A Beauty Minute With Laura

3 years ago by

Morning: I like to start my day off with vinyasa yoga, running or barre pilates. It gives me a boost of energy in the morning and a natural flush. When I’m getting ready I have a coconut water mixed with Garden of Life green powder. I take daily supplements – probiotics, algae, vitamin d and B12/folic acid – which keep my body and skin healthy. A few years ago I saw a holistic nutritionist (Sally Kravich). She completely changed the way I saw health and skincare – good skin truly comes from what you put in your body unless you are very genetically blessed.

Before I shower I dry brush to exfoliate and activate my skin (my mom encouraged me to start doing this – it increases you circulation and releases toxins in the body). I wash my face with Joanna Vargas all-natural Vitamin C cleanser (I go to Joanna Vargas for facials). If I have time I use Eminence probiotic mask (a mix of yogurt, cucumber, shea butter and tea tree oil). I then massage my face with John Masters Organics 100% argan oil and add a layer of EltaMD broad–spectrum sunscreen. It’s oil free and helps with breakouts. In the summer, or if my skin is acting up, I use Eminence probiotic moisturizer instead of argan oil.

On the weekends I don’t always follow a makeup routine – I like to have my skin breathe. During the week I either use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer or I will dab By Terry touch expert under my eyes. I add a light bronzing powder (Guerlain terracotta) to my jawline and cheekbones and sometimes Kevyn Aucoin creamy glow blush. I always brush my eyebrows up and use clear Bobbi Brown eyebrow gel. I find that it instantly makes you look fresh and awake. After that I either finish with a coat of Armani black mascara or draw a thin line on my eyelids with Armani smooth silk eye pencil in brown or charcoal and smudge it to enhance my eyes but not look “done.”

When my hair is damp, I spray it with Oribe wave spray. I normally let my hair air dry but in the winter I let it dry for a bit and then finish with a blow dry. If I have time, I use the wand and curl the ends for no more than five seconds to give it a soft, messy wave. Whenever I use the wand it looks great the next day after sleeping on it. All you need to add is Klorane dry shampoo.

Day: I carry By Terry rose lip balm in my bag (it exfoliates and moisturizes your lips at the same time) and a thick hand crème during the winter. I also drink a lot of water throughout the day to keep my skin hydrated.

Night: The only products I add for evening are Clarins beauty flash balm (it brightens and makes your skin look really radiant) and either a soft smoky eye or a lip. I smudge Armani eyeliner in charcoal around my eyes or use Benefit smoky eye kit. If I decide to do a lip I love Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella.

I always wash my face before going to bed. It’s become such a habit that I can’t sleep on my pillow with makeup on even if it’s past midnight! Twice a week I use Joanna Vargas exfoliating mask with Kaolin clay and hyaluronic acid. It works so incredibly well – your skin instantly looks brighter. I then massage the argan oil on my face and off to bed!”

  • She is so good! I would love to say that I start my day with yoga or Pilates but a cup of coffee swiftly followed by another one is my reality :) She has lovely skin and hair.

  • Il y a vraiment des choses ultra intéressantes dans sa routine, en fait c’est du 100% inédit, en tout cas pour moi !

    Garance, tes beauty minute sont décidément mes posts préférés sur ton blog !

  • She takes her daily routine qiute seriously, and I think it’s worth it – she’s got flawless skin! I agree that your look really depends on what you put inside and how you feel about yourself.

  • Oh la la, ça en fait des couches et des tartines de trucs et de machins…! :)

  • Great routine!
    Passa a trovarmi VeryFP

  • Wow! J’adore les beauty minutes!!!!!!!!
    Celui-ci est très intéressant, même si perso, je me vois mal la suivre!Trop de choses a mon gout, mais en tout cas, ça a l’air de marcher…

  • ““Le matin : J’aime bien commencer la journée par une séance de yoga vinyasa, de running ou de barre au sol pilates. Ça me booste et ça donne naturellement bonne mine. Pendant que je me prépare, je bois un mélange d’eau de noix de coco et de poudre verte Garden of Life. Je prends des compléments alimentaires tous les jours : probiotiques, algues, vitamine D et B12/acide folique, ce qui me permet de rester en forme physiquement et de garder une jolie peau.”

    Et MOI qui me traîne misérablement en dehors de mol lit , souvent en traînant ma couette derrière moi, comme un gosse son doudou, jusqu’au frigo pour tenter de , cette fois, prendre un VRAI citron, et pas du Pulco, pour me faire un kate moss juice de flemmarde (recette lue dans un 20 ans il y a 20 ans): jus de citron dans eau tiède…avec du miel (pour les vitamines)
    pour 2 minutes après, sortir du placard mon capuccino en poudre, parce que se faire un thé, c’est plus long (et moins nourrissant) et enchaîner avec un Nes, tellement dégueu qu’il finit dans l’évier (mais m’a donné l’illusion d’avoir ma dose de caféine pour affronter le métro, sans piquer du nez et louper mon arrêt (une fois ,je me suis endormie trois fois comme ça, en reprenant chaque fois le métro dans le sens inverse pour revenir à mon arrêt…mon boss ne m’a pas cru, mais bon, c’était quand même une drôle d’histoire..)
    j’ai parfois des sortes d’élans “yogesque”, j’ai d’ailleurs tout ce qu’il faut pour en faire chez moi (tapis, sangle, briques…) , sauf la motivation..mais des fois je fais des extensions, histoire de me donner l’illusion que je suis pas trop rouillée (vous savez ces trucs bizarres qu’on fait quand on est seule à la maison et qu’on porte un leggins, en passant devant le miroir de l’entrée..levé de jambe , plié de dos, position de l’arbre (malade)etc…).
    Bref, big up à cette fille….
    Il me faut un coach….

  • J’avais l’impression de lire un portrait de… moi!
    Idem pour le métro! Il m’est même arriver de m’endormir aussi le soir en sortant du boulot!! Si, si!
    Nan mais ça va pas du tout là…

  • Elle a bien raison de nourrir sa peau de l’intérieur, je trouve qu’on n’y fait pas assez attention ! Et c’est une vraie beauté naturelle !

  • I like these posts about beautyb routine a lot!
    But it would be more informative if you write what skin type do they have, because it changes a lot.

    Thank you!

  • mon dieu,quel ennui…..et sinon ça lui arrive de vivre?

  • Reflects your natural beauty wearing our rings.

  • Mon Dieu mais elle doit y passer la moitie de la journee !

  • Très belle beauté au résultat naturelle, je retiens la petite astuce pour des cheveux wavy !

  • I have a hard time imagining a dry brush session after a workout. I’m beginning to realize the best things for your look and mood and health are free: breath, water, sleep. So when I’m about to fall for some product that promises to give me energy or make me look younger I remember that. And when I’m tired or stressed and want sugar or coffee, my mantra is breathe deep, drink water, take a nap!

  • How does one body brush after a workout session? Do you wait it out to dry up ?

    I think a good way to inculcate dry body brushing is before a workout as soon as you wake up. Just before you put on your workout clothes.

    This is such a great routine ! I love all the aspects she talked about. So glad it more about greens and ingredients than products.

  • Vu comme sa peau a l’air parfaite et jeune, je veux bien essayer certains de ses produits ! Bon quand même pas tout, elle a une routine de dingue !

  • great post! I always love reading about what other’s in their beauty routine

  • Fort compliqué comme routine. Tout ce tralala ne sert pas a grand chose ! Pour moi, c’est de l’huile végétale après la douche et puis basta !

  • Je crois qu’elle a l’air parfait et jeune…aussi parce qu’elle est jeune.
    Sadly, I think I cannot even dream of maintaining such a complicated routine, having to work in an office for 10+ hours a day, and many km from home (I spend hours and hours driving, maybe I could apply a beauty mask while driving?) .
    It’s always nice to read what others are doing, though (la brosse à sourcils, I want that!)
    Keep up with these “beauty minute” posts, they’re so inspiring!

  • It’s always fun to read about a well thought out beauty and health routine. These are some great tips. I agree that some of the best beauty elixirs are free. Plenty of water, a good night’s sleep, stretching and deep breathing. Adequate oxygen is so essential. Practice deep breathing everyday. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea last year. Now that I am getting adequate oxygen again I can see and feel the difference. Just breathe….great post!
