Stars, they're just like us. That phrase has possibly never rung truer than when Lizzo posted a TikTok video recently urging fans to "get unready with her." In the video, Lizzo explained that her skin has been irritated while she's been on tour. "I have extremely sensitive skin, so if I have scented soaps—and I accidentally used scented soap at one of the hotels—it will break me out and make me itchy," the singer shared in the video.

"There's nothing wrong with having texture on your skin," Lizzo said. "My problem is the issue is the itchiness that's been happening and the irritation."

To start her ultra-gentle skincare routine, Lizzo reached for Cetaphil's Gentle Skin Cleanser. "This is what my makeup artist recommended to wash my face with," she shared. Using a few pumps, Lizzo not only lathered her face with the cleanser, but she also spread some on her chest to calm irritation there too. 

Next, Lizzo spread a thin layer of First Aid Beauty's Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask all over her skin, rubbing it in until it absorbed. Arnica helps soothe and speed up skin healing. 

For the final step of her skincare routine, the singer applied the Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Serum Mask to soothe and moisturize. Tiger grass helps calm irritation and redness, so it's the perfect ingredient to mix into an irritation-reducing skincare routine. In a follow-up TikTok, she also shared that she's been using a satin pillowcase lately to help curb dryness.
