Have you ever wondered how stars and celebrities keep their glowing and smooth skins? Well, apart from the obvious surgical procedures or having your pictures run through Photoshop, it appears there are some secrets they are prepared to share with us mortals that we can actually try ourselves at home.
The Stars’ Secrets To Anti-Ageing
Celebrity – Denise Van Outen: Ensure your eyelashes are lush and at their full eye-fluttering potential – try some falsh lashes that can be attached and which last for up to six weeks at Eye-Tec or for a cheaper alternative try Eyelure lashes which you can purchase from Boots or other chemists.
Celebrity – Kylie Minogue: Kylie uses a Yuroll massager on her face which stimulates facial muscles and soothes the senses, whilst also getting rid of excess fluid under the skin and around the eyes. Try massaging your face whilst applying your night cream – apparently the eastern European ladies swear that facial massage keeps them younger looking than their western European sisters.
Celebrity – Carol Vorderman: Our peepers can yellow with age and those gorgeous blue eyes don’t look so good if the whites are tired and discoloured. Drinking lots of water can help, plus enough sleep, but if you really need a pick-up try Eyedew Dazzling Blue Eye Drops.
Celebrity – Dannii Minogue: Yes, very strange … she apparently uses snail gel as an anti-aging treatment.
It contains a combination of Glycolic Acid, Allantoine, Elastane, Vitamins and Collagen and the snail uses it to repair its own shell! Hmm, apparently the stuff in the pot doesn’t resemble anything snail like and if you want to try it it’s available at Holland and Barrett.
Celebrity – Penelope Cruz: Penelope says she just needs at least eight hours sleep per night to stay beautiful and often tries to sleep up to 12 hours when she can … I’m not sure I can regularly fit that into my long days – not sure about you?
However, scientists do agree that people who don’t get enough sleep tend to eat up to 300 calories more than those who do (perhaps because they are awake for longer!) and also according to Dr Loretta’s book – Beauty Camp Handbook for Your Freshest Face – more shut-eye is the way to a younger appearance.
Let’s hear from you with your beauty secrets – the simplest ones are normally the best.
