Mandy Moore’s Go-To Hydrating Products For Dry Skin

  • Mandy Moore told Prevention exactly how she combats dry skin and dry eyes.
  • She uses clean, oil-based Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser and protects her skin daily with Dr. Loretta Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 40.
  • The actress also uses Osea Undaria Algae Body Oil, Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm, and Osea Salts of the Earth Body Scrub for an at-home spa treatment.
  • “I’ve been leaning more on the healthy clean products and my skin loves it,” the 38-year-old said.

    It takes a lot of makeup to make 38-year-old Mandy Moore look like her 70-something This Is Us character, Rebecca Pearson. So it’s not surprising that when she’s off-screen, the actress likes to keep her skin feeling its best. That means she needs some serious clean beauty products that are up to the task–especially a stack of essentials that keep her extra hydrated after long shoot days.

    “I’ve been leaning more on the healthy clean products and my skin loves it,” Moore told Prevention. “I love lotions and potions and products. I’m a real girly girl in that sense, but I’ve kind of abandoned anything that isn’t clean, and I feel a difference.”

    Her go-to product duo? Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser and Dr. Loretta Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 40. She says she loves a good oil-based product that helps keep her skin ultra supple while battling that dry California air.

    “Living in a dry environment I’m constantly looking for ways to keep my skin hydrated and moisturized. I’ve been leaning on oils a little bit more,” Moore told Prevention.

    The Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is a gentle cleanser that calms, hydrates, and removes impurities and makeup without stripping the face of existing natural oils. The wash has marine peptides that boost hydration and chamomile essential oil to nourish and soothe redness and irritated skin.

    The A Walk to Remember actress also loves Dr. Loretta Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 40 and says it’s “a great sunscreen for your face that I use every day.” The sunscreen helps protect skin against pollution, light, climate, and irritants with Lipochroman, an antioxidant that protects from free-radical damage that causes fine lines and age spots. Plus, peptides hydrate and firm the skin, and zinc oxide protects from UVA/UVB irritants.

    The actress says she nourishes the rest of her body with Osea Undaria Algae Body Oil and Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm and she gets an at-home spa treatment with Osea Salts of the Earth Body Scrub.

    Though Moore is able to handle her dry skin with hydrating products, she admits that she’s been combatting dry eyes as well as dry skin. For years she experienced irritation, dryness, itching, and burning and became completely dependent on eye drops to get her through the day, which ultimately led to a diagnosis of dry eye disease.

    “As an actress, my eyes would bother me after long days at work. It would get to the point they would be so dry during takes that I would try to make myself cry to lubricate my eyes,” she told Prevention. “I’d be worried about blinking so much and it was constantly on my mind.”

    Moore set out to find something that would quench her dry eyes, but wasn’t invasive and had little downtime to accommodate her work schedule. She finally found relief by using OptiLight (for which she is a brand ambassador), a non-invasive light therapy that the brand says relieves dry, red, and itchy eyes.

    And these days Moore is learning to set boundaries in her life so she can feel good both physically and mentally.

    “As I’ve gotten older I’ve been better at drawing boundaries for myself and finding the ability to trust my instincts and my gut and say no when it feels appropriate and say yes and lean into that when it feels appropriate,” she told Prevention.
