Here are the top 4 celebrity beauty tips you need!
#1 – Properly Hydrate Your Body Daily
Our body is comprised of more than 70% water, we must replenish. Best Water source is from Fruits and Veggies, drinking pure water i a healthy alternative.
Simple Water Calculation:
Step 1: Take your weight and Divide by 2. This is the amount of “room temperature” pure water in ounces, you will need to consume for optimal body function. DO NOT exceed 128 ounces daily (prevent water intoxication)
Step 2: Take your amount and divide by 4. For ease of swallowing, consume water with a straw. You will consume this amount 4 times during the day:
· In the morning with Breakfast
· During midday with Lunch
· Before, During After Workout
· In the evening with a Light Dinner
Note: Increase water consumption daily if you participate in strenuous activity, excessive sun exposure, wind, or high elevation to prevent dehydration.

#2 – Get Arches Like The Stars
Some of the most coveted eyebrow shapes are that of Jennifer Lopez, Tyra Banks, Catherine Zeta Jones and Angelina Jolie. See if your face shape matches up with these beauties to get the perfect brow for you!
· Jennifer Lopez- Her rounded, medium arch is the perfect fullness and beautifully compliments for her heart shaped face.
· Tyra Banks – Her higher arch perfectly complements her higher cheekbones and oval face.
· Catherine Zeta Jones- For her round face, Catherine's slightly higher arch gives the illusion of a more elongated, oval face.
· Angelina Jolie- Her soft arches balance the angles in her face and are arches complimentary to the angels in the jawbone.
To determine the actual shape of your face, Before look straight in a mirror and use a dry-erase marker or eyeliner to trace the shape of your face onto the mirror. Step away and look at the shape to see if you have a round, heart, oval or square shape.

#3 – Tan Like An Artist
EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE! Use exfoliating gloves and a body scrub together to really get the job done and remember to focus on extra dry areas such as your knees and elbows.
PREPARATION IS KEY! Apply a tiny bit of regular body lotion to those dry areas so the body absorbs that first, instead of the self-tanner. Grab a pair of tight fitting disposable gloves to apply the product so your palms don’t turn dark brown and you don’t have to constantly wash your hands!
MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL! Make sure you stand in front of a full-length mirror so you can see exactly where you have applied the product or any potential streaking.
BREAK IT UP! Apply the product to your body in sections starting from your legs, moving upwards. Here's a "How-To" video in case you need extra guidance: http://www.beautisol.com/HowtoVideos.aspx
BUFF IT OUT! Take a dry wash cloth and gently buff trouble areas such as the elbows, knees and the back of the heels. You can also use a Q-Tip to wipe product away from dark spots on your face so they don’t get darker.
DARK AND COMFY! Always tan at night that way you can put on dark loose fitting clothing such as sweats or PJ's and just go to sleep and process through the night.
MAINTAIN THAT GLOW! On the days following your self-tan application put on a light moisturizer and pat dry your skin after a shower vs. rubbing. About four days later start gently exfoliating your body so the color fades more evenly.

#4 – Acupuncture
Acupuncture treatments have long been associated with pain alleviation but this traditional Chinese medicine can also be used to rejuvenate skin. Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is a natural alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery that provides many of the same results.
The practice of cosmetic acupuncture has been used in Hollywood for years with celebrity fans including Angelina Jolie, Sean Connery, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
A holistic medicine practitioner places a series of ultra-fine painless needles into and around wrinkles, facial muscles and pressure points. The placement of these needles increases collagen production as well as blood and lymph circulation to the face and scalp.
Benefits include the prevention of wrinkle formation, minimization of fine lines and improvement in the process by which skin regulates its quality and appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture additionally accelerates anti-inflammatory activity and removes toxins from the skin, resulting in a youthful glow.
Cosmetic acupuncture may help a variety of skin worries including wrinkles, brow furrows, sagging skin, a drooping jaw line, age spots, acne, crow's feet and many more.
This procedure is generally offered through holistic health practitioners and at certain spas. Results are not immediate and patients often schedule cosmetic acupuncture in cycles of 10 treatments. Talk to your practitioner to determine what treatment plan is best for you to achieve beautiful, glowing skin.
