The Beauty Closet's Top 5 Reasons Why You Can Skip the Needles When it Comes to Anti-aging Treatments:

by Christina


SKIP THE NEEDLES?!

As I've gotten older, I admit that I have begun to consider other options when it came to the impending battle that we all face at some point: the battle of aging :/ It happens and it's a fact of life, but if there any steps, products, tools, or treatments out there that I can take- I've probably given them a try {like most women}...and they didn't always work either!

Although I never seriously considered it myself, I've had some friends that were thinking about utilizing methods involving needles- like BOTOX. However, I've always been a bit hesitant to try this type of approach as I discovered through my own research that there are quite a few negatives to the procedure. That's not to say that I don't keep an open mind and I have no issues with those that chose to, but I've come to the decision that this type of thing isn't for me.

There are a few pointers that I have learned over the years, that I believe truly can prevent you from ever having to go this route. It might be part of the reason why I often get mistaken for 10 or even 15 years younger than I actually am! ;) 


THE BEAUTY CLOSET'S TOP 5 REASONS WHY YOU DON'T NEED THE NEEDLE TO ACHIEVE  YOUNGER SKIN:

  1. Beauty really does start from within- I'm a HUGE believer in this because, well- it works! Drink the recommended daily intake of water- but DON'T overdo it! Stick with fresh veggies, fruits, & lean meats- small snacks of healthy nuts or pita chips to stave hunger. 
  2. Take a daily supplement rich in Vitamin's C,D,& E for healthy and glowing skin :) With our busy lifestyles and processed foods that we consume daily, it's important to add a supplement rich in minerals & vitamins to keep your skin balanced.
  3. Avoid exposure to the sun when possible- although you do want to get the recommended 10 minutes of sun per day in order to get good levels of natural vitamin D! You can also take a daily supplement for help prevent the signs of aging you get from UV exposure- try: Heliocare; this antioxidant formula protects against the sun-related effects of aging with the power of the Fern!
  4. Stressful lifestyle? Not only does stress put strain on all factors of your life, but it can literally cause an increase in cellular aging that could be linked to things like type 2 diabetes, age-related disorders, and even cancer. You skin will show this aging too as a result :/ Prevent this by finding an outlet that lowers your stress levels- even if it's a 15 minute session of yoga for example, it will significantly lower your overall stress :)
  5. Ramp up your skincare and beauty routine- with the RIGHT products! This can make ALL the difference in the world and it's a big beauty ideal that I try to stay true to. Utilizing the right skincare and cosmetic products will really give you that extra edge- especially when it comes to beating the signs of aging! Make sure to check out The Beauty Closet's recommended product below, from dr.brandt- it's the perfect solution:

I absolutely LOVE dr.brandt skincare products so when I heard about Needles No More, I was thrilled and couldn't wait to give it a try. This is a different approach to reversing AND preventing the signs of aging and that stood out for me, right from the start :) If there is a way to avoid more drastic measures AND it really works- I'm all about it! That's what makes this product a big FAV for me. The 3-D Mask comes uniquely-boxed with a 3D design on the front of the box; there's an included mini-application brush that has an included brush cover to help keep the bristles clean and stiff.

As for the product itself, the mask is contained in an easy-to-access twist-open jar that includes a piece that lays on top, preventing the product from getting outside of the jar and making a mess! I found that applying the 3-D Mask was super easy with the provided tool and by following the provided directions on the best way to apply the product. As the instructions advise, a good approach is to take the brush and get a small amount of product on it and then apply the mask on each side of the face.

Using the inverted triangle method as suggested, will ensure that you are going to get the best results. I also patted some additional product in this area and into other wrinkles & fine lines, as the instructions state to do as well. You can feel the product begin to work almost immediately after applying, as it will begin to tingle a bit- I didn't find this to be unpleasant at all and did like that I could actually feel this product as it did it's job. The texture and consistency of the cream is perfect- it's not too heavy, but it has just the right creaminess to help the product easily and properly absorb into the skin. 

I have been using the product for a couple of weeks thus far, but I really started to see a difference after just the first usage. I chose to put on the mask right before bed and when I awoke, I could see how refreshed and healthy my skin looked! It also leaves your skin feeling super soft and after a few days, I started to see a reduction in the fine lines and wrinkles where I had been applying the 3-D Mask too. As for the overall lifting effect, I've seen about a 15% improvement so far on this as well! I've been very pleased with the results and I've going to continue to use the product daily :)

Best results can be seen with most beauty and skincare products on average, around 12-16 weeks- with daily use. If you've been seeking an anti-aging product that actually does what it claims it will do AND lets you avoid using more drastic measures like needles :0 , then this is THE product you need to try! No worries either if you do have super sensitive skin- I myself tend to often have very sensitive skin and I have to be quite careful with new products of a similar nature, yet I have no issues with daily usage of dr.brandt's 3D Filler Mask. I can without a doubt, attest to this product being awesome!
