Miranda Kerr uses crystals in her beauty routine

OHMYGOSSIP — Miranda Kerr uses crystals as part of her skincare routine.
The former Victoria’s Secret model has revealed that as part of her morning beauty regime, she applies the Glow Face Oil from her beauty line KORA Organics – using a rose quartz crystal to massage the product into her skin.
In an interview with Australian Vogue, she said: “I find that my face, especially in the morning, is really puffy so massaging it is really such a good way to stimulate circulation.
I notice a big difference with my skin when I use this crystal because I just feel that it wakes up my skin and it reduces the puffiness. It improves circulation and the way that it curves, you can really get into the jawline and you can get into the eye area and you can just wake up those certain areas and you can really promote that lymphatic drainage that eliminates the toxins.”
The 35-year-old star – who has seven-year-old son Flynn Christopher Bloom from a previous relationship with actor Orlando Bloom, and four-month-old son Hart Spiegel with her husband, Evan Spiegel – has admitted that her routine has somewhat changed since becoming a mother.
She said: “It’s got to be simple, quick and easy, I get in my cleanse and moisturiser routine and I do my mask and I put on my oil and its things that are quick and easy.”
Miranda swears by her brand’s organic oil to give her a radiant complexion, and her 28-year-old husband has started using the product and it has completely altered the appearance of his skin.
She said: “I wouldn’t be able to live without that morning and night and it is the same with my husband. He uses it more than I do at night too and it completely has changed his skin.”

Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

My Facial Moisturizing Routine

I have naturally dry skin on my face and neck. I keep it thoroughly moisturized and hydrated with five layers of product. I apply all five in the morning, and only the first three in the evening. I used to layer four products in the morning, but hot yoga dries out my skin, so I recently added the fifth. 

I use an essential oil, serum, moisturizer, sunscreen and tinted moisturizer. Three of the products are from French Caudalie, one from Japanese Nivea, and one from French-American Laura Mercier. The exact products that I use are in this collection:

It’s important that the essential oil goes onto a clean face. The idea is that you apply moisture — like Caudalie’s Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil — to your skin first so that moisturizers and sunscreen are more effectively absorbed afterwards. A moist sponge is more absorbent than a dry one — and the same applies to your skin.

I apply a serum for extra moisture as the second layer, and a moisturizer for dry skin as the third. Sunscreen is the fourth layer despite the weather or season. I don’t use foundation because I don’t fancy the visual effect of the coverage. Instead I use a tinted moisturizer for dry skin as the last layer. It’s illuminating, shiny and doesn’t hide the uneven skin tone on my face, which keeps it looking more natural and a better match to the rest of the skin on my body. I don’t apply powder because it dries out my skin and creates a matte look. I prefer a dewy look with a bit of shine.

Over to you. What’s your facial moisturizing routine, and do you stick to a strict layering order like I do?

Find your Best Post-Workout Routine

What do you do after you exercise? If you ask 10 people, you’ll get 10 different answers. There’s a lot of misinformation when it comes to a routine after working out, and in fact, most people don’t have one. But this part shouldn’t be overlooked, because it’s just as important.

Why have a post-workout routine?

Many consider themselves done after the main portion of an exercise session, but there are research-supported benefits associated with post-workout practices. Think Rs: “It’s important to use recovery as a time to refresh, renew, restore, restock, resynthesize, refuel, rehydrate, and rest,” says Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN, the owner of Active Eating Advice — a nutrition consulting company — who counts professional sports teams among her clients. This includes stretching, icing if necessary, and cooling down.

Taking this time to care for you will enhance the recovery process and lead to improved fitness and performance, says Jessica Matthews, MS, award-winning fitness instructor and senior advisor for health and fitness education for The American Council on Exercise.

Myths

Have you been told not to eat anything post-exercise if you’re trying to lose weight because you just burned calories and you want to be in deficit, that you should just have protein after lifting, or that you need to eat after every workout? With “advice” like this, it’s no wonder many of us are confused.

Think Rs: “It’s important to use recovery as a time to refresh, renew, restore, restock, resynthesize, refuel, rehydrate, and rest,” – Leslie Bonci, Active Eating Advice

In fact, the number one thing women mentioned when asked about a post-workout routine was protein, as in having a high protein snack or protein shake after exercise. However, focusing exclusively on consuming protein is a misconception.

Obviously, refueling after exercise is important in order to replenish energy and increase protein synthesis to facilitate muscle repair and recovery, says Matthews. Based on the science of nutrient timing, a large body of evidence shows that it’s most optimal to consume a combination of carbohydrates and protein in approximately a 3:1 ratio (or 2:1 ratio if the goal is to lose weight), she adds. If possible, this means consuming within 30 minutes post exercise. Note that the duration and intensity of the workout will influence the amount of refueling necessary. For example, says Bonci, if you exercise vigorously for at least an hour and it’ll be a few hours until your next meal, you should eat something.

Similarly, she says, it’s not true that vegetarians or vegans won’t be able to consume an adequate amount of protein needed to build and repair muscle. Studies show that a variety of quality plant-based protein sources (soy, nuts, seeds, beans, leafy greens, quinoa, etc.) is sufficient.

Fuel & hydration

So how do you figure out the amounts? Bonci suggests the following: If you strength train, the food ratio should be 3:1 carb to protein (like non-fat Greek yogurt). If it’s post-endurance exercise, the ratio should be 4:1 carb to protein. An example of a post-endurance snack is Greek yogurt with fruit or granola.

Other snack suggestions from Bonci that you can modify for either strength or endurance include: a [healthy] smoothie, half of a peanut butter sandwich and a glass of milk, a 200 calorie bar with 10-20 grams of protein and at least 30 grams of carbs, or cottage cheese and fruit. A protein drink can be used as long as it’s not low carb.

“Don’t forget about the importance of listening to your body,” says Bonci. “If you’re hungry post-workout, eat. Skipping meals typically results in over-consuming later.

A protein drink isn’t quite the same as a smoothie, by the way. Protein drinks tend to be higher in protein (of course), lower in carbs, and some are lower in calories than smoothies. A protein drink usually has protein powder in it mixed with a liquid, while smoothies are blended drinks made from whole ingredients like fruits. Protein shakes are convenient, portable options, but consuming whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats and whole grains have the added benefit of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, says Matthews. These support the recovery process and are important to consider as part of a well-rounded approach to nutrition. A small smoothie made with Greek yogurt and fruit would be ideal, says Bonci.

In terms of hydration, the recommendation is 20-24 ounces of fluid for every pound lost, Bonci says. Vitamins or supplements shouldn’t be included in the post-workout regimen, but if you have low Vitamin D, low ferritin, have a history of osteoporosis, or are a vegan, then you might need calcium D, iron, or B12, she adds.

“Don’t forget about the importance of listening to your body,” says Bonci. “If you’re hungry post-workout, eat. Skipping meals typically results in over-consuming later. Bring something with you to workouts if you know you’re going to be busy for several hours after, so you won’t be without fuel for too long.”

In addition to the optimal carb-protein ratio already discussed, Matthews says other considerations for post-workout nutrition include easily and rapidly digestible carbs and protein, inclusion of amino acids (like leucine and glutamine) to aid in protein synthesis, consumption of antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E to help repair tissues and prevent damage to cells, and inclusion of potassium for electrolyte balance. She shares some examples:

  • Banana: rapidly digestible carb and good source of potassium
  • Kiwi: high in antioxidants, such as vitamin C (one kiwi contains over 100 percent of the recommended daily value)
  • Whey protein: high quality, easily digestible protein containing amino acids
  • Spinach: good source of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E (1 cup contains 25 percent of the recommended daily value)
  • Coconut water: beneficial for rehydration and to balance electrolytes
  • Almond milk: good source of vitamin E (1 cup of unsweetened almond milk contains 50 percent of the recommended daily value)

Matthews has come up with the perfect post-workout smoothie based on science.

At only 300 calories, it offers just the right amount of sweetness while packing a nutritional punch. She says the consistency provides both a refreshing and satisfying feeling. “It even includes 7 grams of fiber, which is over 25 percent of the recommended daily fiber intake for women),” says Matthews.

NSAIDs

All this exercising is liable to make you sore. But don’t immediately reach for the medicine cabinet. An article in Runner’s World about anti-inflammatories says that they can harm the training process. As the article says, “the basic means of improving fitness goes like this: Provide stress to body; after workout, recover; during recovery, body adapts to better handle such stress in the future; repeat. Many runners add another step after the first one, namely, gobble anti-inflammatories to deal with aches and pains.”

As the article says, research suggests that long-term non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin or ibuprofen can actually be detrimental and inhibit a workout’s effectiveness. It’s best not to make this a regular part of your training or exercise regimen, but if you’re unusually sore after a workout, it’s probably ok to take for a day or two.

Lauren Conrad’s makeup artist tells us the *one* skin care product we’re missing from our routine

Lauren Conrad’s makeup artist tells us the *one* skin care product we’re missing from our routine


Lauren Conrad’s makeup artist tells us the *one* skin care product we’re missing from our routine

In the past few months there’s been a real push-back from beauty experts when it comes to skin cleansing — gone are the days of using harsh scrubs and foaming cleansers that strip your skin anytime you use them. Gentler, more natural methods, like oil cleansing, are sweeping the scene, but few techniques have grown in popularity quite like the rise of Micellar Water. Up until quite recently, our options here in the states have been quite limited, but thanks to Amy Nadine’s new Micellar Cleansing Water, jumping on the bandwagon is as easy as taking a quick trip to your friendly neighborhood Costco.

Amy Nadine’s Micellar Cleansing Water is now available for $ 14.99.

This three-in-one micellar water cleanses, tones your skin, and removes makeup all in one go. It’s formulated with white tea, which is rich in anti-oxidants and coconut water to hydrate and replenish your skin.

According to Amy Nadine, micellar water is the one thing we ~need~ to add to our skin care routine.

Here’s the thing: she is a celebrity makeup artist whose work you’ve seen in every major fashion magazine in the past few years. She’s worked with Lauren Conrad, Susan Sarandon, and Krysten Ritter, to name a few. And she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to beauty.

Our lovely @laurenconrad at the @rebeccaminkoff Fashion Show today with hair by @ryanrichman and makeup by me!

A post shared by A M Y N A D I N E 💄 👑 (@amynadinemakeup) on

So why did the celeb makeup artist come out with a micellar water instead of a makeup product?

Let’s just say Amy is all about gorgeous skin, and she believes using micellar water is what we’re missing from our skin care routine. She told HelloGiggles,

“My husband is French, and every time we spend time at his friends’ home in Paris, I talk to the women about their gorgeous skin. When it comes to makeup we mostly use the same products but in regards to skin care, none of them believe in “washing their faces” — no face wash, no splashing with water until it’s squeaky clean. That concept seems really weird and foreign to them while to us, it seems crazy not to wash our faces!”

She explains that instead of washing their faces with traditional cleansers like we do, they use micellar water. While the use of micellar water may be a new concept on this side of the pond, it’s a total no-brainer with the fine folks in France.

Mama's got a new 70's shag! Thank you @pamwiggy!

A post shared by A M Y N A D I N E 💄 👑 (@amynadinemakeup) on

Whether your skin is oily, flaky, irritated, dry, or acne-prone, micellar water will do it some major good.

Amy thinks it’s a total lifesaver,

“I added it to my routine two years ago and my skin is so much calmer, clearer, and more balanced. My skin is actually cleaner than when I’ve used face wash. If you don’t believe me, wash your face, exfoliate it, and then wipe a cotton pad soaked in my micellar water and inspect it afterward. You’ll die at what it picked up that the face wash and scrub left behind! It’s wild that something so moisturizing is also so powerful at cleansing.”

We love when makeup artists develop their own lines, because who better to know what skin needs and how best to care for it? Amy noted that her work as a makeup artist influences the kind of products she makes, and she works to keep her clients’ skin looking radiant and alive.

“Every product I pitch has to have skin care properties in it. And any skin care products I create have to keep the skin happy and hydrated. Skin is everything!”

Few things make us as happy as when women create accessible, affordable products that help us feel good and keep our skin healthy. Off to Costco we go, because Amy has made a serious case for micellar water, and now we must add it to our routine.

Of course Martha Stewart’s morning routine is way more ambitious than yours

Media mogul and homemaking hero Martha Stewart knows a thing or two about running of a business empire while pursuing life’s simple pleasures.

In a new run-down of her daily habits with The Cut, Stewart described her days, which includes waking at sunrise to greet her three cats, five dogs and thirty canaries.

“I generally read the New York Times right away. I have my iPad right next to my bed and I do the mini-crossword puzzle — if I haven’t done it before I go to bed, because the new one is posted around midnight. It’s sort of a habit I have,” she explained of her early-morning routine.

After letting out her cats and turning a special light on for her many canaries (“They’re very healthy canaries”), Stewart will hit the gym with her two French bulldogs. This all happens before breakfast, which includes a small cappuccino (“with whole milk”), a homemade green juice and some food: she’s into soft-boiled eggs, wheat germ or spelt. Finally, Stewart heads out on her hour-or-more commute to Manhattan, during which she’ll read not one but three newspapers (the Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Post) and take calls.

The secret to it all, though, might just be those fresh eggs.

“Most people who have chickens will tell you their chickens stop laying in the wintertime. And mine never stop laying… I really think it’s attributed to the fresh food that they get, all year round,” she mused. “I mean, the yolks of my eggs taste better than any you’ve ever had.” Sounds like a good way to kick off a day.
