Actress Sofia Andres admits that her skin has changed quite a bit after giving birth. In an episode of Barefaced Beauty, the 22-year-old mestiza revealed her fuss-free skincare routine after cleansing. Being a full time mom to baby Zoe has definitely made Sofia opt for products that work efficiently without having to go through too many steps. Also, her main skin concerns are dullness and discoloration, and she’s curated her products to a bare minimum to address those and deliver visible results.
Here’s a quick breakdown of Sofia’s three-step routine to get glowing skin.
1. Start off with a soothing toner.
Sofia recommends Thayers Witch Hazel Toner in either rose water or cucumber scent. This cult classic toner is alcohol-free and super gentle on the skin. Witch hazel is also a known ingredient to calm redness and prevent acne-breakouts.

2. Sofia then uses a whitening toner to fade dark spots and acne marks.
The actress actually applies two types of toners to address two different concerns. Thayer’s to prevent breakouts and soother skin and Luxe Ogranix’s Whitening Repair Essence Toner to brighten her skin and lighten acne spots.
In the video, Sofia applies this toner in a patting motion instead of wiping (unlike the witch hazel toner she started with). She does this so that her skin can properly absorb the product.

3. She skips moisturizer and instead spritz on a moisturizing face mist.
She then finishes her routine with Luxe Organix’s Rosewater Glow face mist. The actress swears by this product for that instant healthy barefaced glow.
