The actor doesn’t exfoliate but is still one of Hollywood’s most handsome men – don’t hate him
The Northern Irish actor has appeared in Marie Antoinette, 50 Shades of Grey, A Private War and, most recently, Wild Mountain Thyme. Married to composer Amelia Warner, Dornan lives in England and has three daughters who, by the sounds of things, leave him little time for grooming. The frontman for Boss fragrance spoke to EDGAR.
Not very well! When I’m doing movies, wearing make-up and being under hot lights for 12 hours, my skin usually breaks out a little bit.
We have brilliant people on set helping me, who are vigilant about cleaning my skin every day and applying stuff that feels nice. If it wasn’t for those professional people, I’d struggle more.
Yeah, I’m quite lucky as my skin usually holds up pretty well. Even as a kid I didn’t go through a spotty phase that most teenagers do. The only time my skin flares up is when I’m wearing make-up for movies.
I recently started wearing sun protection on my face every day because a make-up artist told me to. I wear Piz Buin SPF30 and I love the smell of it because it reminds me of skiing trips.
I barely do any of that [laughs]. When I remember to, I moisturise but I don’t exfoliate, I’m terrible! I’m really bad at taking care of my skin. I’m lucky that people take care of it for me at work and give me products to use.
I have three little kids so it’s tricky because they take all of my focus. Every morning I’m getting them ready for school so it’s really not about me. The last thing I think of is cleaning my face!
I love Boss The Scent Pure Accord. It smells fresh so it’s nice for the morning. It’s masculine, it’s got a lot of sensuality and I feel self-assured and confident when I wear it. It puts me in a good place, you know?
I love the exotic maninka fruit, I didn’t know what it was so I asked and now that I know it, I’m really passionate about it.
