Many of us... No. Some... No... I have an unhealthy obsession with celebrities. I want to wake up in the morning and see Adriana Lima in the mirror. Fat chance, I know! I want shiny voluminous hair, blemish-free skin, bag-less eyes, and cellulite-free thighs like Jessica Alba. I want to approach my 40s with the the same grace and beauty as Jennifer Aniston. Unhealthy and unrealistic, to say the least, but something tells me I’m not the only one.
Truth is, we all admire celebrities, but we’re also aware of the miracle recipes for these gorgeous, photograph-ready stars. The miracle recipes I am referring to are Photoshop and airbrushing. When we take these two ingredients out of the equation, we have regular people with similar imperfections, like cellulitic thighs. The difference is, these celebs know all the beauty secrets to present the best possible version of themselves. No wonder they have beauty products they can’t live without! Here is the inside scoop on celebs must-have items:
Boots’ Botanics -- If you want smooth, buttery skin like Gwyneth Paltrow, then check out the Boots’ Botanics organic line, available at Target.
Laventine -- This is Zooey Deschanel’s go-to organic cleansing oil. It keeps her beautiful fair skin clear and nourished. It contains Vitamin E and is water soluble. Check it out here.
Dr Organic Royal Jelly Cellulite Cream -- Cellulite, be gone! Poof, there it goes. This cream used by mommy-of-two Kate Hudson is a bikini season essential! Can be found here.
Davines Nounou Nourishing Illuminating Cream -- It’s all about the hair! For shiny, bouncy locks like Emma Stone, massage and comb through your hair, then rinse. Available here.
Victoria's Secret Sunkissed Bronze Lotion -- If I could just tap my red heels three times and be blessed with a bronzy shimmery glow like Adriana Lima, I’d be the happiest gal alive! Piece of cake! Her sun-kissed look is sold in a bottle here.
Supersmile Professional Whitening System -- I love a pearly white smile... minus the sensitive teeth! Well, Kelly Ripa (or Pippa, as Regis called her) knows the solution to a perfect smile. She uses the whitening products found here.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss -- This is the best lip gloss you’ll find at an unbelievable value, all thanks to the stunning Halle Berry! Her go-to gloss in Nude Lustre is sold here.
