“If I don’t like Botox, what skincare should I use?” This is one of the most frequently asked question to our team of professional beauticians.
“What are the side effects of Botox?”
Few years back, we would not know how to answer this question. Reason: Then,we only met few new BOTOX adopters and were not aware of its long term side effects. In this past year, we observed many BOTOX users who found themselves having difficulty in smiling or expressing themselves to say the least. More seriously, we found them in a downward spiral as their ‘non Botox’ or ‘non Filler’ facial muscle looses its ability to support itself whilst their ‘Botox muscles’ stiffen. Resuting in continuous aesthetic treatment and droopy eyelids. This observation drives us to research in detail on Botox or anti-aging skincare
Our conclusion: Do not start aesthetic treatment but consider a more natural way to maintaining your skincare routine. The 3 pillars tngbeauty of What is Natural Beauty: Daily Skincare with mindfulness massage, Weekly home-care mask and Monthly professional facial.
With the advancement in technology, Dr Babor and Filorga, 2 trusted brands with more than 50 years of experience in skincare, have created anti-wrinkle and lifting skincare for our anti-aging concerns. Minus the side effects.
Here are our top picks:
Dr Babor BTX-Lift Serum (Active Ingredient: Botox-like plant based peptide)
Well, you must be thinking we are a fickle minded bunch. On one hand, we don’t think it is healthy to have injectible Botox made from Botulin. And now, we are suggesting to try a Botox-like plant based serum.
This plant based serum is made of peptide which helps reduce appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, laughter line and lines around neck area. It works by neurotransmitters responsible for muscle contraction.
Dr Babor BTX Lift Serum also has Hyaluronic acid which provides long lasting moisturizing effect as Hyaluronic Acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water. This super emolient plumps up the skin cells and further smoothens out lines.
Filorga Re-Time Serum (Active Ingredient: Vitamin A)
We tried and we loved it. We used it and we loved it even more.
Vitamin A ,as we all know, is the rockstar of skincare but it is also notorious for causing sensitivity. The Filorga Re-Time Serum gives us all the benefits of Vitamin A aka Retinol. It helps to promote healthy skin regeneration, smoothen lines, reduce pigmentation, lifting. All resulting in youthful looking skin, explicitly visibly younger looking skin with a rosy glowy hue.
Filorga Skin Perfusion range of skincare is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and NCTF, a cocktail of 56 amino acids as special ingredients in its range of 6 Serums. One of the coverted serum is Filorga Skin Perfusion Re-Time. It is especially created with Vitamin A as one of the key ingredients besides Hyaluronic Acid and NCTF. You may wonder Is Hyaluronic Acid is an acid or Are Retinol, Retinoid Acid, Retin A the same?
We hope you will try these skincare which we have discovered as part of Skincare Singapore series of articles.
