Selenis Leyva has become an avid supporter for ethical beauty products. “I’m working to ensure the [brands] I carry don’t test on animals,” the star of Orange Is the New Black (season 6 begins streaming July 27) tells Us. “I’m not perfect yet, but I’m trying to get there.”

The 46-year-old mom to teenage daughter Alina spills the rest for Us.

No Sweat
“I have very oily skin. When I get shiny and people think I’ve been running around the city, I keep myself fresh with Tarte’s blotting papers and Kat Von D’s blotting powder.”

Sole Saving
“You know a girl has to have some ballerina flats in here, so I carry Footzyfolds. They’re black, fold up really well and are so easy to carry.”

Goddess Getaway
“I’m reading a Greek islands travel guide. When I’m stressed, I open up the book and escape and look at the beautiful places I’m going to see.”

Higher Power
“I have an evil eye on a necklace to keep away evil. The eye is working.”

Clean Machine
“I’m obsessive over germs, so I have the mini Lysol spray. Before sitting on a plane, I’ll take out the spray and wipe down the seat. People look at me crazy. Then I ask them if they want some, and they always say yes. It’s catching on!”
