A breakdown of his pre–red carpet beauty regimen by RéVive, by the numbers.

Even his handsome face couldn’t make viewers love Alexander Skarsgard’s character in the hit show Big Little Lies, for which he won an Emmy on Sunday night. Fortunately he was much more likable at the awards ceremony, where the happy actor looked dapper in a skinny black tux. Not that he probably needed it, but Skarsgard’s pre-Emmys skincare included $710-plus dollars worth of skincare products, expertly applied by the celebrity groomer Kim Verbeck, who also styled his hair in the debonaire side-parted style.

A breakdown: First, she refreshed his visage by washing with RéVive Exfoliating Cleanser Soft Polishing Cream ($75) for clarity. Next, Verbeck used a generous layer of RéVive Balancing Toner Soothing Skin Refresher ($65), which she says prepped it to be camera-ready. (She also likes to give her clients masks to use the week before, like RéVive’s Masque de Glaise, ($125).

For hydration, Verbeck used a dollop of RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Serum Nightly Repair Booster ($235), which she allowed to melt into his skin while she trimmed his mustache. Next came RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream Ultra Retexturizing Hydrator ($150), and RéVive’s brand-new Moisturizing Renewal Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen since it was a sunny day on the carpet.

Finally, after applying some light powder and spot-touching concealer on his Scandinavian complexion, the groomer finished off his classic Hollywood look with RéVive Intensité Moisturizing Lip Balm Luxe Conditioner ($60). Voila: One handsome leading man.
