5 Celebrity Skincare Secrets Revealed by Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner Anush Movsesian
Whether on screen, on the red carpet, or through the paparazzi lens, celebrities almost always have flawless and gorgeous skin. Like the rest of us, they have days where their skin breaks out or is flaky, or even has wrinkles and fine lines. They, however, have ways of ensuring that the breakouts or acne are at a minimum. Anush Movsesian, a cosmetic nurse practitioner in West Hollywood, knows some of the skin secrets that celebrities follow to ensure that their skin remains flawless.
Movsesian, 35, is a successful and sought-after cosmetic nurse in West Hollywood. She attended West Coast University, graduating with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After graduation, she immediately worked with a renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for three years and developed her skills as an injector and skin specialist. She then studied for a Master's degree at Charles Drew University, where she graduated as a nurse practitioner. As a popular skin consultant, she knows some of the skincare secrets used by celebrities to maintain flawless skin.
Remove makeup every night before bed
This is an essential step that, according to Movsesian, most people forget about. "You come home after work or a night out, you're tired, and you jump into bed without removing your makeup. This is not good for your skin," she says. "You should use a gentle makeup remover to clean your face before you sleep."
Eat your water
Everyone knows that water is excellent for the skin, and we all aim to drink eight glasses of water in a day. Too much water, however, ends up purging vital minerals from the body. "An easy way to ensure that you take enough water is to both drink and eat your water. Eating water basically means eating hydrating fruits and vegetables with high water content such as cucumbers, watermelons, and celery," advises Movsesian.
Protect your skin against the sun
The recommended way to protect your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays is by using a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF. According to Anush, any efforts to take care of your skin are wasted if you don't protect it against harmful rays. Sunscreen should always be among your skincare products.
Stick to a program
New skincare products that promise miracles are being released every day, making it is easy to give in to temptation and buy them as soon as they are launched. Piling products on your skin can be counterproductive; instead, you should stick to what has always worked for you. "Keep it simple; use the least number of products needed," says Movsesian.
Get enough sleep
A good night's sleep is beneficial for healthy skin. According to Movsesian, your skin makes new collagen when you're sleeping. Collagen is useful in preventing sagging of the skin. Lack of proper rest causes cortisol, the stress hormone, to be released, resulting in skin flare-ups and acne.
Good skin is not a miracle that happens overnight, but following Movsesian's advice is certainly the first step in the journey to clear and flawless skin.
