Alexandra Daddario knows a thing or two about looking camera-ready during the summer — she did play a Baywatch Babe afterall. The actress who recently partnered with Kleenex, sat down with Us to talk her summer style essentials and shared some ace tips to ensure that we all look our best during the warmer months.
Daddario is notably super fit. So what does she do to stay slow-mo-run-on-the-beach ready? Yoga. The actress favors the zen workout because it combines mental and physical health. “It helps me approach the world in a positive way and it’s a community activity that gives a healthy approach to the body too,” she explains.
As for her number one beach bag essential, Daddario counts sunscreen as her tried and true. “Any kind of sunscreen will do, but I also like organic sunscreen with various kinds of zinc.” Other items that you might find in her summer tote-along: Flip-flops and Kleenex wet wipes (because they’re useful when you need a quick clean up on the go). Last but not least, Daddario says she always keeps a bathing suit with her no matter what, “you never know if you’ll be invited to hang out by the beach or pool at the last minute.”
And when it comes to tans — well, Daddario advises that it’s best to stay out of the sun. But, if you do want a glow, a spray tan or self-tan is much healthier than the sun’s rays.
The actress also shared her number one summer beauty essential: waterproof concealer because “it’s hot and you’re sweaty — that way it doesn’t move.” Aside from waterproof concealer (she prefers MAC, btw) the star also swears by this simple makeup routine: brightening shimmery shadow on the inner corner and brow bone, mascara and sunglasses. It’s no fail.
