When it comes to anti-ageing, one of the most popular methods to keep fine lines at bay is Botox.

The process of the anti-wrinkle treatment involves the injection of Botox – or a similar anti-wrinkle treatment – into the desired area to reduce wrinkles. The Botox temporarily prevents muscle movement in the desired area, which results in reduced wrinkles and smoother skin.

If you’re an avid fan of TikTok and find yourself of ‘BeautyTok’ a lot of the time, you may have stumbled across what many users are dubbing ‘Botox in a bottle’.

According to a popular creator, Sarah Palmyra, two products from cult beauty brand The Ordinary could potentially replace the need for Botox, a hack that had been doing the rounds on the social media app.

Sharing a video to her TikTok account, she shows her audience how she uses the Argireline solution 10 per cent (Dhs28) and Matrixyl 10 per cent (Dhs49) from The Ordinary.

The two serums are said to stimulate collagen generation, combatting several signs of ageing.

Having tried the combination for a month, Sarah discovered it most definitely does help reduce the signs of wrinkles and fine lines, it’s not quite strong enough to replace the results of Botox.

However, if it even helps slightly there’s no harm in trying the products.

TikTok has become a haven for skincare hacks and tricks, but users need to be aware that some hacks can be more harmful than expected. Emirates Woman spoke to some leading clinical experts in the UAE to have in-depth look at all the popular fads and which to avoid.
