Catchy title but what I mean is how can I get really healthy looking, glossy, youthful skin that celebrities seem to have? I drink lots of water and moisturise loads but I still have too many imperfections, any tips on how to reduce them? I don't want to have to tan to get it; id rather have pale skin!

I wouldn't recommend aspiring to have celebrity skin as opposed to simply healthier skin; the make-up many celebrities probably use can drastically change the way they look, so don't use that as a standard.

I suppose for better skin, do the things like:
drink water
do exercise (better when sunny), wear at-shirt as opposed to shirt in summer, so expose more skin to sunlight, protect skin from burning though, if necessary
eat healthier foods, like fruits, vegs. etc.
cut down on junk (mainly oily) foods
colder showers, tighter skin? (well cold at very end)
better shampoos, not cheap harsh stuff (have to invest a bit mor,e but well worth it, if you're not already)
for nice hair and scalp as well, try using/try out coconut oil (actually very good, try out superdrug I think (not many places sell it))
remember that showers can be harsh on skin, harsher when hotter & longer, moisturise after showers also


To look even better naked, confidence would probably be a must; remember confidence is attractive. Have good posture, don't be nervous, shy etc. Trust me confidence affects everything.

How to look good depends what you think is wrong to start with. What don't you like?

Eat less carbs? my mum does beauty therapy, mainly skincare and she's got 20 years experience I can tell you carbs are the enemy.. I mean the lightweight, empty and ussually delicious things like Chips, crisps, bread, biscuits, cake and anything with a lot of sugar.

If you have a lot of blackheads and blemishes then I recommend Dermalogica facial wash, it's a boutique brand that sheets on garnier and clean n' clear and all those brands that need advertising.

Certain foods that are good for your skin are ussually not very tasty like fish, eggs and nuts. You can probably find a list of these on Men's health... or women's health website.

But at the end of the day, your complexion and smoothness of the skin may come from genetics, some people were born to have bad skin and you just gotta accept it.

well the ideal carbs are the thick, tough ones like potatoes, whole grain anything: bread, rice, crackers.... buckwheat is far healthier than white rice and pasta. The type of carbs I'm talking about are called "complex carbohydrates" you should do some research online, they're called complex because on an atomic level, they're very big and when you digest them they break down into smaller carbs, then even smaller and then boom they're gone... each time they break down you get energy. whereas the other kind, known as simple carbs are already as small as a molecule can be so when you digest them they straight away turn into energy and your hungry again.

To get tighter skin you need to reduce sodium in your diet, not cold showers.

That's why I added a question mark as that was just something I heard of. I should have added those were all just ideas.

cold showers or cold water in general usually closes up pores so it gives the appearance of tighter skin I think? I used to have pretty bad skin but now part of my face routine is using warm water to open the pore and then my face wash and warm water to rinse it off then using cold water again to close the pores a bit so that there's less build up of oils. I have combination skin and between drinking lots of water, eating healthier and using make up less my skin cleared up a lot from when I was 13 and having breakouts every day?

I have no idea if there's any science to it I just read an article on it years ago and it worked for me?

Here are a few tips:
-Go to the gym regularly
-Eat healthily and avoid too much sugar and carbs
-Wash your skin and make sure it is always clean
-Go in the sun a little to get a nice complexion, but not too much as it will damage your skin and make it horrible later on in life
-Wear flattering clothes or whatever suitable for your figure
-Exfoliate your skin often
-Have your skin massaged regularly, maybe go to spas?

Hope this has helped !
