Nicole Kidman during filming of The Undoing

I know I am a little behind with all the new shows that we can stream these days, but I just finished The Undoing and Big Little Lies and I was just simply amazed at how youthful Nicole Kidman still looks. 

So, I went digging to find out what her secret is.

While some celebrities choose to remain tight-lipped about their beauty secrets, luckily for us, Nicole Kidman is not one of those.

From the red carpet to the big screen, she is always flaunting a flawless and ageless complexion, so we would be amiss not to listen to what she has to say.

Even though she has admitted to trying Botox, once she gained the ability to move her face again, she decided it wasn’t for her.

So, if it isn’t Botox, then what is she doing? Keep reading to find out!

She starts from the inside out

According to Allure, she believes in taking vitamins and supporting her skin with inside health. So she reaches for Swisse Skin Hair Nails and also Swisse Multivitamins to help fill any gaps that her diet may lack.

She told Allure that she had a hard time with her nails breaking until she started taking the skin, hair, and nails supplement.

Also, she has stated that she will eat just about anything, but she follows an 80-20 diet. She makes 80% of what she eats healthy, such as whole grains, lean protein, and fresh fruit and vegetables.

The other 20% would be fried foods, processed foods, and sugars.

Moderation is the only secret when comes to her diet.

She stays active

Growing up with a family of marathon runners taught her the importance of staying active and fit. Although she didn’t run in the marathons, she does enjoy running.

To keep her body long and lean, she does yoga, and for cardio, not only does she run, but walking, swimming, spinning, and different sports activities with her family keep her active.

Not only will exercise help with keeping fit and trim, but it also helps skin stay youthful and vibrant.

By exercising, you increase blood flow, and with increased blood flow, you help nourish the skin because the blood carries nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells.

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen

According to Forbesthis is an “uncompromising rule” for her, which is understandable, since she has fair skin. Her parents apparently instilled in her as a child to be serious about sun protection.

While she’s out running or swimming, she’s wearing Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 and will reapply it often.

What many may think of as normal aging, is more than likely damage from the sun. Sun exposure causes damage to the elastin, which then leads to sagging, stretching, and the inability of the skin to bounce back after stretching.

Not to mention the sun will also cause skin cancer!

Even if it’s cloudy out, wear your sunscreen.

She keeps her skin hydrated

In an interview with Allure, she was asked what beauty products were always in her medicine cabinet.

Her answer: “La Mer Creme is my go-to, but I also love Aquaphor.”

La Mer Creme is a hydrating gel cream that is formulated with cell-renewing Miracle Broth and antioxidant Lime Tea, which will lift, firm, heal dryness, and enhance elasticity. It’s also great for sensitive skin in soothing redness and irritation.

I can understand why she would use Aquaphor because it is great for healing dry skin. If you apply it after your moisturizer, it locks in the moisture.

Also, staying hydrated has become an important part of her routine. Her husband, being a singer, drinks a lot of water to help his vocal cords, and he taught her how important it is to stay flushed out and hydrated.

She uses retinol

You have probably seen the commercials where she’s advertising Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Face Moisturizer.

She has sensitive skin and even though the moisturizer is packed with retinol, it’s gentle enough that she uses it every day.

However, if you haven’t used a product with retinol before, start slowly. You only use it at night and always wear sunscreen.

Seratopical Revolution is her biggest secret

As a Sera Labs affiliate purchases made through links may earn me a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Well, I wouldn’t really call it a secret. I mean, she’s a brand ambassador and strategic partner for Seratopical Revolution. She has been working with the brand, Sera Labs, since 2020.

What is Seratopical Revolution? 

It’s alcohol-free, natural, and clean plant-based skincare. They have a patented delivery system, P3P Complex, that provides such deep absorption allowing the ingredients to work from the inside out. Those ingredients include plant-based collagen, hyaluronic acid, and licorice root extract.

The best part about this brand, unlike other brands celebrities usually endorse, is that its products aren’t outrageously priced. They are actually affordable!

Take one of Nicole’s favorites, for instance, the Adoring Advanced Eye Formulation. She has described it as “luxurious and effective”, according to Prevention. 

And it’s under $40!

If you are questioning how to get rid of fine lines, crow’s feet, puffiness, wrinkles, or under-eye bags, this eye treatment is the answer. I mean, it has to be for Nicole Kidman to be using it, right?

Has your skin been looking a little dull and needs a pick-me-up? Like Nicole, you could reach for Gleaming Brightener with Licorice Root Extract and the Award Winning Harmony Face & Neck Toner

Not only will Gleaming Brightener fade dark spots and age spots, but it also helps regenerate collagen and elastin, making your skin more supple. Also under $40!

Harmony Face & Neck Toner is a spritz of antioxidants, with a lovely vanilla scent, that you can use after cleansing, setting your makeup, or as a refresher during the day. This one is just $25!

Also vanilla-scented is the Clarity Foaming CleanserIt’s important to have a cleanser that will nourish and won’t strip your skin of its essentials, especially if you have dry skin or uneven tone. Also only $25!

Sear Labs Biggest Skincare Breakthrough

It’s their DNA ComplexDNA stands for Deep Nano Actives, which is patent pending.

This formula instantly lifts and smooths, without tightness and residue, while continuing to work for lasting results. The Deep Nano Actives take the ingredients to work deep into the skin instead of them just sitting on top.

The formula was part of Nicole Kidman’s skin prep when she was getting ready to present at the 95th Academy Awards. Her skin was, of course, flawless.

All the reviews they have received so far have given the DNA Complex 5 stars and would recommend it. One reviewer even said, “I started using DNA Complex 2 weeks ago and am now obsessed! I felt the tightening almost immediately. Absorbs quickly, lovely hydration, and no white residue.”
Another review said, “This product is a steal for what it does for my wrinkles. I can’t believe it’s under $100 and that I can see a difference within minutes of applying.”

To be honest, I have read the reviews on all the products and they were enough to convince me to try them. So, I ordered the Revolution Skincare Suite, which comes with Clarity Cleanser, Harmony Toner, Gleaming Brightener, Adoring Eye Formulation, Freedom Day & Night Moisturizer, and Radiant Face & Neck Serum. 

I also just had to buy the DNA Complex so I can see for myself how well it works. Keep an eye out because I will let you know!

Some celebrities are using this LED mask to stay youthful looking.

8 thoughts on “How Is Nicole Kidman Staying So Youthful?

  1. Sport is a good way to stay in shape.

    The choice of good moisturizer also maintains our beauty.

    Choosing certain foods can speed up the aging process due to their impact on various factors related to health and aging. Here are some ways certain foods can influence the aging process: Inflammation: Certain foods can promote inflammation in the body, which is linked to various chronic diseases and premature aging. Foods high in saturated fat, refined sugar, hydrogenated vegetable oils and food additives can contribute to inflammation. Oxidative stress: Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals, reactive chemicals, exceed the body’s ability to neutralize them. Certain foods, such as those high in saturated fat, sugar and food additives, can increase oxidative stress, which can damage cells and accelerate aging. Glycation: Glycation is a process in which sugars react with proteins and lipids, forming advanced glycation end products (AGEs). Foods high in sugar and starch, especially processed foods and sugary drinks, can contribute to glycation, which is linked to health problems and accelerated aging. Nutritional deficit: An unbalanced diet low in essential nutrients can lead to premature aging. Deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other important nutrients can affect the health of cells, skin, bones, and organs, contributing to accelerated aging. Stress: Chronic stress can also contribute to premature aging. Certain foods, like those high in caffeine and sugar, can make stress and anxiety worse, which can negatively impact health and longevity..

    So let’s make the right choices to keep our shape

    1. You seem quite knowledgeable about what food does to our bodies.

      In previous articles, I have written about this. The Mediterranean Diet is one of the best diets for staying healthy and youthful.

  2. Hello! Doing some research on facial skin care now because I’m in my late 40s and starting to see some spots and possible sun damage. I didn’t know you need multiple products to keep my skin healthy. Well I’m a guy and always looking for the one product that will do it all, but thanks to your info I’ll look into the other stuff recommended. Of all that’s listed, what would you say is the top 3 I should be applying? Thanks!

    1. It would be nice to have a product that could do it all and make your routine only one step, but unfortunately, there isn’t. At least yet. As for the top 3 to use, you should always cleanse, use a treatment serum, and moisturize. Do these steps day and night.

      Always wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days!

  3. I would definitely agree that Nicole Kidman has beautiful skin. You make some good points regarding the different items you must incorporate into you routine. I am pretty good with my routine but do fall short on sunscreen and retinol. The Seratopical seems to be an all inclusive skin care product that I will definitely research more about. Thanks for a great article. Brian

    1. To be honest, I am usually skeptical when a celebrity endorses a product. However, finding out that she is a partner and has stock in the company, along with using the products, made my decision to try them a lot easier.

      I have used them for a few days now, and I am pleased so far.

  4. I’m often envious of how the celebrities of today look so youthful. You’ve made some good points here about drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly and using sun cream, even on the cloudy days. When we’re young, we don’t appreciate the importance of looking after ourselves until we get to an age when we wish we’d done more.

    I drink a lot of water every day to keep my skin feeling and looking healthy and although i now battle with a troublesome age spot, I am constantly trying new products and I’m currently using a collagen cream. I think it’s improving my dark spot.

    A great article that we can all take note on the importance of taking good care of ourselves. Youthfulness really does come from within.

    1. While certain collagen creams are very good at moisturizing, and sometimes temporary plumping, unless they are collagen peptides, the collagen molecule is too big to absorb into your skin. That is why there may be temporary plumping because it’s just sitting on top of your skin.

      For your age spot, you can try applying some lemon juice. That is, if you don’t want to get a dark or age spot treatment.
