The Australian actress Ruby Rose, 31, may be known for her kick-butt roles in “John Wick” and “xXx,” but this holiday season she’ll be trying out her comedic timing and singing talents in “Pitch Perfect 3,” out Dec. 21. Now living in Los Angeles, Ms. Rose, who is the face of Urban Decay, is often traveling to movie sets or on promotional tours. Still, she carves out plenty of time for her beauty regimen (or “self-care, as she thinks of it), for which she has dedicated a (dream) closet at home. Find out what she’s using, below.

Skin Care

I think the oils my skin creates overnight are a good thing and not really dirty. So when I wake up, I just use organic coconut oil on my face in the shower. I like the Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil best. I work it in as a hair mask, too, and I use it as an eye makeup remover. And I have a spoonful of it once or twice a day.

What changed my routine and really my life is the Think Dirty app. I’m obsessed. All these things I thought were good, or natural, were actually loaded with carcinogens. Now I shop a lot online at the Detox Market. They’ve curated and done the work for me. I use this vitamin D spray — it’s by One Love Organics. Then I have this little guy by Odacité, which is the Pomegranate Rose Geranium Serum. You add two drops of that to your moisturizer.

For SPF, Skinceuticals has a broad spectrum one that’s so good. If I’m doing a mask, I have the Mahalo Petal mask, which is hydrating. It’s good for red carpets and things like that. I also like a charcoal one from Odacité — I’m obsessed with anything charcoal. And also sheet masks. There are very expensive ones for, like, $105 a packet, and then there are the cheaper ones. I tend to have a mixture of the two so I don’t go broke.

The truth is, I have a whole closet dedicated to my skin and hair care. I consider this all self-care. I don’t really think about it as “beauty.” I really enjoy the process.

At night, I use May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon beauty balm. It’s the wildest thing. It’s bright blue, and you only need a small amount. It’s so nice on my skin. I also have the Dr. Spiller Cellular Cream Mask. And there’s this Molecular Mist by Sircuit Skin. It says things like “supercharged, anti-aggression” and all that, but it’s basically a bunch of stuff we need that we don’t get from our diets.

I also have the Nurse Jamie Triangle device. It helps relax my jaw — I clench when I sleep. And I have one of those weird, LED scary face mask things. I bought it online. I swear LED lights help clear up my skin. I do lots of trips to China for work, and they have everything. I’m sure half of it doesn’t do anything, but then the other half is amazing.

Makeup

If I’m not working, I keep it pretty simple. I use Urban Decay One & Done foundation and the Troublemaker mascara. It’s really good because it gets all of my stray lashes. I do a tiny bit of eye shadow on my lids — my favorite palette is the Naked 1, which are bronzes, golds and neutrals — and then lip balm. I also like to do a little bit of contouring on my jaw and cheek if I’m going somewhere. And I love highlighting. It gives you a unicorn effect.

Fragrance

I have a fragrance cabinet. I collect different fragrances when I travel. A friend of mine got me Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Forte when we spent a week in Ibiza. She said it was so we could always remember this trip. Then I have this wild-looking Lubin called Upper Ten; it looks like an old lady’s perfume. I was in New Zealand when I picked it up. It smells like heaven.

À la Rose from Maison Francis Kurkdjian. I was in Rome shooting “John Wick” when I found it. And there’s a cool perfume I love when I don’t want to smell overbearing in a meeting: Escentric Molecules.

Hair

In a dream world, my hair is Leonardo DiCaprio from the ’90s — the “Romeo & Juliet” era. Right now, it’s a couple centimeters off that. It’s a medium brown with lighter highlights. I had it dyed green for “xXx” and then black for another role. It’s taking a while to get it back from its super-fried condition.

My friend Joey created this company called Eleven Australia. He uses a lot of natural ingredients. The shampoo and conditioner smell like coconut and remind me of the beach. I also like Shu Uemura. I can never pronounce it — it’s too fancy for me. The Eleven Miracle Hair Treatment is really good. I always use that when I blow out my hair. I also like the R & Co Dry Shampoo Paste, but it’s literally like I paid for a bottle of dirt. It’s great, perfect dirt, though!

Other Services

I love meditation. I love cleansing my chakras and getting crystals and lighting candles. I take about 30 minutes to an hour to focus on calming and cleansing and getting rid of anxiety and getting out of my head. I do a lot of my own stunts so I get massage and acupuncture. I don’t love the needles. You’d think with all my tattoos, I’d be fine with them.

When I’m in L.A., I go to Dr. Khalsa, an Eastern doctor. I have a Western doctor and an Eastern doctor, and I see them for different things or for the same thing to see what they’ll prescribe. At Dr. Khalsa, they’ll do allergy tests, acupuncture, vitamin drips and cupping. I had a lot of skin problems for a while. And every time I ate, I would get crazy bloating even if it was just an apple. It turns out I had SIBO. You have to fast for a day and then cut out certain things. My skin cleared up, and it changed everything for me.

Diet and Fitness

I’ve been an on-and-off vegan for 15 years. I don’t drink. The only thing I never eat is red meat. I did reintroduce fish at one point because we need it for our brains. Then I had some tests done, and it turned out I had crazy mercury poisoning. I was only eating fish — maybe, three or four times a week at that point. I had to quit altogether. It took me six months to get down to a good level.

I have a great trainer. His name is Patrick Murphy. I met him through “John Wick” because he was training Keanu (Reeves). He’s so different. You’re at the gym and everyone is lifting a gazillion pounds, and you’re just standing against the wall moving your hands like a butterfly. You feel like the crazy person, but he’s not just putting you through the usual drills. I have a bad lower back, so I do more body weight and low-impact exercises. Yoga and stretching is a big part of my routine. I get up at 6 every morning, lie down on a yoga mat and do an hour of strength and stretching. It gets me centered.

An earlier version of this article misstated the name of a Nurse Jamie device that Ruby Rose uses. It is the Triangle, not the Acellerator.
