“I always FaceTime Jonathan Van Ness for tips,” Aly shared with People. “He’s been really helping me with my skin, since it’s always up and down because of traveling and stress.”

Aly continued: “He’s so sweet and very passionate about skincare. He gives me great tips like to hydrate or use a certain mask. But he’ll also remind me not to worry because there’s more important things than skincare and says, ‘You look beautiful. You’re gorgeous.’ It’s a nice balance.”

Aly went on to say she follows Jonathan‘s advice about going makeup-free on her days off.

“It’s important for me to be used to wearing no makeup in my everyday life to help with self-confidence,” Aly explained. “Most of the time, when I’m not at events, I don’t wear makeup. I think that has been really helpful for my confidence.”
