Actress, writer and founder, The Local Rose
I usually wake up and spray my face with Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Essence spray and then I will put on a daily moisturizer like Simply Divine Botanicals Crème de Rose moisturizer. I follow that up with some Badger sunblock (if I remember).
Overnight skincare ritual:
My night ritual consists of using a Clarisonic brush to take off makeup or using Arcona Golden Grain Gommage exfoiliation beads. After that I usually use Arcona Lightening Serum and then Dr. Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil. I also use Bella Figura Barbary Fig serum—I will switch between these products. A good eye cream I’m trying out right now is Annemarie Borlind Eye Wrinkle Cream.
Who cuts/colors your hair:
I don’t really do much to my hair. I trim it myself or if I need it styled for an event, my friend Kiara Bailey will do her magic. For color, once in a while I go to Shades Natural Hair Color Studio.
I love oils for the hair—Josie Maran Argan or just coconut oil to keep frizz down.
Favorite eye look:
Just simple black eyeliner, but once in a while I love the cat liquid eye with an ancient eyeliner pot and brush I got when I was eighteen from Aida Grey. I also love RMS natural shadows in luminous gold or cream colors.
Nail color of the moment:
I’m so excited to see nontoxic nail polishes out there like the ones by Butter London. I really am gravitating towards natural nudes or bright reds and corals for nails.
Scents are so tough because I always have used just a natural oil in rose or musk, but once in a while I like to be decadent and wear Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle. I will be launching a Persian rose oil soon with La Bella Figura. That will be my signature scent!
“Never without” product:
Maybe coconut oil. It can be used as a makeup remover, hair conditioner, and face and body moisturizer. You can also eat it for good healthy fat! It’s a wonder cream in every way!
Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Italian women swear by hot water and lemon every night to keep their skin beautiful. I would also say keeping an open heart, letting go of anger and fear, and a healthy diet keeps one beautiful!
