BEAUTY Watch: Rihanna Shows Off Her 3-Step Nightly Skincare Routine
Rihanna may be de starving of new music but she is giving us something as a replacement, her three-step ‘nighttime skincare routine!’
As expected, the “We Found Love” hitmaker uses products exclusively from her new Fenty Skin brand.
The singer turned beauty entrepreneur revealed that her nighttime skincare routine is “vegan, gluten-free and very Earth-conscious.”
Rihanna who is the cover star of the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar started the video with a full face of makeup.
Taking us through the process, the first step was “getting all this makeup off and cleansing my skin,” she announced. This is where her brand’s “two-in-one” makeup remover and cleanser came into play, which she explained removes “dirt and oil” (and makeup, of course). The product called the “Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser.”
The next step in Rihanna’s flawless skin routine involves one of the star’s “favorite products,” “Fat Water.”
“Fat Water” is another two-in-one product that acts as both a toner and serum.
“I called it fat water because unlike most toners, this one just sits in your hand like that,” Rihanna explained, pointing out her product’s thick consistency. This toner/serum “adds moisture to your skin,” all while “refining and reducing pores,” she explained.
For the final step of her nighttime skincare routine, Rihanna says she is “proud” of her moisturizer infused with SPF 30 sunscreen, called the “Hydra Vizor.”
The Barbadian beauty explains that it is “coral reef-friendly” and there is another benefit to this dual moisturizer and sunscreen, setting it apart from similar products.
“I want women of all skin tones and all colors to use this moisturizer without that gray white cast being left behind,” Rihanna explained. That’s right, the “Hydra Vizor” leaves no sunscreen residue behind!
Asides her products, the “Work” crooner also revealed “some of the best tips” she has received about skincare: “hydration” and a “healthy diet.”
While staying hydrated covered the basics (“drinking a lot of water,” using Fenty Beauty’s hydrating mist,) Rihanna went more into detail about how food and environment impact the skin.
Rihanna has found that people from islands with access to the “best” ingredients, environment, climate and humidity have “beautiful” skin.
“I try to implement a lot of those ingredients into my skincare line as well. One of them being very personal to me, which is the Barbados cherry — I call it Beijing cherry,” Rihanna explained.
According to Rihanna, the Barbados cherry contains more Vitamin C than an orange!
