I want Botox. Not Real Housewives of _________ City Botox, but baby Botox. Small, tiny injections of Botox that will help me age gracefully and slowly. But, I won’t get Botox. Why? One: I am deathly afraid of needles. Two: I can’t get over the thought of poison being shot into my forehead. So, I guess I should say that I like the idea of Botox. I like the idea of something softening my fine lines and helping my sun-ravaged skin look a few years younger than it really is. I never want to look frozen or like I am trying be decades younger than I am, but I want to wake up when I am 45 and have people say, “No. Really? I would have thought you were 38.” Am I the only one?
Preventative care is imperative to my future face. Right? I am hoping that by doing small things now, I can avoid having to do drastic things later. So, in an effort to avoid the ‘tox, I have been doing several things.
I have already spoken about my love of at-home peels. They are fantastic. My skin feels smooth, firm, and clear after a peel. I do them weekly.
I slather my skin morning and night with multiple creams. I have yet to find something I am 100% committed to, so I change every year or so. Have one you love? I’d love to know about it.
My newest obsession is the Nu Skin ageLOC Galvanic Spa. Yes, it was pricey, but worth every penny. Every single one.
There are tons of very science-y facts about why this is great. All I know is I love it. My skin feels clean and bright after I use it and the lines on my forehead are much less pronounced. My mom bought one too and I can’t tell you how much firmer, smoother, and brighter her skin is. Seriously. The difference in my skin wasn’t as drastic as hers, but I am still beyond pleased. I am hoping that this little device, my peels, and my creams will help stay looking youthful.
