Every teenager and woman know that our skin is probably our most important asset. We can work on our bodies, exercise our muscles and go on diet, but getting back great skin is never that easy once you stop paying proper attention to it. Film stars and other celebrities understand that too, even though nature may have blessed them with superior looks and – often – good skin.
They will tell you that beauty starts with beautiful skin. We all know that our lifestyle choices such as alcohol, cigarette smoking and too much sun can adversely affect the way our skin looks; the stars understand that too. That is why many of them are on record about good eating habits and the importance of eating lots of greens and superfoods that include, especially, blueberries.
All of them will tell you that 8 glasses of water every day is a must – and the regular use of some great skin care products. We’ll take a look at what some of them have to say about the products they use to ensure their skin never looks dull and tired.
Sarena Williams - No matter how many opponents she has to face on court and no matter the perspiration on her body and face, or how severe the sun can be out there, Serena always has clear, beautiful skin. This, she says, she achieves by doing the basics right. That means drinking lots of water both on and off the court and following the important steps of daily cleansing and moisturizing.
She does mention that she tries to keep things simple and she never uses too much makeup. Well, she does not have to since she has naturally lovely skin. She further believes in a weekly treatment to the Hydra-Lift Golden Eye Treatment Mask from MZ Skin. This mask contains good sources of collagen and hyaluronic acid which are known to help prevent the effects of aging on the skin.
Collagen, of course, is a protein polymer that helps to keep the skin strong and flexible. Together these agents help to slow down early aging of the skin. At Skin Station we offer a whole range of MZ Skin products, including the Hydra-Lift that Sarena recommends. We also have the Hydra-Lift Golden Facial Treatment Mask, as well their famous cleansers and serums to help fight the onset of wrinkles.
Chrissy Teigen & January Jones – Chrissy, the American model who shot to fame in 2010 when she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue makes sure she always follows a routine that includes her favourite shampoo and conditioner, body scrub and the Cleansing Complex from iS Clinical. In fact, she says, she always has 2 bottles of the cleanser when she has to juggle a busy life and different appointments to be absolutely sure that she never runs out of it.
When you look at our website you will indeed see that we stock a whole range of this great brand, which includes the cleanser, but also the very effective Serums they are known for, as well as a moisturizing complex and their Clinical Youth Eye Complex among the choices. January, star of the TV series Last Man on Earth, echoes Chrissy’s sentiments: she always applies the serums from iS – the Super Advanced and Hydra Cool Serums.
Olivia Wilde – Actress and model Olivia has truly lovely skin that she is very proud of. She uses a pre-cleanse oil followed by a hydrating cleanser, regular moisturizer and a few times every week a good Vitamin C Booster. Vitamin C beauty products have become much talked about in beauty circles the last few years.
Next time you buy a good Vitamin C serum, consider the Dr Dennis Gross C + Collagen Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum we have available. It absorbs fast and contains effective sources of collagen amino acids that help aid fighting dullness, dark spots and rough skin texture to promote even skin tone.
Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox & Emma Thompson – These ladies all believe in the effects of the well-known Hyaluron Swisscode Serum that hydrates and moisturises gently to keep skin firm and full. The hyaluronic acid found in the serum penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin to hydrate them while at the same time leaving an invisible film on the outer skin allowing the acid to do its work slowly and effectively in the deeper layers where it moisturizes and rejuvenates.
It is indeed heartening to know that even the most beautiful people out there need the help of those products that we trust to keep our skins lovely and glowing. Feel free to talk to us about our products, or those questions you may have regarding skin care.
