Lauryn is super skincare obsessed and loves a detail so when she was allowed into Miss Patricia’s dressing room she got all of the insider info.

Botox vs. Dysport

Last year when I went home for the holidays I had so many friends and family members say “Wow you look GREAT!” Want to know my secret? I got Botox a week before going home for Christmas so it was in full effect! My forehead looked smooth, I looked more relaxed  and youthful, and it looked really natural and not frozen.

I also had less issues with my makeup getting caked in my wrinkles (the worst). I loved the effects SO much, but then it lasted about 2 months for me and it by 3 months it was completely gone! I was so sad because that stuff is expensive.

💉BOTOX TALK!💉 ▶️🎥 to see it in action! A week before Christmas got Botox for the first time in my forehead, between my brows and a little near the outer corners of my eyes (30 units total) at @alchemy43 and OMG I loved it so much! I got it a week before Christmas and when I was in Florida for the holidays people kept saying how good I looked and I swear Botox is why because I just looked so much more fresh! 🤕Does it hurt? No it’s the tiniest little prick and it was all over in maybe 3 minutes? I did have a headache afterwards last time, but I was also dehydrated, starving and got stuck in traffic and I will definitely avoid all of that next time. Like I say in the video if you’ve ever had a facial with extractions (which I had 3 days post and is why my face is a little blotchy) they are like 100x more painful than the needle. 💸How much does it cost? I paid $9/unit for mine so it was $270 total. They asked me if I wanted my forehead to have movement still or be totally frozen and I said idk? But if you asked me today I’d say I’d be happy if my forehead never ever moved again. ⏳How long does it last? It’s different for everyone it depends on how your body absorbs it. For me my forehead was almost back to normal movement in 2 months and totally 100% back by 3. I was like 😭😭😭 because I loved it so much! It kind of made sense though because I’m never super sensitive to medications like some people are. It can last 6 months or more on other people so you never know! 👱‍♀️👩👵When should you get it done? I got it for the first time when I was 30, but definitely could have gotten it sooner. I have so much sun damage from tanning that really messed me up which is why I have such deep lines on my forehead. There is not lotion, potion, or cream that can make deep wrinkles go away (I asked my dermatologist) so if you are wrinkly like myself this is your most effective treatment by far. 🎊🎉Big event coming up and thinking about Botox? Like I say in my video you will see optimal results in 3-7 days (mine were seen at 7 days for sure) so get it at least a week before the event, but I’d probably do 2 weeks before just in case any adjustments need to be made.

Recently I’ve been hearing more about Dysport and some people have been saying it lasts longer than Botox. I was curious if that was true and John Stuart was nice enough to write up a guest post all about Botox vs. Dysport.

Fighting Back Against Sun Damage with Anti-Aging Techniques

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post that also contains affiliate links. Read more about what that means and how it works on my Disclosure page.

You might think that skin damage is a natural part of aging, but you’re only partially right. A very small percentage of skin problems is caused by genetics or the general passage of time. What does cause the damage is exposure to damaging elements, like the sun. Obviously, older people have had more sun exposure, which is why you might see more wrinkles, discolored spots, and other skin problems as you age. But the good news is there are lots of anti-aging techniques you can use to fight back against that damage.

Preventing Sun Damage

Of course, the best course of action is to prevent as much sun damage as you can in the first place so that you don’t have to treat the damage later. Even if you think it’s too late and your skin is already damaged, you should still protect it in the future, especially since less sun exposure means less risk of skin cancer.

There are several steps you can take to protect your skin. Wearing sunscreen whenever you go out is the biggest, even if it seems to be cloudy out. Wearing hats and sunglasses can also help a lot. I just bought this rash guard for SPF protection to bring on an upcoming trip where I’ll be outside and in the water a lot:

If it’s hard to remember to put on sunscreen by itself, get yourself a daily moisturizer that contains sunscreen instead. Then you only have to remember to apply one product instead of two. It’s even better if the product you choose contains retinoids, vitamins, and minerals. Those can all help to both repair and prevent skin damage. Here’s a few good ones I recommend:

Reversing Skin Damage with Laser and Light Procedures

If some damage is already done, one great way to reverse it is with laser procedures. Those aesthetic skincare machines can treat many different skin issues caused by sun, chemicals, and other environmental factors. Wrinkles are the most common, but age spots and other blemishes can also be lightened or removed entirely with lasers. So can old scars from things like acne outbreaks. Continue reading
