My Beauty Routine
My beauty routine consists of wash/tone/moisturizer twice a day, exfoliate twice a week, and a La Mer Hydrating Mask twice a month. I do a Brazilian blow-out every six months and try to get a facial once a month. I use SPF everyday, drink lots of water and do my best to stay away from refined sugar.

-Favorite healthy dish
Avocado slices over sprouted grain bread with lemon and a dash of salt and pepper.

I adore Luba at Ma Maison de Beaute in Los Angeles for her “less is more” philosophy.

-Fitness routine
I do Hatha Yoga 3 days a week with a personal yoga instructor. I find that the combination of stretching, meditating and aerobics creates a wonderful balance between mind and body.

-Skin/Body treatments
My favorites treatments are the salt body scrubs at the Librisa Spa at the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, Thai Massages at Aiyasha Spa in Munich, and for facials, I love Anne Semonin in Paris.
