Jennifer Garner Can't Wait for Her Kids to Be Able to Have a 'Big, Old Germy Sleepover' Again

How Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams Got Dozens of A-Listers to Read Children’s Books on Social Media

The biggest challenge for Garner has actually been finding a little time for her own self-care.

“Last night I finally gave myself some kind of halfhearted manicure,” she tells PEOPLE. “I can’t say that I’ve showered every day but all the facial and hair masks that are in the drawer are finally coming out and being put to use.”

To get ready for a few on-camera appearances while at home, the 13 Going on 30 actress enlisted the help of her friend and hairstylist, Adir Abergel.

“Like really, even in real life, I famously do not know how to do my hair and makeup,” she says, laughing. “We FaceTimed and he was like, ‘Okay. Take your Virtue 6-in-1 Styler, put it in your palm … ‘ And then he talked me through it. I had no idea I could do it. So now I feel like a pro.”

Garner has also been inspired by the acts of kindness she has witnessed during the crisis and finds hope in “just the enormous love that people have for each other.”

“All the people who are giving us the luxury of being able to stay home, because they are stocking grocery stores and cooking in restaurants, and working in hospitals,” she says. “All of these jobs that are so important, are truly the fabric of society. And they’re doing them. It’s just so brave and generous.”

If everyone “can do that for each other,” adds Garner “then we have to be okay.”
