Here at TheBeautyPlace.com we are committed to getting you the best beauty scoop, information and entertainment. On Friday, we began our three-day series on Celebrity Skincare Secrets and today we conclude with two more important steps to great-looking skin.
DON’T SCRUB TOO HARD
‘It’s a myth that the more you scrub the more refreshed your skin will look — over-exfoliating will do more harm than good,’ cautions Marie Reynolds, head of international education for Eve Taylor Skincare. We suggest using a gentle scrub, twice a week. And one of our faves is the Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads.
BEST TIP: Don’t forget to include the neck and décolleté in your skin care routine as these will be on show, too. Keep the delicate skin in these areas well-moisturized and glowing.
‘Most people suffer from bad skin from time to time, says Una Brennan, beautician to actress, Sienna Miller and model, Laura Bailey. ‘If the breakout is a hardened painful swelling under the skin, don’t touch it, it will just make a mess. Instead, use a cold compress on it to bring the swelling down and send excess blood supply away from the area and apply a good clay mask. We absolutely love the Murad Clarifying Mask.
BEST TIP: Drink an antioxidant-rich juice to brighten your skin. Put the following into a juicer: 2 apples, 1 stick celery, 1 carrot, a handful of spinach, 1in ginger, 1 lemon, handful sprouts (anything but alfalfa), 1in courgette, 1in cucumber, 1 beetroot or half a large beetroot. Blend juice with an avocado and two spoonfuls of flax seed. Your skin and eyes will immediately be brighter.
