No one is immune to the harsh reality that is winter skin — even Priyanka Chopra. The former Miss World recently shared her secret weapon for keeping a dry, cracked complexion at bay, even in the coldest of weather — and it’s one you can pick up right now for less than $100.
As the Quantico alum explained to InStyle last month, she takes advantage of her nights off by treating her visage to a good, healthy dose of Obagi Hydrate Luxe night cream ($74, Dermstore) whenever she can.
“Self-care is extremely important to me and something I always make time for,” she told the publication. “Especially skincare — we spend so much time on makeup and clothes, but I feel best when my skin is glowing and I barely need any makeup.”
To ensure she’s got that megawatt shine, Chopra said she spends her nights at home slathered in “a really thick face cream, like Obagi Hydrate Luxe. … [I] leave it on as a mask for about 20 minutes.”
While it can be applied in the morning, it’s designed for bedtime, as it works with your skin overnight to hydrate and replenish. It’s peppered with shea butter to soften and moisturize, peptides, which mimic naturally-occurring peptides in the skin to form a protective barrier, seal moisture in, and support cell repair processes, and a hydrating technology called hydromanil, that further locks in hydration.
Better yet, it works for a wide variety of skin types and tones from the sensitive to the very dry
Wrote one user, “Very rich texture and condensed. Good for dry skin and dry weather. I have sensitive skin and have been using it for a week. No reaction yet. I think it’s pretty gentle and safe.”
Another concurred, “This is an amazing night cream. Very good for sensitive skin and very nourishing. I usually wake up even from thick night creams with dryness around my mouth from acne cream that goes underneath. This keeps me moisturized all night.”
Chopra swears by their products, but she decided to get involved in the company’s Skinclusion campaign, which aims to tear down society’s biases about beauty standards, because of the brand’s inclusivity. “People used to say to me, ‘You don’t look Indian.’ Well, how do you know what an Indian person is supposed to look like?” she asked. “When I was younger, these comments made me question where I fit in. But I don’t question myself anymore. When I walk out the door in the morning, it’s like a switch flips on and I can just grab the day and take the bull by the horns.”
Of course, having beautiful skin from head to toe definitely helps, and lucky for us, Chopra was also willing to spill her trick for getting the rest of her body silky-smooth.
“I exfoliate my body at least twice a month,” she shared. “I spend five minutes buffing my skin with a loofah in the shower, then afterward, I blend a hydrating oil, like argan oil, with body lotion and really go to town massaging the mix into my skin. If you do this routine a few times a month, it keeps your body supple and smooth.”
