Ciara Reveals the Important Lesson She Wants to Teach Her Daughter About Beauty

When I found out that I would be interviewing Ciara, I polled the Allure staff for questions they thought I should ask. One of the most popular suggestions? Details on her skin-care routine. This should come as little surprise since, after all, we are super obsessed with skin care and, Ciara’s skin consistently looks flawless. When I finally sat down with the 32-year-old songstress at the launch of Pandora’s new Shine Collection (for which she is a brand ambassador), I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that her routine is crazy simple — and possibly a little problematic, at least in her dermatologist’s opinion.
“It’s really bad, but I wash my face with my body soap,” she tells Allure. “I was telling a dermatologist that, and they thought I was crazy. They were looking at me like I had four eyes or something.” Her body wash of choice, however, comes from Dove, which is typically super moisturizing, though she admits that she’s not sure if it’s necessarily great for her gorgeous mug. “Whatever I wash my body with, I will use for my face. I don’t know if that’s the smartest thing,” she says with a laugh. I laugh too, but am actually weeping internally because my skin-care routine is far higher maintenance, with acids and chemical exfoliants galore, and let’s just say my skin doesn’t look as radiant all the time as Ciara’s does. Ah well. Such is life, I suppose, for the unglamorous lot.
