Beauty Basics: Skincare

“…I love putting the same care into my skin as I would my body. My skincare regime is simple: good food and lots of moisturizer.”



“Skin is the most important thing. I cleanse with Clarins morning and night.  I like all Clarins products, especially eye creams and lip balms.  I also drink tons of water and work up a good sweat at the gym at least three times a week”


Early thirties:


“Every morning I alternate between Dr. Hauschka’s quince day cream and Jurlique foaming cleanser and day lotion.  Also, I love Carita’s skin gel. It tightens and wakes your face up.  I feel a bit embarrassed  being so enthusiastic about a skin gel, but it is amazing stuff.  Rene, an amazing facialist at Lulur in Los Angeles, turned me to SkinCeuticals eye cream and vitamin C gel.  At night I use Eve Lom cleansing cream and Murad Perfecting cream.”

Mid thirties:


“My daily beauty routine is – Clarins foam cleanser, Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant, Skinceuticals C+AHA serum and Hydrating b5 gel, Jurlique day lotion and SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight moisturizer.”

Late thirties:


“I love Suqqu facial cleansing soap for the morning – it cleans my skin without drying it out…I still use Olay moisturizer – and because I’m in my 30s I’ve upgraded to the Total Effects moisturizer.”

“In the evening if I’ve worn red carpet make up then I definitely use a cream cleanser. Neal’s Yard Rose Beauty Balm is a great make up remover, also Taer Icelandic, and both can be removed with a warm wet flannel. I follow this with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant – such a great product, the granules allow for deep cleansing and the paste consistency is very mild and nurturing for the skin.  After this I use Olay’s Total Effects Night Cream.”
