Celebrity Skin: Emily Procter

February 14, 2010 | | Comments 52

This month Emily Procter is sharing her skin care routine and favorite products with us. For the past eight seasons, Emily Procter has helped to make “CSI: Miami” a Top Ten staple for CBS. She combines her innate talent, beauty, and Southern charm into her role as Detective Calleigh Duquesne.

Though investigating crimes scenes may not be as cutthroat an environment as the White House, audiences also know Emily as attorney Ainsley Hayes who she portrayed on the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning “The West Wing” for two seasons.

Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Emily was no stranger to television before moving to Los Angeles. While completing her degree in Journalism and Dance at East Carolina University, she worked as weather anchor at WNCT in Greenville.

Emily’s earlier big screen credits including the likes of “Leaving Las Vegas” with Nicolas Cage and “Jerry Maguire” with Tom Cruise. In 1998, Emily landed her first starring role in the critically acclaimed HBO telefilm “Breast Men” opposite Chris Cooper and David Schwimmer with whom she later worked on “Friends”. She has since co-starred in the New Line drama “Body Shots”, which reunited her with “Jerry Maguire” co-star Jerry O’Connell, and more recently opposite Martin Lawrence in FOX’s blockbuster sequel to the comedy “Big Momma’s House”. Emily also filmed a cameo role opposite Patrick Wilson in the comedy “Barry Munday”.

When not filming, Emily enjoys interior decorating, performing with her new band, playing poker, and working with various charities for the homeless. My Skin Affair asked Emily to share with us how she keeps her skin looking so radiant. She has some great product choices. Enjoy!

What is your skin care routine?

In the morning I wash my face with Neutrogena then follow-up with Skinceuticals Renew Overnight Oily (even though it’s a night cream, it works great under makeup because it’s light, moisturizing and won’t break you out).  At night I use a combination of Murad products; I love the firming Age Diffusing Serum, Lightening Gel and Age Balancing Night Cream.  I alternate with Skinceuticals, CE Ferulic, Phyto+ and again Renew Overnight Oily cream.
 

What are your favorite products?

I love the California Baby line! Even though it says baby on it, their products are gentle for sensitive skin.  I use the sunscreen (the one in the pump bottle) as hand lotion during the day. It’s a great way to protect your hands.  Burt’s Bees Apricot Baby Oil has a delicious scent, really delightful.  Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer is a winner and I also love Kai & Jo Malone lotions.
 

What’s in your purse?

In my bag I always carry Buddha Balm Lip Balm in Mandarin Orange Ginger and Shea Body Butter by Sun Flare Maui (Tuberose is my favorite).  I cannot say enough about this cream, I leave it in my bag because it’s a great pick-me-up.
 

How do you pamper your skin?

I take a bubble bath every night.  I use EO Bath Salts. And as far as bubbles go, I like EO Bubble Bath, Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Bubble Bath is wonderful, Cote Bastide Bain de Roses and California Baby too.  Ten minutes in the bath goes a long way!  Afterwards I cover my feet with Ahava Foot Cream – excellent!
 

Do you have a favorite spa?

I absolutely love Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs, California!  It is a very low-key place with a natural hot springs and great therapists.  It also doesn’t hurt that it’s about two hours from L.A. and reasonably priced.  Catherine in the restaurant makes a splendid raspberry martini!  After all, fruit is good for the skin!
 

Favorite spa treatment?

The hour and a half hot stone massage or the hour-long reflexology massage.
 

Favorite tip/advice for skin care?

Moisturize!!! Moisture is the key to young looking skin.  I will also wear makeup to protect my skin.  I use the Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer and take the sheen down with a little mineral makeup powder. I like sheer cover.  It is a natural polished look with good coverage and great sun protection.

Thanks Emily!

    muchos besos.

  38. janvier25 says:

    I liked Emily’s character on CSI, but seriously scarcely watch anymore because Emily is so over botoxed. Many of the other women on the show are too. How can actors show character and expression, when their faces are literally paralyzed? A discreet facelift even at 40 is understandable in Hollywood, but less is really more when it comes to botox and acting.
    She DOES have beautiful skin though.

  39. robert mortimer says:

    i watch csi miami every day and i think you are one very lovely lady and one fine actress.

  40. marlen says:

    hola emily:

  42. Jasmin says:

    heya Emily i think you area wonderful women i love csi Miami can’t wait to see where the E and C relationship goes as Adam would say your skin is beautiful and i don’t believe you use botox like a comment left here the woman on your show are gorgeous and so Natural keep up the good work and congrats on your baby it is a wonderful thing i have 4 children so if you wanna knw nething let me knw good luck

  43. Manuel says:

    Hola Emeli, te felicito sos una gran actris y una preciosa mujer, te admiro y te veo bella de rostro y de corazon.

  44. Mark says:

    jasmin above is so naive if she doesn’t believe Emily’s using Botox.Why do beautiful actresses believe the bs they’re fed by their advisers.Over the years I have watched a naturally beautiful woman turn into a Hollywood caricature with those silly pumped up lips.You only have to look at Lesley Ash here in the UK to see what happens when you overdo something.Get a grip Hollywood!!

  45. at man says:

  49. facemash says:

    My skin is oily at times but I’ve been using clean clear morning burst. It’s been trying to get dry too. Especially since the colder weather is following but it helps with my nose area that gets dry as well. Also, you don’t need to use a whole lot of the Moisturizer as well.
