Always keen to tap into the minds (and makeup bags) of bombshell blondes with flawless skin, we couldn’t wait to catch up with Katie Nehra. The writer, actress and designer juggles a bevy of creative projects, the latest of which is indie film Alex of Venice (she co-wrote the script and stars in the Chris Messina-directed flick). From the movie to her collection (on any given day you’ll likely find a Team Zoe staffer rocking one of her Simone leather jackets), we tend to be big fans of the things Ms. Nehra endorses—her beauty routine now included.

Rule #4: Believe In The Power Of A Mask
"Biologique Recherche products are my favorite! I try to do the VIP mask mixed with baking soda and Vivant mask every day. They are expensive, but they work—I think skincare is probably the most important thing to splurge on."

Rule #5: Don't Forget The Little Things
"Sleep is key! I also wear SPF every day and use coconut oil for everything (body, hair, lips, etc)."
