Are Celebrity Beauty Brands Worth a Try?

Want to smell rich and famous? Buy a celebrity fragrance. Want to look healthy, feel red-carpet cool and glow with do-good vibes? Buy a celebrity’s namesake moisturizer, serum or body cream. At least that’s what actors, models and musicians are counting on as they churn out skin care lines from affordable to luxurious. Worth a try? Yes, but only if you…카지노사이트

  1. Keep an open mind
    This is no longer about famous faces just adding their names to big established brands for advertising benefits. The star is actively involved in the creation/development and ownership of a line with an up-to-the-minute point of view. Skin care brands by 50-something celebs such as Goop Beauty by Gwyneth Paltrow and Le Domaine by Brad Pitt are sure to grab our attention first (after all, they’re our peers), but don’t ignore those by younger stars such as Hailey Bieber whose Rhode Skin Peptide Glazing Fluid promises “glazed donut skin” for all. Every line has one product that will stop you mid-scroll and call out to your AmEx card.
  2. Make a personal connection
    It’s what I call the “She’s like me!” factor. For example, Naomi Watts created her Stripes menopause-based brand after going through the hormonal ups and downs that resulted in parched skin. Scarlett Johansson, who suffered from sensitive/problem skin, launched The Outset and emphasizes a plant-based alternative to hyaluronic acid in every product. Vegan, cruelty-free and allergy– and dermatologist-tested, it’s also totally fragrance-free. Michael Strahan started his Daily Defense line for men to tackle his own mature skin issues — dryness, ingrown hairs, shaving and stubble care — and packaged the dermatologist-approved, hypoallergenic products in recyclable aluminum travel sizes with twist locks for no messy spills.
  3. Like the “clean, green beauty” trend
    Many “celebrity” brands are on the wellness/eco-conscious track and looking to connect with like-minded consumer-fans who want to delete sulfates, parabens, silicones and other potentially harmful ingredients from their regimens. Hey Humans by Jada Pinkett Smith’s sustainably packaged line includes everything from body wash to deodorant designed to reduce plastic pollution; S’Able Labs by Idris and Sabrina Elba is gender-free, ethically sourced, eco-responsible and uses recyclable, refillable packaging; and Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr uses verified organic ingredients and no potentially harmful ones such as sulfates and parabens.바카라사이트
  4. Check for expert input
    You might ask, “OK, but what does so-and-so star know about skin care?” Well, they’re not alone in their kitchens mixing this stuff up. Every brand relies on research and development teams, science-backed ingredients and an advisory board of experts with beauty credentials. Some celebs team up with a personal pro. Pharrell Williams’ Humanrace line was created with dermatologist Elena Jones; Alicia Keys’ Keys Soulcare line with dermatologist Renée Snyder; and Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty with noted French cosmetic surgeon Jean-Louis Sebagh.
  5. Focus on ingredients proved to help mature skin
    The idea of celebrity skin care for all is great, but the truth is 50-plus skin is very different from that of a 20-, 30- or 40-year-old. We’re dealing with decades of sun damage, lines, wrinkles, dryness, sag, dark spots and other pigmentation issues. To be clear, this is not about the age of the celebrity. It’s about choosing a brand and products that will live up to your expectations. You want fresher, more fabulous skin, not a more fabulous looking jar sitting on the vanity. Look for proven ingredients such as peptides, hyaluronic acid and ceramides and antioxidants to stimulate collagen growth, hydrate, plump up lines, brighten and protect.
  6. Can try one product at a time
    The celeb angle can be tempting enough to provoke a spending spree of multiple products or even an entire regimen. In addition, the brand sites are direct-to-consumer and offer prepackaged bundles as incentive to buy more. Don’t. Find one “hero” product that can be swapped into your usual routine before adding more. It’s the only way to test a product’s performance and any allergic reaction or sensitivity. You might try Fenty Skin by Rihanna Instant Reset Brightening Overnight Recovery Gel-Cream with Niacinamide + Kalahari Melon Oil ($42, as a night cream; Honest Hydrogel Cream ($20, for day; or Body by TPH (Taraji P. Henson) Softer Than A Mutha Body Butter Vanilla + Tuberose ($13, to soothe and rejuvenate flaky winter skin neck to toes.온라인카지노
