"My bag is like an all-preparedness kit," Kristin Bauer jokes to Us Weekly of her Steve Madden vegan purse -- and it couldn't be more true.
The True Blood star keeps sunscreen and multivitamins at her fingertips because "I always put sunscreen of at least SPF 30 on the backs of my hands when I drive. I take Wellness Formula vitamins (a trick I learned from an ex-boyfriend!) that really seem to work because I don't get sick very often."
Among the other essentials: thinkThin protein bars, a travel toothbrush and an iPhone with a rubber bumper -- "because I always drop it!" she says.
Below, see what other look-good essentials the actress, 44, totes in her bag.
