What is your skin type?
My skin tends to get a little dry.
Who influenced your skincare routine?
My mother always had beautiful skin and continues to age so gracefully. She is my inspiration.
How did you find a skincare routine that works for you?
My skincare routine is quite simple as I don't have time for lengthy rituals. I know the products that work for me and I tend to stick to that.
What is your evening skincare routine?
Most nights after a long day, I start with a hot bath. I am a total bath person. I use bath salts and light candles to relax. I also like to play music that relaxes me like calming piano or even Meditation music which is always wonderful.
One of my favourite skincare lines is Eve Lom. I start by cleaning my face with their cleanser. It comes with a special cloth that is wonderful to use when rinsing it off.
Then I use the Eve Lot rescue mask. Excellent. You see the results right away. I use the mask on my face, neck and chest area.
After that, I use Merula Oil on my face. I Can't live without this product! I use it at night and day. It's excellent, especially for dry skin. Then I use Bio Oil for my body, another staple I can't live without.
On some days, I use Charlottes Magic Serum Crystal Elixir after a long weekend at the farm or beach for extra moisture for the skin before sleeping. And finally, I always use Eve Lom KISS MIX on my lips. It's the best lip balm I've tried.
What are your holy grail products?
My holy grail products I can't live without are all of the above!
What is a skincare hack you think we should know?
In the end, I feel that skincare is about healthy living, healthy eating and finding the products that work for you and your lifestyle.
Stay away from too much sun, I'm a culprit for this as I love the beach, but I always make sure to wear a cool hat to protect my skin!
And last but not least, try to find happiness in all that you do, this will always help your skin glow!
Are there any skincare rules you’ve broken that have done wonders to your skin? Perhaps an uncommon product you use?
I do take Super Collagen Peptides Powder in my coffee every morning that really helps for healthy skin, hair, nails and joint support!
