Thanks to social media, fans have more direct access to celebrities than ever. It’s possible to send Ashley Graham an Instagram DM asking for her favorite suntan lotion, or see exactly which sheet mask Emma Stone uses before she walks the red carpet. It’s because of that transparency that fans of the rock band Paramore now know how long lead singer Hayley Williams has been using sunscreen.

Fans noticed that Williams, who has been singing and touring with Paramore for 14 years, has glowing skin. They posted an image of Williams on Twitter and asked her to “drop the skincare routine sis.”


To their delight, Williams did. “Its a simple, 1 step routine called ‘dealing with hormonal acne since the age of 21.’ Basically, you just obsess over all the skincare for your whole life and still break out like a teen anyway — keeps me young,” she joked on Twitter.

She then went on to share a crucial tip from her actual routine: sunscreen. She’s used SPF 45 or higher since age 16, which may explain why she’s wrinkle-free. Williams also prefers “a physical sunblock with a high % of zinc,” all the better for protecting her skin while she’s onstage outside.



Williams is just the latest celebrity to take to social media with beauty and skin care secrets. John Mayer caused a minor beauty frenzy when he talked skin care on Snapchat. Mayer (who is 40, can you believe it?) uses luxury products like Natura Bissé and popular acne brand Proactiv. More recently, Mayer also talked about how lifestyle changes have improved his skin: “I don’t smoke and I don’t drink anymore, I don’t go out in the sun, I don’t eat — and I don’t love anybody,” he said. 


Singer-songwriter Jhené Aiko revealed her entire skin care routine in her Instagram comment section. When a fan asked her to “drop the gems” about her glowing skin, Aiko did, in incredible detail. “I get Fraxel about twice a year. It’s an intense laser treatment that improves texture, acne scars, and enlarged pores. It’s kinda expensive and hurts like s***. Your face micro scabs… the scabs fall off gradually… over a period of like 7 days, and then a new layer of skin is revealed… your face stays swollen for like another week. It’s all so worth it tho lol,” she wrote. 

She continued with a product list, and the dietary changes she’s made: “I keep up the results with Alastin Skin Care, IS Clinical Serums, CeraVe wash, Lancer Scrub, and Circell ab serum. Also I take collagen pills, drink kangen water, apple cider vinegar and take Super Food by Dr. Shulzes daily! lol hope this answered your question.” Clearly, Aiko makes good skin a priority.

Celebs are even making pimples cool. Justin Bieber recently shared a zitty selfie, while Kendall Jenner walked the red carpet with her blemishes for all to see. Her words of wisdom? “Never let that s*** stop you!”

With celebrities more open than ever about what it actually takes to get glowing skin, we advise all beauty junkies to make sure to follow your faves on social media. You may just end up using their cleanser.
