Cate Blanchett 'Frightened' by Plastic Surgery

If there’s one star in Hollywood who won’t be getting Botox anytime soon, it sounds like it’s Cate Blanchett. “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do,” she tells Fashion ETC. “I just know what works for me. I’d be too frightened about what it means long-term. Looking at women in their 20s doing this stuff, in the end all you see is the work. It doesn’t fill me with admiration; it fills me with pity.”

Luckily, the actress doesn’t have to worry too much about her skin: her pale complexion is basically flawless, a fact she credits to Japanese skincare brand SK-II (she’s the face of the company). “I’ve been using it for a long time,” she says, adding that part of her basic routine is born of laziness. “If it works, I keep using it. It’s about consistency.”

In addition to using the brand’s delicate lotions and masks — she put her own $250 skincare kit together back in 2008 — the Aussie actress relies on occasional oxygen facials, emu oil, Paw Paw Ointment and daily doses of sunscreen. But some signs of aging even Blanchett can’t prevent: when asked about sun exposure, she resigns, “You’re going to get it anyway.” Tell us: How do you take care of your skin?

Funny but most stuff is over 200.00 for a small jar of one item.. for all you would need would be about 800-1k per 2 mths? Thats why others may do plastic b/c after a year you would have about 6K in just stuff…Too bad its not affordable for the every day woman.

my 81 year old mother looks 60 because of a few simple rules that don’t require a trip to a makeup counter or a plastic surgeon
1) she drink lots of water and eats a lot of vegetables and fruits
2) she doesn’t smoke
3) she severely limits caffeine consumption
4) she avoids the sun during peak times between 10 a.m and 3 p.m.
5) she wears sunscreen on her face, neck, chest and hands.

The woman named as not having plastic surgery certainly have had. They simply chose to do subtle touches so it looks natural. Most have had neck lipo and upper lids reduced, etc….

If the women in their 20′s are, oh, say Heidi Montag, then yes, pity is in order.
