Cate Blanchett Reveals Her Skin Care Secrets

Cate Blanchett is all smiles as she takes a leisurely stroll on Thursday (August 25) in Washington, D.C.

The 42-year-old actress, who was just chosen as the global brand ambassador for the high-end skin care line SK-II, revealed that the brand is one of her secret skin care aids!

“It was just so hydrating,” Cate said (via StyleBistro). “I never thought about skin being luminous, but this gave it that little je ne sais quoi.”

“There was a brief period when I abused the sun for about two summers when I was 14,” she added. “I would cover myself in baby oil and climb up onto the tin roof and try desperately to get a tan…My mother was always big on sunscreen, so my relationship to the sun after that has always been healthy.”

The 42-year-old Australian actress is currently in the nation’s capitol performing in Uncle Vanya at the Kennedy Center.

Cate and her Uncle Vanya co-star, and fellow Aussie, Richard Roxburgh recently sat down with PBS Newshour anchor Jeff Brown.

“Well, we were…we were asked to apply. And it was the most left-of-field thing that’s ever been asked of us, really,” Cate said of being asked to travel to the Kennedy Center with her husband, writer and director Andrew Upton, to work on the play.

“And we thought, well, if we don’t apply, it will just be cowardice. And then we got the job,” she added.
