Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize...

A solid moisturizer is the cornerstone of Markle's regime. She has waxed lyrical about her love for Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum. When she was interviewed by BeautyBanter, she shared, "I've been going to Kate's clinic in LA for facials for years...and use the products to maintain that glow that her facials give."

Makeup artist Min Min Ma, who worked with Markle when she starred on Suits, has said that Decleor's ultra-calming, rose-infused Aromessence Rose D'Orient Soothing Serum was also essential for creating a smooth canvas before applying the star's base.

Regular exfoliation is key to softer skin

Markle also knows that you cannot have polished skin unless you exfoliate. “I really love the Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder. It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation,” Meghan told Allure in 2014.

Chapped lips are a clear turn off, too, and Markle has made it very clear that she really loves the ultra-nourishing Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment with sea fennel and orange extract —like, A LOT. “I have searched high and low and tried every kind of lip balm, but this is the very best,” Markle said about this soothing formula in an interview with The Lady Loves Couture. “Soft, kissable, buttery lips. I swear by it."

Don't forget to moisturize from the neck down

And knowing that skincare doesn't stop at the jawline, Markle applies Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion from the neck down. “I use this religiously; it’s honestly my favorite lotion on the market,” Markle told Beauty Banter. “It’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it." 

According to the brand, this lotion is proven to tighten and firm the skin in just two weeks.

Not to sound too fan-girly, but how refreshing to have a Royal-approved mix of high end and drugstore beauty staples.
