Unexpected Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Botox

Unexpected Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Botox

So, you’ve done everything right: Chosen a skilled, reputable injector; avoided certain medications before your Botox treatment; and even skipped your favorite glass of wine and kick-butt workout to ensure you are in tip-top shape for injection day. 

But did know there’s even more you can do to contribute to the success and longevity of your Botox treatments? While everyone’s results differ, we love these three unexpected ways you can stay happily wrinkle-free for longer than ever:

Stop that Constant Stress: We often hear that minimizing daily stress is a top indicator of health and happiness — and that goes for your skin, as well. When we are under stress our bodies release cortisol and hormones that actually accelerate the aging process and super-charge unwanted signs of aging. Do your best to control your stress with meditation, yoga, exercise, dog cuddling or even good old-fashioned laughter. Whatever makes you feel great is the best medicine!

Try Some Much-Needed Zinc: Did you know that many of us suffer from zinc deficiencies and some studies have shown regularly taking a zinc supplement after your Botox treatments may prolong its anti-aging effects? It’s true — and you might give your skin a double whammy of good health by avoiding processed foods and sugar while introducing Zinc-rich foods into your diet like shellfish, nuts, dark chocolate, mushrooms, green veggies and beans. Y-U-M.

Love the Skin You’re In: The best way to make your Botox last longer? Take care of you skin! Create a personalized daily skincare regimen that includes plenty of moisturizing, and try products like Revision Skincare Revox 7, which helps relax fine muscles to make Botox last longer. Plus, don’t forget to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or even adding a little hydration powder to your morning water bottle. And last but certainly not least, don’t forget that SPF! Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays might actually reduce the duration of the benefits of your Botox treatments, which is why it’s vital to incorporate a high-quality sunscreen — like SkinBetter Science’s Sunbetter Sheer SPF Stick, paired with its Alto Defense antioxidant serum — into your morning skincare routine.
