Cliché: What are you top beauty/fashion routines?
Korrine Young: As far as beauty goes, I have a pretty rigid skin care routine. Let me preface this answer with 80% of my skincare products are AVEDA; we’re kind of married. Okay, in the morning I wash with Aveda Purifying Creme Cleanser and after rinsing with COLD water (this helps tighten the face), I tone with Aveda’s skin firming toning agent, followed by moisturizing with their Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme. At night I do the same routine, only instead of toning I exfoliate with Aveda’s super gentle daily exfoliant. Sometimes I will add a couple of drops of John Master’s Pomegranate Nourishing Oil to my moisturizer.
As far as a fashion routine, I catalogue my wardrobe. I am going to write a post about it soon, but for now I will give you a brief low down. Once every 2-3 months, I dig through my closet and pick out bottoms (skirts, jeans, slacks) to make outfits with using my Pinterest fashion board for inspiration. I make 5-10 outfits for each bottom and write each outfit down in my catalogue journal. This saves me so much time in the mornings and also saves me a lot of money because I am maximizing the use of each piece of clothing. When I started doing this, I was wearing clothes that I hadn’t touched in years. It really gives you a fresh perspective on your resources. I hope this makes sense. Like I said, look out for the post in the near future.
