achieve flawless skin, by drinking a green juice daily. Juicing is a healthy way to get tons of nutrients and antioxidants to feed your skin the necessary elements for better skin now.
Whenever I get to see new clients I always give them a list of recipes for juicing. Most people in our modern society aren't eating enough fruits and vegetables. Juicing solves that problem very easily since one juice can contain a variety of fruits and vegetables.

I always wash my face at night, so in the morning I simply rinse my face with tepid water. I don't like using extreme temperatures on my skin because this tends to dry it out.
I apply my Rejuvenating Serum
to my face and neck and follow with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. I don't wear much makeup for work-I think it's nicer to see clean, fresh skin. I apply a bit of mascara and a Laura Mercier Lip Colour.
Overnight skin ritual:
I never go to bed without washing my face! I use my Vitamin C Face Wash, which is a foaming exfoliating cleanser. I take my makeup off with that as well because I hate fussing with tons of products.
I follow with my Daily Serum-the skin needs greens, and my formula is packed with vital greens for the skin. I apply it all over, even to the eye area. It makes the skin hydrated and lightens and brightens my face for morning.
If I have a big event the next day, I will sometimes go to sleep with my Exfoliating Mask on my face. It really brightens and exfoliates for a nice clean palette in the morning for makeup!
Who cuts/colors your hair:
For color, Aneesa Dial at Butterfly Studio is my girl. She makes incredibly rich colors and I look like I should have been born with this hair! For cut, I see Mandy Lyons, who is legendary for curly haired girls.
I swear by these hair vitamins I get from Dr. Frank Lipman-even my hair stylist says my hair texture and strength have improved dramatically.
Favorite eye look:
My eye look for day is mascara only. Wearing tons of makeup is just aging!
I love Chanel lip gloss in #04 (Spark).
Nail color of the moment:
I always gravitate towards the darker colors, so hunter green is my color of choice right now.
Jo Malone Orange Blossom.
"Never without" product:
Whole Foods Vitamin E Stick for my lips.
Secret to staying young and beautiful: I drink a green juice everyday!!!
Here is one of my favorite recipes.
1) My favorite Green Juice for rejuvenating skin:
1 green apple
1 handful parsley
1 handful kale
3 stalks celery
1 inch ginger
2 handfuls romaine
It's a bit spicy, which I like flavor-wise. The ginger is good for the defense system. All the greens are awesome for your lymphatic system, which governs the puffiness in your face, as well as carrying away waste and delivering nutrients to every cell in your skin.
