It may be surprising for some to realize that what keeps many celebrities looking so young is actually not a secret at all.
One of the secrets to glowing skin that celebs have publicly acknowledged is facials. Yet, these are more often than not luxurious treats for their skin like caviar sheet masks or eye masks made out of crushed pearls.
The average woman, however, doesn’t have regular stem cell facials as part of her beauty routine. She can, nevertheless, try LED light therapy facials instead. These use non-invasive technology to treat areas underneath the skin. Celebs like Constance Wu have that lovely glow thanks to consistent cleansing routines and light therapy facials.
There is no shortage of stunning bodies in blockbuster films and award-winning television. So, one must correctly assume that exercise is key to celebrity good looks. Even if you don’t have access to a personal trainer, you can still get into excellent health by visiting the gym multiple times a week. According to health experts, adults should strive for up to 300 minutes of moderate physical activity per week or up to 150 minutes of aerobic activity per week.
Madonna has an impressive home gym and dance studio in her Lisbon mansion, and continuously incorporates dance into her workout routines. It’s said she exercises 30 minutes a day six times a week.
Just like celebrities do, you too should reward yourself for all that upkeep. Treat your body to a spa-level experience at home. Purchase an anti-aging device to give yourself the perfect facial while you’re lounging in bed, or keep your skin looking flawless with an at-home hair removal device while you enjoy the latest Netflix show. Pamper your skin within the privacy of your home.
These handheld devices deliver the same results as spas. So don’t believe the myths about at home options — especially when so many celebrities endorse their use. These portable hair removal devices are safe and effective as they harness the same technology used in dermatologists’ offices.
Celebrity hairstylists know that the way to a perfect mane is through a healthy scalp. Brushing your hair and scalp daily has many benefits. Besides increasing blood flow, daily brushing clears the hair follicles and transports the scalps natural oils to the ends of the hair.
Brushing before shampooing is an ideal technique to loosening any dirt or dead cells that can be easily removed in the shower. Top Hollywood stylists also recommend getting oil treatments at least every two weeks to revitalize and nourish the hair. Jojoba, argan and coconut oil make great bases for oil treatments.
