If signs of aging are something you wish to correct, but you’d like to take a more gentle approach, then keep reading for five anti-aging alternatives to Botox. Not only will these treatments help to erase existing signs of aging, but they will also slow down the process tremendously! When making tips like these a regular practice, you’ll be looking younger and fresher in no time.
Get a facial:
One can never have too many facials, in our opinion. Think about what it is about your skin you would like to correct. Whether it’s fine lines, dehydration, acne, or dullness—there’s a facial to treat it, we promise.
Acupuncture is a natural form of ancient Chinese medicine that involves inserting tiny needles into different parts of the body to help with anything from backaches to migraines—and now, it’s even considered an anti-aging procedure. By having a professional insert these hair-like needles into certain vortex and pressure points, blood circulation improves and energy starts flowing more efficiently, allowing the body to rejuvenate and strengthen its own anti-aging powers.
Practice facial massages:
This is a simple, at-home practice that has big results. Think of it as a workout for your skin. Facial massage promotes blood flow and increases muscle tone. So not only will it brighten your complexion and encourage cell turnover, but it will also make your skin more taught and lifted.
Incorporate hyaluronic acid:
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, but as we get older, we need more and more of it because skin moisture drops significantly with age. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid can penetrate the skin’s upper layers, where it benefits tissue repair, skin elasticity, and hydration—all giving the skin that youthful appearance we all crave. It also protects the skin from the sun’s UVB rays.
