Two simple ways I like to style my hair in under 5 minutes, no heat or products used. The first look may need a few bobby pins.

EVENING SKINCARE ROUTINE

I start with this gentle and moisturizing Kahina Beauty Cleanser and I cleanse again with the Boscia Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser. I double cleanse because the cream or oil based cleansers help dissolve make-up, and sunscreen. The foaming cleansers helps clean the residual oil and dirt from pores.

After drying my face, I spray my skin with Rose Geranium Facial Tonic. Some toners can be drying but this one helps my skin get hydrated so my serums and moisturizers can penetrate my skin better.

Next step, I massage my Herbivore Botanics Pink Cloud Cream into the skin and when my skin needs extra hydration I add a few drops of Herbivore Botanics Phoenix Facial Oil. If you have combination skin you may want to try this facial oil. I finish off with a Facial Roller which help products absorb better into your skin.

Goodnight.

AFRICAN BOTANICS Fleurs D'Afrique Intensive Recovery Face Oil / MUN Aknari Brightening Youth Serum / HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Pink Cloud / HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Phoenix Facial Oil and Orchid Facial Oil (More from Herbivore Botanicals) / HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Rose Quartz Facial Roller / SANSO Ceramics

 

AFRICAN BOTANICS Fleurs D'Afrique Intensive Recovery Face Oil: My skin becomes duller-looking in the winter months because it's so dry. Dry skin tends to look less radiant than hydrated skin, but that dryness can also lead to buildup of dead cells on the surface. I love this Fleurs D'Afrique Intensive Recovery Face Oil, it helps with UV damage, pollution, harsh climates and it's great for all skin types.

MUN Aknari Brightening Youth Serum: Another great winter pick-me-up is this Aknari Brightening Youth SerumPrickly Pear Seed Oil is extremely rich in Linoleic Essential Fatty Acid and super antioxidant Vitamin E. This helps smooth out skin and lighten dark spots and sun damage. It also works great as under eye-treatment because it helps with brightening and inflammation.

HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Pink Cloud: A good cream is a must for your winter skincare routine. Pink Cloud face cream is high in active natural ingredients like Rose Water, Aloe Water, Kukui Oil and White Tea Extract. I love how well it hydrates and leaves my face dewy not greasy. Sometimes I add a drop of Phoenix Facial Oil or Orchid Facial Oil for extra hydration.

HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Phoenix Facial Oil and Orchid Facial OilAfter cleansing and toning, apply oil for an extra dose of moisture. Oils are great no matter the season, but it’s especially helpful during the cold and dry months. For a lightweight oil, try Orchid Facial Oil, it's not heavy and works for all skin types. If you need more moisture like me, the  Phoenix Facial Oil works wonders

HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Rose Quartz Facial RollerI usually combine this tool with any of the oils and creams above, it helps my skin absorb more product. Integrating a facial roller into your skincare routine helps to tighten pores, promotes lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness (Tip: place the stone in the refrigerator or on ice), eliminate toxins and even out skin tone.

IN BLOOM WITH GUCCI

Perfume is like a personal signature, when it comes to fragrance I gravitate towards softer floral scents. Notes of tuberose and jasmine leave an unexpectedly rich white floral scent on the skin. Gucci Bloom captures the spirit of the authentic women of Gucci. 

For this shoot I wanted to visually capture the essence of Gucci Bloom. The first thing that came to mind was a dreamy garden setting. We shot at one my favorite local botanical gardens in Los Angeles that encompasses 120 acres of lush plant life. This thriving garden was the perfect location to convey the idea of ‘blooming’

Just in time for the holidays, it’s the perfect gift for the woman who embodies a unique spirit.
