Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall may be 54 — but as fans of the films who saw the ’80s flashback scenes can attest, she can pass effortlessly for someone half her age. The actress attributes her youthful appearance to a strict diet and plenty of exercise, as well as a diligent skin care routine, which has recently expanded to include Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body products (she’s the new spokesperson). “Usually products are either drying or greasy, and I can’t stand either one,” she says of her search for the perfect skincare system. “I think it’s a great product. It’s eight bucks a bottle. This lasts long and it does a great job.” The star says having fair skin has made her extra conscientious of how she cares for it, too. “I have really British skin, very sensitive,” she tells PEOPLE. “I can’t even go into hot climates — I get heat rashes! I used to try new products, my skin didn’t like them … and then I’d come out with a big welt. I’m so much more protective of my skin now.” That vigilance includes scaling back her makeup and skincare routine, as well. “I’m really careful. Nothing too potent, nothing too stingy,” she shares. “I stick to really simple, hypoallergenic [formulas] … and I have to take off my makeup every night.” Good advice!
