Lily Tomlin’s secret to smoother skin.
Vitamin-A Scrub Smooths Skin
How did the 9 to 5 star’s skin go from rough and wrinkly in 2015 to soft and smooth today? New York City dermatologist Margarita Lolis suspects a good scrub. “Cell turnover slows with age, leading to a buildup of dead cells that cause skin to take on a rougher texture. This also enhances the appearance of fine lines,” she says. Exfoliating sloughs off dead cells for a smoother appearance. And for best results, reach for one infused with vitamin A, which helps boost cell renewal to thwart future buildup. To do: Massage a nickel-sized amount of a scrub (like derma e Anti-Wrinkle Scrub, $14, dermae.com) onto damp skin in circular motions; rinse.
Repeat three times a week for results in two weeks.
This Trick Wakes Up Eyes
The former Access Hollywood host looks more vibrant and radiant at age 54 than she did at 52, thanks to a little undereye brightening, says makeup artist Geoffrey Rodriguez, who has worked with Marcia Gay Harden and Mary Steenburgen. His secret to achieving a similar age-erasing effect: Pick a concealer that’s one shade lighter than your skin tone (we like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 25, $12, walmart.com) and apply in an inverted triangle, with the lowest point hitting the top of the cheek. Then fill in the triangle and blend. This technique disguises darkness, plus creates a brightening effect for instantly wide-awake eyes.
Lowlights Add Va-Va-Volume
An overprocessed blond left the King Kong star’s hair looking thin and strawlike last year, which added years to her look, says colorist Debi Dumas, who’s worked with Sharon Stone and Paula Abdul. For full, lustrous locks like Naomi has now, Dumas suggests adding in lowlights. Look for a formula infused with sunflower- and meadowfoam-seed oils in a color that’s two shades darker than your current hue. (We like Garnier Olia Brilliant Color in #7.0-Dark Blonde, $8, target.com.) Paint 1-inch sections of hair throughout and let sit 20 minutes; rinse. The darker dye creates the illusion of depth while the oils hydrate for healthy shine.
