Hailey Bieber will forever be one of our girl crushes! When our girl said, “My standard when I go to bed at night is that if I’m not getting into bed looking like a glazed donut, then I’m not doing it right”, we heard it loud and clear. We tried to grasp as much information we can while watching her video and are ready to share with you what we learned from Hailey’s skincare routine. Keep on reading because we have quite a few things to share!
Hailey Bieber’s 5 Step Glazed Donut Routine
Step 1: Oil cleansing
The first thing that Hailey uses to start her nighttime skincare routine is an oil cleanser. She says, “I don’t use makeup wipes. I started oil cleansing during quarantine and it has honestly made the biggest difference in my skin”. She uses a cleansing oil that contains 4 fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin as well but any makeup remover can work as your first step of double cleansing. Not just makeup, but double cleansing ensures that all the dirt, pollution, and even sunscreen are off the table and you have a clean face.
Step 2: Hydrating cleanser
Her next step is doing a second cleanse by using a gentle, hydrating and milky cleanser. She likes cleansers that don’t foam and have nourishing properties. Since her motive is to have that glazed donut look, hydrating and gently formulated cleanser will ensure her skin doesn't feel dry and stripped off from its natural oils.
Our Daily Duet Face Wash is what first came to our mind when Hailey recommended using a gentle, hydrating cleanser because it just ticks off all the boxes! It effectively removes all the dirt, grime, and sebum while making sure it’s not harsh on the skin. And the good news is, it doubles up as a makeup remover as well. So, if you don’t want to spend 10-15 minutes every day on oil cleansing, this is your pick.
Step 3: Peptide serum
After she is done washing her face, she takes a towel and gently pats her skin without rubbing it too much. She also makes sure her face is not completely dried down and is slightly damp so that it is prepped for the next step, which is a serum. She specifically used a Peptide serum.
If you are wondering what Peptides are and what they do for the skin, we have an entire article dedicated to answering your question. Read it here: What are Peptides in Skincare?
One thing to note here is that along with Hailey, a lot of celebrities don’t use Toners and they use a serum on a cleansed face. Gone are the days when people used toners to balance their pH levels because almost all cleansers these days are pH balanced. Toners are now made to either hydrate your skin or exfoliate it. However, some people just like the feeling of using toners right after cleansing. Skincare is very subjective and one should always do what works for them. If you are one of those who loves using toner, go ahead!
Step 4: Thick moisturizer
At night, Hailey prefers using a thick cream that delivers intense moisture to the skin. The moisturizer she uses is a barrier repair cream that deeply nourishes the skin and keeps the skin barrier healthy. Dry skin beauties might enjoy thick moisturizers at night, however oily or combination skin types will not, just like Hailey’s forehead. She avoids using thick moisturizer on her face when there’s active acne as that might lead to more breakouts.
If you are looking for a lightweight, yet hydrating moisturizer that works on skin barrier repair, you are in for a treat. Our Ceramide Supercream Moisturizer is here to save your day. Did you know that Ceramides are the building blocks of your skin but due to certain factors, their production is slowed down? To have that firm, radiant, and younger-looking skin, you need to apply ceramides topically. Our girl Hailey knows this secret and that’s what she suggests doing as well!
Step 5: Facial oil
Since Hailey has a sensitive skin type that is more on the drier side, she loves pampering herself with a sweet layer of facial oil. And we believe this is what makes her skin look like a glazed donut! She takes a few drops and pats them on her skin. After this she also massages her face a little bit, focusing on her cheeks and forehead.
If you can spare a few minutes for a facial massage or a gua sha session, it can be game-changing for your skin. We have talked about a few tools and techniques that you can use to de-stress and de-puff. You can read all about them here: Skin tools to de-puff and de-stress!
Lastly, since she had a few breakouts, she used an active acne treatment that was suggested by her dermatologist followed by a pimple patch. If it was us, we would have applied the spot treatment before the moisturizer. You always want your treatments to be closest to your skin without any barrier. But then again, skincare is subjective and do what works for you! If it is effective and makes you happy, that’s what matters.
