(BPT) - Every year, women spend billions of dollars on cosmetics and beauty products because they think that a complex routine is the key to unlocking their beautiful best. Women are busier than ever and need simple solutions to streamline their everyday.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominated star of the TV series 'Nashville,' Connie Britton was one of these women whose routine involved multiple steps. Back on set and busier than ever, Britton offers up her favorite tips for simplifying her routine.

* Connie's beauty secret: 'I have tried many products over the years and have a cabinet full of the latest moisturizers, sunscreens and foundations to prove it,' says Britton. 'I was so excited to finally discover POND'S Luminous Finish BB+ that has short and long term benefits - it gives me flawless coverage instantly and evens out my skin tone while brightening and moisturizing my skin. It really does it all and keeps its promise.' Britton has teamed up with POND'S to help women get flawless skin. The multi-tasking beauty benefit cream is formulated with Tone Perfecting Complex and visibly fades dark spots.

* Snacks to swear by: Busy routines allow for little time to sit down and enjoy a meal. 'I make sure to carry high protein, healthy snacks like almonds that are great for my skin and help keep it radiant,' explains Britton. As a bonus, being prepared with healthy snacks make it is easier to resist the urge to give into the temptation of sugary treats.

* Get glowing: Britton's other secret for beautiful skin? 'I love doing exercise that feels like it strengthens and nourishes inside and out, so lately I have been doing a lot of yoga, which incorporates body, mind, and spirit,' she says. 'I always feel great after!'

* Make-up for lost time: 'As a mom, it's tough to fit in a full eight hours of beauty sleep,' says Britton. 'But I'm always really amazed at what a difference a couple of coats of volumizing mascara make in the morning. It actually helps me look bright-eyed and well-rested.' After curling lashes apply two coats of mascara for eyes that looking instantly brighter and awake.
