She’s an extremely successful actress and her facialist has an interesting spice that she’s added to Julianne Moore’s skin routine…paprika! keep reading to find out why she’s added this to her routine and why you should add it to yours as well.
Julianne Moore Uses Paprika?!?!
We know that Julianne Moore is addicted to Twitter, but is it possible that she’s also addicted to a spice that’s often left untouched on the spice rack. No, I’m not saying that she’s addicted to paprika, LOL. But it turns out that she’s probably a user of the spice and for good reasons so it seems. According to the celebs facialist, Joanna Vargas, paprika, “Helps flush out impurities from the tissue and increase circulation,” and “It also helps even out pigment and strengthen the elasticity while protecting against photo aging.” While you may not have known that this spice was so powerful, the important thing is that you’re aware now!
According to an article posted in Allure, paprika is loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals. Those same vitamins and minerals are what give many of the Lousiana creole-based dishes that spicy kick. Those same vitamins and minerals in the paprika are very beneficial for your skin, working as antibacterials as well as anti-inflammatories.
