Kim Kardashian will apparently do whatever it takes to look younger.
I’ll try anything,” the “Kardashians” star, 41, told The New York Times in an interview published on Wednesday.
“If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might. I just might,” she joked
The article coincided with the announcement of the Skims founder’s forthcoming skincare line, SKKN by Kim, which launches later this month.
The new line, SKKN by Kim, is a nine-product skin routine mirroring her own elaborate regimen: cleanser, toner, exfoliator, hyaluronic acid serum, vitamin C serum, face cream, eye cream, oil drops, and night oil. The brand launches next month and joins her existing makeup and shapewear lines, KKW Beauty and Skims.
The nine items come to an eye-popping total of $630, which Kardashian told the Times was necessary in order to include the ingredients she wanted. She said she uses the products on her neck and décolletage all the way “down to my nipples.”
The Times clarified that, as yet, “excrement is not one of the ingredients in Ms. Kardashian’s new skin care line.”
Proving her manta of being willing to try anything, Kim famously underwent an anti-aging procedure in 2013 nicknamed the vampire facial.
The ‘proper’ name for a vampire facial is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.
It’s essentially a regenerative therapy, which uses nothing but the patient’s own blood.
“A few years ago, I heard about a ‘vampire facial,’ and I was so intrigued,” she wrote on her website.
It turns out that she was pregnant when she underwent the procedure, and therefore couldn’t use a numbing cream or painkiller before the treatment.
“It was really rough and painful for me. It was honestly the most painful thing ever! It’s the one treatment that I’ll never do again.”
Speaking about the skincare line, Kardashian further added: “So many people want to act like they don’t care about how they look,” she explained to the Times. “I’m not acting like it comes easier or it’s all natural. You just don’t wake up and use whatever. You wake up, you use ingredients. The P.R.P. facials, stem cell facials, lasers – all of that is work.”
“I’ve been so privileged to learn about skin and skin care over the years from the world’s top dermatologists and estheticians, and every bottle from my new line is filled with the knowledge I’ve accumulated along the way,” she continued, adding that her “clean, science-backed ingredients” are “designed to nourish all skin types, tones, and textures at all stages of maturity,”
