Everybody would love to look like a celebrity, but let’s face it…celebrities have a lot of help looking the way they look. Never underestimate the power of makeup, airbrush, and photoshop, for one. While you might be able to attain the glowing skin and sexy, smoky eyes of the rich and famous through the power of eyeshadow and highlighting powder, what’s underneath that makeup is just as important, if not even more important. Especially considering the fact that makeup clogs the pores and can cause outbreaks.
If you’re looking to have skin that shines like a celebrity, you’re going to have to do several different things to obtain it. Don’t know where to start? Here’s a good place:
People will tell you to down the water like there is no tomorrow. While water is important for you internally, it won’t have an immediate affect on the appearance of your skin. Since your skin is the largest organ on your body, it has an absorption rate that is quick, and it mostly absorbs from the outside via osmosis. That means that whatever lotions, inks, or chemicals you’re putting on your skin are getting directly absorbed into your bloodstream.
You must drink water, but you must hydrate topically. Find moisturizers and night creams that are natural and experts at giving your skin the hydration it needs. Apply religiously to achieve best results. When you’re hydrated, you’re one step closer to having skin that shines like a Kardashian.
As much as you’d like to think you are, you’re no expert on beauty and skin care. You might have been able to skirt by on little to no moisturizer as a child, but in your older age, you’ll need help diagnosing the problems that arise with years gone by.
There is a lot you can do on a procedural level to help your skin out. Get peels and microdermabrasion. If you have age spots or moles that are a concern or make you look less like a celebrity than you want to look, seek help to get expert advice on what to do.
Learn the Tricks of the Trade
Like we said before, you can have beautiful skin, but in the end, it’s the photoshop, the airbrush, and the makeup that make a beautiful person appear perfect. You can’t help the photoshop or airbrush dilemma, but you can help yourself in the realm of makeup.
Go to a class to learn the proper way to apply makeup to get the results you desire. Do research to find the right product that is going to be healthy for you and help you look as flawless as a Victoria’s Secret model. Just remember that in the end, you are beautiful just the way that you are. Beauty shouldn’t be defined by things that are without flaw. Beauty lies in the flaws, so address that first, and then do your thing and look fabulous while doing it.
