Before she snagged the title of People's Most Beautiful Woman, Lupita Nyong'o had already won that spot in our hearts. The actress pretty much epitomizes what it means to be gorgeous, both inside and out. But, since we're always into hearing what stars' beauty routines look like, we were stoked to read Harper's Bazaar's chat with Nyong'o about her regimen. And, just as we expected, Lupita likes to keep things simple.
She says she loves African hair because it's "like clay. You can mold it into whatever you want." To keep her strands looking their best from morning to night, Lupita always keeps an Afro pick on her, for on-the-go touch-ups.
She is also very focused on skin care and counts avocado oil as her new favorite product. "At first I was using it just on my body, but then I realized it works on my face, and my hair too, for that matter," she says. Lupita's routine reads as a perfect mix between luxury and back-to-basic products, which makes her seem that much more accessible.
