You said you have redness. Do you have dry or sensitive skin?
I have dry skin. I have sensitive skin. I have rosacea. I have acne-prone skin. I have the whole gamut. Really what kind of problem you may have.
And the SPFO is obviously important.
Yes, the Olay moisturizers I use have SPF and I also use their retinol at night. If you use retinol, you need to be compatible with SPF. SPF has been my game changer. When I was little, my grandmother used to say, “Wear SPF” and I used to say, “Oh, Grandma. You just say it because everyone always says it.” I remember him saying, “Christy Brinkley always has to wear SPF,” and I was, okay … but now that I’m older, I understand. I have so much sensitive skin that I literally wear SPF inside my house because we have a ton of windows.
What can you do to reduce stress?
To be completely honest with you, therapy. It’s not like I can just sit by the candle and be good. For me, therapy is really something that helps me reduce stress because I can separate everything by putting it on the table and then it can be, All right, gentleman. I feel good about that. I took it off my chest. I can read a little deeper. And that, again, is my “I” time. This is very important for me, especially being a new mom and navigating this new me. I hated therapy. I was like, I don’t want to cry. I don’t want to do all this. And now I want to. I want to get it all out, you know?
I’m just with you. I started therapy for the first time in years. And I was, oh my god, I can’t believe I’ve been without it for so long.

What about makeup? Do you have very few these days?
I love products from Saie. Lenny [Crowell], Who made it, a girlfriend of mine. But they are minimal and kind of dewy and beautiful. I Love Rare Beauty Perfect Stroke Universal Volumeizing Mascara ($ 20). I think it’s really nice – something that’s easy and fast again. My days are now much different than four months ago, pre-baby. I spend a lot of time at home and work from home and I don’t really need a full face. So I’m really leaning towards my skincare more than anything else, but when I want that little omph or when I do zoom meetings, I go beyond everything. I like brand merit. Blush their flush left ($ 28) So yummy and creamy and fabulous. They also have something called The Minimalist ($ 38), which A multitasking complex stick that is really nice. And their shade is slick Tinted lip oil ($ 24). I can throw in a bag and go, I’m stunned. But don’t get me wrong — I’ll tell you what, if I have time for it Complete Face
