Three cheers for botox! Getting preventative botox with Allen Gabriel MD is my new favorite beauty hack. I have received two preventative botox treatments with Allen Gabriel MD team member Maci. I also received an incredibly hydrating and skin-clearing HyrdaFacial from Audrey earlier this year! In this post I’m talking about my experience getting botox and I will be serving some honest truth tea on the effects of botox.
My 28th birthday is coming up soon so I need to start paying close attention to my skin as my body and hormones change. As we get older we lose elasticity and collagen in our skin. That means as we age, and as our faces make repetitive motions, wrinkles start to appear. This is why preventative botox is important. Botox is used to retrain facial muscles to relax and not overwork themselves. It also improves facial posture, which can cause wrinkles. People develop wrinkles because, over time, skin weakens and can’t effectively bounce back from the folding caused by laughing, smiling, frowning, and all the other motions your face makes on a regular basis.
This Chicwish watercolor dress looks so pretty against these recently rained on peonies. Something I heard as a child that has always stuck with me is “rain is a festival of water.” It means that you shouldn’t look at rain as a bad thing, but instead as a celebration.
