As the years tick by, we may not always feel older, but when we look in the mirror, we definitely notice a change in our skin. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for the most effective products and techniques to help us look and feel younger longer.
Ever notice how some celebrities never seem to age? They look just about the same as they did 20 years ago. It doesn’t seem fair or even possible, so it can be easy to assume that their age-defying complexion might be more than good genes.
For some celebrities, makeup and photoshop may be their secrets, but not for all. We’ve seen plenty of celebrities in photos without makeup or in paparazzi shots that certainly weren’t photoshopped. Reese Witherspoon is one of these celebrities.
At 43 years old, Witherspoon seriously doesn’t look any older than she did when she graced the screen as Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde.” What’s her secret?
Thankfully, the actress has let the internet in on her nighttime beauty routine, and it’s actually not that complicated. In a video that she posted on Instagram, the star, donning a white bathrobe, showed us her three-step process: cleanse, massage and peel.
In the video, Witherspoon pulls her hair back before applying her favorite cleanser with a cotton ball. She uses Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil, and she says, “It takes off all my makeup and it makes my skin so soft and moisturized.”
Then, she moved on to massaging her skin with a massager by Nurse Jamie. She simply rubs it gently around her face. While you may be tempted to skip a massager, keep in mind that it can help with blood flow which helps skin look young. The star adds, “I do it in the morning too a little bit…It helps me get rid of the dark circles in the morning.”
For the final on-camera step, Witherspoon shows us the Prevage 4 Time System. She says, “It’s like having a peel but at home.”
While she didn’t show us her favorite moisturizer, Witherspoon does mention that it’s important not to forget moisturizer at night. Hopefully she’ll share her current favorite in another video.
The best part about the actress’s skincare routine is that all the products she uses are available online. No need to make a special trip to Beverly Hills. No matter where you live, in theory, you can have skin as age-defying as hers.
