The Oscars are almost here, and one thing’s for sure – each celebrity will be tenuously preparing to look effortlessly beautiful. Fortunately there are endless people on hand to help them achieve exquisite results. Preparation for the Academy Awards begins weeks before the event is due. Stars will exercise rigorously; receive non-surgical and even surgical treatment (such as the odd nip and tuck) long before the week of the Oscars, to ensure they look simply fabulous. Here are some of the beauty procedures that celebrities turn to on their quest for magnificence.
Largely thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow, the latest internal beauty trend that has taken the place of juicing, is ‘souping.’ This basically is highly nutritional food condensed into a soup, of which enables weight loss, clear skin and an overall feeling of wellbeing.
On the countdown to the Oscars when you see a celebrity, inevitably you will find a fitness trainer in their shadow. Personal trainers are like gold dust to the stars during this period; celebrities such as Anne Hathaway and Reese Witherspoon are two examples of this. In L.A you can expect to pay on average $900 per week.
This treatment is for celebrities that want a facelift without invasive surgery – perfect on the run-up to the Oscars due to its fast results. Thermage is a treatment that uses LED light therapies to stimulate collagen production, thus firming, plumping up, and tightening the skin to acquire that all-important youthful complexion. This beauty treatment costs $1,500.
Compression facials are huge in Hollywood right now. We have seen an endless array of Instagram posts showing celebrities such as Lady Gaga endorsing the beauty treatment. This facial promises to be all singing and all dancing, as it apparently cleanses, freshens, lifts, sculpts, and tightens the face. Many celebrities opt for masks formed from stretch cotton lace, as it is said to have a rejuvenating effect.
