Celebrities love to flaunt their glowing skin! With rigorous routines, workouts, and constant attention in the limelight, the natural health of the skin of celebs can take a beating. The necessary evil of applying tons of makeup for shoots or every time they make an appearance in public, also adds to the skin health concerns.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, reduces wrinkles and fine lines in the skin, and lightens up dark spots or other sun and age related spots on the skin.
Not surprisingly, most celebrities have comprehensive skin care routines that focus on exfoliation to keep the natural tone of the skin!
Here are some celebrities and their skin care tips:
Elle Macpherson: In her fabulous fifties now, Elle’s favorite skin care word is “exfoliate”. She admitted in an interview that she exfoliates her face every day and the entire body twice in a day. Elle also believes in a holistic approach to health and fitness and adds moisturizing, balancing out the fluid intake, and other regimes to add to her rigorous celebrity skin care routine.
Christie Brinkley: The celebrity looks just half her age and credits her timeless skin tone to the power of exfoliating. She started to exfoliate about 40 years ago when she read an article in a magazine that men look five years younger than women simply because the shaving they do serve to exfoliate the dead skin cells on their face. Since then, the ageless celebrity has kept up her skin care routines with exfoliating regularly.
Beyonce: Dr. Harold Lancer, a celebrity dermatologist who recommends exfoliating to clients including Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, and Kim Kardashian among others, believes in the power of exfoliating too. He recommends the celebrities to exfoliate the outer layer or the epidermal stratum corneum before commencing a cleansing and moisturizing routine. He believes the skin can be damaged every day with the pollutants, aging process, and sun exposure, which has to be erased with exfoliation. The doctor also says exfoliating is like an exercise that you carry out every day.
Priyanka Chopra: The Indian actress of Quantico fame swears by the traditional natural exfoliating methods handed down to her from generations. Oatmeal and honey are this celebrity’s favorite ingredients to exfoliate. Her flawless skin tone stands witness to the amazing effect natural skin care can have on one's skin.
