Sandra Oh nailed her part in Killing Eve, sparked my binge-watching habit with her role in Grey’s Anatomy, and—arguably best of all—has a noteworthy skin-care routine filled with products we use on the daily, and others we’ve yet to try. No wonder she can do it all while still looking fabulous.
To our surprise, Oh admits that she struggled with her skin until around the age of thirty. “Growing up and until my gosh, early-mid 30s, I had terrible, terrible skin,” Sandra told The New Potato. “It made me feel ugly and insecure.” Not only was she dealing with allergies that caused redness, but she was also battling eczema and asthma—the ultimate inflammation culprits.
These issues carried on through her role in Grey’s Anatomy, which was the final straw before turning to see an acupuncturist. “She changed my life, this was not an overnight thing. I saw her regularly–sometimes twice a week–for two years. After four years, my whole being felt better, from the inside to out. No creams, no inhalers but from a cellular level, my insides have changed, and it’s reflected on my skin,” Oh notes.
Another skin-care must for the 48-year-old? Having a tried-and-true double cleansing routine. “In the evening before bed, I’ll clean off my makeup with Neutrogena eye makeup remover (non-oil) then clean with my Clarisonic and a gentle cleanser,” she told TNP. The benefit of double cleansing is that the initial cleanser breaks down any makeup while the second cleanser addresses your particular skin type and deeply cleanses.

But, it doesn’t stop there. Oh also implements serums into her nighttime routine to target her specific concerns more directly. She swears by the entire collection by iS Clinical but will occasionally interchange that with the iGlow Illuminating C Serum ($95) and the Le Mieux hyaluronic acid ($60) and glycolic serums. “I also love Caudalie Resveratrol Serum,” she tells TNP.
Finally, she finishes it all off with LightStim ($249)—the ultimate wrinkle-reducing device. The device is equipped with red, yellow, green and blue LED lights to treat a number of skin conditions; if you’re looking for a customizable skin care tool, this will be your go-to.
