People have lots of different ways of coping with stress—taking a long walk, chatting with a close friend, watching a familiar TV show. And then there’s me. I LOVE scrolling through “pretty” skin care Instagram accounts. You know the ones. The ones that show dreamy vanities filled with color coordinated products, with the sunlight shining through at just the perfect moment. Or immaculately tiled showers (and requisite eucalyptus leaves dangling from the shower head) with the most gorgeous collection of body washes and scrubs. Just thinking about it actually calms my anxious mind down.
So, if you’re like me and you want some more beautiful skin care Instagram accounts to follow, allow me to introduce you to my favorites.
Sean Garrette is an esthetician from New York and has one of the most perfect Instagram feeds of all time. And best of all, his product recommendations and reviews are incredibly helpful. We have no choice but to stan!
Abby Marie Hardie
Dreamy vanity shots + a hazy, Arizona-inspired color scheme make Abby’s Instagram page super swoon-worthy. I, for one, am loving what she calls her skincare “towers,” or a collection of all of her hydrating moisturizers.
So clean. So crisp. So modern. I want to know what type of camera Evie uses, like … today.
Meg, The Skinny on Skin
Diptyque candles, check. A dreamy, rose-gold hue, check. Lots and lots of Glossier, Summer Fridays, and the most perfect bathtub set up ever? Check, check, and check.
Ava, Glow with Ava
Since this whole quarantine thing started, I’ve been looking for ways to infuse some self-care into my routine. Ava’s account inspired me to start with something I already love—my skin care routine. I’ve been masking every day and really taking the time to savor the ritual of cleansing and taking care of my skin. Thanks, Ava!
What do you get when you combine your favorite skin care products with a dash of whimsical illustrations? Serum Search! Her account is one of my favorites. I hope she makes prints soon because I’ve been eyeing a few for my guest bathroom.
Annie, The Skincare Stylist
Annie is 1,000% the skin care stylist. I mean, take a look at her page and scroll down to the shot of her skin care on the ladder shelving. I audibly gasped. Perfection!
If minimalism is your jam, then you’ll love the Gelcream account, managed by Yana Shept. Each of her photos features perfectly manicured hands, holding a (non-sponsored!!!) product. Something about the lack of all the extra props really does it for me.
I, like Mandy, like being broke because all I do is spend money on skin care. Will there ever be enough money in the world to support my skin care and makeup addiction? Maybe.
Swoon. What a dream! I’ve been following Sharmtoaster for years, and she never, ever disappoints with her gorgeous photos. I may or may not have bought many skin care products just based on her photos alone. That’s power!
