‘Dancing With The Stars’ judge, actress, singer, dancer — is there anything Julianne Hough can’t do? She looks better than ever and she is sharing her fitness and beauty secrets exclusively with us!
Julianne Hough, 27, is stunning inside and out. I recently hung out with the talented performer and she revealed her healthy secrets, her beauty must-haves and more! Read our interview with her below.
Julianne, on behalf of Venus Swirl spoke to HollywoodLife.com exclusively:
Q. What beauty regimen makes you feel the best?
As a dancer and performer, I always need to be ready for the camera. Skincare is critical for that reason, and it’s really important for me to use products that care for my skin… that’s why I’ve always stuck with Venus razors. There’s just something about having smooth legs that makes you feel good!”
Your hair and makeup on DWTS always looks amazing — what’s the collaboration process like with your glam squad?
“It’s quite the process! My hair and makeup artists and stylist are amazing at making every look fresh and different from the last. We have a lot of fun figuring out the inspiration behind each look. All in, it’s about a 2 — 3 hour process. I did not wake up like this!”
What favorite exercise tips do you have to get toned legs?
“I love doing squats and lunges, or jump switches. For toning your inner and outer thighs, I use discs. Keep one foot on the ground in lunge position, and then put your other foot on the disc and move it to the outside making that leg straight.”
Do you ever work out with your friends like Nina Dobrev?
“I love hiking with all of my friends, or taking yoga classes with them! Anything active outdoors is always fun.”
What are your summer beauty tips?
“I love to always have smooth legs in the summer and my go-to has been the Venus Swirl razor lately. I also often turn to my mascara and lip balm for a quick fix, especially when I travel for my tour and shoots.”
Any tips or tricks to styling short hair?
“Don’t be afraid to have messy hair! Because when it’s short and perfectly done, it takes away from having a younger look. If you’re curling your hair, hold the iron diagonally up, and wrap it around, leaving the ends out so that when it comes out, it has a messy beach wave.
Julianne Hough’s Perfect Skin — How To Get The Look
We took a private dance class with Julianne and her brother Derek Hough on July 8 (and struggled to keep up!). It’s important to shower and wash your face after you sweat to prevent breakouts.
To keep her face and body blemish-free, Julianne uses Proactiv+ products. She says: “Using Proactiv has given me the confidence to just go out there and do my best and see what happens! I think I look younger now than I did when I was 18 because I’m not wearing as much makeup. I’m not hiding as much of who I am, and you’re really seeing me for me!”
We are especially obsessed with their Proactiv Deep Cleansing Body Brush, which has a long handle for hard to reach areas like your back. The cost will be $29.95 for members; $45 for non-members, and it’s available at proactivcatalog.com in August — perfect for back to school!
