Girl Talk: I Got Botox … And It Didn’t Work!

A few years ago, I got Botox. A little here. A little there. The needle goes in. You want to scream. And a few days later, voilà! That part of your face is paralyzed. Over a couple years, I did it maybe eight times. Then I stopped. I’d had enough of injecting poison into my face. But a couple years after that, I wanted to do it again. I ponied up a few hundred dollars, lay down on the table, and got another round of botulinum toxin injected into my visage. But the unthinkable happened. It didn’t work! Keep reading »

Ageism Campaign Wants You To Embrace Wrinkles

Being wrinkly makes you interesting? And here we’ve been obsessing about wrinkle creams and anti-aging beauty products, thinking that getting old is a big downer. This ad campaign, called “See The Person, Not The Age,” recently launched in Scotland and aims to fight ageism through wrinkled-up billboards that display slogans like these: “This is proof you can still have wrinkles and do a good job” and “Why don’t you notice people with wrinkles too?”

Could wrinkles ever really be thought of as “beautiful”? Why not? If this prevents just one person from feeling pressured to get Botox, it’s a very good thing. Why do wrinkles have to be so stigmatized anyway? What do you think of this campaign? Progressive? Or did you just wrinkle your nose? [StyleFrizz.com] Keep reading »

How To Tell If She’s All Botoxed Up

The way to instantly tell if your favorite celeb—or favorite suspected filler-happy friend—has had Botox?

Is It Unethical Not To Disclose The Collagen In Your Lips?

For better or worse, plastic surgery—both in its most extreme (Jocelyn Wildenstein) and subtler (Megan Fox) forms—is fully entrenched in modern day society. In fact, Botox gatherings have replaced Tupperware parties, celebrities flaunt face-lifts on the red carpet and it’s become downright acceptable in plenty of circles. But no matter how you feel about plastic surgery, a recent paper that appeared in the Journal of Evolution and Technology brings up an angle we hadn’t considered. Reports The New York Times today:

…the doctoral candidate says plastic surgery throws a monkey wrench (sorry) into the Darwinian process of selecting the best genes to proliferate the species — since people who otherwise might not have been perceived as desirable mates for procreation allow themselves to be perceived as desirable enough to pass on their genes.

Let’s take a closer look. Keep reading »

What Would Happen If Anti-Aging Products Really Worked?

As rational, educated women, we know in our heads that when it comes to the often outlandish promises skincare companies make, applying a so-called wrinkle cure will not actually erase lines from our face. As people bombarded with airbrushed images of perfect, supernaturally youthful skin and famous idols who fight each skin fold with a double dose of Botox, it’s safe to say that we’re warily interested in aging and the lack thereof. And when it comes to beauty products in general, is it really so crazy to ask for something that does what it promises? According to a Daily Mail report, we may be getting closer to true product efficacy and real, not just promised, miracles in a jar. Keep reading »

The “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Get-Pretty Secrets

OK, so in terms of “Housewives” seasons, the ladies from the Jerz are neck and neck with their sisters from Orange County in terms of plastic surgery, Botox, beauty treatments and fitness trainers. Everyone watched as Gina and Vicky hit up morning boot camp sessions to get toned, cringed as Tam-RA had Botox shot straight into her ocular cavity and discussed whether Gretchen’s boobs were real or fake. Out in Cali-land, physical upkeep just seems so much more out in the open than it is in New Jersey (save Danielle’s Botox party, pictured above, and the first episode dumbbell pumping in almost zero clothing). Ever wonder exactly what physical upkeep goes into being a housewife from the garden state? W magazine gets the goods from Dina (weekly blow-outs! thrice-weekly private Pilates sessions!), Caroline (fake nails!) and Danielle (pretty much anything her bank account—or her boyfriend at the time’s bank account—can handle!). Check out the primping details! [W] Keep reading »
