As we countdown to World's Most Beautiful Issue, on sale April 26, she posed for PEOPLE:
Her mom taught her ...
"To moisturize! My mom is from the Philippines, where they use coconut oil for their hair, skin, cooking, everything," says Mitchell, whose father is Irish-Scottish.
Her coolest beauty trick
"I put two spoons in the freezer so [after] those late nights on-set I can wake up, take the spoons out and pop them on my eyes. It gets rid of the bags and wakes me up!"
She's not really a tomboy
"Even though I play this athletic character on the show, outside of it I'm the girliest. My castmates come to me and ask, 'Who's a good facialist? Where's the new nail salon?'"
