As the daughter of a Cuban and an American Cameron Diaz turned her appearance to account already in her youth when she started a modelling career, before she changed to Hollywood many years later. Without having any experience Cameron was able to cast a spell over the producer of The Mask (1994) and got her first role as blonde in the mentioned film.
With her smile she fascinated a wide audience in the love comedy There’s Something About Mary in 1998, which was also responsible for her breakthrough. One film followed the other and soon Cameron Diaz was ranking among the best-paid actresses. With such a dream career it doesn’t surprise that Cameron is permanently wearing a smile on her face.
But in the last months we could watch her smile freezing more and more. According to media hardly anything of Cameron’s pleasant smile could be noticed at her performance at the Met Gala. The facial outlines of the Hollywood beauty were stiff and her countenance seemed quite impassive. Since these performance rumor has it that Cameron did deal too much with botulinum toxin, better known as botox.
In the beginning of 2014 the 41-year-old confessed the open secret about her botox treatment in an interview to Entertainment Tonight. And she was everything but satisfied about the result: “It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to [be] like [that]’ … I’d rather see my face aging than a face that doesn’t belong to me at all.” Cameron goes on to say that she likes her laugh lines: “I love it, I don’t mind. It’s like, ‘Guess what this means, I’ve smiled my whole life.’”
As reader of my blog you know that freedom from wrinkles through botox does also mean a mask-like appearance and a dollish facial expression. In addition botox causes degeneration of the cutaneous glands by which skin gets dryer and thinner.
It’s no surprise that Cameron seems to be only one of many women regretting botox afterwards: In the past year both Gwyneth Paltrow (42) and ageless Nicole Kidman (46) admitted that they are unhappy with the result from botox. But are wrinkles unavoidable in reality if the desire for naturalness ranks first?
Everybody’s hormonal glands become weaker over the years and as a consequence our body’s own hormone production decreases. We can see this lack of hormones in form of wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and faint and dry skin. Which opportunities do we have to preserve juvenile appearance without giving up naturalness?
Instead of hazarding the side effects of botox Hollywood’s beauties could choose a Hormonal Regeneration® (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, BHRT) with bioidentical hormones, which correspond to our natural human hormones in structure. Such a Hormonal Regeneration® brings missing hormones to our body in bioidentical form. Thereby our skin could be strengthened in a natural way from within. It makes especially fine wrinkles disappear, without getting anything injected.
In addition, treatments with stem cells extracted from autologous fat support skin rejuvenation and regeneration and restore lost volume in the face. Therapies with growth factors from skin cells as well as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) isolated from autologous blood are also suitable for local rejuvenation of certain skin areas. Thus Cameron and her colleagues could relinquish botox and more and more Hollywood stars are in fact already doing that.
Last July Cameron’s new Hollywood comedy Sex Tape was celebrating its premiere. Just the title was an incentive for a vast number of Cameron’s fans to watch the movie. Afterwards they could assess if Cameron does really keep her hands of botox – as announced – or if that was just one of many resolutions we don’t keep.
