Nicole Kidman truly is one of our national treasures.

The Oscar-winning actress, who turns 52 on June 20th, first graced our screens starring in eighties hits including BMX Bandits and long-running soap, A Country Practice before taking the world by storm and becoming one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

As if her impressive resume and gorgeous family weren’t enough, Nicole also continues to look flawless and like a fine wine, keeps getting better with age.

Speaking to Glamour in 2018, she said, “As we get older we can still look good, be healthy and vibrant and appealing. Nobody wants to look like you’ve had the life sucked out of you. I just say it’s about gracefully ageing, because it can be fun!”

So what’s her secret? Well, she’s a proper Aussie when it comes to her number one beauty must-have: sunscreen.

“I’m just so religious about it. It’s just how I was raised, and it’s why my skin now is, I think, far less damaged than it could have been. Because I still go to the beach, it’s not that I don’t go to the beach, and it’s not that I’m not outside.”
