Actress Kate Beckinsale was recently named “the ageless wonder” for her picture-perfect, luminous features. And while 43 is certainly a youthful age, there is something about this brunette beauty that’s making us swoon.
Aside from never taking a bad photo (seriously, try finding one) and just being downright gorgeous, the famous wife and mother to a 17-year-old daughter always looks glowing and blemish-free. But what is the secret behind this leading lady’s super-radiant skin? Perhaps playing a vampire in the “Underworld” film series taught her a thing or two about looking forever young, but thankfully, her beauty secret is one mortals can follow.
“It’s all about hydration. It’s purely hydration. When the face is hydrated it looks alive and like it has been fed,” previously explained celebrity aesthetician Kat Rudu to E! News who has helped Beckinsale appear red carpet-ready.

“When I work on Kate we do an exfoliation, we do a pore cleansing of course, and I am really known for my extractions,” added Rudu. "Then we go into hyaluronic acid which she is obsessed with. We just pour hyaluronic acid onto the skin for a really long time and just massage it and massage it. And then we end it with a vitamin oxygen infusion. That’s what Kate loves. She’s very simple,”
Fortunately, you don’t need to visit a Beverly Hills-based specialist for similar results. Rudu recommended first massaging the skin with your favorite cleanser for sixty seconds, concentrating on your nose, chin, neck, and décolleté. Then, gently polish your skin with an exfoliator to remove excess oil. After that, Rudu suggested “using an enzyme of some sort such as yam and pumpkin” for 2-3 minutes. Once you’re done, don’t forget a “milk wash.”
“Use 8 ounces of whole organic milk, warm it up in either the microwave or stove,” said Rudu to the celebrity news site. “Wash your face with this milk around 3-4 minutes, then rinse with cold water and pat dry. This provides vitamin A treatment to the face, which makes it look so smooth. The last splash of milk, leave on as a mask for three minutes to tighten your pores a little bit.”

Lastly, Rudu stated one should complete the regimen with a creamy mask, like Caudaile Moisturizing Cream Mask, to further boost hydration.
Sure, this may sound like a lot of steps, but who wouldn’t want skin as smooth as this star?
