Wrinkles, which are a result of volume loss and aging skin, are totally natural. Still, it’s normal to feel embarrassed about them, especially if you feel like they make you look older than you think. Many people go to great lengths to stop or fix wrinkles, including complex skincare practices, surgeries, or injections. Are you one of them? Are you worried about wrinkles, looking for a DIY Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, here is a simple method with natural ingredient that is Horsetail, suggested by an expert from beauty salons in Fredericton.
Horsetail (Botanic Name Equisetum arvense) is also called Field horsetail, scouring rush, bottlebrush, pewterwort, corncob plant, and shave grass
Horsetail is an herbaceous perennial with a hairy, tuberous rhizome. The stems are straight, without hair or leaves, and have black-toothed coverings with swirls of spreading green branches. Field horsetail is usually found among the temperate environments within Asia, Europe, and North America.
Fredericton spa says, most recently, we found out evidence about the incredible advantages of field horsetail in decreasing wrinkles from the face. This actually was not the first time I had heard about this remarkable plant, and my grandma used to swear by it.
Then I did research, and I found that horsetail is full in vegetable silica, which has a smoothing and softening effect on the skin, as well as improving and refreshing the connective tissue, the base of your skin and reinforcing skin cells. The minerals such as magnesium, manganese, copper, and iron contained in this plant are essential for elastic biosynthesis, and collagen. At the same time, the natural silicon will link the formed collagen fibers and therefore help the rejuvenation of connective tissue.
I decided to test the field horsetail herb, and my brave subject was a friend of my family. She is 49 years old, and she has very deep wrinkles around her eyes. I suspect that she got these wrinkles because of at all times lying out in the sun without sunscreen, and her skin is wrinkled, dry, and the color of grilled fish. My apologies!
I made an infusion of horsetail (mix with olive oil), and I gave it to her to test. She started to use it every night before bed, and after a couple of weeks, she noticed:
- A substantial reduction in wrinkles around the eye area.
- A lessening in the bags underneath the eyes.
I was satisfied with the results of this trial, and we continued to try to see what outcomes we would discover. I am going to make an anti-wrinkle lotion with the field horsetail infusion and other organic ingredients to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
Here are some other problems that you may also treat with Field horsetail:
- Double chin
- Stretch Marks
- Facial swelling
- Bags underneath the eyes
- Varicose and spider veins (It’s still in the trial but getting excellent results)
- Brittle nails
This natural ingredient can be used as a powder, infusion, and hydrosol or in the brewed form.
