"The most important thing," says Washington, "is drinking a lot of water. I live on both coasts [in L.A. and Manhattan], so staying hydrated is big for me." Monthly facials help stave off the occasional breakout, as do Mario Badescu skin-care products and facials. "I'm not married to any particular line," she says, "but this was the first one I used regularly, so it's my touchstone brand. When I need the tried and true, I come back to it."
