Kate Walsh, 54, shares her skincare routine and must-have products
Let her play an American overseas in Emily in Paris or bring back her Addison Montgomery character in Grey’s Anatomy, Kate Walsh always looks fabulous. So when we got the chance, we asked the actress to share her skincare routine, as well as her workouts (weight and circuit training, Pilates, ballet, walking) and her self-care practices (meditation, hanging out with pets, being in nature).
“I tend to have dry skin, so I’ve always been passionate about moisturizing, using body oils and creams,” Walsh said. women’s day. She uses Biologique Recherche P50 as a base for her face, as well as BIOEFFECT EGF Serum. For her body, she uses Crepe Erase to treat crepe skin. “It’s really amazing because it targets that specific symptom, rather than just hydrating,” said Walsh, who was recently named the brand’s celebrity ambassador along with fellow actress Jane Seymour.
When it comes to budget-friendly skincare products in her regimen, she loves Watts Beauty’s “super affordable” hyaluronic acid ($15). “I use it in conjunction with any type of serum, oil or cream for my face in particular, to lock in moisture.” She calls the Elizabeth Arden Oil Miracle All-Over Eight-Hour Cream ($29) “magic” for her dry skin, summer or winter. “It’s all about hydration,” says the star. “I’m a big fan of basics and simplicity and the fact that you don’t have to spend a fortune to keep your skin hydrated, healthy and beautiful.”
When asked to share the biggest lesson she’s learned since turning 50, the 54-year-old says that by accepting change, for her, “life gets better and better; I become more more conscious and wiser”.
“This idea that we’re supposed to stay the same, or stay the way we were when we were 20 until when we’re 30, when we’re 40, when we’re 50 – that’s just a mistake.” Walsh stresses the importance of listening to what’s going on in your body and making changes where necessary, “whether it’s skin care or hair care, getting enough sleep, or just changes that occur or have occurred physically [as you age].”
That’s just one of the reasons she partnered with Systane Complete preservative-free lubricating eye drops, which she uses daily to combat dry eyes. “It’s something that’s very common as we get older. And just like how I moisturize my skin and take care of my hair and my body, it’s just this thing that I do for my eyes,” Walsh said.
To note: Always consult your doctor before trying any new eye drops.
She notes that “noto you’re really told what it’s like to grow old – but it’s pretty fabulous if you go with the flow and make the changes you need to take care of yourself. Every challenge, in many ways, after 50 years has also been a great gift. It’s just more information on how to take better care of myself and live well.”
