Felicity Jones uses a face roller every day & exfoliates twice a week

Doesn’t it feel like Felicity Jones should be a bigger deal? She’s an Oscar-nominated actress who has starred in multiple “prestige” films. She always gets work, in America and in the UK. She’s quite beautiful too. But she’s doesn’t really score on any gossip scale – she doesn’t have a messy personal life, she’s never drunkenly falling out of a club, she doesn’t get into Twitter feuds and I don’t know much about her life, and I’ve been covering her for years. So… I was a bit surprised to see her on the cover of Shape, talking about fitness and diet. That doesn’t seem on-brand for her, but does she even have a celebrity brand? Not really. She is promoting something – The Aeronauts, where she joins up with Eddie Redmayne to play a pair of hot-air-balloonists.

She’s not on Instagram: “I think if it’s the right time and it feels right, then I’ll go for it. I just haven’t yet.”

Her idea of vacation is staying home: “It’s such a gypsy job. Not having to leave the house is a real treat.” This includes staying in and making dinner with her husband of just over a year, movie director Charles Guard. “We’re both real foodies, so we get enormous pleasure from cooking together.”

She lights a candle every morning: “Sometimes I feel like a headless chicken when I’m running from one thing to another. I’m probably not breathing properly. I have a little space where I put down a yoga mat and I light the candle—Diptyque in scent No.34, which is almost unisex, with a spiciness to it. Even if it’s just for 10 minutes, I have a stretch. Then I feel a little more centered and ready for the day.”

Eating rules: “I think my rule would be balance if I was going to have a rule. It’s so connected to fitness: The more fitness you do, the more you have a better, healthier diet. I make a pretty mean tomato-vegetable soup, which is fresh tomatoes and every vegetable you can think of: courgettes—you call them zucchini—capers, carrots, onions. I’ll put in as many vegetables as possible to get a massive vitamin hit. When I’m shooting and the days are long, I try to have dried fruit and snacks like that to keep my energy up. And I think you have to treat yourself sometimes; otherwise you’ll go crazy.”

She loves the ritual of skincare: “I’m using a face roller daily. Clé de Peau Beauté has a fantastic serum, and I put that on and give my face a wake-up massage in the morning and get everything going. I’ll often exfoliate twice a week and do a facial mask—as well as a hair mask—once a week. And it’s really important to take your makeup off properly before going to bed. That’s what my mom taught me, and it has stayed with me. I like locking myself in the bathroom and doing a proper pampering session when I have time.”

She’d rather run outside than in the gym: “I’m not terribly good at being stuck in a gym. I prefer long walks and being outside and going for runs. I grew up very tomboyish, playing sports with my older brother. I loved hockey, field hockey, netball [similar to basketball], and tennis. So I think it’s become an extension of having that experience of being in nature and not feeling daunted by a challenge. For instance, learning to climb silks for this role seemed terribly complicated: I wrapped my foot in all sorts of strange ways to lead myself up the silks 20 to 30 feet. But I got an enormous satisfaction when I realized I could do it. I couldn’t think about anything else because I was just thinking about survival, which is weirdly quite relaxing.”

Well, I didn’t even know she got married a year ago, so there we are. I’m very suspicious of all of this “face roller” stuff lately – it feels like something that, in three years’ time, people will be like “actually face rollers don’t do anything.” And I need to do facial masks more often. Damn it. My problem is that whenever I do a mask, I always break out right afterwards. Ugh. What else…her tomato soup sounds more like a vegetable stew with a tomato base. But I bet it’s good.

    Damn she looks so gorgeous on that cover. Her face, her body, the outfit. Love it all. She’s so underrated as an actress.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      She’s beautiful right??,I’m very fortunate to have great teeth and am happy with my smile,but if I ever did cosmetic dentistry I would take in a pic of her,I love her kind of thick/longer front top teeth,smile envy I guess 😁

  2. Kristen says:

    1. I love Felicity Jones. She’s great in everything.
    2. Massage is really good for your face, so the face rollers are probably just an easier/less strange looking way of doing it? Also the beauty industry isn’t going to make any money by saying, “you can just use your hands,” so there’s that too.

  3. Tila says:

    Lol netball is not like basketball.

  4. Leriel says:

    I exfoliate every day with chemical peeling, but I have really old red acne spots and I try to fade them away (my skin gonna hate me I’m sure).

    Well she may say whatever she wants about her routine and I believe she does it at home, but she clearly does other beauty procedures too, like botox for example. At least she doesn’t insist that only home routine and one serum help her too keep her skin that good.

    • Noodle says:

      @Leriel, if you are on Reddit, the SkincareAddiction sub is an excellent place to get advice for whatever ails your skin. I have lots of freckles and age spots (I have lived in SoCal my entire life and just don’t sunscreen like I should), and they have wonderful recommendations that have worked for me. If you have stubborn spots and want some feedback, you can always post there and get lots of advice. If the chemical peeling is working for you, then that’s great too. Every skin is different and you just have to find what works for you!

      • Leriel says:

        Chemical peel and niacinamide are working, hardly but I see some results at least with smaller spots. I am happy that they are spots, not scars, and my skin is smooth in general and I can easily cover them with a foundation. I am pale but surprisingly my skin is bulletproof – it doesn’t get burn easily (when I may forget sunscreen), it resists retinol, seriously I had no side effects from it, and from different acids too, ugh.
        I tried a lot of stuff, but TO works pretty nice, their niacinamide serum is the best on the market, I highly recommend for everyone who wants to try this active ingredient.

      • Noodle says:

        @Leriel, I use TO as well. I love their products. Do you use the AHA/BHA peel for your chemical exfoliation?

    • Bailie says:

      She is certainly very attractive and talented, it’s nice to see a young woman that is not drunk most of the time and almost always messy for a change.

      My best friend really improved her old acne marks and uneven skin tone by first using Green Apple Sensitive Peel mask by Juice Beauty, twice a week for ten minutes the first week, twice for 15 minutes the second week and so on until she was able to do 1 hour twice a week.

      Later her face was ready for the Green Apple Full Strenght Peel and she build up the time the same way and it significantly improved her skin. She no longer has to wear foundation.

      Estrosense helped regulate her hormones internally, so she has no new breakouts and her diet without dairy & eggs improved her skin immensely.

      • Moo says:

        I have great skin when I avoid eggs and dairy. If I eat them, even one meal, I break out for several weeks with big, painful, purulent pimples. Before I knew about the diet impact I had to take Accutane to keep normal looking skin! I tried EVERY other natural treatment, supplement, homeopathy by a dermatologist, anything you can think of.

        My childhood dermatologist told me diet was not important, but more recent studies have shown that it is. Processed foods apparently exacerbate acne by raising testosterone. I eat pretty clean. Occasional processed foods don’t make me break out, but the eggs and dairy reliably do even when the rest of my diet is super clean.

    She’s pretty and talented, and I love watching her. Skin care vise; I just opened that brands store and I couldn’t afford anything there. Mostly cause I just don’t want to spend that much on creams and make up. I lately started doing my own cream and guess what, is way better than most I’ve tried. And is the best hobby I’ve ever had. You actually get to know what you put on your skin and what it literally eats. No shade to those who do get more pricey things.

  6. Spicecake38 says:

    I just got a face roller and used it today for the first time!
    It says to place in refrigerator 30 minutes if you want,but mine already feels very cold.
    It certainly isn’t hard to use,so I’ll probably keep doing it.I read a comment somewhere where someone said duh-it’s the same as women putting a spoon in the refrigerator and pressing against puffy areas on the face since forever…

  7. Maria says:

    I’ve gotten back to my Vitamin C serums – right now I’m using the Tarte Youth or Dare and I love it, before that it was the Tatcha Violet-C serum but I used the whole thing and it never had any effect, which for 88 dollars is absurd. I still love the Rice Enzyme Powder though.
    Been lazy and just using the rest of my Neutrogena SPF 70 Beach Defense sunscreen as a daily sunscreen. I’ve used others like Skinceuticals Physical Fusion and want to try the Elta one but they’re so pricey…

    • Sami says:

      I’m very impressed by the results I’m getting from my Juice Beauty Stem Cellular
      Anti- Wrinkle Booster Serum and Stem Cellular Exfoliating Peel Spray, such lovely products with much less chemicals than most skin care lines on the market that irritate my skin and don’t do much other wise.

      I also love Tata Harper’s Regenerating Cleanser once a week for my face exfoliating in the shower and my daily morning Superfood Air Whip Hyaluronic Acid moisturizer by Youth to the People.

      The two masks that I love the most are Youth to the People Superfood mask and Tata Harper Resurfacing mask, they are pricey, but luckily I rarely have to use them, because I focus on healthy eating, drinking plenty of water and good skin care.

      I’m not into make-up, only mascara daily, plus lip gloss for special events.

  8. greenmonster says:

    The only face mask I am using is Charlotte Tilbury’s Goddess Skin Clay Mask. It doesn’t break me out and my skin looks actually better after using it.

  9. Lou says:

    @Kaiser, what kinds of masks are you using? If they’re for hydration, a lot of times they will have a moisturizing ingredient called caprylic/capric trygliceride which always makes me break out. When I found masks and moisturizers without that ingredient, I stopped breaking out. Obviously it could be a number of things but it’s one place to start. And I second the earlier comment about getting into Reddit’s skincare addiction thread. It’s an incredible resource for learning and testimonials.

  10. Wickster says:

    Does anyone else use cleansing oil instead of soap? I use a natural product I found on Amazon called IFS Natural Cleansing Oil w/Lavender and Chamomile–smells amazing–and I massage it in for about 1 minute then use a Clarisonic for about a minute, then rinse with tepid water and pat dry. My husband noticed the difference right away, said my skin was glowing. Not sure how it works for oily skin– but I remember years ago Janet Sartin products recommended oil for cleansing as well. I use a prescription Retin-A product for wrinkles and the flaking that comes with Retin-A is unrelenting. I’ve started with the cleansing oil after trying everything else and it has really worked miracles. I just cannot use regular soap anymore. But I’m in my late 50s–skin definitely changes. I had to stop exfoliating frequently as well, it was just causing more dryness.

  11. Alyse says:

    Went to Clé de Peau Beauté site and she’s their current face… so that could be why she’s doing a beauty interview where she ‘happens to’ mention Clé de Peau Beauté

    She’s beautiful & classy so great brand fit there

  12. Yepper says:

    She’s a good actor but just pointing no one uses gypsy anymore. Very Enid Blyton and it’s now considered a derogatory term. In the sense she meant it, peripatetic is a better word. Otherwise it’s Roma/Romani.

    Also, most if not all on-camera people have a regular dermatologist or two. If they don’t get an allowance for it in the build-up to a film, they’re consulting one out of their own dollars.

  13. Ashley says:

    Felicity Jones and Emilia Clarke are my girl crushes. Felicity is lucky that she has a good body of work and consistently gets good roles while not having any kind of public personal life or engaging in celebrity. Perhaps it’s the English way. I really adore her as an actress. I don’t think I can find fault in any film she’s been in. Oh wait, just one, the Nicolas Holt Eastern European film, but that wasn’t technically her fault. Terrible story. I too found out she was married a few months ago and is actually older than she is. I thought she was late 20’s, early 30’s. Blew my mind.
