Ancient Egyptians gifted us with some of the best skincare secrets. Their desire for healthy, youthful skin was widely regarded for women and men. Due to the importance of looking ageless, we get to reap the benefits of their beauty products today.

This ancient recipe will help you keep premature wrinkles at bay. It consists of sweet almond oil and frankincense.

Sweet almond oil contains vitamins E and K to aid skin regeneration. It's a light oil that soaks into the skin rapidly leaving a silky smooth finish.

Frankincense combats inflammation, regenerates skin cells and reduces the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
