The 5 Moisturisers That Allow Me to Push Back My Botox Appointments

Hallie Gould

While one of our 33-year-old contributors has chosen to abstain from Botox (check out her favourite wrinkle-smoothing serums), this 28-year-old has already tried it. Twice. And though I have zero qualms about accepting a little help in the anti-ageing department—the results have been very favourable—it's expensive. And it involves needles, which are not exactly high on my list of favourite things. So it's in my best interest (and the interest of my dwindling back account and squeamish stomach) to supplement each Botox appointment with a round of anti-ageing moisturisers that actually work to reduce wrinkles, smooth fine lines, and boost collagen production.

I began to experiment each time I left the doctor's office. For the three to four months post-injection, I'd try a different moisturiser and record the results. That way, I'd be able to better gauge which product helped me push back my Botox appointments and which one, well, sent me running back to Dara Liotta, MD.

Below, find the five anti-ageing offerings that worked the best. That means they genuinely made a difference in the look and feel of my skin post-treatment.

FYI: I got Botox to help with my teeth grinding. And, yes, it works.
