Time spares no one, and celebrities are no exception.
Often, looking at photos of Hollywood stars, we notice strong external changes, sometimes even frightening. The once popular model from glossy covers in adulthood is impossible even to recognize. Why do some stars age earlier than others? We deal with dermatologist Maria Vasilyeva.
Sinead O'Connor and Britney Spears
A busy schedule, eternal touring, stress from public speaking often bring celebrities to mental disorders. The difficult fate of world famous singers was reflected in their premature aging. Sinead, once young and radiant with beauty, suffers from bipolar disorder at the age of 57. Britney Spears was in a psychiatric clinic and more than once was on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Maria: Under stress, the body produces a hormone such as cortisol, which not only leads to a general decrease in immunity, but also negatively affects the skin. It weakens its protective function, thereby promoting the multiplication of bacteria (including bacteria that cause acne), and also enhances peroxidation in skin cells. As a result, collagen is destroyed and premature aging occurs.
Pamela Anderson and Sylvester Stallone
People leading a public life quite often become addicted to various cosmetic procedures. Sylvester Stallone, in an attempt to stop time, has repeatedly resorted to plastic surgery. And the famous rescuer of Malibu, Pamela Anderson, has changed beyond recognition. In pursuit of youth, the stars are ready to go under a surgical knife and experiment with Botox injections.
As the expert notes, injections - if correctly selected - are aimed at correcting the effects of stress and maintaining youthful skin. Unfortunately, on many celebrities, the end result looks scary. With age, this "Hollywood beauty" disappears, and the aging process seems more noticeable.
Matthew Perry and Lindsay Lohan
Of course, addiction to alcohol and mind-altering substances does not work well on the skin. A creative life often leads to abuse, and addictions are reflected on the faces of once attractive actors. Matthew Perry, best known for his role in the comedy television series Friends, shocks fans with his unrecognizable appearance. The reason for this was, among other things, dependencies. Lindsay Lohan, while still very young (now the star is 34 years old), ruined beauty with bad habits. The once charming actress began to look much older than her age.
Maria: Smoking and drinking alcohol has a negative effect on the condition of the skin. With vasospasm, facial microcirculation worsens, therefore, oxygen saturation decreases, which leads to a drop in skin immunity. The collagen breakdown process is also accelerated, and frequent vasospasm can provoke a disease such as rosacea.
Of course, no one is immune from premature aging. From the experience of the above stars, you can see what things can negatively affect the condition of your face. The dermatologist recommends taking care of the skin from a young age and not forgetting about proper care.
Maria: Physical activity and a healthy diet undoubtedly prolong the youth of the whole organism. But we must not forget that this is not enough for the skin, since it experiences aggressive environmental factors and needs additional care.
