Secrets from the Set: Natalie Portman's Special Serum

03/07/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

Being on a different continent isn’t enough to keep Natalie Portman away from her favorite skin soothing serum. While on the London set of her new film The Other Boleyn Girl, the actress’s makeup artist phoned L.A.-based skin care line Arcona for emergency skin care help. Arcona over-nighted their Booster Serum, $68, a lightweight antioxidant cocktail that hydrates skin and boosts its ability to defend itself against stress, wind, pollution and other pitfalls of filming on horseback in the English countryside. Portman’s co-star Scarlett Johansson is also a long-time fan of the line. To see the full line, go to

Err..since when there’s pollution in the English countryside? I dare you, the person who wrote the article, to come over here and see with your ouwn eyes if it really exists pollution in our countryside. I also wonder what this person is referring to when he/she says “pitfalls”…

In regards to Catz comments:

There is pollution everywhere, I don’t care how blue the sky looks. And by pitfalls, I think author meant problems…

Companies will say ANYTHING if it allows them to slap a 68 dollar price tag on some MAGIC potion. And idiots will buy it. My mom has gorgeous skin and her secret is Oil of Olay with SPF. That’s what I use too and people think we’re sisters!!
If you pay more than 20 dollars for a moisturizer you’re being had or just like wasting money. The secret to beautiful skin is remove your makeup at night, wash your face in the am and pm. Exfoiliate! Can’t stress that enough. And hydrate with a decent moisturizer with spf. I mean wouldn’t you rather spend 68 dollars on dinner and a movie?

Dont get so sensitive Catz :-) come on, the weather here isnt great and it’s really damp so it’s not great for skin or hair you’ve got to admit..
