I admire actress Kate Winslet for her honesty and her approachability. She has always seemed so refreshingly real, in the brightest spotlight. In an interview with British Vogue, Oscar-winner Winslet, who has been the brand ambassador for cosmetic house, Lancome for 10 years, spoke about her personal beauty regime, aging gracefully, walking her “lovely dog,” and why she is worried about the negative impact of social media on her daughters’ self esteem. On her approach to her beauty regimen, her words inspire me: “Honestly, I have learned that health comes before reaching for a mirror or a bottle of product. And if anything, I do look in the mirror less and less as I get older. In my twenties I probably thought about my appearance more than I do now, for the simple reason that as I get older I have more important things that concern me than how I look. Like family, happiness, and having fun! Priority kicks in when you are a parent and my approach to beauty these days comes from a place of wanting to feel happy and healthy.“
Well said, Kate Winslet! I’m buying it!
