loves a wellness trend—so much so, that her friends once had to stage an intervention for her Kristen Bellmicrogreens habit, and she recently had to ditch a particular practice that was making her “too horny.” But while some of her feel-good regimens have been short lived (running, for example, is one thing she’ll never do again), there’s one wellness-friendly beauty tool that she’s stuck with for the long haul.
In the latest episode of The Avocado Show, Bell spills the beans on her entire wellness resumé, and when it comes to health and beauty, it’s clear she really knows her stuff. Despite being one of the busiest women in Hollywood—she’s an actress, dual-entrepreneur (she’s the founder of Hello Bello and This Bar Saves Lives), and arguably the greatest voiceover star of our time—she still prioritizes self-care and skin-care. The device she credits for her endless glow? Her Clarisonic Cleansing Brush ($99), which she says she never leaves home without. “When I forget it when I travel, I’m nervous all day that my pores are clogging,” says Bell. “I can feel it.”
For what it’s worth, skin pros are on the same page about the Clarisonic being a true ride-or-die product. “It gives an added exfoliation and a deeper cleansing. It’s especially great for keeping breakouts at bay and for its anti-aging benefits, since it helps with cell turnover,” Kathryn Dickinson, founder of Aillea, an online clean beauty shop that also has stores in Colorado, previously told Well+Good. It uses vibration and a bristley brush head to help de-gunk your pores, and is great for giving your skin a deep clean two or three times per week.
To find out which other wellness practices she swears by (… yes, including the one that made her “too horny”), the best piece of advice she’s ever received, and why she hates when people refer to her and her husband Dax Shepard as “couple’s goals,” press play on the video above. You know you love her, XOXO.
Don’t want to splurge for a Clarisonic? This $2 tool can get the job done just as well. Plus, exactly how many times you should be exfoliating per week, according to a dermatologist.
