Emma Roberts has had a very busy summer. For starters, her film with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, We’re The Millers, premieres next weekend. She’s started filming season three of American Horror Story. And of course, she’s added extensions to her shoulder-length dark blonde strands and dyed it to a longer, lighter look.
“I just love having long blonde hair again,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s actually a fun change. I feel like with blonde hair, you can get away with going lighter on the makeup, which is so nice to do in all this humidity. And I can tie it back and do messy knots and all of those fun hairstyles for summer, which are harder with shorter hair.”
And the Neutrogena spokesperson is getting plenty of practice with heat-proof makeup while on set in steamy New Orleans. “Luckily … I like keeping it natural, or I would be in trouble in this crazy heat,” she said. “For me, anything that makes it look like you don’t have makeup on [is key]. I like the MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in peachy or pinky tones, then just mascara and I’m good to go.”
And when it comes to taking off the day’s sweat and grime, Roberts swears by Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes in Pink Grapefruit — which, coincidentally, can be one of two Neutrogena products you buy at Target to get the back-to-school-ready ID wristlet you see her carrying in that photo.
“[I like to] use them after the gym so the sweat doesn’t sit on your face, which is how I feel I used to get a lot of breakouts,” she said. And she also swears by a few other lesser-known tricks to tend to her hair and skin in less-than-ideal conditions. “Apple cider vinegar is great at removing any [product] buildup” in your hair, she says. “I also love putting almond oil on my skin as it traps in moisture after showering.”

There’s one constant to paparazzi shots of Emma Roberts: The young Hollywood starlet is almost always in jeans. So just like a good pair, she was a perfect fit to grace the cover of our annual Denim Issue.
In the August edition of the magazine, on newsstands July 31, the actress invited NYLON’s executive editor Ashley Baker along on her search for skinny jeans as she chatted about how she’s been keeping busy (both on TV with American Horror Story: Coven and on the big screen in We’re the Millers and Palo Alto), what she’s been thinking about social media, and why she’s not ready to grow up quite yet.

“I’ve been with people in the past who lie about what they’re doing or whom they’re with, and you always find out about it. […] I’ve grown up in a business where we’re taught to think that relationships don’t last, and that people are supposed to be married a bunch of times. But I come from the school of getting married once. Every relationship should be important. Everyone kind of rolls their eyes at me, but I still believe in the romantic movie outcome.”
On making mistakes:
“I can’t say I’m never going to mess up, but if I do, I’ll definitely be very sorry.”
On meeting her boyfriend Evan Peters:
“We first met at a dinner party, and then we worked together on a movie [Adult World], which we did not date during. We didn’t get along, actually–he wouldn’t speak to me. But it turned out that we both liked each other, so months later, we started dating, which worked out for the best.”
On her public image:
“I mean, I’m sure everyone can say this, but a lot of people perceive me differently from how I actually am.”
On growing up–or not:
“I’m not really obsessed with wanting to be older and more mature. I felt like more of a grown-up at 17 than I do at 22. I’ve been regressing a little bit: ‘Wait, help me! I’m not ready! Don’t make me go!’ But I’ve matured, definitely.”

We’ve been talking about skin health a lot lately. From sunscreen to getting your skin checked, this time of year when the sun is blazing it’s on all our minds! So when, per our brand ambassador relationship with Neutrogena, we had the chance to chat with actress Emma Roberts and celeb make-up artist and beauty expert Amy Oresman about their best healthy skin tips, we knew we had to pick their beautiful brains. And, guys, they had such good info!
But, first, let’s let them introduce themselves and say ‘ello to you all in person! Or video. You know what we mean…
5 Healthy Skin Tips From Emma Roberts and Amy Oresman
1. Eat darker-colored veggies. Amy says that if you really want your skin to be beautiful, you should make a point to eat plenty of leafy greens—and the darker the skin on the veggie the better. “The vegetables with darker colors are better for skin. They’ve had more sunlight, which is really great for skin.”
2. Don’t like veggies? Try juicing. Lately Emma has been drinking lots of pressed juice in addition to eating a healthy diet. “I don’t love vegetables, so I make a lot of juices to get my vegetables in. That way I’m still getting what I need!”
3. Drink a lot of water. One of the most important things you can do to have fresh, healthy and glowing skin? “Drink a lot of water. It’s really important,” Amy says.
4. Always, always, always wash your face. You probably already know to wash your face or at least remove your make-up before you work out, but Amy says that it’s important to wash your face daily because of more than just preventing breakouts. “Skin can get exposed and clogged from free radicals and pollution,” she says. Be sure to wipe down at least once a day with something like Neutrogrena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, she says.
5. Love your workouts. Emma says that when she’s eating healthy and working out that she can see it on her face, her body, her hair and her skin. Her favorite workouts of late are Ballet Bodies classes and SoulCycle. ”It’s fun to see how much you can improve your looks by having a healthy diet and lifestyle!”
