Somehow, celebrities always have flawless skin. That’s partly because their careers depend on it and partly because they have access to some of the best beauty products in the world. While some of the celebs on this list have skincare routines that are pretty expensive, others use age-old hacks that won’t break the bank.
It’s up to you to decide which tips you want to incorporate into your own skincare regimen, but these stars are willing to share what works for them!
Jennifer Lopez Knows That Beauty Starts On The Inside
Jennifer Lopez doesn’t mess around when it comes to skincare. This woman is nearly 50 years old and she still has the skin of a twenty-year-old.
There’s a reason why J Lo looks this good. She told Today, “I never took sun when I was younger. I wasn’t a drinker, I didn’t smoke. But I feel like at the core, it’s like how you feel inside and who you are inside kind of shows on your face.”
Bella Hadid Loves A Face Mask
Bella Hadid loves a good hydrating clay face mask. She told Allure that her mother has a pretty impressive stash of clay masks, and that she likes to borrow a mask or two every now and again. We think that Bella can probably afford her own face masks, but it’s nice that she can share this ritual with her mother.
As far as makeup goes, Bella says, “All you need is eyebrow pencil, bronzer, and mascara, and you’re good. Charlotte Tilbury is the best.”
Cindy Crawford Has Kept Her Skin Fresh For Decades
Cindy Crawford has been able to keep her skin looking fresh for decades. How does she do it? She visits an infrared sauna weekly. She also swears that you are what you eat, and if you put good food into your body, your skin will reap the rewards.
Crawford added, “So there’s no one thing I swear by with food, but I am a big fan of dry brushing. It exfoliates—you can see your skin flying off everywhere. It’s great if it’s the winter and you’re drier. They say it’s really good for circulation and lymphatic drainage, too. “
Kerry Washington Dealt With Eczema
Actress Kerry Washington swears by fish oil pills, green juices, and water. She also chooses not to wear foundation most of the time because she thinks it’s important to let her skin breathe.
Washington said, “I actually had terrible eczema growing up and had to learn how to manage it. I work with a nutritionist because, to me, beauty is an inside-out thing. I take fish-oil pills, drink lots of water, and try not to eat dairy. Those things have really helped my skin.”
Adele Tries Not To Stress About The Little Things
Adele went barefaced on the cover of Rolling Stone recently, proving that she has nothing to hide when it comes to her skin. She says she likes to use sheet masks, but she also doesn’t get too stressed out if she gets a pimple or two.
Adele reflected on her image in the magazine, stating, “Sometimes I’m curious to know if I would have been as successful if I wasn’t plus-size. I think I remind everyone of themselves. Not saying everyone is my size, but it’s relatable because I’m not perfect, and I think a lot of people are portrayed as perfect, unreachable and untouchable.”
Gwyneth Paltrow Keeps It Natural
When it comes to skincare and natural beauty in general, none of us can come close to Gwyneth Paltrow, the queen of Goop herself. This woman knows a thing or two about the beauty industry.
When it comes to her own skin, however, Gwyneth said, “I really believe in sweating. Get the blood going, hydrate, sleep, eat food that’s full of rich nutrients, be around people that you love and make you laugh, have sex! It’s a whole thing.”
Alexis Bledel Steams Her Face With Olive Oil
It seems like Alexis Bledel (AKA Rory from Gilmore Girls) just doesn’t age. This must be some kind of witchcraft.
Alexis said that her skin is so radiant because she keeps to a Mediterranean diet. She also said, “About once a week, I steam my face with pure olive oil. You just get a bowl of hot water, dab a little olive oil on your dry spots, and let it do its work. It’s an old trick that really works and your skin stays soft and line-free.”
Beyoncé’s Makeup Artists Let Us In On His Secrets
Beyoncé hasn’t spoken to the press much about how she wakes up looking flawless, but her makeup artist has done a few interviews about the techniques he uses on his clients.
Queen Bey’s makeup artist, Sir John, said, “I always like to have a huge brush to buff — it’s like my magic eraser. I use it regardless of the foundation or tinted moisturizer to diffuse any lines. Everyone should have one that is only for making sure your makeup is seamless and invisible.”
Catherine Deneuve Has A Sour Solution
French actress Catherine Deneuve has been in the business for a long time. She revealed some of her best beauty tips to Into the Gloss.
Deneuve said, “Every morning I drink lemon juice. It’s not so much that it cleanses anything, but I do think it’s very good for your skin and the whites of your eyes.” Do you think lemon juice could be the key to looking younger for longer?
Zendaya Evaded Puberty
Zendaya Coleman somehow managed to make it through her teenage years in the public eye without ever being photographed with a raging breakout. Her skin looks pretty much pimple-free. So how did she get that glowing skin?
Zendaya told Seventeen, “Less is more when it comes to taking care of your skin. I use makeup-removing wipes, a really good, lightweight moisturizer, and [loads of balm] for my lips. You can’t have chapped lips!”
Chrissy Teigen Is As Honest As Ever
Chrissy Teigen always keeps it real. Recently, she opened up about the toll that constant travel can have on her skin.
Chrissy said, “When I travel is when I take the best care of my skin because I have all the time in the world, and can put on every cream. But, when I come home after a long day, I’m not great about keeping everything up — the serums, the lotions, and the potions that I have — sometimes, I don’t even wash my face. But, I’m nuts about it on an airplane. I go very hard.”
Christy Turlington Burns Has A Thing For Face Oils
Model Christy Turlington Burns knows that beauty starts on the inside. She keeps her skin looking healthy with a well-rounded diet. She also takes supplements containing vitamin C,
Christy said, “I absolutely love face oils: I have dry skin so they get sucked up quickly. Sundari Nighttime Nourishing Oil is one I’ve used it for years and it still feels like pure luxury to apply each night.”
Jada Pinkett Smith Loves A Facial Steam
Jada Pinkett Smith says that the key to her youthful looking skin is a ton of regular tap water and a little bit of hyaluronic acid. She is also a huge proponent of the at home facial steam. Basically, you just boil some water and place it in a large, heatproof bowl.
Then you put your face above the bowl and cover your head with a towel. The steam from the water will open up your pores and help you get the most out of whatever products you apply afterward.
Don’t Follow Lady Gaga’s Lead
Even though Lady Gaga’s skin looks flawless, she actually doesn’t take great care of her skin. She wears sunblock, which is very important, but when it comes to skincare, she doesn’t really have a routine.
I guess she was just born this way… Gaga told People that she goes to bed wearing makeup a lot. She added, “That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.”
Hilary Duff Stays Hydrated
Hilary Duff keeps her skin looking fresh by drinking lots of water, washing her face regularly, and using a few choice products. “I take all my makeup off and wash my face every night,” Duff told InStyle.
She added, “I use Polish by Dr. Lancer every day. He’s my dermatologist and I’m obsessed with him, and he saved my skin when I was pregnant because there are so many things you can’t use and I have horrible breakouts.”
Jamie King Is A La Mer Queen
Jamie King has one simple rule when it comes to skincare: “Always wash your face before bed, even if you don’t want to.”
Jamie also let us in on some of her favorite products which include Essential Herbology, Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water (which is an eye makeup remover), Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate, and La Prairie Cellular Hydralift Firming Mask. Jamie added, “For moisturizer, I obviously love La Mer Soft Cream. The old La Mer was so thick, but the Soft Cream is perfect for me because it’s super hydrating and I have really dry skin.”
Jourdan Dunn Spends Bank On Beauty
Model Jourdan Dunn loves luxury products and skincare services. US Weekly took an inventory of all the products Jourdan uses, and her full beauty kit costs around $1,200. That doesn’t include makeup.
Jourdan said, “I see new things and I’m like, ‘Ooh! Gotta buy it!’… you need different things to protect your skin in the daytime when you’re outside.” Jourdan has a different skin care routine for every day of the week.
Lucy Liu Has A Strict Regimen
Actress Lucy Liu always puts her best face forward.
Liu revealed, “After a long day of filming, I use eye makeup remover. You don’t end up scrubbing and irritating the skin around your eyes—no matter how much makeup you’ve been wearing, then I use soap with a washcloth to wash my face. Afterwards, I mix cream [containing colostrums], aloe vera and a touch of oil together, then massage the mixture into my face.”
Miranda Kerr Started Her Own Beauty Line
Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr’s secret weapon is rosehip oil. It’s full of antioxidants and fatty acids and Miranda says it’s the reason she didn’t develop any stretch marks during her pregnancy.
She also started her own beauty line called Kora “because I was looking for a certified organic skincare line that gave me results and was aesthetically pleasing. I couldn’t find one. I’m not against non-certified products, obviously—I use them all of the time for my job—but I try to minimize my exposure to chemicals.”
Penélope Cruz Knows How To Wax
When asked about her beauty secrets, Penélope Cruz told InStyle that she can’t live without her Vitamix blender. That machine helps her make gazpacho, which she says is her ultimate beauty remedy. Cruz said, “In Spain, we eat gazpacho almost every day, so you get a lot of vegetables in a way that is very delicious.”
Cruz also said that she learned a lot of beauty tips from her parents who used to own a hair salon. Penélope learned how to wax legs at a young age, and she even does it for her famous friends sometimes.
