This is why celebrities rev up their skincare routine, facials, diet and exercise for weeks prior and sometimes months for red carpet events.

Her tips:

Usually for red carpets, we take a month to prepare the skin. My Triple Crown Facial is an awesome treatment to get before an event and is favored by my celebrity clients before a shoot or the red carpet. I use a mild electric current to drain puffiness, tone muscle and tighten skin. There is no downtime and people love the instant effect and long term effects. I usually recommend this facial once a month. Another secret weapon I use is a treatment called the Power Peel. It’s a detoxifying, resurfacing peel followed by LED therapy and oxygen to make any celebrity look like they have spent the last month in a health spa. Their glow is restored, and all the tired dehydrated skin is gone. One celeb tends to get nervous before awards shows. She will get a breakout right before which can be super demoralizing, so I will dab a little bit of my Exfoliating Mask on her during the triple crown facial and it flattens pimples right away.
