Wonderful Homemade Facial Masks in Your 40's - Wrinkle Masks

Updated on December 12, 2017

It is time now that you may observe some wrinkles, dry skin and sagging face. Changes in face skin at the age of 40 are not limited to superficial changes, but they may involve the deeper layers like the dermis which contains the proteins, Collagen and Elastin. It is the abundance and integrity of these 2 proteins, that keep the skin looking healthy,flexible and wrinkle free.

With age, the amount of collagen and elastin decreases, collagen becomes less elastic and more tense and Elastin becomes more fragile, and these changes lead to the dull sagging face.

There are attempts to introduce collagen into the skin through cosmetics, yet they are not very successful (can cream delivers collagen like the injections do?)
The good news is that there are many nutrients that can help produce collagen and elastin, and there are also nutrients that help prevent their deterioration.
This is the real value of masks made of natural ingredients at home.

Nutrients that are required to produce and maintain collagen and Elastin includes vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin E, micro elements like Copper, and amino acids like Lysine.

While you will read about masks for the different stages of 40's, you are not required to stick your same age because, you don't know which change in your skin is more predominant, consequently you may use masks for other ages than yours like, masks for early, medium, or late 40's, they are all safe.

Best Homemade Mask in your Early 40's

1 Tablespoon ------- Broccoli florets
1 Tablespoon ------- Sweet Peas
1 Tablespoon ------- Orange juice
1 Tablespoon ------- Molasses

Method :
Blend all the ingredients in a processor. Apply to your skin and leave for 20 minutes. Wash using cold or warm water. Steam the Broccoli for 5 minutes if you need to

This mask enables you to start your 40's by erasing the damaging changes developed in your collagen due to internal cross linking of the molecule. Peas contain an enzyme inhibitor (2 amino-propionitrile) that inhibits an enzyme (Lysyl Oxidase) that is responsible for collagen cross linking.

Lysine and vitamin C present in Broccoli, orange juice, and yogurt, are required for the synthesis of both collagen and elastin.

Broccoli is rich with antioxidants, it also protects the skin from sun damaging effects.

Start building some collagen and elastin (at any stage of your 40's). To build them you need the amino acid Lysine, vitamin C, vitamin E, and Copper.

Sunflower seed is a rich source of both Copper and vitamin E, Broccoli is a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants which help protect collagen and elastin.

      Milk is a lactic acid. Great for face. Baking soda is a great PH balancer....but don't use both together. The soda will neutralize the lactic acid. Use the soda afterwards to return your ph back to normal....
