While you watch your favorite celebrities light up the red carpet this weekend, you can pamper yourself with the same superstar experience. Follow these five simple steps to achieve red carpet-worthy skin without leaving your couch.
1. Firm with microcurrent technology
Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez swear by microcurrent facials to keep their skin looking youthful and radiant. You don’t have to book an appointment at a high-end spa to get this coveted treatment, either. NuFACE offers an at-home device that firms and smooths facial contours with easy, 5-minute treatments. The Trinity Facial Trainer uses microcurrent technology to gently stimulate facial muscles and minimize the signs of aging.
2. Mask for an instant glow
Masking is one essential prep step no celebrity will skip. You’ll probably see more than one #SheetMaskSelfie on Instagram this Sunday so why not take a selfie of your own sheet mask adventure? Not only are they photogenic, sheet masks are also great for your complexion because they distribute concentrated ingredients deep into skin. For a special treat, pamper yourself with Decleor’s Aurabsolu mask. Infused with a blend of essential oils and Jasmine Absolute, this mask refreshes stressed or fatigued skin while restoring luminosity.
3. Give your lips some love
The key to gorgeous lipstick is soft, smooth and hydrated lips—just ask any celebrity makeup artist. Give your smile the star treatment with lip patches. These treatments offer all the same benefits of a sheet mask, but with ingredients specifically targeted for your pout. We especially love patchology’s FlashPatch Lip Gels, which soften the appearance of fine lines and enhance lip shape and volume with anti-aging actives like peptides, niacinamide and green tea extract. You’ll have more youthful-looking lips in as little as five minutes!
4. Pamper your tired eyes
The eyes are often the first place to show signs of aging so it’s no surprise that this is an area celebs like to target. When eye cream just won’t cut it, pick up a pair of eye patches. Klorane’s Smoothing and Relaxing Patches are some of our favorites. These crescent-shaped treatments soothe, brighten and refresh the eye area with cornflower while reducing the appearance of fine lines and under-eye puffiness with chamomile.
5. Don’t forget your feet!
Red carpet beauty isn’t just for the face. Those stunning heels and strappy sandals wouldn’t look the same without a pedi. Skip the salon and spa appointment and pamper yourself at home. patchology’s PoshPeel Pedicure is a favorite of ours here at LovelySkin. Beauty editors and bloggers alike have been raving about this pedicure treatment since it hit the market last fall. This peel features a blend of alpha hydroxy acids, including glycolic, salicylic, lactic and citric acids, to gently exfoliate rough soles and heels.
