Catherine Zeta Jones Has “No Reservations” About Botox

When Catherine Zeta Jones stepped out last week with her husband, Michael Douglas, it wasn’t Mr. Douglas’s good health that was causing whispers amongst guests and journalists. Catherine appeared to be sporting a rather youthful appearance for her 42 years. An appearance many have attributed to a visit to a cosmetic doctor.

As a known smoker, Catherine Zeta Jones is one of many women who have suffer the side affects of smoking. Smoking causes skin to dramatically age, so it was particularly surprising to see Catherine with a flawless complexion. The Welsh film star looked healthy and line free when she appeared alongside her husband at the 2012 Windward School benefit at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, spoke to Radar.com about Catherine’s new look. He said, “Catherine Zeta-Jones looks like she’s beginning to follow in her husband Michael Douglas’ plastic surgery footsteps,”

“Her cheeks look somewhat plump, and may be due to injections of a filler like Sculptra. Her forehead and crows feet are also very smooth for a woman her age, likely a result of Botox injections,” he explained.

The smoothness of her cheeks makes Catherine look young and healthy, and while she is both, the healthy skin tone of her cheeks may have been supplemented with a small amount of filler. This helps explain the lack of lines around her mouth as well as the firmness of her lower face.

Dr. Youn explained, “Botox is typically not injected under the eyes, though, hence the wrinkles in her lower eyelids,”

It’s not safe to use Botox below the eyes, so there are still fine lines and wrinkles there, but the tops and outer edges of the eye are smooth and healthy looking. Catherine is a perfect example of how a combination of Botox and fillers can help keep the face young with minimal intervention.

Catherine and her family have been under significant stress since husband Michael was diagnosed with throat cancer in August 2012. It is therefore understandable that given the recent stress and persistent press scrutiny, Catherine may have needed some help from non-surgical treatments. She has however, managed to strike a balance between preserving her natural beauty and stalling the sands of time.

For years you may have tried and tested hundreds of products to give your skin a certain lift. The amount of choice available in terms of beauty products is incredible and can send us into a spin.

Does Dry Skin = More Wrinkles?

It may be the tales of fish wives, but for years many women have believed that oily or combination skin results in fewer wrinkle. Is this true? Do those with dry skin suffer lines from an earlier age? And what are the solutions?

Nobody really likes wrinkles and they are the sure fire way to make someone look older, despite that persons actual age.

Those who suffer with dry skin could be prone to more wrinkles as the skin is dehydrated, looses moisture and as time moves on less collagen is produced. This would make the skin sag and not plump out as it would have in our younger years. As we age, skin becomes thinner and this causes lines and furrows to appear around the eyes and forehead.

Dry skin can produce premature wrinkles on skin. Those who suffer from dry skin will tend to have wrinkles appear before those with normal or oily skin. Sun damage also increases the appearance of fine lines, as well as smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle.

What are the solutions?

We are lucky enough to live in an age full of choice and no longer do we need to put up and shut up.

From basic creams and wonder products found on the high street, to cosmetic surgery, the other end of the scale. Those products and treatments that lie in between, provide results which are natural and lasting.

Non-invasive treatment can erase fine lines and furrows, resulting in the smooth youthful complexion you desire.

Certain treatments can also re-plump your face, so if you were famous in your day for amazing cheekbones, but time has seemed to make then disappear, non-invasive treatments can re-create the shape of your face that attracted many admirers.

If you do have dry skin, the best prevention from an early age is the use of rich moisturisers both day and night.
