Understanding why wrinkles form

As we age our sebaceous glands work less vigorously, therefore our skin becomes dry. (Imagine a leaf that has lost its moisture, it becomes old looking and wrinkled, so obviously the key is to maintain as much as that moisture as possible through means of internal and external ways). The fat layer beneath our skin becomes thin, therefore making our skin become loose. Additionally the supply of elastin and collagen become lesser, which causes wrinkling as well due to the fact that elastin and collagen provide needed support to the skin. So then we get the dreaded wrinkle. Then we realize we need a wrinkle filler. Wrinkles can be beautiful as they show wisdom, and experience, yet for the most part we desire to age gracefully. To do this, we must eat beauty foods, stay away from being overexposed to the sun, take smoking & drinking excessively out of our lives, and nourish our skin with facials and moisturizers. OK, so now that we now why we get wrinkles and how to protect them, lets review some natural wrinkle filler solutions.

Solution 1 – Warm Paraffin mask

This mask acts as a wrinkle filler because is works to plump up wrinkles and renew the skin. This mask has an extraordinary effect. Not only does it lift out the dirt and impurities out of your skin, but it is an excellent wrinkle filler, it stimulates circulation, and give you a gorgeous glow.


1/3 block paraffin (about ½ cup)
1 teaspoon of one of the following: oat flour, white clay (dry or sensitive skin), or green clay (normal to oily skin)
1teaspoon dried lavender petals
1 teaspoon dried elder blossoms
1 teaspoon powdered frankincense
3 drops essential oil of lavender
2 drops essential oil of rose


Melt the paraffin and herbs in the top of a double boiler. Remove from fire, stir in the essential oils, and cool it until still warm but comfortable to the touch. Spread the warm wax on your throat, face, and hands, avoiding, your eyebrows and hair. Leave it on for 15 minutes, and then peel it off.
Variation: Melt pure beeswax beads instead of paraffin. Stir in a half teaspoon of almond oil.

Solution 2 – The Avocado Face Mask

This mask is a perfect wrinkle filler solution as it tones, firms, and moisturizes mature skin wonderfully. Avocado is rich in monounsaturated oils and Vitamin's A, C, & E. It rejuvenates and tones aging, dry skin. To make this mask, mash a half of a ripe avocado, spread it over your face and throat. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes, the rinse with tepid water. If you have oily skin then add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
Variation: For dry skin, add 1 beaten egg yolk to the avocado. If your skin is oily, add a beaten egg white with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.

Myrrh and white wine work to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and are another excellent natural wrinkle filler solution. The make a wrinkled face smooth, cast powder of myrrh, on a heated plate of iron, then sprinkle it with white wine, that the fumes may better rise, and binding up your forehead, hold your face over it on some distance, and in doing so several times, the fume will fill the empty pores, and cause a smoothness in the skin.

Solution 5 – Traditional Mask

Boil Four eggs in rosewater until they are firm. Add half an ounce alum and half an ounce of almond oil. Beat the mixture until it forms a paste. Spread on the face. This mixture will ward off wrinkles.

Solution 6 – Night Cream

This night cream famous since the time of the Crusades: Remove the yolks from 6 hard boiled eggs, replace with myrrh and powdered sugar candy in equal parts. Fit the halves of the eggs together and set on a plate before a fire. Mix the resulting liquor with 32 grams of fat pork until it forms a pomatum. Apply in the morning, let it dry, and wipe off carefully. (NB: Those unfortunate readers without fireplaces or fat pork may prefer to bake their store of melted sugar. The resulting liquid can be mixed with lard or coconut oil.)

Solution 7 – Antiaging cream

Half cup olive oil
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons shaved beeswax
1/8 teaspoon powdered gum benzoin
A pinch of boric acid
2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
2/3 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon dried gingko leaves
1 tablespoon dried comfrey leaves
1 tablespoon dried, powdered seaweed
1 teaspoon pulverized bee pollen
6 drops essential oil of lavender


Pour the boiling water over ginkgo, comfrey and seaweed and steep for 30 minutes. About ten minutes before the infusion is ready, place oil, wax, benzoin, and boric acid in the top of a double broiler, and heat gently until wax is melted. When the wax mixture is thick and opaque, but still liquid, it is ready to use. Strain herbal mixture and pour 1/3 cup into electric blender jar discarding remainder. Add bee pollen, set blender at highest speed, and whirr briefly. Add lavender to wax mixture and slowly pour the mixture into the blender. When the emulsion is thoroughly mixed, scrape down the sides of the jar and beat for another minute. Pour immediately into sterile glass jars, cool and refrigerate.
