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

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 »
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 »
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 »

Teenager Jodie King had tried several expensive anti-aging creams, but none would smooth the “wrinkles” on her forehead. So her mom, Margaret, gave her Botox injections for her 18th birthday. “Jodie’s forehead is like mine – she gets pronounced lines when she makes a facial expression. I knew Botox would solve the problem,” said Margaret. The £160 injections gifted to Jodie pale in comparison to the £45,000 Margaret has spent on cosmetic surgery for herself. Jodie is a Botox addict now, having spent £1,000 of her own money made from modeling on injections. Margaret, who has been getting the injections for 11 years and has had a nose job, two breast enlargements, a tummy tuck, and a mini-face lift, doesn’t see anything wrong with her daughter inheriting her vice. She’s even planning to give Jodie a nose job for her 21st birthday and has taken her for a breast augmentation consultation. “My mum’s always looked so glamorous and she uses cosmetic surgery and Botox to keep her looking young. I plan to follow in her footsteps,” Jodie said. “So what if I’m a teenage Botox addict? I can’t think of anything worse than looking old. I’ll always find a way to pay for Botox. Now I’ve started I can’t stop.” Keep reading »
