I Confess: I've Had Botox... And I Love It!

5 years ago
What is the difference between being in your 30's and and your 20's?  One big thing my dear: crow’s feet!  
How can lines so small annoy me so much? I’ve used all the eye creams imaginable and put on enough cucumbers to make a salad that could feed a small village.  But nothing touches these suckers.  Well, nothing except for my faithful friend, Botox.  Oh, how I love you.

With just a few pinches in the skin, which you can barely feel, I know those little lines will be gone in a week.  No more squinty eyes, and it does more for my eyebrow arch then even the best brow expert could give me.  (I admit it, I went to one once.)

Now, I am not talking joker eyebrows.  I am talking a natural lift that even my friends have commented on.  The lift literally gives me more space on my eyelid to put on eyeshadow.  I am one of those people who is cursed with small eyelids.  You could barely see eyeshadow when I wore it.  But not anymore. 

(Oh, and for all you guys out there, FYI, you can reduce your crow’s feet without arching your eyebrow.  It all depends on how the Botox is given.)

Up until now, I have only confessed this secret to my closest friends, but I guess I just let the cat out of the bag...

So ladies (and gentlemen too), those crow’s feet are caused by muscle movement around your eyes. The only way to really prevent them or get rid of what you already have is to turn to the dark side.  Botox.
