Phoebe Dynevor in the last episode of vogueBeauty secrets. Then the Bridgerton star starts her routine with Sunday Riley’s CEO 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum.
“When I was growing up, I had mostly dry skin, so I started applying Vaseline and putting it everywhere. Then I learned a good skincare routine,” she says before d ‘enter with another Sunday Riley favourite, the Auto Correct Eye Contour Cream.
“Bridgerton was difficult because your skin is in so much demand, you don’t get enough sleep and they put makeup on you every day,” says the 26-year-old, who otherwise doesn’t wear foundation or powder. “It’s very intense for your skin.” She uses a gua sha to deflate, a practice she favors when she has time, chilling it in the fridge and slipping it over her skin in the car on the way to work.

She explains that it took “going out into the real world” to see the success of the show and how it affected people. She completes her routine by filling in her mole. “It’s funny how the things you hate when you’re younger, you start to realize that you’re unique and individual,” she notes.
