When you’re in the public eye, you need skin care and beauty strategies that get results. By working with the best dermatologists and makeup artists, celebrities learn how to look great for every camera pointing their way. Read these six tips to see how they do it.
1. Use cleansing towelettes to remove makeup at night.
“I need a makeup wipe at all times,” Kim Kardashian explained to allure. “That’s the only way I take my makeup off.”
A gentle cleansing towelette will remove dirt, bacteria, and damaging free radicals before you fall sleep.
2. Choose a cleanser that doesn’t dry out your skin.
Jessica Simpson, who has her own skin care line called BeautyMint, says she prefers a product that cleanses while it hydrates at the same time.
“My baby really loves my water and is taking all of it,” said the pregnant singer to Stylelist “I have to use a lot of moisturizer and I thought that it could break my skin out but I now know that it does more things than hydrate.”
3. Exfoliate with facials and microdermabrasion
Gisele Bundchen uses a combination of facials and microdermabrasion to keep her skin looking fresh, according to Harper’s Bazaar, with a glycolic peel, green tea mask and collagen mask.
4. Look awake even when you’re tired.
“Sometimes I put a little gold eye shadow in the inner corners of my eyes” says Beyonce Knowles to Elle. “It’s more subtle than white, but it still really makes you look more awake.”
5. Don’t sunbathe. Use a bronzer or self tanner instead.
Nicole Kidman once had skin cancer, so she knows to protect her fair skin from the sun. “I wear a lot of sunscreen, she tells marie claire, “and I never go in the sun.”
Both J-Lo and Beyonce say they use self tanners to get a healthy looking glow. While Beyonce says she uses layers of bronzers when appearing in public, J-Lo says that avoiding sun damage while using bronzers and self-tanners, has “saved her skin” over the years.
6. A simple skin care routine is usually best.
A good routine starts with the basics. Before you look at high end moisturizers and eye cream, you need to perfect the fundamental steps of your basic skin care routine.
Cleansing is a must, and one of the best new ways to cleanse is the Clarisonic brush and opal. Gwyneth Paltrow revealed in her weekly email newsletter that both of these products are part of her beauty regimen. She’s even “obsessed with them,” reports marie claire UK.
