Funnyman Aziz Ansari's beauty routing involves brushing his teeth and, from his telling, lots and lots of pomegranate seeds. As he jokes to Into the Gloss, "I purée pomegranate and do a pomegranate peel and leave that on for, like, two hours. I get up at five in morning to purée the pomegranate. I put that on my face and let it rest for a few hours, and take the pomegranate off." He also says he uses Kiehl's, but only "custom stuff just for Indian people that's not the market yet."
