Drew Barrymore wears special lotion-infused gloves to clean her house.
For the latest instalment of her “beauty junkie” videos on Instagram, the Hollywood actress/entrepreneur highlighted her new drugstore find – Aveeno’s Repairing CICA Hand Mask with Prebiotic Oat and Shea Butter.
But Drew doesn’t wear the hand masks while sitting back and watching TV, as she prefers to swap them for regular gloves when it comes to tidying up her home.
“Beauty Junkie week discovery – we are doing dishes with Aveeno hand gloves on,” the star told her 13 million followers as she zoomed in on her assistant, who was wearing the same hand masks. “And I just cleaned out the garbage!”
Drew proceeded to show fans how she also cleaned her daughter’s bathtub while wearing the gloves and vacuumed her living room. After completing her various tasks, the 45-year-old removed the masks and revealed soft and hydrated hands.
“Clean and moisturised! That’s what I call a two-fer,” she gushed.
Drew’s video quickly racked up over 825,000 views, with fans praising her down-to-earth approach to social media.
“You are so real! Thank you!” one wrote, while another added: “Love how you’re like all of us women, cleaning in our favourite sweatshirt, no make-up, and able to laugh along the way!”
A pair of Aveeno’s Repairing CICA Hand Masks is priced at $2.99 (£2.60). Designed for single use, the paraben-free and fragrance-free masks work in 10 minutes and don’t require any rinsing after removal.

Jennifer Aniston dislikes it when women are described as “looking good for their age”.
The Morning Show actress takes great interest in protecting her health and skin, often sharing details of her daily regime in interviews.
But while Jennifer is known for her flawless complexion, in a chat for Glamour.com, she explained that she is tired of hearing outdated perceptions regarding beauty over and over again.
“Beauty at any age is beautiful. I think we’re taking better care of ourselves these days,” she told the publication. “We’re learning more about our internal health, and that reflects itself on our outer health and beauty. I think the cliches of, ‘Oh my God, you look great for your age,’ is kind of an old paradigm that doesn’t exist anymore.”
Jennifer went on to note that she thinks women who want to let their hair go grey should be unafraid to do so. Yet, she is not ready to turn away from her signature brunette tresses with golden highlights just yet.
“I think it’s personal choice. I don’t think there’s any taboo. I mean, I think if we create one (then there will be), because that’s what people like to do-create a narrative and a headline – but I think if people want to go grey, look, go grey. It’s just I don’t want to,” the 50-year-old commented.
Elsewhere, Jennifer named Aveeno moisturiser and sunscreen as her go-to skincare products, and noted that she also loves Dr. Hauschka’s lip balm and Shu Uemura’s hair masks. But her top rules for looking good revolve around water and sleep.
“Without sleep your body’s not restoring its cells and getting rest. And if you’re not hydrating, you shrivel up like an old prune. They’re so important,” she insisted.

Jennifer Aniston is “obsessed” with learning about the ingredients in her skincare products.
The Friends star, who is back in the spotlight thanks to her new Apple+ TV programme The Morning Show, has had her fair share of beauty mishaps over the years that have prompted her to look into the science of her formulas.
“We are sold such a bill of goods wrapped up in expensive packaging, but I have found that when it comes to a skincare routine, the simpler the better,” she told Vogue.com. “I’m obsessed with the science bit. I find it very interesting and working with beauty brands like Aveeno helped me to learn that there are so many chemicals in products that really aren’t good for skin.”
Through a process of trial and error, Jennifer has learned to avoid extreme skincare treatments, and just heads for the sun to give her that dewy glow.
“I had a laser treatment about 10 years ago that just bloodied my face for about a month,” the 50-year-old shared. “It was way too aggressive and that’s when I realised that what might work in the short term can be damaging in the long run. I still sit in the sun… you need that vitamin D for a glow and your mood.”
However, Jennifer is aware of the sun damage risks and sticks to skin-friendly products in order to fake that glow.
“I have become a fan of body bronzers and spray tans,” she added.
Elsewhere in the interview, the actress revealed that she is also a fan of eye masks and cryo sticks.
“Another good one that my facialist taught me is just get a bowl of ice water and splash your face 25 times. It’s an old school trick that Joan Crawford used to do – it just wakes your skin up,” Jennifer insisted.
