Jane Levy Drops Her Skin-Care Routine
JLN Staff - May 31, 2021 Interviews , Photos

The delightfully relatable star of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, identifies as a “product whore.” Same, Jane.

Jane Levy’s life features a conflict that just about all of us can relate to.

As a little girl, Levy’s mom taught her that her value was in her mind and voice and her goodness. “Never was I taught that as a woman your value is how beautiful you are,” she says. “It was a shock as I got older, like, “This is a woman’s currency in our society.”

As we grow up, it becomes hard to ignore how much our appearances matter—at least, to other people. For Levy, of course, that feeling is magnified. “I’m an actress,” she says, simply. “My job is to have my face filmed.”

Okay, most of us don’t star on blockbuster TV shows, like Levy in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Our jobs are more about resisting texting our bosses “R U mad at me?” and less about walking red carpets. But most women—most people, really—know this exact struggle.

How can we live with intense beauty standards without allowing those standards to define our worth? How are we supposed to determine which parts of the beauty industry actually make us feel beautiful, and which make us feel broken? And as long as we’re spiraling, what about the fact that a lot of beauty and wellness stuff is actually fun? And relaxing? What about the fact that, as Levy says, laughing, “I have vanity!”

Levy tries to focus on the parts of the beauty world that actually feel good. “I love being touched,” she says. “Even getting my makeup done feels like a massage to me. I love getting facials. I love the feeling of being loved on, paid attention to—clearly, I’m an actress!” she laughs. “I also get joy out of finding new products, maybe finding a product that is not as expensive as something else.”

Levy says that on a good day, she feels great about her skin. But on bad days, she struggles. “My whole life I have dealt with a version of psoriasis on my body—it makes me self conscious and it itches and it upsets me,” she says. “I’ve gone to every naturopath and acupuncturist and it’s really hard for me to get rid of it. I totally relate to women out there who struggle with their skin in that way.” She hasn’t found any magic treatment for it, sadly. “The thing that helps the most is the healthiest lifestyle—but I have to basically live like a nun,” she says. “It becomes a lot more faint if I don’t drink or eat sugar, but that’s no fun!”

What she does find fun is products. “I’m a product whore,” she says, happily. “I also get joy out of finding new products, especially finding a product that is not as expensive as something else.” Is there anything more relatable than struggling with beauty standards, having psoriasis, and loving affordable products? There simply is not. Read on for Jane Levy’s contribution to Glamour’s series, Drop the Routine.

Actress Jane Levy on Alternate Realities and ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’
As she shoots season 2, the star of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist talks alternate realities, female role models and the magic of human connection.

Jane Levy is currently living in an alternate universe: “This very strange swirl of radically different and extremely familiar,” she says. The California-bred actress is shooting Season 2 of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist for NBC in British Columbia, where the entire province, according to a recent Instagram post of the actress on a ferry, has had just about 13,000 COVID-19 cases total. And—spoiler alert!—the TV show takes place in a pandemic-free world.

“It feels somehow extremely normal and familiar, and at the same time very foreign and surreal,” says Levy, who turns 31 at the end of December and plays Zoey. “When we are shooting, I am no longer existing in a pandemic, so I’m sort of shot back into this different reality. Off set I’m back.” COVID has warped all of our worlds, even for an actress accustomed to taking on disparate roles. “At home watching TV, when I see characters hug each other, I’m like, ‘Oh no! You’re not supposed to do that!’” Levy says, laughing. “I’m not doing that in real life, but in fake life… yeah, it’s bizarre.” Continue reading  »
