My Botox-Free Routine
You’ve asked…now I’m gonna answer! (Honestly people, some of these questions I get asked, crack me up!) Let me first start by saying, I’m a huge supporter of doing whatever you want to your face and skin in regards to fillers, botox, plastic surgery etc. So I’m not knocking it in any way. I just have to laugh a bit when people find out my age and they always say “How?” I then have to go into my usual routine of making all of these crazy faces and moving my forehead to show them I don’t have botox. With that being said, I wanted to share some of my favorite products that have allowed me to stay Botox-Free for years. It’s really pretty simple ladies, all you have to do is put in the effort!
So here it goes; I’m a huge fan of taking care of my skin in general. Duh! But it is the targeted products I use that take my routine to another level. There are so many layers to this post, I guess I will start from the ground up! First and foremost, I use my beloved Clairsonic morning and night. If you don’t have perfectly clean skin, your products will never be able to do what they are supposed to do. I always, and I mean ALWAYS, use a primer targeted for firming and wrinkles. Morning and night..it’s a must! A rich moisturizer and eye cream and of course the key to aging gracefully…SUNBLOCK.
Now on to the specifics. Three times a week, I use the Instant Radiance Scrub by Eclos. It instantly softens any fine lines I have in a matter of minutes. It is gentle but effective and is one of my holy grail products I have used for 5 plus years. Once I have used the scrub to slough off the dead skin, I immediately layer on my MURAD Age Diffusing Firming Mask. This mask is pure heaven. It tightens, softens and tones in 15 minutes flat and leaves my skin perfectly plump.
At least twice a week, especially if I’ve had a rather late night, I use the Bliss Oxygen Facial Mask. I have been using this oxygen facial for at least 7 years and would NOT be without it. It takes my skin from dull to vibrant in 5 minutes flat! It also feels amazing and allows me to relax, even if it’s only for 5 minutes!
So, as you can see, from my experience, it isn’t just one product that keeps me botox-free, it’s an arsenal! Now I’m not saying I might not ever need botox at some point, but for now, I’ve got this handled. Take it from me, you can do this too! I’m a girl that is constantly making crazy faces all day long. Unfortunately my face & expressions say it all. I can never hide how I’m truly feeling, which can be a good thing or bad! But as long as it’s not causing more wrinkles, I will continue to live my life with FULL EXPRESSION!
