Love them or hate them celebrities have great ability to inspire and influence average Joes like me. I am drawn to reading the celebrity beauty tips (especially if they are natural and simple) and some I find very intriguing and some make me cringe. Here are just a few celebrity beauty tips that I have heard of and my opinions on them.
- Merinda Kerr – Rosehip Oil.
This fierce lady is the head of a successful natural beauty brand named Kora Organics so when she gives skincare advice it is probably going to be something you will want to take note of! She has mentioned before that she is a fan of Rosehip Oil and I must say I am too! Rosehip oil is a wonderful healing oil that is chock full of vitamins and antioxidants making it anti-aging and a fantastic emollient. Just a few drops on a cleansed face and you are one step closer to radiant healthy skin.
- Scarlett Johansson – Lemon Juice.
There is no denying that Scarlett Johansson is lovely, this tip however is not. Lemon juice is full of vitamin C which is great for evening out skin tone but it is also extremely irritating to the skin and will make your skin sting and look red and sore, in my opinion add your lemon juice to your sea food and invest in a vitamin C serum for your skin.
- Behati Prinsloo – Rosewater.
If only I could be as cool and effortless as this Victoria Secret model, and staying true to form her skin care tip is easy, affordable and smells divine. Rosewater is a lovely product to use as an all-natural toner or just to boost your hydration throughout the day while smelling like a summer breeze.
- Adrianna Lima – Avocado Hair Mask.
Adriana Lima has been a super model for a long time and now that she has hit her mid-thirties she looks more gorgeous than ever. one of the many things I envy about her are her lovely silky locks so I was delighted to hear that she keeps it beautiful and healthy with a DIY avocado mask that she whips up herself. Apparently you just mash up an avo and stick it in your hair for 20 minutes before washing it out. Avocado is very rich in oils and Vitamin E which makes it healing and nourishing to the scalp while helping to lubricate and protect hair. That being said I would rather eat my avo with a bit of Sarlett’s lemon juice mmmmmm.
- Blake Lively – Coconut Oil Hair Treatment.
Blake Lively has gorgeous hair and apparently keeps it that way by adding a small amount of coconut oil to her hair prior to washing it. The practice of oiling hair before shampooing it out is commonly referred to as “pre poo” treatments around the internet. I love treating my hair with coconut oil because it is a uniquely penetrative oil that helps protect hair from protein loss and damage and keep it silky and moisturised. Applying coconut oil to the scalp can also help fight dandruff and dry scalp. If you would like to read more about this topic you can refer to my blog post about the pre poo method here.
- Gwyneth Paltrow – Dry Brushing.
Gwyneth Paltrow is the poster woman for aging gracefully in my opinion, and as a lady that knows more than a few things about natural skin care I take her opinions very seriously. When I heard that she is also a fan of dry brushing I beamed, I am FINALLY one of the cool kids. . . . then again probably not. My lack of cool aside, dry brushing has many benefits for the skin including stimulating circulation and exfoliating the skin not to mention it feels awesome. Simply use your brush to make short invigorating strokes. Always brush towards your heart, I like to start at my feet and work my way up, just remember to avoid delicate areas like the chest and face. Do this a couple of times a week to reveal beautiful skin fit for a magazine cover, or a selfie. If you would like to read about other body care tools I recommend just click here.
