10+ Celeb Secrets You Can Use to Bulletproof Your Beauty and Look Decades Younger
Some celebs like Jared Leto or Eva Mendes look like they were frozen 2 decades ago. Of course, genes play a crucial role, but still, there are some little secrets on top of this. For example, Natalie Portman came to a conclusion about which diet is better for her — vegan or vegetarian.
We at Bright Side looked through some celeb’s secrets that help them to save their youthful skin and we would like to share them with you.
1. Jared Leto has a special attitude toward a vegan diet and sleep.
Jared Leto has followed a vegan diet for over 20 years and it works pretty well, as he says. But actually, he sometimes cheats. Leto calls himself a “cheagan.” He’ll allow himself to eat sweets and fatty food if the temptation is big. But there is one thing that he never craves and that’s meat.
Jared is 49, but he looks decades younger. His other secret is that there’s a lot of sleep
involved: “If you travel long haul a lot or don’t sleep much, looking young not going to last very long, that’s for sure.”
2. Jennifer Lopez uses olive oil as the main extract in her beauty routine.
Jennifer Lopez is an amazing woman who practically hasn’t changed through the decades. She shares that every day she repeats an affirmation: “I’m youthful and timeless at every age.” Staying beautiful is like a special philosophy for her.
Her secret is that she avoided beauty injections when she was young: “And I just wonder
what would’ve happened to me if I would’ve started Botox at 23, what I would look like right now. My face would be a totally different face today.”
Besides, one of her favorite products is olive oil. When she was creating her beauty line Jennifer decided that this extract would be the base.
3. Sandra Bullock follows her aesthetician’s advice about cleansing.
Sandra Bullock has professionals who take care of her skin. Her aesthetician says: “Proper cleansing, I believe in cleansing. I believe in exfoliating the skin, but in a way that is very gentle, yet at the same time potent.” After this procedure, she recommends using a toner because it balances your pH.
Also, she suggests one product at night: “It’s not a scrub. It’s called a texturizer. There’s glycolic acid, lactic acid, and there are little beads, which are vitamin E.”
4. Ashton Kutcher practices a special fighting system.
Ashton Kutcher confesses: " I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about." And as a tool for doing this, he chose a special workout tactic. He practices Krav Maga which is a military self-defense and fighting system.
Kutcher says he can eat whatever he wants, but at least once a year he is on a fasting diet of just water, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice.
5. Keanu Reeves prefers exercises with reps instead of heavy weights.
Reeves has been in his career as an actor for over 35 years, but he still basically looks the same as he did at the beginning. As an actor he needs to look good, so he created his own training diet: “Low sodium, low fat, and the night before a big fight sequence, I still eat a steak.”
To be in shape for John Wick, Keanu did a high-volume routine with low-impact exercises and limited rest without heavy weights. Just performing thousands of reps. And we can see that he got excellent results this way.
6. Charlize Theron has her own beauty ritual every day.
In an interview, Charlize shared that she wasn’t taking care of her face that much when she was in her 20s and 30s. Now it’s different. When she wakes up she rinses her face and puts on sunscreen with SPF 30.
At night she uses a serum, eye cream, and a really good moisturizer. As one of her favorite rituals, she says she likes sitting in a hot water. Besides this, Charlize eats plant-based raw foods and does Pilates.
7. Natalie Portman chooses to be a vegan instead of a vegetarian.
It’s difficult to believe but the little girl from the movie Leon is already 39. One of the most interesting things that Natalie Portman has discovered for her beauty is that being a vegetarian is not for her: “I’m vegan and I found my skin is much, much better than when I was a vegetarian. I cut out dairy and eggs, and I never had a breakout afterward.”
For cosmetics Natalie pics organic products and she likes an eye cream that has rose oil.
8. Gabrielle Union is a fan of camellia oil.
Whatever Gabrielle doing to stay young, it’s working. She is 48 but her skin looks perfect. Recently she has opened up about one of her secrets. She says that she thought that it wasn’t good to treat oily skin with oily products. But someone recommended that Gabrielle use camellia oil: “I’m not a paid spokesperson, but this oil is amazing.”
9. Paul Rudd always uses sunscreen.
Paul Rudd has succeeded in having a babyface even at 51. Although he doesn’t talk much about his secrets, sometimes he shares the reason behind his youthful skin. The actor says that he is not a fan of tanning. It’s crucial for him to wear sunscreen and moisturize his face.
10. Tyra Banks recommends waiting 8 weeks for results when you use anti-aging products.
Tyra Banks recommends that women avoid some mistakes when using beauty products. For wintertime, she suggests using a cream blush instead of a powder because it’s more hydrating for dry skin and protects better against wind chapping.
Also, she says to not be in a rush to throw away your anti-aging products if you feel like they aren’t working. Usually, it takes at least 8 weeks to see a result.
11. Eva Mendes skips her morning cleanse.
As an experienced person in beauty routines, Eva says that she skips cleansing her face in the morning: “Ok, so this may sound gross but I save time by not washing my face in the morning. It’s one less thing to do and I find that water is drying to my face.” Actually, it can be a good thing for irritated and dry skin. Specialists say that over washing is also bad.
