    Taking care of your skin is something that is really important for your personal wellbeing but can also help you look and feel great.

    Good skin is not something that everyone prioritises, but when it comes to celebrities it certainly is. Many celebs lead very busy lives, meaning taking some time to unwind and relax is important, and skincare is a great way to do just that!

    The cost of the celebrity skincare routine

    We have analysed YouTube skincare routine videos showing products that 12 celebrity skincare lovers use, to find out how much each spends on skincare products alone. Skincare is not just something that women champion, many male celebrities have created video content around how they keep their skin clear and why it is so important to them.

    So which celebrities have the highest priced skincare routine, and which products are raking up the pounds?

    Singer Sam Smith and model Ellie Goldstein have the easiest skincare routines, with both only using five products each. Despite Sam Smith’s routine coming in as the second most expensive, it is also one of the easiest. Ellie Goldstein uses a mixture of face wash and creams, notably the Avant Deluxe Hyaluronic Acid Vivifying Face & Eye Night Cream.


    Following these two celebrities are singers Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys, who use just 6 products in their skincare routine. Pharrell is a huge fan of skincare, which is why many of the products he uses are from his own skincare range Humanrace, including an exfoliator, cleanser, and humidifying cream. He also uses Chanel Rouge Coco Baume and two products from ISDIN.

    Alicia Keys is certainly a fan of rose flavoured products. She uses Smith's rosebud salve lip balm; Epicuren rosemary lave and rose water body mist. She also uses a detox cleanser; anti-blemish lotion and eye roll on.

    Complex skincare routines

    American actress Liza Koshy has the most complex routine when it comes to skincare, using a total of 10 products. This routine is all about making time for yourself, taking around 15 minutes this isn’t something you shouldn’t rush.

     

     

    A brand that makes a regular appearance in her collection is C’est Moi. In fact, seven of the 10 products are from this brand, including a face mask, lotions, cleansing water and wipes, and pads. Other products in her collection include Biossance Squalane + vitamin C rose oil, Dr. Bronner's 4-In-1 lavender soap and Sara Happ lip scrub.
