Jennifer Connelly is known for having flawless skin and a beautiful complexion, both of which she admits come with serious skincare dedication.

So how does the 42-year-old manage to stay so youthful? By sticking to not one but TWO daily beauty routines she tells Redbook magazine.

“I have one for day and one for night, and both are thorough,” the "Stuck in Love" actress shares. “It's the one thing I take time to do consistently.”

As the face of Shiseido skincare, Jennifer uses the brand’s Future Solution LX line, which includes a cleansing foam and regenerating serum. She began a daily skincare routine in her early 20s when she realized that her make-up was damaging her skin.

“I was working a lot and wearing makeup, and when I'd take it off my skin felt so dry,” Jennifer tells the mag.

Though her job demands the constant application of make-up to look good on-camera, the actress admits that she’d rather not wear it at all. “I don't have hours to do it in the morning, and frankly, I wouldn't want to spend time on it even if I didn't have kids,” she shares.

And even though she’s stuck in her skincare ways, the actress recently chopped off her long hair for a film role, which forced her to change up her hair care routine of 15 years.

“I never really used styling products when my hair was long. Now, I really like Bumble and Bumble Bb. Texture Hair Undressing Crème. My hair is naturally wavy, and the cream gives it a nice texture.”

And for the mother of three, she doesn’t focus on the fact that she’s getting older. “When I do, it's to wonder what we [as a family] want out of life. Are we doing the things that we enjoy?” Jennifer says. “As I get older, I have a clearer sense of what's important to me.”
