Rachel Brosnahan’s skincare routine has been influenced by her most famous character – Midge from Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
In the ’50s-set series, Rachel plays Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a Jewish housewife who embarks on a career in comedy.
Revealing in a chat with People how much Midge has encroached on her everyday life, Rachel shared: “(Midge) gets great pleasure out of her beauty routine. It’s something that she really enjoys, and that’s something I’ve borrowed from Midge. It feels good to clean my face, to take my make-up off, or to put make-up on when I’m going out.”
During filming of the show, which will be back for a third season later this year, Rachel received a real education in what it was like to be a woman in 1950s America.
“I once opened the medicine cabinet on set in Midge’s bathroom, and you never see it on the show, but there are about a hundred different products in there. Midge has a very extensive beauty routine,” she laughed. “It was really hard to be a lady in the 1950s! There were so many steps.”
As for her own beauty routine, the 28-year-old prefers a simple approach.
She recently landed her first brand ambassadorship with Cetaphil and is adamant the gentle skincare company is a perfect fit for her.
“When I was in high school, I had the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion side-by-side on my bathroom counter. Since then, I’ve loved using them and added the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 into my routine too,” she said. “My approach (to skincare) is listening to what I need in the moment and finding small moments to take a minute to take a breath.”
