Self-Care #STAYATHOME Virtual Getaway
How do you spend the first thirty minutes of your day?
I set the tone for my day by accomplishing something right away, which is normally answering emails. The next thing I do is, wake my daughter and feed her breakfast.
What is your everyday skincare routine?
I like to change my skincare routine up from day to day! I always wash my face with a balancing cleanser. Then depending on whether my skin is more dry or I’m having a break out, I’ll choose an exfoliating gel serum or a hyaluronic acid/hydrating serum. Next, moisturize!
What have you been doing to incorporate “self-care” into your time at home?
I’ve been taking bubble baths, trying all the masks, exercising and making sure I get some alone time to meditate.
Where do you get your beauty products?
I order all of them online.
How often do you try new products?
I am constantly trying new products. I have my staples that I don’t really stray from, but I like to know what’s out there.
What qualities do you look for in skincare?
I always look for the least amount of chemicals. The more natural the product, the better. I look for gentle, yet effective.
What are three beauty products you cannot live without?
A lip mask, a good moisturizer and sunscreen.
Give us a 5 minute skincare/makeup strategy for your next Zoom meeting or date.
My zoom skincare/make up strategy has been pretty basic lately. First, moisturize! Then patch on the concealer to cover up the dark circles, add a little brow, a little mascara, lip mask and boom! You’re ready!
What are your tips and tricks to keeping healthy, clear skin?
I never go to bed without washing my face, drink as much water as I can throughout the day, wear sunscreen and use a gentle exfoliant 1-2x per week.
Do you have any other beauty hacks you can share with us?
Do face masks in the shower! My favorite right now is Pixi’s Shower Facial. It’s like being in a giant steam room!
Can you share a recipe with us that you enjoy making at home?

Where do you live and what do you enjoy spending most of your time doing?
I live in Phoenix and when I’m home I love to swim in the pool with my fam and explore all of the hiking trails nearby.
