Use gentle products like Pearl 

There’s nothing Pearl Thusi hates more than dry skin. If you suffer with dry skin during winter, then the actress has a few tips for you. “My pet peeve is having dry skin or cracked lips so I always carry a hand cream and lip balm,” she told Beauty South Africa in a 2013 interview.

When it comes to selecting skin products, she believes the gentler the product the better.

“I love cleansers that are gentle and have microfoliants in them that give me a nice exfoliation. I try to stay away from harsh toners with lots of alcohol in them. My moisturiser is also very gentle. The more gentle the product, the better. I also started using eye-cream from an early age.”

Less is more like Tumi

Celebrities are known to wear layers of makeup every day, but Tumi Voster believes it is important to give your skin a break.

“Less is more. Keep it simple and natural. Never get used to makeup; it’s always important to give your skin a break on days where makeup is not needed,” she told Bona magazine.

Cleanse, tone and moisturise like LeAnne 

LeAnne Dlamini’s secret to taking care of your skin daily is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

“It’s pretty simple: cleanse, tone and moisturise. I barely go for facials or do masks unless I have free time or am feeling fancy at home,” she told W24.
