COURTENEY COX IS GETTING REAL!

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Courteney Cox has always been a great beauty.  So what was she doing with all of those dermal fillers last year (inset)?  The 53-year-old candidly spoke with New Beauty about breaking some of beauty’s biggest rules and getting real. “I’ve had all my fillers dissolved. I’m as natural as I can be,” the actress reveals. “I feel better because I look like myself. I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do. Things are going to change. Everything’s going to drop … Those aren’t wrinkles—they’re smile lines.”

Aging in front the camera has been challenging for Cox.  “Hollywood makes it hard; this business makes it harder. I grew up thinking appearance was the most important thing. That as long as I looked OK, I would be OK, which got me into trouble,” she reveals.  Listening to friends and doctors’ advice, she gradually began layering injectables … until she finally realized that something just didn’t look right.  “I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend,” she admits.  “I was trying so hard to keep up, and that actually made things worse.”

Today Cox’s beauty routine is rather simple.  She washes her face with the Clarisonic, gets weekly facials with Mila Moursi, and uses the estheticians products — Rejuvenating Serum, Firming Cream, Oxy Cellular and AntiWrinkle Cream — and a good Vitamin C product.  For Cox’s stellar lashes, she applies Latisse and saves time by microblading her brows.  Makeup is usually some mascara and a smudge of eyeliner.  But don’t think that she is immune to a little help here and there.  “I believe in getting laser treatments like Clear + Brilliant. I believe in microneedling. I think microcurrent technology makes sense to strengthen your muscles.”

CONFIDENCE (AND FAITH) IN AGING!

Preparing for her first arena tour in ten years, the 70-city, Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017 with husband, Tim McGraw, wife, mother, and country superstar, Faith Hill, certainly knows the meaning of hard work.  Since releasing her first album in 1993, Hill has sold more than thirty million albums, earned twelve Country Music Awards and four American Music Awards.  But touring, “no matter who you are, it takes a lot out of you. It really takes a toll. The show alone is so physically challenging because there’s a lot involved, and then you’re singing on top of it,” she shares in an interview with New Beauty.  As the There You’ll Be chanteuse approaches 50 this September, she takes a rather laid-back approach to aging.  “I honestly don’t pay attention to it. If I did, my girls would notice and I don’t want that. It’s not a message I want them to have. The secret is being confident—with your age, with yourself.”  Hill’s three teenage daughters (Gracie, 19, Maggie, 18, and Audrey, 15), love wearing makeup.  “My girls have a better beauty regimen than I do. I don’t know where they get it from. I look like a clown when I do eyeliner!” Hill, who credits happiness for keeping her skin rosy, prefers to wear no makeup and her hair tied back.  McGraw appreciates his wife’s natural look, however, “Before I put it up in my ponytail, he always tells me to wear it down because it’s his favorite.”

NAOMI WATTS: TO NEEDLE OR NOT?

While most A-listers live in a frozen-faced world, actress, Naomi Watts, is the exception to the rule.  The  British-born, Australian-raised beauty, 47, has often been tempted to follow the trend.  “Personally I feel, for me, it’s tough to do Botox—but it’s also tough not to! Sometimes, I think I need the help,” she admits in the Spring/Summer issue of New Beauty Magazine.

But the low-maintenance actress, currently starring in Allegiant, part of the Divergent series, is also known to keep a low-profile.   “I’m pretty much makeup-free and in jeans, T-shirts and sweaters. I’m not even very good at actually doing my own hair or my makeup, and I’m one of those people who walks out the door with wet hair all the time.”

On aging in the movie business, she explains, “Of course, I want to look the best I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something. I have to be able to live in my face and tell the story of the character I’ve taken on. But…I’ll never say never.”
