As the seasons change and temperatures continue to drop, our skincare routines must also evolve and thanks to Laura Harrier's latest interview with ESSENCE, we have details on the skincare routine you need to keep your glow-on-go all damn year.
The Hollywood star revealed that although she's never been much of a beauty enthusiast, she takes her skincare very seriously. Laura explained:
"I love skincare but have never been into anything too involved. I would love to be one of those girls who have those 12-step routines, but that's so not me. I wash my face every day with Clarins' amazing Gentle Foaming Cleanser, I sometimes follow that up with their camomile toner depending on what mood my skin is in. Then I pat on Clarins Double Serum to my face and neck. Then it's eye cream, always. No matter how tired I am, I never forget eye cream. I'll top that off with a good moisturizer. I like to keep the routine simple by using products that I trust."
Among the products that Laura can't live without is her Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate, which according to the actress, is one of her ultimate skincare must-haves.
"I seriously don't know what I was doing before I starting using this serum. I honestly notice a difference when I don't have it on. It delivers great anti-aging benefits and leaves my skin so glowy."
"One of the biggest takeaways is to not sleep in makeup EVER, which is so much easier said than done. Whenever I come home from a super long night, I make a point to always remove my makeup and not face-plant in the pillow like I may want to. I also dunk my face in a big bowl of ice water first thing in the morning before events. I leave my face in the bowl for as long as I can stand it and my skin feels instantly more awake. It's like a big cup of coffee, but for my skin!"
"Another thing I'll also always do is a cream mask on the plane. I take a make-up wipe and clean my whole face, then apply a clear mask instead of a sheet one so I don't look crazy to the people around me! Right now I'm loving Clarins SOS Hydra Mask. It feels so good and really brings my skin back to life. Then I'll spray a rose water on top. Although we're not traveling much these days, I will be sure do that when work starts back up again."
When it comes to combatting dryness and finding stress-related skincare solutions, Laura had this to say:
"Probably how much my mental health affects my skin. I noticed how my frustration with everything going on in the world really made my body ache and my face a bit dry. Yoga has been a godsend. I need to use super hydrating products to combat dryness. I slather my face with Clarins Multi-Active Night Cream at the end of the day and wake up the next morning hydrated and refreshed. For my hair, I've rediscovered the beauty of a nice long deep conditioner! Olaplex is my go-to."
