Boil one sweet potato for 30 min­utes (or mi­crowave for ten min­utes), cool, peel and mash with four or five ta­ble­spoons of full-fat plain yogurt. Ap­ply to the wrin­kles on the cor­ners of your eyes, leave for 15 min­utes, wash off with warm wa­ter. Sweet pota­toes are a rich source of vi­ta­min A in the form of beta-carotene, a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant sim­i­lar to the main in­gre­di­ent in the tra­di­tional sk­in­care treat­ments RetinA and retinol. The lac­tic acid in the yo­ghurt acts as a gen­tle ex­fo­lia­tor. This rem­edy can re­duce wrin­kles both im­me­di­ately and in the longer term.
