While promoting her new CoverGirl Katy Kat Gloss collection in an interview with Refinery29, the 33-year-old singer opens up about getting blemish-free skin, why she chopped her locks and whether she's ever gone under the knife.
"For the record, I haven't had any [plastic surgery]," she reveals. "I've done lasers and got [filler] injections under my eyes for the hollowing -- which I'd recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles -- but all of my assets are real. People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn't really matter."
"We're getting away from that negative stigma about physical alterations," she continues. "Of course, always be your authentic self, but if someone wants a nose job that makes them feel better, and they love their profile more because of it, it's like 'Go ahead!' Do whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Stay in therapy, but get it, girl."
Being in the spotlight for so many years, Perry has been both praised and slammed for her beauty looks. She admits that she suffered from horrible acne when she was just getting her start as an artist, but swears that Proactiv treated the skin condition.
"I used to have really, really bad skin in my early 20s when things were starting to pop off, so it was stress-related and my body was changing from coming out of the teenage years," she recalls. "I remember I was doing laser treatments, trying different ointments, going to very expensive facialists, and nothing worked. Someone recommended I try the Proactiv cleanser and I thought, 'No way, no how will that fix anything.' And I’ve been using it for 10 years and it's been incredible. I don't break out because of that."
In addition to the skincare system, Perry also credits healthy eating for her blemish-free glow.
"I love food, and sometimes if I'm in a bad mood, all I'll want is the classic ice cream from McDonalds that tastes the same no matter what country you're in," she confesses. "But that quick dopamine hit that makes you feel good for one second turns on you in the long run. In the past year, I've eaten better than I have ever eaten -- less fast food, less sugar -- and the sustainability of my body is so much better. My face just glows."
Although she's transformed her look several times over the last decade, Perry debuted her most dramatic change -- a refreshing pixie cut -- last March. She cut it even shorter one month later, and is still rocking the edgy chic 'do.
"Cutting my hair meant I didn't have to hide behind it," she says. "My face really stands out [now], and I actually feel a lot prettier with my short hair. I've really gotten to know my face better."
