Skin Care Hollywood Style, Starlets’ 6 Beauty Secrets

by Dr. Grace Angel

1. AVOID EXCESSIVE ALCOHOL

Alcohol, as we all know, causes dehydration. “Going to bed after a bender without properly treating your face is like tanning in Cozumel for a week without using sunscreen,” says one famous starlet known for her work on High School Musical.

Abusing alcohol will, over time, decrease the body’s ability to produce collagen and reduces skin’s firmness and elasticity, which will cause dry, sagging, wrinkled skin.

2. LIMIT YOUR EXPOSURE TO THE SUN

This one is essential and simple. However, if you must venture into the light use a high powered, high quality sun block. “On my face and neck I use spf 45 and on the rest of my body I use spf. That way I’m protected but I can still get a nice tan,” says a famous former Mickey Mouse Club diva.

3. DON’T DRINK COFFEE

Caffeine is nature’s diuretic and coffee contains it in spades. It causes the body to get rid of necessary liquids and nutrients. Jesus-lovin’ Country music singers agree, “When I drink too much coffee, my teeth become noticeable stained and I can swear that the slight wrinkles around my eyes start developing into crows feet.”

4. EAT LOTS OF CITRUS AND VEGETABLES

Spinach and other leafy greens contains vast amounts of antioxidants that aid skin health. Citrus like oranges and grapefruit have vitamin C, which boosts the skin’s production of collagen. And collagen production is essential to skin elasticity, firmness and prevents the onset of premature wrinkling.

5. DRINK 10 GLASSES OF WATER

“I drink at least 10 glasses of water a day, and really notice that my skin looks dull, gray, and vapid when I don’t,” says a certain hotel-fortune heiress.

6. USE A HIGH QUALITY NIGHT CREAM

Using a night cream is the simplest yet most necessary part of your beauty routine. Choose a night cream with proven age-fighters like vitamin C, peptides, and retinol. These compounds applied at night will reduce the effect of aging and the environment on your skin. “Young men always approach me at clubs and at the gym thinking I’m 25. My night cream has allowed me to maintain my youthful skin. These boys obviously haven’t seen my movies from the early 1980’s and would never guess that I’m actually 45,” chuckles a member of Hollywood’s brat pack, who chose, astutely, to remain anonymous.
