Charlize Theron: “Wearing perfume is my feel-good gesture par excellence”

The face of Dior’s J’Adore perfume since 2004, Charlize Theron cultivates a healthy lifestyle every day. Exclusively, the 47-year-old actress reveals her beauty habits.

Marie Claire: What time do you get up in the morning?

Charlize Theron: Very early. My two children have to get ready to take a bus that takes them to school at 7 am. But I love this.

Do you go out without makeup?

Most of the time, because after dropping off my kids, I go straight to the gym.

How do you take care of your skin?

My first rule: I never go out without having protected it with an SPF. This is advice that my mother hammered at me from a very young age. She is part of this generation who learned the hard way sun damage to the skin – especially living in South Africa. I also watch that she is always clean and hydrated. Finally, to keep it beautiful, I need to move a lot and sweat a lot.

Do you follow a special diet?

I was raised by a mother who always cooked fresh products. I kept this habit of healthy eating, even if I don’t forbid myself a burger when I feel like it.

To relax yourself ?

I already have the chance to be able to relax, being supported by women (grandmother, godmothers) who like to take care of my children. I am infinitely grateful to them for taking them to the dance, which allows me to finish a book. I have also been doing Transcendental Meditation for two years and it has really changed my life. Whether I practice for five minutes or twenty, the effect is there.

Do you wear perfume every day?

No, but I really like perfume and I wear it as often as possible – except at the gym, so as not to annoy other people who work out. It’s my gesture”feel good” par excellence.

What particularly touches you in the new J’Adore?

J’Adore Parfum d’Eau is a superb innovation, very noble.

The women who have inspired you the most?

My mother, probably. And personalities like Dian Fossey (famous American primatologist, editor’s note) and Jane Goodall (British ethologist and anthropologist, editor’s note), who were talked about a lot in South Africa when I was a child. These women knew how to leave the comfort zone to which society destined them to really wet their shirt.

What values ​​would you like to pass on to your children?

Self-awareness. That they understand who they are, where they come from and that they know how to show humanity and empathy. I am lucky that they are already naturally very “smart”.

What roles would you like to see women offered more often?

I think all actresses would like roles that are more true to their reality, rather than those clichéd scripts that have been thrust upon them for so many years.
