1. She prioritises moisturising products

Hydration is key. 'Even with all the fancy creams I’ve been gifted over the years, once I started seeing that my skin was suffering, I began to pay more attention to it,' the actress told New Beauty in 2016. 'There’s a Clinique Moisture Surge Gel, which is kind of extraordinary for application in the afternoon, if you’re starting to feel like you’re drying up and need some hydration.' This super light gel cream contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, caffeine, and humectants to keep your face looking plump and radiant without feeling heavy on the skin.

2. She considers tinted moisturiser another staple

Basically, Gillian says the key to her amazing glow is courtesy of the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. 'It's a big part of my life,' the actress told Harper's Bazaar UK in 2017 when speaking of the product. 'Every day I'm grateful for it.' With ingredients like macadamia and kukui seed oils for hydration and solid dose of SPF 30, it's no wonder the formula makes Gillian glow. 'It feels natural, moisturising, smooth and silky and gives great coverage without making it feel like I’m wearing anything,' she told New Beauty. 'That’s a pretty big statement for me.' Plus, the pigment gives her skin a blurred, pore-free look without making her shiny or oily over time.

3. She isn't picky about anti-ageing


Gallery: I've Dyed My Mum's Hair For 8 Years, and Josh Wood Hair Colour Is the Best We've Ever Used (PopSugar)

a close up of a person: Every 2 months or so, my mum, Fiona, asks when I'm coming home next (we're in a coronavirus support bubble FYI). The reason? Besides getting to hang out, of course, she wants to schedule herself into my packed (honestly, never packed) diary so I can dye her hair. Ever since British colourist Josh Wood released his own at-home hair colour brand back in February 2018, I've been her dedicated colourist. Even though I don't personally dye my hair at-home (although, I do love using many other Josh Wood Colour products), Fiona and I have both become total devotees to Wood's box dye. And I'm convinced that after seeing Fiona's results, it will throw all of your box dye judgements out of the window.

'I think in Europe, in general, there’s a sense that women who age naturally can be beautiful, whereas I’m not so sure that’s the perception in America, specifically in L.A.,' she said in 2016. 'I think that it’s seen as a flaw, somehow—like wrinkles are a flaw.' That said, her healthy perspective about getting older doesn't mean she neglects her anti-aging regimen. 'I started using a mixture over the years of Clinique and Estée Lauder. It’s not a huge part of my life, but I’ve began making an attempt to use some of the stuff that’s out there. And you know, I think it works. I think my skin definitely feels better,' she told New Beauty. Noted.

Since fans were so curious about her skincare situation, Gillian detailed the likes of her Sex Education on-set routine in a 2019 Instagram post. 'All the products necessary to cleanse, tone, moisturise, prime, and polish [are] from Sarah Chapman’s luxurious range,' she wrote in the post.

The actress also gave a shoutout to the brand Bali Balm for her hydrated lips. She credits Dr. Organic for keeping her whole body so soft and smooth, saying her favourite from the line is an 'amazingly hydrating skin lotion for all-over body moisturising.'

5. She pays attention to her body and mind wellness

Not only does the actress meditate every morning to keep her #calm, but Gillian is also a fan of squeezing in exercise (when she can!), she said in an interview with New Beauty. 'I don’t try that hard to stay in shape,' Gillian told The Daily Mail. 'I go through stages of yoga a few times a week and throw in some running.' She'll hire a personal trainer if she's taking on a new role, but for the most part she works out when she feels like it. So yeah, Gillian is definitely making moves for a radiant, happy, and gorgeous self both inside and out.
