Dr. Louis P. Bucky, M.D., F.A.C.S., injects Botox into the face of Betsy Rubenstone, 50, from the Philadelphia area, April 18, 2002 at the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Center at the Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. 

TikTok has become a platform for skincare enthusiasts to share homemade remedies, and one of the latest ones gaining attention is using flaxseed facial masks as a DIY Botox alternative.

In a viral TikTok with over 6.3 million views, TikToker Victoria Benitez asserted, “It’s Botox you make at home, honey. And the best part is it’s two ingredients: flaxseeds and water.” 

As she applied her homemade face mask on her face, Benitez extolled the “endless” benefits of flaxseed, saying, “When you put it on your skin, the fatty acids are gonna give you that glow, and it’s also anti-inflammatory, so it’s going to reduce any redness or inflammation.”
