Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Broke Down Her Skin-Care Routine, Including a $16 Drugstore Serum

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is expanding her skin-care routine with some TikTok favorites. On Jan. 28, the congresswoman responded to a journalist on Twitter who asked about her go-to products. "I don't mean to state the obvious but besides being compassionate, articulate and brilliant, @AOC is drop dead gorgeous and what moisturizer is she using okay I'm done," Lisa Guerrero tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez responded: "Thanks! I've actually been trying some new drugstore items in my skincare. The Cerave Vit C serum is legit! I tried a fancier one before that but it turned orange too fast. I've also been using either the Cerave tinted sunscreen or @iliabeauty super serum w/ a little powder."

We're especially stoked to see the budget-friendly brand CeraVe on Ocasio-Cortez's list. The drugstore line has been a skin-care staple for many years, but you can credit its recent rising popularity to TikTok influencers. It helps that the products Ocasio-Cortez called out, like the CeraVe Vitamin C Serum and the brand's tinted sunscreen, are priced at $16 so our wallets can rest easy.
