Are you looking for the perfect anti-wrinkle treatment for your skin? If so, you’ve started looking in the right place.

While some ingredients are made to reduce the looks of fine lines, others may help prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.  No matter what challenge you face, if you’re wondering how to reduce wrinkles with natural ingredients, the three listed below are bound to get you on the right track.

Coconut Oil

Because it’s high in saturated fats (the good kind of fat your body loves) and antioxidants like vitamin E and vitamin K, coconut oil is excellent for aging and wrinkled skin. Massaging this oil into your skin allows it to soak up antioxidants, thus evening out its skin tone, lightening age spots, and leaving your face with a healthy, wrinkle-free glow. In fact, coconut oil is so effective that many pregnant women use this oil to lighten and erase stretch marks on their belly and hips.

Kinetin

Kinetin* is a type of cytokinin, a type of plant hormone that promotes cell division and cell growth. Many use kinetin to reduce roughness, fine wrinkles, dilated blood vessels, and uneven skin pigmentation. Kinetin even promotes the creation of collagen, which causes a reduction in fine lines on your face, and its use will also help retain moisture in your skin.

*Not much testing has been done on kinetin and its effects on pregnant, so it may be best to avoid this ingredient as a safety precaution if you are pregnant or nursing. There is also some evidence (see this WebMD article) that those with bleeding disorders should use kinetin with caution.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea extract is one of our favorite ingredients here at Real Purity. Not only does it contain an anti-inflammatory, which reduces swelling and evens out skin pigmentation, but it also contains EGCG, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which can slow the appearance of wrinkles and prevent the formation of new ones. It also offers enhanced sun damage protection.

When looking for tips on how to reduce wrinkles with natural ingredients, make sure you check any product’s list of ingredients first. While some chemical names can be intimidating and concerning, some essential oils and natural ingredients can be equally irritating to your skin type – but if you are truly wondering how to reduce wrinkles with natural ingredients, products with the three ingredients above are a great place to start.
