Busy Philipps’ beauty and self-care regime has evolved since she launched her late-night talk show last year.
The actress has had to meet the demands of hosting Busy Tonight and credits her stylist and new role as an Olay ambassador for allowing her to look flawless while doing it.
“I really believe in trying to keep it as natural as possible…,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I do get a fair amount of facials. Like I really do, but also I think that’s part of when I’m doing a show or working – and this has been most of my career – you’re wearing so much makeup, you’re sitting under lights all day, you’re putting powder on top of powder on top of powder.
“You just need to get that deep clean. You need to get your skin really clean every couple of weeks.”
And the star has learned a few helpful beauty hacks while juggling the show’s hectic schedule.
“My makeup artist Kindra Mann, who has been doing my makeup for years now, bought this little mini refrigerator for our glam room at Busy Tonight, and she keeps these rollers in there,” she adds. “There’s, like, a jade roller and a rose quartz roller, and she’ll, like, roll my face and under my eyes in the morning and it is very refreshing.”
The 39 year old has also benefited from her partnership with Olay, noting the brand’s products are perfect for prepping to appear on camera.
“Skincare truly is something that I do feel very strongly about,” she tells the publication. “I’m a person who has lots of beauty marks and moles. So I know that protecting my skin is important to my health. Then, of course, there’s the superficial reason, which is that I’m an actor and a person in front of the camera, and I don’t want wrinkles. When Olay sent me the product and I started trying it and utilising it in the day-to-day, it was so incredible.”
The blonde beauty has also used the show as an opportunity to share her style preferences and express herself.
“It’s incredibly important to always be true to myself and the essence of who I am on the talk show,” she adds. “It was actually a piece of advice that Stephen Colbert gave me, which was, ‘Don’t ever stop being you, because that is the thing that people have responded to. It’s the thing people want, and your job is to put that into the world in the purest way you can when you do a talk show’.
“I thought that was such amazing advice from him and I really try to implement that in many different ways.”
