Rise and Shine
I often get up at 7 o’clock. I’ve a really, very psychotic morning routine that I attempt to hit. It does not occur each day, however I actually assume that it units me up for achievement. I’ve actually sat down and thought of what my non-negotiables are within the morning, and that is gentle, motion, hydration, and meditation. So the second I get up, I open the shades to flood our room with gentle.
I hydrate [with] lemon water I’ve by my mattress with chlorophyll drops in it. I meditate for half-hour a day, which has taken me a very long time to work as much as, but it surely’s modified my life, and I believe sitting with your self is so underrated and considering time is so underrated. It is helped me change my enterprise, my relationship, my friendships… And I’ve like noise-canceling headphones and a crystal eye masks, and freakin’ toe stretchers, and eucalyptus, like I habit-stack rather a lot. These are all issues that I’ve picked up from podcast company and thru the weblog. I have been capable of speak to so many people who find themselves extremely profitable, and put collectively their routines to make my very own. After which I make the mattress as a result of I wish to have a pleasant house, and I transfer. I’ve to maneuver. I do not test my telephone within the morning, I do not even take a look at it for 2 hours. I do not wish to scroll via it, I do not need it to be anyplace in my ether. I am on my telephone all day lengthy for work, it is actually the very last thing I wish to do. And one other factor that I do for routine that I believe is admittedly vital is studying. I am an enormous reader, and I put that first even earlier than work.
[I do] tons of magnificence stuff, but it surely’s fast. It is habit-stacked. Individuals assume I’ve this, like, 30-minute magnificence routine, I do not. I barely put on make-up after I’m in Austin. My principal subject is puff, and that is been my subject for the final 10 years. So the very first thing I do for my magnificence routine is 100-percent ice—I’ve to have ice. Whether or not it is ice at a lodge, the place I am dumping my face in a bucket of it, or it is an ice dice, or it is my Ice Curler that I’ve created during the last 5 years, I’ve to have chilly remedy on my face. Normally I am going to put chilled eye pads on my face and a few serum and stroll round letting these eye pads sit. I really like taking a masks and strolling round and multitasking within the morning, after which ice-rolling over the masks, that feels wonderful. However I haven’t got like a 10-step routine; it is some serum, it is an oil, and it is positively ice, at all times ice. I’d say the entire routine takes 5 minutes, until I am sporting a kind of sheet masks—I am going to go away that on for half-hour and ice-roll over it.
I do not wish to eat very first thing within the morning. That is so random, however I am going to eat kiwi earlier than I work out, as a result of it does one thing to my blood sugar, with chia seeds or black sesame seeds or hemp seeds. Then, after I work out, I often can have a cup of oatmeal and two scoops of protein powder and make a mush, and put berries on it with almond milk to get protein in. However I’m not an enormous eater within the morning. I love to do water, minerals, chlorophyll inexperienced powder. I work out often from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., so it is most likely about 12 [by the time I eat]. I wish to intermittent-fast within the morning.
I by no means put on make-up after I’m in Austin, however If I am in L.A., I put on it each single day. On video, on digital camera, on podcast, I often have my make-up performed 5 – 6 days per week—not at all times performed by somebody, but it surely’s performed generally. After which, it is good to let my pores and skin breathe in Austin.
[When I do wear makeup,] I do not like eye shadow, I do not like eyeliner. I like a brilliant contemporary, dewy look: youthful, a brushed up forehead, lots of concealer on the eyelid to brighten the whites of the eyes, after which I like a transparent lip. I do not like a ton of make-up on my face; I believe that it ages me. The one factor that is kind of feisty in my make-up is an enormous lash, like particular person eyelash extensions.

Proper now, I am actually considerate about what I am placing on my face in addition to make-up. With pores and skin, I am at all times checking the labels.
Each single product that we [The Skinny Confidential] have launched has been community-driven, and it has been issues that I really use. The Ice Curler took 4 years. The razor took three years. So how I exploit every is: ice on the face within the morning, particularly after a hangover or if you happen to’re pregnant or if you happen to ate an excessive amount of salt.

I put it beneath my make-up, I ice roll with it, I am going to put it on at night time throughout my face.
After which we now have the razor, which I am so enthusiastic about as a result of I believe nobody’s been speaking about shaving their face, however so many individuals do it. It makes your make-up a lot glowier, it permits your skincare to penetrate deeper, and it exfoliates the face. There’s this outdated saying that males age a lot slower than ladies, and that is as a result of they shave their face. They’re exfoliating on a regular basis. We thought a lot that it must be normalized that we launched a shaving cream with it. It is the primary ever ladies’s [facial] shaving cream, and it is really good on your pores and skin. All the things could be very a lot designed with the lady who’s utilizing it in thoughts. Like I do not need it to gather cobwebs in her drawer. I shave my whole face—clearly not my eyebrows. I shave all of the peach fuzz on the aspect of my cheeks… I do not shave my nostril, however I am going to shave my whole mustache space. I have been actually shaving my face since highschool. We have had so many readers and influencers attempt it, [and] it doesn’t develop again thicker. I’ve by no means had somebody attain out and inform me that it grows again thicker.

Anyplace the place I can simply get it in, as a result of I do have a 2-year-old, and I simply need to make it occur.
