Have you ever wondered how celebrities maintain their youthful appearance despite their age or adversity? We admit to being envious of them, but we realise they have an army of personal beauty experts on hand to assist them.
The foundations of effective treatment, on the other hand, are basic and accessible to everyone. Let’s look at it together!
1. Don’t discount the benefits of sunscreen.
Skin that is both beautiful and nutritious cannot be accomplished without the application of sunscreen on a daily basis. Any other attempts you make will be in vain if you ignore this law, according to Mamie McDonald, a beauty expert who collaborated with Madonna. Dr Lancer, another celebrity cosmetologist, recommends using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 that is reapplied during the day.
2. Don’t overdry your skin if there’s an inflammation.
Most anti-spot creams contain benzoyl peroxide that dries the skin, aggravates inflammation, and increases the development of sebum. Since alcohol has a similar effect, you won’t be able to get rid of these spots. Exfoliating with salicylic or lactic acid, as well as washing masks with clay, was recommended by Dr Harold Lancer.
3. Never forget about your neck.
The neck is one part of a woman’s body that almost instantly reveals her age, so it’s important to take good care of it. The skin is thin here, and it necessitates the same level of treatment as your face. If you don’t go any further than your chin, you’ll be fine.
4. Rub an ice cube into your skin.
To avoid dull skin, dermatologist Dr Ava Shamban of Santa Monica recommends rubbing your face with an ice cube for a few seconds. This simple trick increases circulation, giving your skin a healthy glow.
5. Store your beauty accessories correctly.
Dr Debra Jaliman advises against keeping beauty products in the bathroom because the wet, humid air causes them to expire faster. Face creams and other beauty products that aren’t used regularly should be kept in the refrigerator.
6. Keep everything that touches your skin clean.
Dr Lancer advises against touching your face with dirty hands. If you have dry or natural skin, change your pillowcases at least once a week; if you have oily skin, change them every three days. Clean your smartphone’s screen on a regular basis.
7. Don’t use scrubs and face sponges, especially if you’re prone to acne.
If you have acne, Christie Kidd, a Beverly Hills skincare expert, advises against using abrasive skincare products (scrubs, sponges, brushes) since they only cause more inflammation. Any skin type should be cleansed gently without soap, and spots should be treated with a water-and-aspirin paste to minimise reddening and inflammation.
8. Facial massage will help get rid of circles under your eyes.
Lymph drainage massage, according to Ole Henriksen, will help with dark circles under the eyes. The treatment increases lymph movement, smoothes the skin, and eliminates the “bags.” You can even do it at home because it is not difficult to understand.
9. Take care of your hands.
Since the skin on the hands is thin and delicate, they need the same level of attention as the neck. Try doing your chores with gloves on and applying cream to your skin on a daily basis. Anti-age creams can be used on both your hands and your face. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen!
10. Cleanse your skin thoroughly
Makeup should never be worn to bed, according to dermatologist Debra Jaliman. You’ll end up with clogged pores and inflammation if you do this. As simple as it might be, many people still ignore this advice.
11. Always take off your bra before going to bed.
Doctors advise against leaving your bra on before going to bed, despite all the claims that your breasts will become perkier as a result of it. A bra, particularly one that is too tight or wired, can restrict blood flow and cause health problems. It also induces skin irritation, restlessness as a result of pain, and darkening of the skin under the straps and wire.
