Yes, celebrities may work out with thier personal trainers and have professional hair and makeup artists on hand, but we can still learn a few real-life beauty tricks from them about ways to get clear skin this summer. Let’s take a look at a few stunning Latina starlets and take note...
1. Celebrity Clear Skin: Alexis Bledel
This ex-Gilmore Girl is an example of perhaps the most important lesson of all: the first rule of summer skin care is sunscreen. See how fair her skin is? You can bet she knows the golden rule of SPF. Yes, a sun tan may look amazing in the short term; but in the long term those UV rays will do more damage than you can ever dream. We’re talking DNA damage, collagen damage, wrinkles and dark spots—you get it. So wear a sunscreen with at least SPF 15 every day.

2. Celebrity Clear Skin: Thalia
Some women may appear to drink out of the fountain of youth, but chances are these women just have a really good moisturizer. It’s beyond important to keep skin hydrated, even in the summer, so use a moisturizer in the morning and at night. Ideally you want to begin this ritual when you’re in your teen years or early twenties, this way you’ll be on your way to gorgeous crease-free skin. During the day, try a lightweight gel, like Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief ($34, clinique.com).
3. Celebrity Clear Skin: Eva Longoria Parker

Forget diamonds; concealer is a girl’s best friend, especially when discoloration or uneven skin tone is an issue. To get skin like Eva's, apply the concealer over your sunscreen and moisturizer, just before your lightweight foundation, which is perfect for this season. Make sure it’s about a half-shade lighter than your overall complexion and use fingers to blend. Wear it under eyes, around the nose and any areas of the face where you might experience redness. Try CoverGirl & Olay Corrector Simply Ageless Makeup ($12, drugstore.com).
4. Clinique 300x250 Slide
5. Celebrity Clear Skin: Jennifer Lopez
A healthy dose of bronzer brings life to any complexion in any season, just ask La Lopez. Apply it under apples of cheeks, around the hair line and over the brides of the nose. Make sure to use a multi-hued powder as opposed to a solid color. Mixes of lighter and darker bronze powders produce a more realistic shade.
