Olivia Wilde is reaping the benefits of becoming a mother: falling in love again, blissful days of bonding, and beautiful skin! The new mom spoke with ELLE during the launch event for her new Conscious Commerce x Birchbox collaboration about a variety of topics, one of them being her amazing skin.
“I swear by this: Your skin gets better after you have a baby! I’m going to get SO many people pregnant!”
Wilde’s website directs shoppers to “purposeful products” and introduces them to people they think are “doing a great job at life.” She along with her best friend, Barbara “Babs” Burchfield co-founded the organization, and they describe it as their experiment in living and shopping with a conscious.
The actress continued her discussion about the perks of motherhood. “You know, people assume you have a baby, you give up the best version of yourself, and it’s absolutely untrue. I think you’re introduced to the best version of yourself, and it’s one of the many awesome things about becoming a mom.”
The 30-year-old has also made the decision to stop making bad movies. “Part of maturing is taking control of your life—I think it happens to people in their late twenties. You understand that you’re no longer living for anyone else. You’re living for yourself, and the art you’re creating in the world or whatever you do, and you start to consider it a little bit more. You just want it to be an accurate reflection of who you are. So I just started picking projects that felt more true to myself.”
