When you see a droop in your visage, your first thought may be a surgical solution. Although the wave of the plastic surgeon’s magic wand (magic scalpel?) makes the signs of aging disappear, you should also consider the drawbacks of invasive options and the natural alternatives to plastic surgery procedures.
Here are some of the top areas targeted by cosmetic surgery and our natural options for growing older, gracefully:
With age, skin sags around and over the eyelids and excess fat develops below them. This puffy, droopy look causes an over-all appearance of being older and less alert. Eyelid surgery, can cost almost $3000 as well as cause temporary bruising and swelling around the sensitive eye area (American Society of Plastic Surgeons). Our natural
alternative is the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream, which depuffs the eye area and tightens its appearance for an instant lift. The cooling stainless steel rollerball applicator massages active ingredients into the skin and transforms tired-looking eyes - no surgery needed.
Aging, inelastic skin tends to relax around the lower face and neck area. Sagging skin combined with excess fatty deposits results in a thick, wrinkled neck or even a double chin. Ringing in at over $4000, a surgical neck lift procedure may solve the problem but involves significant investment. Also, although healing takes a couple of weeks, full recovery could stretch out for months. As a non-invasive option, the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream offers visible benefits with less disadvantages. Edelweiss smooths and tightens the neck to give a lifted appearance. A blend of hibiscus and botanical hyaluronic acid also keeps skin firm and rich in moisture.
Formulated with botanical peptides to smooth out even the deepest lines, the Line Filler works like Mother Nature’s eraser.
LINES AND FOLDS
Besides the eye and the neck area, the face can suffer an overall aging look because of lost volume. As our cheekbones diminish and the skin and muscles begin to slide, deep lines develop, especially nasolabial folds, or laugh lines. Popular in the last five years, cheek implants lift the face and smooth out folds created by sagging skin. Cheek augmentation, however, runs up to $15,000 and involves insertion of implants which are sometimes screwed into the bone (Harper's Bazaar). Our Hibiscus Instant Line Filler, on the other hand, is a more accessible, natural option. Formulated with botanical peptides to smooth out even the deepest lines, the Line Filler works like Mother Nature’s eraser. No knife, no worries - it’s still possible to achieve youthful-looking results that reduce the signs of aging.
