Rihanna’s Pregnancy Skincare Routine Is Surprisingly Simple

Although her fans have waited years for an album, it seems Rihanna can’t be wrong. Since announcing her pregnancy with ASAP Rocky a few weeks ago, she’s been flipping maternity clothes and giving us one iconic fit after another. Of crop tops at belly accentuating shapes, the 33-year-old musician was determined to live through her pregnancy in style. So it’s no surprise to learn that she has a specialized beauty routine for pregnancy.

During red carpet interview with Refinery29 for Fenty Beauty last week, RiRi said her skin went through a dry patch this winter. “You get these little flakes, so I use the Glow before the show to remove that and start over. It is an excellent beauty regimen. You start with that, you go to your toner, you go to your moisturizer, and then at night you can do a Reset. Sometimes I even use my Reset during the day, just to keep it super hydrated.” No surprise, both products are part of her Fenty Skin rangeand the Glow before the show is brand new. This is a 10% AHA exfoliating treatment that gently smoothes skin with chemical exfoliation rather than harsh scrubbing.

In the same interview, RiRi said her favorite makeup product right now is lipstick. “It always has been, not just now, but especially now. It can change a look, it can create a look, it can transform your feeling,” she said. Refinery29. “Because you know, a lot of days I’m really tired, especially now, but it gets you off the couch for sure, if you can put on a lipstick bomb and just *snap your fingers* put on a look to go with that.”

We don’t know how RiRi does it, but she managed to run a billionaire brand while pregnant look effortless. She also didn’t rule out future musical releases (which fans will be excited to hear). As always, we look forward to her skincare tips and on very tiring days you’ll find us reaching for lipstick whether we’re also pregnant or just feeling exhausted from our imaginary role of godmother to RiRi’s baby.
