Rooney Mara Skin Care Secrets

Find Out the Secret to Rooney Mara's Glowing Skin

When we think of Rooney Mara, it isn't her jet-black hair or bold brows we want. It's her radiant complexion that has even beauty editors swooning. Recently, InStyle talked with the star, and she revealed her skin care secrets.

You may know her best as the girl with the dragon tattoo, but Rooney Mara is also the lady with gluten-free nibbles and buckets of SPF. For InStyle’s October issue, Rooney gave us the inside scoop on her flawless complexion, her envy-inducing eyebrows, and the seven beauty products she can’t live without. For more, turn to page 279 of the recent issue, now available on newsstands or downloadable for your tablet.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of…
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for "aspirational cut."
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for "Rooney Mara brows." Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance — that’s why they’re so prominent!
