Kristin Chenoweth Swears by This Ultra-Moisturizing $5 Drugstore Beauty Find


Tony Award-winning Broadway legend and First for Women cover star Kristin Chenoweth never stops moving. Between an upcoming Christmas album, numerous film productions, and tons of other projects in the works, the leading lady knows how to keep busy. Having performed night after night for many years though, we needed to know how she keeps her skin healthy and glowing? The secret is simple — and all it takes is a trip to your local drugstore!

When it comes to her skincare, Chenoweth loves ultra-moisturizing products above all else, and she says you don’t have to break the bank to see results. “I have really dry skin, and I don’t think that fancy products want us to know about [drugstore ones], because I think they really work,” she explains to First for Women. Her major go-to? Chenoweth doesn’t even skip a beat: Nivea Shimmer Lip Stick Care (Buy on Amazon, $5.13) has been a mainstay of hers for years. (“I’m not getting paid by them!” she jokes.) Its jojoba oil and shea butter formula naturally soothes and hydrates lips, and the subtle pink shimmer adds a little color that traditional chapsticks don’t.

Another brand that gets major points from Chenoweth is Bio Oil. Its Skincare Oil (Buy on Amazon, $14.99) has a cult following, and it’s easy to see why. With ingredients like sunflower oil, chamomile oil, vitamins A and E, and lavender oil, it fights inflammation, hydrates drying skin, and smoothes uneven skin tones.

As for how she likes to use her various moisturizers and similar products, Chenoweth is a big fan of an age-old overnight beauty hack. “If you really want soft hands and feet, get the thickest moisturizing lotion and put it on your feet and hands and wear socks and gloves at night,” she explains. “When you wake up, guess what? Your hands and feet are moisturized.” Glad to know such a beloved trick is Kristin Chenoweth approved!
