Lupita Nyong’o & Elmo Love The Skin They’re In


Skin is in for fall and next spring, and Lupita Nyong’o has found a new friend to help spread the word.

The Oscar winning actress took a trip to Sesame Street to chat with Elmo about the importance of our skin, even if it’s under fur. Not only does it help feel textures, enjoy a few tickles, but even shows how healthy we are by protecting us. Elmo did note that Nyong’o’s skin was soft and glowing (as to be expected from the Most Beautiful Woman in the World), but he also noted the rich, dark tone of it. “That’s the thing I love most about skin,” she said in the clip. “Skin comes in lots of beautiful shades and colors.”

With our most visible feature taking center stage this season, there are a few tips to shake up your skincare routine when temperature begins to drop. You can start by stepping away from the scrubs, as exfoliating too often during the chillier months can dry you out. You can also cocktail a hydrating serum, like Boscia’s new Cool Blue Hydration Essence, with your regular night cream to maximize moisture. Here’s to loving the skin you’re in!
