Actress Kerry Washington, 43, is known for having glowing, smooth skin—and she just shared some tips on how she keeps her complexion flawless—both with and without makeup—in a new YouTube video for Vogue. But first, the Little Fires Everywhere star begins her beauty routine with her hair. She sprays on a “scalp tonic” of distilled water, non-alcoholic witch hazel, and essential oils of rosemary, eucalyptus, peppermint, and lavender. “It keeps your scalp super healthy, and also you become like walking aromatherapy,” Kerry says.
Next, the Scandal alum moves on to her skincare routine, saying, “I do think of my skincare routine as self-love.” “It’s not just about looking cute, it’s also really about having skin that’s healthy and not too itchy and cracked and all that stuff that happens with eczema,” The Prom actress adds.
Before she moisturizes, Kerry uses a rosewater mist (Serena Loves Aura Cleansing Mist) and an SPF serum (Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Face Serum SPF 60+). Then, she throws on some 24-karat gold eye patches (Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks) and uses a facial massager to get some extra circulation in her skin.
