What Keke Palmer Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Hustlers star Keke Palmer, who has a partnership with Olay, about the lip mask, sports bra, and earbuds she can’t live without.

Sometimes after you use shampoo and conditioner, your hair feels really dry and almost too clean. With this, it actually feels moisturized. I use it every three days. Cantu makes a deep conditioning one and a light conditioning one — I use both of them and alternate throughout the week. I think my hair needs a lot of attention because I’m always doing something to it for work. I have a routine for my hair now — more than I’ve ever had — and I think my hair has really responded to that.

My hair is so pushed and pulled all the time, and I want to make sure I’m encouraging its natural state. So when I’m not working, I try to let it run free and not do too much to it. This steamer helps maintains my curl pattern, and it also works for my skin. I try to use twice a week. I sit under there with the conditioner in — sometimes even with a little mask — and when I come out, my hair is so conditioned and moisturized. I think that’s so important, especially for curly hair. And I try to make sure I’m putting oils in. I didn’t realize, until like a year ago, that when you use oils in your hair, it has to be mixed with something in order for it to really penetrate. I always mix castor oil with my conditioner. And you can get castor oil anywhere! Any beauty supply store or even online or at the grocery store.

When I’m working out, I usually stick to the basics, like Nike. I love their sneakers and their leggings and definitely their sports bras. One of the most annoying things to me, especially when I’d doing cardio, is my boobs moving everywhere. So I feel really protected in the Nike sports bra.

I love Gatorade to this day. On set, I need Gatorade — and water — to keep me hydrated. I’m not really a coffee drinker, so this helps keep me up and ready to go. My favorite is the red.

I have combination skin. I’ve been through a lot of different things with it, like acne, so I just have to gauge it day by day. I love this product. It’s natural and it really works with your skin, as opposed to being too harsh.

Kiehl’s has this avocado under-eye cream that I use as well. I think that area needs a lot of moisture because it can get dry and puffy. I use it before bed and I feel like it refreshes me overnight.

I love this lip mask. First of all, it smells really good. I bite my lips a lot, so this helps keep them moisturized. It feels good, it feels soft, and I feel like it’s actually conditioning my lips.

I’m always wearing my Air Force Ones. They’re the most comfortable, the most classic, the most stylish shoe. They’re a go-to thing in my closet.

I love my AirPods. What am I listening to right now? That new Summer Walker song I really like. Yeah, I don’t want to be annoying and be like “I’m just listening to my music,” but it’s kind of true. Outside of my music, it’s probably one of the only other songs I’m listening to. And Megan Thee Stallion.

I’ve recently partnered with Olay, but I love that I can get this anywhere. No matter what city I’m in, I can always go pick it up. It’s easily accessible. With my schedule sometimes, I have to be honest, I’m not always putting moisturizer on as much as I should. So with this body wash, I can still look moisturized — and not ashy — because of the oil it has in it. It’s just an easy go-to. I use it in the morning and at night.
