Best known for her spitfire sense of humor and otherworldly good looks, Olivia Wilde’s stay-gorgeous routine is surprisingly girl-next-door.

“[I wash] and moisturize my face with drugstore brands like Cetaphil and CeraVe,” she tells PEOPLE.

And when that newly lopped do becomes a hassle, the TRON star looks to easy solutions. “I’m into cool stretchy headbands,” she says. “I throw it up and try to make it look interesting and put on a headband and then it looks like it was all intentional.”

While her beauty basics are decidedly simple, Wilde’s fitness routine runs the gamut from the serious to the silly. “I need kind of Ashtanga, like good, serious yoga,” she explains. “I never feel more beautiful than after I’ve really spent some time breathing.”

But when downward dog isn’t cutting it: “Hula hooping is one of those things that everybody sort of scoffs at,” she adds semi-seriously, “but I know people who have lost serious weight hula hooping.”
