There are simply so many types of wrinkles that can appear on the face, so much so that each one of them is called by a name. Lines that appear on the corners of the mouth and go down to the jaw line are christened marionette lines, and reading on will get you introduced to some of the best home remedies for them.
It’s obvious how marionette lines got their name — actual marionettes have them so that their mouths can be opened. What’s so terrible about marionette lines is they can make anyone’s face appear aged, always there no matter if the individual is talking, eating, drinking, smiling or doing absolutely nothing at all.
Some women, in particular those who have lots and lots of money, prefer to deal with marionette lines by undergoing the knife. Through cosmetic surgery, those unsightly lines can be remedied in an instant. However, everyone knows that cosmetic surgery is something that does not come cheap, plus it can come with risks and side effects.
If you don’t want to be buried in debt and you also don’t want risks, then undergoing the knife is definitely not the best remedy for your marionette lines. There is no need to worry because it is very much possible to improve their appearance through some all-natural means. Some of the best ones are:
Morning and night, apply freshly-squeezed lemon juice on your marionette lines and allow it to stay there for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off with water. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which is needed for collagen synthesis. Collagen is a type of protein that makes the skin firm, causing those marionette lines to go away.
It’s also a good idea for you to regularly consume foods that are rich in vitamin C, from various citrus and tropical fruits to leafy green vegetables. By supplying your body with enough vitamin C, it can produce lots of collagen than can improve the appearance not only of marionette lines, but also any other wrinkle on your face.
Not happy with the stinging sensation that lemon juice brings most especially on the corners of your mouth each time you employ it for eliminating marionette lines? Fret not because there is a sting-free replacement for it, and that’s egg white. All you have to do is smear it on your marionette lines, and wash off with water once completely dry.
Some women who prefer to deal with their marionette lines without undergoing the knife swear that egg white works so much better when combined with a little honey — egg white supplies protein that helps tighten skin, while honey yields antioxidants that repair damaged skin cells.
When avocado is in season, it’s the perfect time to get rid of those pesky marionette lines. That’s because avocado is loaded with vitamin E that moisturizes and repairs skin deeply, thus helping to make your marionette lines appear less noticeable. Just mash it, apply it, and then rinse it off after about 15 to 20 minutes.
Do not worry if the avocado season is no longer around because there is an alternative home remedy for marionette lines that is available all year round, and that is the gel inside an aloe vera leaf. All you need to do is harvest a little of this slimy substance and smear on your marionette lines. After about 10 minutes, remove with water thoroughly.
