8 Products That Work Better Than Botox
Not convinced that a needle is your anti-aging answer? With these skin-care products, you can skip the injections and still get fabulous results
But settling into your dermatologist's chair for injections isn't as easy-breezy as it sounds. Shots can be painful and cause bruising. And at $450 (or more, depending on how many areas you have injected), it's certainly not cheap either.
However, with a little patience and dedication to a nightly skin-care regimen, you can achieve smooth, wrinkle-free skin without injections. And you can really maximize those results by eating right, exercising and keeping your stress under control, according to Howard Murad, MD, founder and CEO of Murad. "Quite honestly, I have seen better total body results in my patients following [a healthy lifestyle] program than with cosmetic fillers and injectables," he says.
When it comes to fighting fine lines, these eight skin-care miracle workers all give Botox a run for its money, and they have a ton of additional skin benefits like lightening dark spots and stimulating cell renewal as well.
