Men's Skincare Advice From a Beautiful Woman: Adrianne Palicki

The FNL Star Shares her Best Tips

The other night, I attended a party thrown by Axe here in New York, launching the brand’s new skincare line. The grooming brand has done a lot in the past year or so to move beyond their bro-beginnings to offer solid, respectable-smelling products for the drugstore aisle shoppers, and this new line suggests they’re intent on continuing those efforts.

I had the chance to speak with Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki, on hand for the event, about what she looks for in a guy’s grooming habits. Because, hey, I can’t be the only girl you get advice from, right?

Below, Palicki’s best men’s skincare advice:

On why guys should take care of their skin:

“You don’t understand why guys can’t do it – at least do it for us. How many times do you get chafing [from a guy’s beard]? You don’t even have to get rid of the scruff, just make it softer.”

On her last boyfriend upping her face wash game:

“My last boyfriend was actually much better about his skincare regimen than I was. He’d say, ‘I can’t believe you look as nice as you do when you use whatever’s around. You can’t just use face soap’.”

(…At which point we devolved into a conversation of the best eye makeup removers, which I won’t bog you down with…)

On why there’s no excuse for not smelling good:

“It’s so simple. You smell good, and that means we want to jump on you. And that’s important too. That’s what guys should be thinking about when they’re thinking about face care products.”

And of course, I couldn’t let her get away without asking the most important question of all:

What do you think (FNL character) Tim Riggins’s skincare routine would be?

“Well I can say, I know firsthand – it’s absolutely nothing! Seriously, that kid got so into the character, he wouldn’t even wash his hair. But he could look good with a trash bag on. He’s very pretty.”

Guhh, I love her so much you guys. I mean, be honest, Tyra always seemed like she’d be way more fun to hang out with than Lila Garrity right? Really, Buddy’s clearly the superior Garrity. I even liked Buddy Jr. He seemed like he knew how to have a good time.

My point is: now I want to see Taylor Kitsch in a trash bag.
