Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Our sister site Racked LA interviewed the one, the only Lupita Nyong'o and found out how she gets her skin to shine as brightly as the colors she wears on the red carpet. In short:

I use a lot of natural oils—like avocado oil and Hawaiian kukui oil—and try to drink lots of water. I think your skin really needs to be nourished from the inside rather than outside, so eating right and drinking water really goes a long way. I'm very low-maintenance. Also she'll be wearing...drumroll..."a dress" to the Oscars. So that's something? Place your bets for which color she's due to wear with the help of the complete range of Lupita's ROY G BIV wardrobe since September below. · Lupita Nyong'o Loves Avocado Oil & LA Masseur Derek Cardoza [Racked LA]
