Celebrity Skincare Secrets
Posted on March 22 2017
What do all celebrities have in common? They get paid way too much and never wear the same thing twice. But also, they all seem to have a naturally clear complexion, strutting down the red carpet with flawless faces glowing with the light of a thousand fireflies.
Luckily, you don’t need to have a personal dermatologist on standby to achieve perfect skin like the stars. Here we spill the beans on the skincare secrets of celebs, so you can achieve that gorgeous Hollywood glow.
If you currently skip this step, it’s time to add it to your skincare routine – stat! Two of our favourite beauties, Jennifer Lawrence and Beyoncé, both know the importance of exfoliating for healthy, smooth skin. And if Queen B does it, you know you have to follow suit (except when it comes to her stage costumes).
Some of our favourite exfoliating products include:
- ASAP Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub
- Aspect Cellablation
- CosMedix Purity Detox Scrub
- Medix8 Pore Refining Scrub
You should exfoliate once or twice a week to buff away dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, vibrant face.
UV rays are the number one culprit for causing fine lines and wrinkles, so it’s no surprise Shakira and Nicole Kidman apply sunscreen every day to keep their skin looking youthful and radiant. Like you needed another push to pick up the SPF!
These products will give you the sun protection you need:
- Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 50
- Aspect Summer Traveller Kit
- Dr Eckstein Beautipharm Sun Set
- ASAP Moisturising Daily Defence SPF 50+
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands, like Khloe Kardashian, to avoid sunspots and premature signs of ageing.
Halle Berry’s everlasting beauty is envied by women all around the world, and she thanks vitamin C for her smooth complexion. It turns out even the biggest names in Hollywood are noticing the anti-ageing and hydrating properties of this humble skincare ingredient. We’ll take what she’s having!
Give your skin some vitamin C love with these products:
Consuming vitamin C in the form of fruit and vegetables such as oranges, capsicum and kiwifruit will also help to improve the appearance of your skin and hair from the inside out.
No Alcohol, Cigarettes or Caffeine
If there’s one Hollywood glamour that we’d love to swap skin with (in a non-creepy, non-Buffalo Bill way), it’s Jennifer Lopez. JLo claims her perfect skin can be credited to a life without alcohol, cigarettes or caffeine. She believes these substances “really wreck your skin as you get older”. Sorry, coffee addicts!
