Celebrity secrets to great skin

Part of the job of a celebrity is to keep her skin in tiptop shape so we thought we’d ask a few of our favorite stars to let us in on their skincare secrets. We’re happy to report that their suggestions don’t cost a fortune or require a professional. It’s amazing how the small things— moisturizing! Taking off your makeup!— can make a drastic difference in the health and appearance of your skin. See what Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Hudson, Zoe Saldana, and others have to say, and let us know if you agree.

 Most stars stress the need for consistent hydration. To keep her porcelain skin smooth and hydrated, Christina Hendricks applies moisturizer several times a day. The “Today” show host Hoda Kotb loves the feel of Olay Regenerist. Lisa Ling prefers to treat her extra-dry skin with serums. Model/handbag designer Camila Alves relies on weekly masks to clear out her pores.

It’s not always about what you put on your skin— what you take off is essential, too. Jennifer Hudson, Tyra Banks, and Zoe Saldana all stress the importance of washing off your makeup at night even if you're exhausted and going to sleep with freshly cleaned skin. My tip: Keep makeup-removing cloths by your bed so no mater how tired you are, you have no excuse not to cleanse your face!
