Nicole Kidman finally admitted to using Botox after years of denial. She swears she doesn't use it anymore. This photo is from the 2012 Golden Globes....natural or Botox? She's 45.
Honestly, I see nothing wrong with using injectables as long as you are doing it for the right reasons, you understand the risks, and you do it under medical supervision. I do mind when stars pretend like this trend isn't happening in Hollywood because it's happening all around us. Why do you think sites like Groupon and Living Social offer discounts on Botox or Juvaderm? It's because it's a popular dermatology service. It's why dentists are suddenly offering Botox with a cleaning. It brings in money and clientele to their offices.
Marica Cross is 50 years old. Botox or Natural?
If you think this trend is going to go away, it's not. Cosmetic injectables are here to stay as society constantly seeks the secret elixir to staying young. We are living longer and we want to look as good as possible. Is it narcissistic? Perhaps, but if it makes someone feel better then there really is no problem with it. Just do it sparingly so you look refreshed, not frozen. And Hollywood, stop lying about it, it doesn't have to be such a dirty little secret.
