Kerry Washington has been our girl crush for ages. Any time the gorgeous actress is spotted at an event, you can surely bet the image is tucked away in a folder on our hard drives. So imagine how stoked we were to not only see her in the Vanity Fair May 2012 TV Issue, but to also see her guest editor spot on StyleBistro.com where she dished on some of her beauty secrets.
With credit cards in hands and mouse at the ready to purchase every single product she mentioned, we quickly found out that her major must-haves already exist in our kitchens. So what does the Scandal actress swear by? Water and fish oil pills.
“I just think there are few things that are as important to beauty as being hydrated,” the actress tells StyleBistro. Fish oil may taste like liquid poison, but we’re totally going to woman-up and take them. “That’s really helped in terms of my skin. I had eczema as a kid and sometimes if I get really stressed out or if I’m not watching what I’m eating it can flare up…the fish oil helps me to have enough healthy fatty acids,” the actress says.
As for the stuff you can buy in the department store, Washington swears by Giorgio Armani foundation and hair products by Rene Furterer.
