It takes a lot to transform 33-year-old Mandy Moore into a 66-year-old grandmother for This Is Us, and that grueling process is taking its toll on Moore鈥檚 skin.

Moore told Refinery29that putting the makeup on takes 鈥渁bout three and a half hours,鈥 and even shared a time-lapse video of the process on Instagram recently.

But the hardest part for the Tangled actress isn鈥檛 even the application鈥 it鈥檚 the intense removal. She said, 鈥淵ou wrap for the day and everyone鈥檚 like, 鈥楤ye!鈥 but you still have an hourlong process of taking off the makeup.鈥

Yep, it鈥檚 not a wipe-and-go situation here, and the age spots and wrinkle prosthetics are to blame. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a lot of chemicals,鈥 she explained. 鈥淵ou have to put on a greasy remover lotion in order to remove the prosthetic pieces and the ager, which goes on like a glue that you have to dry with a hair dryer. It makes the skin look crepey and older. Then, I have to wrap my face in hot towels, and we just keep doing that over and over again.鈥

Yikes! Moore also admitted that all these chemicals 鈥渞uin鈥 her skin, which she has described as sensitive, but she said that the crew is sympathetic and tries to sandwich her 鈥渙ld Rebecca鈥 days between 鈥測oung Rebecca鈥 days. 鈥淭hey鈥檙e usually pretty good about [that]. They鈥檒l make it so I have a day on and a day off from that makeup,鈥 she shared. 鈥淚t gives my skin a chance to breathe and acclimate.鈥

All that time spent in the makeup chair clearly pays off, because Moore looks truly authentic as both young Rebecca and her older, wiser counterpart. We鈥檒l never complain about taking five minutes to remove our smokey eye before bed ever again.
