Sarah Jessica Parker looking flawless in her 50s. How Does She Do It?
Sarah Jessica Parker is sort of like every woman’s fashion fairy godmother. Not only does her iconic style resonate with women across America, but she’s also known as one of the most gracefully aging celebrities of our time. When she decides to dish on her favourite, let’s just say we’re all ears.
At the age of 53, it’s almost like this small screen siren is aging backwards…but how is it possible? Well, recently SJP sat down to dish on everything from married life, kids, fashion and most importantly, how she manages to take such good care of her skin and keep it youthful looking.
While we were hoping to hear some sort of miracle secret she was hiding so we could rush back to our bathroom vanities to recreate it, her advice was as sound, solid and simple as something your grandmother would tell you.
Wash your face and moisturize!
That’s right. Miss Parker went on record with InStyle Magazine saying
“The thing I’m most diligent about is washing my face,” she told reporters. “I say to my husband, ‘Oh, I’m so tired, Matthew! I don’t want to wash my face.’ He’s like, ‘Why do you need to?’ He doesn’t get it at all. I also always wear moisturizer and lip balm religiously.”
Could the secret we’ve been searching for really be that simple? Well based on her flawless skin and the fact that we haven’t seen her age a day since her early start on Sex and The City, I’m tempted to try out her less is more approach!
The science behind SJP’s routine really does make sense if you understand skin and how it is able to heal and repair itself.
A common benefit of facial cleansing, which Sarah Jessica Parker swears by, is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old dead skin cells. Daily facial washing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh look.
For the most effective cleansing routine, more and more experts are recommending an oil based cleanser, like our South Beach Skin Lab Olive Oil Cleanser. Because it acts as a makeup remover too, it also helps eliminate unnecessary steps to your routine.
Her commitment to moisturizing is her biggest secret weapon. Making sure your skin is hydrated will always make skin appear more youthful because lines and wrinkles don’t stand out as much on a properly moisturized face.
The long term benefits of a great moisturizer are endless. If you’re using a proper anti-aging cream like the South Beach Skin Lab Repair & Release Cream it will be packed with peptides and nutrients that are designed to work on your skin while you get on with your day.
These peptides will absorb to all three layers of your face, working double duty to repair current damage and signs of aging while also working to prevent any further damage to your face. Talk about a double whammy!
If being religious about these two steps are going to have me looking as youthful and wrinkle free as SJP, consider me a believer!
