[video] Behind Brazil’s Extreme Beauty Addiction

I would of liked to see a more balanced view with black women from Brazil speaking about the pressures of being dark skinned in a society that is majority black people but are rarely represented in the standard of beauty.

From an all-female tattoo studio to a plastic surgeon’s office, Grace Neutral meets a range of young women to find out about how perceptions of femininity and identity are changing in Brazil.

 

[video] Mirror Twins: Sisters Get Matching Booties By Leading Identical Lives

Safe to say that they had the identical surgeon as well.

CURVY twins Miriam and Michelle Carolus claim their whopping four-foot butts are the result of an eye-watering 2000 squats A DAY. The aspiring models have used their dazzling derrieres to make a name for themselves and so far earned nearly 250,000 followers on Instagram. But they deny their success is due to surgery, saying it’s down to a dedicated regime that sees them mirroring each other’s lifestyle to pedantic detail. The girls even live next-door to each other in Miami, Florida, and work for the same plastic surgeon – but say the only work they’ve had is matching $5000 boob jobs.

Months after US authorities sounded the alarm, European officials are warning of dangerous possible side effects from the wrinkle-smoothing injection Botox, according to a German news report.
The London-based European Medicines Agency had by August 2007 recorded more than 600 cases of negative effects potentially linked to the popular cosmetic treatment, Focus news weekly reported in its issue to be released Monday.

In 28 cases Botox users died.

In Germany the Federal Institute for Medication and Medical Products has received 210 reports with a suspected link to Botox, which is used by millions around the world to iron out wrinkles. Five cases were lethal, Focus said.

Botulinum toxins including Botox are approved in the United States and Europe to treat a variety of conditions including spasms of the eyelids or neck, the easing of facial lines or excessive sweating.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned in February that using Botox can have serious side effects including death, but stopped short of banning them.
