Jennifer Aniston hasn’t aged a day since she was making us all jealous of her hair as Rachel from Friends. And much of that is down to her skin.
The 46-year-old still boasts that radiant glow she had back when she first started out, and we’ve always wanted to know how. So what’s her secret? Well, simplicity.
Yep, Jen has said time and time again that she reckons too many women overcomplicate their skincare regime, whereas she’s more of a fan of finding a basic routine that works, and sticking to it. *Throws away our 15 bottles of serums/face oils*.
‘Women have to find what works for their own skin and I don’t think you really need to take a lot of time to have a great skin care regime’, she says.
‘I think simple is best. Use what works. I have been using Aveeno for years and years and that’s because of its wonderful ingredients. Wash your face. Drinks lot of water. Sleep. Eat right. All the basics.’
So what does she actually put on that gorgeous visage? The actress admits that she’s been using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub every night after a make-up artist on set of one of her films years ago gave her a bottle. And even better, it’s only £3. YES YOU HEARD US.
And while we’ve all heard of snail serums and placenta facials, Jennifer is more into putting something slightly more palatable on her face. Turns out she’s a massive fan of the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion, which is made out of (wait for it). Oatmeal. Yep, this is totally a thing.
‘Oats are very healthy’, Jen says. ‘We eat oatmeal because it is a well-balanced breakfast thanks to the ingredients in the oat – it has antioxidants, it has lipids, it has vitamins. All things that are great for your skin.
‘Find a lotion with oats; they’re incredibly hydrating.’ Looks like our breakfast cereal just got multi-functional!
Jen’s favourite moisturiser is enriched with naturally active Colloidal Oatmeal, which promises to help nourish and condition skin.
Other than her beauty products, Aniston also has a very simple explanation for her ageless, youthful complexion.
‘My dad is 100 percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle’, she’s previously told Yahoo Beauty. ‘And neither does my grandmother, who was 95 when she died. But it’s also just water, drinking a lot of water, using really nice good products for your face. Don’t overproduct, that’s the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important.’
