With an estimated wealth of 1 billion dollars, Rowling has done everything she could to roll back the years and look better than ever.

A friend of the 42-year-old said that the writer’s stunning new look is the result of healthy living and professional makeup artistry.

The friend also revealed that in order to shed weight and get better skin. Rowling has quit bad habits like regular fried breakfasts and black coffee.

“She says she feels [like] a million dollars. She has cut out all saturated fats, E-numbers [food additive codes] and red meat from her diet and has cut right back on drink. And she is jogging and doing yoga and Pilates at home,” the New York Daily News quoted the friend, as telling Britain’s Daily Mail.

Rowling’s recent appearances fuelled speculations that she might have gone under the knife, but leading plastic surgeons ruled out the theory, saying that the writer must have benefited from noninvasive and little laser treatments like Botox and PhotoFacial.

“Some clients spend as much as 5,000 to 10,000 dollars a year on noninvasive treatments to maintain youthful skin, which may include Botox and Restylane to eradicate wrinkles and laser treatments such as the PhotoFacial to reverse sun damage,” New York cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Paul Frank said.

Even Rowling’s friend didn’t deny the writer may have had Botox treatments, saying simply, “Who hasn’t, after all?”

The friend added that the magic factor behind the glamorous new Rowling is “good makeup, applied professionally,” and her revamped wardrobe.

According to celebrity stylist Mary Alice Stephenson, all these services don’t come cheap.

“Having a professional makeup artist come to you before an event can cost 500 to 3,000 dollars. A senior stylist may charge 6,000 to 10,000 dollars a day,” Stephenson said.

“A lot of successful women … hire someone to redesign their wardrobe, so whatever they put on for the next six months is going to work. She (Rowling) always had this kind of like hippy, Woodstock-y thing going on … She looks much more pulled together now,” she added. (ANI)
