Amy Childs dumps Botox and fillers
Amy Childs has dumped Botox and fillers after admitting she went overboard with the look and now says the appearance of her lips is just down to "pouting and clever contouring"
Amy Childs has vowed to avoid Botox and fillers.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' beauty therapist - who claims the current appearance of her lips is now only down to pouting and clever contouring - has ditched surgery because the taunts online about her unnatural look have been so upsetting.
Speaking to New! Magazine, she said: "People say awful things online and I'd be lying if I said it didn't hurt.
"But it's my own fault, I know my lips have looked bad so I just have to take it. I do look back at the pictures and think I look like a freak. I went overboard and looked like Pete Burns at one point."
The 24-year-old beauty addict made the change after facing serious problems due to a botched lip filler job which left her needing corrective surgery.
She explained: "I had to have corrective surgery as one side was bigger than the other, more fool me for having my lips done in the first place.
"I've learned my lesson, I cried when I had it taken out as it hurt so much - I'm 24 years old, hun, and I think, 'why did I do that?'"
And Amy said she is now happy to have adopted a new toned-down look, and claims she has ditched the fake tan and eyelashes for good.
She added: "Back then I thought the more make-up the better, but that's not the case any more. It's fashionable to wear less make-up and fake tan now - I'm older and wiser."
