Jennifer Aniston is “obsessed” with learning about the ingredients in her skincare products.

The Friends star, who is back in the spotlight thanks to her new Apple+ TV programme The Morning Show, has had her fair share of beauty mishaps over the years that have prompted her to look into the science of her formulas.

“We are sold such a bill of goods wrapped up in expensive packaging, but I have found that when it comes to a skincare routine, the simpler the better,” she told Vogue.com. “I’m obsessed with the science bit. I find it very interesting and working with beauty brands like Aveeno helped me to learn that there are so many chemicals in products that really aren’t good for skin.”

Through a process of trial and error, Jennifer has learned to avoid extreme skincare treatments, and just heads for the sun to give her that dewy glow.

“I had a laser treatment about 10 years ago that just bloodied my face for about a month,” the 50-year-old shared. “It was way too aggressive and that’s when I realised that what might work in the short term can be damaging in the long run. I still sit in the sun… you need that vitamin D for a glow and your mood.”

However, Jennifer is aware of the sun damage risks and sticks to skin-friendly products in order to fake that glow.

“I have become a fan of body bronzers and spray tans,” she added.

Elsewhere in the interview, the actress revealed that she is also a fan of eye masks and cryo sticks.

“Another good one that my facialist taught me is just get a bowl of ice water and splash your face 25 times. It’s an old school trick that Joan Crawford used to do – it just wakes your skin up,” Jennifer insisted.
