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.
