Ok ladies, we all hate that word “aging”. But there’s something we can do about it and it’s never too late to start!
After years of spending hours in the sun and tanning beds, I have not done my skin any favors. I recently started a skin care regimen by Rodan and Fields. Two dermatologists founded the skin care line in 2002 and it has taken off as one of the biggest direct selling companies of its kind. I purchased the Redefine package that is for appearance of lines, pores and loss of firmness. I saw multiple friends on social media posting before and after pictures of people with amazing results. So I jump onboard and bought into the product. I only have been using the product for a month, but I love how my skins looks and feels. My pores are reduced and my spots are becoming less noticeable. I also purchased the exfoliating roller to amp up my results. You roll it over your face and it opens up your pores so the product soaks in and works even better. I will post pictures of before and after in the next month and let’s see if there is a difference. And there is a money back guarantee!
A few weeks ago I had my annual skin check at Lifetime Dermatology and I mentioned to the doctor how much I hate the lines on my forehead — evil frown line and the scar between my eyes. She suggested Botox and that I would love it. Well I never wanted to be one of those people who looked fake or had tons of plastic surgery. Then I met this beautiful 35-year-old medical assistant with beautiful skin. She told me she even uses Botox and started just a couple of years ago. In your thirties I asked?? I couldn’t believe it. But after learning more about Botox it is actually a preventative. So the longer you go without it, the more that frown line will get deeper.
So what is Botox? It’s a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines. It blocks the nerve impulses and reduces the muscle activity that causes those lines to form between the browns.
Yes, you can still make facial expressions and I saw results in about 3-4 days. Unfortunately, the results only last 3-4 months. It is a little expensive at $250-$400 a treatment, but my results are amazing and I believe it is well worth the cost! I can’t believe how well it hid my lumpy scar that I had between my eyes from an accident when I was little. I had dreaded it for years and I am so happy with the results and can still frown.
Make sure to wear your sunscreen and protect your skin. Attached is a video from Fox 2 News on how to prevent skin cancer from my doctor, Dr. Ann Hern.
