Actor Luka Sabbat Swears By A $1,700 Fragrance & Never Cleansing His Face

His self-care routine screams simple but luxe.

Celebrity News

If you're unfamiliar with the Black-ish college spinoff, Grown-ish, you at least need to know actor and creative Luka Sabbat. On TV, he plays Yara Shahidi's "will they, won't they" love interest, Luca—and in some ways he's just playing himself. IRL, he's the unintentionally cool heartthrob of today's generation.

His very chill demeanor transcends not only with his style but with his skincare routine, too. He keeps it simple for the most part but makes it a point to do a little extra when necessary, whether it's wearing a $1,700 scent, investing in nail art and pedicures, or making facial serums his one-step skincare routine.

In an interview with Into The Gloss, Luka breaks down everything you need to know for a very simple going out regime, along with his self-care routine must-haves.

His Going Out Routine

With a lifestyle living hotel to hotel, he formed a habit of just using what was around. That changed when he discovered Dior's Capture Totale C.E.L.L. ENERGY Super Potent Age-Defying Intense Serum. The luxury serum ranges anywhere from $155-$240.

"It just feels nice and smells good. It refreshes me."

He may be on to something by moisturizing with a serum. If it's hydrating enough and has properties that create softer and healthier-looking skin, you may be able to skip a moisturizer depending on your skin type.

On lip care:

His need for lip care came purely from supporting his friend Kristen Noel Crawley. She's the creator of KNC Beauty and sends Luka lip balms and under eye patches. Get you a friend who cares about your skin!

On fragrances:

To wrap up his routine, he adds a couple sprays of Lamyland by Michèle Lamy. The $1,700 perfume is a rare find and apparently there are only 1,000 bottles of it in existence.

"It's very intense at first but it settles really nicely. Very warm, very musk, and it goes well with the scent of cigarettes, which works for me because I smoke."

The Self-Care Routine He Swears By

Luka mentioned two very slept-on self-care practices — pedicures and switching things up.

Sometimes a change of pace, scenery, or in this case, smell is needed to switch up from time to time. Upon stumbling on his newfound $1,700 signature scent, he decided to enter a new phase of life with a different vibe.

"I used to wear another scent, but I attach scents to people and I wore that while I was dating a chick for three years. When we broke up I knew I couldn't wear the same scent as I entered a new part of my life."

Sometimes with letting people go, you have to also cut ties with the remnants of them and create a new memory, beginning, or routine that aligns better with the new chapter of your life.

On pedicures:

I just want to say I'm here for more men making pedicures a part of their self-care routine. Luka schedules at least two pedicures a month, he told the publication. He prefers gel and occasionally adds stickers. This is a crucial part of his self-care for creative expression and just having pretty ass feet.

"Pedicures are mad important because dudes be mad insecure to take their shoes off at people's homes and show their crusty ass toes. After a pedicure, there's something nice about having a clean ass foot and putting it in a clean ass sock—that feeling is unparalleled."

On facials:

"That's the one thing I do consistently for my face. I've never shaved myself in my life—it's worth the $50 to $60."

Luka doesn't seem like a facial kinda guy. We can tell from his super-simple going out routine. However, he has a guilty pleasure for getting a straight-razor shave once or twice a month. He has places in both Los Angeles and New York where he can not only get the proper long-lasting shave but a mini facial with warm towels and face masks, too.

I’m pretty sure that we’ve all heard the saying, “opinions are like buttholes” (yeah, I cleaned that up a bit) and everyone has one. Well, when it comes to the topic of advice, if we’re gonna be real about it, a lot of times all it is, is an opinion too. So, does this mean that we’re never supposed to ask for advice or take any when it’s offered? I mean, I get that since I’m a marriage life coach, it comes off as completely on-brand that I would say that receiving advice can actually be quite beneficial.
