My Morning Skincare Routine as a Professional Model

This post is sponsored by Sally B's.

Being a model for over twenty years, I can't tell you how many times I've sat down to get my makeup done for a photo shoot. One of the main reasons I've been able to stay in the industry for so long is because I use quality products to take care of my skin. For years, makeup artists have commented on how fresh my skin was and asked me what I was doing differently than the others. For me, it comes down to a few key priorities: eating well, hydrating properly, and using a good skincare line.

I've tried a slew of products through the years but there's only one I keep going back to... and that's Sally B's Skin Yummies. I've been using several of their products for the most part of 10+ years because I'm SO impressed with the quality and how it makes my skin GLOW. In fact, many of the other lines I've tried along the way would cause my skin to break out... leaving me to run back to Sally B's making me more and more loyal each time. So I can attest that if your skin is anything like mine, this is the only skincare product line you need!

My Morning Skincare Routine

Step 01: I like to start my routine in the shower with the Tamanu Luxury Facial Cleanser using a washcloth as my exfoliator. A little bit goes a long way and if there's any residual makeup leftover from the day before, I can count on the cleanser to remove the last of it. The base of this cleanser is olive and coconut oil and it has lots more yummy ingredients (see what I did there?!).

Step 02: My next step is to apply a light coat of the Peptide Booster Serum. This is one of my go-to's because it's lightweight and boosts the skin’s collagen and elastin production for firmer skin which helps minimize the signs of aging... and seeing as how I'm 38, I'm all about anything that'll help me stay looking young for as long as possible.

Step 03: Next, I get to apply my favorite Sally B's product of all, the Citrine Botanical Complete Treatment. It smells divine! I admit this is a splurge purchase being at a higher price point than other Sally B's products. They sent me a sample when I ordered some other products and you better believe I used every last drop and promptly ordered a full bottle (and then several others!). I promise it's worth the splurge. Oh, and did I mention it also has anti-aging peptides?

Step 04: My final step is to glide the Lip Assist Conditioning Treatment over my lips. Oftentimes, when I sit down in the makeup chair for a modeling job, one of the first things the makeup artist will do is pile on my lips with a lip balm that's pretty much guaranteed to dry out my lips before we finish the first shot. By applying this, I can assure my makeup artist that my lips are properly moisturized and ready for their closeup.

My skincare routine has simplified quite a bit throughout the years and I love that because it's simple enough for me to follow through with most mornings. Do I use every single one of these every single morning? I'm a first-time mom... of course not. Sometimes I rotate one moisturizer with another – as they can be used simultaneously or separately. And I don't always think to put on the lip assist unless we're shooting reels that day (which is most days it seems!). But on my best days, I do it all... after I get home from the gym and before I tackle diaper changes, sweet play dates, and meals with the family.

And that's my morning skincare routine! Below are the links to my favorite Sally B's products.
