Stars with glowing skin — and how they get it

We covet their wardrobes, style and glamorous lives — and now we can add skin to the list.

These celebrities have the kind of flawless, glowing skin that we all know and love — here’s how they get it.

These leading ladies have one thing in common: They all have fantastic, luminous, clear skin. But it doesn’t just happen overnight. While genes do play a part, in most cases, healthy skin is the product of a great skincare routine and sensible habits. We found out the “skin secrets” that get these celebrities looking so damn good.

Blake Lively

With a successful career, a hunk of a husband and a toned bod, Blake Lively really does have it all. While her life may be crazy, one thing is constant: Lively always flaunts flawless, glowing skin. Luckily, she’s happy to share her skincare secrets with the rest of us. The actress credits her picture-perfect skin to a few hard-working products, a bit of common sense and the tips she’s picked up from working with some of the world’s best beauty therapists. To hydrate and even out her skin tone, Lively swears by Juno Transformative Lipid Serum. She religiously uses Per-fekt’s Beauty Skin Perfection Gel, which is packed with antioxidants that help give skin that healthy glow. Lively’s radiant look is also thanks to a sober lifestyle, regular oxygen facials and La Mer moisturisers.

Heidi Klum

This supermodel, TV host and mum of four has a hectic lifestyle, but her skin shows no signs of that. In fact, her skin is as radiant and incredible as it was when she first started on the catwalks. Well, according to Klum, maintaining that youthful glow is easier than you think — and she firmly believes that the less complicated your skin regime is, the better. A few years ago, Klum launched her own skincare line, In An Instant. She swears that its products have balanced, detoxified and hydrated her skin, but they have also helped against premature ageing. Sure, she might be a little biased, but she’s obviously doing something right! Klum religiously uses a cleanser, serum, moisturiser and sunscreen daily, as well as a scrub a couple of times a week. Along with sticking to a no-fuss yet effective routine, Klum also credits her flawless skin to sleep and getting her blood pumping through exercise.

Scarlett Johansson

This screen siren is enviable for many, many reasons, and her flawless complexion is one of them. The great news is, she has a refreshingly simple approach to skincare that any of us ordinary people can copy. First and foremost, Johansson never goes to bed with makeup on. Her other secret to flawless skin is to clean makeup brushes and sponges once a week. These are the golden rules of skincare, ladies, and Johansson knows what she’s talking about. The blond bombshell has sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts, so her skincare regime works around those two “problems”. Believe it or not, she just uses Cetaphil face wash (which you can buy at chemists and supermarkets) and a Clarins moisturiser. She also uses the Jurlique Purifying Mask once a week to clear out pores. If she breaks out before an event, Johannson will turn to the experts for a light-based acne treatment or a chemical peel. Last but not least, Johansson drinks two litres of water a day to maintain a clear complexion.

Kate Bosworth

This stunning star has just been named as an SK-II ambassador and one glance at her luminous skin is all it takes to see why. Bosworth has that rare glowing-from-within look — but it’s the result of a rigorous skincare routine and a lot of tender loving care. She uses a range of products that are perfectly tailored to her skin type. The beauty icon doesn’t go a day without using the SK-II Cleanser to get rid of dirt and makeup, and the Facial Treatment Essence to hydrate the skin from deep down in the pores. To brighten and lighten, she uses the Cellumination Deep Surge Moisturiser, and when her skin needs some extra help (such as when she is travelling), she swears by the Skin Signature. This rich cream is super moisturising and is great for when your skin’s looking a little dull. When she’s home in LA, the petite star also sees a facialist for extractions. Bosworth believes that the lifestyle changes she made in her late 20s, such as switching to a healthy diet, exercising regularly and drinking tons of coconut water, is what has made her skin so vibrant.
