There are a few key things we all want in life: happiness, love, and, let's face it—great skin. (Okay, maybe health and wealth come before that...but hey, skin is definitely up there somewhere.) And between hormones, genetics, and in some cases, sugar and dairy, there are days when having amazing skin feels unattainable. That's why we talked to Texas beauty blogger Nicole Kestenbaum of Lipstick & Brunch to find out exactly how she gets her incredible glow.
Nicole migrated to Beyoncé's home state from Tegucigalpa, Honduras seven years ago. She got really into skin care when she turned 30, and noticed her first signs of aging—while still dealing with breakouts. She became determined to find the best routine for her, and after lots of experimentation, she figured out what worked best for her combination oily skin.
"My absolute favorite skincare product is the face mask! I have an endless collection of peel off, mud, cloth, and aluminum face masks. It's the easiest way to pamper yourself at home and revitalize your skin. I'm loving the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask ($24, amazon.com), the Patchology Flashmaque ($31 for four masks, amazon.com), and the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask ($135 for 10, sk-ii.com), which makes your skin look stellar before a big photoshoot or event."
