Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Shares Her Skincare Routine on Instagram

Want to know how the stars take such good care of their skin? Well, now you can! Or at least, you can learn the tips and tricks used by Democrats’ rising star, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). The 29-year-old freshman congresswoman took to Instagram to let her followers know how she maintains that youthful glow.

Unlike some of her policy positions, there’s nothing revolutionary in Ocasio-Cortez’s regimen. At its core, it’s three basic steps: clean, toner, moisturize.

She recommends double cleansing, first using a balm or oil to “melt off the makeup” and then using a “soapy cleanser to wash your skin.”

Ocasio-Cortez also makes a strong argument for sunscreen. “I’ve been using daily sunscreen since I was 19,” she said. “I’ve been bad about it lately & I can tell the difference.”

“When it comes to makeup, don’t use more than you need!” she writes. “Let your skin BREATHE. If you’re laying your face in makeup day after day (which is totally fine!) make sure you slean or wipe your skin early when you get home so it has time to rest. Sounds weird but that’s the best way I can describe it.”

Ocasio-Cortez also weighs in on fake lashes, saying she has tried them but has never left the privacy of her own home while wearing them.

“I’ve used both nice makeup and drugstore make up,” she adds. “I also straight up don’t wear makeup some days and everyone just has to deal with it.”
