Reasons to Never Get Botox

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Speaking of injecting things into your forehead, the folks over at The Frisky have come up with a list of 11 Reasons Never to Get Botox, written by someone who's had Botox pumped into their face. One of the best reasons to stay away from the needle? It screwed up the writer's eyebrows. "Thanks to the Botox, I have a wonky eyebrow," she writes. "I can raise both brows, but the right one gets lazy and just droops after about 3 seconds. The left stays put. I don’t need a “Zoolander” expression often and now I’m stuck with one for four to six months." [The Frisky]
