As we age, our skin is not quite as firm and tight as it was in our younger days. While many people don’t mind aging gracefully, many others begin considering plastic surgery, Botox injections or a face lift in order to maintain youthful skin. However, undergoing surgery can have some unwanted results. Before you decide to have an invasive procedure done, you should research all your options for healthy skin, including natural anti aging products for firm skin. Here are three reasons to avoid going under the knife:

1- Botched jobs can make you look older. There’s no way to determine for sure what you’ll look like when your facelift or other cosmetic procedure is complete. Unfortunately, when procedures go wrong, the results are very obvious. Skin that is pulled back too tightly or in the wrong places can make you not only look older, but make it glaringly obvious that you’ve had work done. If you want to look younger, you want any procedures to be undetectable to others. The only guaranteed way to ensure this is to avoid plastic surgery altogether.

2- Youthful skin is expressive. Botox might seem like a simple fix for fine lines and wrinkles, but think about this: when you inject the toxin into your face, it causes the injected muscle to relax and prevents it from being able to tighten, essentially freezing the muscle at the injection site. While having relaxed, frozen muscles prevents your ability to frown, furrow your brows and other movements that cause fine lines, not being able to express yourself with your facial expressions is a sure sign of cosmetic work.

3- Natural products can give you the same lifted look. Using proper anti wrinkle products and natural anti aging creams can give you that “facelift without surgery” look that guarantees younger looking skin with no healing time and no anesthetic risks. Look for products with moisturizing properties, which hydrate the skin and cause it to appear plumper. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine fines and eliminate wrinkles. The reason to choose a natural or organic anti-wrinkle cream is that natural products contain only ingredients found in nature, and don’t contain chemical additives and preservatives – such as petroleum, sulfates or alcohols – that can be drying and damaging over time. Instead, natural preservatives can be used instead so formulas stay good for longer periods of time, while allowing the moisturizing properties to shine. (By Samir Patil)
