What skincare does Lucy Liu use?
There's one drugstore skincare buy in particular that Lucy Liu uses for absolutely everything; household name Aquaphor.
"I call it Aqua-for-everything," she told New York Magazine. "You can put some on your face during the winter, or on your chapped lips at any time. It’s nice for a baby’s bottom if you’re a parent, or on cuts and bruises to help heal. For glam, we use it in the make-up bag to help moisturize."
Another staple in Liu's skincare regime is the Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. "This cream was developed by a Japanese pharmacist – it’s great for when I’m outside shooting and my skin’s feeling a little dry," she added. "I find a lot of lotions to be overly scented, but this one’s just perfect. It’s become my go-to moisturizer for just about anything."
While many A-listers opt for an extravagant evening skincare routine, Lucy Liu keeps things very simple before bed. "I used to do a lot of different things, but now I put coconut oil and Avène cream on my face and call it a night," she told E!.
It just goes to show that there's no need to have a seven-step skincare routine if it's not your thing. How many of Lucy's go-to products are already part of your skincare routine?
