She Takes Care Of Her Skin

Rush is open about her struggles with her skin, specifically with acne. She revealed to Byrdie that she is pretty particular about the products she uses. "I was using so many different random things that I'd read about—every person you meet when you have acne recommends something, and that doesn't mean it's right for you. My skin is much better now. I use Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen every day, and I use a hyaluronic acid from the Ordinary, and I also use a .5 retinol at night—that made the biggest change in my skin, I think. So now I've found what's right for me, but I wish I'd found it back then."


She Goes Makeup Free

Rush also tells Byrdie that she has stopped wearing so much makeup. She says that this has helped with her skin. "I try to not wear makeup," she says. When she does use makeup, Rush says she likes to use products like, "IT Cosmetics that I know won't break me out."


She Compliments Herself

Another thing Rush does to help her skin is complement it. She tells Byrdie that this has helped her accept herself at all times. "Every time I look in the mirror, I try to say something positive about my skin, because when you have acne, you wake up every morning and you look in the mirror and you think, 'oh god, what do we have today, how can we cover this up?' So, I really practiced changing the words I say to myself, and not saying to myself, 'Ugh, my skin.'"


She Thinks Positive

Rush tells Byrdie that she is a positive thinker. She says that this keeps her from spiraling or feeling negative. "You can wind up in a really negative place out of nowhere and your thoughts just spiral. So when bad thoughts come up, I try as much as I can to cancel them out with something positive or to shift my focus to something else, because the more I do it, the more I know it'll be a habit for me."


She Wears Things She's Comfortable In

Rush is a fashionista. She says to Refinery29 that she likes to wear outfits that make her feel comfortable, and that this helps with her wellbeing. "After I've been on set all day and I have the evening to myself, it's refreshing to wear an outfit that I've completely styled, that I feel good in, and that feels like me. Hair, makeup, and wardrobe can put me into the mindset of a character; it makes you appreciate your style more when you have those breaks."
