Sandra’s biggest skincare controversies you need to know
Sandra Bullock’s skincare routines spur controversy. A nose job, cheek fillers, and a penis facial… the things women do for ageless skin.
Sandra Bullock’s got a quite lucrative career as an actress. She earned the highest-paid actress title in 2010 and 2014. She’s been featured as a role model to follow through different spectrums. One feature, in particular, is worth paying attention to. In 2015, she was titled as one of the most beautiful women by People Magazine. It’s that title that broke out a spur of controversies pertaining to her looks. How has Sandra not aged a day since 30?
Let’s take a look at some of Sandra’s biggest skincare controversies.
Sandra got a nose job – that’s why she sometimes looks a lot like Michael Jackson!
Sandra does in fact look a lot like the King of Pop, especially during the past few years. It may just be a nose job. Though Sandra denies having done any sort of cosmetic surgery. She did share a few of her beauty secrets though. Every week she has 3 acupuncture treatments. That explains the taut skin. But the nose? Well, there are products that Sandra hasn’t commented on like HiFu, Ultherapy, and Thermage. These skin-care techniques rejuvenate the skin by increasing collagen production. They also build the skin up to be firmer and appear stronger… which could explain the Bullock nose.
In any case, skin-care routines are quite a private affair. Though, Sandra has been unashamedly vocal about her routines as we’ll see later on. The nose job controversy remains.
Sandra had a surgery – that’s why she had full cheeks at the Oscars!
In the 2018 Oscars, Sandra stunned us all in with the gold dress, lush hair, glowing skin, and…full cheeks. Truth is, Sandra never had fillers. She was completely bed-ridden and ill a few days before the Oscars and even thought of not going. Her ethics, however, didn’t allow it. It’s part of the Hollywood combo. She just had to do it.
Later, she found tabloids buzzing over her cheeks. Upset with the remarks on her appearance, Sandra decided to confront and shut media up. She explained that her face was in fact swollen because of all the allergies and side effects of her medications. She was also pretty upset about the remarks due to her lack of confidence and decided to use the victim-card. “I am affected by it because I don’t feel confident when I dress up and go on the red carpet. I’m not that person who knows how to work it. I try to channel Beyoncé. I do the same pose every time.”
Sandra’s penis facial is just gross…
Before we dive in, here’s a bit of background. The ECG Facial, aka Penis Facial, is a treatment that involves the use of cloned cells of baby Korean foreskin on facials. The cells are grown in a lab, ‘not continually harvested fresh from Korean male babies – the progenitor cells are cloned,’ one specialist explained. The facial is famously performed by the aesthetician Georgia Louise. ECG Facial is a skincare technique that actresses like Emma Stone and Cate Blanchett have taken too. ECG was first discovered by Rita Levi-Montalcini and Stanely Cohen who were awarded the Nobel Prize. It showed valuable healing properties in clinical studies. So it’s a pretty legitimate skin-care technique and it’s been around for a while now. So why the controversy?
When Sandra was invited on The Ellen Show, Ellen being an innate pryer, asked Sandra about the secrets behind the taut feminine skin. Sandra went on to explain the process. “It’s this way in which one forces through micro-needling – it’s a little roller, I think many of you know it. It pushes through the skin, ruptures the collagen and boosts it and you look like a burn victim for a day.”
‘It’s foreskin from a Korean baby. That’s what it is. Who comes up with that?’ Ellen pretty much voiced the opinion of the dumb-struck audience.
Sandra’s poor description of a legitimate facial procedure fired huge controversies on Twitter. One man, Riyadh Khalaf, lashed back at the penis facial with his tweet: “Rich woman laughs while she admits using the circumcised foreskins of non-consenting baby boys in facials so that she can look good. Can you imagine if she said she used the clitoral hood of baby girls? Would it get the same lol-tastic response?”
Tweeters, the foreskins are cloned, meaning no longer taken from circumcised Korean baby boys.
Another tweet that steered the controversy to a more serious issue was from Arianna North: “So it seems that Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are big fans of a type of facial where they inject a serum into your face – and the serem (serum) is made from the foreskin of Korean newborn babies. What the fuck (f**k) ??? I would rather just look old than this, it’s just so wrong ???”
Again tweeters, babies aren’t circumcised for facials. They’re circumcised for religious reasons. The circumcised skin’s useless. Lab work makes them useful. It’s just a biological, evolutionary, skin-treatment. The cells work to encourage skin cells to turn over rapidly and regenerate, so they’re often used for brightening, exfoliating, and healing the skin from Korean baby cloned foreskin to help generate collagen and elastin.
