An
award-winning actress, mother and activewear entrepreneur, Kate Hudson knows a
thing or two about looking impeccable day in and day out. The daughter of
legendary actress Goldie Hawn, 38-year-old Kate, who recently signed on as the
face of La Mer’s new global digital campaign, Ways to Love La Mer, admitted to us that she has “finally
nailed her skin care routine,” but the secret to her picture-perfect complexion
comes down to one simple—and eco-conscious—trick.

“When it comes to cleansing, it’s easy to over-clean
your skin and strip it of its natural moisture. So, when
possible, I wash my face once a day, at night only, and—here’s the trick—I avoid
using water!” she says. “I love oil cleansers that you use on dry skin and pat
off, like La Mer The Cleansing Oil ($90). Then, I finish off with
a toner or micellar water that gives me that extra clean, hydrated
feeling. If I’m cleansing in the morning, I use La Mer’s The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream ($170), usually followed
by an antioxidant serum, and I always finish with
sunscreen.”

While some may say Kate’s unconventional, waterless way of washing isn’t the standard, truth be told, if your skin can tolerate a no-rinse cleanser or water-free cleansing method (as well as wipes), there’s no harm in doing so. The secret
lies in figuring out what works best for your skin—your dermatologist or
aesthetician can suggest if it’s wise to go the way of water or not—because
what works for one skin type may not be the best fit for another.
