Cheryl Cole talks about wrinkles and aging
Despite the fact she has had dental veneers, hair extensions, and wears lashing of make-up, former X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole has vowed to embrace the ‘natural’ aging process and avoid facial injections, insisting that wrinkles are to be worn as a badge of honour.
The Girls Aloud singer told Notebook magazine that her family do not approve of plastic surgery so she would try to avoid Botox and dermal fillers, for now at least, if only to escape the wrath of her mother Joan – who has always been close to Cheryl throughout her rise to fame. Cheryl told the publication ‘We earn our wrinkles. It’s character; it’s the map of your life… I have great role models in my mum and family. The whole Botoxing and surgery this is like, what? They don’t get it, they don’t like it. [My Mum] would go crazy.’
The media darling turns thirty later this month, but rather than being daunted by the milestone, Cheryl is looking forward to her birthday on June 13th, saying ‘I always used to look up to women in their 30’s and think, ‘This is when women are at their most beautiful, sexy and their most confident.’ That’s what I was aspiring to be and now I’m here too, I feel like ‘Cool, I can relax now.’
