Beauty and skincare tips from celebrities who prefer natural

For some people looking beautiful is a job. So it goes without saying that professionals who rely on their looks know a thing or two about skincare. Here’s what we discovered by delving into the beauty-care habits of actresses we all admire.

Take-outs from Cate Blanchett’s skincare routine

Looking gorgeously luminous is something Cate Blanchett does exceedingly well, so what can you draw from her skincare experience?

  • - Cate experienced melasma, a type of hormonal hyperpigmentation, when she had her first child. She got onto the problem using nature-based skincare from Japan and soon had the pigmentation under control.[1] More about switching to natural skincare.
  • Cleansing is super-important to Cate. She’s quoted as saying “skin is the largest organ in your body, and we put so much garbage on it, and we don’t wash it off properly, and then we wonder why it’s clogged.” More about cleansing.
  • - With skin described by Judi Dench as “looking like a white peach”, Cate stays away from the sun. She wears lots of sunscreen. [2]

Super-simple skincare tips inspired by Angelina Jolie

As an 11-year-old, Angelina learned this tip from a dermatologist:  Keep your products and routine as natural and simple as possible.  She also likes to go without makeup as often as she can. Here are some tips distilled from Angelina’s philosophy. [3]

  • Cleanse properly with a mild, gentle cleanser, use moisturisers with antioxidants, apply sunscreen and, above all, choose natural products that are cruelty-free.
  • A fresh face with a bold red lip and no other noticeable makeup is the impactful look that works for Angelina. She uses simplicity in a powerful way. Maybe it’s time to shake up your makeup with bold simplicity?
  • Brows are everything. A natural, filled-in brow softens the whole face.

Snippets of wisdom that spring from Miranda Kerr’s skincare knowledge

Miranda Kerr has her own organic skincare range, so she’s really pro-natural when it comes to putting stuff on her skin. Here are some ideas derived from Miranda’s approach:[4]

  • Dry brushing all over before your morning shower helps to remove dead skin cells and get circulation going.
  • Double cleansing at night prepares your skin ready for night cream and bed.
  • Miranda believes in moisturising all over twice a day; get stuck in with Okana’s delicious Avocado Smash Body Butter.

Things you can learn from Margot Robbie’s skincare habits

Margot Robbie’s career has gone stellar in recent times, so the spotlight is well and truly on her complexion. Margot admits to dry skin that’s prone to breakouts; she also says she prefers to cleanse her face in the shower. Easy is definitely one of her core values. Here’s a summary of strategies inspired by Margot’s approach to skincare:[5]

  • Exfoliation is super-important, as far as Margot’s concerned. You can mirror her thinking by exfoliating two to three times a week. Cleanse first, then exfoliate every inch of your face, neck and decolletage in the shower.
  • Margot likes a mist toner, rather than the wipe-on kind. Give this a try with our Cucumber + Lettuce toner mist.
  • Margo likes treatment masks, especially leading up to red carpet events. You can make your own using ingredients from your fridge and pantry. Check out our ideas for home-made masks.

Be inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s positive thinking approach to skincare

JLo has a penchant for positive affirmations embroidered on her couch cushions. Rumour has it that she repeats affirmations to herself every day, including “I am youthful and timeless at every age”. [6] Believing in yourself is a powerful beauty tip. If you’re confident, it shows on your face. In LA they call positive thinking about your looks ‘spiritual botox’.

  • - Get in the habit of saying nice things to yourself internally when you look in the mirror, to break the habit of running yourself down.
  • Before you go to sleep, try listening to a self-hypnosis audio that builds self-esteem. These are downloadable from your phone’s app store or you’ll find a bunch on Spotify.
  • Manage stress, because getting anxious and jumpy doesn’t do a thing for your positive frame of mind. When you have a half-hour to spare, go for a walk in a park or do some yoga instead of playing with your phone. A quick digital detox can be very calming. 

Guzzle like Gwyneth – why water is your skin’s best friend

Gwyneth Paltrow is water-obsessed, and she’s not the only one. Nearly every A-lister is a major guzzler of water. However, hydration from the outside is also crucial for beautiful skin. To keep your cells hydrated, take these tips on board:

  • Use an alcohol-free toner after cleansing and follow quickly with an effective moisturiser, to seal in some of that useful moisture.
  • Drink a big glass of water on waking, then before every meal. That will get at least 1.5 litres of water into your body. Top this up further by sipping herbal teas between meals.
