As this pop-punk powerhouse continues to take over Hollywood and the music business, we can’t help but be blown away by the fact that Gwen Stefani will be turning 50 this year. Meanwhile, she’s managed to stay wrinkle-free and as youthful as she did when she was in her 20’s!
So what is Gwen’s secret to her seemingly eternal youth? Well, she’s picked up a few tricks over her years in the spotlight to not only feel great but look amazing too! Here are a few of the skincare secrets Gwen was willing to spill on how she looks so fab at almost 50!
She Loves Sunscreen
A huge key to Gwen Stefani’s ageless skin has to be her dedication to her sun protection routine. Despite having grown up in California where the sun is shining every day, by her 20’s she stopped tanning at the beach and started covering up her skin.
If you happen to catch those paparazzi shots of Gwen on the beach with beau Blake Shelton, she’s slathered on at least an SPF 40 to help keep her skin safe from the sun. This is for sure the reason she doesn’t have a wrinkle or dark spot in sight!
She Let’s Her Skin Breath
Being in the public eye and performing non-stop means lots and lots of makeup. Always one to have fun with her look, it’s easy to catch her sporting her heavy black eye and bold red lips. Wearing lots of makeup isn’t the problem but if you aren’t properly cleansing your skin to remove it and give your pores some time to breathe, you will start to see the negative effects right away.
Using an oil-based cleanser, Stefani removes her makeup the minute she’s finished a concert or a taping of her hit TV show The Voice. Using an oil cleanser allows her to trust that all the dirt, makeup, and grime is 100% gone from her face. She then applies an anti-aging moisturizer and lets her skin breath makeup-free for the rest of the day or night.
She Knows Good Lighting
We all know that celebrities have the benefit of professionals who help with their hair, makeup, and of course their photos. Gwen, however, knows exactly which lighting works for her and always puts her best face forward when she knows her skin will glow.
So how does Gwen make sure the light hits her just right? She makes sure to keep dull skin at bay by being religious about her moisturizing routine. Gwen knows that great skin looks better than great makeup any day of the week. She works to take care of her skin vs. covering it up as needed.
