Vanessa Hudgens was ready to party in a barely-there monokini and netted chainmail minidress, one of the several trendy looks the actress and avid festival goer displayed at Coachella this year. Taking to Instagram to show off the jaw-dropping outfit, she spread her action across four separate posts, with one particularly sultry snap scoring upwards of 900,000 likes on the platform.

Read on to learn about the activities that help her stay in shape, as well as the photographs that prove they work—and don't forget to check out the 30 Top Celebrity Swimsuit Moments to become beach-ready too!

She's A Natural

Going leggy in a see-through Natalia Fedner dress that showed off her bathing suit, Hudgens posed against a backdrop of Californian palm trees and flaunted her chiseled pins, and toned everything in the thigh-skimming number. "Miss V here, Reporting for duty," she wrote in the caption.

Her festival look included a Valentino satchel and a trendy straw hat, as well as biker boots for a grunge vibe. The High School Musical idol repped more than her go-to designer and was seen sipping from a can of her own cactus water.

She Values Her Friends

Other snaps taken the same day saw her partying with friends, with her younger sister, Stella, also making an appearance in a revealing cut-out catsuit. The 33-year-old also posted close-ups of her mismatched neon manicure and strappy swimsuit top, giving fans a peek at its glittery fabric and plunging neckline.

Spending time with friends and family is one way that Hudgens takes care of her mental health, as she told Glamour UK magazine last year. “You’ve got to take care of yourself," she said. "It’s easy to spread yourself in a million different directions, but at the end of the day, you are left to deal with yourself.”

She's On Top Of Her Mental Health

According to the Mayo Clinic, "friendships can have a major impact on your health and well-being," with the bottom line being, "good friends are good for your health."

"Adults with strong social connections have a reduced risk of many significant health problems, including depression, high blood pressure and an unhealthy body mass index (BMI)," notes the clinic's website. Studies have also shown that meaningful relationships and social support can promote longevity, especially among older adults.

She's Big On Skincare

Another thing that she does to keep healthy and stress-free is to take good care of her skin. Opening up about the power of a soothing self-care routine, she shared: "Skincare is a big thing for me. It’s really nice at the end of the day and in the morning to have a moment with yourself in the mirror and know that you’re taking time out of your day to love on yourself.”

She Doesn't Let Social Media Stress Her Out

With 46.3 million followers on Instagram alone, Hudgens has a strong social media presence -- and The Princess Switch star is resolved to enjoy her experience on the platform and block away any negativity.

For most of us, spending time online can eventually take its toll on our moods and thoughts -- the Mayo Clinic stresses the "observed links between high levels of social media use and depression or anxiety symptoms" -- but Hudgens says she doesn't "have time to allow [social media] to stress me out."

"That’s the space where I can share my life and be creative," she explained. "It is just a place for me to keep my friends up to date with what I’m up to and where I am in the world because I do not stop."
