When celebrities walk down the red carpet, it's not just their outfit that glistens but also their skin. It's one of the most notable things fans notice whenever they see their favourite stars, both on and off TV. That's why celebrities work extra hard to maintain their radiant skin. Because of this, they are able to carry themselves with confidence! Watch this video to see how confident Gabriella Wilde is!



So if you want to get skin like your favourite celebrities and attain their red carpet confidence, here are 5 celebrity skincare secrets to know and add to your beauty regimen. 

--------------------------

Keep A Positive Mindset





Gabriella Wilde is a timeless beauty. In an interview when she recently signed the contract as Estée Lauder's newest face she said: "They (other Estée Lauder ambassadors) all inspired me and now I hope to inspire others". With a mindset like that, you'll definitely radiate something other than glowing skin--you'll also be a beacon to all things positive. Remember: beauty is inside and out!

Celebrities have an all-access pass to the best of the best when it comes to skincare products. Reputable brands like Estée Lauder offers Nutritious Vitality8 Range that gives radiance and glow from within to maintain a radiant skin. They also keep in mind the quality of ingredients, making sure that they're getting what is compatible to their skin type and to their current skin situation. 



Stick To A Strict Diet




Most celebrities seldom eat junk food or have too much to drink because it may cause acne and other skin blemishes--which would be a big problem if they're appearing on TV the next day. They practice self-control when it comes to their diet and stick to eating the good stuff, like fruits with antioxidants, grains and oats for fibre, and lean meat for protein. 



Protection From The Sun




There's a reason why we always see celebrities wearing hats and shades. And nope, it's not just because they don't want to be seen by the crowd. It's because they're also protecting themselves from the sun. They know that the sun's rays are harmful and take their sun protection seriously in their everyday life. 



Let Skin Breathe




Celebrities wear heavy makeup almost everyday because they're always taping for shows, appearing on interviews, or shooting for a film. The best thing they do for their skin is to let it breathe every once in a while so that the skin's natural oils come out and their pores are not always clogged. However, if the need arises and they really need to put makeup on, they only put an ample amount for a sheer and light coverage.

Summer is the season for dewy, hydrated skin that is smooth, plump, and moisturised. It's also the time for that no-makeup makeup look for that effortless Summer style. It would be great if we could all say that our skin looks flawless the moment we wake up; but there are just some days when we need a little bit more help in our skincare regimen.

So here are a few tips on how you can give yourself a hydrating skincare boost and get your skin primed for summer and beyond.

--------------------------

Hydrate From The Inside


When you think of the term hydration, you naturally think of water. So drinking water through the day is key if you want soft, supple, and hydrated skin. You may even add a couple of slices of lemon to freshen up the taste (best thing about this, lemon water is also a great way to cleanse your body). You can also up your water intake through other sources such as fresh fruits likes Watermelon, Cucumber, and Berries.
Cut Down On Caffeine & Sodium


Nothing dries out your skin more than caffeine or a high-sodium diet. So drinks like coffee and caffeinated tea; and snacks like chips and processed food pull water away from your body. Excessive intake may lead to dehydration that results in sallow, dull skin. But if you absolutely need to have your morning cup of coffee or tea, ensure that you follow it up with at least a glass of water to cut down its dehydrating properties. 


Focus On Hydrating Skincare

Complement your new healthy (and well-hydrated) lifestyle with a skincare regimen that is focused on pumping moisture back into your skin for a healthy radiance. Start by first gently exfoliating your skin every few days to get rid of any dry patches. Then with a clean face, layer skincare products that offer hydrating results such as the Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 skincare range. The combination of its 8 powerful ingredients result in skin that looks youthful, vibrant and nourished--with visible results in just 8 days. It's great for those looking to give their skin a quick boost.


Sheet Masks


When your skin needs a good boost at night (and for those times when you just want to have a relaxing treat after a long day), a hydrating sheet mask is your best friend. It gives your skin a quick pick-me-up and can be done any time of the day--either before bed or in the morning before your makeup routine. When your skin is feeling particularly dry and stressed, a sheet mask will quickly plump it back with moisture for a glowing and radiant complexion.


Hydrating At-Home Facials


For those days when you're in between facial appointments, give your skin the hydrating boost it needs through at-home facial masks made with natural ingredients. Give these homemade mask recipes from Clozette Ambassador Crystal Phuong a try. All you need are a couple of tomatoes as the base ingredient. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before rinsing.

If a product is cheaper and does an equal (and at times better job) than a highend product, it's definitely something to rave about. After all, who doesn't love a good deal? 


So here's to proving that a makeup hoarding habit doesn't have to be expensive. Bask in the wonderful world of makeup without having to break the bank with these 3 drugstore dupes.


--------------------------


Urban Decay NAKED Palette & MUA Undressed Palette




Urban Decay's NAKED Palette (US$54) is a cult product, with beauty girls everywhere impressed with its pigmentation, colour selection, and creamy blendability. But if you're looking for something that comes at a fraction of its cost and has a similar colour selection (a mix of nude shimmers and mattes), then check out the MUA Undressed Palette ($7). While the eyeshadows may not be as creamy to the touch as the NAKED Palette, the colours are pretty spot-on with decent pigmentation.

Anastasia Brow Wiz & Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil




There's no doubt that the Anastasia Brow Wiz (US$21) is one of the best brow product out in the market today. Its slim, precise tip allows you to draw the most natural brow shape and create the illusion of texture. But if you're on the budget, give the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow (US$4) a try. It has an equally silky smooth texture to define and shape your brows. In fact, we may actually like this more for its angled precision that makes it easier to create defined and well-shaped brows.


The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer vs e.l.f Baked Highlighter




If you love highlighters as much as we do, then you'll love this dupe. The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer (US$24) is a honey-hued highlighter that adds a pop of sheen to your cheekbones for a subtle glow. It's also probably one of the most talked about highlighters in the beauty world (other than Hourglass' Ambient Light Powder). For a cheaper alternative, turn to e.l.f Baked Highlighter in Moon Pearl (US$3) for a pretty close dupe--the only difference is that e.l.f's is a bit cooler toned. But as a whole, both products give that sheer, lit-from-within glow that lasts.
