Ryan Reynolds Revealed His Skin-Care Routine — And Shared Some Major Life Keys
It’s rare that we’re blessed with a gem like Ryan Reynolds’ skin-care routine, but the 42-year-old Deadpool actor recently shared the details with Vogue while at an event promoting Armani Code, the brand’s newest scent. On screen (and thanks to a mixture of makeup and CGI), Reynolds portrays an unconventional superhero with a misshapen face, but in real life, he strikes a balance between rugged and smooth — suggesting a complex combination of facials, creams and serums. His routine, however, is pretty anticlimactic.
Reynolds’ pared-down routine is a blend of pilfered products from wife Blake Lively’s stash (he tends to go for anything that says “moisturizer”) and heavy-duty creams when he’s shooting Deadpool (Edap, if you’re curious), but outside of that, he likes to keep it pretty minimal. What’s a little more complex — and inspiring — however, is his holistic approach to aging and self care. “There are so many bizarre and unhealthy standards placed on so many people and not just in the public eye, but in regular life outside of that world,” he tells Vogue. “In terms of aging gracefully, I never bemoan a birthday. We all want to be old people at one point, so you may as well enjoy getting there. I think it’s sexy to embrace [aging], rather than combat it.”
Although we can’t do much with his skin-care routine, we’ll definitely be taking Reynolds life tips to heart.
