Girls, you have lovely faces. Lovely. Trust me, it is doing a great job, that face, of looking like you and expressing your emotions and experiencing the world. You too, boys. Lovely faces. All of you.
They announced it yesterday. You can now get Botox at Superdrug. That and other fillers. Which makes me feel unbelievably sad. When did it become mainstream to inject chemicals into your face?
This is not meant as a judgement. Honestly, am all for enhancing your assets. We know I like makeup. Which is rooted in a similar place, I guess, wanting to feel confident and like the best version of yourself. To feel beautiful.
But you already are. You really are. Maybe not in the same way as Kylie Jenner, but Lord knows we only need one of her. There is so much more to life than how you look. Take your perfectly lovely face on adventures. Let it see things, and taste things and tell people you love that you love them.
Be your own face. Own that face. Treasure your perfectly lovely face. Don’t balance it on a stool and let a stranger inject it with poison in Superdrug.
