Elsa Pataky, 44, divides fans with her eight-step beauty routine

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.

And the bohemian wife of Chris Hemsworth has now revealed the secrets to her youthful visage and naturally glowing complexion.

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

In the past she has applauded La Roche Posay sunscreen and SPF products, as well as Peter Thomas Roth’s SPF 30 moisturising lotion.

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.
