Rooney Mara insists a vegan and gluten-free diet is responsible for her glowing skin.

The actress is devoted to healthy living and makes sure to carefully select the right beauty products.

“My skin is good, but it’s all about genetics and lifestyle – I’m vegan, gluten-free, don’t really drink (alcohol), and sleep a lot,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I’ve been vegan for seven years, but I’ve been a vegetarian since I was little. It’s better for your health and the environment.”

Mara also maintains her enviable appearance by staying fit, relying on hiking and hot yoga, which she notes is “like therapy”, as well as Pilates and ballet classes.

In terms of her favourite beauty items, the 33 year old swears by Tammy Fender Cleansing Milk and Carasoin Cold Fusion Intense Moisture cream.

“You keep it in the refrigerator, and when you apply it, it just melts into your face,” she says.

Mara also uses Actinica sunscreen from Switzerland to protect herself from sun damage and Herbivore Phoenix Regenerating Facial Oil, Tammy Fender Cleansing Milk and Carasoin Cold Fusion Moisturizer.

Though the brunette isn’t a fan of wearing too much makeup, she puts extra effort into her eyebrows.

“I really don’t wear much makeup. My eyebrows are the only thing I care about,” she says. “I get them tinted. Sometimes I even do it myself.”

When she does use cosmetics, the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star indulges in bold looks.

“I’m really drawn to dark lipstick – anything with a nearly-’90s goth vibe,” she tells the publication. “I love dark berry tones.”
