Plus-size model, television presenter and body positivity advocate Ashley Graham always looks fabulous. Strip off the makeup and she may look even better. Graham, a new mom this year, drops her skincare routine and shows why she's not hesitant to go makeup-free. As she tells Elle, "I'm all about moisture and having glowing skin."
The first thing Graham will tell you is to wash your face before going to bed and remove your makeup. She's loyal to Bioderma Micellar Water and has used it for years before it even became popular. Before using a facial cleanser, she dampens a cotton round with it and gets that first round of cleansing done. To wash her face, she uses SkinMedica Facial Cleanser, but likes changing it up once in a while. "My routine has really been trial and error, and I don't always stick to one brand," she adds.
From cleansing, she moves on to prepping her face for her skincare staples. First, she wipes her face with La Suite Skin Tone Enhancement Pads from Union Square Dermatology. She then follows that with a vitamin C serum (SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid). She also likes DefenAge Skincare 8-in-1 Serum.
To keep her skin moist and glowing, she uses Retrouve Intensive Replenishing Facial Moisturizer and for preventive care, also uses the same brand's Revitalizing Eye Concentrate. She also told Vogue that she regularly uses a face roller to depuff her face and promote lymphatic drainage. When breakouts attack, she turns to Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion.
Graham's day routine consists of facial wash, moisturizer, and sunblock. She tells Into The Gloss that Dermophisiologique Skin Photo Block is her favorite sunscreen and her go-to lip balm is the "tried and tested" Aquaphor Healing Ointment. When she travels, she brings along masks from 111Skin.
Graham uses Alaffia Black Soap, this unscented liquid soap from Africa that she says helps prevent breakouts and is good before getting a spray tan. She occasionally uses Pure Body Naturals Coconut Milk Body Scrub then slathers on Kiehl's Creme de Corps Body Moisturizer. She adds that while her hair is still wet, she soaks it with John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls for frizz-free, beachy waves. She has also switched to a natural deodorant and uses type:A cream deodorant.
Graham rarely uses foundation because she likes her freckles to show. Instead, she uses Revlon PhotoReady Candid Antioxidant Concealer in Banana and pats it under her eyes, around her nose, on her chin and anywhere there's a blemish. When she does use foundation, she mixes shades 260 and 270 of Revlon PhotoReady Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation. For blush she likes Revlon Insta-Blush and uses Revlon ColorStay Endless Glow in Citrine. Her everyday lippie is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Bare Affair then she finishes off her look with Revlon So Fierce Mascara.
