‘This little guy is absolutely a must’

I Didn’t Wake Up Like This is Yahoo Life’s beauty series in which experts, influencers, and celebrities share their approaches to skincare, from their favorite products to their daily routine that keeps their skin healthy and glowing. One of the benefits of getting older is finally figuring out exactly what works for you. For 49-year-old Brooke Burke, along with prioritizing her own self-care and health, that means following daily skincare and makeup routine that’s easy and lets her natural beauty shine through.

The television and fitness personality, actress, and author shared her go-to skincare products with Yahoo Life, along with the makeup staples that she can’t live without — including the mascara brand she’s been using since she was 15 years old. Before applying any products, Burke reaches for Knesko rose quartz gemstone roller to “wake up” her skin each morning, particularly around the eye area. Burke’s trick: She keeps the roller in the freezer to help reduce puffiness in the a.m.

Next, she sprays on one of her favorite moisturizers, Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol, to quickly hydrate her skin. “It just kind of puts a little extra moisture there,” says the founder of Brooke Burke Body. That’s immediately followed by Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, packed with antioxidants to brighten and firm skin’s appearance. “One pump will do it, so you don’t need a lot,” Burke says. “I just kind of tap it in. The one rule is to be super gentle around the eyes.”

Another favorite serum of Burke’s is Drunk Elephant Protini Powerpeptide Resurf Serum, which contains peptides to deliver plumper skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, along with lactic acid to improve skin tone and texture. Burke warms it up in her hands and gently presses it into her face and neck. Burke shares that the one product she “never, ever” skimps on is sunscreen. “I have really bad melasma,” she shares. “I get dark spots on my face. So I can’t get any sun.” She slathers on Cle De Peau UV Protective Cream SPF 50+, which is lightweight, protects against damaging UVA and UVB rays, and contains moisturizing hyaluronic acid. “It’s not super greasy,” says Burke, “and I really focus on where I have my dark spots.”
