Netflix's Cheer's Jerry Harris Is Full of Life, but His Beauty Routine Is Pretty Low-Key
Jerry Harris may be the best kind of extra on Netflix's Cheer, but it might surprise you to learn he's a little more low-key in his everyday life, especially during lockdown. In fact, despite spending a few years on one of the nation's top competitive university cheerleading teams — and what getting a clear look at the elaborate makeup routines of his former teammates might lead one to believe — Harris has actually never had much of beauty regimen.
"I just try to use natural products when I can, and I do my best to keep my skin clean and moisturise when I need to," he told POPSUGAR. "I don't use a lot of products, and I definitely don't use expensive things. I just try to look for things that are plant-based because I'm a less is more kind of person."
"I've been trying to be as healthy as I can be ever since the quarantine started."
That less-is-more attitude is what inspired the 20-year-old to partner with Schmidt's, an all-natural deodorant company, to encourage people to use this time at home to switch to aluminium-free products. Harris said that his own decision to make the change was prompted by his desire to add healthier ingredients to his wellness routine over the last few months.
"I've been trying to be as healthy as I can be ever since the quarantine started," he said. "Schmidt's really works, and I'm here to spread good vibes because I love it."
Transitioning from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant is up there on our list of not-so-cute beauty acts since it involves detoxing your underarms of the aluminium "plugs" in your glands that kept you from sweating, and it can take around two-to-four weeks to complete. But Harris noted that, as an athlete, he's a fan of Schmidt's Rose + Black Pepper Natural Deodorant because it actually works and takes a bit of that anxiety away.
"I legit smelled great even after my workouts," he said. "My entire family got in on making the switch after seeing how much I loved it, which was awesome."
