Gemma Chan's Beauty Philosophy

Gemma Chan loves discovering new products and incorporating them into her regimen. "It can be very kind of meditative, those steps in a skincare routine, you can find real comfort in that," she tells PEOPLE.

But the L'Oréal spokeswoman is also focused on ways to achieve beauty from the inside out. "We all love to look great, but inner and the outer go hand-in-hand for me," she says. "I think it's so important to look after what's going on on the inside as well, and do whatever you need to do to nurture that. For me, that's reading." Ahead, her head-to-toe essentials.
