Actor and Singer Chrissy Metz Shares Her Beauty Routine

Plus, her health and wellness rituals for optimal self-care.

You likely recognize Chrissy Metz from playing Kate Pearson in This is Us or for her role in FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show. The actor and singer joins Marie Claire for an episode of Masked and Answered to reveal her go-to morning ritual for a clear glowing complexion.

To start with, Metz's mask of choice is Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask ($75). The actress shares that her morning routine is short and sweet: It consists of cleansing her face in the shower, applying Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum ($60), and hydrating her skin with Trader Joe's Nourish Oil-Free Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer ($13). An at-home beauty ritual must for the star is to always have a lip renewal balm on hand for moisturized lips and her all time favorite serum is Joanna Vargas Rescue Serum ($150)

As for health and wellness rituals, the actor is all about positive vibes, she even has a Spotify playlist titled "Feel Good" that she turns on first thing in the am while she gets ready. Metz also takes vitamins, keeps a mental balance through prayer meditation, and maintains her glowing complexion by making sure to remove all of her makeup before bed. 

She feels most beautiful when practicing self-care, and for Metz, that means drawing her boundaries. "Understanding that if I don't feel comfortable doing something that no is a complete sentence," explains Metz. Ultimately, the actor's top-rated beauty secret is to exude confidence.
