No facial fillers are in Drew Barrymore’s immediate future. The film star relies on skin care at home to keep the needle at bay for at least the next 10 years. Barrymore, who reveals on Instagram that she uses at least a dozen or so face masks to avoid fillers, shared her list of beauty must-haves.
The 41-year-old actress goes in for a Clear & Brilliant laser treatment once a year to banish summer’s dark spots, but that’s all her beauty credo allows. “He knows I’m not going to do anything beyond lasers, so he doesn’t even bother talking about it,” Barrymore told The New York Times. “He did suggest some fillers the last time I was there. I was like: ‘Not happening, Dr. G! Talk to me in 10 years.’ I’m not putting anything in my face until it’s so bad I have nothing to lose.”
“#beautyjunkieweek there is no end to masks. Don’t mess with your face. I’ve not used fillers or tricks yet. So I turn to innovation in skin care and beauty. Let me turn you on to attainable solutions. Be your best YOU.”
Top of her face mask favs list apparently is the Hanacure Effect.
“@thehanacure nuts when you take it off you are 10 years younger,” she writes. “You paint it on with a brush. It starts to dry. It pulls. It gets so tight that it literally pulls your face,” she writes.
“But it makes you look so fresh when you wash it off,” she continues. “And it’s so effective. How fun is that in a package. #notttooenvasivebeauty #kbeauty thank you @crystalmeers for the info that’s changed my life.”
The star of Netflix dark comedy Santa Clarita Diet told the NYTimes that her skin care routine is compulsive; she washes her face three times each day and relies on baby mild cleansers. Following up with toner is a must because Barrymore said she is prone to breakouts. She recommends Clinique acne clearing gel.
While she mentions products from her own Flower makeup line, the actress and entrepreneur does not ignore other brands in writing on Instagram. In fact, she offers a lengthy list of recommendations. Her splurges are Christin Chin brightening serum and cleanser, she told the NYTimes. Another favorite is French favorite Bioderma, which she calls “by far the best make up remover I have ever used.”
“This used to be only available in France,” she continues. “But now it is much more common in beauty supply stores, chemists and on line! Do not skip this step. It’s so clean. Like water. But doesn’t sting and is an old favorite of the fashion and beauty world.”
“I would say 90 percent of my life, I wear zero makeup,” she says. When she does apply foundation, she turns to Flower’s Skincognito Stick Foundation “because it covers blue, red, brown, purple.”
