Beauty secrets? Not for these Dallasites. Our four subjects reveal what it takes to maintain their envy-inducing looks and how they make it all look so easy.

Lisa Pineiro

Dallas beauty entrepreneur Lisa Pineiro is the walking embodiment of Glotrition, the two-step skincare system she created in 2015 that consists of a collagen peptide drink mix and topical serum. Pineiro’s daily routine—straightforward and results-driven—mimics her brand’s philosophy, and her dedication to clean eating and regular exercise maintain her youthful glow. “There’s a link between beauty and nutrition,” says the mother of four sons, who’s almost 50. “I used to take over a dozen pills every day and had a counter filled with lotions and serums,” Pineiro says. “I needed to make my life simpler.” Now, with the system sold at Nordstrom nationwide, anyone can pare down their routine. What’s next? New two-step hydrating, color correcting and skin defense systems will hit the market later this year.
