My career as a professional Salsa dancer kept me in healthy shape most of my life. But now my acting schedule doesn’t allow me to workout as often as I’d like, so whenever I can I fit in a dance session with one of my best friends, Stephanie Stevenson. She’s LA’s top female Salsa dancer, I’m not lying. If you want to learn salsa, she’s the one to go to. Check out our Salsa-fusion dance session on our IG’s!

When I don’t have time for the gym, I’ll take Core Power Yoga sculpt. It’s my second favorite workout next to salsa.

When I hit the gym, I don’t leave the house without my Nike Free flyknits and workout apparel from Alo Yoga.

Skincare and Makeup make me so happy.

For skincare, I love to switch it up. Right now I’m using La Roche-Posay face cleansersCaudalie Beauty ElixirKorres Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturizing & Brightening Cream, Shisedo Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 and Apothia IF Body Lotion.

I used to be a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics while studying acting in New York. I could talk about makeup ALL DAY. My favorites ...
Foundation: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Mascara: Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara
Lip Gloss: Bobbi Brown in Petal 3
And I cannot live without this: Mac Trace Gold Powder Blush
Most recent find that I’m obsessed with: Chosungh 22 Raybeam Highlighter in Pink Glow

My secret to healthy skin: Solbar Zinc Sunscreen
My secret to better sleep: Yogi Soothing Caramel Bedtime Tea
My secret to perfect hair: Rene Furterer Ultimate Renewal Mask

I think the main thing that keeps me healthy AND keeps my skin in check is no alcohol, no smoking, and lots and lots of sunscreen!
