This is the second post in a series where I gush over the effortless glow of a summer muse. Last time, we analyzed the root cause of Gabrielle Union’s summer glow. Today, we’ll rehash what we know of Kelly Rowland’s beauty rituals.
On the surface, Kelly looks like she’s a low maintenance type of gal. But she’s far from that. Although she keeps her look pretty natural, there’s a lot of work that goes into her effortless results. I mean, just look at her. She looks like a beautiful young lady enjoying a day at the beach. She doesn’t look like a woman nearing 40 years old. Her body is perfect, her skin is perfect, her hair is perfect. Everything worked together to create this amazing moment.
One of Kelly’s best features is her skin. We can all attribute her healthy glow to genetics but, in actuality, she puts a lot of attention and invests heavily in her skin. Kelly has been known to brag about her love for Nutra Bisse products. Specifically their peel off mask. If memory serves me, Kelly is the one who introduced Beyonce to the brand. Like every other celebrity with flawless skin, exfoliation is a staple in Kelly’ regimen. Right now, she’s loving Dr. Denis Gross’ peel pads. Apparently, they helped clear an unexpected breakout overnight and she’s been loyal ever since. We’ve already discussed how the key to flawless summer skin involves adding exfoliating acids to your regimen. If you’re serious about glowing skin, don’t skip out on exfoliating acids.
Kelly’s wearing cut off denim shorts and a simple crop top. I honestly thought the crop top trend would be over by now but it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Kelly proudly displays her midsection because she’s worked hard for her results. If you recall, Kelly has been known to knock out a couple of hundred sit-ups a night to maintain a toned core. She’s also faithfully worked out with her favorite trainer, Jeanette Jenkins. I remember when Destiny’s Child first came on the scene. You could tell that Kelly always had a small frame. It’s easy to think that a body like hers comes naturally, but not so. The toned legs and midsection come from focused exercise. Stop thinking that you can live a completely sedentary life and enjoy a toned-fit body. It doesn’t work that way. The reason why Kelly puts in the work is because she “loves the way her clothes fit.” I’m sure we all want that. Kelly also loves munching on healthy greens like kale and spinach. Not only does eating clean contribute to keeping her frame slim, it helps keep her skin pretty as well.
Another attribute I love about Kelly is that she enjoys the art of self-care. She loves treating herself to various beauty routines & rituals. I think her entire lifestyle is centered around pouring into herself and feeling good. She eats a lot of greens because of how they make her feel. She works out first thing in the morning to create energy to last throughout the day. She invests in herself so that she can be the best version of herself for her family. It’ a wonderful philosophy to have and it’s served her very well.
