When it comes to skincare, Minnie Driver has her routine down pat.
The actress is passionate about caring for her complexion and abides by a strict evening routine, involving multiple steps.
And luckily for us, Minnie has detailed some of her best tips in a video for Harper’s Bazaar. Read on for some top takeaways from her tutorial.
Try an oil-based cleanser
Minnie begins her routine by using Tatcha’s The Camellia Cleansing Oil to remove every last scrap of make-up from her face.
“I can’t really be dealing with foaming cleansers that feel like they strip my skin. This turns into a sort of milk and is really, really lovely. Really hydrating,” she insisted. “I feel like I scrubbed my face for years (to take the make-up off) before I realised you can use these lovely oils. It is kind of amazing. It takes off make-up, it takes off everything.”
Double up on serums
After swiping on Yon-Ka’s Lotion, a type of face mist, the star adds a layer of Biologique Recherche’s Serum Extraits Tissulaires while her skin is still damp, and then adds ENVIRON’s Youth EssentiA C-QUENCE Serum.
“It’s this extraordinary base serum, it goes into my skin and feeds it. Joanna Czech, who is my facialist and turns me onto a lot of these products, swears by this,” she said of the Biologique Recherche formula.
Don’t waste any product
“I always use the end of whatever I’ve used on my face, I always try to remember to put it onto my hands. As they’re exposed more to the sun and the elements,” noted Minnie, adding that she also uses Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Super Anti-Aging Hand Cream.
Switch-up your moisturisers
Minnie swears by using Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream in winter and swapping over to Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream in the warmer months.
“I can’t live without Augustinus Bader’s rich cream. There’s a lot of hype about this and it’s all true. It is completely and utterly amazing. I’ve found that both these products even out and I’ve seen a lot less of the dark spots that I get,” she added.
