How celebrities prep their skin for big events
From movie screens to red carpets to candid shots — celebrity skin is scrutinized so it’s no surprise that many of them endeavor to have the best-looking skin as possible. One thing that helps actors, singers and models look their best is using products with antioxidants in their skin care routine as well as their nutrition. Find out what they do and how you can recreate their efforts at home.
1. Antioxidant-Rich Diet
While eating antioxidants doesn’t automatically guarantee flawless skin it can certainly contribute to a glowing complexion. If you have a big event coming up you should eat lots of nutritious foods. We recommend citrus fruits, leafy greens, and nuts to help you get your daily vitamins and healthy oils. Many celebrities swear by smoothies to get a full range of nutrients which they can enjoy with just a few sips. Try this easy green juice: mix three cups of spinach with one cup of yellow delicious apples. Add half a cup of lemon juice and half a cup of orange juice and some ginger then blend in a mixer. This juice is easy to make and filled with Vitamins A and C which tastes great and is perfect for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Celebrities don’t just prep their skin before big events during the day, they also use skin care at night to reap the skin benefits. One product that can help skin brightness and smoothness and make it appear even toned and radiant is an overnight peel. Overnight peels can help surface cell turnover and have exfoliating qualities which allow you to wake up with refreshed, even skin..
To recreate the effect of waking up with radiant skin at home, try Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Overnight Leave-On Peel. It’s a gentle, yet powerful leave-on peel with glycolic alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) and Vitamin C. With continued use it helps even skin tone and minimizes the look of dark spots while you sleep.
Something that almost all celebrities do before a big event is scrub. That’s because removing dead skin cells helps skin glow and provides a clean canvas for skin care and make up application. If you have a big event coming up exfoliate your skin that week so your skin will look energized for the occasion. Get soft skin and a revitalized look by using Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub. The gentle scrub with Jojoba beads deeply cleanses and polishes skin to refine pores. Additionally the formula infused with peppermint instantly energizes skin for a healthy complexion. It’s gentle enough to use on a daily basis so you can create a countdown for your big day by exfoliating regularly.
Another celeb-worthy tip? Exfoliate your neck and décolletage as well as your face the day before your big event. If you’re wearing a dress with a low-cut neckline you don’t want your neck or chest to look dull and rough in comparison to your face right?
H2O is key. Make sure that you are drinking lots of water before your big event so that you look and feel hydrated. An easy way to make water more fun and desirable to drink is by adding fruits and vegetables, which makes it tasty and can add some vitamins and antioxidants for an added boost. Lemon, berries and slices of cucumber can kick your water up a notch and also make it nutritious. Try it to make your own water “cocktail.”
5. Brightening Moisturizers
Luminous skin is a must-have for celebrities and I’m sure for you it’s also a big plus. It’s pretty easy to accomplish at home – finish your skin care routine by applying a moisturizer with Vitamin C. A good option is Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 with Vitamin C and E, pine bark essence, and gently exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA). It’s fast absorbing and non-greasy and will turn dull, rough skin into smooth, polished-looking skin with a more radiant, even tone.
Getting red-carpet worthy skin is easy with the help of the right products. By following these steps you’ll be ready for your close-up.
