Olivia Munn's 5-Step Skincare Routine

Olivia Munn's 5-Step Skincare Routine
by Truly Beauty

X-Men, Ocean’s 8, New Girl ... the list goes on of Olivia Munn's acting achievements.

But that's not all we should be thanking her for.

The 40-year-old Hollywood actress also happens to be something of a beauty junkie. Seems to us like she's picked up a lot of expert-level beauty tips from her many years surrounded by makeup artists, hairstylists, and estheticians. And the best part? She's not afraid to spill the tea about her fave beauty products and go-to skincare routine.

Eeeeeek! We're sooo ready for this!!! 


She Has a 5 Steps to Flawless Beauty Routine

Looking at Munn's radiant complexion, you'd think the woman lives in her bathroom. C'mon, her selfies look almost as glowing as those red-carpet snaps! 

Turns out, her beauty routine may very well be quicker than yours. No, seriously...

Olivia Munn's morning skincare routine consists of washing her face with a gentle cleanser and applying a toner, brightening serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Her PM skincare routine looks almost identical -- only instead of sunscreen, she indulges in a self-care session with a Youth To The People face mask.

But She's Not Afraid to Try Something New

"I love trying new products," Munn tells People. "But I would get overwhelmed because I wouldn’t really know the order. Remembering ‘thinnest to thickest’ makes it easier."

So what are her fave skincare products for glowing skin? 

To hydrate, Munn reaches for Dior Capture Totale Serum, which features skin-moisturizing hyaluronic acid and soothing niacinamide.

For eye cream, she'll switch between La Mer’s The Eye Concentrate and Proactiv’s Eye Brightening Serum. 

According to Munn, "It’s the one thing I have to have when I travel.

"I put it on at night and wake up looking refreshed. You can use it during the day as well because it reflects light," she tells Byrdie of Proactiv’s product. 

And when she's seeking even deeper hydration, the star slathers on Youth To The People's Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial, which contains fruit-derived enzymes and caffeine extracts to smooth and brighten skin texture.

She Won't Leave the House Without Sunscreen

The actress said she wears a sunscreen with SPF 30 every day -- or at least, whenever she leaves the house.

If you want to maintain healthy, clear skin, the first step you should take is investing in a quality sunscreen and then apply it every time you go outdoors to protect your skin from harsh UV rays that cause premature aging, dark spots, and potentially even skin cancer.

Prone to pigmentation, Munn swears by Proactiv’s Dark Spot Corrector Pads. 

"I have freckles and I love my freckles, but you can start to get sunspots where your freckles are and they start to group together, which really prohibits your skin from reflecting light, which I think everyone wants because it gives a youthful look," she says.

She Keeps Makeup Wipes By Her Bed

As an actress, you're constantly having thick makeup reapplied to your skin. Sometimes, that makeup sits on your face for hours. Thus, it's really important to take it off at night so your skin can breathe and rejuvenate as you snooze. Never (EVER!) sleep in your makeup. 

"It’s so important to wash your face before bed, but, you know, you get lazy!" she tells Racked. "So as long as I have the wipes by my bed, I can just use five or six of those to get everything off. We all have our lazy days. And moisturizing every night, no matter what."

Remove every last trace of your makeup and any leftover impurities with Truly's 24k Gold Black Soap Impurity Cleanser.


She Exfoliates A Lot

Olivia Munn certainly knows a thing or two about skincare. One thing she strongly believes in: exfoliation. 

"Not always with a product, but with a face brush I use with my regular face wash," says Munn. "Someone told me this a while back, and it makes a lot of sense: If you look at men, they don’t ever get wrinkles around their lips — because they shave. So they’re basically constantly exfoliating." Yup, definitely makes sense!

In other words, regularly exfoliating your skin can make a huge difference to its texture, tone, and clarity.

"And by the way, when you exfoliate, you’re not only getting rid of that top layer of dead skin, but you’re also encouraging collagen growth," adds Munn. Sounds about right to us!

She Makes Her Diet Work for Her Skin

You can use the best skincare products available, but if you're suffering from an internal issue, nothing's going to help except restructuring your diet. And that, Munn did!

"When I was diagnosed, I had to change what I consumed and I had to be super thoughtful about what I put into my body," Munn explains. "I had to start eating gluten-free, dairy-free and I had to cut out a lot of things that I was used to having every day and things that I really loved."

Fortunately, this skin-smart celeb found a prebiotic alternative made with apple cider vinegar called Poppi. 

"It's my healthy treat that not only fulfills my craving but it does really offer something that I need, which is real benefits for gut health, and it boosts my immunity and it gives me great, glowing skin."
