Ahead of co-hosting “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” from her home city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Roselyn Sanchez is getting camera-ready with the help of a few key beauty essentials.
“There’s this Mint Soufflé Cleanser from Ráya ($46), a spa in Los Angeles, [that] I’ve been using every single day of my life for like 25 years,” the 48-year-old star told Page Six Style.
“I can’t go to sleep until I use it. And listen, I’m not young, and I’m blessed. I don’t look my age.”
To create HD-ready skin, Sanchez will also reach for her preferred foundation: Pat McGrath Labs Sublime Perfection ($68).
“It’s the best. It’s flawless, it’s beautiful,” she raved of the cult-favorite product.
And growing up on a tropical island taught Sanchez a thing or two about how to humidity-proof her hair — namely, with the help of a good smoothing treatment.
“My hair is naturally very curly,” she revealed. “So this is all keratin and a good blow dry from my hair guy. I always say I have very talented hair: I can have it straight, I can have it curly, I can have it all.”
The “Fantasy Island” actress told us she’s planning to “squeeze in two” outfit changes during tonight’s telecast, which will see her leading the first-ever Spanish countdown to the new year.
“I’m so lucky and so blessed,” Sanchez said of her historic gig. “I love my island; people [here] have known me working on TV since I was 19 years old … they follow my career and they support it. So I’m not going to do them wrong.”
Fresh off her Latin Grammys hosting gig in November, she’s also committed to continuing the fight for more Latino representation in Hollywood.
“Listen, it’s getting better,” she said. “There’s a lot of room for improvement, to be honest with you. Now we’re getting to have more Latinos in positions of power and [as] showrunners … so little by little, the doors are opening. But come on, we are a big percentage of this country! We deserve it. And we thrive when we’re given the opportunity.”
“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” airs Friday at 8 p.m. on ABC. Daddy Yankee will join Sanchez for a musical performance from Puerto Rico, with Ryan Seacrest hosting the annual Times Square countdown in New York City with Liza Koshy. Ciara and Billy Porter will anchor in Los Angeles and New Orleans, respectively.
