You probably know Shawn Johnson East as an awe-inspiring, Olympic gold-winning gymnast, but the petite superstar has branched out well beyond her back-flipping pedigree. And we're not just talking about Instagram, where she has 2.7 million followers: The former champion is now an author, a YouTuber with over 1.1 million subscribers, a Nike trainer, and a podcaster. And, as a new mom, she has also been an outspoken advocate speaking out against the stigmas associated with things like miscarriages and bottlefeeding.

Another thing Johnson has been vocal about? Her love of skin care, though she's admittedly minimal when it comes to makeup. In keeping with that, Johnson recently got into the beauty game by teaming up with probiotic-fueled skin care brand Tula and launching a scrub inspired by her mother's pumpkin bread recipe. To find out more, we asked Johnson to share her five can't-live-without beauty products.

"I switch between a couple different oil cleansers, but this is my consistent favorite. I start with the Elemis Cleansing Balm to break down any makeup and buildup — it leaves my skin feeling clean without stripping it. It's my go-to recommended product for people to try, because it works with all skin types."

"My current favorite part of my routine is my So Pumpkin Exfoliating Sugar Scrub that I created with TULA. It's a super gentle sugar scrub that exfoliates my skin, leaving it feeling super smooth. I am obsessed with everything pumpkin-related, and this scrub smells SO good."
