The $US39 cleanser contains 2% salicylic acid to prevent acne and menthol to help soothe irritation. Other users seem to agree with Curry, as it currently has a full five-star rating on Dermstore.

Aside from her trusty cleanser, Curry says she still experiments with other treatments and products to see what works best for her

“I’ve been trying to take better care of my skin lately,” Curry told INSIDER. “And for me it’s been a series of trial and error.”

One of her latest discoveries is a multi-step facial that has become a celebrity favourite.

“What’s been working for me lately is getting a HydraFacial often just to get the impurities out,” she told us.

According to the HydraFacial website, the treatment utilises three steps to peel, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. The 30-minute process has become a favourite of several celebrities, including actress Anna Paquin.

Curry has also been ditching facial lotions in favour of facial oils, and she uses a trendy product to help them soak in

“I’ve been really into the gimmicky face rollers, I think they work!” Curry told INSIDER. “I like them, I feel relaxed after.”

She recommends the $US69 Nurse Jamie Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller or the $US195 Akari Gold Massager from Tatcha if you want something extra luxurious.

Once her skin-care routine is done and it’s time for makeup, Curry says popping on a striking lip colour is her secret to a low-maintenance routine

“If I’m tired, popping on a bold lipstick masks the exhaustion,” she said.

Curry is a spokesperson for CoverGirl, and her current favourite lipstick is the brand’s $US8 Outlast line since she says “they literally stay for 24 hours.”

“They are hard to get off unless you use an oil-based remover,” she told us. “But that’s what you want, you don’t want to have to reapply your stuff. You want to be able to kiss your kids and not worry about it getting all over them.”

Curry has recently launched a new GoDaddy-produced website called Homemade, where her fans can check out her various recipes and other lifestyle tips.
