Nicole Kidman @neutrogena’s Everyday is SUNday Symposium

On Sunday Nicole Kidman spoke at the #EverydayisASUNday Symposium at Los Angeles’s Lombardi House.  The panel, which was moderated by Extra’s Renée Bargh and featured The Myths of Happiness author, Sonja Lyubomirsky, discussed everyday sun healthy habits and incorporating sunscreen into daily life.  Guests were able to try out numerous lotions, sprays, and sticks, including Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion SPF30!  Privately Kidman spoke with smaller group about beauty, wellness, motherhood, and working beyond an actress’s “shelf-life.”

THE POWER OF SCENT  Little known fact:  Kidman has been creating her own perfumes and body oils since childhood.  She would source local health food stores for natural fragrant ingredients.  “I’ve always loved perfumes and I also like oils,” she shares. “I believe in the power of a smell mixed with an oil, and what it can do with your psyche and even for sleep.”  While she is not married to one particular fragrance, a constant in her beauty routine is pure coconut oil.  Applying it to her hair and skin, she loves its sexy, beachy scent.  “It makes me feel good and reminds me of being a teenager,” she remenisces.  But fragrance is not limited to the women in her home.  “I like smelling good and my husband likes smelling good.  We’re a ‘smell good’ family,” she laughs.

STRESS RELEASE   When Kidman was seventeen her mother, Janelle Anne, was diagnosed with breast cancer.  “It was an incredibly sad time for our family,” she recalls.  As a result, her father, Antony, a clinical psychologist and author, began researching the connection between stress and cancer, and encouraged the family to practice meditation.  Kidman practices twenty minutes of meditation every day.  “If I’m working I do it at lunchtime.  And everyone knows that I go.  I eat and I go meditate.”  Another thing that Kidman’s father introduced to the family was exercise.  “I started exercising as a teenage girl really, kind of against my will,” she shares, “But I did it … It just became a part of who I am and I attribute that to him.”  These days she tries to get her daughters to run with her.  “Five minutes even, its just a good little thing to put into their lives.”

DON’T WORRY  Kidman, who always knew that she wanted to become an actress, began working in the industry at the age of fourteen.  Remembering her awkward years (being a 5’11″American-born Australian teenager with a wild mane of curls), people would frequently say to her, “When you’re older you’ll be really pretty.”  Huh?  While we have seen her transform into more ordinary characters on film, it is hard to imagine Kidman as anything but stunning in real-life.  Speaking to her 20-year old self she would advise, “There’s a long life ahead.  Take care of yourself and know that you will make it to 50 and beyond,” adding, “You don’t have to worry so much.” (more…)
