HOLA! EN CASA

Alejandra Espinoza talks to us about at-home hair and skin detox and what keeps her calm during lockdown

The ‘Nuestra Belleza Latina’ winner has found a new love for cooking and is grateful for her family

 Alejandra Espinoza  is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Since California has become her new home in the last few years, it’s been important for her to give back, especially during this coronavirus crisis. The Nuestra Belleza Latina winner has partnered up with the California Milk Processor Board to ensure no child goes without nourishment in the state. The creators of the famous got milk? campaigns have set up drive-thru sites for families to receive food. The Univision personality enlisted her adorable son Matteo, who sported the iconic milk mustache, to help her deliver the Toma Leche campaign news.

As we all continue to follow the guidelines put out to socially-distance and stay home, Alejandra and her family have been enjoying their down time, staying safe and learning new skills. “I discovered that I’m really good at cooking,” she tells HOLA! USA. Keep reading to see what her specialty has become and how they are using this time to organize.
