Describe your style in three words or less: Obsessed with skincare.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without? Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer, EltaMD UV Daily SPF 40 Sheer Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen and Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning? I cleanse with Cetaphil, swipe on Renee Rouleau Revitalizing Ginseng Toner with a toning cloth and then apply a moisturizing sunscreen (above). After that I’ll figure out what I’m going to do with my hair—usually just leave it down and natural or twist it into a bun. Then I’ll do my makeup. It’s different everyday, but always mascara. Always. I often reach for Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Washable Mascara.
At night? Remove my makeup with Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes, cleanse with Cetaphil and my Clarisonic Mia, and swipe on toner (above). Then I apply a dark spot treatment—Kiehl’s, Clinique and Garnier make effective ones free of hydroquinone. Finally, finish with a moisturizer and eye cream.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good? A really great blowout.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received (or thought of yourself)? My mom has been dabbing on eye cream (constantly throughout the day) for nearly her entire life—and it shows! She’s completely Botox and filler free. I hope that my adoption of her dedicated eye cream habit will serve me well, too!

In this week’s Staffer Beauty Snoop, super-chic Fashion Intern Cindy Park shares the products and tips that keep her looking polished on the go:
Describe your beauty style in three words or less: Consistent and simple
What are the three beauty products you cant live without?:Neutrogena Make-up Removing Wipes, C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve and the Clarisonic Mia.
What’s your beauty routine in the morning?: I use my Clarisonic to cleanse, then sweep on Origins Purifying Tonic, apply Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Moisturizer and top it off with an Aveeno sunscreen.
Post-workout?: I wipe off sweat and grime with Shiseido Pureness Refreshing Cleansing Wipes.
What beauty product or treatment instantly makes you feel good?: Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: When the mask dries up and I peel it off, I feel like I’m taking off a layer of dull skin and am left with a cleaner, fresher face. I also love Bobbi Brown Creamy Lipcolor in Pale Plum. It gives me the perfect pop of color when I want to look more awake.
What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received? Wear sunscreen every single day. You won’t regret it!

We love some beauty products—like Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist—just because they make us feel pampered. We reach for this lavender and rosemary-scented facial spray when our skin feels parched or tired. It’s great for a quick afternoon pick-me-up and post-workout cooldown. The light spritz never fails to refresh, and a bottle lasts forever (it’s been sitting on our desk for more than a year, and only a quarter is gone!)

Gold medal-winning Olympic swimmer, TV host, and mom of two Summer Sanders is busy supporting Coppertone’s World’s Largest Swimming Lesson, but recently took the time to chat with FITNESS. Here’s what she had to say about swimming, sunscreen, and beauty must-haves:
-FITNESS: What made you want to get involved with Merck/Coppertone’s World’s Largest Swimming Lesson?
Summer Sanders: “As a mom of two little kids, swim and sun safety are a priority and the opportunity to share that info was the main reason. I’ve worn Coppertone Sport forever and it’s what I put on my kids everyday.”
-FITNESS: What do you love most about swimming?
SS: “Being outside and getting a chance to see my kids push their boundaries, have fun with friends, and enjoy the water. It makes me feel like a kid myself!”
-FITNESS: What are your top tips for fellow swimmers?
SS: “For a swim workout, choose the non-peak sun hours in the morning or evening. If you are playing in the pool, remember to always put on sunscreen and don’t forget your sensitive areas, feet, ears and scalp. I highly recommend checking out the Coppertone MyUVAlert app.”
-FITNESS: What’s your proudest fitness-related achievement? Why?
SS: “The New York Marathon in 2002 because I soaked up every ounce of energy from my fellow competitors and the thousands of people who came out to cheer us on.”
-FITNESS: What’s your best beauty advice for fellow swimmers?
SS: “Sunscreen! And moisturizer post-swim.”
-FITNESS: What beauty products can’t you live without?
SS: “Coppertone Sport sunscreen. I put it on under my makeup every day. My Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and Kiehl’s lip balm.”

In honor of Earth Day (but extending through the summer), 100 percent of the net proceeds from Kiehl’s Limited Edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque ($23) will benefit Waterkeeper Alliance, a charity dedicated to protecting Earth’s water sources. The tubs are decked out in gorgeous labels specially designed by the actors Chloë Sevigny and Michael C. Hall (we’re partial to Michael’s stained glass-esque artwork), and the mask itself contains white clay to purify, oat kernel flour to absorb oil, and aloe to soothe. Do a good deed, get great skin!

Many women would be offended if their beau gave them makeup for Valentine’s Day. I can just hear the mental dialogue: “Does he think I’m ugly?”, “Is he not attracted to me?”, “Have I let myself go?” However, I would personally love a little V-Day pick me up for my makeup bag. After all, isn’t Valentine’s the one day of the year a girl gets to be pampered and treated like a goddess? Here are the beauty buys that are making my heart go pitter-patter this Valentine’s season:
MAC Cosmetics consistently manages to put out stunning holiday collections—and their Tough Love line for Valentine’s Day is no exception. We’ve got it bad for the Lipstick in Girl About Town, above.
In the spirit of indulgence, we’re eager to get our hands on this adorable NARS Forever Yours Limited Edition Eye, Lip & Illuminator Set. The sweet little trio includes a new liquid highlighter, pink lip gloss and eye shadow pencil.
What’s Valentine’s Day with out a little seduction? Every girl needs a special scent to get the night going. On my wish list is rose-tinged Chloe Eau de Parfum Spray.
Nobody wants to be dry and scaly on V-Day. Kiss Me with Kiehl’s is my pick to ensure silky skin for the big night! The set includes the super-delicious, sweet-scented Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish.
In lieu of the candy hearts and chocolate covered what-have-you, I’m asking for a different kind of sugar this year. Butter London has a bold nail color foursome called I Want Candy that will make your heart skip a beat.

Cult classic Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion is decked out for the holidays, courtesy of famed contemporary artist Jeff Koons. The Kiehl’s Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps comes wrapped in the artist’s colorful, iconic Tulip Balloons print. Best of all, 100 percent of the net profits from each sale will be donated to the Koons Family Institute, a branch of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. A gift—for yourself or another—that truly gives back!
