Green tea can help fight wrinkles

5 tips for fighting wrinkles

Experts give their advice for fighting wrinkles.

Serve tea and cucumber

“When my eyes look puffy or tired, I soak chamomile tea bags in cold water and place them over my eyelids for 10 minutes. It leaves me with pepped-up peepers.

“To temporarily tighten the complexion, I place chilled slices of cucumbers on my eyes and cheeks.”

Rivka Rose, founder, Faith In Nature skincare faithinnature.co.uk

Try “Oil Pulling”

“To maintain youthful skin I do the Ayurvedic practice of ‘oil pulling’.

“I take a teaspoon of organic sesame oil, swish it in my mouth for a minute each morning and then spit it out. It helps detoxify the body and improve skin.”

Dr Pauline Hili, founder, Nourish Skin Range, nourishskinrange.com

Drink green tea

“I drink a cup of green tea daily and keep a punnet of blueberries at my desk to nibble.

“They both provide a powerful dose of protective antioxidants that keep wrinkles at bay.”

Kristy Cimesa, founder, Elemental Herbology, elementalherbology.com

Tuck into honey

“I’m a great believer in using natural ingredients. Getting more honey in your diet is great for the face. It’s good at helping the skin absorb moisture.”

Helen Ambrosen, co-founder and product inventor, Lush, lush.co.uk

Use an ice pack

“To stimulate my skin cells, shrink fluid retention and reduce redness and visible capillaries, I wrap ice in a muslin cloth and roll it all over my face.

“It leaves you with a rosy, youthful complexion.”

Facialist Sarah Chapman sarahchapman.net
