How Ashley Tisdale Has Evolved Into Her Most Natural (And Happiest) Self

How Ashley Tisdale Has Evolved Into Her Most Natural (And Happiest) Self

Ashley Tisdale is feeling merry and bright this holiday season, both literally and figuratively. She’s literally glowing as she promotes Neutrogena’s new Bright Boost collection, a line of products powered by Neoglucosamine to gently resurface, re-texturize and replenish skin with hydration. And figuratively, her present and future is bright, as well. The 34-year-old actress talks to us about her beauty routine, her New Year’s intentions (she doesn’t make resolutions), her upcoming projects and how—finally—she found self-love.

Let’s talk skincare. How has Neutrogena’s Bright Boost collection helped your skin? When do you use it/need it the most?
Obviously, as we head into our 30s, our skin tends to get dull, so what I love about the Neutrogena Bright Boost collection is that it is created by millennials for millennials to address that – it helps even out the skin tone and also helps with hydration.
What’s your favorite product from the collection and why?
I am a big fan of the Neutrogena Bright Boost Gel Cream and the Illuminating Face Serum. Within a week of using them together, my skin totally brightened up!

Can you wear it under makeup?
For me, it’s all about skin prep before makeup. What I love about the Neutrogena Bright Boost Illuminating Face Serum is that it really hydrates your skin, especially if you have committed any “skin sins,” like not drinking enough water. This will totally help brighten your skin before you apply any foundation or concealer.
 
What makes this a millennial-friendly product range?
I think the packaging and the fact that it is created by millennials for millennials, and not just someone in a lab creating what they think we need. It’s created by those who need it, which I think really comes through in the product. For me, it’s something that I love being able to use, especially when you wear a ton of makeup for work like I do – my skin will get dull, and I do have trouble areas like evening out my skin tone, so I feel this line really helps me with all of that.
 
What’s your daily skincare/beauty routine?
My daily routine is obviously washing my face using a gentle face wash, which is also what I love about this line because the Bright Boost Resurfacing Micro Polish is really soft and gentle. I am not a big fan of scrubs that are too abrasive and scrape your face, so this one is perfect because it’s really gentle and I feel I can use this weekly and then I just use the Gel Cream and Illuminating Face Serum, then go out and do my day. Then the one thing at night that I do is always take off my makeup – no matter what! So even if you can’t get to products, I would say just wash your face because leaving makeup on your skin overnight is just not great.
Do you have any beauty hacks you can share?
I think for me it’s just drinking enough water. I drink 1.5 liters of water a day and I carry a big bottle with me throughout the day, so I know how much water I drink. What you eat and finding out what you are sensitive to food wise is important, too, because your skin is a reflection of what you are ingesting. So if something breaks you out, doing a journal of what you ate that day and seeing how your skin reacts is helpful. And really when it comes to products and skincare, I am not a big believer in having twenty things you need to do to your face at night. I am a big believer in quality over quantity and being very specific to what your skin’s needs are.
Also, we are often taught to dry out face with a wash cloth but I have had a dermatologist say that is actually not good for you and it does create wrinkles more than it doesn’t, so I tend to wash my face and let it air dry as much as possible before applying creams, serum and SPF and so on. And if you want to use a towel, I would say to gently pat it with a towel vs rubbing your face with it.
 
You’re in “Carol’s Second Act” and “Happy Merry Whatever” currently. What do you have in the pipeline for 2020?
For me, I love playing the characters that I am playing. I always dreamt of being on a TV series, let alone two TV series, which is pretty wild, so I hope to continue doing that. Then, if I have time in between those production schedules, then I hope to do a cool indie movie. I am exploring things that I personally want to do in the lifestyle area, so I am excited to see what happens with that.
 
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? Holiday plans?
I feel like I have gotten to a point where I am my most natural self. I don’t have extensions and I have been letting my hair air dry, which is wild because I don’t think I have let my hair air dry for about fifteen years because I have really curly hair. I love my curly hair now, so whenever I have time off, I just let it go. So I think for me, it’s still self-exploring and self-love. I think one aspect is that you can use products that obviously make you feel good but really it’s about feeling good about yourself at the end of the day.
 
And last but not least, what to you is the greatest luxury in life and why?
My greatest luxury right now is being able to work where I live. These days things don’t always shoot in Los Angeles and I have a lot of friends who are away a lot, so for me to be able to do two series that I love and have them be on the same lot, is pretty amazing. You may not think of that as being a luxury but I have a friend who I haven’t seen in eight months because she has been gone for work, shooting projects and hasn’t been home at all. So it may seem like a small thing but I love it because I am able to see my husband and be home and see my family while I am also working, so it’s a very exciting thing to be able to do.

Ashley Tisdale Admits ‘Merry, Happy,Whatever’ Was One Of Her ‘Most FulfillingRoles’: I Got To Be In The Moment

Ashley Tisdale Admits ‘Merry, Happy,Whatever’ Was One Of Her ‘Most FulfillingRoles’: I Got To Be In The Moment

The new Netflix series ‘Merry, Happy, Whatever’ shows Ashley Tisdale in impressive moments of comedy & emotion. She spoke to HL about her latest role.

Ashley Tisdale takes on the holiday season as a newly single woman who is in the process of discovering her true self — while dealing with her family of wildly different personalities, of course! In the Netflix sitcom Merry, Happy, Whatever, Ashley stars as Kayla Quinn, the middle daughter of the Quinn family, led by their strong-willed, tough-loving father Don, played by the icon that is Dennis Quaid. Early in the series, Kayla’s husband stuns her by demanding a divorce (in front of her whole family), which leads Kayla down a road of self-discovery, which ends in an emotional moment when she comes out as gay to her family. Interestingly, Ashley, along with the rest of the cast, was unaware of her character’s arc and “figured out who she was as the same time.”

“I only knew the first episode because Tucker [Cawley] wouldn’t let us in on what was going to happen with our characters, which is really cool because sometimes if you know the arc of the character, you’re almost a couple steps ahead. Whereas I got to be in the moment with her trying to figure it out,” Ashley explained in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.com. “She’s trying to figure out who she is and she’s in a self-identity crisis. I was trying to figure out who she was at the same time as well, so it was kind of like we did it together.”

“But I have to say, yeah, it was one of the most fulfilling acting roles that I’ve really ever gotten to do because I think a lot of the roles that I have done in the past have been very strong characters and they know who they are and there isn’t this, ‘Who am I?’ That’s what I usually bring to a role because I’m pretty confident person and I really know what I like, I know what I want,” Ashley continued, referencing her previous roles such as the determined Sharpay Evans in High School Musical and Maddie Fitzpatrick in Suite Life Of Zack and Cody. “With Kayla, it was just such a different situation where I got to really add things in there.”

Ashley revealed that she found out about her character’s story arc when she was tipped off by someone in wardrobe who dished that they would need to cut her hair mid-season. “I feel like there hasn’t really been anything on TV where the journey of someone finding out that they are gay is documented. I think that was really different,” she explained. “I really cared about Kayla and I really respected her as a character, and I wanted to do [the coming out scene] in the most in the most authentic way.”

The actress added that playing the role “means so much” to her. “Acting is all about being someone else and getting into someone else’s shoes, so to jump into Kayla’s shoes and to go through something I’ve never gone through in my life was really inspiring and beautiful I really was excited to share that,” Ashley said.

Most-used is the crying/laughing face 😂, because I’m always laughing.

I probably have to say Lili [Reinhart], right? I never noticed it, except fans always tweet about it. Her and Brittany Murphy.
7. Go-to comfort food and why?
My go-to comfort food would probably be Thai food. I don’t really eat a lot of carbs, so when I do, I want pad thai. It’s just so comforting.

Coffee, because I love it too much.

14. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
To not take anything personally. It could be not getting the job, to someone saying the wrong thing to you — it’s just so much better to kind of separate yourself from it, and you won’t get hurt by it.
15. What’s the last book you read?
I’ve actually read it twice. It’s called Your Power to Heal. I got it when I was in Big Sur after my dog had passed. I didn’t know, but it’s actually a book about taking back your power over any type of disease or anxiety, and that we are not victims to disease, we actually could heal ourselves. And so I really liked that idea. It teaches you how to heal yourself when you’re going through something. I think it’s really amazing. It really has helped with just little symptoms of back aches and neck [pain], like all of that stuff. You just talk to your body and your body kind of responds too it’s pretty cool.

Ashley Tisdale Says She’s Not Ready to Be a Mom Yet: ‘I Have Options’

Ashley Tisdale Says She’s Not Ready to Be a Mom Yet: ‘I Have Options’

Ashley Tisdale says she’s not ready to start a family — and she encourages other women to take charge of their reproductive health and carve their own individual journey to parenthood.

“Whether you’re traveling or you have work or education or you’re married and not ready to have a kid yet, there are options out there,” the actress, who married musician Christopher French in 2014, tells PEOPLE. “For me, it’s like, it’s okay to not want to start a family right away. People are always asking me about that, but it’s just not the right time. And I have options out there.”

The High School Musical star has partnered with Allergan, the maker of birth control pill Lo Loestrin Fe, to join the “Women Who Know” campaign, encouraging women to seek accurate information about their reproductive health, including researching birth control options.

“We are trying to inspire women to take an active role in decisions about their reproductive health and contraceptive options,” says Tisdale, 34. “For me, it’s just about starting the discussion, having those conversations with your doctor and health care provider and knowing that there are options out there.”

Tisdale appears in educational video content alongside OB/GYN Dr. Lakeisha Richardson, in which she encourages other women to ask questions and engage experts.

“I have always been someone who likes to research a lot on anything that I do with my body,” Tisdale explains. “It’s about asking the right questions, and sometimes you might not even know what those questions are and that makes it uncomfortable. What’s great about this campaign is that there are videos and tools and doctor discussions.”

“Everyone is different,” she continues. “You might be like, ‘Oh, that works for that person,’ but we’re all so different. So really what I’m trying to do is just support women and encourage them to have the conversation, to feel more comfortable and be able to ask those questions and find out what the best option for you is.”

And in a case of life truly imitating art, Tisdale will next play a pharmaceutical rep in the upcoming CBS sitcom, Carol’s Second Act, alongside Patricia Heaton.

“I play [Heaton’]s daughter,” she reveals. “A pharmaceutical rep! It’s really all tying in. It’s pretty fun, I’m excited for it.”

Ashley Tisdale Joins The Allergan ‘Women Who Know’ Campaign

Ashley Tisdale Joins The Allergan ‘Women Who Know’ Campaign

Actress encourages women to take active roles in their reproductive health, including researching birth control options.

Allergan plc (AGN) announced today a partnership with actress, musician and producer Ashley Tisdale, bringing awareness to the digital-first ‘Women Who Know’ campaign that inspires women who are writing their own futures to take charge of their decisions when it comes to reproductive health and contraceptive options.

Allergan, the maker of the #1-prescribed branded birth control pill by OB/GYNs,1 Lo Loestrin®Fe (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol tablets, ethinyl estradiol tablets and ferrous fumarate tablets), has chosen Tisdale to represent the ‘Woman Who Knows,’ a confident, savvy and empowered woman looking to be proactive about her individual journey with pregnancy prevention. As ambassador for the ‘Women Who Know’ campaign, Tisdale calls on women who may be seeking to prevent pregnancy for a variety of reasons, whether it be work, education, travel before starting a family or a mom who isn’t quite ready to further expand her family. This campaign acts as a resource for these women as they seek information about their options, including Lo Loestrin Fe.

“Women have a lot of options available to them when it comes to pregnancy prevention, and that comes with a lot of confusion, which is why it’s important to be informed,” said Ashley Tisdale. “I’m thrilled to be working with Allergan on behalf of Lo Loestrin® Fe to call attention to the ‘Women Who Know’ campaign, and I hope to use my platform to inspire women across the nation to open up a conversation with their healthcare providers — and join me in becoming a ‘Woman Who Knows.'”

Ashley appears in educational video content alongside OB/GYN Dr. Lakeisha Richardson, in which she encourages other women to ask questions and engage experts on subjects related to contraception that they may not know everything about. This video and more content with Tisdale are now live on LoLoestrin.com and across Lo Loestrin Fe social media channels.

“We launched this campaign to encourage and empower women across the country to seek out the right resources and ask questions about their options when it comes to contraception, whether they’re looking to start a conversation with their healthcare provider for the first time, expand their contraceptive journey into prescription products or just learn a little bit more about a method they are currently using, like Lo Loestrin® Fe,” said Erin Capra, Associate VP of Marketing for Allergan Women’s Health. “We joined forces with Ashley Tisdale, a smart, talented and successful woman, to create content that supports and inspires women as they seek out credible resources when it comes to preventing pregnancy.”

Dr. Lakeisha Richardson, a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and paid consultant of Allergan, also plays a role in the content to answer and address questions from Ashley and show that it’s possible to have open, honest conversations about contraception. As a specialist in gynecology, she provides insights and answers some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to oral contraception, helping Ashley become a ‘Woman Who Knows’ and encouraging other women to educate themselves about their options.

“Having practiced as an OB/GYN in my community for almost 10 years, I work with women every day who have questions when it comes to pregnancy prevention, so I hope that through this campaign I can help provide women with the resources to make an informed decision about their birth control,” said Dr. Lakeisha Richardson, F.A.C.O.G.“I am honored to have been asked to participate, and I hope that through the content we are launching today I can help prepare young women everywhere for a candid discussion with their healthcare provider about their options, including Lo Loestrin® Fe.”

Ashley Tisdale Joins New CBS Comedy Series ‘Carol’s Second Act’ In Recasting

Ashley Tisdale Joins New CBS Comedy Series ‘Carol’s Second Act’ In Recasting

EXCLUSIVE: Ashley Tisdale has joined new CBS comedy series Carol’s Second Act,starring Patricia Heaton, as a series regular. The show, set to air on Thursdays in the fall, hails from Trophy Wife creators Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, Heaton and David Hunt’s FourBoys Entertainment and CBS TV Studios.

Tisdale replaces Bonnie Dennison who co-starred in the pilot. She also will continue as a series regular on another upcoming Kapital Entertainment comedy series, Merry Happy Whatever on Netflix.

Written by Halpern and Haskins, Carol’s Second Act centers around Carol Chambers (Heaton), who after raising her two children and retiring from teaching, embarks on a unique second act: she’s going to become a doctor.

Tisdale will play Jenny, Carol’s (Heaton) big-hearted daughter. She is a pharmaceutical rep and covers Carol’s hospital. Jenny loves and is supportive of her mom, and her bubbly and outgoing personality and carefree spirit is a buoyant counterpoint to Carol’s neurotic medical colleagues.

The character is introduced at the very end of the pilot, so reshooting will be minimal. The series’ regular cast also includes Kyle MacLachlan, Ito Aghayere, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and Sabrina Jalees.

Halpern and Haskins executive produce with Heaton, Hunt and Rebecca Stay for FourBoys, Adam Griffin, and Kaplan and Dana Honor for Kapital Entertainment. CBS TV Studios is the studio.

Tisdale also co-starred in the 2018 Kapital Entertainment comedy pilot for CBS Pandas In New York. She is repped by Gersh, Red Light and attorney Chad Christopher.

Ashley Tisdale’s New Album ‘Symptoms’ Is a Love Letter to Herself

Ashley Tisdale’s New Album ‘Symptoms’ Is a Love Letter to Herself

Even though it’s been 10 years since Ashley Tisdale last released an album, she’s been busy doing pretty much everything else. After spending three years starring in three High School Musical movies (plus one underrated spinoff!) as Sharpay Evans, a queen bee with a voracious appetite for fame, Tisdale went on to appear in a bunch of TV and film roles, including Hellcats and Scary Movie 5. On top of that, she acquired and rebranded Illuminate Cosmetics as the go-to destination for clean, modern makeup must-haves. So it’s understandable that she might take a step away from music for awhile.

Fortunately, the 33-year-old is once again channeling her creative energy back into recording with Symptoms (out May 3), her most thoughtful, mature release yet. The emotionally-charged, nine-track record follows the ups and downs of Tisdale’s personal battle with anxiety and depression, which she says she hopes will cut through the dark, often-stigmatized nature of mental illness to help others feel less isolated. From the haunting orchestral melodies of “Insomnia,” to the triumphant finale, “Feeling So Good,” Symptoms is a candid and vulnerable account of what it feels like to go through it—and a passionate reminder that you’re never alone.

Tisdale spoke to MarieClaire.com about her new album, the crucial role of music in her own healing process, and how she stays on top of her busy schedule.

On where she found inspiration for Symptoms:

I was in and out of the studio just trying to get inspired and see what my sound would be, but this record wasn’t something that I sat down to do. It was so organic and happened naturally. The first day of sitting in the writing session, I wasn’t even thinking about it like it would be a record. My co-writer, Rachel West, and I are really close, and our connection to each other happened right away—we would have songs written and recorded in sometimes half a day. The first session was with Rachel, and when we wrote “Symptoms,” I realized how great we were together. Because I was so inspired by the first song that we wrote, I knew exactly what the album was going to be; every single song was going to be a symptom of what I was experiencing.

On how she uses music to heal:

The studio became a safe space for me to really have fun and be creative and laugh…I needed to communicate what I was going through, and it really helped me get through that time. In the past, I was really trying to figure out who I was as an artist, but now I just feel like music is the best way to express everything that I’m going through. I think I’ve had anxiety for my entire life, but I definitely became aware of it in the last two years. It was all coming to a head, to be honest, and it just all happened and started getting worse. I’d also lost someone to depression about two years ago, and I just felt like it was time to share my story and who I am as a person with my fans. I really want to make people feel like they’re not alone.

On what influences her sound:

I would say that, musically, this is very different from stuff I’ve done in the past. When I started writing and recording this album, I really wanted the production to be more stripped down. Because it’s about anxiety and depression, I didn’t want it to be overproduced. I was really inspired by David Bowie and the Electric Light Orchestra—I listen to a lot of ’70s music! I was also inspired by Julia Michaels, because I love how her lyrics are very conversational, and that inspired me to write like that as well.

On what she does for self-care:

For me, reading really helped calm my anxiety…I think that the more that you can learn about it, you realize that other people are going through the same things as you and that there’s a community of people you can turn to. It’s also important to communicate it. Every single one of us is struggling with something, and no one’s perfect. Another thing that helps is starting my day with meditation. It really centers me and focuses me. I feel like it’s good to have some anxious feelings—it could mean that you’re excited about something—but meditation is such a huge help, especially for high stress.

On how she manages to do everything (in a healthy way):

I used to be a yes-person, and I would try to do everything. I realized that I can’t get to 500 things in a day, and that it’s okay to slow down and take time for yourself. I have so much going on and I kind of have to compartmentalize everything…I’m still learning, and I’m still going to mess up, and there are going to be times that I fail. But it is a journey.
