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 Forbes, this 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
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

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!
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?
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 Cleanser. It’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
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!
