Botox is NOT the answer.
The search for the best way to preserve a youthful appearance by diminishing fine lines takes us in all directions, most of them resulting in a dead end. The market is flooded with promises of quick fixes and long lasting results, including ineffective drug store creams and moisturizers, as well as expensive and risky cosmetic surgery. Each of those solutions comes with its own often outrageous price tag and set of risks that can be detrimental to one’s health.
The most effective way to combat fine lines doesn’t come in a jar though, and it isn’t found on an operating table. It also won’t cost you a fortune or require you to continue to spend money in order to maintain an improved, more youthful appearance.
The answer to eliminating fine lines is in simple, targeted and highly effective facial exercises, and the cost is nothing compared to surgery. The one-time only fee is also less than the cost of just one jar of some of those
supposed miracle creams, and it is significantly less than the cost of maintaining your appearance through the use of makeup. Take a look at some of the negatives associated with the ways people try to reduce fine lines and you’ll be convinced that facial exercises are the way to go.
Creams and Moisturizers
With so many creams and moisturizers around, each touting itself as the ultimate fountain of youth, it can be impossible to find a product that works. Why Is that? Because most of them aren’t effective at all. Often, all we endup with is a cabinet full of useless products that have done nothing but lighten our pocketbooks. Additionally, since facial skin is
some of the most sensitive skin on our bodies, trying new creams and moisturizers can be a crap shoot, since they can lead to dangerous allergic reactions, acne and clogged pores.
Most creams just don’t work.
So, aside from sunscreen, which should be worn every time you go outside, avoid unnatural face creams and moisturizers in your battle against fine lines. You never know how your skin will react and there’s no point in continuing to waste money on ineffective products.
Yes, makeup does approve appearance… temporarily. As soon as the makeup comes off though, you’re back to square one. Clogged pores, allergic reactions and acne are all potential side effects, and for what? It’s like spinning your wheels in place because the problem isn’t solved. It’s merely covered up.
Wouldn’t it be much better to wear less makeup, or no makeup at all, knowing that you look good with or without it? Facial exercises can help you achieve that reality.
Botox has become so commonplace that talk about the potential risk of side effects has been pushed to the wayside. But, one only has to do a quick online search to see the hundreds of horror stories that have been written by people who have paid for and received Botox injections.
Aside from lightening your pocketbook by an average of a little over $300 each visit, Botox patients suffer from other miserable side effects, such as permanent droopy eyelids, nerve damage, vision problems, eye discharge, and severe muscle weakness in areas that weren’t even injected!
Of course, a lot of people become so disheartened with and frustrated by the lack of results they have gotten from the various drug store remedies like creams and makeup that they resort to the high cost and risky option of cosmetic surgery. While this may seem like a viable option, consider the overall costs to your bank account and health.
Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, facial cosmetic surgery can cost anywhere between $5000 and $7000. Surgery has other costs associated with it, too, not the least of which is the painful and sometimes lengthy downtime associated with recovery. Keep in mind that, regardless of motivation, surgery is the act of intentionally inflicting trauma onto your body. The downtime can range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Who has time for that?
Additionally, recovery time increases with each side effect. If you get an infection, for example, you will be right back at your doctor’s office, where you will be prescribed an antibiotic, and until your infection is healed, the recovery process will be stalled.
If that’s not enough, you won’t be able to experience the full results you get from the cosmetic surgery for weeks, and sometimes months. Some surgeries take time for your face to ‘settle in’, and by that time, it’s too late. You’ve already paid for it and you’ve already suffered through the painful recovery and unexpected side effects. If the results of the cosmetic surgery are bad enough you will be stuck with the very unpleasant option of going under the knife again, after which you will have to contend with the recovery and side effects all over. Or, you could simply deal with the unfortunate results of the first surgery.
Drinking plenty of water, protecting your skin from direct contact with the sun, and eating right are all obvious ways that you can naturally help slow the skin’s aging process. But, at a certain point your skin will require more help than what those simple fixes can offer.
By far, the best natural way to get rid of fine lines is to institute an ongoing facial exercise routine that targets the trouble spots, and does it naturally, with no side effects.
This is where you leave it to the experts, because not just any facial exercises will do. By following a simple, yet highly effective facial exercise regimen (which can be done at your convenience without leaving your home), you will begin to see results quickly. By continuing the regimen, you will look sexier and younger than you have in years, and people will take notice.
