How old are you?
What do you do?
I work as a specialty food consultant. I’m also a mom.
Describe your beauty routine.
In the morning, I wash my face with warm water. About 3 times a week, I use Epicuren Himalayan Superfruit Enzyme Polish with a light washcloth on my face in the shower. The polish tingles and removes old skin cells. Immediately after the shower, I apply a generous amount of Cetaphil Daily Face Moisturizer with SPF 15. In the summer I try to make it SPF 30. As a kid, I used absolutely zero sunscreen so I feel like I need to make up for that. I use Lubriderm Advanced Therapy for Dry Skin on my hands which are always dry from hand washing. I don’t wear makeup every day but when I do it’s usually just a thin coat of black mascara, Bobbi Brown concealer under my eyes, Bobbi Brown powder and some shiny lip gloss or tinted chapstick. At night, if I’m wearing makeup, I remove it with Neutrogena Naturals Makeup Remover Towelettes and rinse with warm water.
What’s your favorite product?
The Epicuren Polish. Or maybe just a washcloth. I rely on that!
What is the one “desert island” product you’d never be without?
Any thick moisturizing hand lotion. I hate dry hands.
What is beauty, to you?
Feeling good in your own skin.
Do you think of yourself as beautiful?
Yes, after a really good night’s sleep!
What is your earliest beauty memory?
Looking like a moron with crimped hair and a turtleneck at a “beauty parlor” birthday party in fourth grade.
When do you feel most beautiful?
It doesn’t look the same every time. But I will say that it’s rarely after I’ve used a bunch of beauty products. It’s more likely to happen when I’m out doing something like getting messy with my kid, cooking something really good in the kitchen, or after I’ve had a productive day. Also, sleep has a lot to do with it!
