In a new interview with the New York Times, she talks all things beauty and reveals her day to day skin care routine, which includes an unexpected pick straight from the drugstore. “After the shower, I like Shiseido body lotion. On my face, it depends on the weather. If I’m in a dry climate, I use the Weleda Skin Food on my body and face,” says Stone. “Or I use La Mer or the Neutrogena with SPF 15 sunblock. I also use Eucerin, which is a really good, easy-to-get product. And Avon’s Rich Moisture cream is a good product that has never gone bad on me.”
To protect her skin during long flights, she reaches for backup in the form of under-eye masks and a mix of essential oil blends. “If I need it, especially if I’m traveling, the Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask is amazing. And I love my H. Gillerman essential oils for the plane,” adds the star.
While most of her beauty revelations seem standard for a woman who knows how to treat her own skin, the one arena where Stone’s revelations are awe-inspiring is in how she achieves her signature short ‘do. Surprisingly, the A-list star takes matters into her own hands. “I cut my own hair,” she says. “The first time was when I was with a French hairdresser years and years ago, and I had long hair. He said pull all your hair up and then just cut off the ends and you’ll have all the layers you want.”
Although you’d never know it by looking at her that she’s responsible for her own pixie cut, she does admit that not everyone is a fan of her technique. “Every once in a while, when I get a haircut from someone else, hairdressers will complain, ‘Who did this haircut?’ But the truth is no one ever likes someone else’s cut.”
