With her flawless skin and luminous locks, it’s hard to believe the Courteney Cox is in fact, 48 years old.

Good thing enlisted the star to once again dispense tricks of the trade. “Hair is a tough one,” she admits. “I’m pretty lazy. I don’t even know how to use a blow dryer.”

To achieve trademark on-set loose curls, she refers to her Cougar Town guru, Brant Mayfield, who wraps big sections with a $130 Clipless Enzo Milano curling iron. To prepare for heat, he uses $27 Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray to add texture to just-washed hair.

“When your hair is dry from frequent blow drying, try a $16 Moroccan Oil treatment,” Cox advises. “It’s made of argan oil which is very nourishing and conditioning.” Other faves include $8 one-and-you’re-done lip moisture from Acca Kappa. “It really stays on and also has an SPF. I like the vanilla flavored one,” she gushes.

A self-professed former “sun worshiper,” the star relies on $85 NIA 24 Niacin-Powered Skin Therapy to help with hyperpigmentation and to improve skin’s texture and tone. “I’m actually a fan of all their products,” she says. “Their sunscreen is great!”
