Over time, I've collected bits and pieces of the routine beauty habits that create Karrueche's beautiful skin. For the most part, we've been surviving on scraps, but we are eating today girlies!
Karrueche recently spilled the details to her entire regimen. Because I'm such a creeper, I've already uncovered and written about some of what she does to create her glow. But there were some new revelations in this article that I wasn't previously aware of.
Let's discuss.Thanks to an interview from The Cut, we know have full knowledge of the secrets to Karrueche's perfect skin. I'm sure some of it is genetics, but this girl really puts in work. You can tell that healthy skin is something she's passionate about. These are the type of people that we can learn the most from. I mean, just look at her skin.
The first secret that Karrueche reveals is that she's invested in a facial steamer. She utilizes it to prep her skin prior to masking. This is absolutely brilliant because steaming before any facial treatment will only enhance the results. When the pores are clear (post-steaming) the hydrating effects of a mask are amplified. Following the mask, she seals all the goodness in by closing her pores using ice cubes. Here's the running list of celebrities who use ice-cubes in their regimen.
1. Naomi Campbell
3. Jasmine Tookes
4. Karrueche Tran
That's just a few. If you weren't digging my cold shower recommendation, an ice cube facial is probably the next best thing.
She then goes on to name off a few of her favorite masks. Turn out I was right when I guessed that her golden mask was Peter Thomas Roth's 24k Lifting/Firming Mask. She says it herself in this interview. Kae's other favorite masks include Glam Glow, Origins and LaMer. Sounds like a pretty good line up if you ask me.
Beyond the intense masking regimen, we know that Karrueche is a big fan of saunas. She relies on the sauna as a way to do a major detox on her skin. She doesn't go into much detail in the interview, but we're already aware that this girl doesn't just sauna, she has a complete sauna-skin clearing routine.
One, not so healthy habit she has is obsessively picking at her skin. For most of us, this is a death sentence. Discoloration and acne scars will abound when we mess with our skin. But, with the help of a steamer or sauna, removing gunk that lays beneath the surface becomes much easier. That's probably how she's able to get away with it.
If you're desperate to clear out white/black heads, laying below the surface of your skin, try this multi-step technique.
The last thing I want to highlight from her interview is a reveal of her HOLY GRAIL skin product. Although I prided myself in figuring out most of her ritual, I had no knowledge of the ONE ITEM that gets her the most compliments.
Karrueche once splurged on Chanel's Hydra Beauty Serum and has never looked back. Apparently, this stuff is so good that she immediately restocks once it runs out. It makes sense to always go back to the product that is guaranteed to generate comments. This item isn't cheap but seems to be pretty amazing. All the reviews are glowing. If you want to give it a try, be prepared to invest over $100.00. If you aren't ready just yet, consider trying the hero ingredient and see if you can get favorable results. One thing I noticed was that camellia seed oil was included. This is the same oil that Gabrielle Union swears by. I love Camellia seed but I haven't incorporated it into my skin care regimen. I'm definitely going to blend a drop or two into my favorite cream or serum and see what transpires. Then adding Chanel's Hydra Serum to my splurge list.
One beauty secret that we're aware of, but wasn't mentioned in the article is the fact that Karrueche also indulges in various health tonics & juices that keep her skin glowing from the inside out. She also goes into her favorite hair products. But I won't spoil it, you can check out the full interview here.
