The skin of celebrities is an object of envy. Think of an A-list celebrity. Their faces are plastered almost everywhere. Wherever you look, there they are, looking flawless, spotless, and zit-free as ever. It almost makes you think if they’re another species that’s immune to P. acnes. Only there’s so much going on behind the camera that you don’t know about. Celebs get all kinds of treatments for that perfect skin.
Surprise, surprise, celebrities are, in fact, humans. They do break out, and the bacteria responsible for it, unfortunately, hasn’t gone extinct (yet!). Seeing a celeb with skin issues makes you think, ‘oh, so they’re like the rest of us, at least I am not alone.’ That’s a comforting thought, even if at the behest of a celeb’s skin woes. But even if celebs do have a bout of acne, you’ll see their skin looking flawless in a commercial or movie or whatever. And there you are, dealing with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and/or scarring with a new pimple on the horizon. What are they doing so differently?
Let’s Name Names
Strutting on the red carpet of the Golden Globes, Kendall Jenner was seen with a noticeable flare-up of acne along her lower cheek. To this, she said, “never let that shit stop you!” To that, we say amen! She has opened up about struggling with acne on various occasions. It’s not just her, but Lili Reinhart, Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Lucy Hale, Taylor Hill, Zendaya, Lorde, and Ariana Grande, all have had to struggle with breakouts.
It’s even worse for celebrities sometimes because they have to cake on makeup, with no respite for their skin, especially if they’re rushing from one shoot to another. Coming home late and tired at night, it can be a struggle to remove the makeup. Among males, Brad Pitt, Justin Bieber, Daniel Radcliffe, Adam Levine, and many others have had skin issues.
You see these when you hyper-zoom in their photos or sometimes when a celeb just posts a simple no-filter selfie of themselves. A lot of the time, the skin of the celebs ends up looking like porcelain or glass. But the truth is that every skin has texture, and that’s just the magic of filters, so don’t have unrealistically high expectations of your skin.
Popular Cosmetic Treatments Among Celebrities for Perfect Skin
When your face is your brand, you are looking into all kinds of latest treatments that can provide a quick fix to your skin problems. These are not exclusive to celebrities. Us common folks can also get them, only if we knew about them in the first place. Plastic surgeons at Longevita listed the most common treatments among celebrities as:
Botox and Fillers
They are most helpful with signs of ageing; add volume to the sinking areas, rid you of wrinkles and fine lines across the face. Moreover, Botox even prevents wrinkles from deepening further. And so, it’s only natural that celebrities flock to aesthetic clinics for these treatments.
They feel the pressure to always stay ageless, especially when the eye of the camera notices the slightest change in their pore size! And also because olive oil doesn’t work for everyone the same way it did for J-Lo. Cindy Crawford, Kat Perry, Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian, Kaley Cuoco, Kylie Jenner, and Chrissy Tiegen are all celebs that have openly admitted to getting fillers and Botox.
PRP Facial with Microneedling
Also known as vampire facial. In this, the celebs own blood is taken for the extraction of platelet-rich plasma. This is then slathered on the face. And the micro-needling ensures better penetration of the product while stimulating the production of collagen. Definitely good for treating PIH, scars, and reducing signs of ageing. Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Keira Maguire, and supermodel Bar Refaeli are just a few names who have gotten this procedure for glowing skin.
Your skin naturally peels, but chemical peeling is like taking things into your hands. It peels the outermost layer of the skin to reveal a more youthful skin underneath. This is also good for hyperpigmentation and signs of ageing. Jennifer Anniston, Gwenyth Paltrow, Courteney Cox, and Emily Ratajkowski have enjoyed the benefits of chemical peels.
Are These Treatments Expensive?
Well, they certainly don’t have to be. If you go to clinics where Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner get their procedures done, it’ll cost you a pretty penny. That automatically raises the price. But you can get these procedures done at affordable prices since, now, there’s way more competition in the cosmetic industry.
