.....a woman on TV who hadn't had Botox or other cosmetic surgery.
It seems to me that we are so used women with plastic foreheads and unmovable eyes that this has become the norm.

I'm in my forties and look just fine and my age. But I do not look like Amanda Holden or Carole Vorderman or Kylie Minogue.

I find it terribly depressing that this is now the norm and real women's faces, old.
And has no one told them just how odd and unattractive it looks? ( presumably the aim is to look young and attractive?)

I read a magazine recently from 2003. It was SCARY that all the celebs looked EXACTLY the same then as now.

They seem to get to 33ish they just stop aging altogether.

it's not the norm when you walk around the streets though is it? not even in the fairly botox friendly area i live in. i agree it looks awful, have several friends who have it done.
