Many Miraval guests tell me that they simply don't have enough time to incorporate good skin care into their routine. But, there are so many quick and easy ways to improve your skin! Here is an easy 10-minute morning makeover for your skin. 

•  Exfoliate with a gentle scrub in the shower to slough off dead skin and reveal a fresh glow. Clarins has a great One-Step Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract.

•  Apply an eye cream to help soothe, calm, and reduce puffiness around the eye area. I recommend the Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Wrinkle Smoothing Cream, it has a great anti-aging effect!


As you may have heard, The Deborah Lippmann nail salon at Miraval is the first of its kind in the world. Deborah Lippmann is not only a go-to for A-list celebrity manicures but an innovator in the field of nail and cuticle health. The Deborah Lippmann nail products do not contain toluene, formaldehyde, camphor or DBP. Her products include natural ingredients that have inherent healing and moisturizing properties such as jojoba oil, aloe, and lavendar. Plus, her nail laquer colors are trend-setting and featured on multiple runways during Fashion Week. \

Simplifying your life is fundamentally about the willingness to make choices about where you put your attention and energy. Typically, when we feel overwhelmed and have the desire to simplify, it’s because we are attempting to do too much and have expectations that are not reasonable, which leads us to put  energy into distractions – activities that don’t support our true goals and intentions.

These ideas apply to all aspects of our life – personal and professional. Simplifying requires us to shift habits and expectations. To simplify we must make different choices and be willing to accept the ramifications of those choices when they are comfortable and when they are uncomfortable.

• Start your day with clean skin. I like to use a cleansing milk with my Clairsonic Pro in the morning to get a deep clean. The cleansing milk leaves my skin clean without feeling dry or stripped.

• Always use a toner. A toner is the second step in cleansing and it also balances out the pH level of your skin. For those with drier skin, I suggest using a spray toner. I use an Ionizing Vita Flower Mist by Red Flower; it leaves my skin refreshed.
