Kim Kardashian would do almost anything to keep her youthful glow.
In a recent interview with allurethe 41-year-old reality star and mogul spilled on the work she’s had done to her face and clarified previous comments about just how far she’d be willing to go in order to look younger.
“I was kind of joking, but now that I think about it, I would probably eat s*** if someone told me, ‘If you eat this bowl of poop every single day, you’ll look younger,'” she said , referencing a previous comment she made to the New York Times, saying she would “eat poop” if it meant looking younger.
Thankfully there is no fecal feasting going on in KKHQ just yet, but Kardashian got honest about what makes her famous face so distinguished.
“A little bit of Botox,” is what she says is the only work she has ever had done to her face. “I’ve never filled my cheeks. I’ve never filled my lips.”
This revelation from one of pop culture’s most stared at faces may seem unbelievable considering how admittedly obsessed she is with looking good.
“I care. I really, genuinely care about looking good, I probably care more than 90 percent of the people on this planet,” she said.
From launching a nine-step skin-care line to her many comments about beauty, it may be hard to believe Botox is the only thing the SKIMS founder has had done to her face. But don’t get confused; minimal cosmetic injections aside, Kardashian still puts a lot of time and effort into looking the way she does.
“It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments,” she said.
The mom of four is not deluded about aging but says there is “nothing worse” than looking overdone.
“I’m 41. I always want to look appropriate. There does come a point when you’ve taken it too far — overfilled, too tight, too much cosmetic work. There’s nothing worse,” she said.
Spending the better part of a decade shifting and thus embodying a new standard of beauty is sure to come with its own stressors, but Kardashian says she’s in a much better place when it comes to her hunger for aesthetic examples.
“I’m at peace with not being perfect and I wasn’t like that before,” she said, before clarifying, “but I would still do anything to look and feel youthful.”
In regard to claims that she has set unrealistic beauty standards, Kardashian doesn’t think she’s done anything different than beauty icons of the past and believes if she can do it, then others can too.
“If I’m doing it, it’s attainable. There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] what just blonde waifs. My mentality was never like, you see them on TV or in magazines and pick who you want to be It was always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
Not so attainable? Losing 21 pounds to fit into a historic gown worn by Marilyn Monroe in time for Met Gala.
“It was a roller coaster of emotions,” Kim said of obtaining and getting into the dress that “absolutely did not fit.
And a roller coaster it was. Kardashian’s extreme weight loss and limited usage of the dress, in general, caused controversy. Typically plant-based, she revealed that she added meat into her Met Gala diet plan which she says caused a psoriasis flare-up that left her unable to move her hands.
“Psoriasis broke out over my body and I got psoriatic arthritis so I couldn’t really move my hands. It was really painful, and I had to go to a rheumatologist who put me on a steroid. I was freaking out. I cut out the meat again, and it’s calmed down,” she said.
Despite criticisms that Kardashian’s dramatic weight loss was unhealthy, she doesn’t see what she did as any different from celebrities who put on or lose weight for movie roles.
“If I was starving and doing it really unhealthy, I would say that, of course, that’s not a good message. But I had a nutritionist, I had a trainer. I have never drunk more water in my life. I don’t see the criticism for other people when they lost weight for roles — they are [considered] geniuses for their craft,” she said.
