We all love a good face massage from time to time, and if you can’t quite make it to the spa, you can always give yourself one — just like actress Tracee Ellis Ross does before flying.

On Tuesday, the Black-ish star shared a video on Instagram, of herself carefully massaging her skin with upward smoothing motions and finger-tapping movements. “Still laughing at my preflight facial massage ritual,” she wrote in a caption. “U know I gotta hydrate!! This happens while in air and again before I land (by the way) and thank you @AdrianeJamison for capturing my madness.”


The 44-year-old actress has gone makeup-free on Instagram several times before, and her stunning skin doesn’t seem to need a drop of foundation or even concealer. In February, Ross expressed to Yahoo Beauty just how comfortable she is in her own skin, and how drawn she is to “a beauty that comes from within.”

She continued, “I’m drawn to this culture of beauty that’s an authentic expression of who people are. It makes me feel something. I get inspired by anything.”

Most would agree that Ross has amazing skin, and she has showed off her gorgeous glow on a number of red carpets. And her recent Instagram video demonstrates demonstrated that she takes her skin care very seriously, and makes time to nurture her skin whenever — and apparently, wherever.

If her self-care facial massage routine doesn’t inspire you, you can always get a fancy one done at a spa — to each her own! But we’re rolling with Ross’s DIY method on this one.
