This lockdown is the best opportunity to focus on things you haven’t had the time for before, like religiously, dedicatedly following a skincare routine. And if you haven't found a skincare routine that works for you yet, you've got to try Halle Berry's. 

While most celebs ostensibly age at a slower pace in comparison to the rest of the world, Halle Berry has certainly stopped time altogether. Actor Halle Berry - the personification of ageless beauty frequently posts her #FitnessFriday workout sessions on her IGTV but she recently shook things up with a 'Quarantine Special’ concentrating on her 4-step facial anti-ageing skin care routine instead. This 5-minute video that she shared with her fans explained each step of her skin care routine in a very comprehensive manner. Berry admits that she has followed a routine consistently since the age of 16.

Ahead, is a breakdown on how the Oscar winner maintains her healthy-looking skin.

 Step 1: Cleanse - Be Kind To Your Skin, It's Got You Covered

She started off this anti-ageing skin care routine with cleansing using one of her favourite facial cleansers (you can try GLOW Iridescent Brightening Foam Cleanser) and rigorously rubbed the product onto her entire face in an upward motion. She also said "This is going to serve you well as the years go by". By this she means if we massage our facial skin in an upward motion (against gravity) it will protect our skin from sagging in the years to come. Next, she deep cleansed with the help of a Facial Cleansing Brush and winded up her 1st step by saying” And ladies, don’t forget about the neck — often a tell-tale sign of age (along with hands).

Step 2: Scrub & Buff Those Bad Boys Away

After cleansing and rinsing her face thoroughly, Halle moved onto her go-to exfoliator. Once again, she prompted us to focus on the neck. “Oftentimes we forget that the neck is attached to our face, and needs to be cleaned,” she clarified.

Step 3: Masking, Because...You Need To Show The World A Healthy Face

Next Halle applies her  Mask – a gel-based face mask that gives her skin an extra dose of moisture during winters, thanks to its special ingredients - hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. Berry (quite vigorously) slaps it around (a K-beauty technique) that's frequently used to apply serums and oils. "I kind of literally smack it on," she utters. "Somehow I feel like it wakes up my skin cells and it just feels better, feels refreshing." Once Berry massages the clear, gel mask around for about 45 seconds, she lets it sit undisturbed for around 15 minutes before rinsing off.

Step 4: Moisturize, Because Life’s Tough On Your Skin, Why Not Give It A Treat?

And, as with any good skincare routine, she winded up by giving her skin a generous dose of moisturization. Berry stresses on the importance of moisturizing before applying any form of cosmetic especially your foundation. “I always believe you’ve got to start with the skin. You can’t paint a pretty picture if you don’t have a good canvas.”

“With that, I say enjoy this quarantine time to the best of your abilities,” says Berry at the end of her video. “Use it to do things that you don’t normally get to do because we’re so busy in our everyday lives. Love yourself, love your family, read a book, do yoga, meditate.”
