Lily Collins is obsessed with dance cardio

Actress Lily Collins credits her mother Jill Tavelman for teaching her healthy skincare habits.

Lily Collins can’t help but get her rave on during dance cardio sessions.

The 27-year-old made her film debut in 2009’s The Blind Side, alongside Sandra Bullock, and will next be seen onscreen in Rules Don’t Apply, where she plays an aspiring actress.

When she’s not on a movie set, Los Angeles-based Lily loves to exercise and counts high intensity group classes, such as dance cardio, as her preferred mode of working out.

Dance cardio typically involves 45 minutes of non-stop dance, accompanied by some current pop tunes to encourage participants to let their hair down and jam out.

“There’s a big athletic scene in L.A. and it’s somewhere you can experience an eclectic array of things,” she told Hello! Fashion Monthly. “Dance cardio is my latest obsession, or sometimes I’ll just go to the gym, sit on a bike and pedal for hours while reading.

Lily, who is the daughter of musician Phil Collins, has been a brand ambassador for French brand Lancome since 2014, following in the footsteps of stars such as Daria Werbowy, Emma Watson and Julia Roberts. But the star credits her mother Jill Tavelman as the person who instilled good skincare habits in her.

“My mom always removed her make-up at night and taught me early on about the importance of taking care of your skin, especially when you’re travelling or extremely busy, because it’s so easily affected by your surroundings and health. I love a good face mask like (Lancome’s) Energie De Vie Sleeping Mask because it’s a fast and easy way to add moisture and leave your skin looking so glowy,” she shared.

And when it comes to keeping her famous signature eyebrows in shape, Lily opts for a swipe of clear brow gel. And she never leaves the house without at least a little mascara on.

“I’ll do one coat during the day then add two or three just on the tips for extra oomph,” she smiled.
