Kerry Washington’s Top Three Skin Care Tips:
“I would say the three things that are most important for me are drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and I never go to bed with my makeup on — ever, ever, ever! And that's huge. I feel like there are a lot of makeup remover wipes out there, but the Neutrogena Makeup Removal Wipes are so thorough, and you can really trust them to take care of your skin. If you want to know what your skin is going to look like tomorrow, it really starts the night before, and then the day before that. So [it's important] to really make an investment in the long-term health and beauty of your skin. It’s about using products that are doing as little damage as possible.”1. “Drinking enough water…”- remember ladies, beauty begins from within. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day is not only great for your health, (which, by the way, reflects on your beauty just the same) but is essential for your skin. We always say that dry skin is a sin, but do remember that there is much more to moisturizing it than just slathering on some lotions and potions. Hydrate from within with drinking enough water everyday. 2. “Getting enough sleep…”- Even with the best concealer, the only way to get rid of dark circles and puffy eyes is to have enough sleep. After all, they do call it beauty sleep for a reason. But what about your hectic schedule, you may be wondering. The good news is that when it comes to sleep, it is a case of quality over quantity.

Too tired from a night out to do your nightly routine of washing up before going to bed. But is leaving your makeup on really that bad? The answer is yes. Why? Because makeup clogs your pores, which leads to the build up of sebum, which could then to lead to pimples. "I’m not one of those girls who works out every single day. I do think rest days are important. The body needs time to recover,"[/caption]
Kerry On Keeping Fit And Fab:
"I am a big Pilates girl because I love it. There is no better exercise to really get to know your body, plus it really changes your body. I started doing it when I was doing a play on Broadway. All of us were having back pains. Someone said, ‘You should try Pilates to get through the play.’
"It changed my relationship to my core and corrected my posture and the way I think about my movement."
