Jennifer Garner’s Version of True Beauty


For the glossy that religiously covers all things beauty, their selection of September cover girls was on point. Absolutely glowing, Jennifer Garnerposed for Alexi Lubomirski for the new issue of Allure and shared some of the reasons she's beautiful, both inside and out.

  1. She believes in female empowerment … and walking the carpet alone. “Sometimes it's a pain because my heels are so high and it would be really nice to have [Ben Affleck's] arm. And he's such a great date! But it can be too much. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become 'wife of.'”
  2. She has strong family values.”My mother has the healthiest lack of vanity I've ever known. No layers, no perms, no colors. Garner girls don't have tattoos.”
  3. She has strict but simple skincare regimes. “I'm starting to use more stuff that has things like alpha hydroxy [acid] or retinol. But I really don't believe that your skin-care products have to be the fanciest things in the world. I like drugstore products, especially sunscreen, because I use so much of it.
  4. She understands the elegance of the form of the female body. “There were times I had to watch every calorie that went into my body. Doing something like that again…it's not exactly on the top of my list.”
