Former first lady of France, Carla Bruni, makes sure to be careful when it comes to keeping a good appearance. The 50-year-old admits that she doesn’t wear much makeup and avoids peach tones and her ”getting ready” routine takes only 30 minutes.
In addition to her songs, the singer-songwriter and model has made a name for herself with her stunning good looks as well, so it might be worth listening when she shares her tips for a youthful glow. Carla, who released her sixth album named French Touch in October last year, spoke to Into the Gloss about her skin care secrets.
“I’ll do a little detox mask, and after will follow it with a clay one. Maybe a little steam bath,” she said.
“I have sensitive skin, so what I like is facial massage. It gives you a real glow, gets rid of puffiness, dryness, and it brings oxygen to your skin. My personal massage therapist lives in Paris.”

To avoid a shiny T-zone, the musician, who also has a son named Aurelien from a previous relationship, applies blotting powder or a very good moisturizer.
Before performing, Bruni doesn’t even bother with a glam squad, making sure to prep herself on her own.
The glam process, which includes styling her hair by smoothing the ends with a straightening iron takes 30 minutes. Bruni’s perfect way to end the evening is a hot bath and a beer. To relax she uses essential oils like lavender and arnica.
