Most celebrities have enviable skin that seems to radiate from within. They may appear to be natural beauties, but virtually all celebrities have found personal skin care routines that they use religiously. Here’s a look at how some of your favorite celebrities keep their skin looking fresh and healthy.
1. Sunblock is a Part of Every Morning Routine
Superstars with amazing skin have one thing in common: they all say that sunscreen is an essential part of their morning skincare routine. And it’s not just the porcelain-skinned beauties that lather on sunblock. Shakira says she starts each day by applying baby sunscreen, which is usually a potent high-SPF formula.
2. Emphasis is Put on Eyes at Night
The eyes age faster than other parts of the face because the skin around them is much thinner. This makes the thin skin more susceptible to dryness and loss of elasticity. Another issue is that eyes are very active. Every time we make a facial expression, the area around the eyes flexes and creases, which causes dynamic wrinkles.
Ageless Jennifer Aniston says that one thing she always does before bed is moisturize around the eyes. One of the latest trends is to use an Eye Corrector Serum rather than a heavy moisturizer. This provides the benefit of a dose of moisture along with antioxidants that can help increase firmness and diminish dark circles.
3. Mary Louis Parker Swears by Serum
It is hard to believe that Mary Louise Parker will soon be 52 years old. Her skin is amazingly wrinkle-free despite her age. That has many people wondering what her secret is and how they can use it.
Ms. Parker insists that her beautiful epidermis isn’t the result of plastic surgery. She says it’s a combination of good genetics and using a serum nightly. Products like TrueScience Eye Corrector Serum are essentially lightweight moisturizers that are designed to deliver ingredients deeper into the skin. Serums also tend to have a higher concentration of active ingredients.
4. Celebrities of All Ages Are Lining Up for Cosmetic Acupuncture
Have you ever wondered how Madonna and Diane Lane maintain their youthful complexions? Both women have attributed regular cosmetic acupuncture sessions with helping them solve skin problems. But younger celebrities are also needling their skin. Prince William and Gwyneth Paltrow also reportedly have made cosmetic acupuncture part of their regular skin routine.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a procedure in which very fine needles are placed in the skin at strategic points. The needles are believed to increase circulation and aid in healing, which helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging.
5. Two-Step Exfoliation
Forever young Naomi Campbell may have amazing genetics, but she has another skin secret up her sleeve: she regularly gets a two-step exfoliation from her facialist. Ms. Campbell opts for a combination of a glycolic peel followed by microdermabrasion. The two-step process helps to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal the glowing, fresh skin underneath.
Anna Paquin also follows the two-step exfoliation routine. Her facialist uses a chemical peel along with a scrub for physical exfoliation.
6. Deep Clean Daily
Healthy skin requires daily cleaning. Without it, your pores will clog causing blemishes. Regular cleaning is also needed to maintain the skin’s pH balance.
You’ll need a gentle cleanser to clean the skin without irritating it, but you can go one step further for radiant skin. Katherine Heigl, Emmy Rossum, and Sophia Bush are among the many celebs that now use a device to get an even deeper clean. These devices have a rotating brush head that exfoliates while it cleans. Skin experts recommend that users start slowly, only using these devices a few times a week to begin with and only on the lowest setting.
7. Get Your Vitamins
Halle Berry is a famously beautiful woman that appears to have found the fountain of youth. And that fountain is full of Vitamin C. Ms. Berry says that she applies Vitamin C directly on her skin every night. Antioxidants, like Vitamin C, help the skin repair itself and protect against free radicals. It’s also important to get enough vitamins in your diet to help protect skin from the inside out.
Every celebrity has their own personalized skin care routine because we all have unique skin needs. But no matter what type of skin you have, the seven skin care tricks above can help you achieve a red carpet glow.
