I will openly admit that the term "growing old gracefully" is one that does not settle peacefully in my mind....something about that "growing old" part.
Naturally this means I am a sucker for any product that claims to lift, tone, brighten, enhance, shimmer....I immediately need you in my daily repertoire. Sephora loves me.
But what about products that freeze....?
I've never been one to linger on the Botox page of a magazine or be intrigued by it. However, a few weeks back at the pool, I was talking with some friends just a couple years older than me who had fallen claim to the Botox frenzy, showing me all the places they'd had injected and saying things such as "oh girl, it's all about prevention."
Prevention?! I had never paired Botox with prevention. I mean, I've got prevention covered with my Vitamin C night gel and my Daily-Shimmer-Anti-Aging-Moisturizer and my bi-weekly Black Mask. Or do I? I had always thought of Botox as more of a "repair" method than prevention. But there me and my forehead "concentration lines" sat at the pool...suddenly feelings years behind to the game of
wrinkle concentration line prevention.
And though I'm still on the fence (and by on the fence, I clearly mean the side of the fence that is staring in half wonder/half fright at the Botox people on the other side of the fence)
Not to mention, I have a pain tolerance of about 2 (who wants to have my babies for me?!)
It made me wonder, little blog world....What are your thoughts on Botox?
Would you do it?
Do you see it as preventative?
Do you hit up every free Botox party you get invited too or lump Botox in with something only Real Housewives do?
so the real question is.....to bo, or not to bo?
I want to know!
