Ever wondered how your favorite celebrities always manage to have such good skin?

Many famous faces attribute their gorgeous glow to the positive affirmations that they repeat each day or their downright lucky genetics combined with a skilled makeup artist and, while those things can be undeniably beneficial, there’s usually more to it than this…

Read on as CBGärdN shares some of the weird and wonderful celebrity skincare secrets that aren’t often talked about. 

Olive Oil Gives the Skin a Glow

Illuminating Vita C Serum

Jennifer Lopez is known for her glow, and she often declares taking the ‘less is more’ approach to her skin. Unlike much of the other celebrity skincare advice out there, JLo doesn’t recommend piling layer upon layer of product on the skin. Instead, she prefers to keep things simple with just a small handful of products that she can rely on daily.

While these products occasionally change, JLo reveals that she always makes sure that olive oil has been included somewhere in her skincare routine. Why? Because olive oil is brimming with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, all of which are fantastic for the skin. After family members raved to her about the beauty benefits of olive oil, JLo gave it a try for herself and has rocked her famous glow ever since. From serums to moisturizers, JLo loves anything that contains the ingredient, especially if olive oil has been combined with other antioxidants.

If you’d like to make the most of olive oil’s beautifying properties, check out the CB Illuminating Vita C Serum from CBGärdN. It enhances the moisturizing abilities of olive oil by combining it with jojoba seed oil and coconut oil. It’s also packed with multiple antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, and E, nettle leaf extract, and grape stem cells.

Pamper Your Body With Sheet Masks

BioLeaf Hydrating Neck & Chest Mask

Some people are obsessed with face masks while others rarely use them, and Lily Aldridge is in the former category. The model is known for her flawless-looking skin, and has said that face masks play a big role in this.

Aldridge uses sheet masks regularly to boost her skin’s moisture levels. However, in addition to using them on her face, she’ll often treat areas of her body to a mask too. Aldridge even placed one over her baby bump during her third trimester!

While we wouldn’t recommend doing exactly that, there’s no reason why your body shouldn’t benefit from the occasional mask. Many face masks can easily be customized with a pair of scissors. This enables you to give various areas of your body some TLC.

If going DIY with your face masks doesn’t appeal to you, take a look at the CB BioLeaf Hydrating Neck & Chest Mask from CBGärdN. It will soften and plump up the look of dry skin, leaving your neck and chest area looking smoother, brighter, and more supple.

Say No to Suntanning

Multi Active Moisturizer SPF30

How many times have you seen photos of celebrities frolicking in the sun, showing off their bronzed bodies?

Chances are, too many times to count. As a result, it’s hardly surprising that so many people aspire to that tanned look, turning to the sun as a means to achieve this. 

This, unfortunately, doesn’t end well. Numerous studies point to the sun being responsible for 80-90% of the visible signs of aging. This means that the more sun you’ve had over the years, the older you’ll end up looking. It all comes down to how UV rays break down the skin’s protein fibers. This prevents the skin from maintaining its firm, smooth, and youthful finish.

Fortunately, some celebrities are now speaking out against this, Jennifer Aniston included. The actress admits to recently undergoing a ‘suntanning intervention’, and that one of her biggest regrets is not being more diligent about using sunscreen when she was younger.

However, as Aniston’s gorgeous complexion shows, it’s never too late to make a change. Not only does Aniston now limit how much time she spends in the sun, but she also ensures that her skin is always protected with SPF.

If you’d like to keep your skincare routine as simple as possible, look for a two-in-one moisturizer and sunscreen, like the CBGärdN CB Multi-Active Moisturizer With SPF 30. Apply it in the morning and then keep the jar with you so that you can top it up throughout the day.

Double Cleansing is Essential

This celebrity skincare secret is now practiced by so many famous faces, meaning that it’s not technically a secret anymore. Everyone from Kerry Washington to Olivia Wilde raves about the benefits of double cleansing, with this game-changing technique capable of transforming the complexion.

If you’ve never heard of it before, double cleansing involves cleansing your face twice instead of once. You start with an oil-based cleanser, rinse it off, and then follow up with a water-based cleanser, such as the CBGärdN CB Facial Cleanser. 

Why would you want to go through the hassle of cleansing twice? Because, as many celebrities will attest to, it provides a much more thorough cleanse. This is why double cleansing is the norm in many parts of the world, including Korea and Japan. It’s so much more effective at removing impurities than a single cleanse. This means that your other skincare products will be able to soak their way into your skin with greater ease. This will significantly enhance their effects.

If you’d like to take things even further, follow up your double cleanse with a toner. Not only will this remove any residue left behind by your cleansers, but it will also hydrate your complexion and leave it feeling balanced. Go with a formula like the CBGärdN CB Facial Toner and you’ll also benefit from a dose of powerful antioxidants!

Never Skimp on Skincare

Jessica Alba makes no secret of the fact that she didn’t have a financially stable childhood. With her parents living paycheck to paycheck, the actress admits that she was often in survival mode. During this time, her mother imparted many words of wisdom. However, one beauty secret that has really stuck with the Alba is to never skimp on skincare.

Even when things were financially difficult, Alba’s mother always made sure to give her skin what it needed, and Jessica grew up doing the same.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend several thousand on your skin in order for it to look good. However, if possible, don’t always reach for the cheapest product on the shelf either. Instead, find something that genuinely works well for your skin’s needs, even if it means slightly stretching your budget.

Don’t forget that many skincare brands have regular sales and sometimes provide great value when it comes to product sets. At CBGärdN, for example, our gift sets bundle together various products, saving you money compared to if you were to buy them individually.

Hydrating Facials Are the Way to Go

Celebrity skincare efforts often include professional procedures. From Gwyneth Paltrow’s love of microneedling to Kim Kardashian’s preference for laser treatments, every star has their favorite. Jennifer Lopez is another one who tends to be a regular at her dermatologist’s office. She has frequently stated that having a hydrating facial each month has really helped her skin.

It’s easy to understand why. Hydration is something that everyone’s skin requires. It doesn’t matter how old you are or which skin concerns you’re dealing with, your skin cells still need to be hydrated in order to function. Plus, hydrated skin looks brighter, fuller, and infinitely more radiant than dehydrated skin, making this advice worth paying attention to.

With that said, not everyone is willing to fork over for monthly hydrating facials. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to replicate the process at home. JLo’s version starts with exfoliation, which you can do for yourself with the CB Microexfoliant Peel from CBGärdN.

Her skin is then treated to a few layers of hydrating serums. Again, this is something that’s easy to do at home. Look for serums that have been formulated with multiple humectants, such as the CB Göld Replenishing Serum. It contains sodium hyaluronate, peptides, glycerin, and allantoin, all of which bind moisture to the skin. It’s also brimming with antioxidant-rich plant extracts. Together, they’ll revive your complexion, leaving it feeling deeply hydrated.

Under-Eye Masks For the Win

Pure Soothing Eye Jelly Masks

Some celebrity skincare secrets don’t remain secrets for very long, simply because they’re so Instagram-worthy. This is particularly the case when it comes to sheet masks, with under-eye mask patches having their moment lately.

From Emily Blunt to Hailey Bieber, scroll through some celebrity social media feeds and you’ll likely spot your favorite stars gazing at the camera with a mask patch under each eye. The result of that dedication? Under-eyes that look smoother and brighter. It’s perfect for anyone who often struggles with the appearance of puffiness or dark circles.

While some eye masks are available for purchase individually, it’s usually more cost-effective to buy a bunch of them. Purchase the Pure Soothing Eye Jelly Masks Limited Edition from CBGärdN, for example, and you’ll find 30 pairs, meaning 60 masks in total, in the jar. With sea moss, algae, sodium hyaluronate, chamomile, and more, they’ll leave your under-eyes looking luminescent, which will brighten up your entire complexion.


When looking for a way to upgrade their skincare routines, people often turn to celebrity skincare advice. After all, celebrities have access to some of the best dermatologists and beauty gurus around, meaning that they’re in the know when it comes to all things skin. With that said, not all celebrity skincare advice is good, so make sure that any tips that you follow have been confirmed as safe by a reputable source. When it comes to the tips featured above, you’re good to go!
