Angelina Jolie is known for her flawless skin that defies the laws of gravity and the constraints of time. After watching her stun on the red carpet and basically get younger year after year, we finally figured out what the star’s secret is–she has a really, really good dermatologist.
The Oscar-winning actress credits dermatologist Rhonda Rand, M.D., F.A.A.D, for her glowing, youthful complexion and says she’s been seeing her since she was young. “[She’s] who my mother [Marcheline Bertrand] brought me to when I was little with my first scar,” she told InStyle back in March. “To have somebody who is very encouraging of being as natural as possible has really helped me, I think.”

Rand revealed Jolie’s best-kept beauty secrets, and one of them involves a daily anti-aging, antioxidant-rich sunscreen that was designed by Rand herself!
“When [Jolie] knew she was going to have an acting career, she wanted to take care of her skin in the most sensible way,” Rand tells Refinery29. “She’s lucky she has her mom’s beautiful, olive skin. She’s always been such a natural beauty, so she didn’t ever have to do much. It was really just sunscreen, proper cleansing with a mild, gentle cleanser, antioxidants, sometimes glycolic [acids], and natural products. Some alpha hydroxy [acids] are good too, and they’re very natural. She doesn’t need major scrubs or products with lots of chemicals.”
"When she travels, she takes a good skincare regimen with her [including] alpha hydroxys or antioxidants. There’s a product of mine that she loves [called] Dermbasics RR Perfection Cream. It’s a chemical-free antioxidant sunscreen and that’s a good thing to travel with," Rand says.
Rand applauds Jolie's daily sunscreen usage and says that it's one of the reasons why her skin is so supple and even.
"She’s olive skinned like her mom, but it’s not like she lets herself get dark. She’s been so good about using sunscreen from such an early age to protect her skin," Rand explains. "She knew that the sun is not good for skin in general — in terms of pigmentation problems and that sort of thing. She’s also good about wearing hats, which is so important. She hydrates a lot and does a lot of good moisturizing, but again, it’s the sun protection that’s going to stop you from aging more than anything."
Jolie also loves Rand's Glycolic Acid Pads, which she always uses when she's traveling. They gently exfoliate, moisturize and assist in the removal of excess oil and residue on the skin while delivering additional skin enhancement benefits with its antioxidant-rich formula.
"They remove the stratum corneum, increase collagen and elastin, keep pores clean and appearing small, and even out discoloration," Rand says of Jolie's favorite product.
In addition to using these amazing anti-aging and protective skincare products, Rand says that Jolie's minimalist makeup usage is another important reason why her skin always looks so good.
"The thing about [Jolie] is she never wears makeup unless she’s working — it’s probably another reason her skin looks good. She’s also good about removing makeup," Rand says. "I know her makeup artist is super careful about what she puts on her skin and takes good care of it when she's working."
