The Huffington Post interviewed actress Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love,” “Once Upon a Time”) for its new #nofilter series, and her answers about oral health, beauty products and snacks are super cute.
How many times a day do you brush/floss? And be honest!
Well, before this, I’ve always been a twice-a-day brusher. I try to floss every day — that’s not true — I don’t try to floss. If you tried to floss every day then you would. I do floss several times a week, but I know that we’re supposed to do it every day. Now that I’ve been educated about oral health, my habits are changing.
What’s one beauty product you absolutely swear by?
Extra-virgin organic coconut oil! It’s a miracle product. You can eat it, put it on your cuticles, shave your legs with it … it’s pretty stunning. I wash my face with it, put it on my lips and I also use it as moisturizer.
On days when you’re on set for hours, what essentials do you carry with you in your purse?
I always have a book, and I always have lots of snacks. There are snacks provided for us at work, but I always bring mine from home. Oh, and also my iPhone!
Goodwin is apparently working with Listerine and Oral Care America on a campaign to improve dental care access for low-income children, hence the question about brushing and flossing. I just dig that she uses coconut oil for everything (it is pretty magical)—and that she actually said that, instead of listing some expensive organic beauty balm made from crushed pearls and buffalo teeth, or whatever it is the stars are into these days …
