We’ve all seen Mrs Bieber flaunt her flawless skin on social media, looking like your typical Krispy Kreme’s glazed donut thanks to her elaborate skincare routines, which premiered on her YouTube channel this year. Now, my sudden postpartum outbreak could certainly use some guidance to get my skin back on track, but is following Hailey’s routine a reasonable option? Read on to find out everything right and wrong with her bedtime ritual for glowing skin.
Hailey’s transparent and outspoken approach to skincare is rather refreshing. She regularly talks to her millions of followers on social media, sharing beauty tips, tricks, and must-haves. Her in-depth skincare routines on YouTube are informative and aesthetically pleasing to watch, offering personal demonstrations, such as her layering techniques to create that dewy, hydrated base. She also has good habits and wholehearted dedication when it comes to skincare, like always removing her makeup before bed and doing her own ingredient research. During the lockdown, she studied skincare components by taking up dermatology courses and reading skincare books to gain insight. Though she appears to have skin made of poreless perfection, she’s also honest about her skin concerns, like perioral dermatitis – a skin condition that causes inflammation when triggered by things like laundry detergent.
But the issue is, everyone’s skin is different. Aside from her occasional skin triggers, Hailey’s skin is naturally clear, which she attributes to her parents having great, youthful-looking skin. However, some of us aren’t so genetically blessed and have other skin concerns to consider. Hailey’s nighttime routine may be best for her skin type only, which is on the dry, sensitive side, so piling on the exact same products before bed may not give you the results you want if, like me, you’ve got oily or combination skin. There are also a few quirks in her routine, like applying spot treatment after face oil, which technically should be applied onto dry skin before any oils so it’s easier to penetrate. Her nightly skincare collection isn’t so cheap either, costing roughly 1800 dhs, so it may not be an option for the frugal-minded.
Hailey’s A-list skincare routine is well-researched and carefully curated, though it’s a routine to be followed with caution. She certainly knows her stuff when it comes to her skin type, and no one can deny that utterly radiant complexion. But just like Hailey, it’s best to study your skin type, and bank account, to determine whether reaching her glazed donut standard is attainable.
