Like many people, Mindy Kaling‘s skin-care routine didn’t truly evolve until her 30s. These days, the busy actor, writer, and producer would much rather spend time taking care of her skin than putting on makeup – though she can’t deny the fun of getting glammed for an event.

“My skin-care routine is pretty thorough and my everyday makeup routine is really basic,” Kaling tells POPSUGAR. “It used to be swapped when I was younger. I used to spend forever doing my makeup and then just do the most cursory skin care when I was in my teens and 20s.”

Because she spent so many years wearing heavy makeup on camera for shows like “The Office” and “The Mindy Project,” the star says that letting her skin breathe is now a luxury. Still, “I’m also that person that loves getting ready to go to an award show or go to a premiere,” she says. “It does really transform my mood to put makeup on so, but it’s also sometimes a lot of work and I just don’t feel like doing it. I go in phases.”

Right now, Kaling is all about skin care and overall wellness. From her favorite dark spot serum to her go-to easy and healthy breakfast option, keep scrolling to read all about the star’s must-have items.
