Hailee Steinfeld’s wellness philosophy
Hailee Steinfeld returns to the Vein of well-being.
The 26-year-old actress and singer-songwriter tells PEOPLE she’s reached a “new level” over the years [of] what it means to “take care of myself” by simply getting back to basics.
During their reset, the hawk eye Star says she drew on her partnership with hydration of the core for motivation.
“I feel like my wellness goals really align with that [them]’ the brand ambassador shares, adding that working with the premium water brand has reminded her that taking care of your well-being can be ‘as simple as staying balanced, staying hydrated and staying true to yourself’.
The spa isn’t new territory for the Oscar nominee, who, along with her brother, has enjoyed an active lifestyle through exercise. She owes it to her father, a professional fitness trainer, who encouraged both of them at an early age. Now they enjoy father-daughter training.
“I’m so lucky to have my dad as my personal trainer. Not only do we selfishly spend this kind of time together when I’m out and when I’m at home, but he knows what I can do and he drives me and he inspires me,” says Steinfeld. “The man is the most incredible guy, you will ever meet in your life.”
That True grit Star loves to run and circuit train, and enjoys doing Pilates, yoga and taking dance classes with her friends, all of which have helped her to challenge her physical stamina and train her emotional and mental toughness.
Ahead, Steinfeld reveals the products that always support her when she works out, from her favorite sunscreen and sneakers to the water that keeps her moving.
Water enriched with electrolytes and minerals
Steinfeld admits that she was once “someone who needed reminding to stay hydrated.” Now this pH-balanced Core Hydration H2O is something she “can’t live without”.
Her #1 tip for drinking enough H2O every day: Start early; drink often. “It [should] be the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning. Then simply maintain it throughout the day. You will feel the difference 100%.”

Plant based protein bars
For a “quick burst of energy and a great source of protein,” Steinfeld snacks on these crunchy mezcla bars flavored with peanut butter, matcha vanilla, hot chocolate, and maple blueberry.
“They are so delicious. If I find something I’m obsessed with, oh my god, it’ll be the only thing I’ll have in my pocket until the end of time. And these bars are amazing,” she says.

“Eyebrows are great important to me – if I don’t have those suckers polished up and looking good, it’s not good for everyone involved,” jokes Steinfeld.
The actress holds her arches in place with this “good, solid, trustworthy” Patrick Ta brow gel, which she “highly recommends” for its strong hold and long-lasting hold.

“There is nothing better than moisturizing the lips. I love MARA and this lip balm is so hydrating and so silky.”

When she’s out, Steinfeld always looks at Supergoop! to ensure their skin is protected.
“Sometimes I just use the glowscreen, put on some lip balm, curl my lashes – I feel like my face is full [of makeup on]. But above all, I am protected from the sun,” says Steinfeld.

Silk hair ties
“Not only do I feel chic wearing silk scrunchies, they’re great because they don’t break or wrinkle,” Steinfeld enthuses of the one hair accessory she lives in.

“Running shoes are hard to come by [especially] the ones who are sweet and supportive. APL goes perfectly with it,” says Steinfeld, who also rocks her pair while travelling.
Of the few APL trainers she has stashed in her closet, her favorites are a pair in neutral tones or all-white, like these TechLoom Pro trainers.
