If you regularly drink from a straw or smoke, you may notice lines around your mouth. Wrinkles are also caused by age, sun damage or even weight loss. While there are cosmetic procedures available to address wrinkle concerns, such as Botox injections, you can save some money by trying natural remedies first.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a natural antioxidant and moisturiser that will plump wrinkles and ward off the free radicals that cause future wrinkles. Massage a few drops of coconut oil into the wrinkles around your mouth. Massaging your face will increase circulation and strengthen facial muscles while the coconut oil works to diminish wrinkles.

Lemon Juice

Cut a lemon in half and dab around mouth or apply lemon juice to your wrinkles. The acid in a lemon naturally tightens the skin while the high concentration of Vitamin-C helps neutralise free radicals.

Cream, Honey and Olive Oil Mask

Mix cream (or milk), honey and olive oil. Massage the mixture in to your face and let it sit for about ten minutes and then gently wash it off. The cream helps fight wrinkles due to its lactic acid content, olive oil is a natural moisturiser and skin smoother while honey improves blood circulation. Wrinkles around the mouth are generally deep so using a multi-ingredient mask is beneficial.

Combine a mashed avocado, honey and egg yolk. Massage the mask into wrinkles and let it sit for about ten minutes before washing off. Avocado plumps wrinkles and moisturises skin while the egg tightens skin and honey increases circulation.
