How To Get Kerry Washington's Flawless Skin Not only am I obsessed with the gorgeous Kerry Washington's powerful portrayal of D.C.'s political fixer Olivia Pope on ABC's Scandal, I am also super obsessed with the actress' flawless, even toned skin. Kerry is one of those celebrities who maintains naturally flawless and glowing skin. She is someone who is very determined when it comes to caring for her body and her skin and she does so from the inside out. So after scoping out some of the star's regimens and treatments, I found skin care tips from Kerry's own mouth as well as her aesthetician/beautician and facialist that help achieve a flawless complexion, particularly for dark skin tones: 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Kerry's Skin Care Regimen:
  • Kerry uses a mild, non-drying cleanser like Cetaphil or Neutrogena Ultra Gentle daily cleanser
  • She follows up with Dr. Hauschka's Clarifying Toner to remove excess oil.
  • Kerry also applies a re-texturizing fruit enzyme peel by Yonka Gommage 305 to her face once a week
  • She follows with a non-greasy hyaluronic acid-based gel serum, by Epicuren to treat her dry patches
  • For her dark spots she uses Dermalogica SPF 30 sunscreen, which contains reflecting particles
  • This is followed by Yonka 305 eye cream to fix puffiness and dark circles
 
Kerry's Diet tips:
  • Kerry drinks LOTS and LOTS of water to stay hydrated and detoxify her skin
  • Kerry is big on vegan protein shakes (with coconut water instead of regular water, for taste)
  • She also enjoys nutritionist, Kim Snyder's, Glowing Green Smoothies http://kimberlysnyder.net/blog/ggs/
  • Kerry takes fish oil in which she claimed,  "That's really helped in terms of my skin. I had eczema as a kid and sometimes if I get really stressed out or if I'm not watching what I'm eating it can flare up...the fish oil helps me to have enough healthy fatty acids."
  • Kerry eats a lot of local organic foods when at home and filming on location
  • She is also a fan of Borba skin supplements and drink mixes to clear her acne and give her glowing skin http://www.borba.com/
 
Kerry's Aesthetic Skin Care Treatments
  • Since women with darker skin tones are more prone to dark spots and hyperpigmentation, Kerry uses ultrasound treatments to clear up her discoloration. As her aesthetician Kate Somerville claims, "They detoxify and are good for acne."  She also states, "When used in combination with lightening agents, ultrasound can improve and brighten pigmentation.
