What Skincare Does Rihanna Use?

Since pregnancy, the beauty mogul has been focusing on hydration. In an interview with Bustle, she opened up about the changes your skin goes through during pregnancy. With all those “dry spells”, she admitted to over-moisturizing and paying more attention to sun protection.

So what moisturizer does Rihanna use? Fenty, obviously. Her go-to night cream is Instant Reset and as for body lotion? She can’t get enough of Butta Drop, a shimmering whipped oil body cream.

Want to get that plump, juicy, dewy look like the Fenty Beauty mogul? Rihanna’s skincare routine isn’t as complicated as you’d think it would be. She proves that you really can’t go wrong as long as you have the basics in check. Here’s everything Rihanna does to keep her skin looking its best.

1. She Deep Cleans with a Double Cleanser

To get her skin squeaky clean, Rihanna favors the double cleansing process. Being the busy babe she is, she speeds up the process by using a two in one cleanser that both removes her makeup and cleans away dirt and oil. 

Rihanna cleanses morning and night using a deeply cleansing yet non-drying formula enriched with ginkgo biloba, Barbados cherry, green tea, and fig. 

Looking for a 2-in-1 cleanser that gets rid of gunk while leaving skin gorgeously smooth, poreless, and glowing? Try Truly’s Glass Skin Cleansing BalmIt gently removes dirt, grime, and makeup without stripping the skin so you get all the cleansing action and none of the dryness.

2. Then, She Pats on Toner

The second step in the Rihanna skincare routine: toner. Her favorite is somewhere between a serum and toner, enriched with niacinamide, green tea, and Barbados cherry. 

She pats it into her skin after cleansing to brighten, tone, and reduce the appearance of pores. In Rihanna’s words, small pores make you look instantly younger and she likes to keep things tight.

Shrink your pores with Truly’s Glass Skin Facial Serum, a refining formula of niacinamide, jojoba oil, and probiotics. It balances, smooths, and blurs large pores.  

3. She Slathers on Moisturizer with SPF

A Rihanna skincare essential: moisturizer with SPF. In a Zoom interview with Glamour Magazine, she said “the biggest misconception with SPF, in particular, is that Black people don’t need it.” They do! And that’s exactly why she takes sunscreen application very seriously.

“You don’t think about the parts of your body that are exposed to the sun, like your hands,” she told Glamour. “Driving your car—on the steering wheel—those are things that age really quickly, but they’re so exposed. SPF is for everyone and every day.”

UV exposure is one of the leading causes of premature aging. To prevent it, wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day and re-apply throughout the day to maintain that protection. 

4. She Hydrates – Inside and Out

Rihanna’s biggest skincare splurge? Moisturizer! She keeps her skin hydrated at all costs, and she’s happy to invest in only the best. Aside from slathering her face and body in nourishing creams, butters, and lotions, Rihanna stays hydrated by drinking copious amounts of water – and coconut water.

When she’s having a bad skin day, she swears by cutting all alcohol and overdoing the water. It restores her gorgeous glow almost instantly. 

To intensely hydrate your skin for hours of RiRi-like radiance, try Truly’s Glazed Donut Facial Glow Cream. Rich, lightweight, and non-greasy, it melts into skin for an instant burst of hydration–with coconut oil, passion fruit, and vitamin E. Your skin will, quite literally, shine bright like a diamond.

5. She Loves Wearing Lip Masks on Long Haul Flights

Rihanna does everything she can to stay hydrated, especially on long flights. Between the different time zones and climates, she goes heavy on hydration to avoid feeling dry. Aside from her regular creams and coconut water, she always brings a lip mask to keep her pout smooth, plump, and full.

Rihanna's fave lip mask, Plush Puddin, contains a slew of nourishing, plumping ingredients like coconut oil, jojoba oil, pomegranate, and vitamin E. 

For instantly juicy, extra luscious lips, apply Truly's Unicorn Fruit Lip Plumping Balm, a whipped, minty butter made with shea butter, coconut oil, and peppermint for your plumpest pout. Think soft, luscious, kissable lips.

6. She Gets the “Wet Look” with Facial Mists 

With regards to Rihanna skincare tips, she archives that highly desired “wet look” with a combination of facial mists. Because they drench skin in moisture, they instantly give skin a dreamy dewy look.

When it comes to choosing the right mist to get Rihanna’s look, select products with moisture-locking ingredients like hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and glycerin. Spray it on throughout the day to boost your dew!

How to Get Rihanna’s Look

Here’s how to get Rihanna’s head to toe glow. From whipped body butters to silky facial serums and firming scrubs, we’ve got everything you need to get firm, smooth, and dewy like Queen Ri.

A fundamental part of the Rihanna skincare routine is keeping skin clean and hydrated. When skin is clean, pores become less visible and your complexion appears younger. When skin is hydrated, you instantly look plumper and fresher. Not to mention makeup glides on much better when skin is properly cleansed and moisturized.

Truly’s Glass Skin Set features a 2-in-1 cleansing balm + facial serum formulated with niacinamide, jojoba oil, and probiotics. Together, they help to melt away dirt and impurities, refine pores, and give skin a healthy glow.
