When it comes to her skincare routine, Olivia Palermo doesn't play around. "Taking care of my skin is something that was instilled in me from a young age by my mother and my aunt," she tells us. "They're both very diligent about their routine, and I don't think anything I did in my early teens or 20s into now has changed so much." She takes a very inside-out approach to her regimen, making sure to drink tons of water and sticking to a healthy, skin-friendly diet. "My mother also taught me to keep my skin out of the sun. A little is OK, but not too much, and always to wear a sun hat or SPF," she adds.
When it comes to her favorite products, Palermo credits her Clarisonic Mia Fit ($189; sephora.com) as a staple. "After I'm out of the shower, my skin is still clean and wet, so I dampen the bristles, apply the cleanser to my face, then go over it with the brush," she tells us. "I feel like it really helps me take off the day, especially when my pores are congested." Since she uses the tool every day, she favors the softer cashmere brush head ($30; sephora.com) along with a gentle cleanser—her favorite is Dr. Dennis Gross's face wash-toner hybrid ($30; sephora.com).
