When it comes to beauty the glittering Oscars, Bafta’s and Brits have one thing common – the sought-after “red carpet glow”. Although popping in to have their favourite last-minute skin boosting treatment is part of the pre-event preparation, in reality, many stars would have been prepping their skin weeks, if not months, before the big night. So how do they get that sparkling, seemingly effortless “Hollywood glow”. A-listers tend to be genetically blessed but, even for them, looking that good is anything but effortless. They will most likely be having regular treatments to maintain their skin and address any concerns and will inevitably squeeze in a couple of extra sessions before a red carpet event to make sure they look their absolute best.
Traditional facials are less common now and many stars are turning to a new breed of more advanced skin treatments such as lasers, peels and light therapy, delivered in a more gentle and controlled way. This promotes strong healthy skin, rather than blasting the skin with powerful energy that could cause side effects. Healthy skin works better, it regenerates and heals more effectively and has that glow we all love. Of course, you need to do your research and opt for the right treatment for your skin. There are many different lasers, peels, machines and products that up the facial ante. For anyone who has problematic skin or who wants gold standard treatments, the D.Thomas Clinic takes the confusion out of which laser you may need, by creating bespoke treatments, which are tailored specifically for you, following a thorough consultation. For those who only have minor skin concerns or want to maintain their skin, our sister brand, D.Thomas Illuminate, offers skin illuminating treatments in boosting 20-minute sessions. Both the D.Thomas Clinic and D.Thomas Illuminate use the best products and combine scientifically proven skin methods to treat and maintain your skin and give you that healthy Hollywood glow.
If you are not quite ready to dive into full scientific skincare, then there are some quick fixes you can try at home to give your skin a fresher look. Here are the D.Thomas Clinic team’s five top tips for achieving perfect looking skin.
As the barrage of glamorous red carpet shots reminds us of the importance of a bit of sparkle and glow, remember that it’s all about the base. If your skin isn’t looking its best, you won’t feel like a million dollars. So why not treat yourself and book a facial treatment– after all, it’s what the celebs do.
