Celebrities have been posting a lot of makeup-free selfies on Instagram lately, and one of the most radiant faces belongs to Jada Pinkett Smith, 49. The Red Talk Table host posted a video on her YouTube channeland shared her skin care routine that keeps her looking radiant and youthful. Pinkett Smith shares that her skin type is normal but can also get dry and adds that her T-zone, like most people, gets oily. She also reveals that she only goes for professional treatments once or twice a year and really makes the effort of taking care of her skin at home.
Here are some of her regular skin care practices that you can try at home.
Prevention reports that Pinkett Smith's biggest skin care secret is steaming, and she does it three to four times a week. She doesn't even have fancy equipment. Jada simply uses a bowl and pours hot water in it. She then puts her face over the bowl and covers her head with a towel for a few minutes to open the pores for her next cleansing step. For a more relaxing experience, you can even add essential oils to your hot water.
After her steaming session, Jada washes her face with Japanese cult favorite Tatcha Deep Cleanser, a very popular facial cleanser among celebrities. She mentions in her video that while it's a deep cleanser, it's also very gentle. She steams for a second time then uses Dermalogica Precleanse Cleansing Oil that has vitamin E, rice bran, and rosemary.

After her cleansing oil, she uses a microdermabrasion tool, the KENDAL Professional Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine HB-SF01, to remove dead skin cells off her face. For this step, she recommends using an exfoliating towel to get the same (almost) results. After the microdermabrasion, she cleanses again with Burt's Bees Baby Shampoo and wash but sticks to the eye area and her eyebrows. Once again, it's back to steaming for her final cleansing step.
Her last cleansing step involves Neutrogena Clear Pore Clay Mask, which she raves about. After that pore-cleansing mask, she makes a homemade mask with one avocado, one tablespoon of honey, and two teaspoons of olive oil. She applies it with a brush and leaves it on for 20 minutes. On some days when she needs extra hydration, she reaches for a Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask.
While Jada has access and enjoys top of the line skincare products, her favorite toner is Clean & Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent.
Like many skincare enthusiasts, Jade is a fan of retinol and hyaluronic acid. Her go-to products are Proderma Light 2.5% Retinol Face Serum and Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Ampoules. She also stresses the importance of sun protection and adds that she also wears a lot of hats. And the best ingredient of all? Water. Women's Health writes that Jada drinks up to 12 bottles of water every day. She rarely drinks juice, alcohol, or wine and does not drink soda.
