When it comes to fashion and cosmetic trends, Hollywood has always been the best place to look for inspiration. This world, strange and unimaginable for most people, represents a group of chosen ones who are able to live their lives to the fullest without any concern for material or even moral obstacles. In that regard, they are dictating what is acceptable and what is not.
Since the 40s and 50s, when Hollywood launched a fab of smoking cigarettes (which is no longer acceptable by most people), to modern days when actors promoted different surgical and cosmetic procedures, there are different trends that originate from big screen. Life of glitz and glamour is appealing to many individuals so this is why many people choose to follow this lifestyle. It’s enough to take one look at one of the celebrities and immediately wish to have such appearance.
Although surgical procedures have been most popular aesthetic trend for quite a while, many stars are trying to find new, non-invasive treatments that will improve their looks. Keep in mind that in an industry where looks gives you a job, it is important to always stay on top of your game. These celebrities manage to create real life art from their bodies by using exercises and various aesthetic treatments.
In last few years, more and more people are using Botox. It is quickly rising in popularity as a great way of treating upper parts of your face, without need for painful and potentially problematic surgeries. The best thing about it is its longevity. Effects last from six to twelve months. So, even if you are not satisfied with the results or if you are willing to try something else, you can always change your opinion at any time. Also, unlike surgeries, it is not as restrictive. There is no special procedure that you need to adhere to. Treatment lasts for about 20 minutes and after that celebrities can get back to their daily routine.
Similar to Botox, medical fillers are cosmetic treatments that uses needles to administer the drug during a very short visit to doctor’s office. Again, effect is not permanent and the procedure is painless and harmless. The difference between these two treatments comes from substances that are used for the process.
Botox uses botulinum toxin, one of the strongest toxins known to man. It works by loosening the muscles and disabling mimic wrinkles which appear when we are frowning or smiling. Medical fillers use different substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid. Both of them are present within our body so there are no severe side effects when using these products because the body absorbs them easily. Unlike Botox, fillers are used to treat lower parts of face, neck and cleavage area.
As it can be seen, Hollywood stars are trying to carry out a natural life by using the substances and treatments which will pose least health risk. This global trend doesn’t only relate to aesthetic procedure but our diet as well. This is why, natural, holistic treatments such as sauna, spa and cryotherapy and hydrotherapy are quickly rising in prominence.
