As film stars from all around the world continue to descend on Cannes for the annual film festival, it was Cindy Crawford that drew attention last week when she appeared on the red carpet in a daring white dress.

Cindy-CrawfordThe model and mother of two looked every inch the supermodel in her plunging white gown, but it was her smooth, wrinkle free complexion that got people talking. At 47 years old the supermodel gave the much younger attendees a run for their money with her glowing and youthful appearance.

The model was attending the much-anticipated screening of new film “The Great Gatsby”. Her natural makeup and hair accentuated her age defying skin and figure. But Crawford has been very open in the past about exactly how she achieves such a flawless and youthful appearance.

In an interview, the model told Piers Morgan that she regularly visited a London cosmetic surgeon for wrinkle-reducing Botox treatments. A refreshingly honest approach to revealing how she manages to keep looking and feeling young. She has also been a regular fixture on television adverts endorsing anti-ageing creams and cosmetic products.

When administered correctly Botox can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provide subtle lift. As we age and collagen production slows down, skin can appear loose and lines begin to develop. Botox works by paralysing the facial muscles in such a way that causes dynamic lines (lines caused by movement) to soften.

There are mis-conceptions surrounding the use of Botox and the dreaded ‘frozen face’ but seeking treatment from qualified doctors, using the best products means you too can achieve a naturally youthful appearance, just like Cindy.
