Lately, we’ve been digging and joining pieces for knowing the secret behind Eva Mendes’ timeless beauty, and voila, we now have the insights into her skincare routine. If you also want to know how she retains that teenage glow even when she’s so close to hitting 50, read on!
Keeping it simple is the key!
What is the first thing one does when performing their morning routine? Wash their face, right? Na-ah! Eva Mendes’ take on this is slightly different. In a Facebook Q&A, she revealed, “OK, so this may sound gross but I save time by not washing my face in the morning. It’s one less thing to do and I find that water is drying to my face.” Further, answering if she has an elaborate routine that helps her shine, she said, “Basically I have a quick routine that I stick to. I don’t overcomplicate with a ton of products. I do the same with make-up. I chose just three products as my staples and stick with them. And sleep!”
Eva Mendes is a big-time DIY person!
They say that oil is only good when used for hair. Eva Mendes disagrees. In a world full of chemical moisturizers, her choice is a natural one. She has been using coconut oil as her go-to product to give her skin the right nourishment.
Apart from this, she also revealed that she loves combining different things off her kitchen shelf and using it as a face scrub or exfoliator.
Diet and nutrition play a major role, says Eva Mendes
Apart from counting on natural products for her basic skincare routine, she also acknowledges the role nutrition plays in keeping the skin smooth and clear. In an interview with Shape, she said, “For me, glowing skin comes from the inside. I start to get sallow if I’m not eating well. I take fish oil supplements. I also drink a lot of water. I always keep a bottle with me and kind of force myself to drink. My skin just looks better when I’m hydrated.”
A ‘golden’ wand worth $20 that Eva Mendes swears by
Facial massage trends are on the rise and Hollywood’s queen, Mendes, has also given into it. She recently made a post on Instagram appreciating an all-women army behind one of her favourite skincare product: The Golden Wand. This v-shaped roller is known for improving blood circulation and leaving the skin calm and glowing.
So, looks like Eva Mendes has managed to keep her skin looking fresh as the morning dew by keeping her routine simple and basic while having some calming rituals of her own!
