As soon as we were introduced to Gizelle Bryant on The Real Housewives of Potomac two years ago, the socialite won us over with her sass and glam demeanor. Ever since, we can’t help but admire her effortless glow. It seems like no matter what setting she’s in, Gizelle’s skin always looks fab. So, what exactly is the secret behind the Potomac mom's radiant complexion? Believe it or not, it's a very simple and affordable skincare regimen, which the EveryHue Beauty co-founder talks us through in the clip above.
The main steps to Gizelle’s daily routine include using SPF, which she learned from her mama, and a $10 facial cleanser that you can easily find at your nearest drugstore. Gizelle told Most Wanted that she washes her face every day with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser to keep her skin looking soft and moisturized. Shoot, just ten bucks to be on our way to a Gizelle-level glow? We'll take at least five bottles, please!
That's not the only drugstore product Gizelle is obsessed with. The RHOP OG also slathers on Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream every night before she goes to bed to achieve healthy-looking skin.
However, the quirkiest and most surprising drugstore find in Gizelle's beauty routine has to be Milk of Magnesia. Yeah, we know what you're thinking: "Huh?" According to the Real Housewife, the laxative is great for keeping your complexion shine-free throughout the day. "When I was younger a makeup artist put Milk of Magnesia on my face, which apparently soaks up the shine. If you're shiny naturally, that will soak it up and it kind of gives you like a matte finish. And then you start putting your makeup on," she shared. Interesting, no? We'll definitely be giving this a try.
