12 08 emannuelle chriqui beauty tips tricks entourage movie

Read about the Entourage star's best beauty advice and how she's planning to age gracefully.

We got to sit down and chat with Canadian actress Emmanuelle Chriqui about life, beauty and aging in Hollywood. Here are the 34-year-old beauty's best tips and tricks!

What's your secret beauty weapon?

"I love the Tria Hair Removal Laser ($395, triabeauty.ca). It's laser hair removal at home! I'm a giant advocate of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal equals freedom. And the fact that you can have a really great product at home, that's Health Canada cleared...you really see differences in as little as two treatments and it's easy to use. For me it's great. I can bring it with me wherever I go, and I travel a lot."

How do you get your gorgeous glow?


What's the best beauty advice you've ever been given?

"Drink a lot of water and eat well. I was raised in a home where my mom made everything from scratch. I never have a meal without a salad. It's the greatest thing you can do for yourself. People eat really badly. I was recently in Africa, and there was a bottle of ketchup. The ingredients were tomatoes, vinegar and sugar. Look at the ingredients on a ketchup bottle here and it's 40 ingredients long. That's frightening. I'm a big advocate of reading labels. If you can't pronounce something on the label, don't eat it."

We know you love the environment. What's your favorite green beauty product?

"I'm loving Mineral Fusion (http://mineralfusion.com/). I love their body lotion and body wash. It's all very natural ingredients and the packaging is recyclable."

What does aging gracefully mean to you?

"It means embracing where you are at any age, finding a deep self love whether your 20 or 50 and accepting who you are."

What's the pressure like in Hollywood to look young forever, and how do you deal with it?

"I find it unfortunate, but it's real. I get asked all the time, being in my mid-thirties. How do I feel about plastic surgery and injectables? I feel like at this point in my life it's not for me. I really hope that I can age gracefully.

"I once asked a really big male producer 'What is your take on a woman aging in Hollywood?' and he said 'Don't do anything, and after 50, do something to keep your eyes open because the eyes are the window to the soul.' And I was like, 'I can handle that.' I kind of like that philosophy. I think there's something interesting about getting older. I think it looks great and I think you play better roles. I'm excited about the future."

What kind of skin advice can you offer older women?

"I had super acne-prone skin and I stopped using moisturizer because I was really oily. So I just use under eye cream and keep my skin really clean."

Do you miss anything about living in Canada?

"I don't miss the cold or snow. I don't miss the seasons at all. But my family is here, that's the thing I miss the most."

Have you heard any rumours about the upcoming Entourage movie that you can share?

"It looks like there will be a film but the script isn't written fully yet. So I cant say definitively when but it does seem like there will be a movie."

Okay, then what do you hope will happen between Sloane and Eric?

"I would love to see them just be together, with no drama, and have a little baby that looks like a mixture of them. It would just be really nice, because they've struggled so much. I'd be curious to see what happens if she has the child and if he's in her life."
