It’s hard to miss Kelly Ripa’s youthful glow as she shines co-hosting Live with Kelly and Ryan. The mom of three has curated the ultimate beauty routine to keep her feeling gorgeous in her skin—and she’s finally sharing the details. In a new interview, the 52-year-old revealed all of her current beauty favorites, including Rodial Vit C cleansing pads for bright, glowing skin.
“In the morning, when I shower, I just use my Dove white bar soap. Then I use these brightening cleansing pads that I’m really into right now, the Rodial Vit C cleansing pads,” Ripa said in a recent interview with Glamour.
The brightening cleansing pads are great for daily use to boost skin’s brightness, exfoliate, and perfect the complexion for an even and fresh appearance. Each cleansing pad uses a formula infused with pure vitamin C, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and fruit acid complex. The formula is vegan-friendly and works well for all skin types.
The fruit AHA acids exfoliate and rejuvenate skin and work alongside the salicylic acid that firms and tones skin while tightening pores. Plus, a blend of blood orange water and pomegranate add antioxidants, protect the skin, condition skin, and provide free radical protection while healing and repairing.
But what really makes this product stand out is the vitamin C that works to brighten, fade dark areas, and prevent future dark spots from forming. “Vitamin C helps produce collagen (which keeps skin firm and reduces the appearance of wrinkles), and protects skin from sun damage and age spots,” Ranella Hirsch M.D., a board-certified dermatologist practicing in Boston previously told Prevention. “Between these varied functions, the majority of folks can benefit from having vitamin C in their skincare routine.”
Plus, customers rave about the brightening pads. One reviewer said, “Best brightening pads I’ve ever used!” and another wrote, “I use these pads nightly after I cleanse and before serum/moisturizer. They help to tighten my enlarged pores, minimize oil (I’m combination skin), and keep my skin from breaking out because of the salicylic acid. They are not drying or sticky.”
Want more of Ripa’s secrets for a youthful glow? Her biggest tip is knowing that her stunning skin takes a lot of work. “Aging gracefully is a lie, and nobody tells you that,” Ripa said in the interview. “And what does that even mean? I keep saying, ‘If people are aging gracefully, why do I have so many skin care products in my cabinet?’”
Since her 30s, Ripa has expanded her skincare routine and has even opened up about getting botox once every 10 months.
“I come from a generation of people who did not know to protect their skin while you’re young,” she said in the interview. “Now it’s all about prevention. [My husband] Mark and I laugh because if we’re watching a television program, I always leave about half an hour before it ends. He’ll say, ‘Are you going to start the routine?’ He knows that if we’re going to go to bed at a decent hour, I need an additional 30 minutes to apply everything.”
