It may sometimes be hard to believe, but celebrities don’t just wake up with flawless skin. Although you may not have access to a team of professional makeup artists, dedicated to making your skin look its best, there are still celebrity techniques and secrets that you can incorporate into your own life. OROGOLD brings you some great tips on how to get ‘celebrity’ skin.
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Although many celebrities may claim that their flawless skin is down to the amount of water that they drink each day, this isn’t technically true, as the water that you drink first runs through the intestines, then gets absorbed into the bloodstream and filtered out by the kidneys. Only then does it provide hydration to the cells in your body, but it never actually reaches the surface of the skin. Therefore, keeping your skin hydrated has more to do with the products that you topically apply rather than the amount of water that you drink. OROGOLD recommends using a hydrating serum each day on damp skin, locking in all the moisture. Water-based gel masks are also a great way to hydrate thirsty skin, as well as to soothe and calm it.
An all-natural, pain-free, instant facelift sounds almost too good to be true, but many celebrity skin care advisers have secret facial mask recipes that do just that. One amazing double mask that comes recommended from skin care expert to celebrities such as Kristen Bell, Vanessa Hudgens and Lindsay Lohan, makes use of just four simple ingredients that you are likely to already have in your kitchen. Separate an egg, mixing together the yolk with an eighth of a teaspoon of honey and a drop of olive oil. Apply this to your cleansed face, relaxing your mind while it dries. Once dry, wait five minutes before removing, revealing your exfoliated and nourished skin below. Next, mix the egg white with a few drops of lemon before applying to your face. Once the mask is completely dry, rinse it off and follow up with your favorite serum. While the first mask nourishes and moisturizes your face, the second mask brightens and tightens the skin.
A Golden Tan
According to celebrity makeup artist to stars such as Paris Hilton and Heather Locklear, the key to flawless celebrity skin begins with a healthy dose of color. OROGOLD would never recommend using a tanning bed, and spray tanning booths can also often be quite uncomfortable. Instead, try a self-tanner, such as the Victoria’s Secret range, as these will usually last on your skin for up to 24 hours. Keep in mind that protecting your skin from the sun is also essential, especially if you want ‘celebrity’ skin. After all, you rarely see celebrities with tan lines or peeling sunburns, so make sure that you don’t have any either.
No matter how famous you may be, skin is skin, and there is often nothing you can do to stop a pimple from appearing, or prevent a random breakout from occurring. The difference with celebrities is that many of them make a living from their face, so they truly understand the importance of taking care of their skin. In order to have ‘celebrity’ skin, you must also begin to treat your skin as it is very valuable, giving it all of the tender loving care that it requires and making sure that your skin care routine is perfectly suited to your skin type.
