We’ve all heard the saying “age is nothing but a number,” and when it comes to Jane Fonda, we couldn’t agree more.

At 83 years old, the actress, L’Oréal Paris ambassador, author, and environmentalist is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. From countless red carpet events to close-up T.V. interviews to glowing magazine covers, Fonda has learned a thing or two about skincare from the best of the best.

“Skin is very important,” she said in a recent interview with Grazia. “It’s important as a movie star. You can get rid of a lot of wrinkles and things with good lighting, but still, it’s really important for any woman, whether she’s a movie actor or not, to take care of her skin. To keep it clean and moist.”

The star’s current skincare routine is pretty simple. Every morning, Fonda follows the same routine: cleansing her face with a coarse washcloth to exfoliate, following up with a facial cream that includes SPF 50, and applying some under-eye concealer, blush, and lipstick if she’s going out.

But it's when she’s getting ready for bed that the real skincare magic happens. She always makes sure to apply her favorite night serum, the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Midnight Serum Anti-Aging Complex. “As you get older, skin tends to get drier—everything does,” said Fonda.

This day-to-night serum is formulated with an exclusive L’Oréal Paris antioxidant recovery complex, which works to replenish the skin’s antioxidant levels (which boosts the skin’s renewal process overnight). Its vitamin E and hyaluronic acid-infused formula helps to smooth out wrinkles and lock in moisture. It’s designed to be used both in the morning and evening, to give skin twice the boost in one day.

“It has a lot of antioxidants and good things to hydrate the skin,” said Fonda. “And it comes in recyclable glass. The brand is trying to use less plastic, be more sustainable, and are recycling products, so I think that’s a good thing.”

Dermatologists recommend using serums that include antioxidants like vitamins C and E to treat mature skin concerns, so it's no wonder Fonda finds the anti-aging product effective. “The antioxidants get absorbed and act within the skin to prevent environmental damage,” says Edidiong Kaminska, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in private practice at Kaminska Dermatology in Chicago.

Each drop of this lightweight serum helps to give the skin intense hydration while leaving it feeling soft. It also quickly absorbs into the skin and won’t clog pores or leave behind any sticky residue.

Walmart customers also gave the product a 4.6-star rating, and can’t stop raving about how amazing their skin looked and felt after using the serum.

“I could tell a difference in my skin texture after one use,” wrote one satisfied customer. “I was pleasantly surprised to obtain results that quickly. It has a very light scent and absorbs quickly without leaving any oily residue behind. My fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable as well as the hyperpigmentation areas. L’Oréal has used the latest stem cell science in developing this serum and they kept the environment in mind as the packaging and bottle can be recycled. It’s a winner!”

Fonda isn’t the only star reaping the benefits of this top-rated product. Actress and L’Oréal Paris Ambassador, Viola Davis also uses the anti-aging serum to keep her skin looking youthful and radiant. “I take Epsom salt baths, apply essential oils in the shower, tune into the Calm app, turn on diffusers, and use every kind of skincare and anti-aging treatment, which now starts with L’Oréal’s Cell Renewal Midnight Serum,” said Davis in an interview with Real Simple.
