8 Homemade Anti-Aging Recipes From A Plastic Surgeon

Posted on by Anouschka in Anti-Aging, Latest News, Skin Care

I just came across this awesome page where plastic surgeon and beauty guru Andrew Ordon, MD shares his DIY Anti-Aging recipes.

 

His recipes are used for everything from eliminating dark circles under eyes to shiny hair to smooth, dewy skin.

 

The best part: these recipes use ingredients that you’ll find in your kitchen or local store.

 

There are 8 recipes, 3 of my favourites are:

 

Avocado-Honey Moisturizer

A moisturizer is an anti-aging must. By helping your skin retain moisture and acting as a temporary filler for wrinkles, it makes your complexion look smooth. Dr. Ordon says that his patients love this recipe because it makes their skin look and feel dewy, and youthful.

 

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons of fresh cream
1/4 avocado
1 tablespoon honey

 

Directions:
Place all three ingredients in a blender and puree into a smooth cream. Apply it to your skin and leave on for at least an hour. Rinse off with warm water.

Basil Toner

 This recipe is great for those prone to acne. The basil acts as an antiseptic, helps clear acne-causing bacteria, and improves circulation to the skin.

 

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons dried basil leaves
1 cup boiling water

 

Directions:
Crush up the dried basil leaves and mix them into a cup of boiling water. Once the mixture cools, strain out the leaves, put it in a spray bottle and spritz your skin. Use a cotton ball or pad to spread the toner gently around your face. Do this daily before cleansing.

Lemon-Agave Age Spot Fighter

 Your hands are a dead giveaway of your age, but this scrub can help. Exfoliating your hands lifts off the top layer of dead skin cells, which contains some of the pigment leaving age spots behind. The rice exfoliates, the agave hydrates, and the lemon helps lighten skin and lift off dead cells.

 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup cooked rice
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

 

Directions:
Mix together the above ingredients and blend well. Apply the mixture to dry hands, move the scrub around your hands in circular motions on the backs of your hands with firm but gentle pressure for one to two minutes. You can also rub this rice on the palms of the hands to soften calluses.

I also found this informative video about making homemade anti-aging facial masks:

 

 

I think you’ll agree that it helps to see someone actually preparing the face mask.
