Naomi Watts, from actress to clean beauty entrepreneur
While filming the Netflix series “Gypsy” a few years ago, Naomi Watts developed rosacea. It was caused because of reapplying make-up several times a day and spending hours under hot lights on the set. Her skin condition got so bad that she began looking for natural beauty products to soothe her skin. As a result, she co-founded Onda, four clean beauty boutiques where you can find natural cosmetics containing limited toxins. Naomi Watts explains that we should feed our skin as carefully as we feed our bodies, and her natural ageless appearance is the best proof of that.
Like a mortal, she is also going through menopause
Naomi Watts speaks openly about the struggles of going through menopause and the stigma surrounding the natural hormonal changes that happen as we age. According to the mother-of-two, society makes older women feel “unsexy, infertile, crabby old ladies that should be sent out to pasture”. But with 50+, the ageless actress and producer is far from retirement. On the contrary, besides the Netflix film, Naomi Watts will star “Lakewood”, “Infinite Storm”, and the remake of the Austrian thriller “Goodnight Mommy”, and she affirms that menopause shouldn’t be a dirty word. In fact, Watts says women need support from each other. She explains that “we actually have wisdom and compassion that far outweighs youthful arrogance“. And adds, jokingly, “Along with some mood swings and floods of tears on the side”.
