If, like us, you've spent a lot of time feeling desperate to learn Lizzo's skincare routine, we don't blame you. The star has a serious glow, whether that's on the red carpet or in an Instagram selfie, and we'd love a slice of it for ourselves. 

Luckily, we don't need to wonder any longer, as Lizzo has shared some of her skincare faves over the years. Like us, she loves cult brands like Sunday Riley and Peter Thomas Roth and knows that staying hydrated is key. Keep reading for everything we know about her skincare regime...

What is Lizzo's skincare routine?

Lizzo previously shared her skincare routine in an interview with The New York Times, and it's mostly Sunday Riley and a lot of water (hydration is key, folks). She has also mentioned drinking a "gallon of water a day" on Instagram.

"I believe in water first thing. Water is really important for face and hair," she told the publication in 2019. "I go to the bathroom and, believe or not, hit myself with some Evian spray to the face."

The singer also shared that she used to commit the skincare sin of sleeping in her make-up, until her skin gave her a wake up call and became extremely irritated. "I went through skin rehab. Listen, I was in face masks – the Peter Thomas Roth green tea face mask, literally every night. It was really scary. I thought my skin would never come back.

"I told my makeup artist, Alexx Mayo: I really have to get serious about my skin care, and he introduced me to the Sunday Riley products.

"I have the C.E.O. Glow oil – it’s so sick. There’s vitamin C and turmeric in it. I’m obsessed with the way vitamin C smells – like oranges."

Meanwhile at night time, Lizzo said she uses the brand's Ceramic Slip Cleanser. "I have the whole Sunday Riley system now," she added. "I don’t mix systems. I would mix if I felt like it, but if it works for me, I don’t mess with it."
