Grande talked about her skincare routine in an interview with Vogue. She says that she does her routine each morning. "I don't have any strict rituals – if I think of the word 'ritual', I picture someone running through the house with sage… which happens, but not every morning! I immediately brush my teeth first thing. Then skincare is next."

Grande has a busy schedule. However, she always makes time to relax. She shared her favorite ways to unwind with Vogue. "I love meditation, taking a long bath and doing my skincare. Anything that feels like you're giving yourself that moment of care and committing to it, whether that's skincare before bed or a bath. Whenever I meditate, I use lavender essential oils – it immediately triggers calmness."


She Makes Wellness A Priority

For Grande, wellness and health is a priority. She tells Vogue, "I think wellness is an important investment. We should be taking care of our minds. They are the centre of our whole human experience. I feel so fortunate to be able to have amazing therapy, and to have meditation [that works for me]."


She's Learning About Skincare

In her interview with Vogue, Grande talked about the process of developing r.e.m beauty. She says that she wants to learn as much about skincare as she can. "I'm still learning as I go. I love skincare so much. I'm really fascinated by coolness in skincare. I love our new Undereye Balm so much for that reason – it's cold, refreshing and energising. I love to put it in the fridge along with my face roller – it's calming."


She Eats Healthy

Grande is one of the many clients of celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternaak. He talked about working with Grande to Shape Magazine. Pasternaak says that Grande makes sure to eat a healthy diet. "No matter what your workout routine is, if you're eating poorly, it's all for naught," he explains. "Ariana loves, soups, smoothies, and salads, which are all great foods for anyone who is short on time."

For Grande, her wellness routine has to be sustainable. "She's not about going to any extremes," Pasternaak revealed to Shape Magazine. "She isn't worried about doing anything that's not sustainable. As long as she moves every day, eats well, and does some strength training, she's of the mindset that the rest will take care of itself."


She Works Out On Her Own

While Grande does workout sessions with Pasternaak, she also exercises when she's on her own. "Other times I'll give her exercises to do at home on her own," Pasternaak told Shape Magazine. "She also hits her steps every day and has done a really great job of finding balance and moderation when it comes to staying in shape."
