Can you blame her?

If you've ever tried a La Mer product before, then you understand the hype. But if you haven't, let Ana de Armas's radiant skin do all the talking.

"I have very sensitive skin, so it's good that I've found a line that really works for me and makes [my skin] calm down, while also working on anti-aging and hydration," she shares exclusively with InStyle. 

While the Cuban-born actress, who will be starring as the latest Bond girl in No Time to Die (in theaters Nov. 25), may be the brand's latest celebrity brand partner — don't get it twisted, she's been a longtime La Mer devotee.

De Armas was first introduced to the line several years ago by a makeup artist friend who always kept the products in her kit, and she's been hooked ever since.

"I'm really protective of my creams, I don't want anybody to touch it," she jokes. "I know if someone puts their finger in it!"

Between the brand's cult-favorite Crème de la Mer Moisturizer to newer additions like The Renewal Body Oil Balm, La Mer has a bevy of products to choose from. However, there's one product in particular that de Armas has been relying on while she's been quarantining.

"In the morning I wash my face, then apply The Concentrate," she shares. "I have been using it now for quite a while. I can feel it, my skin is actually different — it feels good and really radiant."

The magic of La Mer's latest launch is all in the lightweight serum's formula, which contains a brilliant mixture of the brand's trademark Miracle Broth, which helps to calm redness and sensitivity, along with lime tea concentrate to help skin appear brighter. All together, the ingredients work across each skin type to combat dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and uneven tone and texture.

Formula aside, the star adds that the new product has also saved her a good amount of time both in the morning and at night, since it can double as a cream. "You don't need to add a moisturizer on top," she says. "It's really moisturizing on its own."

With much of Hollywood still on hold due to social distancing guidelines, de Armas shares that regular makeup application is no longer a part of her beauty routine. But with La Mer to thank for her radiant glow, she doesn't seem to mind the time apart from makeup. "It's actually nice to start seeing your skin," she says.

But when you've got a glow that good, who could disagree?
