  • Brandy, singer and actress, shared her skincare routine with Glamour earlier this week.
  • The star said she uses IV drip therapy to keep her skin glowing and youthful.
  • Her skincare routine includes several high-end products and $US9 ($AU12) makeup wipes by Neutrogena.

In a recent interview with Glamour, singer and actress Brandy shared her secret to glowing, ageless skin.

The star of ’90’s sitcom “Moesha” and the upcoming ABC series “Queens,” told the publication her skincare routine follows the basic order dermatologists recommend: remove makeup, cleanse, apply serums, and moisturize.

On top of her daily skincare routine, she uses a popular treatment among celebrities, vitamin infusion therapy administered via an IV drip.

“I’ve worked on my skin all my life. I used to go to a lot of different dermatologists because I had eczema at one point,” Brandy told the publication. “Now I’ve found my groove and the products that really work for my skin.”

Brandy uses $US9 ($AU12) makeup wipes to cleanse her skin after a long day of shooting

At the end of her day, Brandy said she likes to remove her makeup using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Wipes which cost $US9 ($AU12) at Ulta.

“Even if I don’t have much makeup on to remove, I love the way it hydrates my skin,” Brandy told Glamour. “It feels amazing and so smooth and gets my face really clean.”

She follows up with a higher-end cleanser, switching between Natura Bisse’s Diamond White Rich Luxury Cleanse ($US77 ($AU103)) or Diamond Cocoon Daily Cleanse ($US76 ($AU102)).

Dermatologists previously told Insider washing your face daily is crucial to prevent damage to your skin.

“It’s important to remove makeup as well as oil, dirt, and pollution that may have free radicals that contribute to cellular damage,” dermatologist Dr. Hadley King said.

Applying eye cream before she moisturizes allows the serum to seep into her skin

After cleansing, Brandy applies her eye cream, Natura Bissé Diamond Extreme Eye ($US228 ($AU305)). While both eye cream and moisturizer hydrate your skin, applying eye cream first allows the ingredients in the eye cream to better permeate your skin.

Dr. Corey L. Hartman, dermatologist and founder of Skin Wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama, previously told Insider he recommends layering moisturizing ingredients from thinnest to heaviest to better ensure ingredients are effectively absorbed.

Brandy follows up by moisturizing her full face with Natura Bissé’s Diamond Extreme Cream ($US385 ($AU514)).

Vitamin infusion therapy is getting more popular among Hollywood stars to treat a range of concerns, from skincare to anxiety

In addition to her daily skincare routine, Brandy has recently started using IV therapy to maintain her healthy skin and hair.

IV therapy typically involves a person getting a specific mix of vitamins administered through an IV drip.

In recent years, celebrities like Justin Bieber and Rihanna have said they use different IV therapies. IV therapy is meant to treat a range of issues from skincare to libido to side effects from substance abuse.
