Halle Berry's beauty has been celebrated for as long as we can all remember — she's been name-checked in so many rap songs that you can find playlists featuring them all on Spotify. But even as an entire generation of musicians have so loudly expressed their infatuation with her over the years, Berry can tell you herself that being beautiful goes far beyond what the eye can see.
"Beauty is as beauty does," she told POPSUGAR. "Beauty alone doesn't really get you very far. It's very superficial, and it gets you to a certain point, but it takes more than beauty to be successful at anything."
That, of course, is the kind of wisdom we'd expect to hear from a legend like Berry, and luckily for us, it doesn't stop there. Read ahead as the actress opened up about the biggest beauty lessons she's learned, the skin-care products she'll never use again, and her views on body hair.
