Recipe for Reducing the Look of Wrinkles
You can plump facial wrinkles with Fennel. Using fennel seeds in boiling water creates a steam that will temporarily rehydrate wrinkled skin. Crush 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds and boil 3 cups of water. Carefully pour the water into a glass or ceramic bowl. Add the crush seeds and 2 drops of essential oil of your choice. Put a towel over your head and hold your face at least 12 inches away for the steam for 10 minutes. Next, apply a moisturizer and you are good to go!
Author Stephanie Tourles is a licenced holistic esthetician in both Maine and Massachusetts with over 20 years experience. “This steam has a slippery, moisturizing quality and it’s also Good for rough, chapped skin.” She cautions people with roseacea or spider veins that this steaming could aggravate these conditions. Tourles advises using warm compresses of fennel tea instead.
Fennel tincture, tea and capsules can be purchased in health food stores and online.
