Sofia Richie has entered a new phase of life, and the model, who recently announced she’s expecting her first baby with husband Elliot Grainge, is bringing fans along for the ride.

The social media influencer went super viral around the time of her wedding with the music executive in the South of France last April. Since then, she has given followers a closer look at her glamorous life, regularly showing off her outfits, makeup routines and beauty and skincare favorites.

The fashionista, who is the queen of the sophisticated quiet luxury aesthetic, was just named global brand partner for SkinCeuticals. The 25-year-old candidly spoke to Vogue about how her skin has been acting up and breaking out over the past seven months of her pregnancy. She shared the affordable cleanser that has helped the most, which was recommended by her dermatologist.

“I haven’t experienced hormonal acne since high school. It’s probably the number one thing that has really drastically changed in my life—having to deal with bumps and oil production,” she said. “I’ve really had to go back to the drawing board. My skin’s become super-oily, yet flaky at the same time, so I’ve really had to figure out a balance that worked for my skin. I wash my face now three times a day. I used to do just morning and nights.”

The SkinCeuticals cleanser is the brand’s “best cleanser for oily skin.” It is formulated with an amino acid surfactant system and unique ingredients to effectively remove makeup and excess oil and leave the skin feeling clean.

Key ingredients include a fruit acid blend (which works to very gently exfoliate dead skin cells), botanical extracts (which have softening properties to soothe and calm the skin) and chamomile (a clinically-proven anti-inflammatory).
