Even celebrities find time to practice a little self-care at home. (Celebrities, they're just like us!) And Halle Berry is no exception. While you may be used to seeing her glammed up on the red carpet or working up a sweat while hitting the gym, Berry always finds time to prioritize her skin.

Last month, the actress posted a photo to Instagram while doing an at-home facial. The selfie shows the star in her bathroom mirror with her hair clipped back revealing the Olga Lorencin 3-step Red Carpet Facial in a box applied to her face. The caption read: “bare but never the minimum.”

Olga Lorencin's Instagram page reposted the star’s photo and shared that Berry had “been using the Red Carpet Facial to keep her skin looking young and fresh for over a decade.”

Berry was first introduced to the red carpet facial when she began seeing celebrity aesthetician Olga Lorencin at the Kinara Spa in Los Angeles. During one of her appointments, Berry mentioned wanting an on-the-go version of Lorencin's signature treatment and boom! The red carpet facial in a box was created, as reported by Allure.

Other celebs are as infatuated with the product as Berry. Viola Davis expressed how much she loved the red carpet facial kit and posted a picture on Twitter calling it “the best facial kit ever!!!.”

What makes this celeb-loved kit so special? Well, beyond working to give the skin an all-over radiant glow, the kit contains three products: the red carpet facial peel, facial neutralizer, and a facial polishing mask. And it comes with an applicator brush and treatment bowl, so you're sure to have everything you need.

The trio of products is formulated with a nourishing combination of exfoliants and botanical extracts. You’ll also find powerful ingredients like lactic and malic acids in the formula, which are alpha hydroxy acids commonly used to shed the surface of the skin.

Lactic acid works by gently exfoliating the outer layer of your skin, said S. Tyler Hollmig, M.D., director of dermatologic surgery at UT Dell Medical School and Ascension Seton in Austin, in a previous interview for Prevention.com. “Sloughing off the dull, dead cells makes way for a brighter, smoother complexion underneath.”

Research also shows that lactic acid can help firm the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. “Normal, healthy skin cells in the outer layer of the skin shed every two to three weeks. This may slow down due to aging, dehydration, and other environmental stressors, which can appear as rough, scaly, and dull-appearing skin,” said Dr. Hollmig.

The acid works by loosening up the bonds between dead skin cells, which helps to boost cell turnover, revealing a more refreshed complexion.

QVC reviewers also can’t stop raving about this kit, giving it a 4.2-star rating.

“I originally purchased the travel size version of this product to ensure all the positive reviews were just that,” wrote one customer. “I was extremely happy with the results and decided to splurge on the full size here at QVC. I have oily skin, large pores, and breakouts...BUT my skin has never looked better!

So there you have it—a celebrity-level glow is just a few clicks away. Head on over to QVC and treat yourself to the red carpet facial kit and while you’re at it, check out a few other of Berry’s must-have beauty products below.
