THE PRO:  Anna De Souza

THE BACKGROUND:  On-Air Beauty and Lifestyle Expert


Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift
-This is a mainstay in Anna’s on-air prep arsenal.  The morning of a segment she concentrates the hyluaronic acid oxygenated formula around her eyes and massages in for three minutes to minimize the appearance of fine lines.  “It’s really incredible how well it works to plump up the skin almost instantly,” she adds.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua-This foundation is incredible for day-to-day.  It’s water-based and very fluid, but you get great payoff in coverage without all the oils that tend to build up, crease and settle into smile lines, etc.

Blue Lagoon Silica Mud Mask-This clear-ish mask turns white (just warning you so you don’t get a fright!) and it clears out sebum and pore-clogging dirt in just a few minutes.  Once you rinse off, it almost feels as if your face has been slathered with a silky primer.  No joke.  I also use this before going on air since it shrinks pores and makes make up application a breeze.

Panasonic nanoe Hair Dryer-I can categorize my hair life as follows.  Before the Panasonic nanoe and after the Panasonic nanoe,  I always thought a blow dryer was just a blow dryer… one or two days after starting to use this dryer, I seriously looked in my shower stall to remind myself what conditioner I was using, because I was having the best hair days in recent and not-so-recent history.  Then… I remembered.  Every time I have to resort to a hotel hair dryer, those days are just incredibly “hair sad”.

Proactiv Solution Refg. Mask-When I’m going through a particularly bad skinn moment, I go to bed with my face almost entirely covered in this sulfur mask.  It’s worth it-I wake up with minimized zits-or even none at all!
