That ubiquitous glow that all our favourite celebrities have is something all women crave. From Jennifer Lopez and Cate Blanchett to Halle Berry and Naomi Watts, film stars simply glow both on and off the red carpet. I’m not going to kid you, it takes some serious dedication to get beautiful skin. But, even if you are not naturally blessed with glowing skin, there are plenty of things you can do to get that film star sheen. Hollywood and beyond is home to an incredible array of skin and makeup professionals who will work your skin into a luminous glow. So much so, that you’ll want to move them in. There will be lifestyle habits you need to change, healthy eating plans you need to adopt, and a few makeup tricks to learn along the way. Want that film star glow? Read on to discover how to get the ultimate in luminosity.
You are What You Eat And Drink
You’re going to hate me for bringing up a cliché, but it is true. What you put into your body reflects on the outside. Celebrities make it paramount to adopt a seriously strict health and wellness regime. If you haven’t got paparazzi hanging outside your door 24/7 you can have a less tight leash. But do keep in mind that healthy eating and drinking is beneficial to your skin. Don’t believe me? Try drinking the recommended eight glass of water for two weeks and you will notice a difference. Dehydration causes dry skin, brittle nails and dry hair. Drinking more water will plump up your skin and get you on the way to that healthy glow. Hydrating your skin will improve its elasticity and delay the signs of wrinkles. You also want to be eating water-rich foods such as watermelon, cucumber and pineapple. Raw fruits such as these are anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and will cleanse your skin. Pineapple offers antioxidant benefits and a nice dose of vitamin C to help prevent radicals and get your skin glowing. Watermelon, which is made up of up to 92% water, boosts your immune system and gives you a glow. Starting to make sense?
But the quest for youthful skin isn’t just about your diet. As the years start creeping up, age or skin management programmes are often a great way to maintain your healthy glow. Cenegenics is an age management programme you may want to join. Cenegenics uses the latest technology to develop a personalised medical regime tailored to your needs. Another one to look out for is Jan Marini who provide a science-based skin care system that will improve wrinkles and fine lines. Their products contain concentrated retinol, antioxidants and resurfacing agents. And Chris James Mind Body recommend their 12 Day Cleanse for a healthier, slimmer radiant ‘you’.

Film stars have access to all the latest technology and skincare secrets. It’s worth investing in a recommended skincare brand if you want to see glowing results.

Last on our list of ways to get the superstar glow, is the vampire facelift. Don’t worry; the process isn’t as ‘True Blood’ as it sounds! Celebrity fans include Kim Kardashian, Bar Rafaeli and Anna Friel and they seem to have survived the process. This cutting-edge facial rejuvenation treatment requires vials of your own blood to be taken from your arm and then injected back into your face. The procedure is said to boost collagen and deliver a smooth and youthful glow. It takes about 45 minutes to conduct the treatment with three sessions needed every four weeks and then once a year for maintenance. If you’re serious about the superstar glow, it may be time to consider going over to the dark side.
