Healthy skin is so important that Kerr decided to start a skin care company. She founded skin care line Kora Organics in 2006. The company is certified organic by Ecocert Cosmos. “I really feel like with our skin being the largest organ, we need to be educated about what we’re putting on our skin,” she tells Glamour.

When it comes to facial cleanser, she likes to use Kora Organic’s Milky Mushroom Gentle Cleansing Oil, reports the publication. Other products she likes to use from her line include the turmeric scrub, Kora vitamin C, and turmeric glow moisturizer.

In addition to the above treatments, Kerr also does the diamond peel facial. Dr. Mariana Vergara, a cosmetic dermatologist, recently completed this treatment on Kerr. The model posted a photo on her Instagram page under the “self-care” tab.

Vergara told Showbiz Cheat Sheet how the diamond facial peel works. (Always remember to check with your dermatologist first before trying something new, especially if you have sensitive skin.)

“This treatment consists of a wet microdermabrasion,” says Vergara. “I suggest doing this treatment at least once a month. This treatment exfoliates and gently removes the first layer of the skin while delivering special serums into the skin, depending on the needs.”

Now that you know the secret to Kerr’s flawless skin, how exactly does the treatment work? What does the diamond peel facial do for your skin? Vergara gave us this information:

  • Dead skin cells are exfoliated. “Dead skin cells are more susceptible to internal aging,” says Vergara. “By exfoliating and removing the top layer of the skin, your skin-renewal process will increase.”
  • The exfoliation level can be modified depending on your skin type. “There are other microdermabrasion machines that can be harsh and aggressive to your skin, breaking the capillaries and causing inflammation and pigmentation worsen,” says Vergara.

“The beauty of the diamond peel is that we can modify the level of exfoliation depending on the skin thickness, type, and condition. We have multiple serums that can be used for this treatment, and they are customized for each patient.”

  • It’s used to treat various skin ailments. Vergara says the diamond peel facial is used to treat skin ailments such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, mild acne scars, blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores. “There is no downtime with this treatment, your skin can be a little sensitive to the sun, so sunblock is always recommended,” says Vergara.
  • Regular skin care is still important. Although facials can help you obtain that celebrity glow, you have to do the work in between. Vergara recommends developing a regular skin care routine. “To be able to have good skin there are no short cuts,” says Vergara. “Maintenance and consistency is the key!”
