While we’re cocooning ourselves in scarves and coats, the colder weather leaves us all in need of a little extra protection when it comes to our skin, and Victoria Beckham’s answer is apparently the very reasonably priced Weleda Skin Food at £10.95.
The cream is a blend of gentle viola tricolor, calendula and chamomile, in a rich, thick base of oils and beeswax, the cream aims to nourish, but Beckham told Into The Gloss that she adds her own little twist: “When I have a tan, I’ll mix it with coconut oil — the same you use to cook with — and cover my entire body with it. I suppose some people may not like the greasiness, but it helps me hold on to the colour.”
It was reported by Harpers Bazaar that before she graced the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival this year, the unendingly impressive Amal Clooney – human rights lawyer, mum and all round superhero – used a Charlotte Tilbury Dry Sheet Mask designed to reduce wrinkles, smooth, brighten, lift and hydrate the skin. It’s the kind of prep work that allows you to head out the door with minimal make-up afterwards. The mask retails at a reasonable £18 and uses revolutionary technology and ingredients designed to (as Tilbury says on Instagram) “give you the best skin of your life” with expert results in just 15 minutes.
Always seeming wise beyond her years, Jennifer Lawrence made her name as the ball busting mockingjay Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movies. She has also been outspoken in recent weeks about abuse in the Hollywood system, and is adored for her girl next door style with a twist of Hollywood glamour. Well it seems that her glowing skin owes a fair amount to St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub, retailing at £3.99. She has been quoted as saying “I exfoliate regularly and have found it to be an integral part of my skincare routine. I probably exfoliate twice a week. For my face I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which I think many can agree is a go-to scrub.”
The blooming Duchess of Cambridge is forever being lauded for her exemplary appearance, but she’s also been historically praised for her prudent spending as well. She did her own make-up for her wedding – mastering the smoky eyeliner like a pro, she’s often seen in highstreet clothing, and it turns out her glowing skin is likely thanks to an old school favourite – the humble flannel. Stylist reported that the woman who taught Kate everything she knows, Arabella Preston, believes the future queen’s expensive-looking visage is not the result of a super-premium skincare routine but the basic square towel off-cuts that cost a matter of pounds even if you splash out on the Harrods variety.
