Who doesn’t want to stay young forever? But no one can escape the inevitable touch of time that manifests itself through a myriad of signs, wrinkles and skin spots being the first among others. Though we cannot stop time from touching us, we can delay our ageing process for sure.
Scientific research in the field of anti-ageing also shows us rays of hope. In a study conducted at the University of New South Wales, researchers have identified a drug that can boost your DNA repair and reverse ageing. The findings of the study were mentioned in the journal Science where the scientists mentioned that the metabolite NAD+, a coenzyme present in every living cell plays a pivotal role in regulating the protein-to-protein interactions which manage your DNA repair. During the study, when the scientists treated mice with an NAD+ precursor known as MNM, they noted a significant improvement in the ability of mice cells to repair DNA damage which may have occurred due to radiation exposure or ageing. The lead author of the study, David Sinclair elucidated that the results of the study may lead to an actual anti-ageing drug which could enter the market soon.
While anti-ageing drugs can be a reality in the near or slightly distant future, here are easy-to-use home remedies for your skin to that will keep you looking young even after you have those grey streaks. These are way better than the commercially available anti-ageing skin products. They carry harmful chemicals which can trigger an allergic reaction on your skin, lead to an acne breakout, cause red patches, or even lead to inflammation.
Make your own anti-ageing cream
As explained earlier, buying an anti-ageing cream from the market can have its own set of side effects. Instead of spending money on beauty products that pose danger to your skin, you can make your own anti-ageing cream at home with the help of natural ingredients. All the essentials you require to create your own anti-ageing cream can be found easily in your kitchen. All you need is coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and beeswax.
Rx: Mix coconut oil and beeswax and boil the mixture twice. Then, as soon as you remove the mixture from heat, add vitamin E oil along with a few drops of any essential oil. Let it cool and store in a glass jar. Apply the mixture in circular motion on your skin. Leave it overnight and wash it off in the morning. Follow this routine every day to get the best results.
