The Secret to Perfect Hair and Skin? Don’t Hold Back on the Oil

When it comes to cooking, I’m quite generous with the oil—and my beauty regimen is no different. I begin with Kiehl’s new Apothecary Preparations, which can be customized with the addition of complexes designed to reduce redness, minimize pores, and so on. After applying makeup, I strategically dab my cheekbones with Diptyque’s almond–and–meadow grass Infused Face Oil for a nice, dewy glow, and give my arms and shins a pat of Rodin’s Olio Lusso Luxury Body Oil, which comes in a new lavender scent. Finally, at bedtime, I crack open an Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoule and spread it on my face. If I’m feeling extra-decadent, I’ll use a second one on my décolletage. I told you I didn’t skimp.
