  1. Egg whites -Egg whites is the clear and sticky liquid contained in an egg that turns white once cooked or beaten. The egg white is rich in vitamins and proteins which help prevent wrinkles. It is also effective in tightening the skin and absorbing excess sebum which is an oily and waxy substance produced by your body's sebaceous glands. You can use egg whites as a face mask.
  2. Snail mucus (mucin) - Snail mucus or mucin is high in protein, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which helps delay ageing by repairing the damage caused by the sun. Snail mucin is a popular ingredient in Korean beauty products. Snail mucin is naturally excreted by snails and that is what they use to protect themselves.

3. Cucumber mask - The presence of water, vitamins and minerals in a cucumber can help tighten and hydrate the skin and also protect it from dryness. Grate the cucumber in a bowl then apply the juice on your face and rinse with water.

4. Super foods - These are foods rich in nutrients which help in preventing wrinkles e.g. Avocados, sweet potatoes, ginger, vegetables and tomatoes. People who eat these fruits and vegetables regularly, have very healthy skin. This is because they contain powerful antioxidants that help protect the skin from the damage caused by free radicals which cause age spots.
