Every once in a while, glammed-up celebs come face-to-face with readers to remind us all that hey, no one’s perfect – and if you had a team of expert estheticians following you around, you’d probably look every bit as flawless as they do.
That being said, there is something to be learned from the skin care tricks of the pros, even if you can’t afford to indulge in the industry’s cutting edge beauty technology.

Look for products rich in antioxidants and facial cleansers that contain glycerin for a rich, glowing complexion.
