teen vogue: When did you start taking an interest in skincare or did you actually start caring about your skin?

Jenna Ortega: I was 10 or 11 when I started getting involved in skincare and spending more time in front of the mirror trying to take care of my skin. I had just started acting and I was doing photoshoots or working on a commercial shoot and they were putting foundation or concealer on me, which is kind of crazy to think about because I was so young. I grew up in a family with many women and my mother always stressed the importance of taking care of yourself.

My older sister loves makeup, but she also knew there had to be a balance in terms of, “Okay, well if you’re going to put all this on your face, you also have to make sure you can take it all turned off.” I think I kind of did the big sister, little sister thing with her where I was mimicking her moves and stealing her products. It became something that was always there in my childhood. I I just grew up assuming that doing your skincare, makeup, and self-care routines was as it should be.

TV: I’m a big Neutrogena girl, I love the Hydro Boost Serum. What are your favorite products from the brand?

OJ: It kind of varies. Growing up, I mainly used the pink grapefruit acne face wash. Recently I started using the tenacious texture facial cleanser because it’s a clean slate for me. I’ve recently been working on some jobs that require a lot of blood and dirt and that’s good because it’s an exfoliator so I feel like it really goes in there and I can start my day refreshed and ready to go and kind of start over and focus on the new task at hand. And then I also started using the PM treatment at night just because it really soothes my skin. It doesn’t leave me with a greasy face. I also make sure to incorporate sunscreen regardless of the weather.
