That looks painful! Cyndi Lauper shows off red, sore-looking skin as she goes make-up free at airport

By Georgina Littlejohn

Girls just wanna have cosmetic surgery? Cyndi Lauper showed off a very red and patchy face - suggesting she'd had a chemical peel - as she flew out of Los Angeles yesterday

Many women approaching their 60s will try some sort of cosmetic procedure in an attempt to turn back the years.

And it seems that Cyndi Lauper could be no exception.

The 57-year-old singer was snapped at an airport yesterday with a bright red face and sore-looking skin.

She looked as though she'd either had a very nasty reaction to her make-up or she was suffering the after-effects of too much sun.

Some even suggested that the pale-faced veteran pop star has succumbed to vanity and had a chemical peel, which can result in some irritation, redness and peeling skin on the face for a few days afterwards.

But her publicist was soon on hand to clear the matter up and explained that Ms Lauper has in fact had 'a bad reaction to a spa treatment '.

Cyndi was snapped arriving at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday - trying to hard her face - presumably jetting off home to New York.

And her red face was in sharp contrast to the smooth and pale complexion she showed off four days earlier at a ceremony in her honour in her native New York.

She looked twenty years younger as she posed for pictures after a bus was dedicated to her and her 30-year-career.

She unveiled her own Gray Line New York double-decker bus decorated with her likeness on the front of the vehicle last Thursday.

Gray Line says the Ride of Fame celebrates the endeavors of exemplary New Yorkers, which are 'public figures who have represented New York positively in all of his or her endeavors and has proven why New York is the best city in the United States'.

Past Ride of Fame honorees include Donald Trump, Whoopi Goldberg and Richard Dreyfuss.

The launch took place at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art last Thursday right by the spot where she did the line-up for her video for one of her best-known songs Girls Just Want to Have Fun.

But a couple of days later, she was in Los Angeles with her red face, suggesting that she had flown to the Californian city for the procedure.

As she unveiled her bus, she told fans and the waiting press that she hired a double decker bus for her marriage to actor David Thornton in 1991.

And she spoke about young pop star Lady Gaga, who she collaborated with for an advertising campaign for make-up giants MAC.

Cyndi, who has been nominated for her 14th Grammy this year, said: 'I think she’s done a lot of great stuff and I wish her a lot of luck. I think the new artists; the work hard. It’s the same like everybody.

I’m glad to see that people care and are passionate about their work and she combines art and music. I always like that.'
