Kim Kardashian said she’s not opposed to taking extreme measures to maintain her youthful appearance.
The reality star, 41, spoke to The New York Times about her latest entrepreneurial venture: a high-end skincare line called SKKN. Kardashian’s nine-step skincare routine includes ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, niacinamide, shea butter and squalene — but that’s not the only tools Kardashian would use to get glowing skin if need be.
“If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might,” she told the newspaper. “I just might.”
While The Kardashians star doesn’t feature any feces in her skincare line, some may balk at the price tag. The cost of all nine items is $630 — a price point, Kardashian told The New York Times, that is necessary to ensure quality.
“The products I was using that were comparable were way more expensive, not to compare anything,” the mom of four noted. “I tried to get the quality for the best price that we could, especially the vitamin C serum.”
That $630 price point might be a bargain compared to Kardashian’s previous routine. In 2018, she listed her full skincare regimen on her since-defunct blog. At the time, People shared that her products would cost up to $4,500. Kardashian wrote of her routine at the time, “I love to try out new beauty and skin-care products, but there are some that I'll just never give up. I've gotten into such a good routine because I use products that work together and really see results!"
In addition to speaking about her skincare routine, Kardashian also revealed to NYT how she felt about the controversy surrounding her losing weight to fit into Marilyn Monroe's gold dress at the Met Gala this year. The KKW Beauty founder shared with Vogue that she had lost 16 pounds in order to wear the dress on the red carpet after it didn't zip up at the initial fitting, which sparked accusations that she was encouraging toxic crash dieting behavior. Kardashian, however, doesn't see it that way.
"To me it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that is acceptable,’" she noted. "Even Renée Zellweger gained weight for a role. It’s all the same to me. I wasn’t saying, ‘Hey everyone, why don’t you go lose this weight in a short period of time?’”
Kardashian has recently reflected on another career milestone: appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue.
"Every time I would see magazines, especially in the ’90s when I was growing up, it's always these perfect, tall, thin women, and I just have never been that," she shared in a video for the magazine. "I vividly remember Tyra Banks on the cover, and women with curves, and I remember just thinking that was so cool, that was so cool. But I still didn't think that I would. I thought you had to be a professional model and a runway model. And it's always really young girls. I don't want to date myself, or sound old, but in my 40s? That's crazy. I never thought in a million years that I would be shooting one myself."
