Rachel Lindsay & Becca Kufrin Reveal What They Learned About Skin Care from Their Time on 'The Bachelor'
Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin each have a gorgeous glow that anyone would be envious of.
But, as they explained on this week’s episode of “Bachelor Happy Hour,” the co-hosts were clueless about skin care until they began their respective journeys within Bachelor Nation.
Rachel — who competed for Nick Viall’s heart on Season 21 of “The Bachelor” in 2017 before leading “The Bachelorette” Season 13 later that year — admitted that her skin care routine was minimal at best before entering the world of reality TV.
“I never focused on skin care until I became a part of Bachelor Nation. For me, what I was doing was working for me, which was pretty much nothing and was a blessing,” she said, noting that becoming a public figure made her reconsider how she treated her epidermis.
“As you get older in life and stress and all of that, your skin changes. And so I actually have a skin care routine now, which I never had before,” she continued, later adding that she takes extra care of her neck because of her mother’s advice that came rushing back to her as an adult.
“Because we focus on our face, my mom always taught me, ‘You have to focus on your neck.’ Your neck ages so fast, so what you’re doing to your face you should be doing to your neck, too,” Rachel said. “So, if you’re moisturizing your face, moisturize your neck too.”
For her part, Becca said she learned a lot from her fellow contestants while filming “The Bachelor” Season 22, which aired in 2018.
“It wasn’t really until I was living in the mansion with 25 women where you share countertop space [that I learned about skin care]. I just remembered some of these girls had product upon product upon product. And I was like, ‘What the hell is this?’ Before, when I was living in Minnesota, I think I probably just put body lotion on my face,” recounted Becca, who now lives in Los Angeles. “I hate to admit that, but I honestly think that’s what I did.”
The franchise star — who went on to lead “The Bachelorette” Season 14 in 2018 — said that her castmate Caroline Lunney was a big help in the beginning stages of her skin care education.
“Shout-out to Caroline who showed me, like, ‘OK, this is your first step, this is your second step.’ It wasn’t until my Hometown week, when I had a few days off in L.A. after my Hometown [with Arie Luyendyk Jr.], that I remember going to a CVS with one of the producers,” Becca said, revealing that she stocked up on products before the final Rose Ceremony. “We had a day off. That’s when I really actually started being more cognizant of what the hell should I be doing to my face. That was only three years ago!”
These days, Becca loves a good eye cream. “Undereye cream is my go-to,” she said. “Or the patches that you can keep in the fridge. It just makes you feel revitalized, especially the cold patches. It just gives you an extra kick in your morning and zaps you awake to get your day started.”
