The 50-year-old actor discussed the topic of cosmetic surgery and injectables during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, where she was asked what beauty advice she wants to pass down to her two daughters, Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13, who she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck.
“My advice is to look at the mirror less and be cautious when it comes to injecting anything into your face,” she said. “Be very, very incredibly judicious and wait as absolutely long as possible to add anything. Don’t think that you’re 37 and you need to be shooting up your face.”
“Look in the mirror less, obsess less, and look at the rest of the world to see what you could be using your time for instead. We all look at our faces more than people used to, and it doesn’t do you any good,” she added. “You obsess over changes or how to fix something on your face.”
In addition to caution when it comes to injectables, Garner also revealed the lesson she’s learned when it comes to makeup and hair.
“You don’t need to wear so much makeup or have such a constant blowout,” she said.
According to the Mayo Clinic, there are a variety of cosmetic injectables, including facial fillers, which are used to “smooth wrinkles and make them less noticeable,” and Botox, which also targets wrinkles by temporarily preventing a muscle from moving.
