Penelope Cruz Simple Path to Ageless Beauty
September 25th, 2012
Last year the soaring film star planted her delicate hands into the iconic pavement of Hollywood’s Walk of Fame as the first Spanish actress to receive this immortalizing honor. Soon after, Lancôme came pedaling a prestigious contract to appear as the illustrious face of the luxury French brand’s ever-popular fragrance, Trésor. So with this charmed life, who wouldn’t glow? But this down to earth celebrity professes a simple approach to skin care that gives her the air of natural beauty.
What Skincare products does Penelope Cruz use?
Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz chooses Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream as her magic cream to keep her skin ageless and supple. Cruz applies a rehydrating moisturizer to replenish hydration that is essential to inhibit the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that would otherwise etch the skin as maturity sets in, try on lips, cheeks or cuticles to really moisturize.
Celebrity skin care facialist Joanna Vargas recommends her Daily Hydrating Cream, an equally great face moisturizer that Ms. Cruz can also use. This moisturizer protects against the environment and encourages cell turnover, vital for women in their 30s and up. And this new mom will probably appreciate the phenomenal Galactoarabinan as it renews the skin, giving her a fresh face, even though she might not be feeling that way due to lack of sleep.
As you age, the collagen and elastin in your skin diminishes, leading to a loss of suppleness and the appearance of wrinkles. Moisturizers can help to improve the appearance of the face by smoothing the skin.
How Does Penelope Protect Her Skin?
As a mainstay of her skincare regime Penelope uses L’Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 Lotion. Because it is loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid, the lovely actress applies it first so makeup doesn’t accentuate any fine lines. She tells Cosmopolitan, “I always wear moisturizer and sunscreen. Aside from that, I don’t get too complicated. I think simple is best. When I’m not working, I don’t wear makeup…Your skin needs to breathe,” This practical approach to face care prevents sun damage, while deeply nourishing skin without clogging pores.
Ms. Vargas agrees with Penelope Cruz, that simple works best, and that if you are only going to do two things then it better be sun protection and to use a moisturizer. This is because as you age, the collagen and elastin in your skin diminishes, leading to a loss of suppleness and the appearance of wrinkles.
The Beauty Diet for Penelope Cruz?
Penelope’s Mediterranean diet loaded with fish and olive oil provides rich fatty acids like Omega 3 and 6. The essential acids are what lead to healthy silken skin without fail. Olive oil is abundant in antioxidants that offer extra protection from environmental factors, free radicals, toxins and UV solar harm. It also is that ultra moisturizer used for hair and skin to brighten and otherwise dull appearance and relieve dryness that brings about wrinkles.
The dollop of red wine that finishes off Penelope’s meals also reenergizes the body’s defense against pollutants with additional potent antioxidants. The diet of that region has been trusted traditionally to fully nourish the body and skin. Penelope Cruz is proof that it still works beautifully. There are no over the top beauty secrets here, no surgical procedures or far fetched concoctions, just a straight forward natural path to ageless vigor for the global muse that is Ms. Cruz.
The internal care for the skin is done via a nutritious diet and externally with high quality products that resemble one’s diet. This is why Joanna Vargas also recommends her Rejuvenating Serum. This potent product has at its core Argan Oil, scientifically proven to correct age related deficiencies in skin that cause dehydration and loss of skin elasticity. This oil is rich in omega fatty acids and anti-oxidants, and is revered for its anti-aging properties.
