Being constantly in the public eye, it’s really important that famous people dress and look well. You may think that celebrities have a perfect life, but they struggle with skin and body problems like the rest of us.
Fortunately many have tricks up their sleeves so they can look great in front of the paparazzi and on the red carpet. In this article, we will discuss eight secrets that celebrities use in order to have healthy skin and bodies.
1. Hyaluronic Acid
Olivia Munn is a TV personality and actress who has appeared on numerous magazine covers including Maxim, Esquire, and Flaunt Magazine. She credits her success to eating plenty of Japanese potatoes and having daily doses of Hyaluronic acid.
It’s a substance that is naturally produced in the skin, but as we age it fades away. It can be replenished by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. You can also use commercial products to help get more of this acid into your body, including Tarte Cosmetics Pure Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum.
If we don’t eat a healthy, balanced diet it’s likely that our skin and general health will suffer. It’s important that we eat plenty of vegetables because they are rich in minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. They clean your skin by removing the toxins that can develop acne or other skin problems, such as eczema. Vegetables also help you have healthy hair.
Vegetables contain fewer calories so it’s one way for the body to lose weight. Penelope Cruz is a lover of gazpacho which is a Spanish vegetable dish containing olive oil. It’s packed with fatty acids, nutrients, and water, making it a good all-rounder for vitamins, minerals, and hydration.
The internet is a great source of beauty and skincare products. It’s possible to go online to learn about the Omvits range of vegan supplements or the health benefits of Omega-3. People are actively searching online for Vegan Vitamin B12 and D3 tablets, and want to learn about the ingredients.
Cindy Crawford’s dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer, tells her to drink a liter of milk each day. She sprays a mixture (half and half) of milk and mineral water into her face 365 days a year.
Milk contains lactic acid which promotes the growth of new cells and helps prevent wrinkles. Drinking milk can help with weight loss because it’s high in protein and fat but low in carbs. It’s also an anti-inflammatory and it helps fight the signs of aging. Milk also contains calcium, vitamin D, potassium, protein, and phosphorous – all things that promote healthy bones. It can also help you stay hydrated.
4. Petroleum Jelly
Jennifer Aniston is a famous actress who has starred in movies and TV shows, including Friends. According to Aniston, petroleum jelly is a great moisturizer because it’s “completely non-comedogenic” which means that petroleum jelly won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. Jennifer says that she likes slathering petroleum jelly all over her body at night time after showering. According to Media Chicks, she has been known to rub it into the ends of her hair when they get dry and brittle during the winter months too.
It’s important not to use petroleum jelly too often, but it is great for when your skin needs that extra bit of love. You can use it once or twice a week at most. Apply petroleum jelly after moisturizing so the cream doesn’t rub off on your clothes. Interestingly petroleum jelly can also be used as an eye makeup remover although you should use it sparingly.
5. Beer And Honey
You may know Catherine Zeta-Jones from her starring role in the film “Entourage.” She is a Hollywood star who has had her fair share of cellulite. For Zeta-Jones, beer and honey are all she needs to keep her skin smooth and supple – not an expensive spa or Botox.
Honey contains vitamins A, C, and B12 as well as other antioxidants which improve circulation by stimulating blood flow. Beer’s yeast helps control sebum production (the oil that causes acne). Alcohol on its own can dry out your skin but with the inclusion of these ingredients, it becomes more moisturizing for your skin.
6. Hydration And Sleep
It’s not uncommon to hear celebrities stress the importance of hydration and sleep as two key components in their daily health routine. Lea Michel says, “I drink a gallon of water every day. I also take my vitamins, and sleep for at least eight hours.”
Gal Gado says that hydration and sleep are important for “balancing your hormones and boosting collagen production.”
7. Pile Cream
You may know Sandra Bullock from her role in “Miss Congeniality,” but she might be more familiar these days as a pile cream spokesperson! Bullock has battled with piles for years and was even hospitalized during her first pregnancy because of them.
Pile creams are the one product that can stop the skin from becoming irritated due to constipation or hemorrhoids, and Sandra uses them liberally on her face and body to keep her skin tight.
Christie Brinkley has appeared in her own iconic exfoliation ads, and exfoliating isn’t just for the rich and famous. Brinkley uses a sugar scrub that gently removes the old skin cells without irritation or damage. She recommends exfoliating one to three times per week for the best results. It’s important because it removes the dead skin cells that can prematurely age your skin. When you exfoliate apply an exfoliating scrub using a circular motion. This will get rid of any dry patches on your face or body.
If you have acne-prone skin, exfoliate once a day with Toleriane Double Scrub by La Roche-Posay, which has salicylic acid and glycolic acid. This can keep the pores from getting clogged up while also soothing inflammation and redness around any breakouts.
Not only do the rich and famous have the same issues as you, but you can use their remedies to improve your appearance. With the help of celebrity advice, your skin can look fresher and younger than ever before and your health can be improved in the process.
