How To: Get great skin like a celebrity

Get great skin like a celebrity

Not everyone in Hollywood owes their nice complexion to a dermatologist. Here are some homespun beauty secrets you can steal.
You Will Need:
* Sugar
* Extra virgin olive oil
* Liquid vitamin C
* Washcloths
* Bag Balm
* Honey
* Petroleum jelly
* Un-petroleum jelly (optional)

Step 1
Exfoliate your skin with a mixture of sugar and extra virgin olive oil. That's how Christie Brinkley stays so youthful; it's like giving yourself a mini microdermabrasion.

Jessical Biel adds sugar to her regular cleanser when she wants to slough away dead skin.

Step 2
Nourish your skin the way Nicky Hilton does: Massage vitamin C into your face. You can buy it in liquid form in health food stores.

Step 3
Keep your washcloths in the fridge so they're nice and cold when you use them; supermodel Rachel Hunter has said she learned this trick in Japan. It reduces redness and swelling, makes pores appear smaller, gets rid of puffy eyes, and gives your complexion a healthy pink glow.

Step 4
Moisturize like Shania Twain: She finds there's nothing like Bag Balm – an ointment made to soften a cow's udder for milking – to make her complexion silky.

Step 5
Smooth your skin with honey: TV host and former model Padma Lakshmi washes her face, then slathers on the sticky stuff in the shower. She swears it acts as a smoothening agent. Catherine Zeta-Jones uses honey for the same reason.

Step 6
Remove your makeup with petroleum jelly; that's how Jennifer Lopez cleans and moisturizes her face at the same time. For an environmentally friendly option, look for plant-based un-petroleum jelly.

Fact: Sixty-one percent of women polled would most want to swap hair, makeup, and accessory tips with Jennifer Aniston.
