Worldwide famous celebrities, as unbelievable as this might sound, are people too. This means that they have also struggled with various problems throughout the years, and this includes skin issues. Thankfully, some of those famous people have decided to unite their forces with various skin care lines and endorse them or even create their own brands, in the hope of helping many other people cope with their insecurities. From anti-acne products to skincare and cosmetics, celebrities have done it all. This is the reason why in this article, we will be talking about 5 famous skincare lines that famous celebrities are endorsing in their journey to lead by example or own, and help everyone else cope with their individual problems.
Proactive skin care lines endorsed by Adam Levine
Cool alternative rock superstar Adam Levine (39), who is the frontman of the super successful band Maroon 5, but also a loving husband and father of a beautiful daughter, is probably one of the most unexpected people to endorse a skincare line. Yes, his look is impeccable and his popularity continuously growing, but who would have thought that he once had acne problems too? The truth is that he had them and even talked about his high-school experiences while battling this problem, as most teenagers still do.
There are a lot of causes for acne starting with hormonal imbalances and continuing with poor hygiene, lack of sleep, and even stress. The pro-acne hormones that everyone has are the ones that produce the sebum that causes those nasty breakouts on the skin.
Well, when it comes to Levine, he admits that his hectic lifestyle that includes sleepless nights, work, and a lot of stress also causes problems on his skin from time to time. He says that nobody should, for one second believe that celebrities do not have these kinds of problems. Moreover, according to him, Proactiv’s three-step program is able to renew, revitalize, and repair the skin in a short time so you can gain your confidence back. This is truly a lead-by-example kind of situation and considering Levine’s level of fame, he most definitely does a good job at endorsing this skincare line.
Honest Beauty by Jessica Alba
The official launch of Jessica Alba’s (37) brand called Honest Beauty happened back in 2015. The interesting thing is that after this paraben-free, mineral oil-free and the synthetic fragrance-free line made her a billionaire entrepreneur (as recognized by Forbes Magazine), she had decided that instead of expanding rapidly, it would be good to actually have their focus right. So, the next step she did was to cut from about 80 different products (including makeup, skin care, and hair care) and basically reduce the entire collection by 50%, giving focuses on the products that it should have been given in the first place. It was a bold and unexpected move, but she had the entire plan prepared.
This year, Alba decided to go at it again and relaunched her brand with only about half of the products that were initially available. However, the singer, actress, and entrepreneur is not worried at all and says that this decision had to do with the fact that this line is completely clean and therefore, the choices needed to be easy. People needed to know what to choose from and hundreds of products were not helping, on the contrary. Now, the skin care, hair care, and make-up products represent not only clean but also high-quality and easy alternatives at affordable prices.
Goop Skincare by Gwyneth Paltrow
A while ago, in order to expand her already-booming business called Goop, which started back in 2008 as a lifestyle brand and then expanded into the fashion industry, e-commerce, sport, fragrances, and a magazine, Academy Award-winning actress and entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow (46) teamed up with Juice Beauty, a company that creates non-toxic beauty products. This is how Goop Skincare came to be, a brand that doesn’t use any toxic ingredients and which is both effective and luxurious, Paltrow says. However, she endorses her brand as being at least as good as those “traditional” products that are full of toxins, plastics, and other dangerous ingredients.
It’s like taking organic to the next level, according to her. Things like Vitamin C, apple, lemon, aloe, peptides, and hyaluronic acid all help your skin become better, especially with age. Paltrow promises some very natural effects on the skin from a skin care line that is good for all ages and not only promises but also delivers, in all-natural fashion.
Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr
Australian superstar model and mother of two boys Miranda Kerr (35) co-founded the company called KORA Organics back in 2009. She managed to do this by requesting the help of numerous aromatherapists, organic chemists, and formulators, all of them Australian-born. The initiative began after Kerr realized that, beyond being a model, she could use her prior education in nutrition and health psychology to help people. The brand offers a wide range of organic and natural skin care products, all manufactured in Melbourne. They are all destined for face and body and some of the most important ingredients in them are Noni extract, water energized with rose quartz, Vitamin A, E, and C, rosehip seed oil, and many others.
It’s worth noting that, apart from only two products (a lip balm and a cleansing bar), all the others are also vegan. Moreover, they are cruelty-free, which is something that Kerr strongly believes in. In fact, her philosophy is that healthy skin is the most beautiful kind of skin. It takes only the best ingredients to maintain our largest organ in its best shape, which is why she went so far in her journey to offer people a healthier alternative when it comes to skin care. KORA Organics promises to deliver products that detoxify, revitalize, and nourish the skin. Moreover, according to them, it’s all about enriching the spirit in a beneficial and healthy way, which is why their products have such incredible and long-lasting results.
Nuance by Salma Hayek
Actress, model, producer, and entrepreneur Salma Hayek (52) launched her own line of skin care, hair care, and cosmetics called Nuance back in 2011 because she wanted to make some exotic ingredients and ancient beauty secrets more accessible to women everywhere. In North America, her products can be found at the CVS stores. And speaking of unique ingredients, some of those are Monoi flower, which is extremely nourishing for the skin and is mostly used in lip products, Mimosa bark extract, which makes the skin smooth and minimizes imperfections, and blue agave extract. The latter is a natural humectant which strongly hydrates the skin and calms it in case of itches, irritations, or any other problems.
Hayek’ idea about beauty is that every woman should love what she sees in the mirror. That is the only way to achieve happiness and self-confidence. Through this brand, she wants to encourage everyone to do this with products that not only use exotic and special ingredients but which are also beneficial and effective on the skin. Her Mexican background definitely helped her in this journey as she admitted that she took inspiration from this culture and from the beauty rituals that women once performed and still do in that part of the world. It seems that after all, even celebrities are connected with the places that they came from and they do not cease to inspire and guide them, even when they’re no longer there.
All in all, it’s crystal clear that celebrities, as famous as they may be, still like to think about ordinary people’s problems, especially if they’re skin-related and can be solved. The skin care lines that they endorse or own all have a purpose, and that’s usually to make people’s lives easier. Some lines are luxurious and not that affordable, while others are accessible and can be found in a lot of places. The point is that no matter how famous you become, you should never forget to give back and offer something to the world. In this case, it is products that can solve self-esteem issues, regardless of the sex and age of the person using them. Actually, influence is one of the most important parts of being so famous. When you have a voice, let it be heard.
