Are you looking for a homemade recipe and natural recipe which is effective and able to get rid of even the small wrinkles on the forehead, eyes and face ?
We will briefly recap the role of collagen. We will speak a little of the properties of the Centella Asiatica, before giving you an anti-wrinkle recipe easy to prepare at home and which has proved itself.
Your skin has the advantage of healing itself permanently. About every 28 days, the cells of the epidermis is completely replaced. Under the epidermis is the dermis, which is composed of blood vessels, nerve endings, and conjunctive tissue. The dermis nourishes the epidermis and plays also the role of the skin’s supporting tissue.
The dermis is made of cells (fibroblasts) that manufacture two types of protein fibres: collagen and elastin. The collagen gives the skin its resistance to tensions and tractions. Elastin, as is indicated by its name, gives the skin its elastic properties.
1. The collagen fibres harden little by little and the number of elastin fibres lessen.
2. The sebaceous glands produce much less sebum which contributes to the dehydration (drying) of the skin. The skin becomes dehydrated, thinner and finally wrinkles.
Centella Asiatica, also known as Gotu Kola, is a creeping plant of Asiatic and African origin belonging to the Umbelliferae family.
Many studies have confirmed the beneficial effect of the Centella Asiatica plant in the regeneration of the skin and mucous membranes. A synergistic action of different active ingredients contained in the plants (especially triterpene compounds) gives it anti-wrinkle and healing properties.
For example, it has been shown that molecule contained in the Centella Asiatica, by the name of Asiaticoside, stimulates the synthesis of collagen fibres in the skin.
Result : the skin becomes firmer and smoother!
This anti-wrinkle cream is appropriate not only for wrinkles but also for scars and skin blemishes, because the Centella contributes to the formation of collagen fibres and to the elasticity of the skin.
In a small casserole, heat the almond oil with the centella leaves at low temperature, very slowly on to boiling. Filter the oil now full of the active ingredients of centella asiaitica leaves through a strainer, then add the virgin beeswax (Melted beforehand in microwave oven), the evening primrose oil and the lavender essence.
Apply the cream to the face and leave for about 15 minutes. Remove the beauty treatment with tepid water.
