Now the secret behind the 52-year-old’s youthful look has been revealed, and her fresh face is apparently thanks to a tip from the Duchess of Cambridge. Michelle Obama´s make-up artist Carl Ray says that Kate recommended £43 ($54) 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. The gel contains a natural local anesthetic extracted from the plant Acmella oleracea, which promises to reduce muscle contractions and relax the facial features around the eyes and between the eyebrows. This promises to reduce fine lines and make the skin noticeably smoother. It also contains extracts of Imperatacylindrica, a hardy grass that grows in South America’s desert regions, which gives an intense moisturizing effect.
The third key element is skin-plumping Hyaluronic acid to restore fullness to the face. Biotulin claims to provide visible results in 60 minutes that last up to 24 hours. Carl has previously revealed that Michelle likes to keep her skincare regime simple and natural, relying on exercise, plenty of water, a good diet and sleep to keep her glowing.Kate and Michelle first met at a reception at Buckingham Palace in May2011.
The pair had the chance to catch up again when the Cambridges hosted the Obamas for dinner at Kensington Palace in April this year ‘It’s really pretty basic. I wash my face with a good cleanser, and I use a moisturizer 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.’ And 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, which contains 14 plant-based oils that neutralise the enzymes that inflame and damage
It’s not known for certain when Kate passed on her skincare secret to Michelle, but the pair were first introduced at a reception at Buckingham Palace in 2011, shortly after the royal wedding.
