St Helens winger Anthony Stewart has swapped the rugby pitch for rather more serene surroundings, by opening up his own cosmetic clinic in Billinge. The Cosmetic Body Clinic offers a range of non-surgical treatments, such as teeth whitening, Botox, semi-permanent make-up and natural skin peels, with discounted prices starting at £69 for tooth whitening.
The 32-year-old sportsman scored 56 dries during his rugby career and was a regular for The Saints from 1996 to 2004; he also represented Lancashire and played for Ireland. Anthony reasoned that rugby careers can often be fleeting, and he decided to turn his hand to the cosmetic industry, rather than facing early retirement. He was anxious to point out that the prices at The Cosmetic Body Clinic were affordable for customers from all walks of life, saying ‘Treatments… such as laser hair removal are quite expensive. The machines we have are more advanced and powerful, and are far cheaper.’
Referring to his former team mates, Anthony also added that they had been ‘supportive’ and some were taking advantage of the perks of knowing the boss, ‘A few have been in for a hot stone massage, ‘ he said, ‘and their wives have had their teeth whitened.’ The rugby star is no stranger to pampering himself now he’s off the field either, he said; ‘I have had a few things done myself, such as the teeth whitening, and my wife Dawn is trying to get me to have a skin peel, which I am thinking of doing, but I won’t use the slimming machine.’
