To Botox or Not.
Problem: Hi Tia, love your stuff! I wanted to ask, since you talk about natural remedies, but what do you think about botox for skin care?
Cosmetic procedures, which I think do have positive
effects on certain individuals, benefits skin that has lost elasticity,
hydration and reduced collagen, which are all factors that are harder to maintain
naturally, when it comes with maturing. Also, botox is great for those
that have sun damage in lines of facial expression, to allow that
surface to heal flat, not within a crevice.
I think the earlier you start your skin care treatments, the longer lasting results are, to keep good skin.
But, I don’t think that means run out and get major cosmetic treatments, first. There are great ways to keep your skin youthful, yes, naturally.
And for those teenagers, already thinking about getting botox, you should know that your skin still
has a bunch of natural elements, where powerful chemicals could be completely unnecessary right now. Prevention is a major factor with other, simpler regimens.
But, if you are just starting to see signs of aging, you can prevent or slow down the process with good diet; fish, veggies and nuts, limit sun exposure with sun block and SPF, vitamins and herbals, drink plenty of water and try the newest trend, facial yoga. Which that will help the face muscles build strength and elasticity.
After trying all that, if you are still unhappy or the process of aging is further along then you’d like, then, make an appointment with a well respected doctor and you can discuss your options. Remember botox lasts for several months in the system, and there are other brands out there than Botox that do the same thing yet, have different ingredients. One product is made with yeast while the other, is made with lactose and cow protein. If you have reoccurring fungal infections talk to you doctor, and they may suggest staying away from the yeast based one. The point I’m trying to make is, do your research, before you act.
