4 anti-aging products giving Botox a run for its money

Dec 20 2017, 1:51 am

Over the last decade, Botox has become the go-to treatment for removing fine lines and wrinkles, and it’s easy to see why: A Botox injection is quick, effective and relatively painless. But now, a new kind of skincare product has exploded onto the market, giving Botox a serious run for its money.

Peptide creams provide people with age-defying results by boosting collagen production on a cellular level. Peptides are a chain of amino acids that work to not only diminish the lines you already have on your face, but to delay the overall aging process as well.

Based on both user and industry experts’ reviews, these four anti-aging products have been found to have the most positive and significant results, taking years off your face without ever having to get an injection.

Jeunesse Instantly Ageless

First up is Jeunesse’s much-talked about Instantly Ageless cream. It contains the peptide argireline and if you’ve seen any of the tutorial videos online, you’ll believe me when I say this cream is a miracle worker. Within minutes after dabbing this cream onto your under eye circles, you’ll see your circles disappear right before your eyes.

Only a small amount is necessary to see the cream work its magic. Instantly Ageless not only removes dark circles, it helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores and provide an overall more refreshed appearance. Alas, results aren’t permanent- the effects last only as long as the cream stays on the skin.


Sublime Beauty Face Whisperer Day Cream

The Face Whisperer Day Cream is known for its lightweight yet powerful results. Its main star ingredient is the aforementioned peptide argireline (known as the natural Botox), which boosts collagen growth and production in order to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It also features natural ingredients like carrot extract, sweet almond, aloe and ginseng to heal, repair and moisturize the skin. With regular use of this gentle cream, users have experienced softer and plumper skin with a noticeable reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.


Advanced Dermatology Anti Aging System

This multi-purpose line has gotten great reviews all around, thanks to its budget conscious pricing and extremely high concentration of peptides. Its 30 other active anti aging ingredients don’t hurt either. Together with powerful antioxidants, stem cells and face lifting growth factors, Advanced Dermatology significantly helps reduce the effects of damaged and aging skin. It naturally rebuilds collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, fuller skin over time.


La Prairie Anti Aging Rapid Response Booster

If you want results and aren’t afraid to shell out some cash, La Prairie is your best bet. Made in Switzerland, this line is the epitome of luxury skincare. Luckily for them, La Prairie’s products provide results that are able to back up its hefty price tag. The brand has an assortment of skincare lines, with the Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster being a great example of a truly advanced wrinkle interceptor. Thanks to its accelerated delivery system, peptides are delivered with speed and precision to problem areas, providing long term results rather than a short term fix. This is a great line for those seeking quality skincare for the long haul!

Keep in mind that skincare products work differently on every person. The only way to truly know a product’s effectiveness on your skin is to try it out yourself, so a bit of trial and error is required when looking for your ideal skincare line.
