The “KC Undercover” & “Pretty Little Liars” actress spills her daily routine & top tips
Whether it’s wearing sunscreen or drinking lots of water, it’s so important to keep your skin healthy! In our newest column, #SkincareSaturday, a different celeb will share her tips and daily routine. This week, it’s the stunning Kara Royster!
YSBnow: What are your best tips for keeping your complexion clear and healthy?
Kara: I always tell people to cut out soda and get more water in their diet – it seems easy but few do it. Also, be sure to get to know your skin, or you will have to go through a lot of useless products to figure it out. Another big one is to sanitize anything that touches your face from makeup brushes, to your phone, to your pillow. You wouldn’t put dirty hands on your face…would you?!?
YSBnow: How do you cover up a bad pimple?
Kara: Always use a green corrector, it will keep out the redness all day. Also, use the “baking method” which consists of packing on a large amount of powder on for a bit then brushing it away, this will make sure your concealer doesn’t budge. Most of all though, don’t stress about it everyone gets them from time to time.
YSBnow: What are some of your fave products?
1. Aztec Secret Indian Clay Mask – IT’S AMAZZZZZINGGG!! #1 skin care product of all time! So affordable and will last you awhile.
2. Neutrogena Cleansing Makeup Wipes – They are gentle on the skin while getting everything off.
3. Freeman Masks – There’s so many for a variety of needs. My personal favorites are the charcoal & black sugar for deep cleaning/smoothing and cucumber for calming.
YSBnow: What’s your daily skincare routine?
Kara: In the morning, I like to get a smooth canvas for my dry skin, so I start with a very gentle exfoliator. Then, I make sure to moisturize not only my face but also my neck. I hydrate my under eyes with a serum and make sure to put on a primer with SPF. At nighttime, I make sure to use a purifying cleanser to be very sure I have taken off all my makeup. Then, I use a heavy exfoliator so my skincare can go deep into the skin. I love Vitamin C serum and a heavy moisturizer. If I have a zit, the Mario Badescu drying lotion works like magic!
