A friend of mine brought up the topic of Botox on Facebook earlier, with the following statement:
A friend doesn’t like the thought of putting poison into our bodies to keep them looking young, which is a good point. BUT, we actually put poisons into our bodies all the time! For example.. alcohol! So why not make the poison work to our aesthetic benefit?!
Maybe someday I’ll feel differently, but for now my view is this…
I would much rather have a few wrinkles and look as though I am older and wiser than to get a bad Botox job and look as though vanity bit me in the ass.
Some of the bad Botox jobs that come to mind are Suzanne Somers (she was beautiful without it), Janet Dickenson (can’t fix ugly inside), Kate Gosslin (the eyebrow disaster taught her a lesson I think) or Lisa Rinna (leave the lips alone!).
So what do you think about Botox? Have you tried it? Would you try it? To what extent would you go to maintain a youthful appearance?
