Born in Panama City, Panama, and daughter to former swimsuit model from Brazil Maria João , “The Fast and the Furious” superstar and Pond’s spokesperson, Jordana Brewster knows that beauty is part of Latina’s lifestyle.

During our holiday’s festivities we all love the heavy lipstick, the glitter, the Smokey Eye and the contour on point, but after we put on layers and layers of different products, Brewster suggests that Pond's Towelettes and Cold Cream Cleanser can remove all the stubborn makeup. “I’ve been using the line for many, many years, because my mom introduced me to them,” Brewster said to Latin Times. “I use the Cold Cream but my favorite now is the Pond’s Towelettes. As a busy mom they are perfect for my lifestyle. A perfect on-the-go tool for me.”

“Next year Pond's is coming out with sheet masks,” revealed Jordana making reference to the Hydrating Sheet Masks. Each sheet mask is alcohol and fragrance-free, and formulated to hydrate skin with an added glowing or firming benefit. They are derived from super soft eucalyptus fibers; the new Sheet Masks deliver an essential boost of hydration, vitamins and effective ingredients with every use.

“I’ve been able to try them and they are super hydrating and luxurious, but the beauty of them is that you can literally put them on and move, give your baby the bottle, without you having to soak in the tube if you don’t have time,” said the 37-year-old actress.

The sheet masks will be available nationwide in mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets in two presentation, the Pond's Hydrate + Glow Sheet Mask, that is enriched with a cocktail of papaya extract, vitamins B3 and E to hydrate and revitalize skin, leaving it feeling dewy fresh and looking radiant, and is formulated with agave extract, collagen and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and help firm skin, leaving it looking lifted and youthful.

"Hydrate + Glow Sheet Mask is my favorite," told Brewster Latin Times. “I’m Brazilian, I love being bronzed and tan. I honestly love my skin looking like JLo’s,” said Jordana laughing. “During the winter months I noticed that I look a little more pale, especially when you have the heater on and you can be a little dehydrated. I like that they give you an extra boost, and makes me feel better about my skin.”

As many Latinas, the actress also grew up doing weird stuff to look prettier, but according to Jordana, there’s one tip her mom gave her that she isn’t planning to pass along her children. “I just remembered –and if I ever have a daughter I’m not going to do this to her – my mom, I don’t think this is even a beauty tip, but instead of shaving my legs to avoid they grow up back with the hair stronger, she bleached. And now that I look back If I ever have a daughter I’m going to be like ‘Sweetie I’m going to take you to the waxing salon’ because I think that’s way much better that bleaching,” said the mom of two. “It is not painful is just time consuming and it doesn’t really hide anything.”

When it comes to holiday beauty looks, Jordana has a favorite. "I love doing a dramatic lips. Very, very deep lips and then going very light in the eyes," said the star. "But the other thing I really like is using tons of fake lashes, because I think it does such a huge difference." 

Brewster is part of the cast of Lethal Weapon - which is on its second season Tuesdays on FOX, and soon will join one more time her "Fast and Furious" family for "Fast and Furious 9," in her role as Mia Toretto. 

“Yes, in 2020 is coming a new ‘Fast,’” confirmed Jordana. “Can’t wait to get back together with everyone, because I miss everyone and I love working with the ‘Fast’ family. Also, I’m working on something called ‘Survivors’ which is a fun role in which I get the chance to play a strong character. I just love that as I get older the kind of roles that I can play, they are evolving.”
