Jerry Hall is not a fan of Botox


Former model Jerry Hall has declared Botox to be ‘silly’ in an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine; the 58-year-old added that she doesn’t like how celebrities look after they have undergone the anti-wrinkle treatment

Jerry – perhaps most famous for being the ex-wife of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger – told the publication that she is ‘very against’ the product, adding ‘I think it looks silly – people with mean-looking eyebrows.’

Despite her age, Jerry insists that she doesn’t try to maintain her appearance by adopting a healthy lifestyle and regularly enjoys drinking and smoking, as well as sunbathing. She joked ‘I am 58. That is pretty old, for God’s sake. I look pretty good for my age, and I am enjoying that. But I smoke, I drink, I like wine, I love sun tanning, I drink coffee; I am doing all sorts of things I shouldn’t do.’

The mother-of-four says that removing stress is the key to keeping skin smooth ‘I think you feel less stressed at my age. You are not so bothered – everything is water off a duck’s back. It is something that happens with age; I am not bothered about anything. What will happen will happen.

Felicity Kendal says no to further Botox injections


She is well known for her youthful appearance but Felicity Kendal has always kept quiet about how she maintains her looks as she gets older; now the 67-year-old actress has admitted that she did use Botox in the past and said that she would not do it now, as she wants her complexion to ‘match’ the rest of her body as she ages.

In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Felicity – who shot to fame with BBC sitcom The Good Life in 1975 – said that there was a certain amount of pressure to retain a youthful complexion in the entertainment industry but stated that she hasn’t ‘done fillers or Botox for ages.’ She went on to say that ‘there comes a point where you have to match bits of you with the other bits, otherwise you get a terribly random situation. All that is off the cards now.’

Felicity explains that she prefers to use exercise to keep herself looking and feeling young, rather than cosmetic treatments like facial injections. Speaking about her experience with dermal fillers she advised against it for people who have prominent cheekbone already, joking that ‘when your cheekbones are high, it’s chipmunk time.’

The mother-of-two also went on to talk about the role of women in society, adding ‘we’ve still got this hang-up about what women look like. I do it myself. There is still an obsession with women’s looks, and that’s never going to go, but we could be a little more generous.’

Twiggy talks about cosmetic surgery


In an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, 60’s model Twiggy has revealed that she has not had any cosmetic treatment yet, but added ‘that’s not to say I won’t’ because she has been struggling to find work as an older actress. The Marks & Spencer model also designs her own clothing line and judges on TV show America’s Next Top Model, but admitted that there is ‘no doubt’ that younger actresses have more success in Hollywood because older actors are always paired with ’20-something love interests.’

Twiggy, 63, spoke to the magazine about the pressures of aging, saying she does not believe in diets and has yet to undergo any cosmetic surgery, although she added ‘never say never to having work done’. She doesn’t seem to be a fan of Botox or filler treatments, complaining that ‘it’s peculiar’ when women have the injections to smooth out their complexion and try to look younger for longer. When asked about her trim figure, the model admitted that her ‘downfall’ is crisps and bread, she added ‘If I eat bread every day of a week, I can feel it around my tummy, so if I stop for a week I can really feel the difference.’

Mark Liddington, of the British Association of Aesthetic Surgeons, countered Twiggy’s stance on facial fillers, by saying that the injectables are very safe when ‘used responsibly by a trained practitioner knowledgeable of the anatomy of the face, the dosages required and who is technically proficient in [Botox] administration.’

Lulu changes her tune about Botox


Despite the fact she owes her youthful complexion to the anti-aging drug, singer Lulu has vowed to lay off the Botox injections as she nears sixty, blaming it for the fact that parts of her face became ‘immovable.’

‘I used to have Botox and I thought it was fantastic at first, but it quickly fades,’ Lulu told Good Housekeeping magazine, claiming that ‘it doesn’t actually help you to look young.’ She seems to have overlooked the current trend for celebrities relying on similar products to an unhealthy degree; Botox and the like can’t work miracles, but when used appropriately, they aim to get rid of small lines and wrinkles that make the face appear aged.

Although she’s not keen on getting any more injections, the Shout singer hasn’t ruled out cosmetic surgery in the future, saying ‘as with everything, it’s a case of going to the best person and having it done in moderation.’ She also commented that she is always aware of her appearance, saying ‘I never go out looking like a bag lady and I even put on lip gloss to walk the dogs. I’ll be trying to look my best until I’m eighty and beyond, God willing.’ Lulu maintained that she had her exercise regime and healthy diet to thank for keeping her looking young, as well as her positive mental attitude, ‘To me, feeling good about yourself as you get older is all about your attitude,’ she said, ‘if you think you’re old, you’ll feel old.’

Cosmetic dentistry sector “constantly growing”


Cosmetic dentistry sector The popularity of cosmetic dentistry such as dental veneers is "constantly growing", it has been reported.

According to Top News, more and more people are keen to improve the look of their teeth and are undergoing cosmetic dentistry treatment to give them a gleaming white smile.

Speaking to the source, cosmetic dentist Dr Paresh Patel said that in his clinic, the demand for teeth whitening and teeth improvement work is so high that he has started to write an online blog filled with information for curious patients.

"Not many patients fully understand implants, but the newly developed blog will help aid in educating them on all they need to know," he said.

As well as the US and the UK, cosmetic dentistry is on the rise in Romania, Top News pointed out. According to the website, some ten per cent of all dental procedures carried out in the country are cosmetic and the sector is set to grow by 17 per cent over the next couple of years.

Until their cosmetic dental treatment, women can make their teeth appear whiter by using red lipstick. According to Good Housekeeping, wearers with olive skin should wear orangey red, whereas people with pinker skin should try red lipsticks with a blue base.

Flossing ‘could help people remember more’


Flossing teeth could help prevent memory loss.

Research carried out in the US has pointed to a link between regularly flossing and improvements in memory.

ABC Local reported that gum disease could be a contributory factor to mental decline in old age and, as such, maintaining a good oral health routine and flossing daily could significantly improve a person’s memory as they get older.

“Researchers looked at a group of men and women over age 60 and what they found was that those who scored lowest on tests of math and memory had been exposed to greater amounts of bacteria that are known to cause gum disease,” commented Jenny Cook, executive editor of Good Housekeeping magazine.

Elsewhere, Dentistry IQ reported that Chicago periodontist Dr Robert Pick has claimed that individuals worried about their oral health should ensure they floss regularly.

He said that poor oral health is a contributory factor to cardiovascular disease and this accounts for the deaths of more than 2,400 people per day.
