Celebrities are known to have the ability to influence the public in so many ways. Whether it’s buying the same workout clothes that Jennifer Lopez wears to help her look great while she’s keeping fit or getting the same shoes that your favourite singer always promotes, celebrities have a definitive impact on us. One area where this is especially true is beauty. As Hollywood celebrities always seem to look glowing, youthful, and beautiful, many of us ask the question “How do they do it?”
Many ultra-famous and worldwide celebrities have been instrumental in the growing non-surgical cosmetic world. Prominent among these big names are the Kardashian/Jenner sisters Kendall, Khloe, Kim, Kylie, and Kourtney. The “Kardashian Klan” has had a staggering effect on young millennials and their interest in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. As the social media-active sisters have revealed and promoted several procedures and treatments that help them achieve their famous Kardashian look, the young public and their large following has been significantly more interested and willing to try these procedures. After Kim Kardashian admitted to using hyaluronic acid filler in her cheeks to give her face a contoured and youthful look, many millennials have realized that fillers aren’t only for people who are looking to restore their youth. More recently, Kylie Jenner, the youngest and most influential in the Kardashian/Jenner family, publically discussed and admitted to dramatically changing her look with the use of hyaluronic acid filler in her lips. This sparked a trend amongst an even younger group of people, with people as young as 16 longing for lips as voluminous and plump as Kylie’s.
Celebrities are not only known for their plump lips and defined facial features, but also their perfect-looking skin. Many celebrities in their forties and fifties have spoken about what they do to keep their skin looking wrinkle-free, young, and healthy. But more recently, younger celebrities like Cara Delevigne and Jennifer Lawrence have shared the secrets to their everyday glow. Ultra-famous super model Cara Delevigne swears by the Venus Freeze Treatment. According to the Venus website, the Venus Freeze Treatment “is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in reducing circumference, improving cellulite, tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Freeze™ uses Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow”. Delevigne loves the treatment as a pick-me-up before fashion shows to ensure that she is looking her absolute best. The young model said “my skin gets worse during fashion shows because of all the travelling, so I prepare at the beginning of the season by having Venus Freeze Face Lift Facial, which zaps heat into your skin, you come out with plump skin because it helps to create collagen”.
Similarly, Jennifer Lawrence has spoken about her microdermabrasion treatments, which she regularly gets to maintain her flawless skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that aims to resurface the skin. It is a type of exfoliation performed with a diamond tip that brushes against the skin’s surface with the help of a vacuum. This helps remove dead skin cells at the surface, leaving a fresh and resurfaced face.
Although some people are longing to look exactly like their favourite celebrity, most individuals just want to find ways to look their absolute best without changing who they are. Young celebrities like Kylie, Cara, and Jennifer are influencing the non-surgical cosmetic world by showing millennials that their trademark features and flawless skin is not just a result of good genes. They’ve revealed to the younger generation that there are options to help you look your best.
