Lorenza Izzo has a microwave in her bathroom to help beat period pains.

Lorenza Izzo gets rid of her "cow lashes" by curling them.

The Chilean actress, who is married to writer/director Eli Roth, is making a name for herself in Hollywood with movies like Knock, Knock, opposite Keanu Reeves and David Schwimmer’s latest TV show Feed the Beast.

As she makes more appearances on the red carpet Lorenza has to make sure she looks flawless at all times. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to make sure her eyelashes are behaving.

“I’m obsessed with curling my eyelashes because I have what I call ‘cow lashes’ because they go straight down,” she laughed to “I use my trusted, trusted Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. I am obsessed with separating my lashes. I use a Sephora separator. It’s also calming; it’s like popping a pimple.”

Her Chilean roots also influence the 26-year-old’s beauty regime. As a youngster Lorenza’s grandmother taught her how beneficial rose water can be as a toner, and the star also uses it to boost her mood and make her feel more awake.

She also has a special way of dealing with stomach cramps when it’s that time of the month.

“Here’s another fun Chilean secret: I have a microwave in (my bathroom)—don’t judge!” she smiled. “So I got this little (product) in Chile, and whenever I get my period, I just pop this thing out. It’s got a bunch of seeds in it, and I put it in the microwave for two minutes. I get awful cramps, and I put it on my (stomach), and my cramps calm down. What are they called in America? Water bottles? Water bags? Heating pads? In Chile they’re called guatero. The microwave was here when we moved in. I only use it for this—don’t think I heat up soup up here! That’s not happening.”
