After careful consideration, we think we can safely make the claim that Halle Berry is aging backward, Benjamin Button
-style. How else to explain her glowing, line-free visage?
Halle, care to weigh in? "I think [great] skin is really genetic. My dad has great, great beautiful skin," she says. "I think there are things that we can do to make good and bad skin better. But I think the real quality, texture, and luminosity of skin is [in] genetics. And you can affect it by what you eat, drink or whether you smoke or do drugs. I use a line called Kinara created by Olga Northrup. She has a spa that’s really close to my house and I’ve used her products for about 15 years."
While she may look perfect, it is refreshing to know that Halle struggles with some of the same beauty quandaries as the rest of us. When asked about her beauty essentials, she replied, "Face powder, as I’m a shiny mess, and a lip [treatment]. I have a bad habit of chewing my lips and without something on there, I just chew them off. I need some sort of moisture there, whether it be a lip balm or lip color. I've been wearing Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Honey. It's the perfect, creamy nude."
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, $7.69, available at Target; Kinara Lactic Acid Hydrating Serum, $75, available at Essential Derm Care.
