Elizabeth Hurley Credits Her Ageless Skin to Doing This 10 Times Per Day

While we're fans of low-maintenance beauty, there's something cathartic about strategically applying your skincare products, slowly taking the time to move through each step with intention. It's a sensorial experience we know is contributing to the overall health of our skin, and it feels good to nourish and protect our unique outermost shells.

If you were to go through each of the editors' vanities at Byrdie HQ, it wouldn't be atypical to find a slew of products, each of which we'd vehemently argue serves a purpose. We may use a lot, but it's those extra steps each night and morning that we solemnly stand by. Plus, twice a day isn't really that time-consuming. 

If you're Elizabeth Hurley, however, it isn't so much the number of products you use but the number of times you repeat a single product throughout the day. According to an interview with UK magazine Woman & Homeas reported by Allure, the 53-year-old actress moisturizes her face six times a day and her neck 10 times. This begs a lot of questions: First, we don't know which moisturizer she uses (though she's said she uses Estée Lauder Resilience Cream, $108); second, if she's continuously moisturizing, does this mean she doesn't wear foundation? Most importantly, though, we were curious if applying that much moisturizer is actually beneficial, so we reached out to celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau for her thoughts.
