Having a good day-to-day skincare regimen is key but as we age more we may want to look into doing a little extra. There are plenty of things you can do that are non-invasive, relatively inexpensive, and really work to give you that boost you’re looking for. Many top celebs such as Jennifer Aniston, JLo, Jessica Alba, Jane Fonda, Kim Kardashian, etc. who crush it in beauty and skincare are clearly going the extra mile but what are they doing regularly that keeps them looking so youthful and radiant? Below are 5 beauty habits Hollywood can’t stop talking about:
The world of beauty devices has really taken off. There are a variety to choose from but generally speaking these stimulate the muscles in your face and help with contouring. Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar is a 24 Karat vibrating bar that helps contour your face as well lift face muscles to give you more defined cheekbones. Another device is the ZIIP Beauty Device & Golden Conductive Gel, which is definitely a pricier tool, however the item is backed by scientists and product engineers making this bad boy a high performance machine. The product works with energetic vibrations that are pushed into the skin through positive-and negatively charged discs. The results are noticeably younger looking skin with reversed signs of aging, decreased acne marks, youthful eyes, and radiant texture. Both of these are must haves according to Jen Aniston.
At-Home Chemical Peels:
These are great and many celebs like Jessica Alba swear by them because they are stronger than day to day products but less intense than an at-office peel. Essentially, they break down the sticky “glue” that binds dull, dead skin cells on the top layer of the complexion + help clear up clogged pores, breakouts, dull skin, and dry skin. The results are usually brighter, smoother, and more even skin tone.
Infrared (or better known as IR) have insane health benefits but word seems to be traveling fast that there are some clear benefits as well. Benefits range from improving skin laxity to sluggish metabolism which has created a cult-craze of LED bed treatments, sauna memberships, and portable IR at-home beauty devices. Dr. Neil Sadick, whose Manhattan dermatology clinic counts supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Adriana Lima has said that manmade forms of infrared have the ability to spark cell repair, produce collagen and elastin, and reduce inflammation.
These are non-invasive facials that can be performed at spas or dermatology offices. Initially it starts like any other facial but the difference is that serums, usually containing hyaluronic acid which is known to plump the skin, are applied to the face with a wand before or after the oxygen portion of the facial. Celebrities like Madonna and Ashley Graham are advocates of this type of treatment for their ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve blood circulation, and promote collagen production for younger looking skin.
Lymphatic Drainage Massages:
These can be done strictly on the face or full body. Our lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other undesirable materials. Through unique lymphatic techniques and high technology equipment, this particular type of massage reduces sizes, deflates the body, tones muscles and boosts the immune system. Results can actually be seen instantly. Here is an image of the results you can expect:
