Jennifer Aniston’s R10 anti-wrinkle solution

Friday, 15 June 2012

Jennifer Aniston's R10 anti-wrinkle solutionJennifer Aniston doesn’t just rely on expensive creams and overpriced serums to maintain her youthful skin. The wealthy 43-year-old actress keeps wrinkles at bay using a tried-and-tested technique that costs just R9.49.

Every night, she religiously smooths trusted beauty stand-by Vaseline below each eye.

The former Friends star starts each morning with another simple – and free – technique for glowing skin. She fills her sink with water and ice cubes and dips her face in it to shrink the pores and reduce puffiness around her eyes.

‘Jen doesn’t like the thought of surgery because she doesn’t want to look stretched, so she has a 30-minute nightly beauty ritual,’ an insider told Now magazine. ‘Jen’s very disciplined when it comes to staying young.’

The LA-based actress, who is dating Justin Theroux, begins her DIY facial by steaming her pores for 10 minutes. She then applies a gentle cleanser and toner, followed by Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion. Next she gives herself a 10-minute facial massage to stimulate skin cells and help tighten her muscles, finishing with Dr LeWinn’s Ultra R4 Restorative Cream.

Dedicated Jennifer then applies a vitamin A treatment from Anna Lotan called Rénova, which she leaves on for another 10 minutes, in which time she smooths vitamin E capsules on to her shins and elbows. The final touch is the quarter of a teaspoon of Vaseline under each eye.

It may seem like an effort, but if the key to flawless skin is elbow grease rather than pricey products, perhaps we should all start trying the Aniston regime.

    I also use the Vaseline under the eyes each night, but this regime requires dedication. Might give it a try till it’s habit right.

    She looks gorgeous for her age. I think this could really be worth a try. But also she does yoga (as far as I am aware) and probably eats very healthy (I think it is always a complex of all the things that person does, not only skin routine).

    Vaseline is a wonder product. Always carry a little tub with me. Can also be used for last minute make-up if you’ve forgotten your make-up bag. Works as a lipgloss, eyebrow tamer, highlighter (for cheeks) and even on eye lids. And still the best lip balm.

    I’m using Vaseline for anything from scars, pimples to dabbing a little on my eyelashes and ladies, it works. I used vaseline Blue Seal (vit E) for the scars on my hands after a hand operation and not can you hardly see the scars where the cuts were it is soft too. Works great on healing pimples. and if you want long luscious lashes try wiping a little bit on your lashes.

    Going to get a pot of Vaseline asap! I’ve been trying out samples of eye creams, and eventually found one (which is very pricey) that I was considering to purchase. So glad I read this article! Going to try the Vaseline tip first and see what results I get. It’s a whole lot cheaper than that expensive eye cream!
