"When people ask me about my skin care routine, I try to be as honest as possible. I am lucky and have really balanced skin so for me, less is more! I keep it super simple and use Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes.
When I am in a humid climate I steer clear of adding more products to my skin. But in dry climates I love to add Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer
to hydrate my skin."

"My favorite moisturizer is the Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty. I love it because it’s has intense hydration, which is extremely important for me having dry skin and eczema. To pair, I use the GinZing Eye Cream from Origins to brighten and depuff my eyes. It’s a great morning pick-me-up too since it contains coffee beans!"
