Beauty icon Nicole Kidman reveals her skincare routine

A busy mum who spends a lot of time in the makeup chair for her work on set, Nicole Kidman focuses on nourishing and protective skincare.

The creamy-skinned actor never steps foot out of the house without an SPF. “In the morning I smother, smother sunscreen on,” she told Allure. “I’m outside a lot and love exercising outdoors but I don’t like the sun on my skin because it’s very fair.”

“I always make sure I have some sort of deodorant or perfume [in my bag] because I like to smell good. I change [the perfume] all the time, but I really like amber. I think amber-based scents are really beautiful… I also like Kiehl’s Musk Oil.”

From left to right: Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, $60. Kiehl’s Original Musk EDT, $89. Kérastase Discipline Oléo-Curl Idéal, $48.

At night, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair is her go-to for keeping her skin smooth and the tone even. “I just really love to have healthy, moist skin,” she explained.

“Probably because I have to wear a lot of makeup when I work, the idea of having clean skin and letting it just be as it is, is very appealing – even though my girls love when I put makeup on. They’re always like, ‘Put some makeup on, Mummy!’”

La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream, $505. QVS Curl Wonder Eyelash Curler, $15.99. Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair, $48.99.
