Doutzen Kroes uses acupuncture to combat signs of ageing on her face.
The Dutch supermodel is one of the most in-demand names in the fashion industry, having scored major gigs with the likes of L’Oreal and Victoria’s Secret.
Yet, Doutzen has noticed changes to the texture of her skin in recent years, with her right eye now appearing smaller than her left – but instead of trying Botox or fillers, she is opting for regular “facial rejuvenation acupuncture” sessions.
Noting that her acupuncturist Cas Rooseboom promised her that her face will “look a little more plump” after 10 sessions, the 35-year-old explained in a video for her YouTube channel, “(My face) will have a little bit of a lift. Like, how I would like to be my face is just a little bit more (lifted). It’s not a big difference, but I just feel like my face since a few years has… I don’t know how to explain it… It’s just falling apart.”
Doutzen went on to show how Cas inserts acupuncture needles into her face, hands, and feet, with the theory being that the process will mean “there will be collagen pushed into my face”.
And while the mother-of-two emphasised that ageing is normal, she is determined to do all she can to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay for as long as possible.
“Because I’m working in the fashion industry people look at me more up close and are maybe looking at ageing a different way. I feel like I’m dealing with insecurities as well when I come to set, and I haven’t seen someone for 10 years and, obviously, I look different now than I did 10 years ago. I like to think that I don’t care about it, but I do,” she shared. “I do care, and I do everything I can to slow down the ageing process. I do facials, I choose very carefully what I put into my body, I have a very active lifestyle, and recently, I discovered acupuncture.”
