Every girl has her unique style and each one of us has at least one investment in our closet that we either use for special occasions or we use it as our go-to item when ‘we have nothing to wear’. However, today we’re not talking about clothes and accessories. Yes, we should all invest in that one little black dress, a really good pair of jeans, an Haute handbag, a nice watch and a pair of amazing shoes. But there is one thing every single woman should invest the most in and that’s her skin. This is the one thing you take absolutely everywhere with you and that is why it deserves the utmost care. When you look at stars like Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman and Halle Berry, you can see how amazing their skin is even they’re all over 40 years old, and this is because they follow their skin care routine religiously. Here are some things most celebrities consider their highest priority when it comes to their skin.
Using sunscreen might be just one of the most important things you can do for your skin. In order to avoid premature aging, sunspots and most importantly skin cancer, make using sunscreen with SPF factor 20 part of your everyday routine, even when the sun is not that strong and higher factor during the summer. While Halle Berry uses sunscreen as part of her daily routine, Nicole Kidman goes a step further and tries to stay away from the sun as much as possible, so it’s no wonder she managed to maintain her porcelain skin.
Quality skin products are another thing you really need to invest in because using good products will definitely reflect on your skin. Celebrities like Halle Berry and Diane Kruger regularly use organic skin products for cleansing and moisturizing their skin. Before you decide which type of product you want to use you need to know what type of skin you have in order to find the best thing for you. So if your skin is dry, use products with plenty of water in them. If your skin is oily, you can try using mineral cosmetics. You can try a mineral liquid foundation like the one that can be found online at Skin Matrix. Mineral makeup doesn’t have oil in it so it will help your skin look less shiny.
Face masks and chemical peels
As we age, our skin becomes more dry and dry skin makes us look older. In order to maintain a young and fresh look, try having regular face peels. A chemical peel helps remove all those damaged layers of skin and after it, your skin will restore its youthful glow. If a chemical peel sounds too scary for you, you can also try various face masks. While you don’t have to use the placenta collagen mask like Jennifer Lopez does, you can always find good masks that can exfoliate, moisturize, or deeply clean your skin.
It’s all about the routine
Once you’ve found all the products that are really useful and beneficial for your skin, make sure you stick to your routine. Make sure you clean your face in the morning and evening; going to bed without thoroughly washing off your makeup is probably the worst thing you can do. Regularly moisturize and never, ever step out without a sunscreen. Try using quality skin care products as well as makeup as much as possible. In order to avoid breakouts, you can try skipping makeup when possible or try using as little makeup as possible, like Halle Berry does. And another habit that is extremely important is keeping your makeup brushes and sponges clean. They tend to accumulate lots of bacteria and using a dirty brush or sponge can lead to a nasty breakout, so make sure you wash your brushes and sponges at least once a week.
So, the next time you’re getting ready for a night out in town, going to the cinema with some girlfriends or even for your job in the morning, do not forget to pay the most attention to your skin because this just might be your most important part of your style. Make sure you invest time and money into yourself, because once you look back, you’ll be grateful for it.
