An efficient wrinkle treatment needs to prevent and treat most of the main signs and side effects of aging skin, such as:

- loose, sagging skin
- fine lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet
- discoloration and age spots
- dry, thin skin
- loss of plumpness
- dull, rough looking skin
The following anti-wrinkle products are fast, inexpensive and easy solutions that will keep your skin plump, supple, smooth and glowing for many, many years.
5 Best Natural Wrinkle Treatments
1. DIY Anti-Aging Face Mask
- 2 tablespoons of mashed banana
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- ½ – 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
If you need a natural product to prevent aging signs and keep the wrinkles and fine lines at bay, this face mask might be perfect for you. Each ingredient keeps the skin healthy and youthful and protects it from the free radical damage.
Banana moisturizes the skin without making it oily. It stimulates collagen production and makes the skin firm and elastic. Milk exfoliates and brightens the skin and repairs skin damages caused by aging. Matcha green tea powder is very high in antioxidants that protect the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Mash a piece of banana well until you get a completely smooth paste. Add the other two ingredients and mix well.
Apply the mask to a clean face, preferably after a gentle scrub. Leave it on for around 20 minutes. Wash the mask off and apply a face moisturizer while your skin is still slightly damp, to lock in the moisture.
2. Hydrating Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
- 2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
This is one of the simplest, yet the most powerful anti-wrinkle treatments that you can make at home. It hydrates and plumps up the skin, provides it with antioxidants and stimulates the skin’s natural regenerative process.
Honey is a humectant that hydrates the skin without making it oily and it encourages the skin’s healing process. Aloe vera replenishes and restores the skin, soothes it and makes it smooth and glowing.
Orange juice exfoliates the skin, fades dark spots and other skin imperfections and improves the complexion. If you want, you can replace fresh orange juice with ½ teaspoon of dry orange peel powder.
In a small bowl, mix together the honey, aloe vera gel and orange juice until all the ingredients are well combined. Your mixture should be thin and runny, but completely smooth.
Wash your face and exfoliate it with a gentle face scrub. Apply the hydrating anti-wrinkle treatment with cotton balls. Leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes and during that time reapply as needed. Then rinse off the treatment and apply a face cream right away. The face cream will prevent the moisture from evaporating and keep your skin plump and well-hydrated for much longer.
3. Nourishing Anti-Aging Face Scrub
- 1 tablespoon of white sugar
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons pureed fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 – 2 teaspoons jojoba or coconut oil
Exfoliation is one of the most important skincare steps. It removes the dead, dry layer of skin cells, rejuvenates the skin and encourages the new skin cell growth.
This face scrub is perfect for aging skin. Sugar improves the collagen production and makes the skin soft and smooth. Blueberries are full of antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals. Natural oils nourish and moisturize the skin and keep it plump and supple.
Mix all the ingredients well together. You should get a texture similar to wet sand. Apply a thin layer of the scrub to your face. Exfoliate your skin for 5 – 10 minutes, then wash off the scrub. Follow with an anti-aging face mask.
4. DIY Yogurt and Flax Seed Treatment for Wrinkles
- 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 2 teaspoons of honey
Yogurt and flax seed are a great combination for reducing wrinkles, fine lines and aging spots. You can almost instantly see the changes this natural wrinkle treatment makes in your skin.
Yogurt contains lactic acid, which exfoliates the skin, brightens it and makes it soft and supple. Flax seed contains many nutrients, antioxidants and fatty acids that nourish the skin and prevent aging signs.
First mix the yogurt and honey. When you get a smooth mixture, add the ground flax seed and mix again.
Wash and exfoliate your face. Apply the mask in as thick a layer as possible. Leave it on your skin for around 20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water and a gentle face cleanser and apply a face cream.
5. Anti-Wrinkle Face Oil
- ¼ cup sweet almond oil
- 1 tablespoon rose hip oil
- 10 drops vitamin E oil
- 10 drops frankincense oil
Anti-aging face oils became very popular lately due to their ability to quickly deep-nourish and rejuvenate the skin. However, they can be very expensive.
But, did you know you can make a perfect anti-aging oil blend at home? This amazing DIY anti-wrinkle treatment not only saves you money, but you can completely customize it to your preferences and your skin’s needs.
This oil combination prevents wrinkles, smoothes and tightens the skin, evens out the complexion and adds youthful glow to your skin.
