Anti aging home remedies and tricks and tips and secrets are everywhere. Eat right, sleep more, yada yada yada. The trick is to find ones that are different and reliable.

Here are some anti aging home remedies that you hopefully haven't seen before, aren't everywhere and are reliable, as well.

Anti-aging home remedies and crow's feet.

Women tend to worry about wrinkles anywhere, but when they look in the mirror and see wrinkles on their face, around their mouth, to the sides of their eyes...

If you are worried about crow's feet, here's one home remedy:

You're going to need Aloe Vera gel, Vitamin A gel capsules (get the highest concentration that you can), a bowl, a spoon, and a safety pin. You can get the first two at a health food store. You can get the bowl and the spoon in your kitchen (an assumption on my part). Get the safety pins from wherever you keep them.

Take one Vitamin A capsule and prick a hole in one end. Squeeze the content out and combine it with and a tablespoon of Aloe Vera gel and mix them together (well) in the bowl.

Gently pat some of the mixture around each eye. The Vitamin A treats the area around the eye, and the Aloe Vera gel helps your eye absorb it.

Do this once a night and you could start to see results as early as in two weeks. Give it a month, though; it's more realistic.

Great "aging eye" cream.

Need a anti aging home remedy for those eyes of yours?

If you look at pictures of yourself in your twenties, thirties, forties, etc., you'll see how your eyes just get older and older. It's not bad, it's just the way of the world. Or the world of aging. Or whatever.

To alleviate this "aged-eye-look" as much as possible (you are a woman of the world, after all, and no amount of cream can ever cover the wisdom in your eyes), take some of that Vitamin A (gel or oil) that you got at the health food store and mix it with your regular moisturizer (two thirds Vitamin A, one third moisturizer).

Now gently pat the area around your eye with it. It works wonders! (Note: Use a moisturizer that will not hurt your eyes. Duh.)

Great "aging eye" gel.

Your eyes just give your age away in too many ways, don't they? Here's how to make some eye gel that really rejuvenates your eyes:

What you need:

1 cucumber, de-seeded and peeled
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of Aloe Vera gel (Now aren't you glad you went to the health food store?)
Green tea
Chamomile tea
A bowl
A spoon
Note: You don't need a lot of the teas; a cup of each will do.

What to do:

Combine the cucumber, honey, and Aloe Vera gel together until well-mixed. Then add some green tea and chamomile tea to it a little at a time; don't make the gel too thin.

Now stick it in the fridge to chill. When it's completely chilled, pat (never rub, your eye area is very sensitive and the skin is very thin) the gel around your eyes and leave it on.

You should do this every night as part of your skin regimen.

Anti aging home remedy for around-the-mouth (frown) lines/around-the-mouth-lines.

You know those lines that form around your mouth and then just get deeper and deeper? Here's how to (help) get rid of them:

Since you are probably going to have to go back to the health food store to get some more Vitamin A, while you're there, pick up some Vitamin C powder. Take a little moisturizer and mix enough Vitamin C powder in it to make it easy to apply and rub it into the frown lines around and/or above your mouth.

After you've rubbed that in, take a Vitamin A capsule, prick a hole in the end, and gently tap all of its contents into the lines in your lips over the mixture you just put on.

Leave it on overnight and use it as part of your skin care regimen for frown lines.

A (kind of) anti aging home remedy for loose neck skin.

The older you get, the more your skin gets - um - less tight - less rigid - well - loose. And when the skin on your neck gets loose, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it. There are face exercises (some that include the neck), but a lot of them seem to just kind of stretch your face and don't do a lot for your neck. However, women seem to be very impressed with this one, so here goes:

Try to touch to your tongue to your nose. Don't use your fingers to push your nose down to touch your tongue; that's cheating and won't help your neck at all.
Do this (rather silly-looking) exercise wherever you want, although you might want to stick to doing it when you're alone or with a toddler that tends to laugh at funny faces.

And speaking of an anti aging home remedy for loose neck skin...

This next tip is pretty weird. It works, though, and that's the important thing.

You're going to need a roll of gauze, mashed potatoes, a spoon, and a warm towel.

Take a piece of gauze that is long enough to wrap around your neck and lay enough warm (not luke-warm, not hot) mashed potatoes to cover the gauze. Since you're going to pick up the gauze to wrap around your neck and you don't want mashed potatoes all over the place, cover that with an equally long piece of gauze.

In other words, the whole thing has three layers: Gauze on the bottom, mashed potatoes in the middle, gauze on the top. Gauze works better than an Ace bandage because it's thinner.

Now take the whole thing and wrap it around your neck. Lie down and put a warm towel over it. Leave it on twenty minutes, or until it's cool.
Take it off and apply moisturizer.

Do this once a week (or more, depending on how much it's working).

If you would like to age a little easier without breaking the bank, give these remedies a try! They really do work.
