Let's be honest, we won't take skincare tips from just anyone. But when we caught up with Emmy Rossum and got her to share some of her secrets to flawless skin, we made sure to take detailed notes.

As it turns out, Rossum is just like any normal gal—she uses Pinterest to plan her wardrobe, she splurges on shoes, she pops pimples (something she claims she's good at) and, she too worries about clear skin. But as she told us, with a diligent routine and some secret weapons, flawless, amazing skin is not an impossible goal.

With a busy schedule on Shameless, it might be easy for Rossum to crash at the end of a long day. But she stressed the importance of washing her face each night and exfoliating with her Clarisonic. "I always wash and scrub!" she insisted.

As for her morning makeup routine, she emphasized the importance of finding a good multi-tasking product to take care of both skincare needs as well as beauty needs. "I don’t have the patience for a long beauty routine," she said. "I need it all in one."

Her do-it-all secret weapon? Origins Smarty Plants CC cream. "It’s got your SPF in it, which is super important," she said. "Plus, it has color enough to provide coverage, and it’s hydrating like a moisturizer. It’s a little bit more effective than your normal tinted moisturizer!"

But beside being our role model for flawless skin, Rossum revealed to us her hidden beauty talent and is now our role model for... nail art. Yes, you read that correctly.

"I’m a frustrated aesthetician," she said. "I have nail parties at my house. We do little mini manicure. I mean I push back cuticles, I cut cuticles, I do designs, the whole thing."

Her coolest creation? A friend's name. "I did 'Katie' in a heart on her thumb in a blue matte with white on it."

Impressive, huh? Clearly, we're waiting for our invite to the next nail party.

So there you have it straight from Rossum, herself. The secret to gorgeous skin is as simple as washing your face, exfoliating, and finding a good do-it-all.
