You know those skin-care and beauty products that you use until the very last drop? The ones that you’ve spent entire brunches/text threads/email chains telling your friends about? They’re the best of the best…so amazing that you’d never risk putting them in a piece of checked luggage. At Well+Good, we call those our Beauty VIPs (you know, Very Important Products). In this series, we ask women in wellness and the public eye what beauty products they use every single day and why—with an entire Internet of options to choose from—these items stand out.
Movie star Emma Roberts might play the mean girl on screen (Scream Queens, anyone?), but IRL she's pretty down-to-earth. In fact, she's a bookworm—one who gets more pleasure out of recommending books to people than anything else (i.e. why she's been running a book club, called Belletrist, with her best friend for a year now).
Oh, and she's got a seriously impressive self-care routine: "I wake up really early, but sleep to me is the most important thing," says Roberts. "In the morning, I've been meditating, and I've been working with some crystals. Today I meditated with aquamarine, which is my new favorite stone." Now, that doesn't sound so villainous.
"I always try to let my skin breathe."
As for maintaining her glow, the actress takes care of her skin so that it (ideally) never gets inflamed. "For me, I try to avoid getting my skin to that place [where it's breaking out]," she says. "When I'm not working, I like to not wear makeup since it'll clog my pores. I always try to let my skin breathe."
But when it comes to skin care? Well, then Roberts is a bona fide beauty obsessee. "I'm also a product junkie," she says. "It's a problem—every surface of my bathroom is covered with products. I'll try anything—I don't need any convincing." Here, she sounds off on those essentials that keep her jet-setting complexion in check.
Keep reading for the beauty products Roberts swears by for glowy skin.
"I literally always have the Charlotte Tilbury dry mask with me," she tells me. "I feel like it's my lifesaver on a plane."
"I'm obsessed with the Amorepacific face mist," says Roberts. "I feel like if you have a mask and a mist, you'll be able to stay hydrated. I hate feeling dry."
"I wash my face every morning and night—I always take my makeup off," she says. "I use the Neutrogena wipes—they're a lifesaver. I have them everywhere: in my car, at home, on set, I bring them on a plane. Having makeup wipes and taking off makeup whenever you don't have to wear it is so important."
"I'm obsessed with [Dr. Sturm's] products," says Roberts. "I was in New York for a while and my skin was looking so dull, so I got her products and within a week I saw my skin change. She's amazing and I'm obsessed with her blood cream—it's literally changed my skin and I'm rationing it out."
"I always try to have a hand cream on me," she says. "I use Jenna Hipp's hand cream. She does my nails and I just love the one she makes."
