Plastic surgery while pregnant? No way, says Kim

LOS ANGELES: Reality TV star Kim Kardashian says she is not resorting to plastic surgery to look her best while she is pregnant.
The 34-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, who is expecting a second child with husband Kanye West, took to Instagram and said she she won’t risk her child’s health by doing botox, reported People Magazine.
“No, I don’t do fillers or botox when pregnant like some tabloids are reporting, you would have to be really sick to endanger your child like that,” she wrote.
Kardashian said while pregnancy brings changes in the body, the challenge is to adjust accordingly.
“Anyone who has been pregnant or gained weight knows your face totally changes! My nose gets bigger, cheeks fuller and my lips swell up. The challenge is trying to adjust the make up to make me feel normal and we will share our tricks on KimKardashianWest.com.”
Kardashian, who is four months pregnant, revealed last month she is expecting a little brother for her two-year-old daughter, North.

Indian man wears gold face mask to ward off coronavirus

  • The precious metal covering weighs 60 grams (two ounces) and took craftsmen eight days to make

PUNE: An Indian man said he paid about $4,000 for a bespoke gold face mask to protect him from the coronavirus raging in the country.
The precious metal covering weighs 60 grams (two ounces) and took craftsmen eight days to make, said businessman Shankar Kurhade, from the western city of Pune.
“It is a thin mask and has tiny pores that is helping me to breathe,” Shankar told AFP.
“I am not sure if it will be effective to protect me from a coronavirus infection but I am taking other precautions,” he added.
When going out, the 49-year-old said he likes to adorn himself with gold jewelry weighing a kilogramme, including a bracelet, necklace and rings on each finger of his right hand.
Kurhade — whose company makes industrial sheds — said he got the idea for the gold face mask after seeing a media report about a man wearing one made from silver.
“People are asking me for selfies,” he said.
“They are awestruck when they see me wearing the gold mask in markets.”
India has made face masks mandatory in public places in a bid to control the spread of the virus in the country, which has around 650,000 confirmed cases and more than 18,600 fatalities.
