Sarah Jessica Parker has spilled the beans on her favourite beauty products and how she maintains that enviably fit body.

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Express, the actress says her best beauty tip is to “use any cream that says “elimination” in big bold letters on the jar! I swear by Garnier Ultra Lift cream. It targets wrinkles and dryness as well as being really inexpensive.”

And how does she keep that amazing mane tame?

“I like washing my hair with Bumble and Bumble’s Sunday Shampoo. It’s about the only shampoo that gives my hair that squeaky clean feeling that I had as a child. To condition, I use Kerastase Oleo-Relax Masque which isn’t cheap, but it really works on my dry, over-styled hair.”

The mother-of-three has taken a break from acting, and says being a mum is one of the best ways to maintain her killer figure – although like most women she’s feeling the effects of metabolism and age.

“I don’t think I’m in that great shape these days. I have to workout a lot harder. The body just doesn’t snap back in the way it used to when I was in my twenties!

“I try to do yoga three times a week, and my twin daughters act like arm weights.”

And it may come as a surprise that the Sex and the City star is not as into fashion as we thought!

“I never dress up that much,” she admits. “These days, I’m lucky if I go out to a friend’s house. Most of my day is spent as a mother, which requires an entirely different wardrobe.”

“Although I appreciate beautiful clothes,” she said. “I’m not into fashion as people expect me to be.”
