Elsa Pataky, 44, reveals the secrets to her age-defying visage… but angers fans by missing one crucial element in her eight-step beauty routine

Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, 44, often walks the streets of Byron Bay barefoot and makeup free.

Partnering with Vogue Australia this week, Elsa recorded a video documenting her eight-step morning beauty routine.

Routine: Elsa Pataky, 44, revealed the secrets to her age-defying visage in a video for Vogue this week – but angered fans by missing one crucial element in her eight-step beauty routine 

The mother of three said she starts her day with a cold shower and a warm glass of lemon water to invigorate the senses and energise her body.

Arguably looking just as good as she did in her twenties, the Dior ambassador then plugged a series of Dior products responsible for her ‘morning glow’.

Elsa praised Dior’s $145 Capture Totale Super Potent Serum for ‘plumping the skin’ and ‘helping with fine lines’, as well as the ‘nourishing’ $175 Capture Totale Super Potent Rich Cream.

Her final four steps comprise defining her brows, applying cheek colour, a quick application of mascara, and putting on lip balm.

However, fans were angered by one obvious omission from her eight-step routine.

'No sunscreen? How disappointing!' However, fans on YouTube were angered by one obvious omission from her eight-step routine: she didn't mention putting on sunscreen

‘No sunscreen? How disappointing!’ However, fans on YouTube were angered by one obvious omission from her eight-step routine: she didn’t mention putting on sunscreen

Commenting under the YouTube video and on Elsa’s Instagram account, fans questioned why she was not promoting the use of SPF products in the morning.

‘No sunscreen? How disappointing! Especially living in Australia. All the serums and creams are useless without sun protection,’ one person said.

Others wrote: ‘So disappointing to see another morning routine video that doesn’t include sunscreen’, ‘SPF! You need SPF!’, and ‘SPF! You live in Australia!’

Adopted Aussie: Elsa was born in Madrid, and after spending the first few years of married life with Chris in Los Angeles, the pair permanently relocated to Australia in 2015

Elsa was born in Madrid, and after spending the first few years of married life with Chris in Los Angeles, the pair permanently relocated to Australia in 2015.

She has been living the good life in bohemian Byron Bay for several years now.

The Fast and the Furious star told Harper’s Bazaar last year she swears by applying SPF 50 to her face every day to protect herself from the sun.

Elsa and Chris, who share daughter India Rose, eight, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, six, live in a $30million mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay. 

While good genetics have clearly given Elsa a helping hand in the looks department, she’s also known to treat her body like a temple.

She has made no secret of the fact she eats well – drinking regular green smoothies – and works out regularly, enjoying Pilates, HIIT circuits and boxing.

Speaking to Jones magazine last year, Elsa said she’d selflessly put her acting career on hold after having children so her husband could focus on making movies.

‘I decided to focus on them and leave my career on the side, to just do little things here and there and try to be happy with that, even though it was my passion and I loved what I did,’ the mother of three said.

However, as Chris’ career flourished, Elsa couldn’t help but feel envious.

‘It was hard in some moments, because you see the person you love doing what you’re so passionate about, you see them doing movies, and you wish you could too,’ she added.

‘But because of my family I didn’t want to shoot anywhere else and it was Chris’ moment, I just let him know that he could do what he had to do and we’ll follow.’ 

Meanwhile, Elsa is currently playing the lead role in Netflix’s Interceptor, which focuses on a female protagonist who must save the world from 16 nuclear missiles.

Her husband Chris is producing the movie alongside Kathy Morgan, Christopher Mapp, Robert Slaviero, and Peter D. Graves.

At one point, one of the boys said: ‘Dad, I don’t wanna go to the lake!’

They live in the suburb of Broken Head, a 20-minute drive from central Byron, in a mega-mansion estimated to be worth $30million.

They spent years renovating their home, which sits on 4.2 hectares of land, with the help of Sydney-based MCK Architects – but the development faced some resistance from locals, who compared it to a multi-storey car park or shopping centre.

The property features a 50-metre infinity pool, a large Indigenous mural, two bars and a gym complex including steam, sauna and massage rooms.

The home’s 50-metre pool alone is estimated to have cost at least $400,000, and the enormous indoor mural could be worth as much as $100,000.

The actress recently told The Sydney Morning Herald that there are downsides to moving from the laid-back seaside enclave of Byron Bay to the big smoke in Sydney.

She said: ‘It’s a whole new experience… I can’t dress down as much as I do in Byron Bay – we hope to get back there on the weekends.’ 

Elsa added at the couple’s three children will be schooled in the city for the time being.

The actress went on to say that living in Australia has been the right decision for the previously LA-based family.   

‘Byron has been beautiful. We made the right decision in 2014 to leave LA and come to Australia – it’s been great for the kids to be in nature, enjoy animals and go horse riding,’ she said. 

Luckily the move to Sydney is only temporary, while the pair work on their separate projects in Sydney.
