Katy Perry just credited Miranda Kerr with 'changing her skin'

We stan a skin care secret-sharing modern family

Digital Beauty Editor / April 16 2021

We’d like to think that there are officially no people left on the planet who assume that an ex and a current partner can’t get along, but just in case there are, Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry are here to prove that not only can they support each other in general, but they can support each other in the skin care stakes, too.

In Kerr’s case, Perry's support comes in the form of a glowing endorsement of her Kora Organics line, and on the flipside, Kerr’s helping Perry out by supporting her in reaching her skin care goals. Seems like a decent trade to us.

Still lost re: the link between these two? We've got two words for you: Orlando Bloom. Kerr and Bloom (who share 10-year-old son Flynn) were married from 2010 to 2013, while Bloom and Perry welcomed daughter Daisy in 2020 following their 2019 engagement.

The two took to an Instagram Live to chat all things complexion-care, and Perry shared that she was jumping on (with nothing but a “little concealer”, FYI) to “show off her skin” after trialling Kora's Turmeric Glow Moisturiser, the newest launch from Kerr's line.



"One of the great things about about being close with Miranda is that I get to try out all her products, especially when her son who's 10 years old comes home with them and I look through his little backpack... and you gave me this new moisturiser," Perry told viewers, sharing how she got her hands on the stuff.

"It has changed my skin game so much. I was like ‘Miranda, if you ever wanna do a live about it, [I’m down]. I have no investment in it, nobody's paying me...I've used everything on my skin. I've used La Mer, I've used all of the amazing dermatologists in LA, all of their lines, and this one has changed my skin so much. People are like 'you're glowing! You've got rosy cheeks!'"

Kerr also gave a bit of a breakdown of why she created it and what it does: "I'm obsessed with brightening, because I've had pigmentation on and off ever since I had Flynn, and I have a constant battle of trying to fight it. Turmeric really helps with that; it's anti-inflammatory and really brightening for the skin."

The recommendation means a lot, too, considering Perry has previously dealt with skin concerns that made finding a moisturiser a bit tough. "I have had adult acne in the past, and that's why I had been not leaning into heavy moisturiser, because I'm going to get these cystic zits underneath my skin that I can't even pop... I was a little bit scared of heavy moisturisers."

That fear, however, is now a thing of the past. "I use it for both morning and night, and before I'm about to put on a ton of makeup," Perry confirmed. "I don't even use primer anymore. Anybody that knows me knows I love to lean into the whole glam [thing], but this doesn't make my makeup so dry-looking anymore; it makes it very fresh and youthful."

She's not the only one in the Perry-Bloom household sneaking a swipe of the stuff, either – "Orlando uses it as well; we kind of fight over the [refillable] pods." Damn, that's one in-demand face cream.
