Celebrities might look glamorous on the red carpet and on the silver screen, but they are not exempted from having skin problems. With all the glamming up, flying around, and the lack of rest or sleep that they go through, they’re bound to have a few skin problems here and there.
5 Celebrity Skin Care Secrets We Can Do Ourselves
Of course, a specialist to the stars can take care of a celebs skin problem anytime, but most celebs actually have celebrity skincare secrets up their sleeves that us common folk can do on our own.
1. Olive Oil
The Amazing Spiderman actress, Emma Stone, told Style Caster that she has a big bottle of olive oil on her sink. She uses it on her face. She continued by saying that she’s allergic to most things so she’s limited when it comes to the products she uses on her skin.
How to Use Olive Oil Yourself
You can use it similarly to how Emma Stone uses it, or you can apply it to your hair as a moisturising treatment. You’re going to need a shower cap if you want to use it on your hair. Apply a good amount of olive oil on clean hair, wear a shower cap over it, leave it on for about an hour and then rinse.
Aquaphor is a healing ointment that does wonders for dry skin. A lot of celebs have recommended using this product, including Dr. Oz, but if you’re part of the Bey Hive, you’d want to know that The Queen Bey herself uses Aquaphor before she goes to bed. She smothers her face with the healing balm, looking really greasy but “It’s not all glamour all the time,” she tells Elle.
How to Use Aquaphor Yourself
You can use it on your hands and lips to lock in that much-needed moisture. This product is actually wonderful for winter! If your skin feels extra dry because of the cold air, do what Bey does and apply it to your face before bedtime. Rinse it off in the morning and see if it does wonders for your dry skin.
Shakira told Allure that one product she cannot live without during the summer is sunblock. Sunblock or sunscreen is pretty much a need when summer comes but Shakira uses BabyGanic Sunscreen Spray for kids because it is organic, gentle and water-proof.
How to Use Sunblock
Even though it’s not summer, it’s best for you to use sunblock every day to shield your skin from the sun and prevent premature ageing. If it’s good enough for Shakira’s skin, it’s good enough for us, right?
4. Facial Scrub
Do you know what Jennifer Lawrence uses to keep her skin silky smooth? She says that this product is pretty much everyone’s go-to facial scrub because it works and it’s affordable. The product is St. Ives’ Apricot Scrub.
How to Use a Facial Scrub
The rule of thumb is to exfoliate once a week. You have to exfoliate twice or three times if your skin is oily. Go for the facial scrub that J-Law uses to get yourself silky-smooth skin just like hers.
5. Lip Balm
Lip balms are commonly used to moisturise lips, but Miranda Kerr uses it in a different way. According to Daily Mail UK, the Aussie model uses lip balm around her eyes. The skin around our eyes is different from the skin that surrounds our face so extra care is needed to moisturize it.
How to Use Your Lip Blam As An Eye Balm
You basically just apply it underneath your eyes. Try doing it before you go to bed. You can rinse it off the next morning and proceed with your usual morning skincare routine.
