Anna Friel thinks a face towel is the best beauty accessory.

The 'Look of Love' actress believes simply scrubbing her face with a small towel can help improve her skin.

Quizzed about her daily beauty regime, she said: "Most days it can be as simple as washing my face and moisturising. I always use a face cloth. I don't think there's a better or more simple device for daily exfoliation."

The 36-year-old beauty admits she doesn't have a specific secret to maintaining her glamorous looks, but credits daily maintenance such as good eating habits and avoiding the sun.

She explained to LOOK magazine: "There's no secret. It sounds boring but I really just focus on the basics - drinking lots of water, eating healthily, getting enough sleep and not exposing my skin to too much sun.

"I'm naturally quite freckly so I've always been really strict with sun care."

Anna is also committed to a healthy diet and will rarely be caught scoffing sweet treats such as cakes because she doesn't have a "sweet tooth".

She said: "I don't eat a lot of sugar or fizzy drinks. If I want to sweeten something I'll use grade four maple syrup, which has loads of health benefits. If I fancy something sweet I'll eat dried fruit or dark chocolate sometimes, but generally I'm more of a savoury person."

Anna has recently been annouced as the face of Trilogy.

“I’m always searching for pure, natural, ethically sourced products, but Trilogy is the first natural skincare brand I’ve ever used that that actually works.  My skin was really dehydrated, but after using the Trilogy range I can see and feel the difference – my skin is glowing,” she says.
