We all admire the glamorous, youthful looks of celebrities, don’t we?
Their flawless skin, perfect brows, and age-defying appearances are captivating… And intriguing.
How do they manage it?!
Well, the truth is that many celebrity beauty trends may do more harm than good.
Here are five celebrity beauty trends that can age your skin and why they may not be as effective as they’re made to appear.
Let’s dive in!
#1. Bleached Brows
This trend involves lightening the eyebrows to a pale blonde or even white shade. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Gigi Hadid all appear to be big fans of brow bleaching.
Bleached brows can create a striking look if you have dark hair and/or eyes. But the process can also wash out your complexion and make your face look less defined.
Not only that, but bleaching can damage your brow hairs and cause irritation or allergic reactions.
#2. Oxygen Facials
Madonna, Jennifer Aniston, and Kim Kardashian West love oxygen facials. This treatment involves spraying pressurized oxygen infused with serums or vitamins onto the skin.
Sounds like a good idea, right? Who doesn’t need more vitamins?
Oxygen facials only offer a brief hydrating and plumping effect. So the benefits are short-lived, and come with a hefty price tag.
Plus, oxygen facials lack scientific evidence for long-term skin improvement, and they may not penetrate deeply enough to make a difference.
#3. “Baby” Botox
Meghan Markle, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Lopez have embraced the trend of “baby” botox… And I can understand why!
I do like the natural, subtle look of “baby” botox.
Baby botox involves injecting smaller doses of botulinum toxin (botox) into your facial muscles in hopes of softening your wrinkles.
But the trouble is…
The results wear off faster than regular botox, so you need more frequent injections. Which can get expensive, fast! And since the doses are smaller, baby botox also struggles to address deeper or more dynamic wrinkles.
Doesn’t sound super effective if you ask me…
#4. Ultrasound Skin Tightening
Ultrasound skin tightening uses radiofrequency or ultrasound energy to heat up the deepest layers of your skin and stimulate collagen production.
Which can result in a lifted, firmer look… As you can see on Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, and Sandra Bullock, who love this procedure.
So yes: Ultrasound skin tightening can improve your skin without surgery or downtime, but the results are subtle and short-lived.
You may also need to receive this treatment for months before any improvements appear.
And even more suspicious is the fact that months of treatment still might not be enough to correct significant sagging or laxity.
Seems like a wish and a prayer if you ask me…
#5. Submental Fat Reduction
Submental fat is a fancy way of saying “double chins”…
And the desire to reduce double chins, has led to the popularity of treatments like “Kybella”.
Injecting “Kybella”—also called deoxycholic acid—can dissolve fat cells and reduce the appearance of your double chin.
In fact, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Halle Berry are known to love this procedure. And if you compare their before and after photos, you’ll see a subtle difference in their chin’s appearance.
WHile Kybella can eliminate fat without surgery, there are downsides.
Submental Fat Reduction can be painful and risky. Injecting acid into your skin comes with many nasty side effects such as swelling, bruising, numbness, or nerve damage.
It can be tempting chasing the latest celebrity beauty trends can be…
