What is your skin care philosophy?
I’ve learned so much about skin health since starting at CAP (largely from our esthetician guru, Aubrey who works at our Fred Segal location) and one thing that’s really stuck with me is hydration! Most skin is dealing with water loss and hydration is key to keeping wrinkles at bay and promoting a radiant glow (the dream). It’s also not just about what you put on your skin but what you’re putting in your body that counts. I try and take a holistic approach to skin care and when I’m eating well and taking good care of my myself I definitely see that reflected in my skin.
Which of these products are a part of your daily routine?
I use Marie Veronique’s Pre + Probiotic Mist day and night followed by her Soothing B3 Serum and Barrier Restore Serum (I swear by this stuff!) and I top it all off with Kypris’ Beauty Elixir III. I literally slather my oils and serums all over my face. I love a dewy look. Then I put on a little bit of Dr. Alkaitis’ eye cream. At night I use the coconut oil to take off my eye makeup and I cleanse with Tammy Fender’s Cleansing Milk (I just splash my face with water in the morning). I alternate between Pai’s Skin Brightening Exfoliator (so gentle!), Tata Harper’s Regenerating Cleanser and Marie Veronique’s Intensive Repair Serum a couple times a week to exfoliate. I’m obsessed with Everyday Oil for my body and, of course, I use my sunscreen every morning!
What product do you use when you’re feeling ultra luxe?
May Lindstrom’s products in my opinion make you feel like a queen. I especially love the Honey Mud mask because it’s so nourishing, gentle and reparative. Plus it smells like a chocolate truffle. I also love Josh Rosebrook’s Cacao Antioxidant Mask and his Active Enzyme Exfoliator. The Exfoliator is like a mini facial in a bottle.
Any special rituals you’d like to share?
I like to make my nightly routine special by lighting a candle or some Palo Santo and really treating myself! CAP’s self care philosophy has had a big impact on me. I take my time washing my face and giving my skin the TLC it deserves. Then I snuggle up with my book or my new favorite show and put some Lavender essential oil on my wrists or spray The CAPtivator on my pillow...it’s the best!
