Serena Williams is making the most of her free time during self-isolation by indulging in an afternoon skincare regime.

The tennis ace shared her beauty tips in an Instagram Stories video this week and explained to her followers how she's keeping her skin hydrated while trying to stay calm at home with her two-year-old daughter Olympia and husband Alexis Ohanian.

"I feel stressed out, obviously with everything, but I'm also calm and just really trying to do my thing, so I'm just going to do an afternoon cleanse," the 38-year-old told the camera.

She then revealed her "favourite" product was MZ Skin's Cleanse & Clarify cleanser, a multi-tasking formula which doubles up as a cleansing gel and a face mask. The exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and papaya fruit enzymes help unclog pores, even skin texture and renew lacklustre skin, and Serena applied it by mixing a small amount with water in her hand.

She then followed it with Rachel's Plan Bee Facial Cleansing Oil, which is rich in vitamin E, olive squalane and cranberry seed oil, and massaged the luxurious product into her skin.

"My skin is really moisturised and oiled," Serena told her followers.

While the tennis superstar gave her beauty tutorial, her daughter Olympia played with her mother's make-up at her own dressing table in the background.

"My daughter is actually doing her own make-up. I'm terrified to see what she's doing... Olympia, what have you done?" she exclaimed, as the tot revealed she had drawn on her face with lipstick and lip liner.

"You look cute. You like that? It's different," Serena told her daughter, prompting Olympia to sweetly reply: "I cute!"
