”Beautician Kerry, 34, from Birmingham, buys the substances online and injects them into her daughter’s forehead, lips and around her eyes.
The beauty-pageant obsessed single mum also takes her to have her body waxed, in a bizarre bid to stop her growing hair when she eventually hits puberty.
Kerry says these shocking and potentially dangerous treatments will guarantee Britney becomes famous as a teenager.
She says: “What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star.
“I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer.
“I’m sure people reading this will think I am being irresponsible, but I ensure that I test the Botox and fillers I buy online on myself first.
“All I want is for Britney to have the best start in life, so it is easier for her to become a superstar.
“More mothers should do it for their daughters.”
“When she’s a superstar earning millions, she’ll always be grateful for what I did when she was so young.”
A girls perceptions of ‘beauty’ are unfortunately formed back in high school- by the ‘mean girls’ phenomenon. The group of girls who hang around in cliques, never seem to go through gawky teenage years, and spend their time in school passing comments on anybody who doesn’t follow their definition of ‘normal’, little realising the kind of damage they are inflicting on the self esteems of impressionable young women. They define ‘pretty’, ‘cool’, ‘nerdy’, ‘chic’ and somehow throughout our lives we continue to carry those perceptions with us, always trying desperately to fit in to these categories. They dont leave us in high school, they are there in college, in university and even at the work place.
Call it ironic, all of this coming from a person who writes about beauty products and makeup (which is generally percieved to be shallow), but at the end of the day, all makeup and beauty products do is give you a bit of fun, a bit of color to your life, and an instant confidence boost. They cannot change what ‘Real Beauty’ means.
I wish the mother of the 8 yr old child understood this. She is making an 8 yr old girl, who should be out playing with her friends worry about wrinkles on her skin, and defending it at that saying that she will be a superstar. NO She wont. She will grow up to be a troubled girl with problems of self image and a distorted sense of beauty. Years down the line if i have kids, and they are girls i want them to grow up thinking that no matter what color, shape, size they are…they are still beautiful.If more moms did THAT , we would be living in a much better world.
