  • Is there a primal way to stop wrinkles / lines developing?

    I'm developing lines on my face! Under the eyes and beside the eyes - I've lost about 18 lbs and I think it may have something to do with it (also I'm well into my 50s so that might help too!!!) But I don't want to suddenly look old just because of lines appearing - is there anything I can eat - or rub on / in - that helps?

    Preferably not scented or full of chemicals - I'm a guy and don't want to smell like someones granny ( no offence to all the grannies there might be reading this...!)

    Facial exercises. I do them and they do make a difference. I am a girl, but boys do them too.

      I've never used any facial exercises but I do use moisturizers, one specifically for around the eyes. I also use a sunblock on my face and a couple of body parts. If you have a health food store nearby go in and explain what you're looking for. I can't wear anything that's got much of a scent because I'm allergic. There are several on the market that aren't too scented or are made specifically for men.

          Mush up an avocado and smear it on your face. Leave it on for half an hour, then rinse off gently with lukewarm water. Works a dream!!!

            Ooh, something else to do with that half of an avocado that doesn't get eaten!

              My mother uses Made from Earth skin products and she had always tell me that I might like to try them. I started using facial cream when I turned 30. I've tried a couple of brands, then finally come down to 2 brands.

              Made from Earth got my attention when I heard the advertisement that it sold out within the first 17 minutes when it launched. So I went around looking for it. After more researching, I said to myself that it will be worth trying.

              After using their pH Equilibrant Moisturizer for 1 month now, I can see less wrinkle, fine line and smoother skin compare to other products that I have used in the past. It doesn't leave any feeling that you have any cream on which I like and the scent is very mild which I also like. It lasted for more than a month per bottle and I use it every night. It is definitely the best cream and I have ever try.

                How is your sleep? Do you sleep on your stomach with your face in the pillow? I think that is a large part of reducing wrinkles, quality sleep and not sleeping on your face. A paleo/primal diet should be good for your skin overall because whole foods have much more water in them, plus you should be getting a fair share of essential fats which are great for your skin.

                People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                  I sleep on my side/stomach with face planted in pillow and at 35, I have no wrinkles whatsoever. Considering that all of my sisters had crows feet/laugh lines in their late 20's I must be doing something right.

                    When I went primal a couple of months ago, I also started putting a light layer of coconut oil on my face at night. I'm not sure if it's the diet or the oil, but the fine lines that were developing on my face are gone. I'm pretty damn happy about it.

                      I agree with the pillow idea Ive been using thebeautypillow which is satin but its quite fancy in the fact it flows which means I dont have to worry about sleeping on my back or burying my head in the pillow,

                        coconut and avocado oils are great skin restorers -- you can put them directly on your skin. my husband also uses seabuckthorn oil.

                          I look many years younger than my 51years. All my adult life I've taken good care of my skin, using the best products. You could say that it has something to do with being half Asian, but who knows. Anyway, get an eye cream, a night cream, and a good daily moisturizer. Do facial massage and exercise - do a search on Youtube for Jack Lalanne - he has some. Eat cleanly and Primally.

                          I get more sun now but I still shade my face with a hat.

                            I use macadamia oil on my face and neck every night before bed. Feels great!
