'Beautiful' singer Christina Aguilera has opened up about having anti-wrinkle injections, but she's insisted she doesn't want a 'frozen face'.
Fans of Aguilera have seen her grow and change over the years since she first stepped into the spotlight in her hometown of Staten Island, New York, at just six years old, before going on to become one of the most iconic singers of the early noughties.
Now 42, Aguilera has learned to embrace her changing appearance as well as her womanhood and insisted ageing is not a 'negative'.
Saying this kind of thinking is a 'super old-school approach', Aguilera told People: "I've seen myself go through different stages of my life and complain about certain things. As I've gotten older, I look back, and I'm like, 'God, every stage is a new era.'
"I'm really into feeling more self-assured as you get older. That's the thing to truly embrace. It's harmful when [ageing] becomes an obsession."
The star expressed her belief that 'everybody has a different outlook with how they want to age', saying it's a 'very personal conversation', and with that in mind she's been candid about her decision to become a brand partner with anti-wrinkle injection Xeomin, which is used to improve the look of frown lines.
Working with the brand on its 'Beauty on Your Terms' campaign, Aguilera explained: "I'm always interested in finding new products that excite me and make me feel my best. Xeomin felt like the safest way to go because it doesn't have any extra ingredients. It's reassurance that no matter how tired I may be, I have back-up."
Aguilera went on to praise the injection for giving her a more 'natural look', saying: "We like expression, especially in my line of work. I don't want to have a frozen face. Whether it's being on-camera or performing onstage, I have to stay authentic to my emotion."
Having performed for the majority of her life, the singer explained that being in the spotlight 'is an added element that can complicate your view of yourself'.
"People are going to have an opinion no matter what you do, no matter what you wear," she said.
However, acknowledging that 'things are going to change as you grow older', Aguilera insisted artistry 'always comes first'.
As part of her collaboration, Aguilera advertised Xeomin on social media where she praised the brand for allowing her to 'be able to show up looking [her] best'.
