Amid the tassels, fringe, cutoffs, and fanny packs at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2017, there’s one style that you won’t catch on Troian Bellisario, and it all stems from her biggest fashion regret.
“One year I went full Coachella, like full ‘Chella,’ and wore really short denim shorts, a kimono, and four-inch wedges,” Bellisario told Brit + Co. “I got stuck in a sandstorm and tried to make a cop arrest me just to take me out of the arena.” Every year since the Pretty Little Liars star has learned from her mistake and left the heels at home. “Since then I’ve been like Converses or flat shoes,” she said. “Just flat shoes.”
And, naturally, she keeps her beauty essentials pared down to one essential ingredient: SPF. “Everything I do has to have sunblock,” she said. “I’m also a sunblock fiend with my friends. I will not let anyone get burned on my watch.”

More than protection against harmful UV rays, Bellisario, who married Patrick J. Adams in December 2016, makes sure to pack a hydrating lip balm for the dry, desert heat.
The Sister Cities actress, who partnered with Burt’s Bees for the second year for its Bring Back the Bees campaign, is stashing her Limited Edition Coconut & Pear Lip Balm ($3) in her backpack all spring and summer long. With every purchase of the stick, Burt’s Bees will plant 5,000 wildflowers.
But, that’s not the only way the official co-ambassador is helping the company achieve its goal of planting over two billion bee-nourishing wildflower seeds. And it all starts with your cell phone. “I know everybody out there likes to take selfies,” Bellisario said. “So take one on SelflessSelfie.BurtsBees.com, post it with the #SeflessSelfie hashtag, and Burt’s Bees will plant 5,000 wildflowers.”
So, what are you waiting for? Break out your phone and post a selfie to save the bees!
