You don’t need to spend big bucks to look your best. Day-to-day skin and hair care repays you with the long-lasting fabulous appearance. Do you know the models’ and celebs’ beauty tricks? It turns out they have their simple, tried and tested remedies – see the best ways to stun others with flawless skin and healthy, glossy tresses.
1. ARGAN OIL
The liquid gold of Morocco is like treasure for people that are big on natural, top-notch beauty solutions. Argan oil is absolutely the world’s best beauty product – celebs swear by it and they are right. This oil repairs and beautifies the hair, cleanses and cares for the scalp, revives the skin, rejuvenates and minimizes wrinkles, helps fight cellulite and fixes damaged nails after gel. Use it solo as a face serum or hair mask, or mix it with other natural products, oils and floral waters.
2. MAKE-UP REMOVAL
Kendall Jenner never forgets to take her make-up off. It’s a good thing because cleansing is the most important skin-care stage. Sleeping with poorly-cleansed face or – even worse – not removing make-up at all is an easy way to clog the skin pores and spark acne breakouts, pimples and inflammation. The skin starts to rebel, loses a nice color, becomes dry or oily as if it cried for help and wanted to draw your attention. So, always remove your make-up before sleep and cleanse the face using quality products.
3. FACE YOGA
Can you exercise your face? Sure, you can? Models and actresses know that very well. In Hollywood face yoga is as popular as “regular” yoga. Give it a try – wrinkles will be reduced and the skin will regain lost plumpness after just two weeks. After all, the face has lots of muscles so you can fight the gravity by exercising regularly. This way you keep the perfect face shape for longer.
4. TEA TREE OIL
Adriana Lima loves natural cosmetic ingredients that have been used and appreciated for ages. Tea tree oil is one of them. This is one of the strongest remedies for skin blemishes which lets you effortlessly and quickly get rid of pimples and other imperfections. Tea tree oil is perfect to treat both face and body acne. It has an antibacterial and antifungal effect: apply it 2-3 times a day on a pimple – it will disappear really fast!
5. COLD SHOWER
Irina Shayk is a well-known Russian supermodel famous for her flawless skin. How does she do it?! She believes in cold showers which stimulate blood flow and act as a natural detox preventing the blockage of lymph and cellulite. She also uses ice compresses and cucumber masks regularly – a budget-friendly treatment to enjoy unflawed skin free from pigmentation spots and imperfections. A cold compress in the morning reduces puffiness and stimulates microcirculation while a cucumber mask has a brilliant hydrating effect.
6. BODY BRUSHING
Miranda Kerr regularly brushes her body. She uses a natural bristle brush and starts the massage with the feet moving upwards. After brushing the chest she moves on to the arms and shoulders. If you wonder what’s the point of this kind of massage, let us give you a good reason. Massaging the body with a dry brush is a great way to remove dead skin cells as well as activate the flow of blood and lymph – this means you are one step away from smooth cellulite-free skin.
7. HAIR MASKS
Do you remember such products exist?! Many girls forget about them not paying much attention to hair care: they merely shampoo the hair, apply a conditioner, wash it out and blow-dry the tresses. Hair looks bad when you don’t treat it right – models know that so they treat their hairdos to home spa once in a while using hair oil treatments or mixing good hair mask with a favorite oil. Keratin, silk and argan masks are the best-sellers.
