Celebrities may seem glowy and flawless in every situation, however for many, this is just the result of expensive beauty products, a talented makeup artist, handy airbrushing and flattering lighting. However, for dedicated celebrity spotters like us, it’s easy to pick out the ones who are either blessed or work at having superb skin:
- Lucy Liu
At 47, this actress has maintained her glowing skin very well. According to Lucy, foregoing caffeine is one of her beauty secrets. Instead, she drinks a lot of water. (We guess she hasn’t seen the research that shows that caffeine is chock-ful of antioxidants and when prepared with the right concentration in a cream, can even help minimize the appearance of cellulite.)
- Liv Tyler
Liv’s skin seems so flawless and uniform that she sometimes looks like the “after” version of a shot worked heavily in Photoshop. But shots of her without makeup suggests this is just how she looks—lucky her! She also is a huge fan of sunscreen, which is a smart idea to prevent wrinkles and discoloration.
- Reese Witherspoon
Reese is a fair-skinned beauty who also doesn’t scrimp on the sunscreen, which is why she practically looks like the young starlet who charmed the world in Legally Blonde back in 2001.
- Halle Berry
Still spectacular in her 40`s, Halle has been a star since the early 90s and doesn’t look much different from when she first burst on the scene. The secret to her spectacular skin is textbook care: she regularly uses cleanser, moisturizer and eye cream. She also makes sure to get a facial once a week that uses lactic and malic acids, along with an oxygen mask.
- Ashton Kutcher
At 38, he still retains much of that boyish look he had when he became a heartthrob on That 70s Show. While some speculate his smooth skin comes from some Botox, his overall look suggests he’s using exfoliators regularly, with maybe some microdermabrasion treatments. Regardless, it’s clearly working for him.
- Jennifer Love Hewitt
Though she’s close to 40 (age 37), Jennifer still looks spectacular. Some of her beauty fixes are unconventional (like toothpaste for acne), but mostly she sticks to the staples of exfoliation and moisturizers.
- Ryan Reynolds
The Deadpool star turns 40 this far, but still looks as baby-faced as he did during his Van Wilder Days. Is it natural or did he have some help? Some dermatologists suspect he’s had some Botox, maybe some fillers—but it also looks like he protects himself from the sun and does regular skin maintenance.
Beyonce seems blessed with perfect skin, but she also works at it, smearing Aquaphor on before going to bed for maximum moisturizing. She also uses plenty of sunscreen and stays hydrated.
- Hayden Panettiere
Hayden is still young, but judging from her routine (sunscreen, water, proper cleansing) and just how she looks, she is well on track to maintaining that fresh-faced look well into her forties and beyond.
- Nicole Kidman
While she’s not 100% the stunning beauty from 1991’s Days of Thunder, Nicole is quite close. She credits this to her organic diet, swimming, Aquaphor and Crème Le Mer.
