Stars with famous faces know it’s imperative to keep up with beauty regimens to be constantly photo-ready. But keeping up with appearances doesn’t end at having clear skin—and more likely than not, a routine of face wash, moisturizer, and makeup isn’t going to cut it.
Beyond at-home products and remedies, celebrities are always trying the latest and greatest innovations to make themselves appear more beautiful and youthful. From facials to hair-care appointments, there’s no limit to the tools and talented experts these notable names have at their (perfectly manicured) fingertips.
In order to emerge as picture perfect for the paparazzi, here some not-so-secret beauty appointments the rich and famous book on a regular basis.
Madonna at PFRANKMD Skin Salon
Madonna has never been a simple woman, and her skincare routine reflects that notion, as well. The $1,200 Oxylight Facial with MDNA Clay Mask is performed by Edyta Jarosz, exclusively at PFRANKMD Skin Salon in New York City. The 90-minute procedure corrects fine lines, acne, scars, pigmentation, and wrinkles—it also increases collagen production, tightens skin, and fixes other skin issues. It uses LED light, micro-current stimulation, diamond microdermabrasion and more. Dr. Paul Frank is a Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and the Global Skincare Consultant for Madonna's MDNA Skincare line. The OG Material Girl is an on-going and current patient at his practice.
Brie Larson at Lancer Dermatology Clinic
Academy award winners need award-winning skin. Case in point: Actress Brie Larson’s love for the Lancer Legacy Facial at Lancer Dermatology Clinic in Beverly Hills, CA. The skin-tightening procedure is a combo of Oxygen/Vitanome skin therapy where Vitamins C and F as well as collagen, elastin and vegetal tensors, Mimosa Ten and more are applied. The price is based upon consultation, and so is the time span of the treatment, which is performed by Dr. Harold Lancer himself. Patients, like Brie, leave with glowing, younger skin.
Gabourey Sidibe at Base Coat Nail Salon
The 10-free Oxygenating Chrome Gel Manicure and Luxe Coat Pedicure, at Los Angeles’ Base Coat Nail Salon, are favorites of Gabourey Sidibe. The Empire actress loves the relaxing manicure and pedicure service—especially the long massage. Base Coat’s 10-free Oxygenating Chrome Gel Manicure treatment starts by sanitizing hands, cutting and shaping the nail, followed by cuticle work and a light buff before applying the medical-grade gel. Nail beds are cleaned, and a gel base coat is applied. Then two coats of gel color and a no-wipe gel topcoat are added, all before applying the silver metallic chrome pigment and a second no-wipe gel topcoat to seal the pigment. A relaxing five-minute hand and arm massage using Base Coat Body Crème along with applying Base Coat Cuticle Serum concludes the manicure, leaving Sidibe’s nails looking fresh.
Jackie Cruz at Chillhouse
When Orange Is The New Black filming wraps, Actress Jackie Cruz knows where to chill outL Chillhouse. The Head of Massage Programing, Wil Lewis, spends 50 or 80 minutes giving the Netflix star a Swedish-style massage combined with stretching techniques that focusing on relaxing the muscles. The rub down, aka The Stretch Armstrong, found on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, costs $80 or $115, depending on timespan chosen.
Jay Manuel at BeautyRx’s Peel Bar
America got to know Jay Manuel from America’s Next Top Model. Offscreen, the TV personality keeps up his glow by visiting BeautyRx’s Peel Bar. The two-minute, no-downtime glycolic peel involves a cleansing towel, an exfoliating solution and neutralization of the solution. Sunscreen is applied afterward. The process removes dirt and debris as well as dead skin. It costs $50 when performed by a tech at a peel bar location. Dr. Neal Schultz’s conducts the peels himself, too, at his New York City office. Those, however, will cost you $225.
