“It’s Olay’s highest concentration of peptides,” Hyland tells me before professing her undying passion for moisturizer in general. “I just love moisturizer. I love moisturizer so much. I drink a lot of water — almost a gallon, if not a gallon a day — so you would think that my skin would feel moisturized, but somehow I’m not. Every time I put on moisturizer in the morning or at night, it just like my skin’s a thirsty bitch — she’s just like, Give me more moisturizer. This feels amazing.“
Speaking of feeling amazing, Hyland is all about making her skin-care experience as enjoyable — and effective — as possible. “[The Collagen Peptide24 collection is] formulated to penetrate into your skin’s surface, but I just feel like by using a beauty roller, it penetrates it even more. And it feels like you’re giving your face a massage,” Hyland says, shouting out Nurse Jamie’s Uplift Massaging Beauty Roller. Another little enhancement she enjoys: chilled undereye patches. “I keep those in the fridge next to the salsa.”
At this point, I was like, if we’re going to talk about salsa, we can definitely talk about hair. So I had to ask her what she’s been doing to bring out the best in her curls. Her go-to products: In Common Magic Myst — she really appreciates the heat and UV protection is provides — and DevaCurl Supercream Coconut Curl Styler. “I only put those two products in my hair and scrunch, and then I use a diffuser,” she tells me. When I ask her if she ever air-dries, she’s more or less aghast. “Oh god, no. Because then I have no idea what’s going to happen.”
Hyland’s curls have been a target for cruel commenters on social media, as has her treatment-related weight fluctuation. But no matter what they say about how she looks, her confidence comes from an untouchable place: “Knowing your truth,” she says. “It really doesn’t matter what anybody else says. Of course it’s going to hurt, but let it affect you for five minutes, maybe 15 if it’s a really, really, really hurtful comment. But then just try to take a step back, look at the big picture, and just be confident and stand solid in your truth.”
