Celebrities face constant pressure on having to look good all the time, especially when they are regularly followed by paparazzi who try their best to catch the celebs looking their worst. However, a clear, smooth complexion is what ends up saving many of them from embarrassing photos splashed across the front page, as radiant, glowing skin instantly brightens up the face. This is why some of OROGOLD’s most valuable skin lessons, which we are about to share with you, have actually come from celebrities.

Rooibos tea

Rooibos Tea
Rooibos tea has become increasingly popular, and although many may believe that it is simply the latest celebrity fad, loved by everyone from James Morrison to Cindy Crawford to Sir Anthony Hopkins, it actually has some amazing skin benefits. A tea that can work its magic in just one night, rooibos tea is extremely rich in antioxidants, meaning that it is great for reducing inflammation, acne and dullness, as well as for keeping wrinkles away. For those who have never tasted this South African caffeine-free tea, it is quite sweet, with almost a vanilla flavor. OROGOLD recommends buying the loose leaf tea and brewing yourself a fresh cup each evening for maximum benefits.

Dry Skin
Dry skin can be extremely frustrating, especially if your skin is so dry that your makeup flakes off. Makeup expert Bobbi Brown suggests layering on your moisturizers, beginning with a lightweight, hydrating cream, and following up with a thicker moisturizing balm. Since lightweight lotions are water-based, using a thicker cream on top of them will help to lock in all the moisture. To ensure that your foundation stays fresh throughout the day, even on dry skin, OROGOLD suggests dabbing on an absorbing facial oil at regular intervals.

Lighten Your Foundation
The feel of a heavy foundation on your face is never pleasant, but there is an easy way to lighten your foundation and make it look more natural. To begin with, prep your skin with your favorite moisturizer. Then, mix a couple of drops of your foundation in your hand with your moisturizer, applying it to your face with your fingertips for the sheerest coverage. Top it off with a loose powder, to keep it light and natural. If you are still finding that your foundation feels too heavy, OROGOLD recommends opting for a lightweight tinted moisturizer instead.

Fighting the signs of aging with retinol is one of the secrets to youthful skin. Retinol, which comes from vitamin A, has many anti-aging and antioxidant properties, so a product that contains retinol is a must in your skin care routine. However, as you age, your cells can take anywhere from between one to two months to completely turn over, meaning that you need to wait this long to see if the products you are using are having an effect, so be patient and use them regularly.

Since celebrities have so much access to the best skin care knowledge, it only makes sense to learn from what they know. The most important aspect to a gorgeous complexion, and one that is stressed by almost every celebrity out there, is to keep your skin as hydrated as possible, from both the inside and the out, by drinking plenty of water and making sure that your skin stays well moisturized.
