W+B | BATHTIME + BEDTIME

My biggest secret is sleep. I think I need more sleep than most people and I don’t really fight it. I have to get eight hours a night to have a productive day, and many times I get nine. I think it’s one of the single biggest changes I’ve made in my life in the last decade that has impacted my health and well being. 

My favorite workouts are the Tracy Anderson streaming classes. I recently started doing these from home at least three times a week and love how my body has changed, I feel so much stronger. I also like to mix in yoga and the occasional Pilates class. When the weather is nice, I like to go on walk/jog combinations outside – it’s such a great way to clear my head.

SKINCARE
To wash my face, I use the same thing I’ve been using since I was a child – Cetaphil wash. In the winter I love the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil. Sometimes after washing, I’ll splash on the SK-II Facial Essence followed by a dab of the SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense in acne prone areas. I have recently gotten into the Drunk Elephant line of products and love their Retinol Crème and Glycolic Night Serum. After that I LOVE slathering Vintner’s Daughter oil right before bedtime. Also, True Botanicals makes a great Vitamin C Powder that, when mixed with their serum, works wonders to brighten your skin, especially in the winter. I also love the Tata Harper products – especially the Eye Cream! Once in a while, I’ll treat myself and visit my friend Shamara at SB Skin (37 W 19th St #3, New York; +1 917 243 1389) for microcurrent facials.

In the winter, post shower I splash my entire body in L’Occitane’s Supple Skin Almond Oil. It smells so so good my kids have also become addicts. The CBD oil from Charlotte’s Web has been a useful tool for me on those nights when I can’t seem to shut off my brain before bedtime—  a dab under my tongue followed by a book seems to put me out. I’m not fussy about hair, but I try to wash it less, especially in the winter months. I use the Triple Sec Spray from Dry Bar to keep it looking fresh in between washes. 

MAKEUP
I rarely wear makeup during the day, usually just a splash of blush/bronzer (I like Guerlain Terracotta “4 Seasons” powder), followed by Buxom Lightweight Mascara and a touch up of my eyebrows with my Benefit Brow Brush and Pencil. On nights out, I’ll add in an eyeliner (I like the dark brown ones from Nars or Bobbi Brown), and concealer – I use the Cle de Peau Stick.
