What’s your nighttime skincare routine?
My nighttime skincare routine is pretty simple. I believe in using heavy hitters and anything that’s anti-aging right now has my full interest. Every night I do NuFace followed by an LED light therapy face mask. And then I’ll use Saro de Rúe Hyaluronic Acid, I’ll do my retinol, and I’ll finish with a moisturizing cream.
Why is taking care of your skin important to you?
I really believe that taking care of your skin is one of the most important things that you can do. For me personally, I’m a makeup artist and my face is my brand. Everyone is always looking at my skin, they’re always asking me questions about it and I also believe that the foundation for really beautiful makeup is really beautiful skin.
What’s your favorite self-care activity?
My favorite self-care activity is a nice pour of pinot noir and a hot bath. I love epsom salts, I love eucalyptus oil, I love anything that makes me feel relaxed and zen; it’s the perfect remedy.
What is your best skincare tip?
Less is best. We’ve really evolved from these 12 step routines that can be so cumbersome, especially at night when we’re just completely tired from the day. And the second tip that I feel is most important is to really let your skincare absorb. Take your time. Make your skincare routine a lovely practice that you do with yourself every single day. If you’re layering too many products on too quickly, they’re going to pill off your skin, it won’t absorb what it needs to absorb, and you won’t be as satisfied.
