Salem Mitchell's Guide to Coping With Freckles and Keeping Your Braids Free

“Growing up, I didn’t think I really had a skincare routine,” says Salem Mitchell. “I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup growing up—my parents really wanted me to be confident in my skin and my freckles.” Her mom, who also has freckles, gave her one piece of advice: Keep skin care and makeup on at the lowest limit. That is, 01 year-old, she only started cultivating her day-to-day life after her big break in the modeling world. For her, skin care is more important than makeup. Here, she shares her secrets to glowing skin, along with other routines, from effortless brows to tangle-free braids.

Every day, Mitchell starts with Cetaphil’s Gentle Cleanser and then Kiehl’s Balancing Toner. “I sometimes realize that even after cleansing, I still have eyelashes on my inner lids. Cream and residue, so toner definitely helps remove excess dirt, which I thought I got, but I simply don’t,” she says. She exfoliates with Fenty Beauty Lip Scrub, followed by Laneige Lip Mask. Noticing her preference for products with “cucumber” ingredients and “moisturizing” labels, she quickly pulls out Peter Thomas Roth hyaluronic acid-infused eye masks. Tatcha’s Dewy Mist provides extra moisture locked in by rich creams, face oils and lightweight sunscreens.

When it comes to makeup, Mitchell likes to follow a simple 3-step skincare regimen that leaves her with a natural glow without complexion products. Glossier’s Boy Brow flattered her arches, Saie’s mascara painted her lashes, and Tom Ford’s warm brown gloss accentuated her pout. Hair care is the final preparation for the new day. “I love braids; it’s an amazing way to protect, but it still puts a little tension on the head, so making sure I take care of my scalp between [installations] is really important,” she says , and condition the scalp with the products Mielle seeks—after pomade and braids with a lathering mousse. “I’m ready to start my day; I’m feeling great, I’m beautiful, and I hope everyone has a great day,” Mitchell said as he waved goodbye.
