If you’ve ever wondered what Emma Watson’s private beauty routine entails, your very specific dream has come true.
Speaking to Into The Gloss, the actress revealed pretty much everything she likes and dislikes when it comes to grooming.
While Emma, who is also a feminist campaigner and UN Women’s ambassador, may look pretty damn flawless on the red carpet, she wants you to know she doesn’t wake up that way.
She told Into The Gloss:
In the Instagram era it’s so easy to edit your life so that it looks perfect. But I bleach my top lip and tweeze my eyebrows and you’d never get to see that, even though it’s a part of my routine. There’s still so much shame around the things you do to get ready while you’ve got a towel wrapped around your head. It’s important to me not to edit that out.
As for her hair? She uses something called Fur Oil.
“I’ll use that anywhere from the ends of my hair to my eyebrows to my pubic hair. It’s an amazing all-purpose product,” she said.
The oil, which has other celebrity followers like Gwyneth Paltrow, is said to soften the hair in intimate areas to allow for fewer ingrown hairs. Generally, it’s used for a more natural down-there look.
And it seems the actress tends to go au-natural wherever she can. Speaking about her makeup routine, Emma said she prefers ‘to see as much skin as possible’ when it comes to applying cosmetics.
“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve embraced my freckles much more and I want to be able to see them. When we were filming Beauty and the Beast, I insisted on keeping my freckles as a part of the movie,” she added.
And while you’d think someone like Emma Watson wouldn’t have time for much else other than her busy schedule, it seems the actress has quite a lot of down time.
I have a bath every single day of my life. And if I can have two or three—amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that. I’ll take phone conversations in the bath, anything.
Emma’s latest interview comes after the actress hit back at critics who claimed her recent photo shoot for Vanity Fair undermined her stance as a feminist.
One image showed the 26-year-old crossing her arms and revealing part of her cleavage.

Comments directed at the photo shoot included ‘I thought she was a feminist?’, but Emma told The Associated Press on Saturday that the controversy represented ‘a fundamental and complete misunderstanding of what feminism is’.
She told the BBC: “Feminism is about equality and it’s about choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women.”
You can get good odds on someone throwing a hissy fit about how she grooms her pubic hair within the next 24 hours.
