Are you headed to an Oscar party this weekend or will you spend the evening in the comfort of your own home? Regardless of what you choose to do on Oscar Sunday, the Academy Awards is a time to look and feel your best! Celebs never skimp before awards night and neither should you. Beauty expert, Rebekah George joined me for an interview this morning to discuss the must haves you need to look red carpet ready on Oscar night (and the entire year)!
Candace Rose: With the Oscars nearly upon us, how can we get our hair and skin red carpet ready?
Rebekah George: “Well, one thing you want to do is really pay attention to your hair with using a weekly treatment. I love this line by Shea Moisture. This is their Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth and Repair. It’s an entire line of products, but I really love their weekly therapy. So after shampooing, you would use this product. It’s rich in protein, it also is phthalate and paraben free. It’s going to help deal with the frizz, the flyways and also restore shine and dryness that we get from using the flat iron and the hot tools. It’s only $9.99 and you can find it at Target.”
Candace Rose: What’s the key to a perfect complexion?
Rebekah George: “One thing you want to do to get a glow is this product from Perfectly Pure. It’s their Moroccan Argan oil that’s rich in essential fatty acids and also vitamin E. I love it because it’s an all-in-one product, so you just take a few drops and massage it into your skin. You can even use it on your cuticles, even on flyways in a pinch. It’s $28, you can find it at PerfectlyPure.com.
Now, celebrities when they get a breakout rush to their dermatologist office for light therapy. This is new from Illumask (please see video above for details), it’s their anti acne light therapy mask. You’ll notice it has all these little lights in there. It’s the same kind of technology that you would find at your dermatologist office. It’s clinically proven to help reduce breakouts, prevent future breakouts and also calm the inflammation that we get from breakouts. It’s only $30, you use it for 15 minutes a day, it has little slits in the eyes so you can go about your business. It boils down to about a dollar a day- not too bad for celeb worthy skin. You can find it at stores like Walmart and Ulta.
Finally for your skin, you want to have bright even skin tone. New from Burt’s Bees is their Brightening Collection. It’s an entire line of products made with daisy extract which is an ingredient found in nature that naturally lightens brown spots. I really like the On the Spot Dark Spot Corrector. So if you have brown spots, you would apply this directly to them. It’s clinically proven to reduce brown spots. In eight weeks 80% of women noticed diminished brown spots. It ranges from $10 to $20. You can find it at BurtsBees.com and in drugstores near you.
What are you doing for the Academy Awards? Are you going out or are you staying home and wearing jeans and a t-shirt? I say look like a celebrity with the right accessories. These are from Charming Charlie (please see video above for details) it’s from their RSVP collection. It’s so fantastic because you can basically dress up anything you have in your closet for a fraction of the price. Everything is under $50 – everything from blinged out statement necklaces to clutches, earrings, even the bracelets I’m wearing. They’re only $13. So just take a basic outfit you have, throw these on and you’ll look like a celeb. They’re available at CharmingCharlie.com.
