Kendall Jenner: "I've always been super OCD about washing my face—and that's even before I started modeling. But it's definitely enhanced now because I wear so much makeup all the time. I wash my face at least two or three times a day. My sisters," Jenner continues, "since they're a little bit older than Kylie and I, they've always wanted to help prevent anything that they've gone through when they were our age. So they're like, 'Never touch your face, never pick your face, always wash your face, and wear eye cream.' They literally give us everything that we should do. So ever since then, we've started taking skincare really seriously."

Don't remove your eye makeup with a makeup wipe. Jaime King: "What I do for mascara that's very gentle is I wash my face, put the water on lukewarm, and take my fingers and gently rub my eyelashes under the water. And then you take your mascara off gently like that. Just gently massage your eyelashes under the water, and that way you don't have to scrub, scrub, scrub that delicate skin around your eyes, which is the first thing that starts wrinkling."

Victoria Brito: "I really believe that washing your face in the morning is the most important thing you can do for yourself every day to really hydrate the skin. I use Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Cleanser  in the white bottle. I also have a basic Nivea Cream  that I use, the Nivea Soft Moisturizing Cream . I feel like it's the perfect amount of moisture because you don't want to overdo it and be all gooey. I also have this face exercise I do every day where I put my middle fingers up near my temples and my thumbs at the top of my cheekbones and kind of pull my whole face up for about 10 minutes and hold it in place. I swear it keeps everything looking and feeling lifted. I've learned so many tips and tricks from my mother and grandmother just using regular household items. For example, to get rid of dark circles, take a potato, cut it into slices like a pepperoni, and put one slice over each eye for about 15 to 20 minutes once a week. I swear, after doing it about five times, you'll start to see a drastic reduction of dark circles. The potato literally starts to get dark and shrivel up while you use it—it's crazy! My mom taught me that. Also, to get rid of blackheads, grab a cup, fill it with sugar, and then grab half a lemon, squeeze out all the lemon juice, and rub the mixture onto your skin for five minutes, and it will feel like a baby's bottom! do that once a week, usually on Sunday night."


Moisturize…….. a lot

Shanina Shaik: "In the morning, I cleanse, tone, moisturize, and exfoliate two times a week. I moisturize a lot—day and night. I usually change my skin products according to the seasons, for winter and summer. My skin is very oily, so I tend to opt for a lighter moisturizer. I love Kora Organics by Miranda [Kerr]—its cleanser is the product I really, really love. Neutrogena has amazing moisturizers, and I use a line called Adore. All the products are really beautiful, delicate, and gentle on your skin. The Golden Touch 24K Techno-Dermis Eye Mask is great."

Anja Rubik: "I like to mix a lot of skin products. I'm actually a bit of a product freak. I have lots of organic things, too—I love Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream , and the brand has an amazing mask, too. I try to do a moisturizing mask a few times a week—I like the one by Nuxe. If my skin feels really dry, I use coconut oil on my face and on my body. I also have a cream that I picked up at the farmers market; it's made from bee pollen. It's quite gross when you apply it; it has a really specific smell. The next day, your skin is incredible, though! I never go to bed with makeup on; I think it's really important to cleanse your skin daily and really, really well. I like to mix things up because I think your skin is really individual and also changes based on what time of year it is, what time of your life. And of course, you can put on a great product, but a lot of it is what you eat and how you hydrate."

Invest in a good facialist.

Lindsay Ellingson: "Once a month, I see my facialist, Ildi Pekar. She's originally from Budapest, and she has very unique treatments, as well as a brand-new skincare line based on raw honey called I Pekar. She has really transformed my skin. I rarely get breakouts, and my skin tone is much more even now. My favorite treatment is called Microcurrent ; it's like a workout for your face!"

Jourdan Dunn: "I start off by cleansing with an Emma Hardie Moringa Balm followed by Exuviance Face Polish  and The Organic Pharmacy Herbal TonerThe second half of my routine consists of SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Night Serum and Pixi Rose Oil  layered on top along with the Beauty Sleep Cream  to lock everything in."

Don't overdo it on products.

Erin Heatherton: "Using too many products can irritate the skin. A couple times a week, when my skin isn't terribly overworked, the best thing is to rinse my face with warm water. Also, I eat plenty of foods rich in vitamin A to help keep my skin clear."

The Simple Bedtime Routine Kendall Jenner Swears By For A Clear Skin

As a model, Kendall Jenner gets to try out just about every makeup and beauty product. But when it comes to her skin care routine, she prefers to stick to the basics with a two-step regimen.

"I like to keep it pretty simple at night," Jenner explained in a new post on the Kendall Jenner app. "First, I start with Estée Lauder's Micro-Cleansing Balm (RM 185.00 ; sephora.com)." The skin's natural heat melts the balm into an oil. And oils are amazing at dissolving makeup, even tough-to-remove lipstick and caked-on mascara. So there's no need to scrub your face with makeup wipes before washing.

After all of the debris from the day is removed, Jenner completes her routine with a nourishing moisturizer. "I smooth on the Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme (MYR 268.00; sephora.com)," she explains. The formula adds effective ingredients that will boost collagen and elastin as you sleep. And that's typically how Jenner treats her skin overnight.

And occasionally, she'll go above and beyond. "If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll add in a mask in between. It's the best feeling to wake up knowing you did something good for your face the night before."
