Sometimes a product delivers results so good its life-changing, or at the very least changes the quality of your skin.
“I do love organic products but I have to say that SK-II changed my life. I’ve had problem skin my whole entire life, and hilariously at 44 years old – I’m 45, going to be 46 next month – I finally found a product that literally changed my skin,” she told Into The Gloss.
Now she swears by a cocktail of SK-II products that she applies religiously every morning, using the LXP Ultimate Revival Essence while she’s in the steam, rinsing it off with the Facial Treatment Cleanser before applying the Cellumination AuraBright Illuminating Essence and Essential Power Moisturising Cream. In the evenings, she relies on their Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil to remove the makeup put on on set.
It’s an investment in her skin that the actress considers an alternative to botox.
“I have done Botox before, and I can see why you’d get addicted to it. So I thought, if I have to see my lines, it’ll force me more to take care of myself,” she said.
While she’s passionate about organic beauty, Pompeo justifies her use of other products with a good reason -a refreshing (and relatable) honesty that can often be missing from celebrity beauty regimens.
“I guess because I make my living on camera, I’m vain? I think it’s important for me to look as good as I can look. I get paid to keep up my appearance, so I feel like I need to keep up my end of it. I feel like I’ve always looked younger than I am, and now I’ve started seeing my skin change.” she said. (Post continues after gallery.)
