Skincare Du Jour 5.16.11

One of my most emailed about topics is skincare.

People are very interested in my routine and how to take care of your skin. As I have mentioned before, I do not wear foundation. The reason being, i like to let my skin breathe and I do not like the look of makeup on skin. When someone looks at me, I want them to see ME not a layer of gook. Not to say everyone that wears foundation looks like that, but I have seen some unfortunate incidents.

The most important thing with regards to makeup is your skin, without a skin nice base the makeup doesn't matter and to me your skin is your base.

My number one tip is to drink LOTS of water and exercise.

I know, I know! Everyone probably tells you this, but its true. To have your skin glow you need to be healthy from the inside out. Exercise also on top of keeping your body healthy promotes blood flow and releases good for your hormones which are led to believe to help your skin. Whether or not this is true, I know that the more I exercise the better my skin looks!

In addition to the above, it is very important to go to the dermatologist regularly to have your skin examined and have any spots or dots looked at. Melanoma is very serious and can be caught very quickly and easily! Take my advice on this one, schedule your next dermatologist appointment now! Again, if you have problematic skin sometime you really need a doctor to diagnose any underlying issues that may be causing this, such as a bacteria or a hormonal imbalance.

With all of that being said, I will be doing a series of upcoming posts on what I use for skincare.
Please let a comment here if you have any specific questions that I can answer for you!



  1. So glad you are back to regular posting!! Can't wait to hear all about your skincare routine. I am eager to hear what you do for SPF and also when you do wear foundation (special events?) what do you prefer?

  2. Yay, you're back! I agree, makeup does look better when skin is healthy. Looking forward to reading more about skin care.
