Aging affects everyone. But for women in particular, the most bothersome is none other than wrinkles, the aging sign of the skin. Most women want to achieve and maintain youthful skin, which is wrinkle-free and supple, but very few know how to do it.

There are a lot of different skin care products designed for anti aging purposes, so it might be hard to choose one that will work the best for your skin. And chance is the one that does work a miracle costs an arm and a leg. Fortunately, there are a few budget-friendly alternatives we can try.

The first one is castor oil. No need to pay hundreds for a bottle. Women of the olden days have used this item to smooth wrinkles around their eyes. As it is definitely natural oil, so it should be safe. You only need to massage castor oil around the eye area before bedtime to get fresh looking skin when you wake up in the morning.

Another home remedy for wrinkles is orange juice, used topically. Soak cotton pads in orange juice, place them on the eyes, then sit back and relax for around ten minutes. The chemical compounds within orange juice will help toning and tightening the skin, and thus reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Your daily meals have to be balanced, full of antioxidants and vitamins (especially vitamin A through E) as buffer against free radicals and the loss of elasticity.
