The majority of German women reject botox for smoothing wrinkles

Cosmetic surgery or treatment with the botox nerve poison are out of the question for a majority of German women to treat so-called problem areas. Most, however, rely on a healthy diet, exercise and cosmetic applications.

Only a little more than one percent of German women have used the botox nerve poison to smooth wrinkles, according to a representative survey by GfK Marktforschung on behalf of the “Apotheken Umschau”. Botox (botulinum toxin) as such is always a topic in the press because the drug is even said to have positive effects in the treatment of migraines by means of studies. However, experts questioned the data available in the study and said that in every tenth patient headache symptoms would be aggravated. What is widespread in the USA does not have to find its way into Germany, as the latest survey results show.

Celebrities, whose laughs look frozen and whose facial features look as if they were clamped on: These are pictures of stars who apparently prevent many people from using artificial or surgical measures to help allegedly improve the beauty of their skin. In the pharmacy survey, 70.1 percent of the women surveyed said that botox therapy for wrinkle treatment is not an option for them. Only about 2.1 percent of those surveyed stated that they had already undergone cosmetic surgery to tighten the skin. Only about 1.1 percent of women said they had already received botox injections for wrinkle therapy.

Most women, on the other hand, prefer healthy lifestyle, exercise and skin creams. One in two said they were eating a balanced and healthy diet to reduce facial wrinkles. Every third survey participant lives quasi-alcohol-free and 20 percent avoid excessive sun exposure of the skin.

The proportion of women who use cosmetic utensils was actually high. 41.7 percent said they would use special wrinkle treatments such as peels, masks or concentrates at least once a quarter to take care of the skin and reduce wrinkles. Over 33 percent said they use a sunscreen face cream and 25 percent said they use an anti-wrinkle cream every day. Almost as many (22.5 percent) said they would experiment with different anti-aging applications. The vast majority (88 percent) said they are very satisfied or satisfied with their skin.

Skin care with the help of naturopathy
The epidermis is responsible for the appearance of the outer skin. This is exposed to permanent environmental influences such as sun rays, environmental toxins or air from heating and air conditioning systems. Of course, the advancing age influences the aging process of the skin. In addition, physical and psychological stress as well as nutrition and ways of life are decisive. In naturopathy, herbal creams are made from high-fat avocado, jojoba and almond for skin care. Massages such as the traditional Thai massage also stimulate blood circulation and facilitate lymph flow. It is also important to maintain the acid-base balance. If the body becomes too acidic, the skin can also be damaged. (sb)
