I’m starting to feel the pressure to get Botox and fillers because they are just so normal now

I don’t have a skin regime. My skin seems to share some DNA with aloe vera plants or cacti or other organisms that thrive on neglect. My grandmother had a skin regime and it stood to her — even as a corpse, she glowed. Her routine was more about consistency than high-end products. Oil of Olay, day and night, from the age of 20. From forehead to collarbones.

I drink a lot of water and I would say I wash my make-up off 80pc of the time. My skin isn’t bad, but I’m starting to feel the pressure of Botox and fillers because they just seem so normal now. Dermal fillers are as popular as the administration of them is unregulated. That means you can have anyone who calls themselves a cosmetologist — maybe having learned on a weekend course — inject filler into your face in your living room. Or theirs.
