7 Ingredients That Work Better Than Botox!

By: Debdatta Mazumder

You often may get surprised as to how a 60-year-old movie star can look so young and flawless. The open mystery behind this miracle is Botox! Just an injection and your age can be stopped at the threshold.

Actually, botox is a kind of a toxin that is produced from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is injected to your body in order to remove wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, etc., and to give you a smoother and youthful skin for long.

Now, the obvious question that comes to your mind is whether the entire process has any side effects or not. Well, a chemical is injected inside your body, which has to have certain side effects, right?

Most commonly, people may face double vision, skin problems like allergy, rashes, etc., and even breathing problems too. Besides side effects, another problem with botox is that the process is quite expensive.

However, there are certain other natural methods by which you can look as much younger and obviously without many side effects.

Also, you don't need to pay huge for these tips. So, have a look at the ingredients mentioned below that could work better than botox:


1. Peppermint Oil And Cinnamon Powder:

If you want plump lips minus the botox method, you use cinnamon powder and peppermint oil together, and you will get the same result without any side effects. Just make a mixture of these two and apply it on your lips. Wash after a few minutes and apply petroleum jelly.


2. Sugar:

So far you were unaware about the magical impact of sugar to keep you looking youthful. Just wash your face with warm water and apply sugar directly on your skin and massage in a circular motion. If you have sensitive skin, don't rub harshly. It will work wonderful on your wrinkles.


3. Lemon Or Pineapple Juice:

The benefits of lemon juice for skin are numerous. Besides, there are several enzymes in pineapple juice that smoothen your skin. Soak a cotton ball into the juice and apply all over your face and neck. Wait for 10 minutes and wash with lukewarm water. You can get glowing skin within a few minutes.


4. Almond Oil:

Yes, botox can boost up your eyelashes. But, it can cause discolouration if the process is not performed too carefully. Why to take risk while you have almond oil, right? Dab a cotton swab into almond oil and run it on your eyelashes. Take a dry swab and remove the excess oil. You can get longer eyelashes over a gradual period.


5. Coffee Ground:

Want homemade anti-cellulite wraps? Coffee ground can help you there. Apply coffee ground well on the area you want to break down the cellulite from. Now, wrap the area with cellophane paper and leave it on for a while. If not possible, then blow dry the area for 10 minutes. Voila!


6. Egg Mask:

This is a magical mask to give you smooth and wrinkle-free skin. Take 1 egg white and whisk it well to make it frothy. Mix ½ a tsp of coconut oil and lemon juice. Clean your face and apply it. Wait till the mask dries. Wash with warm water. Don't forget to apply a moisturiser after that.


7. Facial Exercises:

With all these remedies, if you exercise regularly, your skin will remain firm and toned. There are several facial exercises you can try to keep your face toned and your skin uplifted. Turn your face upward and make pout. Do it whenever you like. This will remove the double chin and give your cheeks a good shape.
