Who hasn’t flipped through Vogue at one time or another wishing that they had the skin of the celebrities on the pages? Of course we have! We all have. It’s only natural, right? And, of course, before you beat me to the punch, I know that a lot of that flawless skin is just some fancy Photoshop work.
Still, that doesn’t mean that celebrities don’t have access to some skin care secrets that you and I don’t. Because it’s true. Remember, Hollywood is an industry. Those people are paid to look a certain way. Because of this, they pay people – the very best people – to help them look their absolute best.
So, over the years, celebrities have amassed tons of skin care secrets that the public may not know about. They’re not widely known mostly because the average person just doesn’t need to go to quite the extent that, say, an actress might, since her livelihood may depend on it.
But there is some good news as well. Ready? Here it is: this stuff is simple! And really, that’s part of the secret. This stuff isn’t rocket surgery. And a lot of these skin care treatments you may be able to do just with stuff you have around the house already (or with skin care creams you’re already using).
In my work as a celebrity makeup artist I got to talk to a bunch of folks about what actually makes the difference in skin. And it’s not too complicated. So I wanted to take a few moments to today to pass along a few of these tips, so you can put them into play. So check them out!
- Watch what you eat. This is something that a lot of people ignore, but it’s one of the best things you can do for your complexion. Most celebs have a licensed nutritionist at their disposal, and that nutritionist is usually formulating a diet to specifically help produce that glowing hair and skin. So, without having to hire your own nutritionist, there are a few things you can do on your own. Namely, you want to stay away from processed food and sugar. You also want to stay away from grains. Why? These foods cause inflammation, and that’s what pimples are!
- Look into radio wave treatment for sagging skin. This is one of those things that sounds weird but really kind of works. Radio wave treatments have been around for a long time, but they have recently made their way into home bathrooms in the form of gadgets like the Dermawand. Radio waves have been proven to tighten and tone skin, and now you can do it at home instead of purchasing expensive treatments from a dermatologist.
- Buy a natural moisturizer. This is especially true if you are an aging person and are struggling with related blemishes, like dark spots. Moisturizing is one of the best things you can do for your skin at any point in your life, but it’s especially true as you age. If you can’t find a good natural moisturizer you can afford, just use coconut oil!
