Washington: Kate Hudson has revealed how she is able to maintain her youthful glow even in her 30s.

The 33-year-old actress detailed her laid-back skincare routine, saying, “In my 20s, I probably wasn’t very nice to my skin.”

“As I got into my late 20s, I was like, ‘Oh, I should probably stay out of the sun. I should probably start doing some kinds of masks and getting more facials’,” a magazine has quoted her as saying.

Over time “I realized my skin does not like to be stimulated. I’m a soap-and-water girl, pretty much. I’ll use a gentle cleanser, and I don’t do any crazy serums.

“I just do a little moisturizer and a little eye cream. Obviously you’ve got to drink water and sleep -- that’s the hard part,” she said.

Like her actress mom Goldie Hawn, she said that has never put much value on getting all dolled up.

“I just remember seeing her put on makeup fast, and without a mirror, in a car,” she said.

“My mom’s no-fuss. . . I’ve never been a crazy makeup, spend-two-hours-in-front-of-the-mirror kind of girl.”

“I’ve never been fussy . . . I have moments when I get girly if I’m going out with my friends, but I’m about 5 to 15 minutes in the mirror,” she added.
