How to Glow Like a Celeb at the Emmys
Many dermatologists say that they treat celebrities, but thanks to that pesky doctor/patient confidentiality law, they don't have to back up their star-studded claims with actual names. However, there are a few derms who are known in the beauty industry for having a client list that reads like a who's who in Hollywood, and Dr. Jessica P. Wu, a dermatologist in Los Angeles, is one of them. For the month leading up to the Emmys, Dr. Wu was working seven days a week on many of the famous faces you saw on the red carpet, including a slew of nominees. And while she won't tell us who did what to prep for the cameras (trust us, we begged), she was willing to share the same advice she gives to her celeb clients during awards season. Here are Dr. Wu's tips for looking glowy — no appointment, chemical peel, or laser treatment necessary.
Exfoliate once or twice a week with a gentle scrub like Philosophy The Microdelivery Mini Peel Pads for face and Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish for body.
Hydrate at night with a moisturizer that contains skin-plumping hyaluronic acid like Nude Skincare Moisture Balance.
Brush a shimmer powder over the apples of your cheeks. Wu likes the best-selling Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, which comes in several shades.
Use a body bronzer on shoulders, arms, and legs. Wu recommends Scott Barnes Body Bling.
