If there's one thing you should know about me, it's my unwavering love for romance movies, specifically teen romantic comedies that hit you right in the feels. So when Netflix's To All the Boys I've Loved Before, starring Lana Condor, came out and dominated the trending list for weeks on end, it also dominated the Friday nights I spent rewatching my favorite scenes with a pint of ice cream and eye masks. But let me make one thing clear: I may have come for the love story, but I stayed for Condor's flawless skin. Condor is the definition of a true multi-hyphenate: She's an actress, producer, YouTuber (her vlogs are top-tier), and skincare enthusiast. Like any movie fanatic, I watched her press interviews for a behind-the-scenes look at the movie. But as a budding beauty fanatic, I truly wanted the inside scoop on the routine that leaves Condor with glowing skin on and off-screen. Luckily for you and me, she did us all a favor and shared her top beauty picks with us.
"I was a dancer when I was younger, so I wore a lot of stage makeup. I always loved playing with makeup and creating different looks that would match my moods or outfits, etc.," says Condor. With age, she has come to realize that true beauty encompasses so much more than appearance and starts from within. To her, beauty is about "taking care of yourself, listening to your instincts, and choosing kindness even when it isn't necessarily easy. We need to take the time to tend to our minds and hearts the same way we wash our faces every night."
And while we can all agree that inner beauty is the most important, there's nothing wrong with giving your skin a little extra love to achieve that lit-from-within glow. When it comes to investing in skin treatments, Condor says that infrared saunas and cryotherapy are worth the splurge. "Sweating out toxins in the sauna has worked magic on my skin, and the tightening anti-inflammatory benefits I get from cryo have been amazing for my skin, too," Condor says. "I also maintain the position that good skin starts with your gut health. I don't believe you need to spend a lot of money on crazy expensive skin treatments. Rather, start with healing your gut. When you care about your gut and start to heal that, your skin is directly affected."
"These gummies are so delicious, and I love taking them before my day starts to help boost my mood!"
"I live for my gua sha. I use it every morning after a long night's sleep, and it really helps de-puff and stimulate blood flow in my face."
"I really like this face wash because it's oil-free, doesn't clog my pores, and is really quick and easy!"
"This is a staple in my skincare routine. I love using this serum after I have exfoliated and cleansed my face before I go to sleep."
"These gummies have quickly become a part of my daily routine. I usually take one or two during lunchtime to help me stay calm and focused."
"These are a great thrifty buy. You can get them at Target. They're long-lasting and so durable!"
"These eye gels are so soothing, and I love using them either in the morning after I wake up or before I go to bed at night."
"I use this device every morning before work in addition to my gua sha. It is so relaxing and really helps in keeping my face firm and smooth."
"I live for these towelettes. They are so calming on the face and have a lavender scent that not only smells amazing but is also incredibly calming."
"I am obsessed with this foundation. It's super light, keeps my skin glowing, and holds really well throughout the day."
"This is a great product for the brows, and I love that it has the brush so I can shape them however I want."
"These little guys are so cute and so hydrating for my under-eye area!"
"I love using this to keep my cuticles healthy."
