During early 2010, proper skin care routine was considered a luxury – that only the bourgeoisie could afford it.
Our skincare products would only include a facial wash (or soap that you don’t use for your body), face moisturizer, and heaps of lotion. Until 2016 came, the concept of a whole skin care routine boomed wildly after millennials sought answers for all their skin problems.
In an annual beauty-buying survey in 2016 by TABS Analytics, cosmetics and skincare categories within the beauty industry thrive on millennial buyers. Millennials would spend thousands of pesos for all their skincare needs.
For instance, the 10-Step Korean skincare routine prompted every skincare addict to follow the routine in pursuit of Korean glass-like skin. Millennials started consuming a lot of probiotic, believing that killing bad bacteria in the gut will lead to better skin.
Because of the boom of these skin care trends, celebrities with good skin also started sharing their secrets. To semi-quote Uncle Ben of Spider-Man: “With great popularity and influence (because you’re a celebrity) comes great responsibility…” in making sure that you share your secret to good skin!
So here are 5 flawless celebrities who shared their skincare routine!
For a 22-year-old, Zendaya is wearing a lot of hats for her 52.8 million followers. But the multi-talented singer, dancer, actress, model, and activist is only getting started. All eyes on her as she continues to pursue her career in acting, so it’s important that she takes good care of her skin to put her best face forward. Especially in red carpet events that she seems to always attend, Zendaya always serves face every time. Her skincare routine is no secret, though. In her website, she shares the skincare products that she uses every day to keep her skin looking fresh and flawless.
First, Zendaya cleans her face with Shea Moisture African Black Soap and Facial Cleansing Wipes to remover all the dirt and impurities from her face. Then, she uses Thayers Rose Water Witch Hazel as a toner to return her face’s natural pH balance. Lastly, she uses The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil to give skin its natural plump in the morning.
Maris is not afraid of showing her bare face. If you happen to stumble upon her Instagram, Maris enjoys showing off her face even without makeup. Her secret? Following her 6-step skin care.
First, Maris washes her face to cleanse the dirt and makeup, then she uses Garnier’s Micellar Water to remove the remaining makeup that’s left from washing her face. Then she uses a toner, followed by snail cream to keep her skin soft. Just like Zendaya, Maris also uses Vitamin E oil for brightening her dark spots. Finally, she spritzes some rose spray to keep herself cool and refreshed.
Even with her smooth and blemish-free skin, it’s surprising that Maine has the simplest skincare routine of all! In her blog, she shared her 2-step daytime skincare routine. “After taking a shower, I apply a thin layer of Cetaphil face moisturizing cream along with Shiseido sunscreen UV protector with SPF50+.” Hashtag #blessed.
It’s pretty clear that Pia needs zero makeup because of her perfect skin. Her secret: she removes her makeup at night and moisturizes her skin very well.
After a whole day of wearing heavy makeup, she makes sure that she removes all of it before hitting the sack. She uses a cotton pad with a makeup remover and gently swipes it all over her face. “Always do it twice, just really clean up everything, [especially] around the eyes,” she said. Aside from making sure that her face is completely clean, she moisturizes her face well. She moisturizes in the morning and at night.
Liza Soberano does not only cleanse and moisturize, but she exfoliates too. Her first step is to remove all her makeup with her trusty makeup remover, then she double-cleanses by washing her face with facial wash. Liza uses a toner, then she exfoliates by using a gentle facial scrub to get rid of dry skin that makes skin dull. According to her: “It’s not enough to just wash your face, you have to deep-clean, too!” Lastly, she lets her skin rest with a good moisturizer.
After knowing all these celebs secrets in achieving that flawless complexion, we learned that:
1. Cleansing is very important.
These celebs go the extra mile to make sure that their skin is free from dirt and makeup to let their skin breathe.
2. Moisturizing is as important as cleansing.
After stripping out all the oils and moisture after washing, giving our skin the moisture it needs is important for it to regenerate easily, giving us a more radiant skin.
3. Consistency is key.
Always remember that it’s not called a routine if it’s a one-time thing.
