Jen Garner has a lot on her plate. She’s a mum to three kids, coordinates a blended family with her ex Ben Affleck and his partner (who you might’ve heard of), Jennifer Lopez, while also living up to her reputation of being the sweetest woman in showbiz (is it the dimples?). So it’s no wonder that when it comes to her nighttime skin care routine, the actress likes to keep things simple.
Simple enough, in fact, that it centres around one inexpensive drugstore cleansing product: Neutrogena Daily Gentle Wash ($13.99, currently $6.99 at Chemist Warehouse). Speaking to Well and Good, Jennifer painted a picture of just how much she relies on this hydrating wash, as the brand ambassador revealed she keeps a bottle in “every single bathroom in [her] house.”
Speaking of the dermatologist-recommended drugstore cleanser, Jen said: “It’s such a no-brainer, because it doesn’t dry you out.” This is primarily due to its soap-free, hypoallergenic formulation, which is enriched with soothing chamomile, geranium, and moisturising glycerin.
Although some celebs swear by their 10-step routines, Jennifer’s beauty regimen revolves around a few key components. The first? Regular cleansing: “I never skip a face wash.” And the second is the inclusion of two active ingredients: hyaluronic acid and retinol. Jen described the anti-ageing and hydrating duo as the “two ingredients that can really change your skin.”
After cleansing, she follows with a retinol serum, like the BOOST LAB Retinol Night Renewal Serum ($29.95, Adore Beauty), then finishes off using the best-selling Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser ($26.99 currently $13.99 at Chemist Warehouse), which contains a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid. “I’ll put it on my face and decolletage, then turn my phone off and go to bed,” says Jennifer.
So there you have it. Could this be the simplest skin care routine in Hollywood?
