Lady Gaga loves using facelift tape

Lady Gaga uses facelift tape "every day" to look younger.

The 28-year-old singer has admitted she uses the tape to pull the skin around her cheekbones and neck tight in an effort to look more youthful and revealed it is part of her morning ritual.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When I have my wig cap on and I'm taping my face, it's a sort of meditation for me. Every day, it starts the same way. It's like a mantra.

"I wash my face, I pin my hair back and put on a wig cap and I ask, 'How am I going to form my eyes today with this tape? How will I pull back my neck with tape?' "

The 'Poker Face' star insisted despite not being a natural look, it can still be "honest" and authentic.

She said: "Looking artificial can be honest. Being glamorous can come from a place of authenticity and a place of love."

However, plastic surgeon Jeya Prakash has warned the tape could lead to permanent damage.

He explained: "By taping your face tight, you are reducing the circulation which means there are less nutrients getting to the skin, so abnormal collagen will be produced.

"This is like internal scarring as different types of cells form the skin - like with a scar. In the long term, it will speed up the ageing process."
