MY FALL REGIMEN //
GUISE ETIQUETTE

November 5, 2016

Fall in LA obvs ain’t as extreme as fall in Montana or New York. However it does have it’s bi-polar weeks. Hot one day, cold af the next, the weather just can’t make up it’s mind which does quite a number on my skin. I tend to change my skin care lines throughout the seasons not only because your skin, which is made up of keratin like your hair and nails, builds a tolerance to the same products over time.

Guise Etiquette is my Fall and Winter answer for what my skin needs most rn. It’s paraben, chemical, sulfate, mineral oil, and synthetic dye free. The founder Ada Trinh wanted to handcraft a high quality grooming line in small batches using plant-based ingredients sourced from organic ingredients from organic urban farms across California, New Mexico, and Arizona. The producers are infused with minerals, oils and vitamins hand-selected by the team members of Guise Etiquette. Did I mention that the collection is cruelty free, chemical free and hypoallergenic? ILY Guise Etiquette.

Nº1 FACEWASH MINT X CUCUMBER
Made all natural with Cucumber and Mint to remove oil and dirt deep down. Great for sensitive skin and the Aloe Vera and Chamomile help to leave the face fresh af without that over-dried leathery look. This intoxicating elixir helps eliminate blackheads, reduce acne, tones skin, helps with redness and helps eliminate age spots. The anti-aging ingredients help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes.

Nº2 AFTERSHAVE COLLOIDAL SILVER X NEROLI

I’ve heard a lot about Colloidal Silver and all it’s benefits so I was so V excited when I saw that GE had combined it with Neroli Oil to help fight razor burn, bumps and minimize the look of scars and acne scars as well. The Colloidal Silver helps repair damaged skin and inflammation, regenerates skin cells after each shave, while the Neroli Oil balances skin’s moisture level.

Nº3 MOISTURIZER ASPEN BARK X ALOE VERA

This lightweight oil-free moisturizer is plant derived with Aloe Vera and Aspen Bark keeping skin silky smooth and hydrated throughout the day. The formula is so light, it’s designed to penetrate and quickly absorb into the man’s thicker skin so you’ve still got touchable skin without the high gloss and greasy residue.

You may or may not know that I am also a hairstylist here in Beverly Hills at hollywood hot spot Meche Salon. I specialize in cuts, extensions, straightening and styling. Come see me and let’s make love to your hair by booking an appointment here. I love working on set, editorial, film, music, movies, fashion…it’s all so exciting and every project brings a different team together. Collaboration is amazing and meeting new artists and talents are too, so it’s the perfect opportunity for art to happen. This editorial for Astonish Magazine featuring my close friend and actress Natalie Alyn Lind was so much fun to style. You may recognize this angel from ABC’s “The Goldberg’s” and FOX’s “Gotham” (She plays young Batman’s GF Silver St. Cloud <3). All the wardrobe is Madem Black and styled and designed by Jessica Huerta. Makeup by another amazingly talented friend of mine Ashley Gomila who is known for working with some of my favs Iggy Azalea and Banks. Ashley used Kevin Aucoin for all these looks and my go to product line for the hair was Oribe. #Oribe4ever. Seriously obsessed. Especially with their Dry Texture Spray. It will sex your hair up immediately and make any limp, boring freshly washed and dried hair come to life. And the scent was created by Givaudan who creates all the delicious scents you’ve smelled from Calvin Klein to Tom Ford. It’s like parfum for your hair and it’s divine. Photos by Rick Craft.
