Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is someone who looks absolutely stunning both on and off screen, with the most gorgeous brown girl complexion owing to her Sri Lankan roots. So what does Maitreyi do for her glow? Luckily, the young star doesn’t gatekeep.
She revealed her simple and effective CTM skincare routine which is perfect for every teenager looking to begin their skincare journey.
In an interview, Maitreyi said, “If it’s a normal night, then I probably don’t have makeup on because I try not to use too much makeup day after day, because I don’t want to break out.” This is an important thing to note because wearing too much makeup for long hours can clog your pores and lead to breakouts.
She also said that sometimes she does have makeup on and, “I absolutely hate myself if I fall asleep with my makeup on, which admittedly has happened before. I think I have done that more in quarantine than I have in my entire life. I go in with my Neutrogena face wipes—I really like those. They really work, and they’re nice. ”
These face wipes are something that many celebs including Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande swear by. The Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes is one of the best for makeup removal.
C For Cleanser
To not overcomplicate or be harsh on her skin, Maitreyi uses a simple nourishing face wash after removing her makeup to cleanse her skin and begin her skin routine.
She said, “I keep it pretty simple when I wash my face. I just use water—good old water—and some regular Olay face soap. It works for me.”
Maitreyi didn’t reveal the exact Olay face wash she uses but the Olay Luminous Cleanser – With Glycerin – All Skin Types is a great pick for glowing skin.
T For Toner
Maitreyi believes toners also help in cleansing her skin. “I finish up with some toner and whatnot. That’s pretty much it for cleaning off my face,” she said. Toners are great for ensuring no bacteria remains behind in pores. It also balances the skin’s pH levels which is important to maintain healthy and clear skin.
A good alcohol-free toner to use after cleansing with a face wash is the St. Botanica Australian Tea Tree Anti Acne Face Toner because it does not dry out the skin and it also prevents breakouts.
M For Moisturiser
Maitreyi’s final step in her skincare routine is moisturising and every girl should do it no matter what skin type. She believes a vitamin E-infused face cream works best for skin and it is indeed amazing.
Maitreyi said, “I do always try to use some vitamin E cream at the end of the night, just to keep it hydrated, because we don’t like that dry skin. You gotta keep moisturised.”
Maybe Maitreyi uses a vitamin E cream because she lives in a cold country like Canada, but vitamin E creams can be lightweight and summer-friendly too. The Simple Water Boost Hydrating Gel Creme 100 HR Hydration has a light gel texture that does not make the skin look greasy at all.
