17 Feb 2018

Awards season is in full swing and as we tune in from one glitzy red carpet show to the next, we’re left with the same exact questions - how do the stars maintain such flawless skin? How exactly does their hair remain intact no matter the weather? And most importantly, how can WE achieve the same? Well, our prayers have finally been answered thanks to Intraceuticals' celebrity skincare extraordinaire Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine and London based hair guru Paul Edmonds who have been busy prepping their A-list clients for Sunday night’s EE British Academy Film Awards 2018. Here are their top tips on how you can get red carpet ready at home...

Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine's guide to red carpet-ready skin...

"It’s easy to assume that all celebrities are blessed with naturally perfect skin but this isn’t always the case. The stress of their job, constant travelling, little sleep and makeup on and off their faces can cause havoc on the skin. That's why preparing for award-season usually starts a few months out."

Step 1: Hydrate the skin

"The number one ailment that most of us suffer from is overhaul skin fatigue caused by dehydration. Re-hydrating the skin is crucial to that elusive red-carpet glow. I recommend starting a treatment of Intraceuticals Oxygen Treatments six weeks out from the big event with the last treatment the day before or the day of the event."

"Intraceuticals uses different weights of hyaluronic acid to literally stack the skin with hydration. Using a low-molecular weight of hyaluronic Acid combined with Aloe Vera, green tea and vitamins a, c and e, skin is instantly and visibly revived. To enhance and extend the results of the treatment I suggest using the accompanying Intraceuticals product line. With its patented three-step intralayering system skin takes on an enviable elevation."

Step 2: Use supplements

"I highly recommend using supplements to help strengthen and condition hair, nails, skin and help catch up on that restorative sleep, that so many of us don’t get enough of. My favourite is a brand called Lumity. Taken morning and night, these supplements imbue radiance and markedly increase energy."

Tip 3: If it permits, try ViPeel

"There are two slightly more invasive treatments that can go a long way to making that skin look it’s ultimate best. I’m a big fan of the ViPeel. Combing trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Retina-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol and Vitamin C, the peel targets fine lines and wrinkles and overall pigmentation/tone. I usually recommend this six weeks out and can be paired with Intraceuticals to expedite the healing process."

Paul Edmonds' guide to red carpet-ready hair...

For ultimate glamour this red carpet season, it’s all about the right hair products coupled with electrical styling tools.

Tip 1: Always use heat protector

"When heat styling your hair at home, always use a heat projector such as; L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Constructor or Shu Uemura Art of Hair Blow Dry Beautifier which are the perfect base products to prepare, soften and shape the hair. My favourite follow-on products to add texture, volume and hold are; L’Oréal Professionnel Intra-Cylane Volumetry and Kérastase Styling Spray à Porter."

Tip 2: Stay on trend with classic waves

"The look for the moment is classic waves as hair trends are moving away from beach hair to soft, classic occasion hair. This can easily be achieved at home by using a styling hair tong and taking different sized sections of the hair, placing the tong vertically then twist the hair from the root down to the ends. Once styled, finish with Shu Uemura essence absolute which is a nourishing protective oil that is absorbed by the hair for healthy looking lengths and high shine. If you’re looking for a more edgy and texturised look then try L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers."

Tip 3: Use hair embellishments when creating an up do

"We’ll be seeing fewer updos this Awards season as the formality of wearing updos is changing to a more contemporary style. If you’re thinking about rocking your hair up then I recommend incorporating hair embellishments or oversized hair clips to add a different dynamic to the overall look. These geometric shaped hairpins are a modern-day addition and create a more edgy style when wearing hair to the side."

So there you have it!
