Cameron Diaz admitted that she “never” washes her face anymore.
In a recent interview with RuPaul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage on the new BBC podcast Rule Breakers, Diaz told listeners that she’s rejected unrealistic beauty standards in the past few years.
When it comes to the 49-year-old’s skincare routine, Diaz admitted: “I literally do nothing. I like never wash my face… Twice a month if I’m lucky.
“I’ll be like, ‘Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?’ Like is that all I have to do? I’m just not in that place right now like where I put any energy [into skincare]”.
She also talked about her “a billion products” which are being neglected on her shelf.
"I am absolutely a victim to all of the societal objectification and exploitations that women are subjected to.
“I have bought into all of them myself, you know, at certain times,” she admitted.
She added: "It's hard not to, it's hard not to sort of look at yourself and judge yourself against other sorts of markers of beauty.”
Diaz also described that one of the more “toxic” parts of acting would be having to sit in front of a mirror for up to seven hours a day for hair, makeup and wardrobe duties.
She revealed: “You start to pick yourself apart, and you’re like, ‘why am I sitting here being so mean to myself?’ My body is strong, my body is capable, right? Why am I going to talk down to it?”
Back in 2018, Diaz announced that she was retiring from acting, with her final movie being 2014’s Annie, and she has since found the focus has shifted away from her appearance.
“I think that’s one of the biggest things of the last eight years. I’m like a wild animal, like a beast. I don’t care. Literally, the last thing I think about on a daily basis... like maybe not at all during the day, is what I look like."
Now, as the star approaches her 50th birthday, Diaz is instead focusing on “staying strong” and healthy.
“I do feel like 50 is different than 40….But it doesn't have to be."
