Whether you are a Drug Store Diva or shop at SAKS, there are products for your skin type and price point.


First, we must remember to take our makeup off.  We all do it, but its horrible for our skin-falling asleep before we take our makeup off- our skin hates it and so do our pillows.

1. You must cleanse, tone and moisturize your face and neck daily.

Just like we all hate doing cardio, our skin hates it when we don’t take care of it.  Being our biggest organ, it demands our attention.  So many products available do double, triple duty and as busy New Yorkers we have NO time for 18 different products. Follow these quick and simple tips for perfect summer skin.
