Perkins has spent most of her career in front of the camera serving us full glam looks that fill our saved folders on Instagram, so it’s no surprise that she emphasizes the importance of skin health. “I had pretty temperamental skin growing up. I had acne on my cheeks, and it trickled into adulthood, which is why I became so interested in skin health and later went on to start my own skincare line,” says Perkins. Dezi Skin is all about powerful formulas that actually work (not to mention their beautiful packaging), and that’s a mission I can get behind.
I’ve considered Perkins my own personal source of expert skincare and beauty tips since I was a teenager, so needless to say, I’m taking notes on the advice she’s dropping now. When it comes to skincare, Perkins is a firm believer in the idea that what you put inside your body has a direct impact on your skin, but when she wants a little something extra, she turns to laser facials. “I feel if you are going to splurge, you want to do it on something that works, and there are many out there for different problem areas. Speaking of lasers, laser hair removal was also incredible!” she says. But ultimately, Perkins’s beauty and skincare advice is simple (like, three-words simple): Don’t overdo it. BRB—I need to go write this on my bathroom mirror. “Target what your skin concerns are, and create a simple routine,” says Perkins. Below, she’s sharing the products that make up her own simple routine, so keep scrolling for her recs. (And maybe grab a pen).
