Skincare Secrets from 'The Real'

The pursuit of more flawless skin is a lifelong journey, but here at “The Real,” our hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton and Jeannie Mai are dropping some serious skin knowledge on you that might make the struggle a little less complicated.

The hosts cover a bunch of things they’ve tried, from the outrageous to the practical, in their personal quest for smoother, softer, healthier-looking skin, including a practice lots of people have heard of, and the hosts have some experience with.

“I know people that actually only wash their face with bottled water,” Adrienne said.

While opening a bottle of Evian every time you need to wash your face might get a little pricey, there are alternative methods to using purified water in your everyday skin care and body cleansing routine.

“You can get, actually, a showerhead filter at Bed, Bath and Beyond,” Tamera said. “They’re really, really cool, and it’s just softer on your hair, it’s softer on your skin.”

While some of the hosts use topical treatments, like cleaner water or a specific facial regimen, others, like Loni, go with beauty tricks that work from the inside out.

“I use beer,” Loni said. “That’s what I do. I drink a beer… I’m saying that’s what works for me. You put chia seeds on your face, I drink beer. Everybody got something.”
