The very mention of Academy Award-nominated actress, humanitarian and mother Rooney Mara calls to mind her porcelain skin and striking features. While we await her return to the silver screen in this year’s highly anticipated blockbuster, Women Talking, Mara shares her go-to clean skin picks and signature Givenchy scent with Vogue Singapore:
Holy grails I live by three of my favourite products: the LVLC Serum by Chance, US$170, which I use every morning and night; Carasoin’s Cold Fusion Intense Moisture, US$120, as a moisturiser, which comes enriched with all the good vitamins (A, C, E and D) and fatty acids (omega-3, -6 and -9). I also cleanse my face with the Alpha-Paradise Cleansing Dew by 001 Skincare London, £42, which leaves my skin feeling cleansed, nourished and hydrated.
Top-shelf fragrance Fragrances from Givenchy’s L’Interdit range will always be in my heart. I love the duality that L’Interdit fragrances carry—they are soft and feminine, yet feel empowering and bold, which can be suited for both night and day.
One beauty tip you swear by Consistency is key in any skincare routine. I regularly use a gua sha tool to apply my skincare to help reduce any puffiness and overall blood circulation. Occasionally, I’ve also booked sessions for cryotherapy and microcurrent facial treatments to help with cellular turnover and metabolism. Lanshin Pro Gua Sha Tool, US$169.93, from Net-a-Porter.
Make-up essentials Good brow products are my ultimate essentials as they help to frame the face—even if you don’t have any other make-up product on. A good lippie from Olio E Osso, $38.36, is always great to have in anyone’s grab-to-go make-up bag as well.
One skincare product that you keep coming back to Rose Quartz Face Mask by Poppy & Someday, US$42.
Essential mental health practice Having a healthy sleeping schedule, exercising and meditating often as well as eating healthy helps with my mental health.
Self-care regime While it can be challenging to fit in a regular skincare and self-care routine while being a mum of a young child, I try my best to include the basic self-care foundations into my lifestyle, such as having a healthy diet, having eight hours of sleep and meditating when I can.
