We'll admit, we love taking skincare recommendations from celebrities. They have their pick of the bunch when it comes to beauty products, and so you can be pretty confident that they'll only use the tried and tested best.

One famous face we're taking recommendations from is Jada Pinkett Smith, who we're usre you'll agree has seriously amazing skin. Clearly she takes good care of it, so when she posted a video of her full skincare routine to YouTube you can bet we took notice. 

Keep reading for everything Jada uses in her "reset" regime. Spoilers, it involves a LOT of facial steaming...

Jada Pinkett Smith skincare routine: what does the star use?

Kicking things off with a facial steam, first Jada applies Tatcha's The Deep Cleanse before steaming once more. "This is a deep cleanser but it's really super gentle," she explained. 

Next, she applies Dermalogica's Pre-Cleanse, "a really light oil that is going to help the microdermabrasion machine go over the skin easily," before using said machine and waiting 20 minutes for any marks to disappear.

For those who can't afford to shell out on a microdermabrasion machine, Jada recommends using Pre Cleanse with an exfoliating cloth, which you can pick up for a couple of dollars/pounds.

Next up Jada reveals a pretty unique skincare step – gently exfoliating her eyelids and eyebrows using a little baby soap by Burt's Bees, followed by another steam.

She then applies a pore cleansing mask by drugstore favourite Neutrogena, which can be used as a cleanser or a mask – and then, you guessed it, another steam. The lady loves to steam!

The next step in the routine is a homemade face mask using avocado and honey, which she leaves on for 20 minutes. "My skin is always super soft after using this!" she enthuses. If you don't want the fuss of making a fresh avocado mask, Jada recommends the Tatcha Luminous Mask instead. 

Then Jada applies her serums, the ProDerma Retinol Serum and the ZO Health Wrinkle + Texture Repair. Lastly she slathers on the moisturiser, either using the Epicuren Discovery Facial Emulsion Enzyme Moisturizer or Kreyol Get The Glow Moringa Face Oil. "I love face oils but some of them are too greasy – this one is so good!" she says of the latter.

And that's it! The star also shared that she keeps her skin hydrated by drinking 12 bottles of water per day, so be sure to up your hydration levels if you want to get Jada's glow for yourself. Watch the video in full for yourself below.

Jada has promised that she'll be sharing more of her skincare regimes in future, which, we don't know about you, but we can't wait for.

Happy steaming!
