Connecting To Nature
Connecting with nature is truly the good stuff that lights up the soul. If her Instagram feed is anything to go by, the actress frequently takes time outdoors, with all those toes in the sand and green landscapes.
“From age 16 on, I’ve worn sunscreen. I use SPF 30 because I don’t think the higher SPFs are necessarily more effective.Berry shared in an interview.
“My meditative practice is my way to remain strong and centered for myself as well as my children when things are overwhelming. I hope that everyone will take a moment today to breathe—you deserve it.”she explained.
She’s Has a Long Relationship With an Esthetician
Berry credits the famous esthetician Olga Lorencin for her radiant skin and says that this may be the most important contributing factor.
“I always say that your serum and moisturizer are laughing at you if you don’t have [your] skin exfoliated first,”In a conversation on Instagram, the Esthetician even dropped a golden nugget of wisdom and shared the importance of exfoliating.
For Berry, healthy eating goes beyond maintaining her physique. She has spoken openly about the diabetes diagnosis and how the keto diet has helped her manage the condition.
Berry regularly shares a recipe or two ‘pon the gram and has expressed her love for skin-boosting eats like bone broth, filled with protein and collagen.

From the looks of her personal gram, Berry’s beverage of choice is a cup of hot tea. There may not be a direct correlation between tea and good skin, though tea is beneficial for many other holistic reasons.
Cool Skin Gadget Thingies
