It's been a decade since we last saw Alexis Bledel in the role of Rory Gilmore. Now, thanks to the Gilmore Girls revival that dropped on Netflix today, we're finally reunited with our favorite bookworm. We won't give away any plot details, but here's one shocker: Alexis Bledel looks almost exactly the same today as she did ten years ago.
How is this possible? The 35-year-old star can apparently credit her aesthetician Brigitte Beasse for her ageless skin. Beasse is a celebrity aesthetician who is based in Beverly Hills. Bledel has been a client of hers for almost ten years, and her results prove how important it is to find (and stick with!) a professional who can give you regular facials.

There's one facial in particular that Beasse does for Bledel, and she outlined the entire process for E! Online. This facial (which should only be done by a licensed professional) involves five main steps, with several procedures involved in each step.
The first step, which involves cleansing the skin, is extremely involved. First Beasse cleanses Bledel's skin with mineral oil, exfoliates with a clay mask, and then uses a Clarisonic brush with a cleansing gel (all this while a steam machine is on). The cleansing step is finished with an application of toner, a gel with AHAs for exfoliation, and then even more cleansing gel.
The second step involves a blackhead extraction, more toner, and finally a high-frequency current treatment. The third step is a sonophoresis treatment, plus application of a vitamin C serum and a lactic acid serum. The fourth step is application of an alginate mask to tighten the skin. Finally, the fifth step involves moisturizing with vitamin A, vitamins C and E, and other antioxidants. Bledel also continues her treatment by using a NuFace toning device at home.
It sounds like a lot of steps, but it's probably quite relaxing to sit back and have a professional do it all for you. Plus, there's no arguing with Bledel's results.
