Eva Mendes reveals the one thing she won't do in front of Ryan Gosling

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have been together for quite a while now, but there's one thing that she still refuses to do in front of him. In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the actress revealed the good, the bad, and the ugly behind her beauty routine--and what part of it she keeps hidden from her guy!

Mendes, who pretty much always looks flawless whether on the red carpet or just out and about on an ordinary day, says she uses certain tricks on her hair and skin to keep them looking healthy and fresh. One practice the Pantene spokeswoman likes to follow? Conditioning her locks overnight to make them shiny and smooth. "Put it all over your hair before you go to sleep and leave it in a shower cap until morning. Then rise and voila," she advises.

But though she says it works, Mendes almost admits there is a catch ... at least, if you're looking to maintain some mystery in your relationship. "Warning: although your hair will be grateful, the shower cap look isn't the sexiest, so maybe do it on a night when he's not around," she said. Haha! I can't say I blame her for saying that. If I was dating Ryan Gosling, I wouldn't want him to see me like that either. Then again, if any person on this planet could make a shower cap look damn good, it would probably be Mendes.

And that's not her only beauty tip. What does Mendes say is the best secret she's learned over the years? "The best beauty secret I've learned over the years is that there's no secret!" she said. "If you're not well-rested and well-nourished, it will show on your face. So drink lots of water and eat well ... and ditch the cigarettes!" Well, that method is definitely working for her!
