Star Beauty: Jennifer Aniston's Skincare Routine

Jennifer Aniston is one of those ladies that always looks amazing; it’s probably a combination of her clothes, figure, that hair and especially her skin. Read on to find out the details on all of Jen’s skincare routine tricks.

The thing we love about Jennifer Aniston’s Skincare routine is that she keeps it natural, which we are a massive advocate of. So, at Nakin we thought we would delve a little deeper to see what skin care she uses, to get an idea of her skincare routine, and just how she gets that fabulous glowing skin.

Jennifer Aniston turned 50 this year; but could easily be mistaken for a 30-year-old. So, we decided to investigate how she achieves this fantastic look. We would love to know the anti-ageing products that Jen uses, as we know she is a huge fan of natural skincare. We also happen to love her style, and she seems like a lovely person too. Our work researching her favourite products and anti-ageing skincare tips and tricks was a joy. We will go into more depth later in the article about the why and how of everything, but below we have summarised the main elements to Jennifer Aniston’s skin care routine.

We love Jen’s overall attitude towards her skincare, and she shared this with Vogue magazine, saying “Emotionally and mentally, I would say it's just about loving yourself and loving what you've been given — to really appreciate it and take care of it. Because this is the only body we're given, we need to be really good and mindful of what we eat and how we take care of our skin — getting a good night's sleep is extremely important, as is hydrating with water, water, water. It's so important to getting that extra glow." These are wise words from Jen so let’s look at these tips and the other parts of her skincare routine in more detail below.

At Nakin we are very impressed that Jennifer takes so much time out dedicated to her skincare. It’s the perfect excuse for some relaxation and we could not agree more with Jennifer’s simple approach to skincare. Jen told Forbes magazine that her skincare routine is quite simple; she washes her face, followed by a toner, and then a serum. She also told Shape Magazine that Sunday is her spa day and usually does a mini facial to exfoliate, hydrate and condition.

Copy Jennifer Aniston’s skincare routine with our stunning Nakin Anti-Ageing Skincare range. It fits the bill perfectly as it is natural and without unnecessary ingredients, instead it is packed with the best natural plant actives available. It’s also cruelty free, as we all know that Jen is a massive animal fan. Start with our anti-ageing cleansing milk, that can also be used to exfoliate if removed with a lukewarm muslin cloth, using small circular motions. Then Toning with our anti-ageing face toner to remove the last traces of cleanser, provide additional skin purification and closing pores. Then start adding the nutrients to repair and condition skin with our anti-ageing face serum, followed by our anti-ageing face oil. Our anti-ageing eye cream is next to reduce fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. Moisturise the rest of the face with the right product for you, either our anti-ageing face cream for oily skin or our anti-ageing face cream for dry skin. Lastly do not forget the lips, and we know Jen is a big fan of natural lip balms, so use our anti-ageing lip balm for long lasting soft moisturised lips.

We love that Jennifer’s philosophy matches ours at Nakin with a ‘The simpler the better when it comes to buying skincare’. She has been the brand ambassador for Aveeno for eight years, and during this time learnt all about the science of skincare. Vogue magazine in an interview with Jennifer herself talk all things skin and beauty. Jen said she has had the opportunity to learn more about how ingredients that interact with the skin’s microbiome. The microbiome is like the skin’s ecosystem, and it is really important to keep it balanced. We know so much now about how important gut health is to skin, and we are now starting to put the same emphasis onto skin health. Jen said to Vogue that she is obsessed with the science bit and finds it very interesting working with beauty brands like Aveeno, as they helped her to learn that there are so many chemicals in products that really aren’t good for skin. We could not agree more Jen and that’s why we developed Nakin Natural Skincare. It’s formulated without unnecessary harsh and synthetic ingredients and is instead full of the best natural anti-ageing active ingredients for skin, to achieve superb smooth, fresh hydrated skin.

Jen really makes an effort with her skincare routine. She told Allure magazine that she hates societal attitudes surrounding ageing, and wishes we could shift our perspective on it being a negative as it happens to all of us. Jen says we just need to be very good to our skin and take very good care of it. 

Sleep has long been known to help beautify, and that’s why it’s known as beauty sleep. We don’t need any hard and fast science to prove this, as we all know how much better and relaxed our faces look after a good night’s sleep. We should all prioritise it like Jen does.

Hydration is essential to Jennifer and there is a very good reason for this. Jen drinks loads of water as part of her skincare routine as it helps with skins elasticity and smoothing out wrinkles. It detoxifies for an alive complexion that’s soft and plump.

Jen apparently still sits in the sun sometimes to increase her Vitamin D intake for a subtle glow and mood boost. But she knows it can only be an occasional small shot from the sun, due to the damage to skin and risks from sun exposure. So, Jennifer Aniston uses safe body bronzers and spray tans to get her enviable year-round glow.

InStyle Magazine report that when Jen moved to Hollywood, she realised that a less is more approach to make-up works best and uses a tinted moisturiser on her face. She loves that natural look and you can see in all of her photos that her real skin shows through, and her lip, cheek and eye make-up is subtle.

We love Jen’s attitude to looks and not obsessing over them too much. In Instyle Magazine Jen talks about how she sees real beauty in people like Gloria Steinem, who at 82 radiates beauty. For Jen beauty is not just about having a smooth forehead and perfectly sculpted cheeks.

It’s no secret that Jen eats clean. She advised Women’s Health Magazine that her diet includes eating really good fruits and vegetables, less fried food, sugary drinks and alcohol as it is so drying to skin. Her diet is mainly just fruits and vegetables and healthy lean proteins and water. A typical day might be to have warm water with lemon first thing in the morning. She does drink coffee, but also has a shake, eggs, avocado and coconut oil on whole wheat toast, and drinks lots of water throughout the day. If Jen is going out she will take healthy snacks with her.

You might not relate exercise to good skin, but it really is a big help. WebMD state that by increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin. In addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Health.com say that Jen puts in one hour every day of exercise, except on Sundays, which may explain why Sundays are her mini facial day. Jen has access to the absolute best personal and fitness trainers, and living in Los Angeles they are easy to get to and access. One of her trainers Danielle Lagree shared some of those exercises with InStyle Magazine and Women’s Health magazine. This includes lunges for legs, kickbacks with a moving disk, and resistance band work such as overhead extensions and chest presses. People magazine reported that Jen advises to shake up your routine to keep your muscles alive so also runs, does bike training and celebrity fitness programmes like The Class and Body. Jennifer Aniston’s workout routine is full of variety and balance, and she looks happy and healthy as always.

Aniston is now a fan of at-home gadgets for maintenance. She is a devotee of handheld facial massagers, including electrical ones to stimulate skin like an at home facial. Vibrating facial massagers provide increased blood circulation onto the skin, which promotes healing and cleansing of bacterial agents trapped underneath the pores. While the facial massager vibrations firms and tightens the skin and she also loves an electrical nano current facial machine. These have become very popular in recent years and work by allowing electrical currents to make contact with your skin, they stimulate a naturally occurring chemical called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP is stored energy and it is released when you need it. As you age, your ability to produce and store ATP slows down, which means that your body doesn’t have the stored energy to repair damaged skin cells. Facial electric currents work to increase the levels of ATP in your skin, replenishing your stored energy and allowing your cells to work better and repair themselves.

It’s nice to hear that even with a good skincare routine and access to the best facialists and natural treatments around, Jen still needs an instant face pick-me-up from time to time. We hear that she is a fan of eye masks on an early morning start, for a quick skin pick me up and for some collagen boosting revitalisation. She also likes cryo-sticks when sleep deprived. This collagen-boosting treatment improves that crepey texture and regenerates skin's firmness so that skin looks plumper straight away, and the cold therapy gives skin an instant tightening lift. Many people find that our Nakin skincare products also give an instant improvement to skin, so why not try our anti-wrinkle eye cream and our anti-wrinkle face serum. Jen also told Vogue Magazine that another good tip that her facialist taught her is just get a bowl of ice water and splash your face 25 times. It’s an old school trick that Joan Crawford used to do as an easy way to wake skin up. We love this as it sounds like a brilliant free way to prep up skin when tired and lacking sleep.

Jen told shape magazine that she loves her at home infrared sauna for skin detoxification and cell rejuvenation. She said that she does this a couple times a week right after a gym session and has noticed a real change in her energy, sleep, and skin.

We read that Jennifer had a laser treatment about 10 years ago and it just bloodied her face for about a month. She tells Vogues Magazine that “It was way too aggressive and that’s when I realized that what might work in the short term can be damaging in the long run.”. Although InStyle Magazine report that Jen does have non-invasive resurfacing as a little skin refresher and other non-invasive treatments like using radiofrequency waves to stimulate collagen, smooth and tighten skin.

Jen always makes time for self-care like yoga and meditation. She gets up a little earlier every day for meditation. Shape magazine reported that she prioritises ‘Me Time’ over everything else when it comes to beauty and wellness, which is a tip we could probably all take in our busy lives. Jen loves to meditate in the morning and watch the sunset in the evening.

One of the main things that we noticed about Jennifer Aniston is that she is such a kind soul, and always sees the funny side of things. We noticed this from listening to her TV interviews. This has to be boosting Jen's youthful look, as fun and laughter are really important for good skin. Laughter releases feel good hormones and banishes those stressful ageing ones, it also stop those frown lines and gives the face and body a nice little workout.

We hope that you enjoyed reading all about Jennifer Aniston’s skincare routine, and we think Jen has it spot on with her natural approach to anti-ageing, and keeping her routine simple.
