Serena Williams knows the secret to glowing skin, and she’s passing the knowledge on to her daughter. In a new video for Harper’s Baazar, the tennis pro details her $900 beauty routine, noting that her daughter will often follow along.
“The first step in my routine, when I’m taking off my makeup and coming undone, I actually do something completely different,” Williams explains, revealing that she uses the Lovingearth Cold pressed coconut oil since discovering the product on a trip to Australia. “I use coconut oil because it’s amazing. I use it for everything you can think of. When I heard that oil washes were good, I’m like I’ve been doing that for years.”
For her second step, Williams turns to the Vine Vera Resveratol Vitamin C Serum. “I ran across this product from Vine and Vera on a babymoon in Mexico and became instantly obsessed with it. I just do a couple of dabs on my face and I always give Olympia some dabs.” She follows it up with an eye serum from the same company.
She moves on to the MZ Skin Hydra-Bright Golden Eye Treatment Mask noting that she found it on a shopping trip in London and was instantly drawn to its pink and gold packaging. “I thought it must be amazing if it’s pink and gold [my favorite colors], and it actually is.” While waiting for her mask to set, she spends some time with her daughter. “I usually like to sit down in my room with Olympia and watch ‘Finding Nemo’ because she watches it like a million times.”
The last product for her under eyes is the MZ Skin Soothe & Smooth Collagen Activating Eye Complex ($149). “Sometimes when I’m traveling, I’ll put this on my whole face because I feel like whatever you’re using under your eyes is super moisturizing and could work for the whole face. It’s important to make your beauty routine your own.” She finishes up her nighttime routine with the Ayur-Medic Enrichment Cream for Age-Prevention and a few spritzes of the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater.
Williams’s glowing skin comes in handy on and off the court, as she is currently the face of Nike Women’s Sportswear – often debuting creations designed by her friend Virgil Abloh as a part of the Off-White X Nike Collab. With more and more celebrities entering the beauty game, it seems as if Williams has thrown her hat in the ring. Back in March, TMZ reported that she has filed documents to trademark the name “Aneres” in a number of different beauty-based categories, including skincare, makeup-removing products, colognes, perfumes, makeup kits, bath soaps, lipstick, lip gloss, eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara.
