Kate Hudson Shares Her ‘Absolute Favorite’ Product for Glowing Skin at 43

Prevention logo Prevention 6/8/2022 Kayla Blanton

We love a luminous highlighter just as much as the next makeup mogul, but nothing beats a bare-faced natural glow. Kate Hudson has the ethereal look down to a science, and its partially thanks to a super easy exfoliation step. Once a week, the Almost Famous star uses a Goop Glow 15% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel Pad, and after a few quick swipes, she’s beaming and ready for bed.

The actress recently shared the low-maintenance hack on her Instagram Story, per People. She called the pads, which are pre-soaked with 15% glycolic acid—an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that gently buffs away dead skin— “an absolute favorite.” For those who are oily or acne-prone, they can also keep pores gunk-free. They have a textured side for intense exfoliation and a smooth side for a gentle skin refresh.

Hudson personally concentrates the exfoliation on her chin, cheeks, and chest, and replenishes the areas with moisture by following up with the Hydrating Radiance Juice Beauty Cocktail Concentrate, a collaboration she recently launched with the brand.

With over 1,000 Sephora customer reviews, the peel pads have a 4.3-star rating. So plenty of people wised up to their magic before Hudson could spread the word. “I’ve tried several of goop’s products, and this one is by far the best. I highly recommend. You will wake up with GLOWING skin!!” one shopper raved. “This is my skin staple. I’m 39, & people think I’m 25. This gets rid of my dull skin, dark spots, & lessens the size of my pores,” another added. “Amazing!!! My skin looks refreshed when I wake up. Like I had the best night sleep ever,” someone else wrote.

And while glycolic acid is certainly the pads’ star ingredient, they also contain antioxidant-rich Australian Kakadu plum, which is chock-full of vitamin C, as well as hydrating hyaluronic acid to curb any potential irritation.

With that being said, there’s a reason Hudson only breaks them out once a week. 15% is a pretty high AHA concentration, and over-exfoliation is a common skincare mistake—one that can wreck your moisture barrier and increase your skin’s sensitivity. “The key is to be gentle. Slow and steady wins the race,” Suzanne Friedler, M.D., of Advanced Dermatology P.C. in New York City previously told Prevention.
