I REALLY wanted to add "Got Botox" to my list of New Things, but Mark put his foot down because he thinks I'm too young. Even when I employed my classic excuse, "It's for the blog!," he didn't give in.
I don't see what's wrong with it.
I'm totally NOT in favor of Botoxing one's entire face or getting crazy kinds of fillers in copious, noticeable amounts, however, I think a spot treatment is just fine. And boy do I have a spot that needs treating--the no-man's land right between my eyebrows.
I carry a lot of my tension in that part of my face, whether I'm happy, sad, concerned, indifferent or otherwise, and I'm starting to notice fine lines forming this shape ) || ( . I'm not a fan. I just think that if I could get that itty-bitty place deadened with the teeniest tiniest one half-sie of a unit of Botox that I could prevent this area from looking like this )))))||||||((((( when I'm 25.
Doing that little spot wouldn't even get rid of any expression in my face except for a comically overly-dramatic angry look. And I think I could still pull it off without the help of the between-the-eyebrows ruffle.
Enough of my self-justification. I was aware that Mark would be mad at me for a little injection so I went with the next best thing and I used anti-aging cream. I used the Pevonia Botanica Ligne Power Repair, which was what any cream should be...white and creamy. It smelled like old lady and I'm pretty sure I woke up with more fine lines than I went to bed with, now that I'm looking for "signs of improvement."
My ) || ( is still there: I consider it a failure.
But you know what I'm thinking? Mark doesn't read my blog...I bet I could get away with a touch of the B.
Do you think I'm crazy or justified???
