Nicole Kidman is one of those A-list actresses who just doesn't seem to age. As well as her many movie roles, she's found success on telly in hit series Big Little Lies, also starring Reese Witherspoon. We can't wait for series two of the show, which ended in such a dramatic fashion. Now 51, the Australian actress is looking more youthful than ever, revealing the key to her flawless skin is all down to the skincare and makeup products she uses to fend off ageing. Nicole recently told American Glamour: "As we get older we can still look good, be healthy and vibrant and appealing. She added: "Nobody wants to look like you’ve had the life sucked out of you. I just say it’s about gracefully aging—because it can be fun!"

The mum-of-four has also spoken of the importance of sunscreen and hydration, previously telling W magazine: "Obviously, you need to use certain creams, and you need to use sunscreen, and you need to take care of yourself more. And that's why even something that's hydrating, because my skin tends to be dry, and my lips tend to be dry, so anything that says hydrating I'm like yes, please."

Nicole also listed a few products, one being a lip shine from Target and Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Face Cream. Protecting herself from the sun's rays is also essential for Nicole and it's something that she has passed onto her daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret who she shares with husband Keith Urban.

"Because I'm so fair, I recommend even my girls, like my little girls, they wear the sunscreen too, because one of them is dark, and one of them is fair," the star explained. "I'm just so religious about it. It's just how I was raised, and it's why my skin now is, I think, far less damaged than it could have been. Because I still go to the beach, it's not that I don't go to the beach, and it's not that I'm not outside."

She especially relied on SPF while filming her Emmy Award-winning TV show Big Little Lies, noting that Neutrogena supplied the entire cast with products during filming. Speaking of the beauty tips she has learnt from the cast, Nicole told Hello Giggles: "Reese [Witherspoon] and I do not like brown lipstick. We never go into the brown hues," adding that the friends much prefer pink shades. "I also love rosy cheeks," she revealed. "I’m always saying, “Can I have more blush please? More. More.” They are like, “It’s plenty, Nicole.”
