With prom, graduation and wedding season underway, the celebrities prepping for Met Gala aren’t the only ones who need to look their best! Letting us in on some of their skin care secrets are the facialists behind the glows of celebs like Kate Bosworth and Behati Prinsloo. Find out how you can get your best skin yet, too!
We are counting down the hours until every fashionable face in Hollywood hits the Met Gala red carpet in NYC. But, before the detailed gowns, polished hairstyles and gorgeous makeup looks go on, the skin care experts are called in to make sure all of our favorite celebs are sporting smooth, bright complexions.
Just because you aren’t off to the Met Gala doesn’t mean you can’t achieve a red carpet-worthy glow. Ahead of the big night, celebrity facialists Georgia Louise, Tracie Martyn and Joanna Vargas shared the products everyone at home can use to get their most radiant complexion yet in time for everything from your graduation to your sister’s wedding.
With supermodel Behati Prinsloo as one of her clients, Elemis Consulting Facialist Georgia Louise is an expert when it comes to glowing skin both at her spa and at home. While she recommends her clients come in for three facials over the course of three weeks leading up to an event like the Met Gala, she also says you can perfect your skin at home with some simple switch-ups and additions to your beauty routine.
First, she recommends you switch to a daily oil cleanser like Elemis Nourishing Omega Rich Cleansing Oil, which she says deep cleans the skin without leaving it dry or disrupting its pH balance. To keep skin super hydrated for a dewy glow, she says to use a hydrating overnight mask while you sleep three times a week and drink plenty of water. For resurfacing the skin, Louise says to use a peel like the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel one week prior to the event to smooth and soften the skin.
Meanwhile, actress Allison Williams turned to organic products from facialist Tracie Martyn in preparation for the Met Gala. If you have sensitive skin or suffer from breakouts, her Complexion Savior helps to calm irritation and redness while killing acne causing bacteria. Then there’s actress Kate Bosworth and model Karlie Kloss, who are known for their crystal clear complexions. Both ladies visited with Joanna Vargas at her 5th Avenue spa in NYC before the Met Ball. If you can’t make an appointment with Joanna, her skin care line, which includes products like her Rejuvenating Serum and Vitamin C Face Wash, can be used daily to brighten, purify and restore the skin.
