THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF KEEPING SKIN HEALTY | Anastasia Soare’s AM/PM Routine

Describing Anastasia Soare as an eyebrow expert is something of an understatement – as the founder of Anastasia Beverly Hills, she’s sculpted some of the best brows around the world. This is what makes the LA-based beauty guru tick…

AM

I wake up every morning at 7AM…

…and reach for my phone to check Instagram. I don’t go into the office until 11:30, so I can work out, go through emails, make calls and organize my thoughts for the day. I also enjoy taking my time to get dressed and do my hair and makeup, as I have to be camera-ready on a day-to-day basis.

My coffee is bulletproof…

…I added one teaspoon of MCT oil to my morning express. I’m also big on supplements and take vitamin D3, Omega 3, and 6 in the morning, MK-7 (aka vitamin K2, which is good for bone health) before lunch, sometimes L-Arginine (an amino acid) during the day, and ashwagandha root before bed.

I meditate in the morning…

…listening to soft jazz such as Miles Davis and looking at the hillside view from my family-room window. I reflect on the blessings of being healthy, being capable of working 18 hours a day doing what I love, and making women feel beautiful and inspired. What else do I need to be energized and start an amazing day.

My skin is very dry…

…and I’m obsessed with layering the entire range of La Mer skincare, which really helps to keep moisture locked in. I also use Molton Brwon Body Wash and Kai Body Lotion all over every morning.

I’m trying to keep to a keto diet…

…I don’t typically eat in the early morning, but one I get to work  I’ll have a boiled egg and then something light and lean for lunch – chicken, salmon or salad.

PM

I have high levels of energy…

…just loving what I do energizes me. I think I would actually be more drained if I didn’t do anything. If I were kept in the house without something to pursue. I think I would die – like a plant without water.

Taking off my makeup is a must…

…I use Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil to take the day off. After my shower, I use the Anastasia Bevery Hills Hydrating Face Oil. I’ll alternate between the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum and the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream and Eye Serum. I use La Mer at night as well.

I’ll do a mask if I have time…

…I’m often getting home at 11:30PM, so it’s just not happening then, but on weekends I’ll usually throw one on. Currently, I like the oh K! Gold Dust Hydrogel Mask.

My journal is…

…my appointment book on my phone. I keep my phone on charge on my bedside table – it sounds like it would disrupt my night-time routine, but I don’t have a problem falling asleep: I’am always tired and an usually out before my head even hits the pillow.
