Trends That Celebrities Are Embracing For Younger, More Beautiful Skin
Beauty influencers like Katie Jane Hughes, Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Aniston are showing the extent to which celebrities are redefining the beauty game, sharing ‘secrets’ to beautiful, young looking skin that glows from within. From microfocused ultrasound therapy to collagen-boosting Fraxel lasers, the latest therapies are taking a ‘more than skin deep’ focus, encouraging skin to heal itself and rejuvenate from within. If you are keen to turn back the hands of time and have skin that is smooth, illuminated and firm, the following celebrity-inspired trends may be right up your street.
Activated Charcoal Masks
Kim K, Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley are just a few celebrities who have shared their passion for activated charcoal masks. Charcoal, also used as a teeth whitener, is known for its ability to soak up toxins and pull out trapped dirt from pores. A great way to experience the magic of this ingredient is to try Karuna’s Cleanmud Face Mask, which cleans skin profoundly and leaves it with a refined, refreshed feel.
Adaptogens are compounds obtained from plants that help the body resist physical, chemical and biological stressors. Ashwagandha, Asian ginseng, rhodiola and reishi are just a few of the most commonly consumed adaptogens, but they also make an excellent addition to skincare products. Nowadays, beauty influencers like Rachel Tee Tyler are including adaption products in their list of must-have beauty products. Tee Tyler has spoken about Youth to the People’s adaptogen soothing and hydrating mist, for instance, which calms redness, improves skin tone, and is packed with hyaluronic acids, adaptogens, antioxidants and peptides. Adaptogen products (especially mists) are a crucial component of skin routines for those with reactive, sensitive skin that tends to succumb to redness or tightness.
Microfocused Ultrasound Treatments
Jennifer Aniston is a big fan of laser treatments for youthful skin, and Ulthera (or Microfocused Ultrasound therapy) is a favorite at the moment. This treatment essentially involves the application of an ultrasound device to skin. The device heats the deeper layers of skin, causing ‘microtraumas’ that the skin reacts to by producing collagen and elastin - the basic building blocks of skin.
Radiofrequency Treatments For Scarring And Rejuvenation
Fractora is a highly popular treatment touted by Real Housewives stars such as Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer and Luan De Lesseps. It is used on young and more mature skin types alike, since it has a wide range of benefits - including the treatment of active acne and the stimulation of collagen. Fractora improves firmness, brightens skin, targets pigmentation spots, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces the size of pores. Thus, it is big among celebrities who are after that spotless finish in photographs.
Celebrities and beauty influencers have been calling the shots in beauty lately, sharing ‘secrets’ that everyday beauty lovers can easily try out. From Fractora laser treatments for acne to Ulthera for skin smoothening, there are a plethora of treatments that tackle aging from within. Skincare products, meanwhile, are harnessing the power of antioxidants and adaptogens in an attempt to detoxify skin and help fight the damage caused by free radicals.
