It’s no secret Mindy Kaling has amazing skin (and a great sense of humor, and fabulous style, if we’re making a list). And lucky for us, the actress is spilling all about the beauty products behind her glowing, camera-ready complexion. Even better? You can actually afford them!
The Mindy Project star shared some of her must-have drugstore products she uses to create one of her favorite DIY face masks in a hilarious Instagram selfie on Wednesday.
The two ingredients needed to make the at-home mask? Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, which Kaling used in the place of a facial toner for its acne-combating abilities, and then mixed it with Aztec Secret’s Indian Healing Clay to target her oily skin. Together the two ingredients (for a total of $11.74) make one mean mud mask, according to the star’s glam squad.
“Sometimes I put glop on my face for beauty reasons. This one was cheapo and fun to mix and really worked,” she captioned the mud mask snapshot. “I don’t get paid by them or anything! Just have mega oily skin and @clarisshair and @jankinjo recommended this on book tour. It works! Plus it makes me look frightening.” (See other stars who have experienced a similarly spooky effect with their own at-home face masks!)

We’re all about Kaling’s super-cheap, complexion-clearing formula because it’s a great at-home solution to a skincare issue almost everyone falls victim to — whether you’re a celebrity or not. And knowing the star shared the affordable DIY on her own accord (without being paid to do so) just makes us a fan of her even more.
