Best Piece of Beauty Advice: Wash your face every single night no matter what! In my opinion, there's nothing worse than going to bed with a face full of makeup. it only instigates breakouts, dryness and, come morning, your skin will look dull and zapped of any life.

Regimen: While this changes based on what my skin needs, on a daily basis I wash with a gel cleanser, apply eye cream, use at least two serums; one to repair my skin, one with antioxidants to protect it, and slater on the sunscreen. At night, I swap SPF for Retin-A and apply a light moisturizer as needed. I'm diligent about professional facials every three to four weeks, exfoliating my skin at home weekly and using masks when my skin needs a little pick-me-up and Botox and fillers regularly.
