Nicole Kidman is without doubt one of the most ageless women in Hollywood - you can't deny she's looked fabulous at every stage of her career! And it turns out, her dewy, youthful skin is actually down to a high-street product that's available at boots. Speaking to Allure, Nicole confessed that she relies on Eucerin's Aquaphor soothing balm, to keep her skin looking nourished and hydrated. Of the cult product, she said, "'I also love Aquaphor. It costs nothing and it's amazing for dry skin, which I have. I put it on my face and it's very, very good." And at only £9, we're sold! You can buy it here
Jerry Hall's iconic head of hair has graced the cover of every major magazine since the late 1970's. Fast forward 30 years and four children later and the 58-year-old Texan beauty still looks every inch a supermodel. Her once waist-length locks might now sit just below her shoulders but their immaculate mirror shine and thick voluminous texture is still very much intact.
Her secret? Olive Oil - slathered on by the handful. The former actress cites this £2 beauty remedy - passed down by her glamourous mother - as solely responsibly for her healthy head of hair and supple, youthful looking skin.
Try it at home by warming a bottle of Boots Olive Oil in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes, before massaging a teaspoon amount into the ends and scalp. Leave it on for between 10 and 20 minutes, before gently shampooing it out. The nutrient-rich properties quickly seep into the hair shaft repairing the moisture bonds for strengthened sleek locks in an instant.
It works equally well on dry patches, especially stubborn cracked heels. Simply douse your feet in a generous helping before slipping them into Sanctuary Moisture Locking Socks, £5 . Keep them overnight if you want and wake up to baby soft feet just in time for this season's strappy sandals.
Can you believe Christy Turlington is 45? If you are now lusting after her wrinkle-free skin, glowing complexion and luscious hair, we can reveal her readily available beauty secrets to you for the first time. Christy is probably best known as the face and body of Calvin Klein, from 1987 to 2007, and she credits her fabulous physique to yoga (read our yoga guide to find out which classes would suit you), but her youthful look is down to Imdeem supplements, a brand Christy is now spokesperson for.
Imedeen supplements are individually designed for different ages and skincare needs, whether you are in your 30s and noticing the first signs of ageing, or in your 50s and looking to restore youthful beauty to your skin. Expensive moisturisers and serums will only do so much, but a skincare supplement like Imedeen will repair and protect your skin from within, giving deep nourishment where it matters most.
And if you need further proof of the power of Christy's beauty routine, the American model returned to Calvin Klein last summer, showcasing her amazing looks in their underwear campaign. Check out the campaign video to be further inspired by one of the original and best supermodels.
When you're as famous as Kylie Minogue, luxury skincare and makeup brands are always gifting products. Kylie knows what works for her skin though - Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser, £4.49 which comes highly-recommended by her mum.
A youthful glow doesn't have to mean going under the knife or splashing out hundreds of pounds on expensive lotions and potions. The always gorgeous Joanna Lumley swears by Astral Moisturiser, £3.70 - and has done for years as she revealed in a recent w&h interview.
Gwen rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to fashion - mixing up pieces from her own label, L.A.M.B with other designers. Beauty-wise, she favours less pricey brands like our very own Barry M. We hear she can't get enough of their matte nail polishes (from £2.99)...
The Duchess of Cambridge always looks radiant. That might be down to regular bee-venom facials, or the £5 moisturiser she was spotted buying recently - Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Day Cream.
How does a Bond girl get 007's heart racing? With a little help from a very British brand of course! Naomie loves Champney's, especially their Mediterranean Bliss Bubble Heaven, £12 bubble bath which 'smells absolutely divine'.
Kohl liner is Fearne Cotton's trademark, so we imagine she's tried quite a few eye makeup removers. Simple's Kind to Eyes, £3.39 is her favourite by far.
The breathtaking gown may have been Givenchy for the premiere of Les Miserables, but Anne's nail polish? Only a bespoke manicure using £4 Mavala!
A little tin of Vaseline Lip Therapy, £1.79 is such a lifesaver during cold weather, even Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are fans.
Hands up who wants lashes like the beautiful Helena Christensen? Then you need her favourite mascara - Maybelline's Great Lash, £4.99.
She's the face of Rimmel so it's perhaps no surprise that her makeup bag is packed with their products. The one item that she can't live without though is Soft Kohl Eye Pencil- just £2.99!
