Fight Blemishes Like Cameron Diaz

Some people are born with great looks. Cameron Diaz is definitely one of those people. However, just because she was born that way doesn't mean she doesn't have to work at maintaining her looks.

Cameron Diaz's skin requires diligent care because of her acneic complexion. “She's conscious of it and goes to great measures to handle and correct it,” says her aesthetician, Christopher Watt. “Uneven skin tone, sun damage and hyperpigmentation are issues that also plague her complexion,” he says. “I regularly do microdermabrasion on her, with a lactic acid peel. And she likes oxygen facials, too. I also put her under a blue LED light to lessen breakouts and do microcurrent work to tighten and tone.”

If all that sounds like gibberish, here's the breakdown-

Microdermabrasion: In this facial exfoliation procedure, the top layer of skin is abraded away with ultrafine crystals of aluminum oxide or other ingredients. Doing this improves and smoothes the skin's surface and minimizes imperfections like blemishes, fine lines and signs of sun damage.

Lactic Acid Peel: A gentle in-office peel that is usually recommended for oily and dry skin for treating fine lines, acne scars and smoothing out roughness. Derived from sour milk, lactic acid peels also offer a subtle lightening effect.

Oxygen Facial: Using a machine with pressurized oxygen, an aesthetician sprays atomized moisturizers onto the facial skin to smooth and plump it.

Blue LED Light: Used as an anti-inflammatory and bacteria reducer, blue LED light is a facial therapy well-suited for acne patients. This basically works by stimulating cellular renewal deep within tissue and penetrating molecules that cause acne bacteria to form.

Microcurrents: This is a toning a firming treatment that uses electric stimulation to tighten and lift skin.
