Celebrity Skin: Lisa Edelstein
For five seasons we’ve been watching Lisa Edelstein on Fox’s multi-award winning hit drama “House M.D.“ as Dr. Lisa Cuddy. Lisa portrays “Cuddy” with great skill, opposite Hugh Laurie, as the Dean of Medicine and hospital administrator on “House M.D.” The conflicted on screen relationship between Lisa Edelstein and Hugh Laurie is somewhat volatile and always very entertaining to watch. Thankfully, this absolute knockout of a beauty is returning for the sixth season of “House M.D.” on September 21st in a special two-hour season premiere, followed by another original episode on September 28th.
The lovely and, I have to say, very sexy Lisa Edelstein took the time to answer a few questions for me about her skincare routine and favorite skincare products. I especially love that she frequently steams her face with a wet washcloth and tells us exactly how she does it, using her microwave. It’s a great tip. Enjoy!
What is your skincare routine?
Every night I use Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. I gently rub it on my face with no water, making sure I work it in well enough to remove make-up (even eye make-up!). Then I take a wet washcloth and microwave it to steaming hot (about 25 seconds) and when it’s cool enough to not char my skin, I lay it on my face to steam everything off. It feels fantastic. Sometimes during the day or in the morning, I will just steam my face with a clean washcloth as a skin refresher.
What are your favorite products?
I use Cle de Peau Beaute Lotion Tendre at bedtime after the cleansing and I really love their Eye Contour Balm. I also like Epicuren Protein Mist.
What’s in your purse?
I like to keep Epicuran Brazilian Propolis Serum in my purse as a refresher. It’s amazing after those LAX to JFK plane rides.
How do you pamper your skin?
I find that sometimes I’ll steam my face with a clean washcloth throughout the day. It’s very refreshing for your skin.
Favorite spa treatment?
The only spa treatments I get are very gentle full body aromatherapy massages, reflexology on my feet or a good scrub at a Korean spa. Those ladies aren’t messing around. If there is a dead skin cell anywhere near them they will scrape it off and all of it’s relatives too. You come out of there looking like a new born and feeling like you very narrowly escaped death.
