The actress now continues to maintain this same care-taking attitude when it comes to all things in her life, including eating well and meditation, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
Laverne Cox’ secret to flawless skin is all about self love. It actually actually helps a little bit of moisturizer.
“I have always had acne-prone skin on my face,” she tells exclusively Us. “Fortunately, the acne walked away immediately as I started hormones. It’s a great blessing to start hormones and have a life-long skin problem disappear with the start of my journey to who I really was.”
The 48-year-old actress now continues to maintain this same care-taking attitude when it comes to all things in her life, including eating well and meditation, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. It really is about feeling for her. For the first time in my life I have said no to things. I’ve meditated, I have ate well and I just focused inward.
Think it or not, this kindness toward herself has manifested itself into clear, beautiful skin. She says: “I no longer need to put a bunch of serums on my face. Her new diet includes high protein foods with little to no refined sugar. It completely changed how I sleep at night. My body feels better and my skin is better so I just throw in some moisturizer and roll it into my skin.“
What exactly is her favorite moisturizer? “Gold Bond has always been my go-to skin moisturizer because it goes on smooth and dries quickly,” she says. For some reason I’m usually such a girl in the field that I don’t want to stay around and wait for a heavier moisturizer to sink in, but I still want to handle the ash. And so she’s never late.
“Living your best life is my very own way of feeling confident, radiant and great about my inner beauty,” she says. I know it sounds silly or cliche but it is really the best advice I have received. I don’t hold on to negatives. “ I give back to my community and then it shows on my face real well.”
