The bottom line is that it may be effective in taking a proactive approach in aging, but it does raise a moral dilemma on how young is to young, and the health concerns that come with today's youth pumping themselves full of toxins for a prolonged period of time. Botox isn't permanent; most clients need to come in every three months to keep away lines. If you start this habit at age 24, and keep on at it that's a lot of maintenance and a lot of toxins to be injecting in your body over time. "Botox in your 20s, breasts implants in your 30s, eye tuck in your 40s--what's left to do by age 80, you know? Botox raises no different questions than any other type of plastic surgery in that regard," says Neumer. But let's face it, no one wants to age. So what alternatives are there for preventing aging without taking such an aggressive approach? For starters, use products that are anti-oxidants such as Vitamin A, C and E. They help block pollutions from affecting the skin. Pollutants are responsible for dulling skin's appearance. Start working out not only for your body, but your skin. Aerobic activity leads to the body's release of sebum, which naturally moisturises this skin. Use a moisturizer and cosmetics that contain an SPF of 15 or higher and eat for healthy skin. Eat power-packed leafy greens and lots of fruits because all experts agree that great skin cannot be without healthy skin.
