Everything You Need To Know About Selena Gomez’s Skincare Routine

0

Selena Gomez may have gained fame as an actress and singer, but the multi-hyphenate star is quickly making her mark on the beauty industry. Last year, Gomez launched her makeup line Rare Beauty, a brand that embraces unique imperfections. The collection spans makeup basics like foundation and concealer, to tools like brushes and blotting papers.

Gomez’s love for makeup has also translated to a love for skincare. In a video with Vogue last year, the singer shared her routine for her combination skin, which she describes as “dry” with “certain areas oily.” She also opened up to ELLE about her thoughts on acne, revealing she has no hacks for troubleshooting breakouts. “Nope because life is life,” she said. “If it’s a photoshoot, I’m probably more lucky because Photoshop, and if it’s a close up, I have to have makeup, and I just kind of do it. You can’t really fight it. I think there are things that I could do or procedures for sure, but I just don’t.”

Here are the products and skincare rules that Gomez swears by.

Don’t sleep with makeup on.

You won’t catch Gomez sleeping without a clean face. “I just can’t understand when—and no offense—people have to wear makeup all the time, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, you can sleep with a tinted moisturizer or a self-tanner on your face and you can wake up,'” she told ELLE. “For me, I just think that’s not my vibe, plus I do breakout. I don’t know if it’s bad advice, I just think it’s kind of to each their own. For me, I can’t really sleep with things on my body or tinted things just because I get worried. It’s not my vibe.”

Use a soothing cleanser.

To wash away the day, Gomez uses a soothing foam face cleanser. “It actually helps because I have dry skin,” she told Vogue. “But in certain areas, I have oily, which is really annoying.” A cleanser like SkinCeuticals Soothing Cleanser Foam has calming ingredients like cucumber extract, glycerin, orchis mascula extract formulated for sensitive skin.

Get a hydrating moisturizer.

To hydrate and plump up the skin, Gomez loves Tatcha’s Dewy Skin Cream. “It’s so thick and yummy that you don’t actually have to use that much of it,” Gomez told Vogue. “I think when I was younger, I didn’t really take care of my skin, because I didn’t really know why. I was working since I was seven and had makeup on and figuring all that out. So I would say I didn’t care until the last few years and I realized how important it was.” To apply, Gomez uses her hands to massage the product in an upwards motion.

Sunscreen is essential.

Gomez never leaves the house without wearing a protective shield of SPF. “I like to put sunscreen on because not only is it important to keep your skin looking fresh but I have lupus, so being in the sun is difficult for me, so I like to put my sunscreen on,” she told Vogue. Her go-to is Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense SPF 30, which is sheer, lightweight, and fragrance-free.

Use shea butter for a smooth shave.

To get her skin soft and smooth, Gomez uses a drugstore favorite. “I like to take my time in the shower and turn it into a steam room” she told Into the Gloss. “Maybe I’ll shave with the EOS Moisturizing Shave Cream, which is nice because it isn’t too thick.”

Spray a mist before applying makeup.

Before applying foundation, Gomez relies on a mist to prep the skin. “I use the Always An Optimist spray as it has multiple ingredients to give you that fresh look and have moisture added on,” Gomez told Allure. Ingredients like niacinamide, hydrating sodium hyaluronate and a mix of botanicals create the perfect canvas. “It also smells like a spa—bonus.”

Eliminate under-eye circles.

To wake up tired eyes in the morning, Gomez suggests a revitalizing eye cream. “What’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy—if you get dark circles, it’s the shit,” Gomez told Into the Gloss. “I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb.”

De-gunk with pore strips.

Gomez uses another drugstore favorite for fighting blackheads. “The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too—plus they work!,” she told Into the Gloss. “When I don’t get a chance to do the whole routine in the morning, it really bums me out. It kind of affects your mood when you don’t take enough time to pamper yourself. When I’m home, I like to wake up at least an hour before I need to just to have coffee and not have makeup on.”
