A Beauty Minute with Ilona Hamer

Morning: I wash my face with Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser or Aesop Parsley Seed face wash. I am a huge believer in dewy, moisturized skin so depending on the season my products change. I use Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum, Weleda wild rose moisturizer and then a few drops of F.Miller face oil – more or less depending on what my skin needs. I also just got the new Glossier serums which my skin is really enjoying in this transitional weather.

Day: I tend to travel light in term of my beauty products on the go, but always have a lip balm, a small bottle of Diptyque fragrance – either a roll on Rose or L’ombre dans L’eau and RMS Uncover Up & up in my bag. With these few things I can always be ready for anything. If I am heading straight out for the evening I add an eye or lip pencil – I use Chanel’s Santal eyeliner and Mac lipliner in Spice.

Night: When I have time, I try to remember to do face masks as my skin does enjoy the deeper cleanse. I love Glossier’s Mega Green Galaxy or the Aztec Secret Clay mask mixed with Apple cider vinegar. I take epsom salt baths every second day and it is my secret to staying sane and sleeping well. Before bed I use the Alpha Beta Peel by Dr. Dennis Gross with his rejuvenating night serum and moisturizer.
