my self-care routine

Flip to page 27 for the results of our Mamá Bonita Beauty Awards. RAISE YOUR HAND if you wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without a swipe of your favorite lipstick. Me too! Whether we’re dropping the kids off at school or getting ready for date night, we Latinas like to look polished. In fact, taking pride in our personal appearance is something that’s ingrained in us early on by the women in our families.My mother was my first beauty muse. She was a stay-at-home mom who was always cooking, cleaning, or taking care of someone, but she had lots of fun when it came to beauty, favoring red Christian Dior lipsticks, light floral fragrances by Armani and Cartier, and long “statement” fingernails that she had professionally…

around-the- world beauty

Whenever I visit a new city, I venture off the tourist path and get a beauty treatment at a local salon. It’s a way to immerse myself in the culture and see what it’s like to be a woman in a different country. So far, I’ve gotten a henna tattoo in Northern Africa and haircuts in Lima, Peru, and Paris, France. I’m never that concerned with the outcome: Hair grows back, but the experience will stay with me forever. ■…

alexa penavega’s island life

We loved her in the hit film franchise Spy Kids! (CHARLES SYKES/INVISION/AP/SHUTTERSTOCK.) Why did you move to Maui? Carlos and I are actors, but we didn’t fit in in L.A. Maui is so relaxed that it feels right. I grew up on a ranch in Florida and spent lots of time fishing. Something about the outdoors feels freeing, and we want the same for Ocean. You and Carlos star in the Hallmark channel’s Movies & Mysteries series. Do you enjoy working together? It’s hard when we have to be in different locations because of a project. One time we didn’t see each other for a month! We never want Ocean to be without either of us, so we made a rule: If Carlos is working on…

alexa’s beachside ways

> Her Faith I met my husband at my first Bible study. It’s given our relationship a foundation and stability. On Sundays, we go to church as a family. > Fishing My six siblings and I bonded so much over fishing. Now, I take Ocean with me, and he’ll sit on my lap while I hold the rod. > Instagram Carlos and I manage Ocean’s account (@oceankingpenavega), which has more than 300,000 followers.

our little monsters

1 EL CHUPACABRA This blood-sucking beast hypnotizes its prey—kind of like your sweet baby, who locks eyes with you when he latches on for dear life while breastfeeding. 2 EL CUCO He hides in the closet and scares unsuspecting children. Occasionally, this creature shows up at your bedside in the middle of the night. Oh wait, that’s your son. Same difference! 3 LA LLORONA She’s a weeping ghost who cries for her lost children by the river. But in your house, it’s what you secretly call your daughter when she turns into a puddle of tears in mere seconds. ■…
