It’s no surprise that Kristen Bell has been an ambassador for Neutrogena since 2011. We’ve been tweaking our skincare routine forever just so we can get glowing skin like hers. We’ve been big fans of Kristen’s well before she and hubby Dax named their baby girl the cutest name ever, and now that we know her skincare secret, we love her even more.

In an interview with Refinery29, Kristen dropped her secret to dewy skin… and it costs less than $20, so you can easily add it to your budget skincare routine. She swears by Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost moisturizer, featuring new technology from Japan. Made of just hyaluronic acid and olive extract, it penetrates the skin practically immediately, leaving no residue, so you can do your makeup right away without worrying about slippage or melty face.


But that’s not all Kristen does to maintain her perfect skin. A vegetarian, Kristen believes that glowing skin comes from the inside out (and who could argue with that?), so each morning she makes her family a hearty smoothie that we’re going to have to steal. She tells Refinery29, “I make a shake every day that has vanilla protein powder, a ton of blueberries, an entire container of spinach, cherry juice — because it’s anti-inflammatory — organic apples, almond milk and a carrot or two.” Looks like we need to make a trip to the grocery store.


Kristen also suggests placing a hot towel over your face for a minute before reaching for the foundation. It increases the blood flow to your face, giving you that flushed post-workout glow. Who knew great skin was not only so simple to get, but also so affordable?
