While Cox admits that he loves getting ready for a fancy event, he is also comfortable not wearing makeup and embracing his natural beauty.
“I came from the gym yesterday and was sweating and just wearing my gym clothes, looked in the mirror and felt very beautiful. I had no makeup and my hair was a mess, but it felt very pretty. I think there's something about this moment of my life and about being single again. … I'm really not doing this to anyone else right now. I'm like, & # 39; I want to look cute to me and working out for myself and my health & # 39; & # 39 ;, she explains.

“Band-Aids are synonymous with taking care of yourself and taking care of others and me now, at this stage of my 47-year-old life, taking care of myself is super important. … Partnering with a company that cares about you and other people is really great too. … all you have to do is go to CVS and buy Band-Aids (RED) and 20 cents of that purchase will go to a full day of medicine for someone living with AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, ”she says.

I think every woman or non-binary person or even a man, if you want to, if you identify yourself as a man, should have a human hair wig that looks like their own hair that they can comb in case they have a bad day. of hair, ”she reveals.

In addition to aggressive products, the Netflix actress also avoids having facials before a big event. "Actually, I don't do facials. Sometimes facials can open the pores and destroy the skin," she teaches.
She practices some practices: having breakfast, sleeping a lot, drinking water and accumulating moisturizer. "It's about feeling good inside too," Cox teaches.
