You're not the only one swapping hair and nail tips with your gal pals over Sunday brunch. Even celebrity girlfriends share beauty secrets with each other. In this case, we're talking about Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria. In a recent interview with Allure magazine, Beckham confessed that she stopped shaving her legs and opted for laser hair removal, following Longoria's advice.
"[It] is amazing. You can go back for little touch-ups if you do see little hairs appearing. But I've been very lucky that I haven't had to. That was one of the best tips that Eva Longoria ever gave me," she said.
But, how does laser hair removal actually work? A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair and the light is absorbed by the pigment, which then damages the follicle enough to stunt its growth. But like Beckham suggested, it doesn't always completely remove hair. The FDA only refers to it as "laser hair reduction." Beckham's just one of the lucky ones!
In the same interview, Beckham shared other tips for staying young and beautiful at 39-years-old, including waking up at 6 AM to run four miles a day, rain or shine.
So, what we've learned is that it doesn't come easy being Victoria Beckham — it takes hard work and dedication to be as gorgeous and hair-free as the pop-star-turned-designer. Find solace in that during your next bikini wax appointment or gym sesh.
