The actress says her mom always reminded her to focus on self-care—starting with the skin, E! News reports. "I've learned a lot from my mother, and we always spoke about taking care of yourself first and foremost. She taught me the importance of properly washing your face—those subtle steps go a long way," Shahidi says.
Thanks to her mom's great advice, Shahidi has been babying her skin from an early age, most crucially with a great cleanser. While she's into any oil-based cleanser that gives her dry skin a moisturizing glow—like Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil—she also loves making a DIY solution using one of two ingredients for a totally natural wash.
Aloe vera is known as a skin-hydrating powerhouse that can lower inflammation, and antioxidant-packed vitamin E is not only anti-inflammatory, but it can also moisturize skin and also fight off signs of aging.
When she doesn't have a face wash on hand, Shahidi turns to "pure cut aloe vera or vitamin E oil"—two major skin-boosting ingredients. Aloe vera is a skin-hydrating powerhouse that can lower inflammation, and antioxidant-packed vitamin E is not only anti-inflammatory, but it can also moisturize skin and also fight off signs of aging—especially if don't have oily or acne-prone skin.
So, if you ever find yourself without your go-to cleanser, give these natural solutions a try. Heck—they might even lead you to change your face-washing routine for good.
