How important is skincare to you?
It's super important. My mom's a dermatologist in France, so I grew up with that emphasis. But I also feel like it's a French thing, in general, to do the best from the inside, then the rest is just a little bit of embellishment. In terms of routine, I never go to bed without removing my makeup with micellar water beforehand. In the morning, I use Indie Lee COQ-10 Toner because I feel like I need to freshen up my face from the night's sweat and so on. This does a really good job, and it feels refreshing. I have a little bit of a tendency toward acne, and this product has helped a lot with it, actually.
What are some of the best parts about impending motherhood?
When you're pregnant, you get a lot of clarity. I think that's most important. It really helps you to reprioritize things. In the city like New York, you constantly get distracted by new things to do, new places to try and new people to meet. Sometimes you can forget yourself a bit. I like the clarity being pregnant brings, which has gotten me to refocus on myself and what matters. And the transition to motherhood is very exciting, to care for your kids. What my mom taught me about beauty and mental health and what my dad taught me about cooking and culture are all things I can transfer to my child. That’s great.
