Beauty Nicole Kidman's Beauty Routine Is Surprisingly Relatable The legendary actress on the soothing powers of CBD and a good, old-fashioned foot massage. By Maya Allen Maya Allen Instagram Maya Allen is the Beauty Director for InStyle, where she oversees all beauty coverage in the magazine. She has a thing for red lipstick (her collection is 200 strong) and an elaborate skincare routine.

InStyle's editorial guidelines Published on April 13, 2021 @ 08:45AM Pin Share Tweet Email Photo: Pamela Hanson/Trunk Archive When Nicole Kidman isn't on set doing what she does best, the legendary actress likes to practice self-care. Her beauty routine is low-maintenance, leaving her more time to spend with her family. The one thing she doesn't go without? CBD. Kidman is the ambassador for Sera Labs' Seratopical CBD line and discovered her newfound love of their products after experiencing the soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits. "I use my body a lot and am on my feet working 14-hour days, so [CBD] really helps with my joints when it comes to easing inflammation," she says. When she's not giving her husband and children pedicures and foot massages using Seratopical's Cracked Heel Souffle, she's lathering on the Radiant Glow Facial Oil to keep her radiant complexion intact. From glamorous characters she's played in former films to her favorite red carpet looks, the actress reminisces on her most treasured beauty pastimes, ahead. InStyle: You're always so well put together. What beauty lessons did you inherit from your mom? Kidman: My mom [Janelle Kidman] is a feminist and also very feminine. She always smells good and looks good. I teach my daughters [to be] the same. I'm like, "You need to smell good, look good, take care of your skin, file your nails, and take care of your feet. Do it yourself; it's your responsibility." It's not just about hygiene; it's about how they enter the world. I try to make myself presentable in the morning. I feel better inside when I decide to do my hair and put on a dress — not just my same old sweatpants or jeans. What's your typical skincare routine? I'm a five-minute girl in the morning and at night. I've got to put my kids to bed and spend time with my husband [Keith Urban]. I'm not going to sit there for an hour pampering myself. I don't like dry, scaly skin. Who does? But that's my skin's tendency. The one thing I've leaned heavily on is the Seratopical Radiant Glow Facial Oil. I also apply Cancer Council Sunscreen all over my face and hands.

What do you like about CBD-based products? I have sensitive skin that's reactive at times, and CBD helps combat that. I use my body a lot and am on my feet working 14-hour days, so it really helps with my joints when it comes to easing inflammation. My whole body responds beautifully to it. Are there any beauty items that your husband steals from you? He's a pretty low-maintenance guy. Sometimes, though, I'll treat my whole family to a spa day and massage their feet and give them pedicures. I'll use the Seratopical Heel Souffle on them and on myself at night. It's fluffy and has a great texture. Then I put my little bed socks on and wake up with the softest feet. I am so glamorous.

Well, I'll never forget Satine [in Moulin Rouge!]. I mean, you can't beat sitting on a trapeze with 100 men in top hats below you, right? Envision it! I have a photo of me in the trailer with my kids, who were little at the time. I was wearing a top hat, a sequin corset, fishnets, and stilettos, and I was making dinner for them.
