This natural beauty is sharing a few of her favorite beauty products with us:
Three fav beauty products right now:
Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel and Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
My skin has always been on the dryer side, so I’m constantly looking for the magic formula that will keep my skin from peeling, and give it a dewy, luminous glow. Right now, I’m in love with the Drunk Elephant brand. I use the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration gel after washing my face in the morning and it literally feels like you’re quenching your skin’s thirst. Then at night, I use a few drops of the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. I haven’t used facial oils until recently, and this one has really helped lessen some of the regular peeling I have around my nose and on my chin. This combination has been magic for me.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (oil free, in “nude”)
When I’m on set, my skin is more likely than not, covered in makeup, which can be reapplied frequently for 12+ hour days. So, if I can go a day without makeup I absolutely will, and Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer is my saving grace. It’s lightweight but definitely has coverage for fine lines and imperfections. It helps even out my skin tone and give my face a healthy glow, while also protecting it from the sun. If I can apply some of this, then go on with my day feeling makeup-free and fresh, I am a happy girl!
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
I have color treated my hair for a long time and am always trying to keep it thick, shiny, and healthy. Part of doing that, means putting less heat on it. In an effort to not blow dry my hair so often, I have started using Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray and am such a fan. After washing my hair, I’ll put the blow dryer on it for just a minute or two, then spritz in some of the surf spray for a textured, fresh off the beach look. It gives my hair a little volume and makes it look breezy and styled, without all the heat damage. This product has probably cut my blow drying in half and I have noticed the difference in the health of my hair.
