Businesswoman and Style Icon Nicky Hilton Shares Her Skincare Routine

The mogul talks gold masks, exfoliation, and SPF.

Business mogul Nicky Hilton wears so many hats that trying to pin down her title is a foolish quest. She's well known for being the younger sis of Paris, her modeling career is enviable, and she has her own line of shoes with French Sole. Along with being a mother to two daughters and wife to James Rothschild, this stunning businesswoman is also a skincare maximalist with an eye for shiny gold masks. In the latest installment of Masked and Answered, Hilton reminisces about past tanning mishaps while walking through her routine for refreshed, glowing skin.

Hilton keeps it in the family when it comes to her favorite mask, the Paris Hilton ProD.N.A. Gold-Tone Peel-Off Mask ($46). "I know you're probably thinking, 'Oh she's using it 'cause it's her sister's,'" says Hilton in the video. "But I swear it's so good." Hilton is fan of exfoliating from head-to-toe. She uses the Dr. Barbara Sturm Facial Scrub ($70) on her face. "There's something so satisfying about cleaning your pores and all the dirt and all the makeup and just having a fresh palette." Hilton is also a fan of the UMA Oils Absolute Anti Aging Body Scrub ($45) to use in the shower. A weekly body scrub keeps Hilton feeling soft and refreshed.

For the rest of her routine, Hilton reaches into her "Mary Poppin's bag of tricks" to pull out her skincare favorites. Her key to hydrated skin include using the cult favorite Augustinus Bader The Cream ($265) in the day, and the thicker Augustinus Bader Rich Cream ($265) in the evenings. For cleansing while staying moisturized, Hilton loves the Macrene Actives High Performance Cleansing Treatment ($95). For lips, Hilton can't leave home without her Rosebud Salve ($6). "If you were to come to my house, you'd think I was the owner of this company," Hilton reveals. "I literally have 100 tins laying around. It's the best." With her entrepreneurial streak, we wouldn't put it past her.

Further must-haves of Hilton's include the U Beauty Resurfacing Compound ($148) that she saw produce results in just four days. Another instant refresh? Hilton credits the Clé de Peau Radiant Corrector for Eyes ($65) for getting rid of her under eye circles. Finally, the former Queen of Tanning brings out the Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops Serum SPF 50 ($145). "I put a few drops everyday into my moisturizer." Her advice to her former self? "Wear more SPF and stay out of the tanning bed!" Preach, Queen, preach. Watch Nicky's full video above for even more details on her skincare routine.
