Hollywood Hills-based actor Kelly Lynch is busier than ever. There’s her newly launched L.A./California-centric Instagram style feed, @LACaKe, where she posts what she and her bestie, Carlota Espinosa, are crushing on. And there’s Lynch’s latest film, On the Rocks, directed by Sofia Coppola. Still, she never strays from self-care.

Lynch survived a near-fatal car accident 40 years ago. “I had to learn to walk again,” she shares. “That I was an athlete, young and strong, saved me.” Lynch views her thrice-weekly workouts — strength training, plyometrics, Pilates — with trainer Boba Andric with almost religious vigor. “It’s another form of meditation, keeping my body fit, letting those fabulous endorphins surge. Later, I’ll hack a double espresso cappuccino with foamed oat milk and a mix of maca, he shou wu, collagen and pearl powders, plus a sprinkle of stevia.”
