After criticizing her “Sports Illustrated” cover, Martha Stewart emphasizes: “I had absolutely no plastic surgery.”
After the “Sports Illustrated” cover was published, Martha Stewart (81) defended herself against criticism of the pictures. They were neither heavily retouched nor did she have an operation, she emphasizes in one.
Martha Stewart believes in good nutrition and skin care
“I’ve had absolutely no plastic surgery,” said the lifestyle empire founder. You hate botox. Only “every now and then” let them do “a small line” with “certain fillers”. “I really, really don’t do much.” Instead, she highlighted her healthy lifestyle: “I have very healthy, good hair. I drink green juice every day. I take my vitamins. I eat very healthy. I have very good dermatologists.” She also pays attention to sun protection: “I wear hats and I wear sunscreen every day.”
She only had two months to prepare for the shoot in the Dominican Republic. She used this time to do Pilates three times a week, pay more attention to her diet and avoid alcohol. “I’ve had my regular facials, but maybe more often than usual,” Stewart said. She also got a spray tan and a full body depilation.
The images are also not retouched. “They are incredibly accurate images. I was very pleased that not much airbrushing was done.”
