Eva Mendes on Skin Care

28 November 2014

Actress Eva Mendes became a proud mum to Esmerelda back in September – now the 40 year old beauty has spoken out about parenthood and her top tips for keeping her skin in check while she’s busy raising her newborn.

Eva surprised many when she and actor Ryan Gosling (the baby’s father) decided against hiring a nanny to help raise their daughter. She said: “Esmerelda has two amazing grandmothers and incredible aunties who come over and really help me.

“But as far as a nanny or night nurse, for me that part of being a mother at this early stage is the struggle of not being able to sleep and not knowing what I’m doing and really going through it with her and battling out those nights”.

As for her skin, Eva commented that she enjoyed following easy homemade Skin Care regimes during her pregnancy and has kept them up since giving birth.

“I use coconut oil as a moisturiser and I combine yogurt and sea salt to exfoliate”, she said – it’s no wonder her skin always looks so flawless.

Like Kate Moss, Eva is also a big fan of using ice water to solve puffy, tired eyes, having picked up the tip from a makeup artist in the past
