Halle Berry's Secret

ML got the inside scoop from Halle's facialist on how she keeps her skin looking so perfect, and what we can do to maintain that summer glow too.

Expert tips from celebrity skin care expert Olga Lorencin, co-owner of the celeb-frequented Kinara Spa.

1. Sunblock, sunblock, sunblock. Put one in your glove compartment and carry one in your purse so there's always one within reach.
2. If you tend to break out, make sure sunblock is oil-free. Some suggestions? Neutrogena oil-free sunblock. $7.49
3. In a hot tropical place? Make sure your sunblock contails Zinc for added protection. Blue Lizard SPF30 is great for mom and baby because it's chemical free. $9.99
4. If possible, have a professional treatment at the beginning of the season to unclog pores so you can start fresh. Breakouts during the summer months are often due to an increase in sunblock application.
5. If a professional treatment is not an option, try a homecare facial. It will cut through the dead skin to reveal a more glowing complexion. Suggestions? Kinara Red Carpet facial Kit. $145 (you can get 32 facials out of this set!)
6. Have a sunburn? Make a compress of plain yogurt or cold black tea to calm/heal your skin. Then, dab on aloe vera gel. You can do the same for your little ones, but of course, take every precaution to make sure this doesn't happen.
7. Don't try to bleach your skin during the summer months. Products containing bleaching agents should be used after the summer heat is gone. Use a good anti-oxidant serum every morning to protect your skin. Suggestions: Skinceuticals CE and Ferulic Acid Serum. $139 but Olga swears it prevents premature aging.

i love that you give tips but with a real budget. Thank you. who can afford to spend what the stars do, noone. And by the way, most of us don’t even live near a spa so thank you.
