The 'Batman' actress talked candidly about her road to beauty and self-care in a recent interview with Byrdie, including some sage advice from her mother and musician father, who was honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the 2022 CFDA Awards in November 2022. "Both my parents are people who have always marched to the beat of their drum and embraced their individuality." She went on to say that they also taught her to take care of her body and skin, as well as to be true to herself. "Doing your own thing is part of what makes people so beautiful," she explained. "When I see someone being themselves unapologetically, that always shines through everything."

Kravitz also discussed her long-standing association as a brand ambassador for YSL Beauty, mentioning that the brand's Touche Éclat concealer is one of her go-to products. "I have input on what we're doing and making, so it's a great partnership," the 'Divergent' actress said of her seven-year-long partnership with the company, adding, "They haven't tried to manipulate or change who I am, what I stand for, and how I look."

She also discussed her strong friendship with her hairdresser, Nikki Nelms, whom she referred to as her hair partner. "I've had quite the journey with my hair, from learning how to take care of it, love it, and accept it," she says. "I'm constantly changing it, and Nikki has been on that journey with me. She understands my aesthetic, and when I have an idea, she helps me bring it to life."

Kravitz added that having a digital break helps her practice self-care in addition to being herself and using some beauty necessities. "I used to come home and be on my phone for hours—scrolling through Instagram, texting people, or answering emails," she adds, "I make an effort at the end of the day to put my phone down, put on some music, light some incense, or watch a movie."

Just before her 34th birthday on December 1, 2022, Kravitz discussed her plans to remove some of the body art she no longer found appealing, such as a fading star on her middle finger that she had when she was 18. The actress told GQ in her Covergirl interview, "Just things, I'm like, 'I don't need this on my body'."
