Here Are the Exact Skincare Products Kelly Ripa Uses to Look So Damn Good
Whether we’re talking her incredibly toned arms or her chic mid-century modern home decor, pretty much everything about Kelly Ripa impresses us. Including her complexion, which somehow looks almost exactly the same as it did 20 years ago. (Seriously, does this woman not age?) And lucky for us, the talk show host isn’t shy about sharing the skincare secrets that keep her skin looking so great. Here, six of the products she uses to look so damn good.
1. Uma Oils Absolute Anti-Aging Face Oil
“I guess this is my anti-aging secret—this and Botox, if we’re being honest,” Ripa told The Strategist. “It’s pricey but worth it.” The former All My Children star applies this blend of frankincense, juniper berry and sandalwood essential oils every morning and evening to keep her skin hydrated.
2. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 60
Perhaps the explanation for Ripa’s lack of age spots? She wears sunscreen religiously. “I even wear it indoors as well,” she told Prevention. This lightweight, fragrance-free formula is Ripa’s favorite. Reviewers say it blends easily and doesn’t leave behind a white cast, so we can see why she’s a fan.
3. Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar
The Live host also swears by facial massage to keep her complexion looking its best. She puts this Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar plus her jade roller and two rose quartz face rollers in a bowl of ice before using them, she told Prevention. While all four tools stimulate lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness, the 24-karat gold vibrating bar works to make the skin appear more lifted and toned.
4. Dove Beauty Bar
Not all of Ripa’s skincare favorites are high-end. “Even if I’m staying in the most luxurious hotel that gives you all the fancy soaps and shampoos, I bring my own bar of Dove soap. It just sets my mind right. It’s the best,” she told The Strategist. We can’t argue with that.
5. Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush
OK, so Ripa hasn’t named the exact dry brush she uses first thing in the morning, but we imagine it’s pretty similar to this one. The cactus fiber bristles are designed to slough away dead skin cells while also increasing circulation and helping to eliminate cellulite. “I do a good vigorous brush of my entire body. I brush up towards my heart and down towards my hands,” she explained to Prevention.
6. Alcone Company Make-Off Makeup Remover Cloths
Ripa told The Strategist these gentle makeup remover wipes are her all-time favorite. “You don’t have to scrub your skin to get the makeup off, and they don’t leave your skin feeling greasy either,” she said.
