“Thank god my feet aren’t on camera” is a sentence I by no means thought I’d hear throughout an interview over Zoom, not to mention from Kate Winslet. But right here I’m listening to the long-lasting actor inform me simply how badly she wants a pedicure. Throughout the pandemic, Winslet hasn’t touched her toes or visited a salon. “My feet almost look unrecognizable as my own feet right now,” she laments. “They’re so horrible.”
We aren’t right here to strictly chat about toes, although. (A reduction on my half, however glad to know stars are similar to us.) Instead, our dialog begins with an acknowledgment of the newest line on her illustrious resume: L’Oréal Paris’s latest spokesperson. Of course, Winslet feels honored to be bestowed with this title. “They celebrate women at every age,” the 45-year-old explains. “And yes, it’s a beauty brand, but at the same time, they talk about cost-efficient ways of taking care of your skin and feeling good about yourself.”
As the main focus on her toes has gone to the wayside over the previous yr, Winslet has been all about, effectively, caring for her pores and skin and feeling good about herself. In the realm of merchandise, she took time to experiment with new merchandise and work out what really works for her complexion and what simply is not doing the trick anymore. And on a deeper degree, Winslet discovered to cease scrutinizing her pores and skin and to have a more healthy, extra constructive outlook on getting older.
“I’ve noticed my face and how it’s changing a little bit more in the last year because there’s just been more time with yourself to look at those things,” Winslet says. “What I’ve found is that — to my relief — I’m just going easy on myself. I’m at an age now where things are changing all the time. The skin on my neck is really different now, the skin on the back of my hands needs some serious TLC.”
Despite noticing these modifications, Winslet stresses she has no want to show again the clock or alter something, although. She’s simply having fun with who she is true now, on this second of time.
Making Time for Makeup
Although she’s loved not continuously sporting make-up, Winslet has a newfound appreciation for the times when she does, luxuriating within the enjoyable technique of placing it on. Again, Winslet takes time to attach together with her reflection, look herself within the eyes, and “have quiet conversations with [herself],” she says. Otherwise, Winslet barely seems at herself within the mirror when she rapidly brushes her enamel, moisturizes, and heads out the door.
