Tell Us More!

Walk us through your typical weekday skincare routine.

Wake up, buff face with UpLift roller, cleanse, mist with rose water, Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask eye patches while I eat breakfast, the Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse, followed by Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum, the Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30, then make-up!

What’s your go-to Erno Laszlo product and why?

This is like choosing between children but I think the Multi-Task Eye Serum Masks are the winner. They instantly pep my eyes up no matter how little sleep I've had and I can't live without them. ;)

Hustler, megababe, and hilarious.

Bands! You can take them anywhere, they’re perfect for travel and getting a killer workout in, minus the bulk.

If you could give someone only one wellness tip, what would it be?

Epsom salt baths! 2 cups of salts in a bath for 20 minutes. Great for a quick depuff, detox, and super relaxing.

What’s one of the most common things that people get wrong about working out?

I think too many people are scared to lift weights and obsess over cardio for weight loss when in reality weight training has faster results.
