The Latest No-Frills Facials To Try

I have a love-hate relationship with facials. I love how facials can instantly freshen my skin, and help me clean out the gunk I never knew existed in my pores.

Question is do you start early, or late? If you are in your 30s, here are 3 top reasons why you should considering having it done.    1.

While it is common sense to Botox around your 40s, when most wrinkles have already started to show for at least a few years, it is too early to Botox when wrinkles are just starting to show, or being barely visible? Doctors now recommend starting Botox earlier, ahead of full wrinkles forming, rather than having Botox done to soften the appearance of wrinkles late. That’s because when Botox is done in the latter, it does not take the wrinkles away, but merely prevents the muscles from contracting too much so that Continue Reading
