DO IT LIKE NOLLYWOOD: Get skin like Rita, body like Ini Edo and legs like Kate

Rita-DominicRita Dominic: Rita Dominic’s heavenly skin is even more famous than her luscious lips, get-lost eyes and sweet voice and acting ability. Once asked the secret, she replies:”Bright skin?. I’ve always been called silky skin and you even used to call me that. I thank my parents for my skin. I’ve been using the same cream for years now. Four years ago, I added a few things to my beauty regimen.

What Rita knows:

Exercise

According to dermatologists, we tend to focus on the cardiovascular benefits of physical activity, and those are important. But anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant.

Going to the spa more frequently to detox, steam, get body scrubs and massages.

Links between massage and skin beauty has been controversial, at best; but at least it has worked for Rita, alongside body scrubs and other popular spa routines we are always to busy to get.

Drink about 13 glasses of water a day

Everyone has testified to this one. Water is skin’s best friend, dryness its worst enemy.

Stay away from the sun.

With all the location shoots and red carpets, can Rita really stay out of the sun? Well, she says she does by all means and you’d better believe her. Her skin says it’s true

Kate Henshaw Nuttal:

She has not been able to live down the girl-next-door mien. Yet, Kate Henshaw Nuttal is now best known as the sexiest member of the 40s club in Nollywood thanks to her eternally youthful long, lithe body. Lately, she appears to have just realized the value of her legs and is using them to advantage.

What Kate knows:

Use the stairs

Ever seen Kate in her elements? She’s flying all over the place like a teenager. Call it joie de vive, whatever. Run up the stairs if you  must.

Use lotion, not creams If possible, find lotions specifically for legs but whatever the case, use lotions, not creams, on the legs. Slather one layer, wait for five minutes, then slather another.

Never, ever shave If you look closely- really, really closely- you will find hairs on Kate’s legs too. They never get noticeable because she never shaves them.

*Ini Edo

Ini Edo:

Ini is really hot and her curves and the proportional body are obviously God’s precious gift. She has given a dozen interviews yet Ini aint spilling about the secret of her body.

What Ini knows:

Mix Aerobics with weights

Personal trainers however attribute it to loads and loads of time at the gym doing a little aerobics as well as plenty of weights training. Caution: do not try this at home, weights training only works with expert supervision

Plenty of Water

Ini’s tight body is rippling with muscles, though you can’t see them under her glorious skin. Most people don’t know that training with weights is useless without loads and loads of water. Muscles cannot grow without it.

Diet rich in protein, calcium and iron

Train from now till Timbuktoo, but without proper nourishment, it is impossible to get Ini’s level of tone without a diet rich in fish, chicken, seafood and molluscs. The carbs just have to go.
