By Cynthia Robinson

Briana Culberson grew up in Orange County, California, and with that came a certain kind of ... let's say cosmetic culture. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"Coming from Orange County, CA ([Botox] capital of the world), [I'm] a former [Botox] addict," Vicki Gunvalson's daughter began in an August 27 Instagram Story. "I started getting it consistently at 27 years old and mannn it was fun and addicting!" 

The Real Housewives of Orange County daughter went on to share how she changed her cosmetic and beauty habits over the past few years, considering her proclivity for living a "simple clean lifestyle," as it states on her Instagram Page, The Culbersons

Briana Culberson shares what she does now instead of Botox 

In her aforementioned Instagram Story, Briana explained what she does now "instead of [Botox]," which included eating a "clean, whole foods diet" that's more focused on "lots of animal fats." 

Also in the mix: CBD Beauty Boost from Young Living Essential Oils ($120), Longevity™ softgels supplements ($48.36), and Inner Beauty Collagen™. Briana noted she takes 2-6 softgels "daily," depending on how she feels, adding that the gels have also helped her "control" her Lupus

Moreover, the mom of four added that she does "1 scoop" of the collagen in her morning coffee as the perfect way to start the day. 

Briana Culberson explains her post-botox skin care routine including diet, cbd, softgels, and collagen.

Briana then shared other methods she swears by in lieu of going under the needle: Frownies, or plant-based wrinkle patches that "target the facial muscles to smooth and lift static wrinkles and expression lines," according to the company's website

The Oklahoma mom then added some more details of her skincare routine as well as a message for her followers. "My current goal in life is overall wellness. I'm not so much concerned with looks, although that is important to us in our own way. I have years of unhealthy habits that I'm working to avoid/undo. But health and wellness are the main focus."

In addition to her going off Botox, Briana recently shared that, after years of primarily following the ketogenic diet, she and her family made a major change to their eating habits

“We had to pivot from keto to a clean, whole foods diet to help one of our sons with some new medical shtuff,” Briana captioned a January 11 Instagram post. “Our focus is on nutrient dense, clean food. Mostly animal based.” 

Briana explained the family’s “meals nowadays” consist of primarily “meat (mainly grass fed/grass finished beef) eggs, fruit, raw dairy, organic rice, sourdough bread, [and] some vegetables (limiting a lot of veggies to avoid gut irritation — look up defense chemicals in veggies and gut issues).”

“I’ve gotten some weird criticism about what we’re eating. It’s become so normalized to eat poorly. (I’m very guilty of that in the past — and was oddly enough insanely sick),” she continued. “I’m the healthiest I’ve been since I was 16 years old. My child is healing. Someone may be criticizing my simple nutrient dense meal as ‘too boring’ or ‘repetitive’ while eating highly inflammatory seed oils, drive thru chicken sandwiches with over 30 ingredients, food dyes, high fructose corn syrup, processed sugars.”
