I would have dinner with Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
It’s not about having a lot of products, it’s about having the right products. Retinol is the ultimate multi-tasker. It helps to address so many different concerns. It can boost collagen in the skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation, and help with acne. The first product I created was Retinol Reform. It combines retinol and lactic acid to provide long and short term benefits to keep skin glowing and youthful. It’s really the foundation of an amazing skincare routine. Other than retinol, a gentle cleanser, an antioxidant serum, sunscreen, and a great moisturizer for your skin type are the basics. You can add in more specific products from there, but those are the essentials.
To me, success is helping people feel good about themselves. If I can change someone’s skin and help them feel good from the inside out, knowing that I’ve contributed to their confidence or being a part of how they feel beautiful makes me feel like I’m doing the job I was put here to do.
I spray myself with Palo Santo when I wake up and then I sage my house. Mornings with two young kids are chaotic, so I like to find a few moments of calm before the madness!
I have two daughters and they are my biggest inspiration. Everything I do is for them.
A long morning spent cuddling with my girls, followed by an afternoon spent hanging out with my closest friends and family.
I always keep eye masks in the fridge to help offset puffy eyes. I would also probably generously apply a hyaluronic acid serum to plump up and hydrate the skin followed by a hydrating sunscreen.
My dream already came true with opening this studio.
Spend time with my friends and family… and curl my hair.
Kiss my daughters’ goodnight.
You should interview Nyakio.[/mepr-show]
