Celebrities are beautiful, that’s the truth. They have all the best products and famous makeup artists to make them primped and polished, but is the secret really in the lipstick?
Expensive beauty products are great, but most celebrities will tell you that it’s all about their skincare routine that makes a difference. The right skincare routine is about taking care of your skin, not just simply putting on great products to cover it up.
It is true what they say, beauty comes from within. So, if you want to shine like your favorite stars, you need these top beauty secrets.
1. Sleep & Water
This might sound cliché, but Lea Michele swears it makes all the difference in her skin, and the best part is- no expensive products involved. There’s no doubt she’s right, too. Research indicates that sleep is an important factor in healthy skin because when you’re sleep-deprived your body produces more of the stress hormone, cortisol, which relates to acne, breakouts, and other skin impurities.
2. Wash your face
You’ll hear this beauty tip from everyone, even if they’re not celebrities, but Mary J. Blogs especially preaches it. You must remove all the dirt, makeup, and whatever else is on your face from the day in order to allow your skin to heal and rejuvenate overnight. Breakouts might even be the least of your worries. Not removing your makeup completely can lead to infected lash roots, faster aging, irritated eyes, and even styles.
3. Get glowing skin with greens
Olivia Culpo says that beauty starts with what you eat. This gorgeous celebrity admits to having a major sweet tooth, but until speaking with her esthetician, she never really considered the impact that sweets have on her skin. Once she began adding greens and cutting out dairy, she noticed a definite improvement in her skin. This is because dairy and other sugars can be difficult for the body to digest, while greens and other fruits and veggies go to all the right places.
4. Moisturizer & Bronzer
A good moisturizer is a foundation to any pretty face, while the perfect shimmery, bronzer makes you look alive. Eva Mendez says that mixing the two can help you look pretty, but not too made up.
5. And the Eyelids
In addition, it’s important to moisturize the eyelids- which are otherwise forgotten. Ellen Pompeo claims this is her go-to trick so that eye makeup stays on longer, and when you go to smudge your smoky eye, it will smudge naturally, for the perfect look.
6. Face masks are made in the fridge
Not only can you eat your veggies to get glowing skin, but you can also make the best face masks out of them as well. Priyanks Chopra says that dozens of beauty recipes have been handed down to her in her family. One of her favorites is to mix equal parts yogurt with turmeric, apply to face, and wash with warm water. This will give you beautiful, glowing skin like none other.
7. (Almost) Natural lip color
Halle Berry has a secret to natural-looking lips. Apply your favorite shade of red lipstick and then wipe it off. Apply clear lip gloss and voila! Natural, soft, pink lips.
8. Speak positive
Icon and legend, Jennifer Lopez, tells us that she repeats positive mantras to herself. The first part of feeling beautiful is by thinking beautiful. You would not believe how much a few positive thoughts can change the way you look and get you prepared for the day.
9. Avoid too much product
The point is we’re avoiding talking about products here, and that’s exactly what Kerry Washington believes as well. She tries not to wear foundation often and opts for a bit of concealer instead. The truth is that the skin can’t breathe, it doesn’t have lungs, so avoiding makeup keeps your pores free of dirt and other things.
10. Protect your skin from the sun
One of our favorite beauty icons as Jennifer Aniston, but even her perfect complexion doesn’t come from just anywhere. Aniston admits that when she was younger, she didn’t always apply sunscreen, but now she never leaves the house without using SPF 15. Aniston is correct too. The sun may cause other issues, but it is the number one factor that causes wrinkles. Wearing sunscreen moisturizes, protects from the sun, and slows this process.
Now you know, having beautiful, polished skin like your favorite celebrities isn’t as hard as you thought.
