The actress is also partnering with skincare brand No7 for a good cause.

“Thank God for melanin,” Nash shared with the magazine. “That’s all I have to say. I can’t speak on anyone else’s routine, but for me, I haven’t had to go the route to alter my face in any way.”

When asked what products she uses to keep her skin clear and radiant, she simply responded, “Masking.”

Her personal favorite being No7’s Lift & Luminate Triple Serum Sheet Mask ($6), which she uses twice a week. “I’m a big fan of a brightener and something that makes me glow. I found recently too, that I look like I have this Benjamin Button’s disease when I wear less makeup. So, I haven’t been wearing makeup in quarantine. I feel like it’s shaved so many years back.”

She added, “I recently got married to somebody younger than me so as long as we look the same age, I’m with it.”

The 50-year-old newlywed also credits her daughters for their contribution to her skincare routine. “I would say the beauty tip that I’ve gotten from my daughters is to always take my makeup off at the end of the day.”

She explained, “Working 16 plus hours a day, it’s easy to come home and just check out and be like, ‘you know what? I’ll get in the shower in the morning.’ But my girls have gotten me out of that habit.”

As for the advice she gives her children, it is simple: develop an early skincare routine. “You’re never too young to start taking care of your skin. And while we all have different skin, some is oily, some is dry, it’s never too soon to see what works for you.”
