Joan Collins is famous for saying that “sex is better than Botox for staving off the aging process.” That’s quite a statement coming from a now nearly 80 year-old woman. This glamor girl, even in her twilight years, still looks great, and still graces the red carpet from time to time. Now, after all these years, she has finally gone ‘under the needle’ and caved in. In recent conversations with the media, she admitted to having Botox injections to keep her face looking young, fresh and wrinkle-free.
Born May 23, 1933, she is a star who has lived full life, with a successful acting career spanning over 60 years on stage, television (she is best known for her role as Alexis Colby in Dynasty) and film, numerous awards and several books to her name.
She starred in two films based on the novels written by her sister, Jackie Collins.
And yet, in her very latter years, her face and figure have stayed stunningly beautiful, using only proper exercise, diet and skin care. In fact, she’s a spokesperson for a new anti-aging cream.
If it’s true that she’s plastic-surgery free besides the Botox, then how is she keeping up with her looks? Joan says that she simply takes care of her skin, and always uses makeup to cover up her imperfections when appearing in public. She has taken care of herself throughout the years, and always made her beauty routine a priority. Besides all her tips and tricks, it would seem that keeping the company of younger men hasn’t hurt either. At the end of the day, a lot of it comes down to lifestyle and genetics. Clearly, this actress who became a Hollywood starlet at just 17, has excelled in both fields.
Joan Collins: Older Women Are Beautiful
She added, “The fact that there are scores of women looking stunning and far younger than their biological age seems to be overlooked, or, if recognized, then met with wonderment.”
Still, not everyone is impressed. At her age many other actresses would have already had celebrity plastic surgery to fight the signs of aging. And to many people plastic surgery is not such a big deal.Joan Collins aging gracefully and elegantly.
But she has made a firm stand against it, and has never admitted using it. In an article from thebosh.com, she even said that Botox is poison.
Granted, there may be other stars that are with her in her stance against plastic surgery, but her harshness on the subject that has drawn the ire of its readers. Or perhaps it was not the vehemence of her statements that they don’t like, but the perceived dishonesty in them.
Because it would take a lot of careful work to stay that fabulous, after all, quoting a news article from us, Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer said, “Joan Collins appears (emphasis added) to have stayed so ‘fresh- faced’ looking through multiple cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, browlift and eyelid surgeries.”
And Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California, said, “Joan Collins appears to have had a facelift, browlift, Botox, facial fillers, and possibly a rhinoplasty at some point in her life. Her work appears overdone, and she would not benefit from having any additional procedures at this time.”
