She Loves Baths With Oils

Watson shared some of her beauty and self-care secrets in an interview with Into The Gloss. "I have a bath every single day of my life," she says. "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. Oh my God, it's amazing! It has eucalyptus and peppermint and bark and Echinacea and ginger… If you're sick, it's the ultimate. It clears out my sinuses and makes me feel really clean. Another brand I use a lot of is called Lola's Apothecary. They do this incredible milk bath with rose petals that's inspired by Cleopatra. Amazing. Then there's a brand called French Girl Organics that has this great Sea Polish which exfoliates and leaves you moisturized afterwards. I like that because it eliminates a step after the bath."


She Makes Breakfast Burritos

Watson loves to cook, and she often makes healthy food. She loves to make healthy breakfast burritos in the morning. "I make guacamole, salsa and scrambled eggs, and then I cook the tortilla," she tells Marie Claire US. "It's pretty simple, really, but yummy."


She Keeps Her Skin Hydrated

Watson has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She shared her favorite products in her Into The Gloss Interview. She says that she aims to keep her skin moisturized. "My skin tends to run pretty dry, 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. I use the MV Organics Rose Plus Booster a lot and also their Rose Soothing and Protective Moisturiser. If my skin is feeling a bit sun-damaged or congested, I like their 9 Oil Cleansing Tonic, but I've never been big on masks!"


She Washes Her Face Every Night

Watson makes sure to wash her face each night, and explained the importance of this to Into The Gloss. "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. 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 Embraces Her Natural Features

Watson tells Into The Gloss that she has come to accept herself in recent years, and wants to highlight her natural features. "The object for me when applying makeup is you should be able to see as much skin as possible," she says. "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. I didn't want to get blanked out!"


She's Happy

In an interview with Vogue, Watson talked about being a child actor. She says that she feels at peace with herself now, and made sure to stay sane. "I'll let other people be the judge, but I feel sane, and feel normal and myself. I think I'm the most proud of that. Because sometimes I look at it all, and I go, 'I was lucky to come out the other side of that.'"


She Stepped Away From The Spotlight

In an interview with Vogue, Watson talked about stepping away from acting. "I'm just so glad that I did

because I have this feeling of having my own voice and creative space and sovereignty in some way that I don't think I did before — more autonomy. I'm so glad that I allowed things to be messy for a minute and to really allow myself to not know [what's next], because the knowing that I've come to, I wouldn't trade that for anything."
