While we have no control over nature's course, the first signs of facial wrinkles can show up even before we hit our thirties. Despite its natural occurrence, few women embrace the look of deepening furrows on their face. But applying cream and massaging is not enough. Enter flaxseed, touted as nature's miracle worker, which can effectively smoothen your skin, provided you know how to use it properly.

How does flaxseed smoothen your wrinkles?

Usually, we associate flaxseeds with culinary uses, such as bread garnishing or oil production. Consuming flaxseeds indeed plays an important role in regulating digestive processes. However, in this context, we are not advocating drinking it; instead, we'll be applying it to the face. Using flaxseed oil could improve skin conditions and reduce emerging wrinkles, provided you apply it regularly and ensure the product's quality.

The oil extracted from flaxseeds is naturally hydrating, and health experts often compare its benefits to a natural emollient. Thanks to its high content of vitamins and fatty acids, it retards the skin's aging processes. Using the oil regularly for a few weeks makes the skin more resilient and firm. There are two effective application methods to achieve these effects. Read on to find detailed instructions on how to use this product on your skin. Gradually, your wrinkles will become less and less noticeable!

What are these home remedies for wrinkle reduction?

Wishing to erase time from your face? Start using flaxseed oil as a natural serum. A few drops are sufficient for one application. Warm the oil by rubbing it in your hands before gently massaging it into your facial skin. Avoid any abrupt movements or excessive skin stretching. Just "nourishing" your face with this essence could help diminish the prominence of wrinkles.

The second way of leveraging the exceptional properties of this product is to create a homemade lifting mask from flaxseeds. Soaking the seeds in hot water will metamorphose them into a sticky substance that's perfect for your needs. Although you can strain the "gooey" matter from the seeds using a cheesecloth or sieve, it's not a requirement. Once you prepare the mass, apply it on your face and massage for a few minutes, then let it sit for 15-20 minutes. After this period, rinse off any residue and follow your usual skincare regimen. You can use this method daily, like any other skincare product. Regular use is the key to visible wrinkle reduction.
