I’ve been using Simple Skincare‘s products for over a year now, so I was incredibly excited when they announced five new products that hit stores in 2013!  I don’t change up my skincare routine often, but these fit seamlessly into my routine.  They were especially crucial during Fashion Week, when I was inevitably too exhausted to even consider taking off my makeup at night — there’s nothing like a package of makeup wipes to make you think to yourself, “Just do it.  It’ll take two seconds.”  And bam, you wake up in the morning with a fresh, clear face. 

And I’m so excited to give ten winners the entire new product line!  Each winner will receive a package that includes the Foaming Cleanser, Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes, Radiance Cleansing Wipes (my personnal favorite!), Eye Make-Up Remover Pads and Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15. 

To enter, just leave a comment below! I’ll announce the winners, chosen randomly, next week!  Good luck! 

Update!  The winners are comments #2, 8, 10, 11, 19, 25, 43, 54, 57 and 63!  I’m emailing today for your addresses.

skincare superfoods

November 15th, 2012 · 136 Comments

I know I’m a broken record on this, but one of the most important things you can do for your skin is to stick to a healthy diet!  Foods with vitamins, antioxidants and healthy fats will keep your skin glowing and healthy — and they’re easy to incorporate into your daily diet!

So I put together four of my favorite “Superfood” recipes, featuring salmon, kale, eggplant, tomatoes and avocado — all amazing ingredients that make for a terrific skincare-focused diet!  Generally, the richer the color on a food (naturally occurring — Cheetos don’t count!), the more it’s stocked with healthy vitamins and minerals.  So work a salmon dinner or a snack of kale chips into your weekly routine, and your skin will thank you for it!

Also, don’t just think about recipes — there are also easy snacks you can have on hand to sneak into your everyday routine!  When I get home at night, the first thing I eat is something with healthy fat: olives in our fridge or almonds in our pantry.  A quick snack of a handful of either of those and I’m less hungry for junk food all night. Seriously, try this!  Stocking your kitchen with fruits and veggies is also crucial — the easier they are to eat, the more likely you will be to reach for them! 

Last step?  Top your excellent diet off with Simple Skincare’s Hydrating Light Moisturizer, with Vitamins B5 and E and Borage Seed Oil, and feel terrific about your skin!

nyfw beauty essentials

September 7th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Packing for New York Fashion Week can be quite an ordeal!  I obviously need all my day-to-day beauty staples, but one of the crucial things is also anticipating the little things I’m going to need over the course of the week — something as simple as some cleansing wipes for a late night when I don’t feel like taking off my makeup, or a few extra Band-Aids can easily make or break an afternoon!

So here are my cricial packing basics — obviously, my Simple Skincare Vital Vitamin Night Moisturizer and Cleansing Facial Wipes, along with my favorite Estee Lauder bronzer, eyeliners and shadows, my DIORSHOW mascara and mascara primer, and Makeup Forever HD Finishing Powder!  (For a rundown on the makeup I reach for everyday, check back to this post!)

But there are a few extra must-pack items for NYFW in particular!  Band-Aids, obviously, and a tube of Neosporin for unruly high heels.  Bobby pins, clear elastics, and temporary hair dyes (chalk and Streekers) in case I want to do an edgier look for a night or two! 

Throw in plenty of Q-Tips, hair spray, chewing gum, and all my phone, camera and iPad chargers, and I just barely squeezed in a few inches in my suitcase for some clothes!
