You know those skin-care and beauty products that you use until the very last drop? The ones that you’ve spent entire brunches/text threads/email chains, telling your friends about? They’re the best of the best…so amazing that you’d never risk putting them in a piece of checked luggage. At Well+Good, we call those our Beauty VIPs (you know, Very Important Products). In this series, we ask women in wellness and the public eye what beauty products they use every single day and why—with an entire Internet of options to choose from—these items stand out.

If you could catch a peek at Michelle Monaghan’s Google Cal, you’d probably see “empowering women” slotted somewhere between “starring in blockbusters” and “raising a pair of children.” To say that the actress “does it all” would be a vast understatement.

Along with acting as a mentor for Manifest Works and working closely with Alba Botanicals for their Do Good, Do Beautiful grant, Monaghan recently landed the lead in the upcoming Netflix series Messiah. Before stepping out into the public eye though, Monaghan relies on her beauty routine to get her screen and superwoman-ready: “I drink a minimum of three liters of water daily and I always wear sunblock, no matter what,” she says. “Also, exercise—any kind —makes me feel great from the inside out.”

Scroll down for Monaghan’s 8 look good, feel good essentials.
