Kerry Washington: Beauty is feeling good

Kerry Washington urges people to love themselves and their bodies "unconditionally".

The 38-year-old actress is admired for both her acting and stunning looks, which she highlights with just the right amount of make-up while in the spotlight.

Kerry aims to feel good about herself at all times and has her family to help her achieve this when at home.

"I try to feel beautiful all the time, but if you're speaking of a moment then maybe yesterday, when I was rolling around in bed with my daughter [Isabelle] and husband [Nnamdi Asomugha]," she smiled to British magazine Stylist in response to being asked when the last time she felt beautiful was.

"Beauty is [composed of] things that you take in visually or aurally, or that you experience, that make you feel good."

But Kerry does put some effort into maintaining her appearance, which she puts down to feeling relaxed as well as using various products. She has regular massages and cites being on a masseuse's table as her beauty sanctuary.

The star added that Hollywood has taught her to resist defining beauty and that she feels it's important to give people compliments to pass on positive feelings.

Kerry hasn't always been content in her own skin though and has suffered from hang-ups in the past.

"There have been times where I've felt like my body had to be a certain way in order to love it, instead of loving your body as it is, which is the way to be most comfortable in it," she added.

"If I covet anything it would be people who love themselves and their bodies unconditionally."
