I’m not sure what’s official royal protocol when it comes to nips, tucks, and Botox (at the very least, I know they’re not supposed to talk about it). But since Sarah, Duchess of York, isn’t technically part of the royal family any more, it looks like she’s free to discuss how many times her face has been flipped and rotated in the name of fighting time.
Fergie, who will turn 60 years old next week, recently divulged the details of her face work to The Daily Mail (somewhere her nephew is scoffing loudly). The Daily Mail asked Fergie to explain what recipe was used to make her face look the way it did at Princess Eugenie’s wedding last year to Jack Brooksbank. I’m surprised anyone even took notice of Fergie’s face from underneath thay giant golden snitch hat. But some people did, and Fergie says:
“The happiness was shining out of me because my daughter was getting married. I was so glad. I love Jack. When I’m passionate about anything, my eyes shine. Above all, it was being joyful for Eugenie that made me look good. But I’d had some laser treatment on my face which helped, too.”
She says she prefers those lasers to Botox, which she’s also very familiar with.
“I had Botox a long time ago when there was nothing else available. I really don’t like the frozen look. I’m so animated and I like to be myself. I don’t like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy.”
Fergie says she doesn’t like needles, but well – Fergie apparently loves having vitamins injected into her face. Fergie’s injections are a treatment called mesotherapy, and her doctor shoots her face up with a cocktail that includes vitamins, minerals, and acids to help plump her skin. Um, someone should tell her vitamins now come in delicious chewy gummies that you inject directly into your mouth (and I’m pretty sure the chewing counts as facial exercise). She also does organic fillers, which I guess is just Restalyne that comes from Whole Foods?
Five years ago, Fergie started getting something called a “puppet lift,” which involves threading supportive mesh into her skin and pulling upwards. Holy shit, Fergie is Mrs. Lowry from Brazil. She compares it to gardening:
“It’s like garden trellising for sweat peas. You insert the threads under the skin with a fine needle and they hold everything up. They also encourage collagen production. It takes a couple of months, then the sweet peas bloom! Before I had it done I thought, ‘Oh this is going to be painful,’ but it wasn’t bad. My skin responded well. I think if you look at photos of me after I had it done, I look much better.”
Fergie says she drops £3,750 on a thing called a 6D laser lift, and gets stem cell therapy on her feet at a clinic in the Bahamas. That involves 20 million cells being removed from her stomach and injected into her feet in an attempt to make new cartilage.
But it’s not all needles and…honestly, it sounds like its 99.9% needles. Fergie says she stays out of the sun to make sure she protects her skin. And Fergie also says it’s important to her that, no matter how much work she gets done, that she’s still able to move her face. I bet that’s important to her former husband Prince Andrew too. That way she can look totally shocked and surprised every new time Andrew is tied to Jeffrey Epstein.
