The Oscars are one of Hollywood’s biggest nights. Celebrities spend countless hours preparing for the long walk down the red carpet of the Dolby Theater with the hope of achieving glowing skin, flawless make-up, and rave reviews for their look.
To the average person it may seem like a lot of work but getting that red carpet ready skin (think Gwyneth) is easier than you think. The key is to implement a few things into your normal skincare routine that will enhance your skin's radiance and youthful appearance, and also look healthy, smooth and blemish free.
Here are a few tips:
To get a gorgeous glow: Start by hydrating – lots of water. If you can’t make it to the salon or spa for a facial, look for a facial mask with moisturizing properties. It will minimize the appearance of pores, and give you a glowing complexion. Masks with saffron, aloe vera, and kaolin clay are popular among top celebrities. And don’t forget to try our MD Performance® Professional Skin Care Products such as Hydrating Vitamin Mist (https://mdperformance.com/collections/moisturizer/products/hydrating-vitamin-mist )!
Next exfoliate. A great product to gently exfoliate and keep your skin clean is MD Performance’s Jojoba and Green Tea Foaming Scrub (https://mdperformance.com/collections/cleansers ). You can also try a two-step exfoliation starting with a scrub followed by a chemical peel like our Perfect Peel.
To smooth fine lines: There are several good anti-aging products on the market today to smooth fine lines. Look for products which work not only on the surface of the skin, but also in the layers you can’t see. MD Performance® Professional Skin Care products will leave your skin feeling smooth and soft. Over time these products can also lighten sun spots and stimulate collagen production giving you a more youthful appearance. Ask Dr. Bunkis or his staff which products are best for your skin type. https://mdperformance.com/collections/anti-aging
To diminish wrinkles: A topical treatment may not be enough to remove those wrinkles. Botox® or dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® can help with little to no downtime. We have a special Valentine’s offer that may interest you – improve your Lips, Lines and Lashes!
To calm redness: Follow-up exfoliation with a high performance moisturizer like one of our top sellers, BioLipid Hydrating Crème, which is ideal for normal to very dry skin. This will whisk away dead cells and keep shine in check without over-drying. There are several categories of moisturizers to choose from so make sure you pick the one that best suits your skin type. Our other moisturizers include the Oil Free Hydrating Moisturizer for normal to acne prone skin, Avocado CoQ-10 Body Balm for all skin types and the Hydrating Vitamin Mist, a spray for all skin types. https://mdperformance.com/collections/moisturizer
To take away the puffiness: Take wheat and dairy out of your diet and you can remove some of the puffiness and breakouts that may occur the week leading up to an event. Lots of water and fresh juices can also make your skin look more vibrant.
Simple steps every day and regular visits to your skin care professional can help you, and your skin, shine like the star that you really are.
