Nicole Kidman Skincare Routine and Secrets

Nicole Kidman Skincare Routine and Secrets
by Truly Beauty

“Simplicity” is the best way to describe the Nicole Kidman skincare routine. While it’s easy to put her unparalleled radiance down to dozens of costly skincare products and beauty treatments, the actress believes less is more when it comes to caring for her skin. 

At 56 years old, the Academy Award winner’s skin looks impeccable. So, what’s her secret? Ahead, we reveal exactly what Nicole Kidman uses on her skin and how to achieve an award-winning glow at home. 

Nicole Kidman Skincare Routine

How does Nicole Kidman have such good skin? The actress relies on a few essential steps, morning and night, to maintain a youthful, radiant complexion. Here’s her step-by-step skincare regimen.

AM Routine

Step 1: Cleanser

As a SeraLabs ambassador, naturally Nicole Kidman is a big fan and advocate of their products. She’ll kick off her skincare routine by using their foaming cleanser, which is packed full of nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil which helps to break up dirt, oil, and impurities while maintaining the skin’s delicate moisture balance. Because Kidman has very sensitive skin, she favors a gentle cleanser that won’t irritate or strip her skin. 

Try Truly’s Glass Skin Cleansing Balm, an ultra-gentle cleanser + makeup remover infused with jojoba oil and niacinamide to deep clean pores, refine skin, and leave you with a clear, glassy finish.


Step 2: Face Oil

Next, she hydrates her skin with a soothing, anti-aging facial oil formulated with argan oil, vitamin E, and marula oil. Besides drenching skin in day-long moisture, it also helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while leaving skin looking luminous. 

Drench your skin in dewy hydration with Truly’s Glazed Donut Facial Serum. Enriched with grapeseed oil, passion fruit, and vitamin E, this lightweight, oil-like formula melts into skin, combating dryness, dullness, and signs of aging. 

Step 3: Sunscreen

The most important step in the Nicole Kidman skincare routine is SPF. “As someone with very fair skin, I'm very serious about sun protection and have been since I was a kid,” the actress told Forbes, admitting she always uses an SPF 50+. And it’s a step she never skips. 

Wearing sunscreen is an imperative step for preventing visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Even more importantly, it prevents skin cancer. 



PM Routine

Step 1: Face Wipes and Cleanser

Nicole Kidman takes her nighttime skincare routine very seriously. Because she insists this is the time that is essential to skin success. And she’s right. Not only do we generally have more time in the evenings to layer on our favorite potions, but it’s also the time when skin repairs and rejuvenates. Skincare products actually absorb better at night, when skin is in repair and recovery mode. 

She starts her PM routine with cleanser, of course. If she’s been working all day, she’ll use a cleansing wipe to quickly remove her makeup. But she’ll also thoroughly cleanse before going to bed to ensure she’s removed every trace of makeup. 

Step 2: Retinol Cream

The second and final step in the Nicole Kidman nighttime skincare routine? Retinol cream. She finishes things off with a thin layer of retinol cream to counteract signs of aging. “I believe in retinol; I do think it works,” she said. 

Retinol is a powerhouse anti-aging ingredient that boosts collagen, restores elasticity, and speeds up cell turnover, manifesting smoother, firmer skin. Besides addressing skin aging, it also improves overall skin tone and texture while fighting acne. Basically, everyone can benefit from using a retinol product in their regimen. 

Get your daily dose of retinol with Truly’s Vegan Collagen Booster Facial Serum. Powered by retinol, vitamin C, and plant collagen, it’s your daily staple for fighting fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.

Here are some other tips the Expats and Nine Perfect Strangers actress swears by for keeping her skin looking its best.

Oil Baths

Nicole Kidman loves and appreciates the value of self-care. While she doesn’t have much time for it when she’s in the process of filming, she prioritizes it when she wraps up the project. One of her favorite self-care rituals involves mixing oil in her baths. “I take hot baths with lots of oil. I love oil, and I love bathing in it,” she told Allure

Baths don’t just feel good. They can also help relieve pain and tension in the body. Add in some nourishing oils, and it’ll also hydrate your skin so you can step out of the bath smooth, soft, and renewed. We especially love coconut, lavender, and eucalyptus oils. 


The actress knows that good skin starts on the inside. That’s why she’s vigilant about taking her vitamins. “I take Swisse vitamin C effervescent tablets daily, as well as a vitamin D supplement,” she told W Magazine. “I try to drink matcha green tea quite regularly, and some days I make it in latte form, with frothed almond milk which is something that I love.”
