When Serena Williams isn’t busy dominating on the tennis court or spending time with her adorable daughter, Olympia, she likes to indulge in a little self-care just like the rest of us. And for her, this means skin care. The 37-year-old tennis star recently opened up about her skin-care routine for the August 2019 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, revealing some of her favorite products.

As it turns out, Williams’ skin-care routine is filled with a mix of both high and low products. For instance, she relies on your standard coconut oil to remove her makeup and Mario Badescu’s $7 Facial Spray with Aloe to both set her makeup and refresh her skin throughout the day.

On the flip side, though, she also uses products with splurge-worthy price tags, including Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Vitamin C Serum, which is a brightening elixir that contains vitamins A and C and costs a whopping $246. She also uses the same brand’s Resveratrol Age Defying Eye Serum, a hydrating eye treatment for $296 and MZ Skin’s Hydra-Bright Golden Eye Treatment Mask, which is a set of five patches supercharged with seaweed, collagen, and hyaluronic acid for $106.

“I hate dark circles around my eyes, so I try to get serious about treating my eyes,” she said about the eye masks. “I leave these on for a few minutes, then I sit down in my room with Olympia and watch Finding Nemo.” Same.

Once she’s removed her eye patches, she taps on the MZ Skin Collagen Activating Eye Complex, which contain ceramides and hyaluronic acid to plump the undereye area. “When I’m traveling I put even put this on my face because whatever you’re using on your eyes is moisturizing and can work for the whole face,” she said.

That being said, take note from Williams about her extensive eye-care routine — dermatologists recommend extra TLC around the eye area, as the skin is thinner and therefore more prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and crepiness. “The undereye area is one of the thinner areas and is easily neglected in basic skin care,” Paul Jarrod Frank, a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City, previously told Allure. Case in point: Don’t forget about this area, folks. It’s important.

If you’re looking for a more, budget-friendly undereye patch option, we recommend these, which are highly effective options at every price point.
