Wrinkles are fine lines that occur under your eyes, on your face, on your neck and/or on any other part of your skin. In other words they are delicate creases which develop due to sagging and thin skin.
Though it is a natural process and when you grow too old it start occurring on your face and whole body, it should not appear when you are still young. Wrinkles spoil your beauty and let others feel that you have grown old.
Collagen and elastin are two vital components which keep your skin young and beautiful and also prevent sagging. But when these components decrease wrinkles start appearing on your skin. Wrinkles also appear due to stress, unhealthy lifestyle, unhealthy foods, less consumption of water etc.
If you are not too old you can prevent wrinkles or get rid of wrinkles through home remedies. Given below are 7 effective home remedies for wrinkles which you may find to be useful.

Honey is considered as one of the best home remedies to get rid of wrinkles. Wrinkles start forming when your skin loses its moisture but honey contains humectants compounds. These compounds are very effective in retaining moisture in your skin which eventually prevents skin dryness and wrinkle formation. This compound also promotes absorption of moisture which makes your skin glow and shine.
You can apply honey on your affected part by rubbing it gently over the affected area where wrinkles have developed. Allow it to remain there for 20-30 minutes then wash it with plane water. But if you mix equal amount of honey and milk together and apply it on your affected part it would provide you double benefits because milk contains lactic acid. This acid is one kind of alpha – hydroxy acid which is well known acid to cure many skin problems. This acid cleans the dead cells which remain present on your skin and make your skin appear dull, and this acid also cleans the skin pores.
Lactic acid or hydroxy acid also promotes the secretion of collagen which is very important component to keep your skin young and to prevent wrinkles. As stated above, reduction of collagen component leads to the formation of wrinkles; hence milk plays vital role in restoring collagen.
When you apply the mixture of honey and milk on your affected area/skin, it increases its elasticity and provides hydration and moisture. Gradually you will observe that by regular use of this mixture, your wrinkles are diminishing.
