I'm not sure what kind of products Mary uses on her hair, but I do think she colors it. Sometimes it looks very very dark; other times it looks as if she has a red tint to it. If anyone knows what she uses please tell us.

I think it's fairly obvious that she colours it, like most Royal and non-Royal ladies.

Some of the red tints she has had in the past look henna based to me.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that loves how Mary looks and takes care of herself (fashion aside).

I've always thought she glows. I agree with all of you: her skin looks simply amazing.
I'm sure that she takes advantage of all the new -and old- treatments, as many of you mentioned, but she also seems to be naturally lucky on that department.

Microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing isn't as bad, and I suspect Mary may have had microdermabrasion to fix her sun damaged skin. In earlier photos, specifically during the engagement press conference, she had noticable Hyperpigmentation. A couple of treatments is all it takes to rid of HP, and as we have all seen on the day of her wedding her skin was amazing. Completely opposite of what it looked like back in October 2003. Now, I have heard others claim that her skin magically changed, and thus the hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and so forth, disappeared thanks to Denmark's weather. Nice theory, but scientifically and logically impossible. One's skin doesn't change overnight like that without the help of Dr. Skin Rejuvenation.

As I said, before, Mary obviously takes good care of her skin, through I imagine, a time consuming routine. Lots of sunscreen, eye cream, facials, day cream, night cream, healthy eating, water, etc., etc. Anyone can achieve that "amazing" skin look, but only if one puts in the effort, then one will succeed.


Thank you for saying that. It ain't magic, it's called money and work!

It was once quoted in a magazine saying she uses Estee lauder products. But no one can comfirm this.

I am sure she bleaches her teeth. You can get a laser bleaching done in the dentists. You can also get custom bleeching trays made by a dentist and then have a stronger bleach treatment from them. I've done both and been happy with the results. It does cost a bit. You can also get bleaching strips from the drugstore. My mother has had good results with crest bleach strips. And they are very inexpensive. Mary most likely does not use/eat things that are very staining to her teeth either. Unlike Queen Margarethe who smokes and it shows!

Yes, time and money play a big part. No arguement, but you can also do a lot with less money too. The key is consistancy! And if so mething does not work after two weeks or you don't see improvement with two weeks move on. It's also all around too. One cream isn't going to do it.

As far as getting a facial. Ask around. Many persons will give a recommendation if they have one. And most importantly, if something burns and or hurts tell them to stop immediately!! Also, don't get mircodermabrasion etc first off. Just get a regular facial, no peels etc. If you like their work you can always add more procedure if they are needed.

I never believed a facial could do a lot until I had one. Wow! Also, sometimes you have a few more breakouts right after a facial as your skin is bringing all that junk out of you. But they texture and feel you see an immedi9ate improvement. I cannot affored to get facials that often. It also depends on what you need done too. Once my skin routine at home got good. I found myself getting facials less often as I did not need them. I try to get them 2-3 times a year.

I've tried it all, from expensive creams to dematologist etc. The best advice I got was from a French facialist. Drink lots of water, moisturize even if you have blemishes, and don't use water to cleanse your face.

You know what I would love to have of Mary's? I know this will sound weird, but I would love to have a butt like hers! My rear end has the celliute problem. She doesn't seem to have it or at least not too much. So jealous!!!

It doesn't sound weird at all (though I will say it's too flat, imo.), I mean look at JLO. There was a time when all the ladies with pancake behinds flocked to Dr.Gluteus Maximus for rear end implants.

I thinK Mary has a gorgeous neck and shoulder line. Very feminine and as for her upper back? The mere sight of it...

when you talk you have facials every 2 weeks, what do you mean, you use a mask at home or you go to a place to have it done every 2 weeks? I ask becasue I am very interested in having some things done to improve my skin just to get informed.
going back to topic Mary must have the will to do all things becasue she probably wants to take care of her skin , it is not the same with Maxima that I think she does not take care like Mary!

I'm not sure who it is you're asking, ashelen, but I have two facials twice a week and I get them done professionally. I pay around AUD $60 for each consultation. I, personally, don't mind paying more but it all comes down to what you're able to afford or willing to spend. There are many alternatives which don't cost as much and are no doubt quite good. I guess it's about hunting around and finding what's best for you're skin.

If you would prefer to do it yourself then I guess trial and error, but you can help you're complexion by drinking good amounts of water, moisturising (I use a good quality, oil free sunscreen) and having a well balanced diet.

Don't be disheartened though, as there's always something. Sometimes it takes time and finding the best solution isn't always easy, but if you persist then the outcome should be good...

She looks great! Love her smile. And, yes, stress is a MAJOR factor in ageing someone. So, just imagine the stress of leading a public life, always on the go, two children, heavy make-up (when needed), sun damage...so many things out there now days that affect our skin. Though she still looks beautiful, you can tell she's aged a little if you compare pictures from before she married till now. But, who doesn't change physically in the course of a few years? We all do. It's human nature. Cheers!

I totally agree with you, RachelD! I think that Mary is just a stunning woman and is ageing well, if you want to call it 'ageing'. I almost prefer maturing.... Cheers back!

Mary looks younger than most women her age. And she definately looks better. I love the blouse. I don't agree it looks anything like American design or has anything to do with the election. It's by a Danish designer and a nice blouse. Stars are not exclusively American oriented. That blue is a fantastic color on her.

I respectfully disagree with you. When you look at some close ups of Mary, you can see that she has an enormous amount of wrinkles for a 36 year old and she really doesn't look good without her layers of pancake. The same goes for Maxima, that's a complete trainwreck without make up on.

She doesn't wear anything near what could bescribed as "layers of pancake". That's an exaggeration if ever there was one, and as far as I know, a pancake is something you eat, not wear...lol.

I agree with you about that, esp about Maxima, who seems at times not to care... I think Mary's signs of ageing are also a result of tryng too hard to be the perfect princess/wife and mother. Personally I am 35, have 3 kids, a career and I don't have the creases she has. I don't have the stress she has, but also not the means to keep up my looks and figure. i personally think the hairstyle she has in those pics is very aging.

I don't think Mary has "wrinkles" per say. Her eyes crinkle at the corners because that's just her facial structure. They always did that. She wears more makeup that I like, but far from what I would call "pancake".

We should all enjoy our crown princesses now while we can; they are passing 35 and approaching 40, and don't have a lot of "young" years left. Look at how Alexandra changed at 40.
