While Brad Pitt may be launching a luxury line of Le Domaine beauty products, the Moonlight star has revealed he opts for a somewhat laissez-faire approach when it comes to his own skincare routine.
Having previously branched out into the world of wine, the two-time Oscar winner is once again diversifying his business portfolio through the creation of a new skincare range, Le Domaine.
Skincare routines are all the rage right now. For example, the #skincare tag on TikTok has amassed a total of no less than 115.7 billion views at the time of writing, with various content creators boasting huge followings as a result of their various skincare tutorials and tips.
But what does the skincare routine of an A-list celebrity look like?
Brad Pitt’s surprisingly relaxed skincare routine
Well, according to Pitt, it’s not that complicated. While it was once rumoured that Pitt spends as long as an hour each night on his skincare, a recent interview revealed this wasn’t quite the case.
Speaking to Vogue from his French residence during a launch for the Le Domaine, the Fight Club man revealed skincare has not always been his top priority:
“I grew up with a country mentality, kind of you know, Dial Soap once a day and then move on.”
Pitt went on to admit that: “Truthfully I’ve been a tourist (in skincare) at best. It’s been pretty lax… I want it simple, I think it’s true of most guys”, he added.
Pitt did make sure to thank his long-term makeup artist Jean Balck, whom he says makes sure he stays looking fresh with the use of LED facemasks. Very high-tech!
Inside the Le Domaine skincare line
Despite Pitt’s past reluctance to indulge in regular skincare, his new brand appears to have all the answers when it comes to looking after your skin and being sustainable.
As per the official Le Demaine site, the new range aims to “slow the process of skin ageing and give everyone, regardless of gender or skin type, the opportunity to age well”, while using “a maximum” of sustainable ingredients.
Included in the range are four products: a cleansing emulsion, a Fluid Cream cleaner, a moisturising/anti-ageing cream and a serum.
Unfortunately for those of us who don’t have an A-list bank account, the Le Domaine range does not come cheap. With the Cleansing Emulsion starting at £60, the range goes as high as £290 for the Serum, which is only 30ml in size!
Gwyneth Paltrow – a skincare icon
While Pitt explained his newfound venture, he couldn’t help but shout out his former partner and long-term friend, Gwyneth Kate Paltrow.
Discussing the impact of Paltrow’s beauty empire Goop, Pitt told Vogue:
“I love what Gwyneth’s done [with Goop]. She is still a really dear friend, and she has built this empire… it’s been a lovely creative outlet for her”.
Pitt even went on to explain Paltrow’s effect on his skincare routine, claiming she “was probably the first one who got me to even wash my face twice a day… maybe.”
