    How much botox is too much?

    Aside from facial paralysis, how can we, as a society, make a decision about the limit for a person's botox usage (for cosmetic purposes)?

    To each their own, but I personally think any botox is too much.  It's creepy and unnatural looking and doesn't fool anyone.  It is a form of botulism and I just can't see injecting that into my face under some false guise of "appearing younger".  The best way to stay looking youthful is to be energetic, eat right, get rest, manage stress and enjoy life.  Obsessing over age and appearance actually ages you more smile.

      Exactly, it is a toxin, so why overwhelm the face with poison?  And you can generally tell when they're using too much anyway.  I completely agree with your tips for staying youthful, commonsense and self-care!  Thank you for commenting, ChristinS smile

    I agree with ChristinS (almost wrote Christ just to shorten it smile). Anyway I think it looks rather pathetic when you see someone who used botox, and the problem is that you CAN see.. Just managing your lifestyle properly and if you're lucky good genes, you will always look good..

    Note that some people look absolutely beautiful just they can't see themselves in that way

      I totally agree, Alen, beauty is not all about how your face looks!  Thank you for commenting.

    The limit should be zero. It sends an awful message to women and young girls.

      Exactly - that you should aim to look like a mannequin.  Thank you for commenting!
