Charlize Theron’s Super skin secret
Published 05/10/2012 | 12:06
Charlize loved her Ole Henrikson skin brightening treatment so much the brand made an on-the-go version she could use on set.
Hollywood skin does come in a box apparently. South African beauty Charlize Theron swears by her Ole Henriksen Power Peel Kit, feelunique.com, when filming.
She packs them when on location, and if her perfect, glowing skin is anything to go by they obviously pack a serious smoothing and polishing skin perfecting punch.
According to Ole, everyone over 25 should use a gentle face peel, "because in the same way you keep your body fit in the gym, a gentle peel gets your skin working harder again, improving your tone and texture, plus letting anything you use over the top work harder for you."
But don't overdo it; his tip is to pay attention to your skin. "All my celebrity clients really look at their skin to see how it's behaving. So do as they do, take a mirror and look at your skin in broad daylight.
If it's tight, red or uncomfortable you've overdone it and it's time to change your routine."
The rule is that while glycolic is found in most peeling products (at different levels) lactic acid is the most mild. But we're told that Charlize's favourite Power Peel Kit will suit all our skin.
We're also going to start supping Ole's A List Skin Smoothie, because a tablespoon of flaxseed oil, half an apple, half an orange, half a banana, a scoop of protein powder, eight blueberries and a dash of coconut oil later we too could glow like Charlize.
