Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague Reveals New Natural Look After Ditching Fillers

Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has warned that society needs to stop "normalising" fillers as she debuted her new natural look in a magazine shoot.

The reality star, 22, appeared as Cosmopolitan UK's cover star, this week, in pared back makeup and a sophisticated white corset and jeans.

Molly-Mae - who starred on the fifth season of the ITV dating show - now boasts a fresher faced look, having completely dissolved her facial fillers.

But she told the publication that there was a time when the extent of the changes she'd made meant she hardly recognised herself.

"I was doing a club appearance and took a selfie," she said. "I remember staring at it and thinking, 'I don't know what I've done to my face.'

"I went from looking like a teenager to someone on Botched. I've never thought of myself as insecure, but I must have been to do that."

Speaking about the damage that fillers can do when it comes to beauty standards, Molly-Mae added: "We need to stop normalising filler, with things like 'Kylie Jenner [surgery] packages'.

"I was 17 when I first got my lips done, and it scares me to think that if I have a daughter in 10 years' time, what it might be like for her."

The reality star, who is dating fellow 2019 cast-member Tommy Fury, says she also forgets how young some of her followers are, acknowledging that setting a good example to them is so important.

Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers) are essentially cosmetic substances (often including hyaluronic acid) which are injected into areas of the face, to remove wrinkles or fill creases or lines.

They typically last between six and 18 months.

Molly-Mae's comments come not long after a law recently passed which makes it illegal for children and teens to get botox or fillers.

The Act, passed in Parliament in April, is due to come into effect in autumn and is set to outlaw providing the injectables to anyone under the age of 18, for cosmetic reasons.

The move is expected to stop as many as 41,000 botox injections from being handed out to under 18s every year.

It will also mean that a doctor, healthcare professional or registered medical practitioner must be the one to administer the injectables to children if they are needed medically.
