These were the exact words that sprang to mind when Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness shared his entire skincare regime with his army of loyal fans.
As a card-carrying QE devotee, I can tell you that JVN's hair, skin and general aura is next-level. For his role as the resident grooming expert on Netflix's Queer Eye reboot, Jonathan helps makeover men who are stuck in a rut. He's got all the tips — from using green concealer on red-ish undertones to DIY-ing your own coconut oil-based body scrub.
Obviously, the 31-year-old hairdresser practices what he preaches. He has a certain glow about him — and TBH, we would very much like to steal all of his secrets.
In his latest interview with Into The Gloss, Jonathan went into detail about his favourite beauty buys.
For the record, JVL hasn't always had good skin — he suffers from psoriasis. "I'm all about prevention — mostly zits and psoriasis," he told ITG. "I'm plagued with psoriasis, but I'm on a really good run right now — it's been a minute, knock on wood. I'll knock on it twice. It's all about calming, and keeping it clear."
"My skin is sensitive, so I try not to do crazy aggressive things to it. But I also got to a point in my 30s where my skin could take masks and not causes breakouts. In my 20s, I had too many hormones going on and when I would do a moisture mask it would be like zit city. I haven't done Botox or fillers or anything yet, but I do see differences in my skin from using topical stuff now. I like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, and BHAs — things that are kind of acid-y and just zhush your skin up."
Here, a complete list of every single product JVN puts on his gorgeous skin:
