  • Brooke Shields shared the face oil she swears by to soothe dry, inflamed skin.

  • Shields says her skin has changed due to menopause, something she believes has been a “taboo subject for far too long.”

  • She called the CBD-based oil “skin rescue in a bottle.”

Brooke Shields is tired of society tiptoeing around menopause—a life change that “literally every single woman on the face of the planet” experiences. “It’s 2021,” she said in a recent Instagram video. “It’s past due time to fully embrace that women’s bodies are not embarrassing ... so let’s talk about it ladies.”

The actress, 55, offered to start by sharing her favorite menopause tip, which also happens to be a skincare product. She called it “skin rescue in a bottle,” but it’s formally known as the True Botanicals CBD500 Anti-Inflammaging Face Oil.

“I see menopause as the start of the most empowered phase of a woman’s life—we should talk about it more!” she wrote in the caption, adding that the oil has “changed my skin during menopause.” (FYI: Shields is a partner with the True Botanicals brand.)

Made with a concentrated dose of “full-spectrum CBD” per the brand’s site, the oil was “specifically formulated to support your skin during hormonal changes,” Shields explained. “I use this every day and my skin is always left hydrated and glowy!”

On her Instagram Story, the actress continued to explain why she loves the face oil. “Normal hormonal changes that we all experience during menopause don’t just cause hot flashes, they actually trigger inflammation under the skin, which leads to dryness and can speed up the appearance of fine lines [and] wrinkles,” she said. (According to the American Academy for Dermatology, the skin does lose some ability to hold water during menopause, which results in dryness.)

In addition to CBD—an ingredient that scientists are still studying for its potential anti-inflammatory effects—“[the oil] also has deeply moisturizing seed oils like jojoba, squalane, and prickly pear which leave my skin so soothed, healthy, and glowy,” Shields said.

The actress demonstrated use of the product by dispensing a few drops onto her fingers and rubbing it into her skin, but she said it can be mixed in with a moisturizer, too “when you feel like your skin needs it.”

“It just smells and feels so good,” she concluded. “I cannot recommend it enough.”
