Skincare-Tips-The-Secrets-Behind-Red-Carpet-Ready-Skin.jpgFor many of us, the most anticipated part of any award show consists of the red-carpet arrivals. Celebrities go all out to look glamorous, and nothing goes unnoticed—particularly their flawless, glowing skin. How do they do it? All of the stars have their own beauty secrets and skincare tips.

We’ve detailed some of them below. Use these tips and you too can have beautiful skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

Many celebrities look like they haven’t aged a day in 20 years. It seems like they’ve found the fountain of youth—and are keeping it a secret. When in reality, it’s all about moisture.

Loss of moisture in the skin can lead to premature aging, encouraging the development of wrinkles and fine lines. Many factors can lead to loss of moisture, including poor nutrition, sun damage, and lack of water. These factors play a role in the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, which aids in the retention of moisture and contributes to youthful looking skin.

Celebrities take care of themselves—they drink plenty of water and eat their fruits and vegetables to increase their body’s production of hyaluronic acid. They also invest in medical-grade skincare products, like VivierSkin Vitamin C Scrub with Hyaluronic Acid, for long-lasting hydration.

Sunscreen

Excessive sun exposure can dry out the skin, accelerate the aging process, and lead to damaged skin and sun spots. Most celebrities will tell you they never go outside without applying broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect their skin from sun exposure and to promote healthy looking skin.

There are sunscreens available for any skin type—whether you have acne, sensitive skin, dry skin, or another skin condition. It’s best to consult with an aesthetician to find the sunscreen that best works for your unique skin type.

Vitamin C

Some celebrities, like the former Bond girl Halle Berry, look years younger due to vitamin C, which is a vital component of skin health. This essential nutrient for great skin plays an important role in the production of collagen, which is the fibrous protein that is the basis for the skin’s structure. Vitamin C also protects the skin from the aging process, and its antioxidant properties can also neutralize free radicals.

For skin complexions like Halle Berry’s, there are many medical-grade skincare products for you to choose that come enriched with vitamin C.

Beverages

Did you know that what you drink can affect your skin? A great skincare tip that celebrities swear by is the avoidance of beverages with excess sugar and sodium such as soda and diet soda, juice, coffee drinks, and sports drinks.

Excess sugar can wreak havoc on the skin’s collagen while too much sodium can make the skin look puffy. As a result, many celebrities opt for water and tea instead.

Makeup

Choosing the wrong makeup brand can irritate the skin and even exacerbate skin conditions. Celebrities spare no expense when it comes to the makeup brands they wear. They choose products with natural ingredients that allow their skin to breathe and won’t irritate the skin. In particular, most wear mineral makeup, which also has a soothing effect on the skin.

Microdermabrasion

Most celebrities don’t just wake up the day of an award show with perfect skin. Rather, they work on attaining glowing skin for weeks—or even months—ahead of time. Celebrities like Naomi Campbell swear by microdermabrasion for smoother skin.

Using a suction with a diamond-grade tip, microdermabrasion effectively removes dead skin cells and resurfaces the skin. It can treat wrinkles, acne scarring, age spots, and sun damage, leaving you with radiant and soft skin.

Chemical Peel

The answer to many celebrity wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and facial blemishes is the chemical peel. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure uses a chemical solution that removes the damaged outer layer of the skin to improve and smooth the skin.
