What is your morning beauty routine?
The first thing I do in the morning is drink a big glass of water. Lately I’ve been adding a pinch of mineral salt because I’ve heard that helps you to actually stay hydrated. My beauty routine starts with a shower. Sometimes I’ll dry brush beforehand, which I really like for boosting circulation. I use a shower filter from Aquabliss to remove chlorine and other pollutants, which I’ve found helps with breakouts, dry skin, and that feeling of buildup in your hair. In the shower I like really simple, natural soaps. Palermo Body makes a lot of my favorite bar soaps, and they’re really great on your face too. Their Grapefruit + Juniper bar soap is probably my favorite right now. To exfoliate I’ve been liking Soft Services’ Buffing Bar on my body. After the shower is when I apply face and body oils, which is my favorite part of my routine. I rotate through a half dozen face oils at any given moment, depending on what my skin needs. I really like NOTO Botanics deep serum in the mornings, lately. I’m not a makeup person at all, but if I’m feeling fancy I’ll throw on a swipe of Kosas lipstick — Stardust is the perfect pink for deeper skin tones.
What products do you use throughout the day and why?
Right after lunch on weekdays I always have a matcha latte. It helps to power me through the rest of the afternoon, and it’s this perfect little sweet treat without feeling too rich. I mix Golde’s Pure Matcha and Coconut Collagen Boost, which is like a vanilla-y creamer. You don’t even need milk!
What is your evening beauty routine?
I’m much more of a morning person, so my evening routine is really just about getting ready for bed! I wash my face with either a bar soap or my new favorite gel cleanser from Circumference (that stuff is pure luxury, so nice at the end of a long day). Sometimes I mix a bit of a powdered face mask into my cleanser for a quick treatment. I use our Clean Greens mask for calming/clarifying, or Papaya Bright for instant exfoliation. For nighttime face oils, I’ve been loving Lauren’s All Purpose Serum. It’s a super-simple blend of hemp seed oil, burdock and rose. I love the smell so much.
What is your definition of beauty?
Beauty is really just about feeling like your best self. I keep my routine very simple, and it’s more about everything as an act of self-care than the pursuit of perfection. I don’t fuss over my pores!
When do you feel most beautiful?
When I’m comfortable in my own skin. Nothing too much going on, just healthy, hydrated skin and a big smile.
