Amelia Gray recommends this acne treatment to all her friends

“[It] kills all of the bacteria and germs”

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / October 22 2023

If models being public about their struggles with acne has taught us anything, it’s that it takes a lot of work to make a living on your physical beauty alone.

Some swear by targeted acne serums for banishing blemishes, while others are happy to slap on a pimple patch and call it a day. 

However, Amelia Gray doesn’t like to leave anything to chance. In a recent instalment of Vogue Beauty Secrets the model shared every single product she uses in her 12-step skin care routine, which included an anti-acne lotion she recommends to all of her friends. 

“I kind of have sensitive skin. I’m also very much struggling with a fashion week pimple and a stye or two, but we are all human,” Gray said initially in the YouTube video. 

Although she admitted she’s learned a lot about her skin through working professionally as a model for the last two years, her love for skin care is something she developed as a child.  

“Fun fact: my dad has never washed his face in his whole life, and he says that that’s the secret,” she joked to the camera. “But I think that I have a 400-step skin care routine because my mum never really wore makeup. It’s not really her thing, it’s not my thing. She always had all of this skin care, and I would love playing with it.” FYI, for anyone who isn’t a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stan (and honestly, why aren’t you?!), Gray is the daughter of actors/Housewives icons Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. Good genes, we know.

Now, Gray is embodying her mother’s influential spirit by encouraging a love for skin care among her friendship circle, and providing them with the gift that keeps on giving — her product recommendations for good skin. Specifically, her go-to anti-acne treatment. 

“I’ve turned a lot of my friends onto this product: This is the Benzoyl Peroxide [lotion] from Jan Marini ($84 at Jan Marini),” she spilled. “This basically kills all of the bacteria and germs that pimples are created by.”

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
