5 Celebrity Skin Care Secrets to Get that Glow at Home
Jet setting around the world can’t be easy on the skin, but you would never know looking at a celebrity. How do they maintain flawless skin despite constant travel?
Our New Orleans dermatologist has created a list of the top five skincare secrets to keep your skin looking just as good as any skin you’ll see on the red carpet. Be sure to try out these simple, at-home tips and visit Dr. Coleman to discuss your personalized skincare strategies.
Get Lots of Sleep
It’s amazing how much sleep affects nearly all aspects of your life, from work performance to physical health. For your skin, getting too little sleep can have a negative impact on your appearance in several ways. First, when you’re too tired, you’re more likely to skip out on important skincare steps and hygiene like removing make-up before you hit the sheets. Furthermore, lack of sleep can cause your body to release more cortisol – a stress hormone that encourages skin inflammation and increases the risk of skin flare-ups. Shoot for at least eight hours of sleep whenever possible to wake-up with a fully refreshed, healthy glow.
Stay Hydrated Inside and Out
Looking for smooth, supple skin? Start with increasing your water intake and re-evaluating how you hydrate skin. High water content helps give skin cells their full volume – meaning smooth, youthful skin. Likewise, increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid within these cells can help skin retain its fullness. To do this, our New Orleans dermatologist recommends ensuring you drink plenty of water each day as well as use a high-quality skin hydration product such as a serum or moisturizer. We can help you choose one for your skin type to add to your daily skincare routine.
Exfoliate Well and Often
Daily grime and damaged skin cells can accumulate across the top layers of skin, leaving you looking dull and worn. Celebrities know that the best way to keep away this unwanted dullness is by incorporating at-home exfoliation treatments weekly and by scheduling deeper treatments with their dermatologists regularly. New exfoliating masks that use gentle amounts of lactic acid or alpha and beta hydroxy acids can be a safe addition to your current regimen without risking unnecessary drying or skin damage.
You Are What You Eat
A balanced diet with minimal dairy or processed sugar is a critical element of nearly every celebrity’s skincare secret, and for good reason. Processed, fried and sugary foods tend to be harder for bodies to process and can trigger skin inflammation in some patients. To achieve celebrity-like skin, consider increasing the amount of healthy proteins, vegetables, and fruits on your plate.
Keep it Simple
Less tends to be more when it comes to skincare. Often, celebrities stick to just a few go-to products to keep skin looking clear and healthy while they’re on the road. While it’s easy to grab every single product recommended by your favorite celebrities, start by testing how your skin reacts and improves to different recommended products. Add products slowly and deliberately.
