Lana Condor ditches her skincare routine
Work hard, take care of yourself harder. It’s not how they say, but if it was up to Lana Condor, who has certainly worked hard since her decisive role in Netflix To all the boys I’ve loved before– we should all prioritize our mental health. âIn the past year, if we’ve learned anything, we first need to take care of ourselves and our brains before we can be good at whatever we do in our lives,â Condor said. Charm. “Beauty starts from within, and if you’re not good on the inside, thenâ¦ what’s the point?” “
The actor is teaming up with Victoria’s Secret Pink this holiday season to help highlight the importance of mental health and self-care. In partnership with the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes emotional health and teen suicide prevention in the United States, Pink and Condor are helping provide mental health resources to those in need. âPress Pause is an awesome website that has a lot of really fast and effective tools you can use for your mental health,â Condor says. âThere are some great, effective and practical tools that can help you prepare for the holidays, of course, but also for life.
A homebody at heart, Condor is all about personal care. She’s officially in “cozy fashion” for the holidays, wearing matching tracksuits and indulging in her favorite skincare products after a busy year of filming. âI work full time and just finished a show,â says Condor. âThe products I use are stronger and more, dare I say it, aggressive, mainly because I know they work. Due to their busy schedule, Condor values ââefficiency and convenience when choosing products for their combination skin. âWhen I work a ton, my skin feels dry. However, I believe that the health of your skin starts from the inside out. When I am stressed or if I am not eating healthy, obviously I have a blast. So I think it has to do with the interior first.
So what makes Condor feel beautiful inside and out? Read on for her essentials in another episode of Drop the Routine.
Currently, I use the iS Clinical Cleansing Complex. I like it because it’s sturdy and it gets the job done. I can fall asleep faster.
I will use witch hazel if I really need it, but it is not part of my daily routine.
IS Clinical Advanced Pro-Heal Serum is my baby. I realize now that a lot of my answers were impractical and quick, but I really think this is a very convenient serum. It does the trick quickly, and it hasn’t let me down. It keeps my skin clear, keeps the pores tight and keeps the skin fresh.
I have been an avid user of Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer. It’s a classic. It has never failed me. When I work I tend to lean on the dry side. It’s like drinking a glass of water. You can find it anywhere, which I really like because I’m always on the move. I often forget to pack certain things, and you can always find Neutrogena products anywhere. I take a huge ball and apply it to my skin.
My eye cream
At the moment, I am using La Mer The Eye concentrate. It’s a product that I use that is luxurious, and I really love it. It comes with a little tool where you just take a drop of it and use this cooling tool to put it in front of your eyes. I only use a small amount because it absorbs directly. Another great product that I use every day when working out is Skyn ââIceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, which are great under-eye masks. It helps a lot with dark circles. It helps a lot to look tired.
My face mask
Neutrogena is my reference. Sometimes I use the Talika Bubble Mask Bio-Detox if I feel that there are a lot of toxins that I am trying to remove from my skin, but most of the time I use Neutrogena. The masks are so luxurious and make me feel like a queen, but it really helps my skin.
My localized treatments
Mario Badescu drying lotion. You just do a spot treatment, and it dries up any rash you have. This one is awesome and hasn’t let me down. It’s always with me.
My face oil
This is a new find that I have only been using for six months, but Alo has come out with skin care. I was shopping in their store, and I’m kind of like a salesperson’s dream. If you tell me anything, I’m ready to try it. So I bought their Glow System Head-to-Toe Glow Oil, which you can also use for your nails, skin, hair, etc. It’s a great product. I really loved it.
My face mist
IS Clinical Copper Firming Mist is highly hydrating and instantly refreshes the face. Especially if you’ve been in Zoom meetings all day or, in my case, been in front of tons of lights. It really helps.
I use Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense. They have a serum that is amazing. I like him because he doesn’t have a white cast which is important to me. And it smells good. It’s handy sometimes if I’m really, really lazy which is usually everyday, then I’ll use their Invisible Daily Defense Sun Mist.
My lip balm
Vaseline. You can not be wrong. It doesn’t let you down. I have very dry lips. So I just need some heavy stuff on this. A bathtub will last you forever, and you can find it everywhere.
I use NuFace a ton. They have this great tool that helps tighten fine lines, age, and firm up. I gua sha every day. If you come across any gua sha videos on social media it might seem intimidating, but it’s worth learning the ways as it really helps firm, brighten, and tighten. But it’s also a great facial massage that gets you ready for the day. You also feel like you are taking care of yourself. You deserve to be pampered!
