When legendary oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau is your grandfather, you're in the water a lot: "I could swim before I could walk!" says Alexandra Cousteau, who spends much of the year circling the globe for her water-conservation nonprofit, Blue Legacy International. "I went on my first ocean expedition with my dad when I was five months old, and my grandfather taught me to scuba dive at seven." A filmmaker, she's often shooting off the Pacific Coast or exploring the Sea of Cortez; as a result, her wind-battered skin needs serious moisture, along with protective anti-aging measures (sunscreen is an always). "I am careful about my face, arms, hands—basically all the places that make you look old!" she says.
Her ocean-friendly moisturizer: Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil, $53, nordstrom.com
Her heavy-duty nourishing duo: "If I've been out too much in the sun, I love the Fresh Creme Ancienne eye cream [$110] and moisturizer [$140 for 1 oz., fresh.com]—afterward I don't feel dry at all."
Her best imported moisturizer: "The women in Tahiti use a flower-derived monoi oil for everything—stretch marks, hair, body. If I'm diving, I coat my skin with it. It really sinks in and protects. It's also organic, so it's not going to kill the reef."
Her morning antioxidants: "When my skin isn't quite as dry, I'll use a lightweight moisturizer like pomegranate-seed rose oil.Then I put on Skin Ceuticals C E Ferulic serum [$162, skinceuticals.com] under SPF; vitamin C fights free radicals and minimizes freckling."
