Cosmetic treatments have been unregulated for far too long, which is why urgent reform is needed not only to protect the beauty industry, but the general public

Published

Following years of increased demand and rocketing popularity, non-surgical cosmetics treatments like fillers are still largely unregulated, posing a threat the public health and threatening the industry’s reputation. Medical professionals and beauty experts alike have been calling for stricter regulations on these types of treatments for years, and in a historic report published today by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Beauty, Aesthetics and Wellbeing (the APPG), it seems their calls are finally being answered.

The first of its kind, the comprehensive report includes findings from a year-long inquiry into practitioner standards and qualifications, licensing, ethics and mental health considerations as well as the implications of advertising on social media, concluding that “maintaining the status quo is not an option” and the current situation “not only puts the general public at risk, but undermines the ability for responsible practitioners and operators in this ever-expanding industry to develop.”

Calling for urgent reform, the APPG laid out 17 recommendations to help the government shape new regulations. Some of the suggestions include setting national minimum standards for practitioner training, extending the ban on under-18s receiving treatments, advertising restrictions on fillers and other invasive treatments and making fillers prescription only (unlike Botox, fillers currently do not classify as a medical product and therefore can be administered by anyone).

The group also urged the government to require social media platforms to do more to curb misleading adverts promoting invasive treatments, which follows the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruling earlier this year banning influencers from using ‘misleading’ filters on beauty adverts.

Extreme GLAMOUR Tries: We tried Botox and captured the whole thing on camera

Co-Chairs of the APPG, Carolyn Harris MP and Judith Cummins MP, said in a statement, “For too long there have been next to no limits on who can carry out aesthetic treatments, what qualifications they must have, or where they can administer them. We were also particularly concerned about the advertising and social media promotion of these treatments and how to make sure vulnerable people, such as children and those at risk from mental ill-health, are protected. We strongly urge the Government to implement the recommendations in our report and to take action to improve to improve the situation for the benefit of the industry and public safety.”

Minister for Patient Safety, Nadine Dorries added, “Far too many people have been left to live with the emotional and physical scars caused by their experience of cosmetic surgery. Anyone considering Botox, or fillers, should pause and take the time they need to consider the potential impact of surgery on both their physical and mental health.”

Suggestions have already been made for ensuring practitioners are adequately trained to administer treatments. Dr Tristan Mehta founder of Harley Academy and STORY is advocating for all practitioners to take a Diploma in Botox and Dermal Fillers in association with the The Joint Council For Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP). “Being Level 7 qualified shows you have been trained to be a safe and ethical injector – that you have received Master’s level training from experts in the field,” he says. “It shows you have studied not just injecting techniques but also anatomy, facial ageing, skin ageing, preventing and managing complications.”

Kathy Hilton Talks Paris’ Documentary and Depression After Learning of Her Abuse, RHOBH Prank and New Show Concept

Kathy Hilton shares what caused her to fall into a depression before revealing what concerned her about her martini prank and dishing on the type of show she’d love to star in.

Kathy may just have a friend role on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she’s quickly become a fan favorite due to her unexpected goofy behavior. In fact, some of her one-liners, including, “Who is Hunky-Dory,” have quickly become iconic in the Bravo world.

Nevertheless, the new reality star got serious for a moment in a new interview when she was asked about her eldest daughter’s troubling documentary titled This Is Paris. If fans recall, Kathy took some heat from Paris Hilton‘s fans after The Simple Life alum revealed she was abused while attending a school for troubled youth in Provo, Utah, that her parents had sent her to.

Kathy has never really discussed Paris’ revelation in great detail, but she got candid about the situation when asked if she knew about the alleged abuse prior to the documentary.

“No,” she quietly told Bustle. “I don’t think at that point that she even knew the question [about her schooling] would be asked. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Why wouldn’t [Paris] say something? Why would she not say something?’ I also got into such a depression. I didn’t want to talk to Paris about it too much until I had talked to a therapist.”

Kathy, who says she has also heard from close friends whose kids also suffered abuse at that school, admits she hasn’t been able to bring herself to watch the documentary.  “Let’s just put it this way: I’ve seen the little trailer things, and I would not watch that documentary,” shared Kathy, adding that she is very proud of her daughter for speaking out. “She’s already passed laws and helped people.”

Meanwhile, she also discussed RHOBH and the epic martini prank she played on her co-stars. Though she knew the joke would be funny, the 62-year-old admitted she was also a bit concerned about how the women would react.

“I knew it would be hysterical, but then again I took the chance,” she explained. “What if they got mad at me? That worried me a little bit.”

Speaking of pranks, Kathy isn’t quite sure if she’ll return for season 12 just yet, but she thinks she has a great concept for another show.

“I would love to be an Uber driver, and sell treats in the front seat,” she explained while pitching the show idea. “I’d like to have a thermos of coffee, gifts in the trunk, snacks, food, LA Dodgers hats, things that they could shop. And I would love for them to tell me where to turn. And then I’m just going to go the wrong way and drive them crazy. And then ask them if they would like a coffee or a treat, and then say to them, ‘That will be 35 cents for the coffee.’ And we have gifts. Where are you going? You’re going down to the beach, you need sunblock? Towels? A beach hat? And have all these things, but then give these very minimal prices. And then explain to them that we’re going to pull over, because we have to kind of settle this up, because this is not part of the Uber. Twenty-five cents, 10 cents for the doughnut. Wouldn’t it be funny?”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 airs Wednesday nights on Bravo at 8/7c.

Kriti Sanon on pay disparity in Bollywood: Patriarchal mindset is so normal but we’re slowly growing

Published

on

Actress Kriti Sanon has some quite interesting projects lined up ahead, including Om Raut’s Adipurush, Bachchan Pandey and more. While she is busy working on her projects, she took some time out and in a recent interview opened up on the pay disparity between actors and actresses. The Luka Chuppi actress believes that the patriarchal mindset is so normal that it will take a little time to alter and grow. 

In an interview with ETimes, Kriti Sanon said, “Yeah, when I do pulling the audience specially when the festival revolves more around my character, its on me, there will be more and more producers, who would feel the confidence of banking the film on me. I feel like its a circle, it kind of will even get that pay disparity. That’s how you grow I feel, in life. The only thing that I had pointed out which happens is when a male and a female actor have a similar kind of role, I feel like men don’t have to prove by having the film solely on them, to grow and to increase their price and somewhere females, sometimes have to prove it more by such kind of films, which is what I felt is a very weird difference. But I think we’re slowly growing and things are changing”. 

The actress further added the patriarchal mindset is so normal that it will take a little time to change and to grow. During her interview, Kriti was pointed out that the actresses like Deepika Padukone, Vidya Balan, Anushka Sharma have fought for pay disparity and getting women-centric roles, Kriti said, “That’s what I was about to say, the day we’ll stop saying female-centric because we never say male-centric. So, I think these small changes when they start coming and it kind of actually becomes equal in our heads when we don’t have any difference, these other differences of pay parity will also somewhere start balancing.” The actress further added that it should be content-centric.
