“Using SPF is important, as is having a basic routine. Use a great cleanser and wash your face twice a day. So many women my age don’t—they party, come home, and go to bed. I don’t care how tired or drunk you are, wash your hands first (bars are dirty!) and then wash your face. If that’s all you can do, at least do that.
“There’s a misconception that if you have oily skin, you don’t need moisturizer. Moisturizer doesn’t contain oil, it contains water and moisture. It’s hydrating. Oil and water—two totally different things.
“Just because you’re thin doesn’t mean you’re healthy. Look into supplements because many women aren’t getting the right nutrients, especially if we are eating poorly. You will see a difference in your skin when you’re eating right and taking care of your health.
And, “drink lots of water.”
In addition, Taryn raves about Biologique Recherche’s Masque Vivant. “It’s the most amazing mask. It makes me feel so clean: it pulls impurities and calms redness in the skin. Mix with a pinch of baking soda and it really goes to work. It activates the mask and emulsifies the fat in your pores so it goes in deeper and pushes out the gunk in your skin.” And isn’t that what we all want?
