Celebrities - while I wouldn’t want to deal with their scrutiny from the public, one thing that would be amazing to have is their glam teams and resources - I mean, if millions of people are going to be talking about your skin, it better look amazing, right?
While I can’t provide a dedicated facialist, makeup artist, hair stylist, nutritionist, personal trainer and wellness guru in one article, the least I can do is share some of the products your favorite celebrities use in order to help maintain their beauty!
For so many reasons, JLo is #Goals. Body, dancing, acting, perfume, singing - she’s a true mogul. And while being successful in so many industries sounds like it could cause early aging signs due to stress, she seems to look perpetually 22 despite actually being 49! She credits clean eating, exercising, meditation, and a strict skincare regimen for her graceful aging, and one of her favorite products is Sjal’s Saphir Concentrate, an anti-aging facial oil. It’s $175 a bottle, so if you can afford it, splurge - it works for Ms. Lopez! However, you can also rejoice that this beauty is adding another business soon - a skincare line due out this year!
In some ways, one could say Jennifer Lopez is following in the footsteps of another seemingly ageless Latina mogul, Jessica Alba, whose young and dewy skin is absolutely flawless. Alba, of course, is the founder of the Honest Beauty company, which has a wide array of fabulous products. One notable standout is the Honest Beauty Clearing Cleanser from the “Younger & Clearer” line of products that addresses both acne and anti-aging at the same time - finally!
I’ve always joked that it isn’t fair that we have to go from one focus to the other - when we’re thinking about wrinkles, we should be done with the acne stuff, right? “Wrong,” says our bodies, and “I’ve got you!” answers Alba & Honest Beauty!
If you haven’t been marveling over Margot Robbie’s gorgeousness lately, perhaps you’ve been asleep! From Wolf of Wallstreet to Suicide Squad and I, Tonya, she’s been a very busy lady! One of her more prominent features is her luscious and full pout. She keeps it kissable in a somewhat unconventional way - with nipple/diaper rash cream! You may have heard that a lot of lip balm products are actually not great for your lips because they have products that dry them out, which makes you need more lip balm (so shady!), which is why she has been using Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment her whole life instead - it is formulated for dry skin, and she says it does the trick!
Looking for the skin of an angel? Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes is another lovely lady who’s all about the oil. For her body, she keeps it simple with baby oil! She also breaks open capsules of vitamin E to put on her face - which is brilliant, because vitamin E is so wonderful for your skin, and the capsules make it so easy for travel! She also loves Vitamin C Facial Serum by OZNaturals, which is super moisturizing and helps brighten skin!
Another Angel and fan of oils is Adriana Lima, who uses regular coconut oil on her skin at night. She also swears by sunscreen to keep her skin looking youthful, and is religious on putting it on, even if it is cold and cloudy outside. Her favorite is by SunBum!
Taylor Hill is another angel whose skin has gotten her some attention - and that’s because she’s not afraid to show it, even when isn’t perfect. She gave us all some “aww, she has struggles, too!” feelings when she posted some makeup-free selfies on Instagram with less-than-perfect skin. She’s the face of Lancome, so it’s not shocking that she’s a fan of their products, especially the Energie de Vie Nuit overnight recovery sleep masque. With a schedule like hers, multitasking by working on your skin in your sleep is a smart move!
One might think that a beloved Disney star would not be worrying about anti-aging, but Selena Gomez swears by Oil of Olay, even using the moisturizer as a protective foundation before applying makeup. She also uses their cleansing products, with brand loyalty and love inspired by both her mother and grandmother!
As a L’Oreal Ambassador, it’s no surprise that stunner Blake Lively swears by their Extraordinary Oil... And with those long, healthy-looking sunny California girl locks, she is worth listening to! Try out her secret for extraordinary hair! For skin, she is a huge follower of the rule of removing your makeup before bed - and has visited the L’Oreal labs and seen the studies to prove its importance!
Brace yourself: the beauty secret that both Queen Bey AND Duchess Meghan Markle swear by can be yours for only five dollars, AND it can be used for beauty multitasking! Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment is Beyonce’s go-to bedtime moisturizer, and it also can work as a highlighter for photos - applied to the same parts of the face, to give that “glowing from within” look. Now we know how she woke up like this!
Founder of Fenty, one of the biggest beauty launches this decade, Rihanna knows the importance of beautiful skin and how much easier it is to have great makeup when the underneath part is looking great! She adores moisturizing products, including sprays like Caudlie’s Beauty Elixir (which is on the list of almost every other celebrity mentioned so far as well). And if you’re wondering what she uses to wipe off all that Fenty before bed, it’s Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes!
On the opposite end of the spectrum as far as relatability for most of us, Kim Kardashian-West has shared peeks of her beauty routine on Snapchat (of course!), and the vast majority of the products are in the triple-digit (before the decimal point) price range, with it totaling almost $5K for her daily routine! There are, however, a couple of products on her list that are pretty attainable for all of us (it’s not all Dr, Lancer and La Mer - hurray!) - Bio Oil Specialist Skincare Oil, and THE ORDINARY Granactive Retinoid* 2% Emulsion, which can be found for $10-15
Sometimes the classics are classics for a reason, and Charlize Theron is one who agrees! She loves La Mer’s Creme de La Mer, and sunscreens by La Prairie (the Cellular Radiance Emulsion SPF 30 to be exact) and La Roche-Posay Antihelios Ultra Light Sunscreen.
Lancome makes the list again, this time from Penelope Cruz, who is also not a stranger to the makeup-free selfie on Instagram which definitely makes one think “I’ll have what she’s having!” While she gives lots of credit to healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices, she also loves Advanced Genifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum - and we don’t blame her if it helps her look that fabulous!
There you have it! A shopping list of products from celebrities whose skin glows from the inside out! Just don’t forget to do all of the other things they’re doing to help those products work - like drinking lots of water, exercising, eating clean, not smoking, keeping caffeine and alcohol to a minimum, and getting a lot of sleep! It’s no wonderful being beautiful can be a full-time job!
