Radiant skin doesn't happen overnight, not even for celebrities. Hollywood starlets have a team of beauty pros to keep them camera-ready year round.
For those of us on a budget, celebrity skincare guru Jenefer Palmer shares her secrets to getting Oscar-worthy skin for any special event.
1 week before:
- Brighten! Applying OSEA’s White Algae Mask for deep hydration will even out skin tones leaving skin bright and tight!
- De-bloat! Reduce facial and stomach bloating by avoiding extra sodium. Your body needs to maintain its proper sodium balance; consuming excess salt leads to fluid retention.
- Scrub! Use OSEA’s Salts of the Earth Scrub three times to soften and heal dry, dehydrated skin. Certified Organic botanical oils and aromatic mineral salts plump up the skin, enticing it to soak up nutrients and look more youthful. (Olivia Wilde says, “This is the best body scrub I've ever used.”)
- Sleep! Make it a priority to go to bed at the same time every night. Getting 8 hours of sleep will reduce tired lines under the eye. Avoid alcohol, caffeine or anything else that disrupts your natural sleep cycle.
3 days before:
- Extract! If you’re going to get a facial with extractions this is the last day to do it. Otherwise, you run the risk of uneven skin.
- Rest! Remember to sleep at least 8 hours with the White Algae Mask on for a flawless complexion.
Day of the event:
- Caffeinate! To reduce puffiness and eye bags soak 2 caffeinated green tea bags in hot water. Let them cool, wring out the excess water and place on your eyes the morning of the event.
