Bella Hadid's and Irina Shayk's Facialists Love These 22 Skin-Plumping Gems
As someone whose career involves chatting up the most talented and sought-after skin gurus in the business, there are a few cardinal "good skin" rules that have been permanently ingrained into my head. Of course, there are the obvious dictations like always removing your makeup before bed, drinking as much water as your bladder can possibly handle, resisting the urge to pop your own pimples, etc,. But one interesting tidbit I've learned—that's not necessarily public knowledge—is that skin-plumping products (aka essentials that hydrate, nourish, strengthen, and boost collagen) are one of the most strategic ways to harness plump, dewy, all-around youthful-looking skin at any age. (My 73-year-old mom is pure proof on the matter!)
Of course, there are plenty of cosmetic treatments and procedures (like filler) that can plump up your complexion. But if you're looking for a less invasive, expert-approved product list that can provide immediate skin-plumping perks, you're in luck.
Since certain types of beauty products are far more effective at promoting a dewy, bouncy-looking finish than others, I reached out to two celebrity skin experts, Kristyn Smith, who works with Bella Hadid, and Nicole Caroline, who works with Irina Shayk, for some intel. Below, both Smith and Caroline are revealing the exact skin-plumping products they use and recommend to their A-list clients. From tools to oils to serums to creams, keep scrolling for 22 product gems that offer instant tightening and plumping gratification.
"For slightly younger skin, I prefer a gentler approach and will often put my 18- to 25-year-old clients on Li Organics (although it is great for any age). This face oil is a rich and concentrated serum that imparts nourishing botanical compounds that heal, redefine, and balance the skin at the cellular level. With regular use, the amazing cocktail of ingredients will make the skin appear smoother, plumper, and more uniform. Apply one to two pumps of this nourishing oil as a daily moisturizer and night treatment on clean and slightly damp skin for maximum absorption. A little goes a long way!"—Smith
