V ES Jurlique Herbal Re­cov­ery Ad­vance Serum, RM297 Shi­seido Fu­ture LX Ul­ti­mate Re­gen­er­at­ing Serum, RM850 skim milk through­out the day.” Lunch: be­cause there are al­ways 20 mil­lion things hap­pen­ing and I don’t have time. Some­times I or­der in tomato soup or a kale salad from Bread, but it’s usu­ally Ja­panese take­out from Mottsu: a bento box with sal­mon teriyaki, sashimi, and miso soup. If I want to get out, I’ll walk to Or­ganic Av­enue for their Gaz­pa­cho Verde soup.” Din­ner: “This is when I tend to eat the most be­cause I can re­lax at home with fam­ily. My hus­band makes won­der­ful English shep­herd’s pie, Moroc­canstyle chicken with harissa, and a green bean salad with ba­con, goat cheese, tomato, and onions. Once a week my hus­band and I go out for date night to places like Oax­aca for fish ta­cos or Nightin­gale 9 for Viet­namese green pa­paya with dried beef and the chicken and rice bowl.” Splurges: “I grew up in Eng­land, so I love English-style potato chips and Cad­bury Dairy Milk Choco­late bars.” “I’ll walk to work, which takes an hour, or go to the YMCA in Brook­lyn to swim, do yoga, or go on the el­lip­ti­cal for 40 min­utes. Some days I’ll take a Pi­lates class at the stu­dio in my of­fice build­ing. On week­ends I ride my bike to Brook­lyn Bridge Park for an hour.” “I have been get­ting some acupunc­ture to re­lieve stress for 12 years, and last week I had the nee­dles placed in my face for the first time. They go di­rectly into the frown lines to stim­u­late col­la­gen growth. I al­ready feel like I look less tired. I ex­fo­li­ate daily with my Clar­isonic brush and Neutrogena Vis­i­bly Even Foam­ing Cleanser or Dr. Hauschka Cleans­ing Milk. In the morn­ing I use Shi­seido Fu­ture So­lu­tion LX Ul­ti­mate Re­gen­er­at­ing Serum as well as Eye and Lip Con­tour Re­gen­er­at­ing Cream, and at night, Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Re­mover or La Mer Cleans­ing Oil. I’m not good about re­mem­ber­ing to put on night cream.” “I don’t wear much ex­cept for Nars con­cealer to hide dark cir­cles. I rarely ap­ply foun­da­tion ex­cept for events, and then I use one from MAC. For evening I like a red lip or a smokey eye. Black eye­liner is too harsh; I pre­fer navy, grey, and brown shad­ows and lin­ers from Nars, Shi­seido, and Yves Saint Lau­rent. Man­i­cures are only for spe­cial oc­ca­sions, but pedi­cures I love year-round, in navy, taupe, white, or fuch­sia from Deb­o­rah Lipp­mann.” “I have so much thick, wavy hair that I get lay­ers and an un­der­cut to re­duce vol­ume. Now it’s just cut very short. I see hairstylist Sera Sloane at her pri­vate, in­vite-only stu­dio in TriBeCa. My sham­poo and con­di­tioner are from Avalon Or­gan­ics. After wash­ing I ap­ply Amika Oil Treat­ment to tame frizz and add shine. Usu­ally I let it air-dry, then tie it in a low bun or a top­knot. If I want straight hair, I’ll use my flat iron, prob­a­bly twice a month. I only colour my roots to hide any grey.” “I mois­turise with Cau­dalíe Divine Oil and prod­ucts from Jurlique and Avalon Or­gan­ics. Once a month I visit 119 Smith Street Spa for a mas­sage, and in the win­ter I re­lax with Dr. Hauschka lavender bath oil. My fra­grances change with the sea­son: Byredo Oud Im­mor­tel in the win­ter and Nar­ciso Ro­driguez Essence Eau de Musc in the sum­mer.”
