Ryan Destiny takes great care of her skin – something that’s visible from its glowing appearance. The actress/singer swears by her simple skincare routine when it comes to keeping her face looking fresh and vibrant. As an entertainer and model, the “Star” actress finds that she regularly has to put on makeup – as such, she uses her skin care regimen to make sure that the base (her skin) is always ready.
As the first celebrity ambassador of Black Opal, Destiny emphasizes her preference for a sensitive skin-friendly, fragrance-free and clean skincare routine. Read on to find out how the “Grown-ish” star keeps her skin looking awesome all the time.
Destiny starts her day early – waking up by 6 or 7 am. She uses the gentle cleanser from Cetaphil to kick-start her morning skincare routine. The singer-actress loves how the product serves two purposes, cleansing and hydrating the skin. Speaking to The Cut, the singer said that her skin does best when she uses simple products, “with no extra fragrances or added alcohols.”
Afterward, she layers on a Derm King (a Beverly Hills dermatologist who she also sees for all her skin care needs) formulated Vitamin C serum. To give skin a healthy glow and keep it hydrated, the serum contains a blend of antioxidants and Vitamins. The actress completes her 3-step skincare routine by moisturizing with La Roche-Posay. The product repairs and hydrates skin thanks to its niacinamide blend.
When night comes, Destiny likes to crank things up by using more active products instead of the gentler daytime options. She starts by clearing pores and exfoliating her skin using an aesthetician-made medical-grade product. Its high glycolic acid content helps clear away impurities before she goes to bed.
She uses a prescribed retinol after applying the cleanser, about two to three nights a week. She also uses a moisturizer designed for sensitive skin to keep her skin hydrated and ensure that it is plump when she wakes up.
Dealing With Blemishes
It is always hard to spot any blemishes on Destiny’s face. While it's easy to think that she never gets any pimples, it wouldn't be further from the truth. Her blemish-free skin is the product of a refined and perfectly executed skincare routine. The singer-actress swears on the power of her chosen Mario Badescu product when it comes to dealing with pimples and preventing the formation of unsightly skin blemishes – Destiny told Teen Vogue, “It’s the spot treatment.”
She says that she always turns to the product whenever she sees an existing pimple or feels one coming on. The singer stated in the interview that she normally goes to sleep with a face full of tiny spots! The spot treatment contains calamine, sulfur and salicylic acid. To rid your face of any blemishes/pimples, the product acts like a drying lotion, hardening immediately after application over the affected area – hence the spotty face at bedtime. As a spot treatment, the product is designed to be used overnight.
