Cosmetic surgery, Botox and other anti-aging injectable treatments have practically become the norm in Hollywood, with many leading ladies choosing to go under the knife to achieve a more youthful look. What’s the impact of this celebrity trend? According to a 2014 TODAY/AOL survey, nearly 80 percent of teen girls compare themselves to glamorous celebrity images, with nearly half left feeling dissatisfied with their appearance.
On the flip side, other celebrities, like Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson, have spoken out against invasive anti-aging treatments. Julianne Moore, 54, also remains a firm believer in maintaining her natural beauty without the help of plastic surgery. As she told reporters at The Edit, “Age is about lifespan, about the journey we take.”
Ultimately, the journey to great skin looks different for everyone. At any stage in life, it’s possible to celebrate how far you’ve come without wanting your skin to reveal your age—and without going to extremes to look younger. Opting for this healthy approach may even inspire future generations to age gracefully.
If you’re proud of your life stories but not so fond of the tell-all wrinkles that linger, there are at-home alternatives to invasive procedures that can help you look your best over time, like using a daily skincare regimen, such as REDEFINE, to address common signs of aging, including loss of firmness and the appearance of lines and pores.
