Let's face it: no matter who we are, we all want a taste of the celebrity life. However, real life often intrudes, and all of the upkeep can a bit out of the everyday budget
. However, there are some at-home
tips and tricks that will get you red carpet-ready every day.
Let's start at the top, with great hair. We all know that stars pay good money
to have shiny, healthy, luxurious hair at all times. Guess what: you can do the same at home.
Know your hair texture, and "head" to your local drugstore or beauty
supply and get products
that work for you. For starters, I'd recommend a deep conditioner once a week -- you will love how your hair feels and reacts to styling. Dampen hair, apply deep conditioner, cover with shower cap and go about your routine for an hour, rinse.
We all know how important healthy, glowing skin is. You keep your skin looking its best, follow these simple tips. First: drink lots of water, hydration is key. Try a toning mask (look for cucumber in the ingredients) once a week, and an apricot scrub twice a week. Be sure to remove makeup nightly, and follow with a great moisturizer before bed.
