How Warne got his new look

No, Shane Warne has not had a facelift

No, Shane Warne has not had a facelift. Or so he tweeted on Saturday. “Questions regarding facelift and Botox are absolute rubbish,” he said on the microblogging site. “I am 86 kgs, lost 7 kgs and am close to being the fittest I have ever been.”

Warne put his new look down to a change in lifestyle. “I am also eating very healthily and am flattered that people think I look younger. I have worked hard over the last five months on fitness and lifestyle – it's far from a quick fix. Fitness and being healthy is now a daily habit.”

The only unnatural part to his transformation has been his pearly whites, but turns out they’ve been pearly for over a year now and we just didn’t notice. “Yes, had teeth whitened (18 months ago),” Warne said. And of course, a good moisturiser always helps, as Warne admitted: “New Estee Lauder moisturisers for my skin have made a big difference too.”
