As we age, according to Live Strong, the capacity of the skin to repair itself and maintain its plump and tightness decreases due to the overall reduction in collagen and elastin proteins. When the amount of these pivotal proteins lowers, the muscle tone in the skin, especially the facial area, is negatively affected, resulting in a saggy skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. To fight off skin sagging, you need to be well-hydrated, to supply the skin with keratin and vitamins A, B, and E, and of course, to use this homemade, 100 percent natural remedy on a regular basis.
According to Healing Life Is Natural, this potent mixture will rejuvenate your skin and cleanse your facial pores with ease. It is known to possess antibacterial characteristics and it will thoroughly detoxify the skin. What’s more, you will not need to spend a small fortune for the ingredients and the preparation is rather simple and everyone can do it! Check out the recipe below.
