There used to be a time when wrinkles used to occur only during old age and then their occurrence in the middle-20’s came off as socially aberrant. Nowadays, several factors, like severe distress, sleep deprivation, a busy lifestyle, and an unhealthy, inadequate diet that frequently results in skin damage, ultimately pave their way to fine lines and wrinkles. You surely don’t want to go through the painstaking botox treatment that is usually favoured by most of the celebrities. Wrinkles are also called, ‘rhytides’. It’s when the collagen and elastin fibres start to degrade that the onset of fine lines and wrinkles actually begin. Given below are some of the natural DIY primers that you might want to skim through and eventually try out.

The Best DIY Primers for Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The Best DIY Primers for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

DIY Primer #1

What all would you be requiring?

  • An Aloe Vera gel.
  • A liquid-based foundation.
  • Sunscreen. (optional)
  • Face powder. (loose)
  • Any moisturizer of your choice.
  • A container for the purpose of storage.

What all steps will you be carrying out?

  1. Begin by taking an equal 1:1 ratio of any moisturizer of your choice and an Aloe Vera gel.
  2. Add a minuscule blob of sunscreen to it, which in turn is optional for you to decide.
  3. Put some drops of the liquid foundation on top of it.
  4. Then, add some pinches of loose facial powder.
  5. Amalgamate everything carefully with the help of a wooden spoon, or a spatula.
  6. You should be able to get a paste with a smooth consistency and if you don’t, then it subtly implies that either you have added dollops of a foundation or any moisturizer in excessive quantities.
  7. You can make the consistency level even by adding more of loose facial powder and Aloe Vera gel.
  8. Apply the primer that’s been formed onto your face. Let it get entrenched into your skin fully.

Note:

If you have extremely dry skin, you could change the ratio to 1:1.5 and if you have a way too oily skin, you could change the ratio to 1.5:1. (Vice-versa)

DIY Primer #2

What all would you be requiring?

  • Around a 1/3rd cup of Aloe Vera leaves (and not gel)
  • A teaspoon of extra virgin coconut oil.
  • Blended foundation.

What all steps will you be carrying out?

  1. Take about 1/3rd cup of Aloe Vera leaves and transfer all their contents into a bowl.
  2. Melt extra virgin coconut oil on the stove top, or in a microwave.
  3. Blend the melted extra virgin coconut oil with about 1/3rd cup of Aloe Vera leaves and add in any blended foundation of your choice along with it.
  4. Keep mixing all these above-mentioned 3 ingredients together until you procure an even consistency.
  5. Apply this primer after you moisturize your face, keep it on for drying, and apply your makeup as you usually do.

A piece of advice:

If you have kept the coconut oil in the fridge for cooling purpose, take it out and let it liquefy, before you actually shower, or wash off your hair.

Note:

This DIY primer can do wonders for your wrinkles if the coconut oil is not completely in its melted state and is slightly thick and the Aloe Vera leaves are fully mashed in order to keep the primer smooth.
