Ok, you must have stretch marks, right?
Well I did get stretch marks on my stomach with my first two, but that’s because I didn’t use Bio-Oil. With Kian, I used it along with my homemade scrubs on my belly throughout the pregnancy and I don’t have any new markings. I don’t know if this was becuase my stomach is already used to the stretching or if it was oils that did the trick! I also became really active after baby #2; I taught Body Pump at Goodlife, jogged occasionally, and did lots of weight training, power lifting, and boxing. Currently I do a lot of cross training, plyometrics, boxing, and spin class when I can.
We just pulled out your favorite skincare products (photo above), tell me about each one.
I use two Vichy products: one is a facial wash and the other is a cream. I like them because I have sensitive-combination skin. Both these products moisturize my skin however don’t leave it feeling oily or cause break out. The Cetaphil lotion is what I used prior to making the scrubs, when my heels get dry. Now I will use it when I run out of my scrub and don’t have time to make it. I also use this lotion on my baby when he has very slight small patches on eczema. It works! That “Lay it on Thick” is another thick moisturizing cream that I use on my hands before bed.
If you could trade dermatologists with any celebrity, who would it be?
Beyonce…but I want to be Beyonce, so I may be bias.
Favorite food? Generally I’m a healthy eater but the lamb burger at Five Napkin burger in NYC will always stay close to my heart.
Most overused word? I’m told I say “thank you” too much.
Favorite saying? Thank you! (LOL)
If you were stranded on a deserted island, which 3 skincare products must you have to survive?
