If you're a Grey's Anatomy fan, you're probably pretty excited that the longest-running primetime drama just got renewed for season 21. We're pretty hyped about it too and so is the cast. Rumor has it that we could see a return of Dr. Addison Montgomery played by the fabulous Kate Walsh, now that she's done with Netflix streamer Emily in Paris. She's a stunner and after all those years on TV, Walsh knows a thing or two about keeping her skin screen-ready. She sat down with Yahoo Life to talk about aging gracefully, her beauty routine and her most-loved skincare solutions.

Quick Overview

"I feel like I'm living my best life!" the 56-year-old said. Read on to find out what that means for her skin.

Kate Walsh's Top 5 Beauty Products

A cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all: exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin. It's the perfect prep step before any skincare or makeup application.

To start your skincare routine off right, Walsh recommends Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970.

"It retexturizes the skin and you pat it on — I do it every night and every morning," shared the actress. "I personally don't do any fillers or Botox, and [with Biologique] I've seen a massive improvement."

This elixir promises to keep skin moisturized for 8 to 12 hours, so you can be sure that your skin will stay hydrated no matter where your busy day takes you.

Walsh is a believer in one product to keep her skin soft: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil. "I use it all over my body...I'm a big fan of using oils on skin for hydrating!"

This silky "miracle oil" delivers intense, hydrating moisture to the body, face and hair, along with a delicately scented light floral fragrance and luxurious texture — almost like an at-home spa experience!

Made up of tiny, nano-sized droplets, each soothing drop of the Systane Complete Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops forms a matrix of protection across the entire eye surface, delivering optimal dry eye relief, providing fast hydration and ensuring tear evaporation protection.

"We think about hydrating our skin but we don't think about our eyes," observed Walsh. When her vision started to feel blurry a few years ago, Walsh visited an optometrist who told her she has a condition called dry eyes, which stems from not producing enough tears to keep her eyes lubricated. To combat this irritating dryness, the doc recommended Systane Complete Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops.

"What I love about Systane Complete is that A, it's preservative-free, but B, it is complete in that you only need one drop and it lasts eight hours," says Walsh.

Watts Beauty's ultra-light formula contains the lowest high-weight hyaluronic acid, which absorbs quickly and blends easily with your favorite serums and creams.

"My mom has always had great skin," observed the Emily in Paris star. Her secret? Watts Beauty 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid. "It's 100% pure hyaluronic acid, super cheap and it's really great."

What's the big fuss about hyaluronic acid, anyway? It's simple — hyaluronic acid is known for its ultra-hydrating abilities, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid levels in skin decrease with age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and a dry, dull, crepey texture. Adding a pump of hyaluronic acid a day can gently plump skin, helping to restore its supple appearance and springy bounce.

This serum promises to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve elasticity for smoother, firmer and tighter skin.

Hydration is the name of the game in Kate Walsh's skincare routine. "Bioeffect EGF Serum is another great find, especially because I don't do cosmetic procedures ... it's super hydrating for your face." This award-winning facial serum delivers visible results, utilizing the power of EGF (proteins that keep our skin young and healthy) to restore, repair, lift and plump, leaving skin with a youthful, healthy radiance.
