Shop the Story: Celebrity Skincare
As the seasons change and summer creeps closer, it's very important to stay a step ahead of the game in our skincare routine. Exfoliation, sunscreen, and changes in weather or altitude are all factors that might make our summer skin less than desirable during the most bare season of the year.
In our last issue we covered the latest Celebrity Skincare lines and reviewed which ones are actually worth trying out, so today we're giving you an easy way to shop the brands. Click the photo to discover the products!
1. Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty
Cindy Crawford’s relationship to beauty needs no explanation. In 2005 the retired supermodel teamed up with Dr. Sebagh, a French skincare specialist, and formulated her skincare line, Meaningful Beauty. This extremely affordable line of anti-aging products is based around a self-described “Youth Molecule” that Sebagh discovered (named Superoxide Dismutase) that they draw out from what the website vaguely refers to as “a rare melon.
2. Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare
Another superstar who appears to be an exception to the inevitable effects of aging is Christie Brinkley, the brains and face behind Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare. Just the fact that she put “authentic” in the title suggests that she understands the consumer who has been duped by celebrity endorsements in the past.
3. Salma Hayek Nuance for CVS
Unlike other independent ventures Salma Hayek chose to team up with CVS pharmacy in 2011 to create a line called Nuance Beauty. The diverse product line has been wildly popular with drugstore beauty shoppers and to the La Mer-loving woman, it almost seems too good to be true.
4. MDNA Skin
Madonna and her team worked with Japan’s leading beauty company MTG to create three separate products to form a system that promises results. And no, they are not even close to your average cleanser/cream combo. The skin rejuvenator is actually an electronic device which uses magnetic force to draw out impurities while simultaneously using what they call “deep derma induction” to enhance beauty nutrients. You can own this experimental invention if you happen to be shopping in Japan for 58,000 yen, which is roughly $482 USD.
5. Josie Maran Argan Oil
If you shop at Sephora then you’ve probably seen or heard about the Argan Oil line, Josie Maran. What most people don’t know is that founder Maran was a former actress and model for companies such as Guess, Glamour, Sports Illustrated, and one-day competitor, Maybelline. While Maran doesn’t name names specifically, she says on her website, “I worked with some of the world’s best makeup artists. The more I learned about toxic chemicals in most cosmetics, the more I wondered: did beauty have to be bad for us?
