Botox in creams and serums?
According to statistics, about 25,000 women in Germany have their faces rejuvenated with Botox every year. But it is safe to assume that the number of unreported cases is much higher. Many women do not want to admit it? Why actually?
Botox is perfectly okay, because the fairy tale about 2 to 3 liters of water a day as an anti-aging agent is nothing but a fairy tale. No matter how often celebrities affirm this. But no one has to beg a beauty doc for Botox when they think about how and what they can get rid of their wrinkles and fine lines. There are now creams and serums and lotions that are supposed to work almost as well as Botox.
Of course, the “basic equipment” of almost all these products includes hyaluron, because there is no active ingredient that can bind so much water (up to 6 liters per gram), making the skin elastic and giving it new tone. Sun protection is also one of the usual ingredients, as well as protection against free radicals.
