Lupita Nyong’o Reveals Beauty Secret

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o has shared her biggest beauty secret, revealing she smears herself in avocado oil.

Opening up to Harper’s Bazaar about her beauty regime, the 12 Years a Slave actress, 31, admits her low-maintenance moisturizer is the key to her healthy glow.

She tells Harper’s Bazaar magazine, “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! It’s a one-stop shop. Especially in the wintertime, when my skin is drier, it really seeps in and leaves it nice and lush. You can get it in the health food store, next to the olive oil and vegetable oil.”

The health effects listed for avocado oil, according to WebMD, range from promoting hair growth and healing skin to treating gum infections and arthritis.

Lupita is the current face of beauty brand Lancome.
