Katie Price Vice: Katie Price has Botox every six months

Katie Price, model, entrepreneur and author, 31, reveals her fitness and beauty regime and why you can’t beat the needle:

SKIN

Looking after my skin is not my strong point but the two things that do make my skin look better are sunbeds and Botox.

I used to use spray tan but it stinks so now I use sun beds. I know people say they’re dangerous and can give you skin cancer but I don’t smoke, I hardly drink and we’ve all got to die of something, so that’s just my choice.

I get my forehead and around my eyes Botoxed every six months and I love it. You can’t beat it.

It just freezes all the wrinkles and that’s what you want but I’d never have a full face lift, I’ve seen what they can do to people and I don’t want to go through that.

I do get the odd spot and I’ve got a few at the moment but that’s down to stress.

MAKE UP

I don’t wear any make-up if I’m not working but if I’m doing a shoot, going out or appearing on TV I’m like a drag queen.

I like lots and lots of products; in fact I like the whole of the Boots counter. I wear Dior Showgirl mascara, lipstick by Bourjois, Mac or Stila, and Mac eyeliner and eye shadow. I’m also a big fan of false lashes and I love Mac again.

I get facials every week – Alexandra House near my house are great – but I like to go to different places every week to hide from the paparazzi.

And however big a night I’ve had I always take my make-up off before I go to bed.

Whenever I’m in the car on the way home I’ve always got my pyjamas, my blanket and my make up remover and I always take it off on the way home.

‘I’ll be happy to grow old gracefully – but I haven’t ruled out Botox’

Skin deep: Edith Bowman says she's not bothered by wrinklesSkin deep: Edith Bowman says she’s not bothered by wrinkles

TV presenter and Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman, 35,  reveals her top beauty and diet tips and why she’ll never say never to Botox.

DIET

My mum used to have a whole shelf in her bookcase dedicated to dieting books, so that put me off for life. I’ve never followed a specific diet but I try to eat as healthily as possible.

Since the birth of my son Rudy 16 months ago I’ve done a bit of home cooking for him so I’m eating more fresh vegetables than I used to, but I don’t think there’s any harm in eating the occasional pizza or kebab.

I’m more body conscious since I gave birth and I have a few more lumps and bumps, but I don’t freak out about it. I just eat more greens, cycle to work more and work hard at resolving it rather than looking for a quick fix. As long as I’m somewhere between nine and nine and half stone then I’m happy.

SKIN

My skin is so dry that it literally sucks the moisture out of the air, so recently I’ve been treating myself to some facials at Fortnum & Mason with Sarah Brown, who is wonderful. She does this treatment called Dermabrasion, which sort of hoovers the skin cells off, and I use lots of Sisley products and also Cowshed moisturisers for my dry hands.

Wrinkles don’t bother me and I’ll be happy to grow old gracefully. It’s hard for me to say I’ll never have Botox as I’m not at the stage in my life where I need it yet, but my general feeling about facial cosmetic surgery is that you lose your expression and you lose part of you. I think you lose part of your identity.

CMF botox before and after

There has been an increase in professional men aged 25-30 having Botox, reports The Harley Medical Group.

The cosmetic surgery provider said that it had seen the growth across its 26 clinics, with men accounting for 20% of all Botox patients and that Botox is now the second most popular non-surgical treatment with men at The Harley Medical Group.

Dr Nick Milojevic, Botox doctor at The Harley Medical Group, said, “Young men in the City have been spending a lot of time frowning over the last year and we’re seeing the fallout. Men coming into the clinics are telling us that they want to stay looking wrinkle-free despite their demanding lifestyles. Many of my younger patients opt for “baby Botox”, a lighter variation of the treatment that uses extremely low doses of the toxin, giving a subtle and natural effect.”

In 2008, The Harley Medical Group saw an overall increase of 6% year-on-year in Botox treatments.

Botox lifts your mood

March 13, 2009

Some more good news about Botox! We found this in Aesthetic Medicine Magazine

Botox cosmetic injections for frown lines and wrinkles can alleviate depression, according to a new study by Michael Lewis PhD, School of Psychology, Cardiff University and Dr Patrick Bowler, medical director of Court House Clinic, London.

Published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology and presented at the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors annual conference, the new research suggested that relaxation of the corrugator (frown) muscles leads to less facial feedback for negative emotions. The authors asserted that the impact of this means a negative mood is harder to maintain and so the individual has a more positive mood.

Localised facial muscular paralysis is a consequence of the use of botulinum toxin type A (e.g. Botox or Dysport) for cosmetic dermatology. As well as being responsible for frown lines, the frown muscles – often treated with botulinum toxin – are universally important in the expression of negative emotions including sadness, fear, anger and distress.

The relaxation of these muscles means that the ability to form facial expressions of these emotions is reduced. Indeed, it has been demonstrated that people who have received Botox treatments for frown lines are rated as showing less negative facial expressions. The facial feedback effect suggests that the paralysis of muscles associated with negative emotions may have effects beyond the outward appearance of emotion.
