Paulina Rubio, who adorns the new cover of People en Español where she talks about the upcoming release of a new album and her role as mom, reveals some of her secret weapons to look regal on stage and in her daily life.
How do you take care of your skin? "With what I eat. I just discovered a three-day detox, some smoothies. They have omega 3, flaxseed, almond butter, coconut oil with different fruits. That makes you digest, that you take everything out with the fiber, and when adding to the vegetable omega 3 smoothie -be it coconut oil, almond butter or flaxseed oil- if you make smoothies three days with that, your skin has a luminosity and a very nice natural glow. I do this once every three to four months. It also has a lot to do with eating lots of vegetables, legumes and blue fish such as tuna, sea bass, sardines, cod and salmon.”
How do you keep your hair silky? “I take care of it with Koleston [Editor's note: she is the image of the products]. They are natural pigments that are not discolored and do not go away with water. I like olive oil masks, avocado masks. Crush the avocado and put it all over your hair, also the coconut oil. Many times I live in the sea. Sometimes I rinse my hair with seawater."
What did you learn about fashion and beauty from your mother? “My mother [actress Susana Dosamantes] is a very vital woman, super active. She is a very enthusiastic, very positive and very enlightened woman. I love my mother because she always supports me. Before being the most beautiful face in Mexican cinema, she was a young mom but she was a great mom. In a way, that's what I take with me and what I want to be. Maybe being an off-road mom is not the most glamorous thing there is, but the most beautiful and the most important thing in my life are my children”.
¿Cómo es Paulina la casual versus la elegante? “Cuando voy a una alfombra roja me gusta dar un espectáculo, me gusta verme guapa, me gusta brillar y me gusta ser original. No me gustan las tendencias, me gusta ser tendencia. A mí eso me da muy buena suerte. Creo que una chamarra de piel arriba de un vestido de noche le quita un poco de etiqueta pero le da un guiño. A mí me gusta que la personalidad salga, no solamente en la actitud [y] en lo que me pongo, sino en cómo me muevo, como soy”.
What will we find in your closet? "I like Balmain, Zac Posen. I love new Mexican designers, I love t-shirts. I am a lot of textiles, of fabrics. I like jeans because jeans can always be worn with a heel or with a low shoe. I like blazers. You put on a Chanel blazer and you go with some torn shorts and you are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo wrong. I like tennis with flashy colors, like I'm Chinese or Japanese, I like phosphorescent. When I'm exercising I wear black. It makes me more fashion. I always use items that my grandmother or mother have given me, a gift or a jewel, something that reminds me of my grandmother because it gives me roots. Before I didn't wear rings, now I really like rings. Perhaps my favorite garment is the shawls, they look very feminine to me”.
