Ariana Grande is no stranger when it comes to the limelight and the singer never fails to showcase her beauty.

Making her debut at the Oscars this year, Grande displayed her signature beauty look of a sleek cat eye, tight ponytail, and natural but effective glam.

Grande’s skin is undeniably flawless, but how does she achieve the perfect natural glow?

In a previous interview, Grande stated that her skincare routine takes just five minutes if she does it properly and doesn’t cost a fortune. Experts at beauty and wellness marketplace Fresha, have researched Ariana Grande’s skincare routine and provided tips on achieving her gorgeous complexion in five simple steps.

Step 1 – Skin Cleanse

Cleansing your skin is a key step in Ariana’s routine as it helps keep the skin fresh and prevent blemishes. It is probably overlooked in most skin routines as scrubbing your face can be tedious and seem pointless, yet a simple scrub can help keep your skin clear. A study from Practical Dermatology demonstrates the positive effects a proper cleanse can have on the skin, including removing harmful bacteria that can cause blemishes and breakouts.

Grande has previously stated that washing her face is just as important as applying products to her skin. The pop singer uses anything from a chemical exfoliant to a face scrub to ensure her skin is well-exfoliated and impurities like blackheads and dead skin cells are removed before the next application step.

Step 2 – Face Serum

Ariana always applies a simple, lightweight serum as the base of her skincare routine for a healthy glow. Grande has revealed that she always used a biocell cleanser to transform the texture of her skin so it is smooth and soft.

These face serums are typically water-based and gel or liquid to make application easy and hydrate the face. Most face serums contain vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol, which have many skin benefits such as reduced lines, fewer wrinkles, and suitability for sensitive/acne-prone skin.

Step 3 – Moisturiser and SPF

A lightweight serum is great for hydration but to prevent the skin from drying out after a deep cleanse, moisturiser helps maintain natural oils and brighten skin tone. By strengthening the skin moisture barrier, Grande’s skin radiates a natural dewy appearance and protects the skin from drying.

Grande swears by mixing SPF into her moisturiser for the ultimate UV protection. A study by PubMed Central extensively researched the importance of SPF and its great contribution to skin protection. It helps prevent the skin coming into direct contact with harmful UVA and UVB rays that can cause skin damage. In addition, it helps reduce signs of aging by protecting the skin cells that prevent the appearance of sagging and skin discoloration.

Step 4 – Undereye Cooling Balm

The next step in Grande’s skincare routine is undereye cooling balm. She claims to she love the refreshing and energizing effect it has under her eyes and typically keeps it in her fridge with a face roller. It is greatly beneficial in preventing bags around the eyes and helps reduce aging in wrinkle-prone areas. The cooling balm also has a dual purpose and can be worn over make-up as a highlighter to complete a glowing finish.

Step 5 – Eye Mask

It is clear Grande is keen on looking after her under eyes. She will keep under-eye masks on for between 15 minutes to four hours, depending on how quickly she needs to get ready. These masks help prevent under-eye wrinkles and soothe her skin before applying makeup.

Step 6 – Coconut Oil

Grande uses coconut oil all over her face and body to help prevent dry skin. It helps combat skin conditions from dermatitis to eczema and can soothe any inflammation that may occur on your face. You commonly touch your face throughout the day, spreading harmful bacteria into your pores. Coconut oil works as an antiviral and antifungal barrier to help prevent any unwanted bacteria that could lead to breakouts and imperfections.

A spokesperson from Fresha commented on the findings:

“Ariana Grande’s consistently flawless appearance is so much simpler than you’d think. All products included in her routine are affordable and accessible but remain extremely effective. Her eye-catching beauty all stems from her skincare and creates the perfect base for her simplistic make-up look. Without a successful skincare routine, it would make achieving the ideal beauty look that much harder”.
