Jada Pinkett Smith Says This $4 Skincare Find is the Secret to Flawless Skin — ‘It’s 1 of My Favorite Products’
Even Jada Pinkett Smith’s biggest critics must admit that the woman has flawless skin. After two kids and close to five decades on this earth, the producer and talk show host has been through a lot. But you’d never know it by looking at her.
So many celebrities of Pinkett Smith’s financial status use fancy $300 face creams and lotions which are out of reach for most consumers. However, the Matrix franchise alum keeps it real with a sub-$5 skincare item you can easily find at Walmart or Target.
And even better? She has no shame admitting it’s one of her favorites.
Jada Pinkett Smith is a woman of many talents
Pinkett Smith has never been content to only do one thing. Over the course of her career, she’s worked as an actress, screenwriter, producer, talk show host, businesswoman, and sometimes singer-songwriter. The Red Table Talk host also keeps busy as a daughter, wife, and mother, often sharing intimate details of her personal life on her popular talk show.
The mom of two isn’t afraid to share unorthodox opinions, most notably the fact that she and fellow actor Will Smith don’t have a traditional marriage. But underneath it all, they have a true love connection.
“I really think that Will and I just have amazing chemistry on a lot of different levels,” Smith told Andy Cohen in 2017, according to US Weekly. “We love to laugh together, we love to learn together, and we just love each other. We just have a good time together. Yeah, I guess that’s the secret. Yeah, we just really like each other!”
She looks much younger than 50
Pinkett Smith isn’t the only actor who looks way younger than her actual age. But unlike so many other Hollywood stars, the talk show guru says she never went under the knife to enhance her looks. In a 2018 interview with Today, Pinkett Smith said she did get steroid shots to combat hair loss but credits her youthful good looks to “eating well, exercising, [and] drinking water.”
And that’s not all. The Set It Off star also uses a simple toner anyone can find at their local drugstore.
Jada Pinkett Smith uses budget-friendly skincare items
One of Pinkett Smith’s favorite products happens to cost less than a Venti latte from Starbucks. During a 2018 Today Show interview (via Yahoo Life), the 49-year-old mom said she adores Clean & Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent.
“It’s one of my favorite products. It is brilliant,” Pinkett Smith gushed. “I use the one that’s pink. The deep cleaning one. It pulls all the stuff out and it closes the pores as well. It’s awesome.” And the best part of all? You can find it for under $5 at Walmart, Target, or your local drugstore.
Other products Pinkett Smith recommends
That’s not the only low-end, high quality product Pinkett Smith uses. She’s also an investor in Black-owned hair care company Carol’s Daughter. The brand is also sold at Target and Walmart with an array of hair items from shampoo and conditioner to leave-in creams and other specialty moisturizing items.
Pinkett Smith doesn’t wear much makeup, preferring a fresh face, light cosmetics, and some great red lipstick. With her clear skin, she definitely doesn’t need more than that.
