4 Insane Celebrity Skin Care Practices

How to get skin like Kate Hudson

It’s hard to turn on the television and not be envious of all the glowing skin we see.  Celebrities not only set the bar with their impeccable style, perfectly tousled hair, and precise makeup, but also their flawless skin.  

With bright lights and zoom lenses, having blemish-free skin is a must.  Many celebrities pay homage to beauty and skincare lines that cost a fortune, and those of us who don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on eye cream, it’s easy to feel discouraged.  But thanks to advances in skin care, many products used by our most beloved style icons can be purchased at reasonable prices.  Check out what some Hollywood starlets and their world-renown dermatologists have shared with the masses.

One of the best-kept secrets to reduce puffiness and get rid of blemishes is honey. Honey, with its natural anti-inflammatory properties, is highly effective when puffy, tired eyes are present.  It’s safe enough to apply directly to your skin without the need of a carrier product, and the smell is sweet enough to bring a smile to your face.  Thanks to its antibacterial properties, dabbing honey on blemishes is a top way to get skin red-carpet ready.  Plus it’s affordable and is easy to find, making honey our number one celebrity beauty secret.

One of the best ways to freshen your face and body is to use gentle exfoliation to allow dull skin to shine brightly.  Celebrities understand that dull skin just doesn’t cut it, which is why many acclaimed dermatologists urge clients to exfoliate at least 3x/week.  Not only does this allow the skin to glow, it also allows the creams and serums used by celebrities to absorb into fresh, healthy skin.  For a simple exfoliation, add brown sugar or ground coffee to your facial cleanser, and buff out facial skin before going to sleep.  Be sure to always follow exfoliation with quality facial oils and serums to avoid skin irritation.


Secret #3: Sunless Tanning

UV rays from the sun may feel good on the skin, but they cause more damage than good when absorbed in large quantities.  Many celebrities prefer to have tan skin in photoshoots, but don’t want to risk premature aging or sun spots.  Because of this, sunless tanning has taken the beauty industry by storm!  Getting a professional spray tan is equivalent to multiple hours in the sun or tanning bed, and provides a beautiful glow to the face and body for weeks.  If a sun-kissed look is your goal, keep your skin looking young by spraying on the tan.


Secret #4: Infrared Saunas

Infrared Saunas are a little known Celebrity skin secret- find out more at Geneva Naturals

Models swear by infrared saunas.  Not only does an infrared sauna increase oxygen in blood cells, leading to deep internal healing and rejuvenation, but the rays that penetrate the body also allow natural detoxification.  When the body is flooded with toxins, swelling and acne can occur.  By sitting in an infrared sauna for one hour a week, your skin will brighten, swelling will decrease, and your whole body will feel like a million bucks!
