Can we get the skincare routine?

It is pretty clear that celebrities have access to some of the world’s best facials and high-tech beauty devices. Still, in interviews about their skincare, their best advice is usually simple and inexpensive. Here are some of the celebrity-approved steps for maintaining great skin conditions.

Using Toothpaste To Fight Pimples & Spots

While the toothpaste is not specifically designed to remove facial blemishes, American model Gigi Hadid says that toothpaste is her top-secret weapon for fighting spots and pimples. 

Passed down from her mother, Gigi prefers this no-frills approach over expensive beauty treatments and put toothpaste on a pimple at night before going to sleep. Then she takes a small piece of toilet paper, wet it, put it on her finger, press it over the top and then peel the excess paper off. It dries like papier-mâché and retains moisture and applied toothpaste. On the next day, all you have to do is to put a wet towel on it, and it all comes off while your spots receive a drying effect.

Applying CBD Topicals To Soothe Skin & Prevent Dry-Skin Conditions

Nowadays, you can find CBD oil is in literally everything – you can bathe in it with the help of a CBD infused bath bomb, you can eat it by consuming CBD oil gummies, you can smear it from head to toe by purchasing various CBD topicals. And it looks like the biggest names in Hollywood are also recognising its promising benefits. Indeed, with its purported calming effects on the body and mind, CBD is transforming the skincare industry, and even stars like Kristen Bell, Kim Kardashian, Stacy London and Tamra Judge are becoming some of CBDs biggest proponents.

While many celebs swear by using CBD oil for anxiety and pain relief, many prefer to apply CBD balms, creams and lotions to alleviate sore muscles, address dry skin and relieve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, all thanks to its potential anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, soothing, antibacterial and antifungal properties

Practicing Facial Massage

An important step in the morning and evening skincare routine of Australian model and businesswoman Miranda Kerr is a daily 5-minute facial massage with facial oil. She uses a rose quartz gua sha stone to practice an ancient healing technique that is used to massage the face and neck to stimulate circulation and decrease puffiness while lifting, sculpting and toning. 

Miranda states that lymphatic drainage intended to improve circulation and remove swelling from the face is a useful technique that can be done with a facial tool or simply with your fingers.

Using Olive Oil As A Hand Oil Or Body Scrub

Another celebrity favorite for beautiful skin is olive oil. So make sure to move it from your kitchen to the bathroom as it is truly beneficial for your skin. 

First, it is very moisturizing and also contains many skin-friendly omegas and fatty acids that nourish the skin. Julia Roberts prefers to simply use olive oil as her hand oil, while Cate Blanchett gets a little creative and usually makes a homemade body scrub with olive oil, sea salt and grapefruit juice.

Wearing Sunscreen To Prevent Pre-Mature Aging

Australian actress, producer and theatre director Cate Blanchett understands the harsh effects of the Australian sun and how essential it is to protect our skin. Not only to prevent sun spots and wrinkles but also to protect against skin cancer.

So the best advice from Cate is to use sunscreen daily and stay out of the harsh Australian sun. When looking for sunscreen, make sure you are looking for an SPF50 to maximise your protection and maintain a radiant and smooth complexion!
