Why is clean beauty important to you?
I’ve recently turned 50 and felt like a lunatic, so I was prescribed hormones. The doctor gave me a patch that I literally just put on my skin and I couldn’t fathom how the medicine was going to get into my body. I quickly realized how direct the connection was between the things I’m putting on my face and it going actually inside my bloodstream. I know people have been talking about this for years, but it just struck me in a different way when I actually had the experience of the medicine being delivered through my—I know, I know, I know—largest organ; my skin.
What’s the one beauty product you can’t live without?
Necessaire Body Serum. I’m obsessed with smelling good and everyone loves the way this stuff smells.
What are your rituals to unplug?
I’m not so great with rituals, keeping set schedules, or carving out time. My one relatively recent (past five months) has been working out with a small crew of women via Zoom and it’s been great for my head and my ass. I’m gently cultivating a two-pack of abs.
Share your biggest wellness hack.
Letting my phone battery die.
How do you feel about aging gracefully?
I think it’s so challenging in the United States. We don’t celebrate wrinkles, grays, and saggy butts the way they do in Europe. I am doing everything in my power to hold it all together, but it does feel like there is a tremendous amount of pressure for women to look young. I’ve tried Botox and I looked absolutely insane and crooked. I’ve tried fillers; not for me. So, I’m just going to ride it out. We’ll see what happens.
Describe your morning skincare routine.
- Goop Glow Exfoliator
- Heales Face Oil
- and de Mamiel Daily Hydrating Nectar (assuming I actually leave the house).
I got this as a gift and it was one of the best bath experiences I have ever had. Thank you, Francisco.
I’m obsessed with smelling good but I’m not obsessed with aluminum.
Honestly, there is not a body polish I don’t love. I am totally obsessed with trying to scrape off every lump and bump off of myself. This one smells great and I love the simplicity of the packaging.
