Mandy Moore isn't afraid to chat about some of the less glamorous parts of motherhood.

The Dr. Death star, 40, who is currently pregnant with her third baby, recently spoke with PEOPLE about her collaboration with skin-and-body care brand Eucerin. As she chatted about her beauty routine, the star shared some of her tricks for getting her two sons Augustus "Gus," 3, and Oscar "Ozzie," 19 months, to wear sunscreen.

"I feel very lucky that my boys are not super squirmy," the expectant mom tells PEOPLE. "They recognize that I've always been that mom that's like, look, I am going to pick your boogers and I'm going to slather you with moisturizer out of the bath. That's just all they've ever known from me."

"So putting another product on top of that when we're out in the sun doesn't really bother them or affect them. They're like, 'Oh, this is pretty routine for us,' " Moore shares.

While her boys are mostly good about tolerating sunscreen, Moore says she still has to act fast.

"It's as quickly as you can get something on. My guys are not going to sit still by any means, but they also recognize, 'I've just got to kind of grin and bear it because this is who my mom is,' " she -


As the actress begins to prepare to transition into a three-kid household, she tells PEOPLE she's just enjoying where her family is at.

"It's so much fun. I know that parents sort of love to say it just gets better, but I truly believe that is the case," Moore says. "We have one that's obviously potty-trained and the other's still in diapers, but they're only 20 months apart so they're just starting to interact with each other."

"My husband I looked at each other the other day and we're like, 'This is a good phase.' But also recognizing in parenting, it's an ebb and flow," she continues. "You cannot get used to anything because as soon as you sort of digested it and you're like, 'Oh wow, we can handle this,' then some other challenge is thrown your way."

"So we're trying to be present and enjoy where we are right now at this juncture with the boys, but recognizing, oh, I'm sure there's a sleep regression around the corner, or there's something sort of waiting to throw off the vibes right now."

Though she's waiting for the other shoe to drop, Moore says her family has a few fun things lined up for the summer.

"I'm excited, we have a guy that's going to camp. We're going to take a couple of family trips. It feels like a little more manageable at this point," adds Moore.
