‘The most ridiculous thing I’ve done in the name of beauty’
Celebrities live out half their lives in the public eye and have to put their best face forward at all times.
So it is no surprise that vanity in the showbiz industry is almost a given.
So just as they are a treasure trove of beauty tips and tricks, celebrities make their fair share of mistakes as well.
Actress Michelle Chong freely admitted in an interview with Urban that she has tried Botox, but regretted it after.
Said Chong: “In my first movie Already Famous, I had to act as a girl in her twenties, and my skin doctor convinced me that Botox would make me look younger. I think he gave me too much and I ended up looking perpetually evil and wide-eyed.
“Someone even commented on my Instagram photo, “Why does Leticia look like Michael Jackson?
“Luckily, most of the effects of the Botox jabs faded by the time I started filming my movie about three months later.”
K-pop star Sandara Park (better known as Dara) from girl group 2NE1 shared that she drank a cup of vinegar every night for about three months because she heard it could maintain her fair skin.
“It is not easy to drink a cup of vinegar every day and I wasn’t sure if it worked, so I stopped. It’s hilarious when I think about it now,” said the 29-year-old.
Here are some of the most ridiculous things celebrities have done in the name of beauty, according to Urban.

Sandara Park: While growing up in the Philippines, where the climate is hot and sunny, I was always worried about having tanned skin because I like to be fair. I heard that drinking white vinegar can help to keep skin looking white, so I drank a cup every night for about three months.
