She Juices


Green tells ELLE that she makes a lot of juices. "I'm becoming very LA. I drink lots of water and eat lots of green vegetables. I'm doing lots of juices at the moment. I kind of do apple, kale, carrot. I've got a fancy juicer. I started feeling very tired and everybody was like 'You should try the juicing,' but I really love it. I felt very weak. It was a revelation. And only organic fruit and vegetables. There's so many pesticides and shit. I discovered the book by Dr. Fuhrman where he talks about juicing and eating mainly vegetables.


She Runs

Green tells Marie Claire that she loves to run as a way to keep herself in shape. "I need to run to soothe my nerves. It's a good way just to let it all out. I run every day for between 20 and 30 minutes. I find it difficult when I'm away filming to work out on my own; I need someone to kick my arse, so I run instead. I'm not some crazy Hollywood fitness type. When I'm working, the only thing I want to do when I get home is have a drink."


She Uses Olive Oil On Her Hair


Green makes sure to take care of her hair. She shared some of her secrets with Marie Claire. Green says that she does things to reduce the amount of damage. "In the evenings, I put olive oil all over my hair. It's very thick, and nourishes deeply, but it can stay on my hair even after shampooing, so I tend to use it when I'm not working."


She Uses Quick Hair Treatments

Green tells Marie Claire that she keeps her hair treatments simple. "My hair is styled a lot. I hate spending too much time in the hairdressers, so I prefer quick treatments like the L'Oréal Professionnel Pro Fibre service [around £10-£15], which only takes about 15-minutes. My hair always feels thicker and healthier afterwards. I use the shampoo and conditioner at home to maintain it."


She Takes Care Of Her Skin


Green has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She shared some of her tips with Marie Claire. "Filming Penny Dreadful in Ireland last winter really took its toll on my skin," Green revealed. "I rely on good, fragrance-free make-up remover from Cetaphil or Avéne and apply a cold cream to replenish my skin."


She Wears Sunscreen

A big part of Green's skincare routine is protecting her skin from the sun. She tells Marie Claire that she always wears sunscreen. "I always wear SPF," she says. "But I find factor 50 too pale and thick, so I use SkinCeuticals Brightening UV Defense SPF30. I love Sisley's treatments, too."


She Loves Fruits & Veggies

Green tells Marie Claire that she likes to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables each day. "I've started steaming my vegetables, but I'm not a great cook. I like my food either steamed or raw to maintain the nutrients – and they need to be organic. I'm like my own chemist; I juice veg like kale, broccoli, watercress and cabbage to boost my immune system, and I add apples and grapes, so it's more drinkable."
