In a “New York Times” profile this week, the 33-year-old actress, producer and activist laid bare her all-natural, barely-there beauty routine ― and it’s shockingly affordable.

True Botanicals ― a female-founded, all-natural, non-toxic skincare company ― has become Wilde’s brand of choice, for which she now serves as a brand ambassador. In an Instagram post Tuesday, the actress wrote that the everyday products we choose to use are “a political act.”

“Standing up for our health, and the environment, and the animals typically used to test, is a political act,” Wilde wrote. “I mean, so is recycling and not buying tabloids, you feel me? The choices are ours. We deserve better. Not to mention, this is a female-founded, owned, and operated company. Can I get a hell yea?”

Wilde kicks off her morning with the brand’s Hydrating Cleanser followed by the hydrating Nutrient Mist. For her hair, she turns to True Botanicals’s Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner.

“I do enjoy the ritual of my morning. It helps me wake up psychologically as much as physically,” said the busy star, who’s recently served as the executive producer for “Fear Us Women,” a documentary about a volunteer in an all-female Kurdish army, as well as produced and starred in upcoming crime drama “A Vigilante,” which premieres later this year.
