Celebrity Beauty Secrets with Kym Douglas
Secret #1: Dandelion Root Tea
Mega stars like Julia Roberts, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jennifer Lawrence are just a few of the stars that de-bloat with dandelion tea! It's a diuretic, so it helps rid the body of toxins by flushing out excess fluids and contains a powerful mix of Vitamins A, C and D and zinc, iron, and potassium. It's a great slim down solution and will make you feel great! You could eat a pack of Ramen or even an entire salty fish and still pull off a flat stomach! You can buy the tea packs, take supplements or make your own by combining a tbsp of dandelion root with 8 oz of water, boil for 5 minutes. I like mine iced!
Secret #2: Prenatal Vitamins For Hair
Obviously, for the red carpet and events, everybody uses hair extensions. But stars need to look their best 24/7, so they use prenatal vitamins to get gorgeous hair. NOTE-make sure you don't actually eat the pills because they'll make you want to eat for 2! Instead, body conscious starlets crush up the pills and put directly onto their hair in the shower when they shampoo! I know this works for a fact because I do it everyday. I was going through a stressful time in my life and noticed my hair was suffering as a result. So I did a little research and discovered this tip years ago.
Secret #3: "Nu-Face"
Super stars like Cher and Gwen Stefani are fans of the world's first at home facial toning device-“Nu Face!” It's like a 5 minute, at-home facelift! It uses electric currents to make your muscles work underneath your skin-so it's basically like “pilates for your face!” It's technology that's been used for many years by doctors for wound healing, and it may stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. It may also increase muscle tone and help skin look tighter when used 5 mins/day for 3 months.
Secret #4: Toilet Seat Covers
One of my very first interviews ever was Sarah Jessica Parker. She was raised in a very modest household and now, although money is no longer an issue, is still as frugal as ever. For example, she refuses to buy those fancy makeup-blotting sheets (some cost more than 40 dollars!). Instead, she goes to any public restroom and uses the toilet seat covers to blot her “T-Zone” to remove excess oil to keep her makeup perfectly in place and reduce shine. She's on to something, because this really works wonders!
Secret #5: Nvey Eco Moisture Rich Fluid Foundation
Celebrities like Giselle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alicia Silverstone all use chemical-free, organic foundation! Organic means Paraben free, Talc free, GMO free, no petroleum based ingredients- so it's like giving your skin a rest from all the chemicals! X Factor star, Paulina Rubio loves "Nvey Eco Moisture Rich Fluid Foundation" which actually won Elle Magazine's Green Stars award for calming the skin and delivering an "airbrushed, matte finish!" AND, it's so pure, you can actually DRINK IT! You'll notice how it sinks to the bottom of the glass because it's oil free!
