How to Have Oscar-Worthy Skin
Pinehurst Medical Clinic Dermatology would like to share some tips of the trade to give you an edge over everyday folks. It’s the Oscars this weekend, so you might be cozying up on the couch, eating popcorn, and lamenting about the fact that said actor hasn’t aged at all. As a matter of fact, he or she even looks like they’re getting younger.
So, you might be asking yourself, “what do celebrities do to achieve amazing skin?” You’re wondering what they’re doing that you’re not. We’ll let you in on some of their secrets below.
Increase Water Intake and Uptake
This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important that your body and your skin stays hydrated to achieve a supple, ageless look. Harsh facial cleansers and less-than-effective fragranced lotions might be doing more harm than good.
If you stay hydrated and keep a healthy skin barrier that rids you from cracks and dryness, your skin will stay camera ready.
Celebrities are Organized and Plan Ahead
They know months in advance before they hit the red carpet, so they step up their routine in anticipation of the paparazzi 6-18 weeks before an event. Celebrities might come in to see their dermatologist or skin specialist twice a week for polishing, cleansing, and nourishing from toe to top of head. They get the full body treatment, because many don’t know what they’ll be wearing or how revealing it will be.
Of course, not everyone has those kinds of resources. But building a strong skincare practice will go a long way.
Try Facials and Microneedling
Facials, microdermabrasion and microneedling are both great ways to boost your skin’s natural collagen production and healing abilities, giving you a radiant glow and supple skin.
It’s also important to pay special attention to your diet. Avoid sugars and caffeine, if you can. Stay away from carbs and salty foods, too, which will help prevent bloating and breakouts.
Last Big Secret, They See a Dermatologist
A celebrity’s dermatologist is one of their best friends and one of their most effective weapons for looking great in front of the camera, which leads to more roles and more recognition.
If you’d like more recognition in your life, taking great care of your skin is a fantastic place to start. Pinehurst Medical Clinic Dermatology can help you address a wide range of skin concerns, bringing out the best version of you.
We hope your favorite movies from this past year also get the recognition they deserve. But don’t be surprised if there are a few curveballs for the Oscars 2018.
