Gillian Anderson is currently very much in the spotlight thanks to her stellar performance as Margaret Thatcher in Netflix's The Crown.

The actress, who stars as the country's first woman Prime Minister in the show's fourth season, clearly looks after her skin as it's nothing short of radiant.

So if ever you've wondered how she keeps her youthful glow in check, you're in the right place. Anderson has revealed that she uses one of the best tinted moistures to help her look fresh-faced.

The formula in question? None other than the iconic Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. "It's a big part of my life," she told Harper's Bazaar in 2017. "Every day I'm grateful for it."

Now available in 30 different shades, this is one of the best foundations for adding glow – NOT shine – and has just the right amount of coverage to make a difference when you ned to add a little something to your skin.

Although it was reformulated in 2019 to include a higher SPF and expand the shade range, Mercier herself didn't settle until it was perfect – according to Allure, she rejected 67 versions of the new formula before deciding on this one.

It's clear that the Anderson's top priority is moisture when it comes to skincare – she has also confirmed that she's a fan of one of the best moisturisers for dry skin by Clinique.

"Once I started seeing that my skin was suffering, I began to pay more attention to it," she told New Beauty back in 2016. "There’s a Clinique Moisture Surge Gel, which is kind of extraordinary for application in the afternoon, if you’re starting to feel like you’re drying up and need some hydration.”
