Jordana Brewster Skincare Secrets and Routine

I don’t follow a lot of trends because they change so often.

I stick to the tried and true–drinking lots of water and good nutrition.

I can’t live without Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat for under my eyes––its an instant pick-me-up.

I also wear Kate Somerville’s SPF 55 Serum Tinted Sunscreen. I love that it protects my skin while making me look tan.

Since I’m constantly losing my lip moisturizers, I have about six or seven Burt’s Bees Lip Balms scattered in my car, makeup bag and purse.

I also love coconut oil as a moisturizer.

My mother consistently advised me to always, always wash my face and take my eye makeup off before going to bed. I’ve been pretty good about it (with the exception of a few nights in my 20s). She also advised me not to touch my face because of germs. That one is too hard to follow. I touch my face constantly!

I use Kate Somerville SPF 55 on my face. It’s a serum, so it doesn’t feel very dry. It also doesn’t give you a matte white look, which I really don’t like. I tanned my body recently, but then my face was really pale because I always use sunscreen, so I also use self-tanner on my face.

Jordana Brewster Makeup Secrets and Routine

When I do my own makeup, I keep things pretty simple.

I also really like liquid eyeliner by Armani and lots of mascara. My favorite right now is Armani Eyes to Kill mascara.

I used to love gloss, but I have found that lipstick is a bit more grown-up and gives me a more polished look. I’ve been really into Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lately, in Sari D’Eau. It’s a pretty, happy, coral color, which I love for summer.

Always wear mascara. It opens up your eyes.

I use baby oil to take eye makeup off.

I always have to have my makeup bag with me in my purse. I keep hand sanitizer and blush in it.

I’m a big fan of the Armani blush with the two different shades.

I also love Dr. Hauschka lip balm.

Jordana Brewster Hair Secrets and Routine

I use Moroccan Oil.

I’m a fan of this hair stuff called Macadamia Natural Oil. It’s kind of amazing and so yummy. I straighten my hair a lot, so anything to protect it is good.

Overstyling is the worst thing for hair. I only wash mine every couple of days. It’s better for it, and I get the texture I like when its dirty.

I also think that what you put in your body affects how your skin and hair look so I eat plenty of vegetables and drink tons of water.

Jordana Brewster Diet Secrets and Routine

I used to have crazy dietary restrictions: Eat [energy] bars for lunch, do the protein shake thing. But now I eat healthy six days a week.

Breakfast might be pancakes made with oatmeal, lunches are usually wraps, and dinner is, say, a turkey burger or fish with brown rice.

…One day a week, I eat whatever I want. On my days off I’m a frozen-yogurt fiend. I get a big frozen yogurt with brownies on top. I also splurge on white wine, bread, and thin-crust pizza. The great thing about that is you crave healthy food the next day. It’s a mini holiday, but it also gets me really excited to be healthy for the rest of the week.

I don’t eat red meat. I grew up in Brazil and would go churrascarias a lot. Since then, red meat grosses me out.

I do like chicken, egg whites, fish, and shrimp. But my diet is pretty balanced. I eat a lot of grains and fresh fruits/veggies.

I buy organic and try to eat as few processed foods as I can.

I like kale a lot. I bought a steamer that steams vegetables in 4 minutes that gives me veggies for the whole week.

…berries are so good because of their antioxidants. I love blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries. It’s amazing how they can protect your brain.

Greek yogurt is one of my magic foods, too.

I… bought a Vitamix and it’s really cool. I find that when you buy juice, it doesn’t have fiber, pulp, or protein. I’ll put in kale, celery, yogurt, and fruit. It’s a way of having a really healthy, delicious lunch.

Jordana Brewster Fitness Secrets and Routine

I used to get fit for a film, then let loose right after. I think a lot of people do that: You look your best for the big event and then slack off. But it’s good to have structure in your life—I like having a routine, because everything else…is so unpredictable.

I do cardio six days a week, with weight resistance in between. I also work with [celebrity trainer] Harley Pasternak three times a week.

I used to run, but can’t anymore because [it hurts my knees]. But what’s just as effective? Putting the treadmill at an incline of 12— that’s steep!—and climbing for 30 to 40 minutes.

I used to work out harder than I had to. I’d take a spinning class and stress if my heart rate wasn’t at 170. But Harley says my heart rate should be under 165; otherwise, I’m working too hard and not burning anything extra.

I’ve learned you don’t have to go to extremes to maintain a healthy weight. There was one day when I just didn’t feel like I could do weight training after my cardio, so I didn’t. You do have to know when to stop, or you can hurt yourself.

I never ask what set we’re on, and I don’t count. That makes the workout seem longer. I don’t want to focus on exercising, and the truth is, you don’t need to.

I download TV shows to my iPod. Any marathon that’s on, like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is right for me. I love working out, but I need my brain to be someplace else as my body does the work.

My mom still works out about five days a week. Back in the day we would go to step class together. She instilled in me the importance of an active lifestyle and healthy diet.

I work out with a trainer five days a week. I do cardio on all five days, weights and interval training about three times a week. I also practice vedic meditation twice a day, which helps keep me sane.
