Please describe your daily beauty routine.

My daily beauty routine is Neutrogena Skin ID- morning and night. I use a cleanser, toner, and lotion. At night, I do the same routine. I just add Renovage eye cream. I also use the Clairsonic skin care brush. I wear sunscreen EVERY day, even in the winter – Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 15. I actually avoid the sun a lot; I wear lots of hats.

What is your favorite fragrance?

My favorite fragrances are by Jo Malone. Lime Basil Mandarin is such a great summer scent and Blue Agave and Cocao is my signature fall/winter go to.

What is your biggest beauty disaster?

My biggest beauty disaster was probably trying to pop my own pimples when I was younger. I scarred my face. Now I rely on an esthetician or my dermatologist! The best beauty advice I ever received was to keep my skin hydrated; oily/hydrated skin doesn’t wrinkle as quickly. That is why I drink at least a gallon of water every day, and I’m always wearing moisturizer. I also get chemical peels whenever I can. I think they do wonders for the skin and they cleared up any scarring or hyper-pigmentation from acne that I had. I don’t think that products need to be expensive in order to be effective!
