I love a woman that can age gracefully, embrace her fine lines and wrinkles, and doesn’t hide her sunspots…But, I am not that woman. I 100% admire those women and their confidence and wish I could be more like them!
We put our best foot forward and can be our best selves when we feel great about ourselves. For me, having youthful skin makes me feel great about myself.
There are habits young adults adopt in order to remain looking younger. A lot of those methods involve extremely toxic chemicals which I am not about. There are ways to keep your skin looking young without the toxic measures.
In this post, I’ll cover…
-The harmful effects of Botox.
-The 3 best natural anti-aging products that are natural alternatives to Botox.
-How To reduce aging naturally.
The Harmful Effects Of Botox:
Did you know Botox has a BLACK BOX WARNING? The black box warning is the most serious warning from the FDA. Botox is from the Botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxic protein which basically causes muscles to be weakened or paralyzed. This toxin has the potential to enter the bloodstream and travel to different parts of the body.
Botox has a HUGE list of side effects including nerve pain, heart palpitations, problems breathing, migraines, headaches, hormonal issues, stroke, anxiety, depression, and literally hundreds more. Unfortunately, Botox is made out to be no big deal and women are unaware there are any potential harmful effects.

The 3 Best Natural Alternatives To Botox:
You don’t need to inject your face with a deadly neurotoxin to achieve wrinkle free skin! There are 3 products I SWEAR by which help prevent and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. These products are completely toxin free and they WORK!
Once you hit about 30 years old, your body starts to stop producing collagen. Collagen gives your skin, joints, and bones structure. Collagen also supports our gut and immune system. Once your body stops producing its own collagen, it can be beneficial to supplement with collagen.
When it comes to our skin aging, supplementing with collagen can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and crows feet around the eyes.
I like the unflavored Ancient Nutrition Collagen Peptides. There are only 2 ingredients, Fermented Eggshell Membrane Collagen and Bovine Collagen, so you’re getting straight up collagcom/en! None of the fillers and flavors in other brands of collagen. I put a scoop in my hot tea daily!
Goldenlight contains a 15% Multi-Peptide complex to plump fine lines and tighten the skin to reduce the appearance of aging. I use this every night after Crunchi Clarilight and before Crunchi Nightlight!
Get $10 OFF your first Crunchi purchase when you see my name in the upper right hand corner! (Automatically applied at checkout.)
I love Frownies which are old Hollywood’s beauty secret. Frownies work by retraining your facial muscles which in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles since the constant motion of facial expressions create creases in the skin. These are definitely worth a try! I’ve been using them since 2021 and my fine lines look better at 30 than they did when I was 23!
*BONUS: All of these products are exponentially cheaper than Botox!
How To Reduce Aging Naturally:
There are lots of things we can do to help reduce the signs of aging. Eating a healthy, nutrient rich diet full of antioxidants and eliminating junk foods can help reduce the signs of aging naturally.
Also, getting adequate sun exposure without burning can help too! I do not believe in sunscreen all the time and that we should never be exposed to the sun. The sun is so beneficial to our health and LIFE! We need the sun! Just wear toxin free sunscreen for prolonged sun exposure.
Eliminating unnecessary stressors from your life. Stress wreaks havoc on the body. The more relaxed and stress free you are, the better! Obviously, it’s not possible to never have stress, but a lot of people add stress to their life. Take care of yourself first so you’re physically and mentally able to help others too.
