What’s your morning routine?
I usually wake up by 7 a.m. I have a household that starts early so I’m an early riser. I rarely have any quiet time to myself, so once I send my youngest son off to school, I try to take advantage of that window of peace and quiet. That’s my beauty ritual. It makes me feel recharged and calms me down and gives me solitude before I start my day. I really need it to keep myself balanced. When getting ready, I use our Signature body soaps for my hands and in the shower and I alternate between our Body Butter and Tuberose Body Crème. For my face, I use our Ocean Mineral Face Wash both day and night, Vitamin C Intensive Day Cream and a new anti-aging treatment that’s launching later this year. I’m loyal to Frédéric Fekkai’s Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner. Since I’m not a big breakfast person, I just have one or two cups of black coffee. I’m usually out the door in an hour. 

Describe a typical day at work
I spend my mornings catching up on emails and on conference calls unless I’m traveling. If I’m in the office I eat lunch with my team members and since I generally skip breakfast, I’m starving right around noon. I’ll have a salad with vegetables and grilled chicken with water or an occasional Diet Pepsi. I also snack throughout the day on raw almonds. After lunch, my team and I are usually in back-to-back meetings. Then I work on scheduling, developing new products, recapping the week and new initiatives. If I’m out of the office, I’m usually in meetings, grabbing whatever I can to eat and then I head home. 

What do you do after work?
Since I’m at the office all day away from my family, I love spending time with them. Sometimes I’ll step out to catch up with friends, but I usually pick up or cook dinner for my family. I’ll cook some kind of protein with veggies and a starch. I don’t eat wheat or dairy and since my husband is allergic to shellfish, we really rely on chicken, beef and sushi a lot. I’m usually in bed by 11:30 p.m.

Any new products your excited about?
We are adding new serums later this year that have key ingredients that will speed up the reversal of signs of aging and skin regeneration. I can’t wait to share more details once they launch!

Are there any interesting steps in your beauty routine?
I use our Vitamin C Intensive Day Cream all throughout the day. It’s the right weight and texture for my skin and I feel instantly hydrated after putting it on. I love the fact that you can tap it in even after applying makeup without disturbing it and instead, it gives a dewy look that you sometimes need when your skin is feeling dry.

What would we be surprised to know about you?
I have a household full of boys and even have three male dogs!
