Former Friends star, and top cat on the new series Cougar Town, Courtney Cox is looking incredible lately!
So incredible that she’s on the August cover of InStyle Magazine.
At 46 years young, Courtney has nearly perfect skin with almost no visible lines or wrinkles. She obviously has a great skin care regime with the 5 Essential Components.
Keep reading to find out what they are…
1. A gentle cleanser
A powerful, but gentle, cleanser is key to keeping your pores from clogging. Clogged pores (even partially clogged) stay open and are more visible to the naked eye. The cleaner your pores are, the smoother your skin will look. We like Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser ($6.49, Target.com).
2. An alcohol-free toner
A toner finishes the job that most cleansers can’t do… it removes the last bits of dirt and grime that you never thought were there. For those of you who use a toner regularly, how often are you surprised at the amount of dirt your toner removes, even after you washed your face? We like Neutrogena’s Alcohol-free Toner ($7.99, Drugstore.com).
3. A 7-10% glycolic acid product
Glycolic acid products are the best alternative to prescription strength line fighters like Retin-A, but the key is in the numbers. For a glycolic acid product to be effective, the acid concentration must be at least 7-10%. It can be a job to find a product that meets these requirements, and if you don’t see the percentage on the label, just assume that it’s less than 7%. We like DDF 10% Glycolic Toner because it kills two birds with one stone. It’s a great toner, and has the appropriate concentration of glycolic acids to keep your skin glowing ($28, SkinElite.com)
4. An overnight rejuvenating moisterizer
Your skin repairs itself at night, so make sure you give it the moisture it needs to do its job. Your body is 66% water, so moisture is important at every level, including your skin! Go for Aveeno’s Positively Ageless Night Cream for a great product that won’t cost you an arm and a leg ($18.99, Drugstore.com).
5. Regular clinical facials
A clinical facial is a fantastic way to clean, refresh, and rejuvenate your entire skin surface. A good facial removes every last bit of dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells that accumulate regardless of how good your home skincare regime is. Having a clinical facial once a month gives you the best foundation for your home products to do their jobs.
