Colombian-born actress, model and influencer Daniela Botero’s style is as carefree as it is sexy. When she’s not shooting campaigns for L’Oreal and John Frieda or gracing the covers of Playboy Colombia and L’Officiel Mexico, she’s hitting the gym and spending time with her daughter in their Miami home. And the up-and-coming actress, who you may recognize from the popular Spanish-language comedy Run Coyote Run, didn’t let 2020 get her down, either. “Last year was an amazing year for me,” she says. “Before the pandemic I started filming a new TV show, 100 Días Para Enamorarnos, which aired last April on Telemundo and in August on Netflix, where it was top ten worldwide!” Here, Botero shares her must-haves for spring.

What are some staples of your beauty routine?
“Good sleep is the most important, plus green juice every morning and exercising a minimum of four times a week. Also, I’m a big fan of monthly platelet-rich plasma facials, which keeps my face glowing!”
