You know Tati Gabrielle as Gaia, the Flamekeeper on CW’s The 100, Merienne Bellamy on You, and Braddock in Uncharted, but the audacious actress is a self-proclaimed skincare buff.
In a recent Vogue video, the 26-year old shared her skincare secrets to keeping her super-sensitive skin extra radiant. Keep reading to find out which products she uses and the skincare rules she lives by.
Tati Gabrielle started struggling with breakouts when she hit her 20s. Ever since, she’s been hooked to this cleanser from Dr Bronner’s. She loves the peppermint burst, which helps calm the skin and reduce inflammation.
It also contains organic oils such as coconut oil, hemp seed oil, olive oil, palm kernel oil, and jojoba oil, improving hydration levels, and making your skin silkier, smoother, and more radiant.
The best part?
You just need a couple of drops, and your skin will feel much cleaner and softer.
There’s no complexion concern this LED Mask from Dr Dennis Gross can’t help with.
Yes, it is a bit pricey, but it uses both red light and blue light technologies that help tamp down sensitivity, increase collagen production (sayonara fine lines and wrinkles), and reduce redness and blasts acne-causing bacteria.
You can also combine the two light therapies into one session to reap all the benefits at once. Tati uses it for three minutes a day.
Facial peels take exfoliation to another level, promising to slough off dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, glowing, and radiant complexion underneath.
Ms Gabrielle uses the Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Peels to improve the appearance of dark spots and smooth out her skin texture.
She uses the ‘Exfoliate and Smooth’ pad first, focusing on the areas with breakouts and dark spots more.
After five minutes, she uses the Anti-Aging Neutralizer packed with glycolic, lactic and salicylic acid to stimulate collagen production, ward off wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of smile lines.
FYI, these peels don’t actually lead to peeling since they’re self-neutralizing.
Lush Tea Tree Toner, $13
This alcohol-free toner from Lush is an under-the-radar steal loaded with skin-loving pinch-hitters rallying for fresher, healthier, and luminous complexions.
It helps snap oily, dull, and tired skin back into shape with just a spritz, and its tea tree, juniper berry and grapefruit combo work like a cool drink of water for any complexion. Praise be.
Tati Gabrielle was a tomboy growing up, so skincare wasn’t something she paid much attention to. But since getting into acting, she had learned more about makeup and skincare while on set.
It’s there that she discovered this gem.
The 2-in-1 Power Liquid from COSRX helps cool your face to prevent pores from getting bigger. She especially loves its natural elements, including natural BHA with smooth skin texture and White Willow Bark that gently clears debris and rough flakes.
To use it:
- Apply it ass your toner in the morning – it makes your skin softer and smoother, which is an ideal prep for makeup
- Soak in some cotton pads and use it as a toner sheet mask for 5-10 minutes every night – it’ll help get rid of the excess sebum
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Dark Spot Serum, $79
If you fall into the oily, sensitive, combination skin-types camp, consider this dark spot serum from Caudalie sent from the heavens. Tati loves its olive-squalene combination, which helps moisturize the skin and combats oil production.
It also has viniferine, a potent ingredient that evens skin tone to give you an out-of-this-world glow.
COSRX AC Collection Lightweight Soothing Moisturizer,$19
The cult-favorite moisturizer has some pretty awesome reviews, and for good reason. A powerful remedy for acne, the light, non-sticky formula helps revitalize and recover the skin without any irritation, making it perfect for oily and acne-prone skin.
COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream, $22
Tati Gabrielle struggles with eczema around the eyes and eyelids, which is why she loves this K-Beauty staple. The cream contains super-hydrating snail mucin, peptides, and niacinamide that plump, firm, and enhance radiance.
She applies it under the eye area and dabs some on top, too.
Tati loves to be by the water, so beach days are a must for her, and so is SPF. She wasn’t much of a sunscreen user before, but she realized the importance of wearing SPF daily since she started having some skin scarring.
Her favorite go-to? The Tula Protect & Glow SPF 30.
The non-comedogenic formula contains skincare-enhancing ingredients like papaya, pineapple and probiotic extracts that don’t clog pores or leave a white cast.
It also uses encapsulated technology that gives you a gorgeous, radiant glow that wears seamlessly under makeup or on its own.
Lastly, Tati Gabrielle harnesses the power of the peach waters in this restorative lip mask to achieve ultra-hydration and enjoy full, juicy lips all day long.
