Gilmore Girls Star Reveals 5 Secrets To Her Ageless Skin

Gilmore Girls star reveals beauty secrets

The cheating scandal isn’t the only reason we’re riveted to the new four-part Gilmore Girls reboot out now on Netflix.

No, we’re equally transfixed by the way star Alexis Bledel, who plays the philandering Rory Gilmore, hasn’t aged a bit.

The now 35-year-old stunner looks as young as when we first met her in the town of Stars Hallow a decade ago.

So what’s the secret to her ageless skin in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life? Celeb aesthetician Brigitte Beasse, that’s what.

The Beverly Hills-based skin expert has been taking care of the star’s visage for nearly 10 years, she tells E! News.

Brigitte says she swears by regular facial treatments that address skin concerns and the use of a strict daily regime.

“By incorporating anti-ageing ingredients such as Retinol, vitamin C, a new generation of peptides and by using appropriate equipment as technology advances, such as the Environ DF Machine or red light therapy, our skin can adapt well with age,” she says.

Every skin type is different, but if yours is similar to Alexis, here’s Brigitte’s five step facial for turning back the clock (which must be done by a licensed professional).

1. Cleanse

With the steam machine on, first pre-cleanse the face and décolletage will mineral oil, then exfoliate with a clay mask (which also helps with mini lymphatic drainage). Use a Clarisonic Face Bush with cleansing gel to clean the skin. Apply Environ Alpha Toner Forte, then Alpha Gel (which has a high concentration of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and used as a secondary exfoliant) and then cleansing gel again.

2. Extraction

After a deep pore cleansing, in which blackheads are extracted, apply toner again. Next, treat the skin with a high-frequency current, says Brigitte.

3. Sonophoresis treatment

It may look like a cooking tool, but a cosmetic roller gently uses tiny micro-needles across your face to stimulate skin—it doesn’t hurt at all; in fact, it can speed up the reduction of uneven skin tone. Next, a professional-grade LAC-Pamgel, or serum with Lactic Acid, is applied over the face and décolleté. This is followed by with a serum featuring vitamin C. Finally, both an ultrasound and micro-current are used across the skin so that deeper levels of the skin can better absorb the products.

4. Iontophoresis

Apply an alginate mask. It feels like a rubber-like consistency that envelops your entire face—mouth, eyes and nose included. It’s meant to help reduce fine lines, tighten skin and increase elasticity.

5. Hydration & production

Moisturise skin with a cream containing a low concentration of vitamin A, as well as vitamins C and E and other antioxidants, like Environ AVST Moisturizer 1. Finally, use at-home NuFace device to help tighten and tone the face, adds Brigitte.
