You’ve wanted Jordana Brewster’s amazing hair, eyebrows and skin since her Seventeen cover in 1999 — and now she’s helping you get at least one of those things, thanks to her new partnership with Pond’s.

The Furious 7 star, 34, is the skincare brand’s new ambassador, and reached out to an expert to help her with the shoot: Her mom, who’s used the Cold Cream Cleanser for ages.

“It’s been a shoot with my mom, and that’s been really great because I’m so excited to work with a brand like Pond’s,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s been around for years, 150 years or so, and it’s been tried and true with generations of women, and personally I’m excited to up my beauty routine from a basic moisturizer to one that has all of these delicious ingredients, like vitamin E, alpha-hydroxy acids and collagen.”

Brewster counts Pond’s Rejuveness Cream as one of her new must-haves, as well as Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Sticks and Tarte’s lip products. “[Tarte] is kind of fool-proof — it’s a giant pencil,” she said. “You can put it on in your car (in L.A., we’re kind of always on the go), so you can kind of throw it in your bag and use whenever.”

But since becoming a mother to her 17-month-old son, Julian, Brewster’s makeup routine has become much more streamlined. “I need stuff that works in a pinch and that doesn’t require a lot of fuss,” she told PEOPLE. “Like, I can’t sit in the bath for 30 minutes with a mask on my face. And at the end of the day, as a mom, I’m way too tired to take my eye makeup off, and then scrub my face, so I just use the [Pond’s] Towelettes and then I’m done. It’s so, so nice.”

That doesn’t mean the star doesn’t love to treat herself to a little R&R every now and then, though. “I think my most indulgent [beauty treatment] is probably a blow dry barr,” she said. “Because sometimes I’ll go two or three times a week.”

Another occasional beauty indulgence? A glowing tan. “I’m blessed to have an olive complexion because my mom is Brazilian, so I tan really, really easily,” she tells PEOPLE. “But I can’t be in the sun much anymore. I’m happy with my skin, but I do like — every once and a while — getting an organic spray tan.”

And her beautifully bronzed inspiration: “[I love] the J.Lo glow. Her style is always impeccable,” she said. “I don’t know what she does. I’ve also seen her at restaurants, and she’s got this glow eating out at a restaurant. And I’m like, ‘How do you do that?’ It’s insane!”

Brewster’s style isn’t too different from her beauty routine these days either. “My style is pretty California laid-back, a little bit bohemian and a little bit tomboy-ish,” she said. “I love putting a pair of boyfriend jeans on, or right now, I’m really into overalls or jumpsuits. I love looks that don’t require a lot of maintenance. Again, with carrying Julian around and hopping all over the place, I like things that I can put on really fast.”
