It’s a sad fact that we very rarely see an untouched image of celebrities these days, no matter how flawless they actually are in real life. This unrealistic standard is so hard for ‘normal’ women to live up to, especially when we don’t even know what’s real and what’s not. Today, we take a look at five “before and after” shots of some of the most famous, and beautiful, women on the planet and makes some slightly more realistic suggestions of how to take care of your skin without the need for Photoshop.

Madonna

Given the fact that Madonna is 58 years old and is a life0long smoker, we think she looks pretty amazing in the first picture, but whoever retouched the second image obviously believes that her skin has too many wrinkles. She could probably benefit from using Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex which helps with wrinkles, crows feet, puffiness, dark circles due to hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity due to dehydration. It is suitable for drier/prematurely-aging.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford may now be 50 but she’s credited with being one of the world’s first supermodels and, in our opinion, still looks incredible. Obviously, it’s inevitable that skin will change texture, and the skin of a fifty year old will rarely be as smooth and taut as that of a 20 year old, but using Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream daily can help to firm and re-texturise the skin, giving a more youthful appearance.

Kim Cattrall

Kim Cattrall is best-known for playing Samantha Jones in Sex and the City and is ageing better than most of us could ever hope to, which is why it baffles us that they chose to retouch her photo in the first place. We’re guessing that she already uses a good anti-wrinkle kit because her skin is so radiant and youthful, and we’d recommend Decleor Anti-Wrinkle Starter Kit if you want similar results.

Britney Spears

Proving that even younger women aren’t immune to the compulsive need to retouch images, 35-year-old Britney Spears has been given the treatment here, where they appear to have darkened her skin and sculpted her bottom. For results that don’t require a PC, try using Decleor Gradual Glow Hydrating Body Milk to give yourself a natural colour, plus Decleor Sculpt Stretch Mark Restructuring Gel-Cream for a smoother rear-end.

Penelope Cruz

We’re not quite sure why magazine editors feel the need to make celebrities appear as though their skin has the same texture as glass, but Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz was obviously considered far too human in the before shot, despite being basically flawless. If you’re worried about the texture of your skin, you can always use Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant to help you to appear slightly smoother.
