Dr. Lancer's Skincare Tips for a Red Carpet Ready Complexion

Awards season is upon us. The Golden Globes marks the first large red carpet event of the season and puts the spotlight on popular beauty trends for 2018. A radiant complexion will never go out of style and looking red carpet ready shouldn’t be a celebrity exclusive. That’s why I want to share some of my most practical tips that I personally apply and share with my celebrity clientele for skin that glows from within.

The first step to having red carpet ready skin is to take a good look at yourself in the mirror and focus on one aspect (from head to toe) that will make the biggest improvement to your look and your confidence.

In the run up to a big event like the Golden Globes, it’s always best to remain committed to your regimen. Now is not the time to cut corners and all of my patients know to stick with their daily skincare routine.

Hydration is essential for younger and more radiant looking skin. To ensure your skin maintains a smooth and plump appearance you need to approach hydration both inside and out. Drink plenty of water and apply a sheet mask, the trick that celebrities have been using for years. It is one of the best ways to prep for special appearances to ensure that your skin looks hydrated and is at its glowing best.

Don’t forget the importance of maintaining fresh, smooth skin around the eyes along with beautifully conditioned lips.  A quality eye cream helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Paired with a good concealer, you’re able to disguise dark circles for brighter looking eyes. Highlight your lips by using a clear or sheer lip gloss for lips that look smooth while adding a glossy sheen that complements your natural lip color.

A healthy lifestyle that combines exercise, the right nutrition and high-quality skincare is essential for great skin. Take a 30 minute walk.  Not only will you get your body moving, you will also help ease your mind. Making adjustments to your diet like giving up added salt, dairy and caffeine will also support your quest for award winning skin.  For that extra special occasion, pampering your skin with a facial or relaxing at home treatment will do wonders.  Treat yourself! It’s important and will help you look your glowing best for any event.
