Elizabeth Olsen loves using yoga as a way to "re-centre" herself.

Elizabeth Olsen didn't feel it was "morally" right to buy more than two expensive skin serums.

The Captain America: Civil War actress is known for her clear skin, which she often dolls up for red carpet events. To achieve such a flawless appearance Elizabeth invests in high-end products, but has boundaries when it comes to how much she gets.

"I'm digging this 111Skin serum," she told Allure. "I was in Barneys, and my hands felt really dry so I started pretending I needed a sample. (The salesperson) gave me these packets. Apparently, a plastic surgeon and some space scientists got together to make a really expensive product. I bought two - morally I feel like I shouldn't buy more."

She also lists SK-II and Dr. Colbert as brands whose face masks, "the ones that make you look like a serial killer", she loves.

When it comes to picking her cosmetics, Elizabeth has a few favourites up her sleeve. "I like Chanel mascara and Dior mascara, and NARS (lip crayons)," she smiled. "The one that I have looks like Spice, that MAC colour from the '90s - it's amazing. I use Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (foundation) when I'm filming. It's light, and I tend to play characters that shouldn't look like they're wearing make-up."

On top of her gorgeous looks the 27-year-old star boasts a slim physique, which she keeps in shape by working out three to four days a week. Her workouts vary, from Muay Thai to ballet and usual gym routines.

"Yoga class is my favourite," she added. "I always have to go on Sunday if I'm in L.A. It's like yoga church. If you're having a s**tty week, it's a great way to re-centre yourself."
