and have been making this wrinkle cream for myself, for years. I'm a fan of easy and this is that - while also having a fabulous consistency AND results. It's not 100% natural like Jan's cream below, but it's pretty darn close.
Modifications: You can add more aloe vera, carrier oil, or vitamin E for a different consistency. The more Vitamin E, the thicker.
This recipe was created by my teacher of aromatherapy. She's a brilliant woman and has the best skin ever! This wrinkle cream is 100% natural as it cleverly uses essential oils and other herbs to preserve it.
The essential oils in this cream are great for anti wrinkle but they also work as a preservative (along with the Vitamin E and Grapefruit Seed Extract).
Why you need preservativies:
Whenever you mix water and oils together, you NEED some sort of preservative or you'll end up with a natural cream that's just as (or more) harmful than a chemically-made cream.
