“I’d like to think that I can age as naturally as possible. I don’t want to come out condemning anything anybody does, because I think that all of these things can contribute to making people feel better about themselves, and that’s great. But I also want to look like myself. I mean, we’re not going to live forever. I feel like I’d like to be 90. I’d like to be 100. I may not be lucky enough to have that happen. But, boy, I’m going to try.”
Julianne Moore, who has been outspoken about her aversion to Botox and cosmetic surgery in the past, clarifies her feelings about aging naturally in an interview with online magazine The Edit. At 53, she looks as stunningly gorgeous as ever, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she does live to be 100 (and still looks about 40). [The Edit]
Remember in middle school when you thought you had “chipmunk cheeks” and hated yourself for it? Well, your face was prime real estate! Celebrities are paying upwards of $1,000 a pop for cherubic contours like yours. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, “baby face” becomes your personal fountain of youth when you start to get older and ladies are clamoring for it left and right. Women with naturally round cheeks have a leg up over thin-faced women when they want to begin attempting to “defy the aging process.” (Except you’re still aging on the inside, hun. Nobody’s defying anything.)

At 79 years old, Joan Rivers has finally decided to embrace her natural beauty. This video is most definitely NSFW, due to a reference to Betty White’s poop. Keepin’ it classy, Joan.
You know that muscle in the middle of your forehead, right between your brows? The scowling muscle? Maybe you don’t. Maybe some people are blissfully unaware of their weird, clenchy forehead muscle.
Mine has always been overactive.
As a teenager, I always had this deep cleft of worry and contempt etched between my brows, even when I wasn’t angry. Sometimes, the spot would actually hurt from overuse. In my early twenties, it became more pronounced. The middle of my forehead would ache, and I would rub my fingers over it in circles, trying to relax it. Read more on The Gloss…
We all want smooth skin, am I right? But ladies, the key to getting it is not — most definitely not — injecting beef fat into your face. That’s exactly what Janet Hardt, of Homewood, Illinois, did, thinking that injecting beef fat into her face would mimic the effects of Botox. Instead, she ended up with a face full of hot, sweaty fat. Hardt was rushed to the hospital complaining that her face felt like it was burning, and died shortly after arrival. An autopsy revealed, however, that she actually died from peritonitis, which somehow wasn’t related. Either way, lay off the beef fat, mm’kay? [Chicago Sun-Times] Keep reading »
I thought Botox would change my life. I admired the shiny, perfect foreheads of my elders on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (or New York, New Jersey, D.C. and Miami, for that matter) and wished that I too could include myself in the natural-but-not club. I’m 28 and definitely the only one in my small-town Indiana family to even consider Botox. I thought it was a necessary form of torture–some sun damage from a few years back had left its mark in the form of noticeable (probably only to me?) horizontal lines across my forehead. It wasn’t quite as if someone drew on my face with eyeliner, but it bothered me. So with the help of a Lifebooker special for $179, I took the plunge before a trip to Jamaica where I intended to do a little more sun damage.
And here’s why I won’t ever do it again. Keep reading »
