Celebrity Beauty: Courteney Cox Arquette

Last week, Courteney Cox Arquette made headlines – the likes of which she hasn’t since she and her friends inked that ground-breaking $1 million per episode deal a bunch of years back.
The excitment this time? Nearly as mind-boggling…
42 year-old Ce-Ce (as her pals call her) is bummed about getting old.
Now there’s a news flash.
“I have issues with getting older” she spills in this month’s Marie Claire cover story. “It’s hard not being the young one anymore.”
Forget the fact that she looks sensational, has two movies opening in August, is producing/starring in a new TV show this fall and that the article lauds her many other talents (decorating, investing, being mommy and wife among them) Court confides; “There are huge changes in my body and my face and I obsess over them.”
Enough to surgically alter them?
In 2004, she told Harper’s Bazaar that “"A lot of people are overdoing Botox, but I think everything in moderation is fine. If it looks natural and it makes you feel better, do it." And, she echoed the sentiment in the current story, saying that she “believes in the judicious use of plastic surgery.”
The hitch? Her husband, David Arquette, who’s 7 years younger, has a huge problem with it. Judiciously deployed or not.
Regardless of whether she’s stepping out on Dave’s ideals, the Alabama native who, as those of us who remember Adam Curry and Martha Quinn know, got her big break doing the white-girl shuffle onstage in Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” video, has long been a proponent of Kinerase skin products – a line for which she became the official spokes-chick last year.
“Kinerase is a simple and effective skin care regimen that keeps my skin looking healthy and youthful," she says. "Like every woman trying to juggle family and career, I no longer have the time or patience for time-consuming beauty routines. Kinerase is gentle but effectively maintains younger-looking skin. I am proud and excited to represent a product that I have personally enjoyed and recommended to my friends and family."
The key ingredient in Kinerase, from what I can gather, is Kinetin, a nature-identical plant growth factor that allows the skin to retain more moisture, making the skin feel firmer and healthier, improving the skin's overall appearance.
OK. What else does the 5’5” former model, who plays tennis at David Spade’s house regularly (with, we hope, Heather Locklear. Or, at least, within eyeshot of a walk-of-shame-ing Heather Locklear) employ to keep a glint in her eye and a spring in her well-heeled step?
- Shu Uemura eyelash curler
- Vincent Longo The Curl mascara
- Cle de Peau concealer
- Aveda and Kerastase shampoos
Oh, and her favorite indulgence? “A massage by Celsa Alves at my house.”
Yep. Mine too.
