Demi Moore starts her morning with her adorable teacup chihuahua, Pilaf, snuggled around her neck. The actress and her close circle of female friends then shared a list detailing three things they were grateful for and three things they were afraid of. They offer affirmations every day — and then Moore does his best to stick with it.
“For me, happiness is a choice to live consciously and consciously, to be mindful and to make memorable and meaningful choices,” said the beloved and critically acclaimed hit songwriter “Ghost,” The “Disclosure” and “Margin Call” stars say. “It’s not the way I live; it’s the way I live.”
That’s why Moore said investing in Wonderbelly was “a no-brainer.” An FDA-regulated over-the-counter antacid, the brand’s chewable tablets come in delicious flavors like Strawberry Shake, Lemon Sorbet, and Watermelon Mint to relieve heartburn, indigestion, and stomach acid. “I love the brand’s voice and mission—it’s making such a meaningful impact not only in its medicines, but in the way people talk about their bodies and their digestive health,” she says. “It really hits all the boxes.”
Moore had a hunch that Wonderbelly should be part of her routine from the start. “The first time I tried it, I was blown away by how it tasted and how it worked,” she says. She’s also a fan of vegan, non-GMO ingredients: Instead of talc, dyes, and artificial sweeteners, each tablet contains calcium carbonate along with vegetable-based cane sugar, cornstarch, vegetable cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, and Extracted natural flavors fruit and vegetable extracts.
But Wonderbelly is just one of her self-care essentials. Moore, a firm believer in “prioritizing my mind, body and spirit from the inside out,” rounded up seven of her daily favorites for CNN Underscored.
Moore praises the antioxidant- and vitamin-C-rich beauty compact as “great at night and throughout the day.” Available in matte and glossy shades, this editor-favorite lip balm helps deliver long-lasting lip hydration in six different scents, including berry and vanilla. “I always have it on hand and really find it nourishes my lips and keeps them soft, smooth and hydrated,” she says.

“I love this basic tee,” Moore says of her beloved vintage white shirt. “It’s classic, comfortable, and a wardrobe staple that I know I can wear whenever I want to look and feel good.” This 100% cotton closet essential was originally created in 2004 (based on an old store’s classic tee), known for its variegated texture and softness. (Because it’s so lightweight, J.Crew experts recommend washing it like underwear.)

Not surprisingly, when it comes to exercising, Moore has his heart set. “As someone who likes to stay active, it’s really important to show my muscles some love before and after exercise,” she says of the durable tool, which increases flexibility, reduces soreness, and eliminates muscle knots.

For furry cases only! Moore lathers with an antioxidant-rich nourishing shampoo for a soft yet strong feel and silky shine, followed by a sulfate-free moisturizing rinse. “It’s perfect for my long hair, keeping it full, healthy and balanced,” she says. “It’s never greasy or drying.”
