Most actors and actresses live pretty private lives when they aren’t on set, and we occasionally catch glimpses of them through social media, or interviews but not much more.
Madelaine Petsch fans are lucky enough to get an inside look at her life through her YouTube channel. She shares what she eats and what life is like on set, and for us redheads, she’s even shared some redhead beauty secrets. Recently she put out a video showing her nighttime skin routine, and while she didn’t name too many products directly, she did give us a few tidbits, so here’s everything we learned.
HAIR OIL IS A MUST: After brushing her hair, Madelaine applies hair oil to her long red locks. She sleeps with her hair in a bun or braid.
DOUBLE CLEANSING: Nightly, Madelaine uses a purifying gel cleanser, and then a few times a week she uses an acne face wash. She focuses her acne treatments on her nose and other areas where pores get clogged.
SKINCARE STRUGGLES: Several times throughout the video, Madelaine talks about how she’s struggled to figure out her skin and how her skincare is ever-evolving based on what her skin needs.
FACIAL SPRAY: Madelaine uses the Sunday Riley Pink Drink Firming and Resurfacing Essence ($48) after she cleanses and dries her face. The product is meant to leave skin renewed and nourished while balancing and firming the skin.
FACE MASK: Typically she says she does a face mask and right now she is loving the Energizing Cleansing Masque from Renee Rouleau ($53).
EYE CREAM ALWAYS: Madelaine applies her eye cream before any of her other skincare cream products, why? We aren’t sure, but it seems to be working for her.
PLUMPING TREATMENT: Next up in her routine is The Essence Skincare Boosting Treatment from Tatcha ($95) which is for resurfacing, softening, and plumping.
HYALURONIC ACID: After the plumping treatment, while her face is still wet, Madelaine applies her Hyaluronic acid all over the face and lets everything dry.
RETINOL: Not all redheads can use retinol because it can be quite harsh on sensitive skin. Madelaine seems to have no issues and goes in with her retinol next. She explains how she’s done a lot of research on the product and knows it’s important for her skin.
H2BAR Tip: If you’re a redhead who can’t use retinol, try Bakuchiol, a sensitive skin-friendly alternative.
MOISTURIZER: The next step in her beauty routine is to use a thick moisturizer to keep skin hydrated and nourished during the wintertime.
ACNE SPOT TREATMENT: Madelaine isn’t shy about the fact she struggles with acne sometimes, but says her holy grail blemish product is the Post-Breakout Fading Gel from Renee Rouleau ($43).
Rock it like a Redhead!
