She’s revered the world over as a style icon and a modern-day classic beauty.
But who knew Kate Middleton was so clued up when it comes to her skin and beauty regime?
Take notes, because you and your skincare could learn a thing or two from this Duchess.
Use a face oil
US weekly reported that Kate overhauled her beauty routine when falling pregnant. To avoid using potentially harmful ingredients, Kate is said to be a fan of Trilogy’s Organic Rosehip Oil, apparently applauding the glow boosting and anti-wrinkle effects of the oil.
Schedule a trim
Philippe Tholimet, Hair Stylist and Viviscal ambassador shared his thoughts on Kate’s new shorter-do that she revealed at Wimbledon earlier this year: “Having a significant amount chopped off the length will get rid of split ends and cut dry unhealthy bits. Long hair can look stringy and thinner at the ends, a shorter cut will make hair look thicker and fuller. Some people say if you do it on a full moon the hair will grow fuller and faster.
“A mid-length cut is a great universal choice as it would suit any face shape. It’s a popular choice with women as it’s flattering, low-maintenance and versatile. What the hairstylist will need to make work with the face is creating layers or not and where the parting will sit. The rounder the face is,the more layers you will need to create trying to elongate the face.”
Keep your nails neutral
Kate is never seen with a bold, bright manicure, preferring to opt for neutral, natural shades instead. One her favourites is said to be Essie’s Ballet Slipper, a barely there pink.
Use a muslin or cotton cloth
Kate’s go-to makeup artist Arabella Preston reported that Kate is a fan of a wash cloth, which are great for wiping away stuck-on dirt and makeup. A face cloth is far more gentle than a cleansing brush and wipes away every inch of dirt.
Try bee venom
Another beauty trend Kate is said to have tried is a bee venom facial, also loved by Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham, for a needle-less face lift. Research has proven that Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) is a potent combination of enzymes, peptides and amino acids that works on all levels of the skin to encourage naturally occurring cell regeneration, boost collagen formation, accelerate the recovery of damaged skin cells and act as a natural alternative to harsh antibiotic therapy for acne.
