Swift opened up about her skincare routine in a 2011 interview with Allure. She says that she doesn't want her skin to be damaged from the sun. "I don't mind being pale. In high school, it seemed like everybody cared about being tan all year round, but I haven't really thought about it since then. I don't go to a tanning bed, and I get bored when I lay out. I put sunscreen on when I'm in the sun and sometimes I get tan, but I don't really think about it very much."


She Takes Care Of Her Hair

Swift shared her hair care secrets in her Allure interview. "My hair is naturally curly, so some days I just let it be. But when I wake up and my hair looks like a mess, I curl my hair by wrapping the hair around the curling iron to create a spiral look. I don't use any hair products because I have this fear of putting too much mousse in it or something and my hair ending up feeling crunchy."


She Doesn't Let People Stop Her


Swift has dealt with a lot of criticism over the years. But as she wrote in her hit single, she has learned to shake it off. Swift shared her advice for dealing with negativity in her Time Person Of The Year interview. "My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things," she said. "Keep making art … But I've also learned there's no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies. Trash takes itself out every single time."
