Aubrey Plaza Reveals Her New Skin-Care Obsession

Beauty

The line was created by her childhood friend Johanna Peet

The following feature appears in the March 2017 issue of NYLON.

Aubrey Plaza doesn’t have time to waste, so she damn sure doesn’t have time to weed through skin-care products that don’t get the job done.

Lucky for her, her childhood friend Johanna Peet created the solution: Peet Rivko, a conscious skin-care line.

Here, we chat with Plaza about the brand, her skin-care routine, and the best—and worst—beauty advice she’s ever received.

How did you and Johanna meet?
We met in the fourth grade. We were close friends all throughout grade school and high school. Our families are weirdly similar—we both have two younger sisters and our moms are best friends, too!

What was your reaction when you found out Johanna was launching her own line?
I wasn’t surprised at all. She’s always been the smart one, and she’s always been obsessed with beauty and skin products. She used to make her own oils and face masks! She’s like a smart, beautiful lotion witch.

What about Peet Rivko was appealing to you as a brand?
I love the simplicity and transparency of the line. It’s an easy three-step routine and there are no surprises. I’m so tired of trying a million products with a million ingredients. I love that I don’t have to think about it anymore. I trust Johanna, so I know it’s solid. 

What’s your daily skin-care routine?
Cleanser, moisturizer, oil. I seriously use Peet Rivko now and that’s it. Well, sometimes I throw in an exfoliator or face mask if my skin is angry.

Why is skin care important to you?
It was never something I really thought about until I became an actress. Being on camera makes it important because it’s annoying to deal with problem skin at work. I want to be able to focus on being weird and saying my lines—not my face!

How has Peet Rivko changed your skin?
I think my skin is much calmer in general. I feel like it’s...happy now. Is that weird?

Do you have a favorite product from the line, and why?
The Balancing Face Oil is my favorite. My skin loves oil so I always keep a little travel-sized one in my purse if my face gets thirsty. Gotta feed my face.

What is the best and worst skincare advice you’ve ever received?
Best: Drink water. Worst: Use coconut oil.

Peet Rivko Gentle Cleanser, $30; Daily Moisturizer, $48; Balancing Face Oil, $56, available at Peet Rivko

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
