Beauty is a BIG thing, and whether they’re on the stage, the big screen or simply out and about, celebrities seem to have flawless skin. Our Aussie girls are no exception, as they understand that beautiful skin requires some love and attention. If you have your own beauty tips and tricks, you can put them to use as a beautician with a SHB50115 – Diploma of Beauty Therapy. For now, we’re stealing the beauty secrets of some famous Aussie beauties to help us on the road to skin perfection.
Stunning Margot grew up on the Gold Coast in Queensland, so she’s a definite pro when it comes to taking care of sun-drenched skin. Margot swears by intense organic oil for keeping her skin soft, rejuvenated and glowing, despite long days on set and frequent travel. She has previously stated that her favourite oil contains seabuck thorn oil and Australian jojoba oil. Face oils provide exceptional hydration, with Jojoba oil in particular being very light and easily absorbed into skin. Use a small amount on your face before bed to allow skin to throughly absorb the moisture overnight.
If you want effortlessly gorgeous, healthy tresses like ‘The Body’ herself, but the elements are taking their toll, then take this fabulous tip from Elle: if you swim frequently and find that chlorine wreaks havoc on your hair, try filling your swimming cap with moisturiser! This will provide a nourishing barrier between your hair and the nasty chemicals and working as a mask whilst you’re swimming. Multitasking at it’s finest, Elle!
Kylie has been an Aussie sweetheart for decades, yet she still manages to maintain the appearance of youthful, glowing skin. What’s her tip? Always remember to apply your sunscreen! The sun is responsible for the vast majority of visible ageing, so protect your skin from the harmful UV rays with all-important SPF. Whilst many foundations contain some amount of SPF, it’s usually only a low percentage. Try a designated facial sunscreen for the best skin protection.
As the creator of her own acclaimed skincare brand, Kora Organics, Miranda knows a thing or two about nourishing your skin. In addition to organic-based moisturisers and oils, Miranda swears by dry body brushing, an integral part of her daily regime. Body brushing is a great way to increase circulation, remove dead skin cells, aid lymphatic drainage, detoxify your system and keep your skin smooth all over. Simply start with your feet and legs and work your way up in quick, gentle strokes. Miranda recommends dry body brushing before showering. Be sure to moisturise afterwards for super smooth skin.
