In the ever-evolving world of skincare, where complexity often reigns supreme, Athiya Shetty emerges as one of the few with a skincare routine as simple as mine before Instagram reels became a thing. She has the epitome of a lazy girl’s skincare routine i.e. focusing on a few, high performance products instead of a barrage of serums that never seem to end.
In a recent YouTube video, the actor emphasised “….on hydration, and making my skin feel nice, supple and plump.” So we took the liberty and broke down all of the products she uses on a daily basis to look so fresh.
The Beauty of Simplicity
Athiya kicks off her routine with the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, a potion inspired by a royal recipe. This mist is a cocktail of 100% natural-origin ingredients, promising to smooth features, tighten pores, and boost radiance. A backstage staple, it sets makeup for that perfect makeup look while offering a refreshing radiance boost.
Next up, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum takes center stage. “As you can see I’m super tanned and my face is on fire, so this will help with that,“ says Athiya, highlighting the serum’s prowess in correcting dark spots and evening out the complexion. Its star ingredient, viniferine, outshines vitamin C in battling dark spots, making the actor’s skin luminous and even-toned.
For that extra dose of hydration, Athiya turns to Weleda Skin Food Cream. A cult favorite since 1926, this rich cream is the ultimate savior for dry, rough patches. Infused with gentle plant extracts, it transforms skin to appear more luminous and hydrated.
Last, she goes in with the Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics SPF50+ PA++++ which is a chemical sunscreen that’s gentle, quick-absorbing, and leaves no white cast, making it perfect for daily use. Its SPF50+ PA++++ ensures broad-spectrum coverage, keeping her supple skin safe and sound.
To cap off her routine, Athiya adds a touch of hydration to her lips with a bit of lip balm. While she does not mention her exact pick, here’s a pretty good fail safe option. It’s the final step in her simple yet effective skincare ritual, keeping her pout plump and moisturised.
This routine really reminds me of the timeless wisdom of sticking to the basics. In a world constantly chasing the next big thing in beauty, maybe it’s time to tone down the frills and the fuss?
