She Embraces Her Natural Beauty

Watson shared some of her skincare tips with Into The Gloss. She says that she is a lot more confident with herself and is embracing her natural beauty. "As I've gotten older, I've embraced my freckles much more and I want to be able to see them. When we were filming Beauty and the Beast, I insisted on keeping my freckles as a part of the movie. There are so many young girls who are going through puberty who really hate having them, so I felt the need to say that I have them and that I think the look of natural skin is beautiful."


She Makes Skincare A Priority

Watson tells Into The Gloss that skincare is a big priority to her. "I think it's because, when I was going through puberty—particularly around ages 14 and 15—I had really bad skin. So when you get in a good place with your skin, you really appreciate it and try to take care of it."


She's Consistent With Skincare


Watson tells Into The Gloss that she always makes sure to wash her face and go through her skincare routine each day. "No matter what, I always wash my face at night. I could get back from a shoot at 4 AM and still cleanse, tone, and moisturize before going to bed. People are amazed by this, but it's just one of those self-care practices that I really enjoy."

Watson tells Into The Gloss that she makes sure to keep her skin moisturized. "Now my skin tends to run pretty dry," she says. "So I use the Évolué Gentle Cleanser and Firming Toner because it doesn't have tons of alcohol in it or make your skin sting, but it really does the job. And then I switch up my moisturizers depending on what issue I'm trying to address."


She Makes Time To Relax


Watson has a busy schedule, but she always makes time to relax. "I have a bath every single day of my life," she tells Into The Gloss. "And if I can have two or three—amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that. I'll take phone conversations in the bath, anything. Sometimes I'll use Epsom salts and oils, but my favorite is the C.O Bigelow Apothecary Cold and Flu Soak."


She Doesn't Make Things Stressful

When it comes to skincare, Watson doesn't like to stress herself too much. "Most of my routine keeps to an 80/20 philosophy," she tells Into The Gloss. "Because it's very difficult to be a complete purist, especially when working in the film industry. You can end up driving yourself a bit mad and make it more stressful than it should be. Sometimes you just need a mascara to be waterproof and that's OK."


She Wants To Educate Herself


Watson is an open activist, and she tells Vogue that she wants to always work on doing better. "I saw 'white feminism' coming up again and again, and I was like, 'Hey, this is clearly something that I have to meaningfully engage with. I have to understand this better.'" Watson also says that she is a supporter of the trans community. "Having spoken with, or having friends who are trans, there's so many more important issues that are not being discussed. We're dealing with life-and-death stuff."
