Suki Waterhouse just dropped her skin care routine, and we’re obviously buying everything
Have you SEEN her skin?

Suki Waterhouse has been at the very top of our beauty tip radar ever since she spilled that she sometimes skips washing her hair in favour of a Coca Cola rinse (FYI, it is a thing if gritty, tousled texture is your goal).
So, when she took to the ‘gram to reveal her routine in the complexion care department we were glued to our screens. “Hi, I have a lot of time on my hands and have pretty much started a home salon and love to share,” she explained via social media. Relatable, right? Never before have we been so diligent with our skin care steps.
But while we love a celeb regimen that dips into wacky territory (e.g. the aforementioned soft drink wash), we must admit it’s also refreshing to find a star dealing with the same sensitivity and dehydration issues as us mere mortals.
Yep, Waterhouse’s routine is perfectly tailored to her sensitised skin type, but by no means is it boring – in fact, consider her luxurious lineup proof that we sensitive souls can still have tons of fun in the topical game.
Without further ado, here are all the products she relies on to keep her skin happy, healthy and hydrated…
Cosmydor Botanical Toning Face Cleanser
Waterhouse kicks off her double cleanse routine with this luxurious botanical blend, swiping it over her skin with a cotton pad. Ideal for sensitive skin types, it nixes impurities without stripping away moisture thanks to the coconut, argan and olive oil trio within the formula.
Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm
The second step? Cleansing balm. Her favourite formula contains grapeseed oil and vitamin E to get skin feeling silky soft and squeaky clean without triggering irritation. Designed to be massaged into skin with fingers (which Waterhouse definitely does) this velvety balm minimises the appearance of pores, plumps the complexion and melts away any last traces of makeup.
Curél Intensive Moisture Care Moisture Lotion
Once her cleansing ritual is complete, Waterhouse goes in with a hydrating lotion, which she refers to as her ‘toner’. Lotion-style formulas are a great post-cleanse alternative if you’re prone to redness like she is – far gentler than classic toning options, they’re able to balance the skin without riling it up. In fact, this soothing solution heroes complexion-calming eucalyptus extract, an ingredient able to ease inflammation in a flash.
Curél Moisture Eye Zone Essence
She definitely seems to be a fan of Curél - her eye cream of choice hails from them as well. Created specifically for dry and sensitive skin types, it’s a deeply nourishing moisturising milk-gel formula that aims to leave the delicate eye area supple, smooth and strong.
Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Serum
Formulated to de-stress the skin (are you noticing a theme here?), Waterhouse’s go-to serum contains a cocktail of ceramides (for barrier repair and plumping purposes) as well as calming cucumber seed oil to reduce visible redness and rebalance irritation. The fact that the dreamy lilac bottle will look stunning in a shelfie is purely a perk.
Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment
We all know she loves a red lip, so it’s no surprise that she relies on a quality conditioning treatment to keep her pout full, smooth and soft. This lip-nourishing balm is loaded with shea butter, jojoba oil and vitamin E (hello, soothing hydration), plus the brand’s Maxi-Lip technology, designed to diminish the appearance of lip lines while also offering a subtle plumping effect.
Kora Organics Hydrating Moisturiser
She seals all that goodness in with one final step – a moisturiser by way of fellow model-slash-mogul Miranda Kerr’s brand Kora Organics. A skin-softening situation made up of rosehip and macadamia nut oils as well as Kerr’s beloved brightening noni fruit, it leaves skin soft, supple and generously hydrated. Plus (and we cannot stress the importance of this enough), the formula’s decadent creaminess makes for a downright delightful application ritual.
