Needless to say, I’ll take whatever Usher’s having. Fortunately, the superstar has a comprehensive pre-show skin care and wellness routine, which he shared with Vogue ahead of his 2023 Las Vegas residency.
“Can I say I’m vain?” he said. “Yeah, because I care about myself, I care about my skin, I care about how I look. This thing I’m preserving [is] for you, you know, for our entertainment.” Thank you for your service, Usher!
To start, Usher uses Acne Expert Skincare Soothing Gentle Cleanser, and explains that he prefers gentle yet robust products because he struggled with his skin as a teen. “I went through a great deal of really, really bad acne as a kid,” he said. “I mean, my face broke out so bad, so I had to find something that was simple enough to be able to keep up.”
Usher follows his cleanser with Mario Badescu’s rose-water spray and Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.
