Selena Gomez skincare routine

Selena Gomez is always being real AF with her followers, like that time she shared those stunning makeup-free selfies, and the time she made a TikTok about not tucking her stomach in.

Knowing that, it’s not exactly surprising that she would decide to share her entire beauty/makeup/a34515352/selena-gomez-beauty-routine/” data-ylk=”slk:morning skincare routine;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “morning skincare routine on TikTok, while preparing for a 6 a.m. flight.

Using the song “Cardigan” by Taylor Swift as the video’s sound, Gomez rubbed her tired eyes and yawned, before applying her skincare products one after the other.

She started by spraying her face with the affordable fave Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater, then cleansed her skin with iS CLINICAL’s Cleansing Complex, before rinsing it off with a towel.

Gomez then plugged her own brand, Rare Beauty, sticking a couple of the Hydrating Under Eye Patches… under her eyes, obviously.

She followed this up with Dermalogica’s Multi-Active Toner for evening out her skin texture, Smart Response Serum for hydrating and brightening, and Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum for reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores.

The multi-hyphenate celeb then mixed two shades of rare-beauty-by-selena-gomez-liquid-touch-brightening-concealer-P64546856″ data-ylk=”slk:Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer to brighten her under-eye area (it was the middle of the night, remember?), and sealed it all up with Rare Beauty Always An Optimist 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist.

To be honest, her skin looked glowy and gorgeous before she even did any of this, but that might also have something to do with her clearly doing this whole routine very regularly, so…

how to add serums into an effective beauty routine

One of the first things we’re told about beauty and skincare is how important it is to understand our skin type. However, Dr Ellie Bradley, science credentialing manager for No7 Beauty, says the key to shopping smart is slightly less about skin types and more about your specific skin goals. “What serum you should use is mainly dependent on the aims you have for your skin, rather than your skin type or age, as everyone’s skin journey is different,” she says.

“If smoothing skin is your primary aim, then No7’s Protect & Perfect Serum is a good choice. If you want to tackle uneven pigmentation or a loss of firmness, the Lift & Luminate Serum from No7 would be ideal. Then, for thinner-feeling skin or to target the neck area, the Restore & Renew Serum from No7 is a good choice. Finding a serum that caters to your goals is key,” says Dr Bradley.

For beauty journalist, Lucy Partington, shopping smart is all about bringing things back to basics. “There are so many different types of serum available now, it can be quite confusing, but think on a very basic level: check the product name, understand what it’s designed to do and see if that matches the effect you want for your skin.

“Perhaps you want to hydrate, brighten or exfoliate. You can also focus on ingredients that will work for your skin. Wonder ingredients to look out for include hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and vitamin C.”

3 Japanese Skincare Secrets To Swear By For Radiant Skin

Japanese skincare is the friendly cousin sister of Korean beauty. J-beauty as they
call it is the new rage amidst beauty connoisseurs is a skincare regime that takes
off years from your face.  

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at a Japanese woman? Youthful, glowing, glass-like skin?

While every woman is beautiful and unique, Japanese women are known to have younger looking skin well past their young age. So, what is the secret behind their fabulous skin? Well, it’s a combination of layers and layers of skincare and a healthy diet.

Why Go For Japanese Beauty Routine?japaneseskin

Often, it is very difficult to tell the age of a Japanese woman. That is because their skin care rituals and diet achieve a common goal — younger looking skin for longer.

Besides keeping wrinkles and fine lines at bay, Japanese skin care products are also quite mild and go easy on harsh chemicals. It is not a very difficult routine to follow and even if you practice their routine with local products, you can get there.

Here are three ride-or-die skincare tips and secrets that’ll help take your skin through all sorts of days.

Eat A Balanced Diet

We often forget that what we put inside our bodies is directly connected to how we look on the outside. A traditional Japanese meal is usually made under the ichijyu sansai principle to assure good balance. These spreads are rich in vitamins and high in omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce the body’s production of toxins that can cause inflammatory skin conditions and premature aging. Fish is rich in protein and lower in fat than red meat, while small portions of a variety of vegetables will supply much-needed vitamins and minerals.

After Toxic Shock Syndrome Claimed Her Legs, Lauren Wasser Set About Reshaping The Fashion Industry

As the child of two models, Pamela Cook and Robert Wasserburger, growing up in California in the early 1990s, my world up until that point had been defined by rare beauty. I was surrounded by the faces of the time: Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell. In hindsight, I realise how unusual my childhood was, but back then it was all I knew. It wasn’t long before I started to follow in my parents’ footsteps: I booked my first modelling job at just two-months-old, alongside my mother in Italian Vogue. But as I got older, I found a passion for athletics, too – basketball was my true love. Everything I wanted, I was continually told, was at my fingertips.

And so when I woke up from a medically induced coma in that Santa Monica hospital room one day in early October 2012, in excruciating pain, it wasn’t just that I was unrecognisable: I had been stripped of my entire identity, of the beauty and body that, I thought then, had made me me. I had been found unresponsive at home, having suffered a fever of almost 42C, my kidneys failing. I had had two heart attacks and was given just a one per cent chance of survival. When I came round a week-and-a-half later, after being placed on life support, I was pumped full of fluid, I weighed 200 pounds, my hair was so matted that my head had been shaved, and my legs were black with gangrene. It was only when I overheard a nurse saying they would need to amputate a young woman that I realised she was talking about me.

I left hospital three months later in a wheelchair and back at home, shell-shocked, tried to come to terms with my new
