Popular culture is full of articles, interviews, information and speculation about celebrities and their beauty regimes, secrets and best treatments for improving skin texture.
Because these regimes and secrets are used by celebrities it’s not unreasonable to assume that they are beyond anything we could possibly afford. So our interest as observers is to find what out what they do and to investigate the possibility of replicating the outcome within our own, more modest means.
But it seems that some celebrities have a number of natural beauty tips that are accessible from any budget and based on what we see on the big screen and the modelling runways, they work pretty effectively.
Natural oils from avocado, coconut and kukui have excellent moisturising properties according to actress Lupito Nyong’o and Cate Blanchett uses macadamia and olive oils mixed with grapefruit juice and sea salt for a facial scrub.
You often find that rosewater is used in perfume because it has such a lovely fragrance but Rosewater has other qualities as well. It’s full of antioxidants that help to protect the skin cells from damage and it has anti inflammatory properties that soothe irritations to the skin. Actress Halle Berry is a huge fan of rosewater as a way to keep her complexion looking fresh.
Steam facials remove dirt, bacteria and other impurities from your skin. It’s a gentle and natural cleansing that makes for a soft, illuminating complexion according to Miranda Kerr. She fills a basin with freshly boiled water and a green tea bag. Then she places a towel over her head and leans over the basin to cleanse the impurities from her skin.
Try a coffee body scrub
We know how effective coffee is for our morning routine but you probably didn’t know that it has outstanding credentials as an exfoliator and for combating cellulite. The texture in coffee grains remove dead skin and lit eaves the complexion looking smooth. And according to Jesse J and Hall Berry, coffee body scrubs can stimulate blood circulation.
Whole body cryotherapy is an extremely effective non-invasive beauty therapy that may have a number of additional health benefits that can leave you feeling revitalised and energised after every treatment; just ask Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Jessica Alba.
By exposing the body to below zero temperatures for short periods of time, Cryotherapy can stimulate the production of collagen which may improve the elasticity of the skin to create a more youthful appearance.
Cryotherapy may just be the best non surgical wrinkle treatment because the extremely cold temperatures can cause the blood vessels to widen. The increased flow of oxygen can initiate the body’s healing and speeds up the removal of toxins.
As more oxygen reaches the blood cells, the skin rejuvenation procedure can kick start healing in the body and may speed up the removal of toxins.
Cryotherapy can also be effective for treating acne, eczema, psoriasis and cellulite, leaving the skin looking radiant, smooth and much tighter.
