I have yet another post-40 birthday arriving tomorrow (why do they come round so quick now?!) Therefore, I often find myself looking for, non-surgical, ways of trying to preserve my pre-40 face!
So I wonder if you’re as interested as I am to read about Biotulin, an organic gel said to be used by Kate Middleton and Madonna. Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge even passed on this youthful beauty secret to Michelle Obama.
How does Biotulin work?
Biotulin works on several levels at once.
First, the Spilanthol, a local anaesthetic extracted from Acmella oleracea, reduces muscle contractions and relaxes your features. This reduces fine lines, particularly around the eyes and between the eyebrows. Your skin becomes noticeably smoother.
A second extract comes from Imperata cylindrica, also known as blady grass. This plant grows in the very driest of South America’s desert regions and is able to survive even on saline soils. This extract supplies the skin with moisture up to 4 hours.
The third important ingredient is Hyaluron. Hyaluron occurs naturally in the human body. With age, the body’s own collagen, a component of human connective tissue, gradually becomes less effective at regenerating and replumping the skin from within. Hyaluron’s ability to store large amounts of water relative to its mass is scientifically proven. This characteristic helps to counter human natural ageing process and maintain the skin’s fullness. Your skin will stay healthy and beautiful.*
First Lady’s Make-Up Artist Reveals She Uses Biotulin Gel
She’s spent eight years navigating the tricky waters of the White House and supporting arguably the most powerful man in the world, yet Michelle Obama doesn’t look to have aged a day. Now the secret behind the 52-year-old’s youthful look is revealed. Her fresh face is apparently thanks to a tip from the Duchess of Cambridge. The First Lady’s make-up artist Carl Ray says that Kate recommended Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel to Michelle – a non-injectable ‘organic Botox’.
‘Michelle Obama has been using this organic Botox gel regularly on the recommendation of Kate Middleton,’ Carl told Celebrities Style, adding that it is ‘unbelievable’ for erasing wrinkles.
Carl has previously revealed that Michelle likes to keep her skincare regime simple and natural. She relies on exercise, plenty of water, a good diet and sleep to keep her glowing.
‘It’s really pretty basic. I wash my face with a good cleanser, and I use a moisturiser with an SPF,’ she told Prevention. ‘Every now and then I’ll go to a dermatologist for microderm or a facial, but I don’t have time to do that all the time.’ The First Lady herself confirmed in an interview that she doesn’t go in for a complicated regime.
The Duchess is also a fan of natural skincare and is reportedly a convert to Beuti Skincare’s Beauty Sleep Elixir. This contains 14 plant-based oils that neutralise the enzymes that inflame and damage the skin.
It’s not known for certain when Kate passed on her skincare secret to Michelle. The pair were first introduced at a reception at Buckingham Palace in 2011, shortly after the royal wedding. They had the chance to catch up when the Cambridges hosted the Obamas for a private dinner at Kensington Palace.
Biotulin has no known risks or side effects and costs around £40 for 15ml.
There are several FAQs and some useful information on the application and effectiveness of Biotulin on its website.
I may give it a try; what about you?
