The 'Vampire Diaries' star - who played Elena Gilbert on the teen supernatural series - has revealed her routine during the coronavirus pandemic, and she credits daily meditation sessions with helping to keep her mind anxiety-free.

She said: "During quarantine, I started doing a quick 15-minute meditation every morning, first thing when I wake up. It's changed everything, and has really helped set the tone for my day.

"It's been a game-changer for my mental wellbeing. I get it now, and I'm happy drinking the meditation Kool-Aid."

The 29-year-old actress has been going on hikes for exercise and to ensure her skin gets enough Vitamin D.

She said: "I've been driving to secluded mountains, and going on hikes to not only get a reprieve from being inside but also to exercise and get Vitamin D."

The 'XXX: Return of Xander Cage' star also shared how ensuring she gets plenty of shut-eye has worked wonders on her complexion.

She said of her improved sleeping during the health crisis: "Over the past two months I can proudly say I finally listened to my own advice. And my skin has never been clearer."

Nina added to Vogue: "My face has started to feel like a baby's bottom."
