Health and beauty are so intertwined—do you have any wellness practices or favorite supplements that help give you a boost both mentally and physically?
I’ve always loved Taryn Toomey’s classes. It’s a movement class, but I find it’s very much about the mind and spirit as well. It just flows in such an incredible way, and I’m usually able to take something away from the experience that’s pretty uplifting. Or it helps me feel what I need to feel at that given time.
As far as supplements, I’ve been really into products from The Beauty Chef. I love adding the Hydration ($50) or Collagen Boosts ($50) to my water. Its Glow Inner Beauty Powder ($40) is also really great for the skin.
You’ve recently entered your 50s—what’s your approach to aging, and what about this decade is most exciting to you?
Just being so in my body is exciting to me. I finished a film recently that required huge amounts of physical exertion, so I’m pretty proud of myself and quite willing to give myself a pat on the back for that! There were times where I thought, “Wow, this is really hard,” and I wasn’t sure I could do it. And I just think you have to embrace the aging process. There are going to be good days, and there are going to be bad days. You just have to know that it’s a constant wave we need to ride and navigate. And hey, if you feel shitty about yourself once in a while, that’s normal and par for the course. But there are also going to be times when you feel good and like you’re managing it okay. Yes, I sometimes wish I didn’t have these lines around my mouth or chin, but my mind feels so much sturdier than it did in my 20s.
What’s your Unfiltered beauty philosophy in seven words or less?
Oh god, haha, I don’t know if I can do it in seven words! I just feel like beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and therefore, it’s subjective. I also think it is something to be discovered. Beauty has to have a lasting effect in order to be meaningful. Authenticity is so powerful. When you see a beautiful picture on the page of a magazine, you do connect with it, but then if you meet that person and they’re not living up to that picture, that original connection goes away instantly. Beauty has to be something you can discover beyond the surface.
