Billie Eilish reveals her 'rejuvenating' skincare routine, says it makes her 'feel like a person'
While those 'Ocean Eyes' are undoubtedly a gift to her, but a spotless skin? That comes at a cost! Billie Eilish, 20, recently shared the stepwise skincare regimen that helps her "feel like a person" and find peace. This nighttime routine entailed various products that included makeup removal, hydration, and moisturization to make her skin flawless like it is. This 11-minute video for Vogue also features the seven-time Grammy award winner talking about her favourite brands and how she started paying particular attention to her skin.
The candid video was shot right after one of her jampacked performances as part of her ongoing world tour for 'Happier Than Ever'. The star always does her makeup and started her regimen by tucking her hair back in a band she got off Amazon. She then wipes off her makeup with Josie Maran Bear Naked wipes that she specifies "totally vegan and cruelty-free". Eilish has always been a vocal activist promoting veganism and ensuring she uses and creates cruelty-free products.
Eilish revealed that she started following a strict routine at age 12 when her brother, Finneas O’Connell, who had some "bad skin years" himself, asked her to take care of it. The two siblings started using over-the-counter products, which changed when she was recommended Biba de Sousa. She credited her skin to the facialist and said she had had a "complete transformation" since she started using her products. She also did away with using dairy and gluten products which made her skin better. Calling her skincare routine "rejuvenating", she proceeded to show a couple of extraction tools for her acne.
Eilish jokes about being very rough with her face while washing it as she uses the Biba de Sousa Mandelic Cleansing Gel right after her zinc and sulphur mask. It is interesting to note how the 'Bad Guy' star has made careful adjustments to her lifestyle to be as environment-friendly as she can be. Her wipe-off pads are reusable and washable too! The routine continued with Biba de Sousa Glycolic Lactic Toner and the daily moisturizer in adequate amounts. The "life-changing" cream barrier appears to be her absolute favorite which she uses almost always.
Biba de Sousa's hydrating toner is the final product in her skincare routine. She concludes her regimen with an Olaplex No. 6 for her hair to give it more volume and Aquaphor Healing Ointment for her lips to remain soft and nourished. She also added, “Taking care of your skin is so, so important just as a person; there is no gender to it.”
Currently, on her world tour, the 20-year-old has seen it all. Her single, 'Happier than Ever', rocked the worldwide charts much like all its predecessors. Her two albums have resonated with the youth, and she has time and again gained critical acclaim for her unique voice. She has credited singers like Aurora, Justin Bieber, The Beatles, Green Day, Linkin Park, and the likes as her idols.
