We’ve Combed Through The Latest Skincare Trends, So You Don’t Have To

Posted by team anato on

And wow, combing through the latest skin care trends is no small feat!

Natural alternatives to botox exist!

We hand selected ingredients and trends that can serve as natural alternatives to botox. There are so many holistic ways to encourage healthy and youthful skin - many of which can easily be worked into your life. We will first give some background on aging skin, then explain how these natural alternatives work, and then how to incorporate them into your life. And guess what - finding these sources in their whole plant form almost always outweighs their isolated, extracted form.

How and why does our skin age?

Anti-Aging by Anato Regenerative Skincare

Our skin ages both from intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic factors include things like our genes, diet, and stress.  Extrinsic factors include things like exposure to the sun, pollutants, and other environmental factors. 

As we get older, our bodies see a drop in estrogen that causes thinner skin, the appearance of wrinkles, and drier skin (1). Collagen and elastin production decrease as well, which also contributes to the thinning of skin, slower wound healing, easier bruising, and sagging skin (2)

Aging is normal, natural, and inevitable. “Anti-aging” is a term that gives the wrong impression - we should not and cannot be against the aging process. Our bodies, just like the trees, age with strength, resilience, and wisdom. There is no need to fight this process. We can, however, support our bodies by taking preventative action and including holistic health practices that nurture our bodies from the inside and the outside. 

By seeking natural alternatives to botox and other intrusive procedures, we will not only reduce signs of aging skin, we will holistically support the aging process through regenerative wellness. Perennial beauty encompasses glowing skin, and aging with grace and purpose.
