The Us actress says she sweats when she feels nervous so she keeps the wipes on hand when she knows all eyes will be on her in order to stay fresh and clean.
"I think deodorant wipes are a really good idea. If they're nice, they're small enough that they can fit in a bag," says Lupita when asked what her red carpet essentials are.
"Those days can be quite long and you can get nervous. I sweat when I'm nervous, which is not helpful in feeling fresh and clean."
Lupita is known for her daring beauty looks on the red carpet and admits she enjoys breaking the rules and exercising her freedom by experimenting with different styles and colors.
"Because I like to exercise my freedom — I'm lucky to be free. I didn't get a copy of the rule book so I don't know what exactly the rules are supposed to be, but I enjoy breaking them," Lupita tells Allure Magazine.
The 36-year-old actress also shared her beauty essentials when she's travelling, revealing to the magazine that she does whatever she can to keep her skin hydrated.
