Holy Cowell! New Biography Reveals Simon Cowell’s Age-Defying Secrets


Music producer Simon Cowell will turn fifty-three this year, yet by all appearances he isn’t a minute over forty. So how does the British recording mogul keep his appearance so fresh? The short answer: By spending a significant portion of his nearly $300 million fortune on pampering himself. Recent biography, “Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell” by Tom Bower, reveals Cowell’s personal cornucopia of anti-ageing treatments ranging from the lavish to the downright outlandish.


Simon Cowell reportedly gets Botox injections administered by famed doctor Jean-Louis Sebagh twice a year. The term “Botox” is an abbreviation of botulinum toxin, the name of the botulism-carrying protein used by cosmetic specialists to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is injected into the area of the wrinkle where it blocks the neurotransmitters responsible for contracting muscles, thus giving the patient a smoother appearance. Simon Cowell has mentioned his breezy attitude toward Botox use with close friends, stating, “It simply works. You do it twice a year. Who cares?”

Fresh Fruit

Cowell loves fresh fruit. According to the biography, he’ll go so far as to ship himself exotic fruits via air freight, which he then uses to prepare his twice daily smoothies. While it certainly is extravagant behavior, most anti-ageing specialists would encourage the star’s fruit addiction. Fruit is a great source of anti-oxidants, vitamin C, carotenoids, calcium, folic acid, and fiber, all important nutrients for healthy skin and organs.


According to Bower’s book Simon Cowell is a big fan of routine colonics. Colonic irrigation is a method of gently flushing toxins and debris from the intestines with warm water. Many claim the procedure aids in metabolic and immune system function, though there is only anecdotal evidence to support such claims. One such supportive anecdote comes directly from the biography where Simon himself remarks, “it’s so cleansing – and it makes my eyes shine brighter.”

Intravenous Vitamins

When it comes to revitalizing vitamins and hydration, Simon Cowell likes to cut out the middle man. According to Bower’s biography, every Saturday afternoon Cowell’s health specialists hook him up to an intravenous drip in his residence. The drip contains a potent mix of pure B and C vitamins. Nutritionists say that B vitamins help convert food to energy, aid in forming red blood cells, and give an energizing boost to the mind and body. Similarly, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, essential to the immune system function, and may aid in the production of collagen which speeds the body’s repair of damaged tissue.

The biography details plenty more bizarre quirks of Cowell’s health and appearance regimen, including frequent massages, “manscaping,” dyeing his hair, spending thousands on flowers each week, and insisting that black toilet paper is supplied wherever he, um, goes. But you don’t have to be a multi-millionaire to design your own rejuvenation regimen. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our certified cosmetic clinics in your area.
