Angelina Jolie's skin secrets are finally out, courtesy of her long-time dermatologist Rhonda Rand. In an interview with Refinery29, the doctor revealed the actress' surprisingly minimal routine, along with many fun facts about how she maintains her stellar complexion.
According to Rhonda, Angelina started her beauty journey young. The actress also apparently inherited good skin genes from her mother. "She’s always been such a natural beauty, so she didn’t ever have to do much," says the derm. Hence, Angelina's skincare routine was pared down to the essentials. "It was really just sunscreen, proper cleansing with a mild, gentle cleanser, antioxidants, sometimes glycolic [acids], and natural products," Rhonda reveals. "Some alpha hydroxy [acids] are good too, and they’re very natural. She doesn’t need major scrubs or products with lots of chemicals."
Further, Rhonda shares that the actress never wears makeup when she's not working. "She’s also good about removing makeup. I know her makeup artist is super careful about what she puts on her skin and takes good care of it when she's working," the dermatologist adds.
And when the actress is traveling, Rhonda says that Angelina never forgets to apply sunscreen and to exfoliate. "She knew that the sun is not good for skin in general—in terms of pigmentation problems and that sort of thing. She’s also good about wearing hats, which is so important."
For this, Angelina apparently loves Dermbasics' RR Perfection Cream, a chemical-free sunscreen with antioxidants, and the same brand's Glycolic Acid Pads 20%, an exfoliating product that keeps her collagen production, skin tone, and pore health in check.

AVÈNE SPF50 Cleanance Sunscreen, P1822, SM Makati; MURAD Rapid Resurfacing Peel, P2550, Rustan's
In terms of treatments, Angelina once told InStyle that she dealt with pigmentation when she was pregnant. To deal with this, Rhonda gave her a photofacial or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). "We’re super careful. None of these things change the quality of your skin or cause scarring," assures the derm.
Overall, the doctor credits her client's ageless complexion to starting proper skincare early and keeping healthy beauty habits in check. Noted!
