Camila Mendes on Hair Care
Mendes struggled with stress-related hair loss and shares with Glamour that she suffered an anxiety attack over it.

Mendes adds that it tames her thick and wavy hair.
Camila Mendes on Self Care
Mendes likes long baths and adds a face mask to relax after a long day of work. She shares that she even has a bubble bath playlist. She loves bath bombs from Lush and uses the classic Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion to moisturize her skin. She's also a fan of massages and prefers them over facials. She also downloaded a self-care app called Forest which helps people limit their phone use.
Mendes reveals that like many, she stays glued on Instagram for too long and the app helps her manage her time. One lesson that she has learned from Covid-19 is facing her fear of being alone. Mendes admits that it was "really hard" for her to be "truly alone." However, the pandemic has also made her realize that she loves spending time with herself and now craves alone time amidst her busy shooting schedule.
