Plus, the treatment options for signs of aging. By:Hannah Baxter If you’re of a certain age, you might have given some thought to the creeping signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. There’s a reason why medical professionals performed 7.7 million Botulinum Toxin Type A (like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) procedures in 2019. Minimizing the appearance of fine lines in various areas of the face is a big business, and it’s only getting bigger (there’s been an 878 percent increase in these types of injectables from 2000 to 2019), which is why we weren’t surprised to learn that dermatologists are seeing more and more patients that are concerned about… read more

Luckily for us, there are so many tools and products at our disposal these days that claim to mimic those in-office treatments. At-home tools have been really gaining traction these days.

Also known as “bee glue,” the natural ingredient plumps and soothes skin while keeping oil away. By Michella Oré February 11, 2021 Propolis—or “bee propolis,” as it’s sometimes called—might not have the same instant name recognition as hyaluronic acid or niacinamide.
