Getting different procedures done to enhance the human body has become more of a “trend” in the past couple of years. Many celebrities have influenced other people to change their bodies or appearances by getting certain surgeries, fillers, or botox. Some well-known celebrities that have gotten these things done include Khloe Kardashian, Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and so many others. 

Some of the ingredients in these injections would never be expected. The liquid that is used to dissolve fillers is made up of testicles, specifically sheep’s. Lip filler dissolving is a treatment that can be used to quickly break down dermal filler safely and comfortably. Anti-wrinkle injections are derived from the world’s most deadly toxin, also known as bacterias. 

Botox and fillers are not only harmful to people but also to animals. Although most botox and fillers are considered vegan, they still have to be tested on animals. This is because since it is classified as a medical product, it is required by law. These animals are being used to test those products, and then soon enough they will endure a slow and unnecessary death. Is it really worth it to purposely harm them when vegan, cruelty-free, products like lip plumpers are just as accessible?  

Even breast implants are tested on animals. This is normally to check the implant’s long-term safety. The casing materials are also most likely to be derived from animal by-products.

Everyone is naturally beautiful, so it is easy to simply enhance that beauty by using safe cruelty-free products that are not hard to get with just a simple drive to the store. It will also save money by not having to commit to the large fee that comes with the surgeries. Most people believe that natural beauty is better than fake altercations anyways, so everyone should learn to love and embrace their natural self.
