My Beauty & Skin Care Regimen

A model's body, face and skin are his/her most important asset in the modeling industry. As with any job, it's important to maintain the factors that allow you to remain employed.

While everyone's skin and bodies are different, I've decided to list my skin care and beauty regimen here to help those of you who may want to start your own skin care routine but aren't sure where to begin.

(Morning - Night)

- Cleanse with Clean & Clear Morning Burst with Shine Control

- Tone with Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3

- Moisturize with Dove Deep Skin Moisturizer
- Exfoliate once to twice a week with St. Ive's Apricot Scrub

(Skin care/beauty regimen before a photo shoot)

- Shower/shave the night before and moisturize entire body with St. Ive's Renewing Collagen & Elastin Body Lotion
- Cleanse, tone and moisturize face once I get out of the shower (I don't wash my face in the shower because I like to treat my face and the rest of my body separately when it comes to pampering and getting it ready for a shoot)

- Use Biore Pore Cleansing Strips on my nose

(The day of the shoot)

- Cleanse, tone and moisturize

The most important thing to do when putting together your own skin care or beauty regimen, is to know your skin type and buy products that are made for that particular skin type. Visit a dermatologist as well so that you know exactly what kind of skin care products you should be using.

In addition to maintaining good skin, eating a healthy diet rich in fruit, veggies and some red meat will help you keep your weight together (and, no, starvation is not on the menu!).

As you pursue the modeling industry, you will always need to keep your health and your physical appearance in top shape. Aging works against you but there are many models who are well into middle age who still look great and get bookings because they started taking care of themselves at an early age. Do your best in this category so that you are among them.
