Dove Cameron's latest single may be called Lazy Baby (FYI if you haven't already, we'll accept a brief delay whilst you add it to your playlist) but when it comes to skin care, she's anything but lazy.
Not only does she slather on a plethora of creams, oils and gels, but she also gets pretty deep into device land, too.
Luckily, she spilled her entire routine in a recent chat with Glamour, and there's everything from budget buys to splashy skin tools in the mix. Long story short, we're obsessed and we'll bet you will be too...
Cleanser: Shu Uemura Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil
"First thing in the morning, I'm using my Shu Uemura oil-based cleanser, which has powerful antipollutant antioxidants. It's so oily it's literally like putting olive oil on your face, which I love. And it makes my skin really glowy and happy. I'm the biggest fan. I've been using it for years. They don't pay me, but they absolutely should for how much I talk about it."
Toner: Thayer Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner
"After cleansing I immediately go for my Thayer's Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner. It's my favourite. It's so cheap. You can get it everywhere, at basically any drugstore. It's been a nice, basic staple for me for a long time. The witch hazel in the formula keeps my skin clear, and it's not heavy on alcohol or drying like so many other toners. I love the scent of the rose petals; there's something about it that's so nice in the morning. It feels cleansing and like a different energy. But also I feel like anything with rose in it, or rosehip oil, is good for your skin. I don't know if it's psychosomatic — like something I've filed away — or if it's really true, but it works for me."
Serum: Clarins Double Serum
"Next up, I use my Clarins Double Serum. I got it in a gift bag at some event in L.A. It was a little sample, and the second I ran out I was like, 'Oh my God, I need more'. It's one of my absolute staples because it's so moisturising and thick, but it doesn't feel sticky. I honestly don't even know what ingredients are in it beyond that it helps boost radiance. I could just tell my skin loved it and kept getting more."
Gua Sha: Herbivore Botanicals Rose Quartz Gua Sha
"After I put on my serum, when my face is still dewy, I like to do a rose quartz gua sha. I'll use that to de-puff under my eyes, wake up my face, bring some bloodflow to my cheeks, and get rid of some tension around my forehead, things like that. It's my favourite part of my skin care routine."
Microcurrent Device: Foreo Bear
"I love my Foreo Bear. I use it every morning as a quick three-minute system, and it's absolutely amazing. The device uses microcurrents to bring out your cheekbones and bring up your jaw. It keeps me from looking puffy, and it wakes my face up. I'm not usually the type of person to rave about a device, but it really, really, really works."
Oil: Farmacy Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil
"I bought this when I was doing a movie in New Mexico, where it was so freaking dry I felt like I was scaling. Like, my skin was falling off. I'm sure you love that visual. So this oil saved me. It's really thick; it looks like honey and smells amazing. I also like that it feels thick to the touch, but it goes on your face really well – it thins out as you put it on. Throughout the day I can still feel it in my skin. It doesn't evaporate, so my skin is buoyant and happy all day."
Budget Moisturiser: Weleda Skin Food
"For moisturiser I honestly just stick to Weleda's Ultra Rich Original. It's so thick it's literally like pancake batter. And it's one of those products you can use everywhere: on your body, your hands, wherever you want."
Luxury Moisturiser: Augustinus Bader Rich Cream
"If I'm feeling fancy, I also love the Augustinus Bader Rich Cream. It's thinner than the Weleda, so I choose between the two depending on what my skin wants that day. The Bader cream feels like it's giving a slow delivery of nutrients to my face. I don't know how to explain it. I just really love what it does to my skin. I wake up glowing. I know it's one of the more expensive things here, but I definitely think it's worth the money."
SPF: Supergoop Glowscreen SPF 40
"My favourite sunscreen right now is the Supergoop Glowscreen. It's an SPF 40, but it's also got a bit of a tinted moisturiser in it, which is really easy for me. I'll just put that on in the morning along with a little concealer and call it a day. I love Supergoop in general because everything is noncomedogenic. I never break out when I use their products."
"One of my favorite spot treatments is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. I feel like everybody knows about that. They're really good for full-blown zits that aren't going anywhere. The drying lotion really zaps them down."
Face Mask: Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask
"[One of my favourite masks is the] Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask. It's unbelievable. [Miranda Kerr, Kora's founder] keeps me stocked. I don't know what it is, but it just never fails me. You know when you use a face mask and it's like, eh, that was fine. This one is brilliant. It keeps me glowing and flushed and perfectly exfoliated. I like to use it once a week or right before a big shoot."
