While many of us praise actress Angela Bassett for her age-defying beauty and figure, the renowned thespian recently revealed that she has actually been able to maintain her wrinkle-free face thanks to “just a little” botox.
In a recent interview with New Beauty, the “Black Panther” actress shared some of her skincare secrets, including her use of the cosmetic procedure.
“I’m pretty passionate about keeping up with the skin care, especially being in front of the camera and on the stage. It’s important. When I’m not on stage or on camera, I’m pretty sans makeup—I think it’s good to keep a clear, clean fresh palette. I am a potions and lotions girl, so if you make me promises, I’ll give you a shot. I do really like the iS Clinical serums. I always come back around to them and they work really well for me. I also find good aestheticians everywhere, and then I have my dermatologist Dr. Pearl Grimes here in LA.”
Then Bassett proceeded to drop the biggest bomb when she revealed she’s had botox not once, but twice!
“I know lashes are no surprise! Botox is no surprise! I’m a big supporter of being natural, but I’ve done it twice. Just a little bit, not too much—I still need to express myself. What else? I’ve tried Ultherapy, too.”
Ultherapy is a cosmetic procedure that is supposed to stimulate collagen growth. So between her natural skincare remedies and a little botox here and there, Ms. Bassett still looks the same way she did when she had many kids in the 90s thinking she was the real Tina Turner.
