After starring on Lifetime's Dance Moms for five years, Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler said good-bye to the show in May. What's next for the dancing duo? Let's just say #beauty. The newest back-to-school spokespeople for Clean & Clear sat down with us to spill about style, skin care and social media.

Best way to wake up

The girls agree: washing your face. They start the day with Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser ($5.50) for an instant boost.

Best way to prevent breakouts

Maddie strongly believes in cleansing after exercise to keep breakouts at bay. "We always use makeup remover wipes, then wash our faces as soon as we get home."

Best beauty advice

Their mother, Melissa, constantly reiterates one beauty rule and the sisters have learned to listen: "Never pick at pimples!"

Best makeup must-have

Concealer is key for both girls. Maddie opts for Urban Decay's Naked Skin Concealer ($28), while Mackenzie's favorite, when she doesn't borrow her sister's, is from Make Up For Ever.

Best DIY beauty

"A makeup artist taught me this when my skin was really dry and started peeling," says Maddie. "I needed to exfoliate, and I didn't have a product with me. She told me to take a little bit of sugar and a little bit of water or honey and mix it together. It really works—and it feels great!"

Best celeb inspo

The sisters get inspiration from a set of stylish friends. Mackenzie is a big fan of Kendall Jenner, while Maddie loves Gigi Hadid's casual flair.

Best Instagram account to follow

Maddie's faves are all makeup-focused. "I love HudaBeauty. She posts other people's videos too, so I find new people to follow from her page."
