How many times have you asked a guy for skin care advice? Never? Same. But it turns out some men’s skin care routines actually extend beyond bar soaps and gel washes with scent names like ‘Anarchy’ and ‘G.O.A.T.’. Case in point: Taylor Zakhar Perez.
The Red, White & Royal Blue star recently sat down with Allure to spill all the skin care secrets behind his flawless, glowing complexion. And it turns out Zakhar Perez’s flawless skin is thanks to more than just genetics (although it definitely pays to have an esthetician for a mum).
“[While I was] growing up, my mum was an esthetician, so she just always taught us the importance of skin care,” he shared with Allure. And at 31, Zakhar Perez still follows his mum’s advice. His go-to rules? Wash your face twice a day, moisturise, and, most importantly, never forget the SPF.
So if you’ve ever dreamed of Hollywood-worthy skin, here’s every product Taylor Zakhar Perez star puts on his face.
Taylor Zakhar Perez’s skin care routine
Turns out not every man uses a 5-in-1 to cleanse their face. In fact, Zakhar Perez swears by a double cleanse to wash the day away. “Sometimes I use PreCleanse from Dermalogica, just depending on if I'm working on a job where they're putting makeup on me or if I go surfing and I have heavy sunblock on my face,” he told Allure. A huge green flag if we’ve ever seen one…

Dermalogica Active Clay Cleanser
Zakhar Perez struggles with breakouts, especially around his T-zone, and says this clay cleanser saves the day every time. The man has TASTE.

Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream
Thought this was only spotted on your mum’s skin care shelf? Think again. The Clarins Extra-Firming Day Cream has become a mainstay in Zakhar Perez’s summer skin care routine. "I've been using Clarins for 10 years now, and I do see really different results with it for me," he shared with Popsugar in 2021.

Shiseido Vital Perfection Overnight Firming Treatment
As his career requires a lot of travel (you know, between shoots, filming and international press tours – no biggie!), Zakhar Perez tends to pick up a few skin care essentials in duty free shops. And La Mer’s The Eye Concentrate is among his go-to eye cream picks. A man after our own hearts.

EltaMD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45
Like any good skin care routine, the actor’s morning regimen ends with a derm-approved SPF. "My mom believes even if you aren't going outside — even if it's cloudy and it's snowy,” he shared with Popsugar. “She says, 'You still need to wear SPF,' which I still hate, but I do it."

If you think that’s where Zakhar Perez’s beauty ritual ends, you’re wrong. The actor visits a facialist in Sherman Oaks California when he’s home, and is a regular at Barbara Sturm’s spa in London when he’s travelling.
As for body care? He defeats ashy legs with regular moisturising – although his go-to body moisturiser is still TBC (stay tuned…).
And there you have it, folks. If you weren’t in love with him already as Alex Claremont-Diaz, his skin care routine is sure to have you swooning.
