Those crazy Kardashians love to bare all, from Kim’s full frontal selfie tweeted in March, to Khloe’s “honest thoughts” on cosmetic surgery. Interestingly, Khloe herself has not had cosmetic surgery, though she remains a staunch supporter of it.
Khloe loves what her makeup team does to contour her face, and she credits her workout routine with keeping her body curvy and bootylicious. Given her choices, Team Costhetics was surprised when the outspoken queen of social media told Cosmopolitan Magazine:
“I think plastic surgery should be viewed almost like makeup because we’re all putting on a f*cking mask basically every day anyway. When you dye your hair, you’re changing who you are, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I think people should get… whatever, if they want it — that should be your own personal decision.” – Khloe Kardashian
Increasingly, procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections and fillers are being regarded as smart maintenance rather than narcissistic indulgence. A recent TIME Magazine cover story was titled, “Nip. Tuck. Or else”, alluding to the necessity of looking good to get and stay ahead.
Minimally invasive, with fewer risks than surgery, injectables are just one more tool in the anti-ageing toolbox that keeps men and women looking and feeling competitive.
Khloe Loves Lasers
Khloe may not have gone under the knife yet, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t consult with dermatologists and skin care professionals to keep herself in tip-top shape. Her treatments of choice: laser skin resurfacing.
In November, Khloe posted on her website:
“Let me set the record straight, once and for all: I haven’t had any fillers or done any plastic surgery. YET, LOL. But I do believe in a great laser treatment. I do lasers all of the time. Lasers for skin unevenness, skin tightening, stretch marks, scars, acne. Nowadays, it’s so easy and you don’t have to go under for plastic surgeries. There so many non-invasive things available to us. I also am religious about taking care of my body from the inside out. What you put into your body — vitamins and food — it shows on the outside.”
Kardashian isn’t the first A-Lister to suggest that cosmetic enhancement is ho-hum. Simon Cowell once described his muscle-relaxing injections as “no more unusual than toothpaste.” Of course overdoing your dental hygiene won’t create sagging around the eyes and brow areas the way an over-aggressive course of injections might.
