Supermodel, designer, TV host, mom — Camila Alves does it all! Born and raised in Brazil (there has to be something in the water there!), Alves made her way to the Big Apple at 19 to pursue a modeling career. In 2005, she and her fashion-designer mother started their own handbag collection, MUXO, actually handcrafting each piece themselves. Most recently, the mother of two (dad, of course, is Matthew McConaughey, whom she recently got engaged to) partnered with Lucky Brand to launch a line of diaper bags. And she hosts the hairstyling competition show Shear Genius on Bravo.
Despite her busy schedule, Alves always looks radiant. To keep her curly hair under control, she swears by Moroccanoil products. She also makes her own avocado hair mask. "All you have to do is apply the mashed avocado to your hair, cover with a shower cap (or you can go old-school and use a plastic shopping bag as a cap, which works too!), and leave the mask in for 30 to 40 minutes," she says. However, if your hair is on the thin side, she cautions, this beauty trick might make your hair too oily.
As for her skin-care routine, Alves likes to keep it simple. "If I use too much product, I start to break out," she says. She knows good skin starts from within. "The truth about skin care… is that you have to make sure you are eating healthy foods — it makes such a big difference for your skin!"
To stay in shape, Alves tries to break a sweat every day. "I was doing the Tracy Anderson Method, and now I am working with trainer Gunnar Peterson, who I love!" says Alves.
The model-designer's favorite fragrance is Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. But the real secret to her daily glow? Happiness, she says.
