One of the most common reader questions that I get is on the topic of simplifying your skincare regimen. What do you REALLY need to use? How often? In what order? When? These are all completely valid questions, especially given the fact that beauty brands come out with dozens of new products every year. And, here’s a secret, a lot of the “new” products are really just the same formula with a new name and new product packaging! It’s true. So here, I break down exactly what you need: a simple skincare regimen with the fewest products possible. Of course, you can always add treatments (based on your specific concerns) into your regimen but this list is the bare necessities, and a few product recommendations. I’ve included high-end brands and drugstore brands, so you can decide where you want to splurge.

Chrissy Teigen is one of those people you truly want to be best friends with…or at least, I do. If you’re not already following her on Twitter, you should be, cause let me tell you- she is hilarious. And with that said, it was no surprise that we had literally the funniest interview ever and it was truly hard narrowing it down to only three questions!
Q: What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
A: Don’t be so worried…at 22 I felt so lost. What am I gonna do with my career? Am I gonna have a career? I never just stopped and took the moments in, so I would tell myself not to be so worried.
Q: What made you decide to partner with Gillette Venus?
A: They’re just such a wonderful company; honestly, it’s great to see a company being so interactive with women. I’m a girl’s girl. It’s cool to be with a brand that really appreciates and empowers women- I love it. We’ve partnered up with Step Up Women’s Network and we’ve done this thing called “Step Up and Step Out” and for every step taken on our blue carpet, Gillette Venus donated $1 to Step Up Women’s Network. It’s great seeing how quickly something good can be done, via social media, with just a hash tag (#StepUp).
Q: Speaking of social media (Chrissy’s tweets are infamous), what was the one tweet that everyone just freaked out over?
A: Oh, so many come to mind. I’ll say anything tweeting from award shows…some people have some hard-core fans. So never upset…the fans. (lots of laughter after this) To note, Chrissy is a self-proclaimed member of “the bey-hive,” which is apparently Beyonce fans.
Chrissy’s favorite products:
1. Venus and Olay Razor: “It smells like crème brule!”
2. Tatcha Original Aburatorigami face blotting papers: The model uses these when it’s hot and humid in New York City and mentioned that they have gold flakes in them.
