How Courteney Stays Sexy

Volume gives a natural look.

To create Courteney Cox’s modern yet attainable look, stylist Brant Mayfield blows out her hair with a boar-bristle round brush and a bit of Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray or  Schwarzkopf Osis Air Pomade, which he says gives lift at the root without any stickiness. “Then, I wrap her hair around a clampless Enzo Milano 1-inch curling iron for piecey waves that translate into a natural surfer-girl look.”Peptides achieve a glowing complexion.

Courteney’s long-time aesthetician, Nerida Joy, cares for her thin, combination skin with products and treatments that infuse hydration and give flexibility. “Her skin requires massage and extractions, which help keep her pores clean and small,” says Joy. Peptides and mild retinols, both in professional treatments and at-home products, are essential, Joy says, for maintaining Courteney’s youthful and pretty skin.

Focused moves.

Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson works out with Courteney about four times a week, concentrating on the butt and legs. “She has long, lean legs, so we do a lot of moves to keep the butt toned and the legs even longer,” says Anderson. Courteney also follows Anderson’s total body workout, the Tracy Anderson Method, to work and connect the entire body by exhausting the accessory muscles and moving the body in new and interesting ways. When it comes to diet, Anderson says that Courteney has done her Nutrition Boost and Menu Guide.

“Courteney loves Cle De Peau cream compact foundation because it doesn’t cake and it layers well – I can layer cream and powder blush on top of it” – Elisa Marsh, Courteney’s Makeup Artist.
