As a spokesperson for Aveeno, Jennifer Aniston knows a thing or two about good skin. Still, there’s one beauty staple that every woman should have in her arsenal that the The Yellow Birds star admits she’s not too keen on: sunscreen.
While speaking to Amy Sedaris for her covershoot for Harper’s Bazaar, as shot by Mariano Vivanco, Aniston, 48, admits she doesn’t have much use for the stuff. “Sunscreen? What’s that?” she joked. “I just don’t like the feel of it.”
But don’t be alarmed: She’s not soaking up those harmful UV rays with no protection. As the former Friend explained, she’s been taking a break from soaking up the sun. “Being Greek, we love our tanning, but I’ve been on hiatus,” she said. “And I miss it. It brought me a lot of happiness being able to lay out there and get that vitamin D, but I’ve become very comfortable with a good spray tan.”
She’s also got plenty of supplements for any would-be deficiencies. “Vitamins, vitamins, vitamins,” she quipped. “I take a lot of vitamins, I’m not going to lie. It changes all the time because someone will say, ‘Oh my God, you don’t take activated charcoal? Then you go down a Googling hole to understand the benefits of that, or turmeric or dandelion for water retention. Now I’m doing apple cider vinegar in the morning.”
It certainly seems to be doing the trick: Girl looked like absolute FIRE in the both the Balmain crochet maxi (above) and red Dundas crepe jumpsuit she was shot in for the piece.
Perhaps, someday, we’ll have just the place to go to score all her beauty secrets — the Dumplin’ star and executive producer says she dreams of having her own wellness center one day. “I have a fantasy where you have this beautiful space with facialists, rotating workouts, meditation classes, and a café with recipes that are healthier versions of delicious foods so you’re not deprived. I’m working on it in my brain.” Um, yes, please!
“Not to sound all woo woo,” she continued, “but if you go out into the world with inner peace, you’re more joyful. There’s a ‘life’s too short’ policy that I have now with my work, no negative Nancies.”
