Supermodel Paulina Porizkova has been getting real on Instagram since the start of COVID. From sharing makeup-free selfies to updates on her Ultherapy and plasma pen recovery, the former NewBeauty cover star has been letting her fans in on her day-to-day life—and today is no different. In her latest post, the 55-year-old beauty is giving us the scoop on her daily skin-care routine—and it’s refreshingly simple.
Bare-faced and glowing, Porizkova begins by saying she’s been getting a lot of questions about her skin-care routine and makeup tricks for 55-year-old skin. “So I shall share everything with you, and I mean everything,” she says. But in this case, “everything” only means four products.
“Since my face didn’t do any hard work to get itself dirty [during the night], I just put on moisturizer in the morning because my skin is kind of on the dry side, which is also why I avoid water when I can,” explains Porizkova. The first cream she introduces is the Peter Thomas Roth Vital-E Microbiome Age Defense Cream ($75), adding that microbiome creams are the “hot new trend in cosmetics and skin treatments because they’re all about fostering the good bacteria on the skin.” The potent cream is also powered by a gamma E antioxidant technology, which blocks blue light and other environmental aggressors from harming the dermis.
In-between announcing her other favorite a.m. moisturizer, the model slips in a note about her cleansing schedule: “Unless I’ve been wearing makeup, sweating or doing incredibly dirty facial work, I don’t tend to cleanse my face at night.” But when she needs that extra-deep clean, she reaches for the Beauty Pie Pure Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser ($35) in her vanity drawer, the perfect product for taking off the day sans any signs of stripping.
“One of my other favorite products is the Beauty Pie Japanfusion Hydra Prep Lotion ($35). It’s not really a toner, it’s a moisture accelerator. In the morning, before I apply my Peter Thomas Roth cream, I usually splash on a little bit of this because it makes the moisturizer go in even better. Sometimes I just use this because it’s moisturizing on its own.” The A-lister also adds that she’ll use this product on the nights that she uses a cleanser.
After those two steps, Porizkova goes in with what she pins as her “all-time favorite moisturizer:” Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream ($100). “I have a little bit of an issue with ‘anti-aging’ because I don’t actually mind aging, I just want to age well. This cream says that it lifts, firms and plumps. And you know what, it actually does do that in a small way. Out of all the creams I’ve ever used, this one does the best job of making your skin feel a little firmer and a little bouncier.”
