Dear Potterheads, Emma Watson turned 30 today; feel old yet? I certainly do! As someone who grew up with the franchise, Watson became one of my first role models, both as a literary character come to life, and as a person off-screen. While Daniel Radcliffe went off to star in indie plays, Emma chose to save the world with her philanthropic work, while also bringing a Disney princess to life.

In addition to being one of the most wholesome celebrities, the reason why I personally love her is because of her approach towards beauty. She is a big advocate of embracing your natural skin and exudes confidence with just a bold red lip (she's half French, of course!). She is also a favourite among beauty enthusiasts because of her dynamic skincare routine; 5 habits of which we are about to elaborate on. Make way for all that Emma-approved glow!

Emma Watson has been talking about sustainable living way before it was even cool. That habit seeps into her beauty practices as well. From carrying rosewater mists in her bag at all times to gushing about natural deodorants; her vanity is full of clean beauty staples. The actress has spoken about being wary of nasty chemicals. She never puts anything on her skin that can affect the environment adversely. This approach benefits in maintaining the quality of your skin in the long run.

 

She NEVER scrubs her face

The idea of scrubbing being harmful to your skin has been thrown around in the world of beauty. Apparently, the cons of scrubbing your face can outweigh the pros if done incorrectly. Well, Emma isn't taking any risks. In an interview, she revealed that while she uses sea salts to scrub her body, her face remains untouched. Instead, she uses a gentle foam wash to exfoliate her skin and reveal that envious glow!

"No matter what, I always wash my face at night. I could get back from a shoot at 4 a.m. and still cleanse, tone and moisturise before going to bed," revealed Emma when asked about her beauty habits. The key to a glowing complexion can be as simple as doing your nighttime skincare routine without fail; we are taking notes!

 

She is obsessed with minimal makeup

Several makeup artists that Emma has worked with on-screen and off have revealed that she barely wears any makeup. They say the only brief from the actress is that her natural skin should be visible through minimal layers of makeup; she loves her freckles to show! You can bet that for a busy actress like her, letting her skin breathe might be crucial to maintaining it.

One of the things that Emma does to stay ahead of potential skin issues is taking a close look at what it needs on the daily. The actress loves to horde moisturises that work on targeted problems and will often switch the regular one with either a gel-based alternative or nourishing oils. That's some rock hard 'Hermione logic' if you ask us!
