Insiders think it may be because she’ll have to give up her favorite drug.
Um, that would be nicotine. Although The Dish Rag thinks that three months without Dilaudid might also be a good idea. What kind of pain can a young girl with a history of alcohol abuse be in to require a prescription for an addictive opiate pain killer?
Anyway, there’s no question that Lindsay’s Hollywood Bad Girl lifestyle has aged her beyond her 24 years. She’s gone from looking like a happy freckle-faced child star to a fresh-faced ingenue and promising actress to a washed-up, rode-hard party girl.
That’s why we’re hoping that some of the L.A. County Jail’s rules might help Lindsay’s looks and her health.
Rule No. 1: No smoking. Quitting her nicotine habit will increase her body’s oxygen
levels and make her broken capillaries, dry, prematurely wrinkled and
blotchy skin improve. And that’s not even counting what it will do for
her black-tarred, Gulf Oil spill lungs.
No. 2: Lose the hair
extensions. We have no idea why this is a rule. Can you harm yourself
or others with hair extensions? Who knows? But removing them for 90
days (or however long she ends up serving) will be necessary, and it’s bound to help the health of Lindsay’s
battered, bleached and thinning locks. The hair on her forehead may even
have a chance to grow back.
No. 3: No makeup allowed.
Not even a judge-insulting manicure. Apparently, being stripped of the trappings of vanity is necessary for
rehabilitation while incarcerated. And it certainly eliminates
paparazzi-seeking and attention-getting behavior. No question that no
makeup will help get Lindsay’s complexion back to its fresh and
healthy glow — a la the 2004 photo above left.
No. 4: Three healthy meals
a day and plenty of water will also help Lindsay’s looks. We have no
idea what prison food is like, but it’s gotta be worlds better than the
nutrient-free fast food LIndsay usually grabs, if she eats
regularly at all. Probably not a lot of her fave special herbal, sugar- and caffeine-loaded energy drink on the jail menu. Water will
help flush out her system from the poison of her toxic lifestyle. And we’re not even gonna mention what eliminating any dehydrating alcohol will do for her skin.
meals could balance out her blood sugar; spikes and crashes in blood sugar can cause headaches and
mood swings. We’re pretty sure that with her demanding night life,
breakfast is not her fave meal. She probably thinks that meal is a
No. 5: No sharp instruments allowed. This may keep
her from cutting herself and leaving nasty scars like the ones we saw
on her arm on her arrival to court last week.
While some LiLo
watchers feel that jail — and the 90 days of rehab she’ll be required to undergo once she gets out — will save Lindsay’s life, we’re not so sure.
Only time will tell on that score. But we feel very certain that 90
days in jail will reverse much of the past few years of damage and improve Lindsay’s looks. And hopefully, it will improve her outlook
