Theo James' simple skincare regime

Theo James considers a good watch to be an essential part of a man's wardrobe.

Actor Theo James prefers to keep things simple when it comes to his skincare regime.

The handsome Divergent star's skin always looks amazing, without a pimple, wrinkle or hint of discoloration in sight.

But the 31-year-old insists his appearance isn't down to an endless list of products, in fact, the reality is quite the opposite.

"I don't really have much of a routine," he told Forbes. "I do use this line REN quite a lot because it doesn't f**k with your skin too much. You know, for example, sometimes you're on set and it's a very hot day and they might apply something which has silicones or something. I use all the REN stuff because it's simple."

His pared back routine clearly works, and as well as his successful acting career, Theo has also been snapped up as the face of Boss The Scent.

When it comes to being a brand ambassador, it's a role the star put a lot of consideration into.

"When you endorse something, you have to think carefully about it," he explained. "Obviously, you want to endorse something that is decent, and it needs to reflect a little bit of yourself. It's quite understated, broad and clean, which I was interested by. The second thing is, you're also playing a different character when you're doing the TV spots. You need to be yourself, but it's also part of the character."

However, Theo was easily swayed to sign on as a brand ambassador, as Hugo Boss was already one of his favourite clothing brands.

As for his style must-haves, a watch is top of the actor's list.

"A good watch to go with your outfit is extremely important-and a long, black, well-cut, winter or autumn coat," he said. "In terms of watches, there's a brand called Shinola, which is a Detroit make of watch. They're quite a solid brand and they're quite quality when it comes to how they wear."
