Rising star Allison Williams has become the new face of the Simple skincare range, which is aimed at those with sensitive skin.
The fresh faced actress, who has found fame playing Marnie in the hit TV series Girls, reveals that she did not always have such a perfect complexion.
"I do have sensitive skin, actually, and it's been really hard to find products that don't make it inflamed, or red or dry, or make it break out," she told People. "It's really complicated, but I've learned that it's the case for more people than not. I don't know how many people have unproblematic skin -that's rare."
The 25-year-old also spoke about how her job makes good skincare vital.
"If you're an actress - and in some cases, this goes for all women - the only thing you can control about your skin is what you put on your face at the beginning of the day, and what you do when you take your makeup off," she said. "Otherwise, it's affected by stress, make-up artists, weather, pollution. The great thing about Simple products is that they protect you against those things - you can wipe it all off at the end of the day."
The actress also shared some of her strange beauty rituals. . These include washing her face while mid-flight, choosing to remain in her seat rather than use the bathroom.
“When I fly, halfway through the flight, I like to give myself a face wash,” Allison said. “I just sit there and turn toward the window and use a wipe!"
