Kate Walsh first broke out in 2005 with her portrayal of Dr. Addison Montgomery, the estranged wife of Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy. This led to her own series, Private practicewhich ran for 6 seasons, after which she had roles in Fargo, bad judge, 13 Reasons Why other The Umbrella Academy. Most recently, Walsh has graced our screens as Emily’s boss, Madeline Wheeler, on the popular Netflix streamer Emily in Paris.
After all these years on TV, Walsh knows a thing or two about keeping her skin screen-ready, so she sat down with Yahoo to discuss aging gracefully, her beauty routine and her most-loved skincare solutions.
“I feel like I’m living my best life, and I’m 54!” she said.
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970
To start your skincare routine off right, Walsh recommends Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970. “It retexturizes the skin and you pat it on — I do it every night and every morning,” shares the actress.
A cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all: exfoliates, hydrates and balances the pH of the skin. It’s the perfect prep step before any skincare or makeup application. Says Walsh, “I personally don’t do any fillers or Botox, and [with Biologique] I’ve seen massive improvement.”

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All Over Miracle Oil
Looking for a miracle? Walsh is a believer in one product in particular: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream All-Over Miracle Oil. “I use it all over my body…I’m a big fan of using oils on skin for hydrating!”
This silky “miracle oil” delivers intense, hydrating moisture to the body, face and hair, along with a delicately scented light floral fragrance and luxurious texture — almost like an at-home spa experience! It also has been shown in a clinical study to moisturize for 8 to 12 hours, so you can be sure that your skin will stay hydrated no matter where your busy day takes you.

Systane Complete Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops
“We think about hydrating our skin but we don’t think about our eyes,” observes Walsh. When in 2015 her vision started to feel blurry, Walsh visited an optometrist…who told her she has a condition called dry eyes, which stems from not producing enough tears to keep eyes lubricated. To combat this irritating dryness, the doc recommended Systane Complete Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops.
Made up of tiny, nano-sized droplets, each soothing drop of Systane Complete forms a matrix of protection across the entire eye surface, delivering optimal dry eye relief, providing fast hydration and ensuring tear evaporation protection. “What I love about Systane complete is that A, it’s preservative-free, but B, it is complete in that you only need one drop and it lasts eight hours,” says Walsh.

Watts Beauty 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid
“My mom is 88, and she’s always had great skin,” observed the Emily in Paris star. Her secret? Watts Beauty 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid. “It’s 100% pure hyaluronic acid, super cheap and it’s really great.”
Watts Beauty’s ultra-light formula contains the lowest high-weight hyaluronic acid, which absorbs quickly and blends easily with your favorite serums and creams. What’s the big fuss about hyaluronic acid, anyway? It’s simple — hyaluronic acid is known for its ultra-hydrating abilities, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid levels in skin decrease with age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and a dry, dull, crepey texture. Adding a pump of hyaluronic acid a day can gently plump skin, helping to restore its supple appearance and springy bounce.

Hydration is the name of the game in Kate Walsh’s skincare routine. “Bioeffect EGF Serum is another great find, especially because I don’t do cosmetic procedures…it’s super hydrating for your face.” This award-winning facial serum delivers visible results, utilizing the power of EGF (proteins that keep our skin young and healthy) to restore, repair, lift and plump, leaving skin with a youthful, healthy radiance.
According to the brand, in just 90 days, the serum can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 63% and improve elasticity by up to 68%, contributing to smoother, firmer and tighter skin.
