Even if you’re happy with your simple skin-care routine that involves a simple, sudsy face wash and some moisturizer, you might consider adding some benefit-rich steps, courtesy of Lucy Hale. The actress takes her skin super seriously and makes time to get through her routine—which, she estimated to Allure, totals at 15 steps (!!!)—despite a busy schedule of work and travel.
While there’s nothing wrong with a streamlined regimen, it’s also totally fine to lean toward something more involved. (Hey, triple-masking is popular for a reason, after all.) And when your self-care ritual pulls double duty by gifting you a flawless canvas in the form of your face, why not capitalize? Hale is game: “It’s important to take care of your skin to begin with and then you don’t really need to do much to enhance what’s already there,” she told Allure. “I enjoy [my routine]. I never skip it. I look forward to it at night.”

In fact, she enjoys it so much that she starts her steps as soon as possible—sometimes even in the car on her way home at night, thanks to her trusty face wipes. But once she gets back to her place, that’s where the real fun starts. After washing her face four times—starting with a cleansing balm or oil—she uses a cleansing milk.
Next up, if it’s “that time during the week,” she’ll use an exfoliator then do “one more wash through with the cleansing milk.” After hopping in the shower, she goes over her skin with a cotton pad soaked with micellar water because “there’s makeup hidden in places you never think about.”
