Natural and Safe Alternatives to Botox

Botox brings down the appearance of age lines and wrinkles on our face. While you can tighten your facial muscles with a Botox injection and smoothen your skin, you may also have to deal with the side effects of it. Some of them include nausea, headache, and other pains.

Thankfully, there are natural alternatives to Botox that help treat age lines and wrinkles on your face. Some of the popularly used alternatives are facial acupuncture, natural topical treatments, and the usage of cinnamon powder and peppermint oil instead of restylane. Now let’s look at the natural alternatives to Botox.

Bananas. Mash a medium-sized ripe banana with a little honey and apply the gooey paste on the face and neck. Wait for half an hour and wash off. This will rejuvenate your skin and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C mask. Rich in vitamin C, orange can be used to get a younger looking skin. Add the juice of aloe vera to that of an orange and apply the concoction on the face. Wait for half an hour and wash off. Both orange and aloe vera help in tightening the skin.

Yogurt and egg white. Mix a tablespoon of white yogurt with an egg white and whisk them to form a fluffy consistency. Apply this paste and wait for ten minutes. This face pack helps firm your skin.

Oatmeal. A true blue anti-ageing mask, oatmeal exfoliates your skin and makes it youthful. Add honey to oatmeal and apply the paste on your face for 20 minutes. 

Firming oil. Apart from the above, you can use firming oils that are available in the market too. You can also make your own firming oil at home by mixing coconut oil and lavender oil. Massage upwards with this oil to boost muscle tightness.
