"Celebrities have great skin, but it takes a lot of work," says Jessica Wu, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at USC Medical School and a dermatologist in Los Angeles. "In fact, most of them have a team of beauty pros that travel with them and get them ready for the camera. But you can look your best at home by stealing some of their secrets." We asked the beauty pros to share the skin care tips they use to make sure the most gorgeous celebrities always have healthy, glowing skin from head to toe.
Dewy, Even Complexion

"Everyone sees your face before they get to know you or speak with you -- it's your first impression," says Jeannette Graf, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.
And these A-listers make a beautiful impression. Julianne Moore, Penélope Cruz, and Renée Zellweger have skin so dewy and fresh they've become complexion icons. The key here is that they don't have sun damage, says Francesca Fusco, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. "Sunscreen 24/7 is a must, even when indoors, in cars, and on planes where UVA comes through the windows."
Celebs fight blocked pores and acne with in-office treatments like microdermabrasion, facials, and peels, and by keeping their hands off their flawless faces. "Don't cup your chin, and keep your hair out of your face, especially since styling products are a major aggravator of acne," says Dr. Graf. "And swab your phone regularly with an alcohol pad to clean off oil and makeup, since bacteria can be transferred to the skin."
