Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian Share Their Beauty Secrets
Clark Samuels/Startraks

Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian may have access to some of the best hair and makeup artists in the world, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a few beauty tricks of their own. The reality stars spoke to PEOPLE in N.Y.C. on Friday about some of the take-home tips they’ve learned throughout the years — and it turns out they aren’t all that fancy. “Once a week I take Vaseline and I put it on my knees my elbows and my feet and I sleep in it because sometimes I just hate being dry,” Khloe shared at the John Frieda “Destination: Style” salon, a mobile salon making its way across the country to offer women free hair consultations and styling tips. “I put socks on over my feet and I swear it’s like the cheapest thing you can buy and you’re so moisturized.” For big sis Kourtney, it’s all about the moisturizer, too. “I started putting Aquaphor all over my face,” she revealed. “It’s so healing, especially if you’re in the sun — I mix it with serum and I just put it all over my face.” But their oldest beauty secret — one they learned in childhood — is a classic trick they picked up from mom Kris Jenner. “She always tells us to use a hot washcloth and scrub up your face. She tells us that like every day,” said Kourtney. “She says to get a scalding hot washcloth and put it on your face and it’ll steam your pores and scrub it and everything will come out,” added Khloe. “I’ll do it once in a while but she lives by this and embeds it into our brains. We’re like, ‘We get it, we get it!'” When it comes to hair, though, the girls aren’t quite as confident. That’s where the Destination: Style salon comes in. “I love it because I get my hair done all the time, but if I’m not getting it done, I really don’t know what to do on my own,” Khloe said. “I’ve never really sat down and asked questions. So I love that you get 15 minutes with a John Frieda stylist. You tell them your concerns and your problem areas, and they give you solutions on how to fix it.” Tell us: What are your best beauty secrets? –Kim Peiffer

I don’t have any best beauty secrets since I’m a Guy, but that’s nice to hear, thanks for sharing Girls!

Rose Salve from Bath & Body Works is an awesome multipurpose salve. It’s $5.50 & a little bit goes a long way. I use it on all my dry spots & on my lips before bed.

Also, Udder cream!! It’s the best skin moisturizing lotion!! You can buy it everywhere now! I work in the medical field (dry hand capital of the world) & my hands look awesome after one use!

So now these tarts are experts on beauty? ya. ok. im gonna run out an listen to these trolls.

My favorite go to moisturizer is Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream….as long as you use the fragrance free version you can use this on your eyes and face (just mix a bit with your favorite creams) it’s a miracle for cheap!!

Natalie on

The word budget and Kardashian sisters don’t belong in the same sentence together. I doubt that they budget at all!!

jco on

I agree – Rose salve is the BEST!! It works on any area that’s dry and is AWESOME on lips!

It must suck to live in a world where you have to hate on other people. If you don’t like someone or something, then don’t read the article.

I think all of the girls are at their most attractive when they are not all tarted up, and do have natural beauty, so it isn’t as if they wouldn’t have some beauty tips to share, as all women do. However, Vaseline (ugh, hate petroleum) and hot wash cloth aside, this just reads like a paid advertisement for the salon. It’s no more a tip than “stay away from the horses, son.” It’s just product placement for the salon, so take the “tip” for what it’s worth. Here’s a tip I’ll share, and they can combine it with their mother’s tip. I tried this after watching my father, a very Don Draper type with short combed back hair, do this nearly every morning. His hair was very fine and short, combed Mad Men style, so any time he needed to fix his hair in the mirror, when a shower wasn’t involved, he’d take a hot wash cloth and “scrub his head” with it. He didn’t need to wash his hair, but, it needed to be moist to comb it into place, the hot cloth scrubbed any natural oils off, dust, etc., and he’d fix it into place. I too have fine, short hair, and very often, a scrub of my head with a hot washcloth is just enough to clean it and blow dry it into place between showers. My hair thanks me for it!

I just love how these girls try to seem like everyday normal people when they don’t want to be or aren’t. It’s just another way for them to make money advertising for others and get paid. Shocks me to this day that girls look up to them! If it weren’t for Kim’s sex tape NONE of them would be in the spot light, wonders what sex tapes do for people….

Bag Balm! Great for feet and teeny little bit on hands/elbows

bebe on

YUK! between showers really? I can see that not everyone washes their hair everyday, I do every other day but regardless the body gets washed daily….hope yours does too. Kardashian tips sound great I may try a few ;)


I dont shower every day. I only wash my hair 3 times a week. There is no need to shower everyday, especiall yif all you do is sit behind a desk for 10 hours a day and then go home make dinner and go to sleep. I conserve water and take mexican showers, I spray a bunch of perfume on. HA!
