How To Prevent Crows Feet Header

Crows feet are often the first wrinkles women start to notice on themselves. Those fine lines branching out from the outer corner of our eyes reveal so much about how we care for ourselves. Dehydration, sun damage and repetitive face movements are the most common causes of crows feet. Before you go grabbing a needle filled with Botox, no matter how much damage you have already done you can still prevent further damage. For those of you who are yet to see the signs of crows feet forming, now is the time to take my tips into action so you can prolong having to take any drastic action in the future.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for using injectables and fillers when the time comes, but a few changes in your daily life can make an impact (and my tips are all much more cost effective). Continue Reading

Kim Kadashian The Vampire Facial Treatment

When Kim Kardashian decided to share her experience having a “Vampire Facial”, the world erupted in judgement. For a pregnant celebrity to literally be the face of a procedure so few had heard about, the name calling couldn’t have been thrown quick enough.

To continue my week of revealing personal stories I am going to tell you about the time I found out I had skin cancer. Yesterday I told you about the Rhinoplasty I had in 2008, and it is that story that intertwines with today’s story.

Today I am going to give you the full story about how my decision to have plastic surgery lead to me finding out I had skin cancer.  Continue Reading

To begin my week of personal stories I am going to start with the tale that saw me create The Plastic Diaries beauty blog. Many of you probably wouldn’t realise that’s where this blog started and that the name “The Plastic Diaries” was chosen because I created the blog as a way to keep a diary of my experience with plastic surgery.

Over the past couple of days I have shown you my mothers journey through Fillers and Freezers. We started at the beginning with some before photos and the backstory then we moved on to the graphic treatment photos but now it is time to show you the aftermath and some of the picks from the wedding.

Now I do want to declare I am a terrible photographer and probably need a photography class or two, so photographing the results of the treatments wasn’t easy for me. I will admit my photos probably do not show anything close to how they appeared in real life so I hope my caption descriptions can guide you a little bit at what to look for.
