Celebrities also fall in the range of these extremes with their anti-aging treatments.

Anti-Aging Beauty Wands Are Everywhere — But Are They Worth It? 01 of 16 Gabrielle Union Getty Images When it comes to hair care, Gabrielle Union tells us she starts with a healthy scalp — so it's a good thing her haircare line Flawless helps with just that. The actress says she works on "improving my scalp health, moisture and nurturing my hair," she previously told InStyle. "Three times a week... I'm washing with our Hydrating Detangling Shampoo and our Hydrating Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner, and then the Detangling Leave-in Conditioner. Then once a week, I would do the Repairing Deep Conditioner Masque." 02 of 16 Jennifer Lopez Getty Images Everyone in the world is after the multi-hyphenate's skincare routine because, well, have you seen that J.Lo glow? This is why she founded her skincare brand: JLo Beauty. She previously told us that her secret is less is more. Well, that and olive oil. "My mom and aunts swear by olive oil to deliver a glow," she told us. "The hero ingredient in JLo Beauty is a modernized version of olive oil, called the Olive Complex. It's a combination of ingredients derived from extra-virgin olive oil, fermented oil, leaf extract, and squalane. It gives the skin this weightless, all-day hydration, antioxidant protection, and an ageless radiance. And it doesn't smell like salad dressing," she added with a laugh. The Best Skincare Routine for Women In Their 40s, According to Dermatologists 03 of 16 John Legend Getty Images The EGOT-winning musician steals a lot of his beauty secrets — and products — from his wife Chrissy Teigen. "We love SK-II — the moisturizer, the Pitera [Essence]," he previously told InStyle. "I think in general, that's probably a common story for couples, [especially hetero] couples; a lot of times the guy is getting tips from their girlfriend or their wife, and we're influenced heavily by their choices." 04 of 16 Lily Aldridge Getty Images The model told us that her secret to her flawless complexion is moisturizer and sheet masks. "Say I'm heading out for a date night: I start by moisturizing to prep my skin — sometimes I'll even throw on a face mask," she previously told InStyle, adding that the sheet masks aren't just for your face. "Toward the end of my third trimester with my son, when I was counting the seconds until giving birth, I'd put one sheet mask on my face and another on my bump and watch TV. My daughter thought it was so hilarious!" The 7 Best Sheet Masks of 2023, According to Our Testers 05 of 16 Kelly Ripa Getty Images You may be wondering how the heck the morning talk show host stays so youthful and energetic. Her secret? "I feel like dancing keeps your mind and body young," Ripa, whose workouts are mostly dance-based, previously told InStyle. "I have to remind myself that I'm not 23 because I still feel like I am," she adds. 06 of 16 Penelope Cruz Dominique Charriau/WireImage According to Cruz, the best beauty advice she ever got came from her mother. "[She always said] to eat healthy and get a solid amount of rest. I remember her sounding like a broken record telling us to eat our veggies and go to sleep," she previously told InStyle. "She annoyed me, but now, as a mother, I hear myself saying the same things." 07 of 16 Jennifer Aniston Dan MacMedan/WireImage The reason Aniston hasn't aged a day since her time as Rachel Green? A healthy mixture of microcurrent facials, which she dubs "a little workout for your face," and the Clear and Brilliant Laser treatments. "It's a great refresher, and there's very little downtime," she told InStyle. "It won't make you look like a peeled tomato." Additionally, she uses a light hand when applying makeup, and swears by Aveeno's SPF 60. Experts Call These the Most Cutting-Edge Aesthetic Treatments 08 of 16 Halle Berry Mike Windle/Getty For Halle Berry, the dewier her complexion, the better. "No matter what age you are, you always look a little better when your skin is a little dewy, not too powdery. I went through phases where all I wanted to do was be matte and powdered up, but then I found it wasn't the best look for me," she told InStyle. "Before I do my makeup, I spray my face with rosewater and let that sink in. It keeps my makeup looking very dewy, and I feel like it just makes me look more youthful, alive, and fresh." 09 of 16 Salma Hayek Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Hayek's formula for perfect skin involves never going to bed with a full face on. "I've never gone to bed without washing my face. Never in my life," she told InStyle. "Even if I'm sick, tired — heck, even if I was drunk! I might forget to take off the dress, the shoes, and the jewelry, but not the makeup. It's second nature." 10 of 16 Sarah Jessica Parker Mark Sagliocco/Getty Parker, too, is an advocate for always going to bed with clean skin. "The thing I'm most diligent about is washing my face," she told InStyle. "I say to my husband, 'Oh, I'm so tired, Matthew! I don't want to wash my face.' He's like, 'Why do you need to?' He doesn't get it. I also always wear moisturizer and lip balm." 11 of 16 Chrissy Teigen Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic Teigen loves Shani Darden's Retinol Reform Resurface serum. "My aesthetician makes this product," Teigen told InStyle. "It smooths out fine lines. Every time I use it, I get compliments on my skin the next morning." 12 of 16 Julianne Moore Samir Hussein/WireImage Julianne Moore likes to layer a face oil or serum, such as L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Midnight Serum Anti-Aging Complex, with the Age Perfect Cell Renewal Day Cream SPF 25 to keep her skin protected and hydrated. "I layer them for extra moisture," she told InStyle. "It soaks right in and never feels greasy."

"My regimen is the Pre-Cleanse Oil, followed by the Hydrating Renew Cleanser," she tells InStyle. "I use the Vitamin C Booster a couple times a week, and I love the Nutrient Mist, but the Pure Radiance Oil was my gateway into the line. I slather it all over morning and night." 14 of 16 January Jones Araya Diaz/Getty For Jones, a little bit of Tracie Martyn's Shakti Face and Body Resculpting Cream goes a long way. "It's for face, neck, legs, arms, and anywhere that needs firming," she told InStyle. (This product is frequently sold out, but who says you can't use their Face Resculpting Cream on your body?) According to Shoppers, This "Divine" Moisturizer Firms Skin and Fades Sun Damage 15 of 16 Jessica Alba Pascal Le Segretain/Getty "My mother taught me to always wear sunscreen, and to treat my beauty products as an investment," she told InStyle. "She would cheap out on her clothes before she would ever skimp on her skincare or makeup. She'd say, 'Listen, this is your face. It's all you've got.'" 16 of 16 Linda Evangelista Michael Loccisano/Getty The supermodel is a fan of the Erasa EXP-30 serum. "I've tried everything, from drugstore to high-end, but I really started to notice a difference after using this," she told InStyle. "My pores got smaller, and my skin tone evened out."
