With the popularity of superhero movies these days, we have an amazing new lineup of celebrities portraying strong female badasses. Many of them are really into eco-friendly and cruelty-free beauty products to keep them looking fierce on camera. Here is a list of favorite green beauty products of three prominent actresses who are currently involved in the Marvel Universe, including the legendary Cate Blanchett who is starring in the Thor: Ragnarok movie which launched on November 2.
Thor’s Natalie Portman
The first in this list of powerful female actresses who are eco-beauty lovers is Natalie Portman who stars in the Thor movie series as Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster. She’s been a long time fighter for the planet and is a vegetarian.
Portman’s favorite moisturizer is Pai Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream because it is organic and she really enjoys the natural floral and herbal fragrance from the ingredients. She also enjoys the Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil and Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Rapid Radiance Mask, if traveling. She also loves Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Liquid Castile Soap because of its versatility–you can bathe with it and also clean the sink!
Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow
Next on our list is Gwyneth Paltrow who has starred as Tony Stark’s assistant, Stark Enterprises vice president, and lover in all three standalone Iron Man movies and The Avengers movie. Since her acting debut 1990, she’s barely aged, if at all, in her 27-year acting career.
Aside from living an eco-friendly lifestyle, she also founded the clean skincare company Goop, which is also a curated site for all clean beauty, fashion and lifestyle products. In a recent Beauty Editor article, she revealed two of her favorite products which are: Goop by Juice Beauty Revitalizing Day Moisturizer: “[It] contains palmitoyl tripeptide-5, vitamins E and C, and a linseed extract, which help with firming.” And the May Lindstrom Skin The Blue Cocoon: “…[because] it’s so good to soothe skin after exfoliating.”
Thor’s Cate Blanchett
And finally, we have Cate Blanchett who is starring in the Thor: Ragnarok movie where she’s playing, Hela, the Asgardian Goddess of Death. She is a big fan of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment: “I use it on my lips, elbows, and heels. During allergy season, it helps reduce redness around my nose and eyes,” according to a Beauty Editor Article. This product is also a favorite of Natalie Portman’s for overall moisturization.
Blanchett is also loyal to the ecobeauty brand, Dr. Hauschka. Here are some of her favorite products from their skincare line: Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream and Dr. Hauschka Night Serum for their skin-softening formulas and delicious natural fragrances.
She also makes sure to stay hydrated, does regular herbal lymphatic cleanses, and exfoliates her skin with a Clarisonic Brush to remove dead skin cells. These are really good lifestyle habits to develop to keep the skin detoxed and to even out skin tone. Eating a lot of fruit, leafy vegetables, low amounts of meat, if any, and regular exercise seems to be staple lifestyle habits that all of the above actresses swear by.
Regardless of what role these actresses play, they all represent strong, intelligent, competent, and killer female characters who we can all admire. With all of them sharing a love for green beauty products, maybe there is something that we can all learn from them and how to keep our natural beauty timeless and intact.
