They say that your skin is in its best condition during your 20s. You’re in that sweet spot between teen acne and early wrinkles. So don’t take your supple skin for granted. Start doing these four skincare habits to maintain your youthful glow well into your 30s and beyond.

Moisturise


  

You’ve probably heard this a million times. But, yes, you should moisturise. Using the right moisturiser maintains your skin balance and deeply hydrates the skin.

Protect




Every day, our skin deals with a lot of external aggressors that contribute to the process of ageing. Over time, our skin can have a duller appearance due to pollution and excessive sun exposure. So what can you do? Protect what you’ve got. Choose an active UV protector that will surely shield your skin. 


Improve 




We may not know it, but our skin is definitely changing by the minute. Hidden UV spots may be multiplying without our knowledge. That’s why it’s good to be sure that you’re eliminating deep-seated imperfections to achieve that spotless, radiant aura. Upgrade your skin care arsenal by adding an active essence into your beauty regimen.

Illuminate 




Flaunt your best skin everyday with a lightweight CC Cream. Unlike traditional foundations, CC Creams include anti-ageing ingredients for prevention and maintenance, while still effectively correcting imperfections. Achieve that natural-looking gorgeous complexion in no time.

We are often in awe of how celebrities look so good. They say it takes a village for our favourite actresses, models and TV personalities to achieve the looks we see on them, but apparently, it also takes a little weird beauty trick to get the job done for some.


If you’ve ever wondered if there are tricks celebrities do to maintain their appearance, well, you’re in luck. Here are the rituals some celebrities do. A little warning, though: they’re weird.


Gwyneth Paltrow


Paltrow is all about going natural and botanical for her product choices. She took it a step further, though, when she involved bees in the equation. Yes, bees. You may have already seen a product or two containing bee venom as it is believed to help get rid of inflammation and scarring on the skin. Paltrow, however, don’t just put a cream containing bee venom on her face —she actually gets herself stung by a bee.


Catherine Zeta-Jones


A classic beauty, Zeta-Jones is admired for just about all of her features. If you’re a fan of her luscious locks, though, you don’t need to look further than your pantry to achieve a similar look. The actress washes her hair with beer and honey to condition her hair.


Alessandra Ambrosio


We all want nice, healthy hair. So getting rid of split ends is no question. We usually go for a trim at a salon when we want to address the situation, but this Victoria’s Secret Angel does something more drastic — she sets her hair (well, her split ends) on fire. It's a treatment called Velaterapia.


Scarlett Johansson


If you’ve ever wondered how to achieve Scarlett Johansson’s clear complexion, it’s time to go to the supermarket and buy yourself a bottle of apple cider vinegar. The actress swears by using the condiment often used for salads as a facial wash.



Victoria Beckham


Beckham is known for her impeccable style, but it’s not unusual to admire her for her beauty, too. So if you wanna know how the former Spice Girl continues to look stunning, ask your facialist for placenta. The designer swears that a placenta facial is the secret to her clear, firm skin.
