WATCH | US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reveals her simple, yet effective skincare regime

The United States’ fearless and powerful congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has spilled out her secret routine for ‘glowing skin’.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a busy politician and constantly traveling. From New York to Washington D.C, she is always on the go. With a full routine and not much time to sleep, one might commonly expect her to have breakouts and compromised skin. However, the politician definitely doesn’t. And since everyone was eager to know her secret skin-care routine, she finally spilled it out to Vogue.

Alexandria Ocasio-Crotez’s (AOC) skincare routine

Alexandria said that people usually have this misconception that taking interest in skincare or makeup is purposeless. But the politician believes that it is necessary and important.

Here is the skin care routine that she follows herself.

Starting off with a toner

She starts off her skincare routine by using ‘Estee Lauder’s Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion’. And she uses her bare hands to apply it to the skin, not a cotton pad.

The next step is a vitamin C serum and moisturizer

An antioxidant is super important for the skin. Using vitamin C on the skin helps nourish the skin and bring out its inner glow.

After the serum, she moves towards a moisturizer. She uses ACURE’s Radically Rejuvenating Whipped Night Cream for the purpose. This cream is yet another source of vitamin C.

She doesn’t skip the sunscreen

She uses Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence with an SPF 50 and coats her overall face with the product. AOC appreciated the sunscreen saying that it doesn’t ‘white coat’ her face, which is a common occurrence with sunscreens. Moreover, she also emphasized on applying the sunblock to the eyelids and ears, which people usually skip.

A bold lip tops everything off perfectly

The congresswoman is a minimalist with her overall makeup. However, she says that she feels confident only when she has a ‘red lip’.

She also focused on the most important thing that any person needs and that is self-care and self-love. She said that people try to fit you to their standards and tell you that you’re not the ‘right weight or the right color’. But you need to ‘mini-protest’ in the form of self-care, to love yourself.
