Mischa, what happened?
I recently started re-watching The O.C. (the series ended in 2007) and I was instantly struck by how jaw-droppingly gorgeous Mischa Barton was.
Maybe I was too young back in the early 2000’s to truly appreciate her beauty, but seeing her in her heyday has left me flabbergasted. I mean, her face! It was so youthful, so vibrant, so darn radiant. Everytime she showed up on the screen, she actually glowed. And it was the same for red carpet events - beautiful hair, beautiful dress, beautiful skin. She was literally the picture of that natural kind of beauty that women would sacrifice the right arm, left leg, and probably both ears for.
And now? The Mischa of today…well she’s left me flabbergasted for other reasons. Don’t get me wrong, I think Mischa is still very beautiful, but she seems to be lacking that…’joie de vivre’ that she once had. Her skin is lack-lustre and dull, her face sunken and looking a bit haggard, and although Mischa’s in her late 20s, she looks like she could easily be 10 years older.
I get how she got to this place. In your late teens and 20s, you pretty much think you’re invincible – you think you can do what you want and act how you want without any consequences. Remember when she got arrested for drugs and drink-driving in 2007? Or that she was snapped often partying hard with wild child Lindsay Lohan? But looking at her now is enough to see what drinking, smoking, partying, and not caring for yourself can lead to.
So no matter what your age, I implore you – look after yourself, look after your skin. Drink lots of water, always apply sunscreen, wash and moisturise your face twice a day. And hey, if you can cut down on drinking, smoking, and any other activity that brings toxins into your body, then your skin will only thank you for it.
Do you think that Mischa's drinking and partying ways have been detrimental to her looks? Do you think she's lost her youthful radiance?
