Anti Aging Natural Remedies for Under $15 That Work
By Natasha Turner
The anti-aging skin industry is worth billions. Chances are you’ve realized that in many cases that’s money down the drain as so many of these products don’t live up to their promise to rejuvenate. What pushers of high-cost beauty products don’t want you to know is that anti aging natural remedies for less than $15 can be even more effective at helping you to look young. Some may even extend your life. Here are just a few you can try.
AHA or BHA Serums
Alpha-hydroxy acids, such as glycolic or lactic acid, and the beta hydroxy acid salicylic acid, are also affordable anti-aging products you can try. They help to treat superficial lines and wrinkles, fade age or sun spots and improve the tone of your skin. You don’t need to buy an expensive chemical peel kit to try these rejuvenating treatments. Try serums or liquids bottled individually, such as Derma-E’s Alpha Hydroxy Acids Beauty Fluid. If you’ve never used AHAs or BHAs anti aging natural remedies before, start with a serum that has a concentration of 15 percent acid or less and apply as often as directed. If you experience excessive irritation, use these products less frequently.
Protecting telomeres is the latest focus of anti-aging research. Think of telomeres as the “caps” found at the tips of DNA strands. Every time cell replicates, telomeres protect DNA strands from becoming damaged. However, telomeres get shorter during cell replication — and once they’re too short they stop replicating, leading to cellular aging.
But don’t bother shelling out money on pricey supplements marketed as “telomere support.” You may not think of multivitamins as anti aging natural remedies, but they are. With ingredients such as antioxidant vitamins, resveratrol and essential fatty acids, multivitamins help telomeres to keep their length. Pick up multivitamins for less than $15 at your local pharmacies and other stores that sell them. Or, find coupons on a variety of multivitamin brands at sites such as GroceryCouponNetwork.com. If you have a medical condition, consult your doctor before taking vitamin supplements.
Believe it or not, that small container of floss can help to fight aging and lengthen your life. According to Michael C. Roizen, author of The Real Age Makeover, brushing and flossing your teeth daily prevents periodontal disease and gingivitis, which can help to extend your life by as much as 6.4 years! Flossing may also reduce your risk of conditions that can expedite aging, heart disease and diabetes. You can find floss for a few bucks at your pharmacy or supermarket, or buy it in bulk at big box stores such as Amazon or Costco so you never run out.
Keep gray hairs at bay with this herb that has long been used for longevity in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It’s a root of the knotweed family and is available in powder, capsule or tincture form. It also goes by the names Polygonum multiflorum, or in Chinese, he-shou-wu. You’ll find Fo-Ti anti aging natural remedies in Chinese herbal stores, natural health stores or online from reputable sellers.
First, however, consult a TCM practitioner or a naturopath to take this herb safely to preserve your hair color. Taken incorrectly it may cause allergic reactions, liver problems and loose stools. If you have a personal or family history of estrogenic cancers, such as breast or ovarian, or of prostate cancer, do not take this her without medical advice as Fo-Ti has strong estrogenic effects and its effects on these types of cancers are unknown.
It doesn’t matter what type of age-defying skin cream, lotion or serum you’re using: If you’re not also using a sunscreen — preferably a natural or organic brand — you’re setting your fight against skin aging w-a-a-a-y back. The sun’s UVA rays are the leading cause of premature skin aging, penetrating deep into your skin to form lines, wrinkles and spots and giving your skin a leathery look.
With that in mind, sunscreens are the most important anti aging natural remedies for keeping skin looking young. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF at least 20 minutes before you leave home, even in winter or cloudy weather. If you get wet, reapply it. You won’t have any problem finding sunscreens for under $15 at local pharmacies and other stores, or online.
