We can never get enough of non-toxic, green beauty tips here at Peaceful Dumpling, especially when those tips are coming from the glossy celebrity world. Consider it a guilty pleasure…that just happens to yield gorgeous, healthy skin!
Who What Wear recently broke down the clean beauty routine of actress Naomi Watts (whose impeccable complexion speaks for itself), and we are all ears. Watts is the cofounder of Onda, a destination for luxe clean beauty, so she’s no stranger to high-quality, non-toxic self-care.
As it turns out, Watts keeps her nightly routine to five products or under, and each product packs in multiple skin-loving ingredients. Meanwhile, her daytime skincare focused on protecting her peaches and cream complexion protected from the elements with a few key products. In other words, Naomi Watts has mastered an efficient, effective regimen. Here’s how she keeps her skin supple and clear with an unmistakable fairy-tale glow!
How Naomi Watts Protects Her Fair Complexion
She employs a heavy-hitter mineral sunscreen.
Whether or not you’re fair-complected like Naomi Watts, your skin will thank you for slathering on the SPF (on your bod, too!). Yes, sunscreen can be messy, and it can take a good minute to really work it into your skin so you don’t have giant white patches, but the process is worth it. A high-quality sunscreen will protect your skin from burns, premature aging, collagen damage, sun spots, and even reduce your risk of skin cancer. A moisturizing formula (like Watts’s favorite, Suntegrity) will also act as a hydrating lotion. Suntegrity, for example, includes aloe and green tea as its first ingredients–so it soothes and protects skin in ways additional to good ole SPF.
“I love Suntegrity sunscreen. I get the sun protection I need without the harsh chemicals.”
Her tinted moisturizer multi-tasks.
Watts uses Beautycounter Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer hydrates skin, provides SPF 20, and packs a potent antioxidant punch with ingredients like black currant, peony-root extract, and vitamin C.
“If you want a nice even glowing tone with just enough coverage but that still lets the skin breathe, the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer is my absolute favorite. Let’s also not forget the SPF, which is a necessary bonus! The lip and cheek colors are beautiful and have such a lovely smooth texture as well. I love this makeup!”
Naomi Watts’s Streamlined Evening Routine for Glowing Skin
She knows the power of retinol.
Watts uses a natural beauty favorite, Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Night Serum, a beautifying formula with damage-reserving retinol, and vitamins A, C, and E. This potent blend can boost the health of both acnegenic and aging skin—and let’s face it, many of us are combatting both at one point or another.
She bucks inflammation with a CBD-infused serum.
Perhaps the most intriguing product in Watts’s line-up, Saint Jane Luxury CBD Beauty Serum performs many functions. It fights inflammation with 500 milligrams of full-spectrum whole-plant CBD while boosting glow with cold-pressed grape-seed and avocado oils and extracts of sea buckthorn, rose hip, pomegranate, and calendula.
She doesn’t play around when it comes to hydrating her skin.
Watts uses a deeply hydrating cream from Joanna Vargas’ line. Designed to fight the signs of aging, it includes shea and cocoa butter along with oat protein, jojoba oil, aloe vera, and Coenzyme Q10.
“I like to mix the Saint Jane in with my Joanna Vargas Daily Hydrating Cream for deep hydration in the evening.”
