While some celebrities veer off into Wackytown with their faddish beauty treatments, others actually pick some smart strategies for their skin. As such, at Kristals we decided to do a deep dive into what celebs seem to favor for looking their best, sharing some ideas you may want to consider adding to your daily, weekly or monthly beauty routine, depending on what your budget allows.
Kristals Loves: The Best Celebrity Beauty Routines
1) Facial Masks
Sounds simple, but celebrities tend to do it a bit differently. Ricky Martin recently posted a shot of him trying a 24K Gold Facial mask on Facebook—and he’s not the only one. Ellie Goulding, Donna Air and Kate Hudson have all tried them. And they swear by them as a way to remove impurities and leave the skin looking fresh and radiant. For her part, Gwyneth Paltrow seems to favor apple stem cell facials at a private L.A. salon. The celebs may be on to something: researchers at Kristals say there is solid clinical evidence that both gold and gemstones offer strong anti-aging benefits for skin.
For a concentrated pure gold boost, try the GOLD 24K Gold Eye Perfecting Serum from Kristals.
As far as facial masks from Kristals, choose from the following balancing and energizing formulas:
- RUBY Super Thermal Repair Mask – for the most advanced anti-aging science available today
- AVENTURINE Collagen Booster Mask – with purifying kaolin clay to balance dry and oily skin, reduce inflammation, and seal in moisture
- DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Magnetic Mask – a unique combination of magnetic healing and pure diamond power to bring you incomparable health and renewed beauty
2) Lip Masks
These are also hot, basically as a way to make your lips look luscious and highly moisturized. Just ask Jessica Alba and Lady Gaga—two major adopters of the lip mask. In Lady Gaga’s case, she used a lip mask that delivers plant stem cells to the skin, along with collagen lip jelly.
3) Eye Creams
Again, seemingly simple tip, but Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian prefer specific spot treatments using just eye creams rather than other skincare products for the entire face. This makes sense, say Kristals researchers, because the creams are specially formulated for the sensitive skin in the eye area.
To reverse visible damage to your skin, try the SAPPHIRE Retinol Firming & Lifting Eye Cream from Kristals with sapphire, retinol, vitamin E, and shea butter.
4) Epsom Salts
While most of us may know this drugstore staple as something to use when your back is sore and you need to soak, Jennifer Lawrence used it on the advice of her trainer before an awards show to help eliminate any kind of body bloating.
So if you have a big date or event where you’ll be wearing a clingy dress, a relaxing bath with epsom salts is worth a shot to make your whole body look smooth and plump. (Also, follow these bathing habits to improve your skin.)
5) Apple Cider Vinegar
Instead of a regular toner, Scarlett Johansson prefers using apple cider vinegar (ACV) because she feels it helps control her breakouts. Miranda Kerr, on the other hand, actually prefers using a bit in the shower on her hair as a rinse, followed by conditioner, while Megan Fox actually takes it by the spoonful as a way to cleanse her system.
