Unless you’ve been living under a rock (hey, these days it could happen), it’s likely you’ve heard of the lighthearted Apple series, Ted Lasso. And while Ted Lasso himself might be the nicest guy on television, the star of the show, IMHO, is the Richmond Queen Bee, Rebecca Welton (also known in real life as Hannah Waddingham). In case you were wondering, she’s 47-years-old, and yet she somehow has the glow of a 22-year-old. Well, come to find out she’s actually somewhat of a skincare junkie. The star told Glamour that if acting hadn’t worked out she would’ve “definitely have gone down the beauty, skin-care route.” She went on to admit that she’s obsessed. And obviously it’s paid off because she looks stunning.

And while she’s always been into products, she really stepped up her game once she got into her thirties. “I was a product minimalist in my 20s, but then I realized going into my 30s that I should ramp it up, because I was battering my skin senseless being in the theater,” she told Glamour. Another thing she’s keen on: Owning your age. “I just don’t think you should ever shy away from telling your age. I would rather a woman of 45, 50, whatever, is listening and going, ‘Oh, I haven’t tried that yet, but maybe I will.’ We’re all girls together. Just be honest about these things.” Here here! Now keep scrolling for exactly what she does to maintain that glow.

She’s not a fan of injectables… for herself.

The actress told Glamour, “I’m not into putting needles into my face,” she says. “If I could, I probably would, but I just don’t like them. I hate the two 11’s I have, or brow furrows, because it’s all I ever see when I’m on camera. So it’s a matter of softening them rather than zapping them.” She also shared that preventing her face muscles from moving would cause her to have a disadvantage at work. “I don’t feel like I’d be able to if I did certain things to my face. So it becomes a question of keeping it clean and radiant.”

She’s diligent about double cleansing.

“I always double-cleanse; I think it’s really important. I alternate between the Eve Lom Cleanser and Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm,” the Ted Lasso star shared with Glamour. “The balm feels like it’s giving you a bit of a face massage and helping with lymphatic drainage. I use that with a hot cloth, which helps me feel—as the mum of a six-year-old—that I have a minute for myself. And then I always use the Elemis Superfood Facial Wash just to get off any residue of the balm. I also like Emma Hardie’s Moringa Cleansing Balm. I don’t know if there’s any proof to switching up products, but I feel like it’s good.”

She commits to a gua sha routine morning and night.

The actress is a big fan of lymphatic drainage and uses a jade gua sha tool to do so. She shared with Bazaar that she first slathers on her Hayo’u oil and then uses two jade gua shas at once to sweet up her cheeks and jawline, around her eyes, and across her forehead. “I do it every morning and night for one minute,” she told Glamour. “And I keep them in the fridge; that way if I’m getting up at at 4 a.m. to film, I hold them under my eyes and sweep up under the cheekbones, under the jawline, and then the forehead. Otherwise I look like Mr. Magoo in the morning.”

She doesn’t mind splurging on “the good stuff.”

Waddingham rounds out her routine on Bazaar with Dr. Sturm’s Super Antiaging Serum saying, “this is probably my most expensive thing…but when you’re getting older, I’d rather spend money on the good bits that I know really works.” She goes on to add some application advice saying, “no pulling down ever, just up up up up up and out.”

But she believes in drugstore staples too.

Following that $350 serum, she sealed it up with a $19 do-it-all cream from Weleda. “Absolutely brilliant all flights and just a great all-purpose.”
