I would describe my day to day to look as mostly a natural look. I don’t wear makeup every single day because I teach dance and also do a lot of yoga. As a professional model, when my agent sends me out I do wear make up, but even then I try for a clean and natural look. Thanks to my years of using Merlot products, I don’t usually have to hide anything on my skin. I am generally just going for a more polished, yet natural look with my makeup.
I wash my face at night with (1) Merlot Grape Seed Face Wash. I use (2) Mary Kay eye makeup remover to remove any eye liner or stubborn make up. I use my (3) Merlot Toner with cotton balls. My skin feels extra fresh and it seems to help minimize my pores. Then I use my (4) Merlot Grape Seed SPF Moisturizer. It’s really rich when it first goes on and then it feels light once I have applied it. My skin feels soothed and nourished. Before using Merlot products, I used to experience eczema flare-ups. But the Merlot products are so gentle I no longer struggle with eczema on my face.
My go-to product for eyes is Makeup Forever. Their eyeshadows are so beautiful and they last! The (5) golden stardust eyeshadow is my favorite. I have a couple of (6) Lancome lipsticks and I love them. My favorite color is called “Truly.” I also use a (7) Dior lip gloss called “Dior addict lip polish 003.” It feels SO good on my lips. It adds a little color and shine!
I do wear concealer. I use (8) Dermablend. I think it makes me look so much more awake. I naturally have dark circles under my eyes, but Dermablend covers them up so well for the ENTIRE day!
I drink a lot of water as well. Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon every morning is great for weight control and for your skin. I also use banana peels to whiten my teeth. I think it makes a difference!
Getting ready for the day makes me feel great and ready to go out and work toward my goals. Having healthy looking skin is a must in my industry. Using Merlot for so many years has given me the confidence to face each day with a positive attitude.

There are many reasons to want to improve your diet, quit smoking, and wear sunscreen. In addition to helping live a longer, healthier life, developing these healthy habits can have a big impact on your skin.
In the July/August issue of GCI (Global Cosmetic Industry) Magazine, Katerina Steventon explains that extrinsic aging – exposure to outside elements such as UV rays and smoking – strongly contributes to “deep and coarse wrinkles, mottled hyperpigmentation and reduced skin elasticity.” Smoking, in particular, reduces skin’s elastic fibers, making facial wrinkles appear deeper. The long-term harmful effects of smoking are well documented, and in the short-term, the habit is actively damaging your skin as well.
Steventon also points out that 80% of the effects of aging seen on facial skin, is due to sun exposure, over the course of one’s lifetime. Wearing sunscreen or a lotion with UV protection is the easiest way to fight against harmful UV rays.
Want to ward off wrinkles? Ditch the cigarettes and don’t forget the SPF!
Steventon also suggests utilizing antioxidants that offer environmental protection. Merlot’s Anti-Wrinkle Cream, with its elasticity-improving formula, 11 amino acids, and grape seed antioxidants, might just be the way to start.
And what about all the little thank-you gifts for the ladies that help you along the way? From planning showers and parties to helping with fittings, there are always people you need a little something for.
Over the past couple of years we’ve had people tell us that they’re including Merlot products — like Merlot Moisturizer or Merlot Eye Cream — in their wedding goodie bags, or as thank-yous for their bridal party members. Both of these products offer a bit of pampering to busy wedding guests.
After all, everyone wants their skin to look radiant in wedding photos!
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a hundred times: you are what you eat. We want our bodies to be super, and if there’s one food that being touted at the latest “superfood” it’s the leafy, vitamin-packed roughage kale.
Naturally high in antioxidants, kale may help guard against heart disease, with its high fiber content working to help lower cholesterol. Rich in Vitamin A (beta-carotene), kale can also help the workings of the immune system, and may even help boost brain functionality.
In the latest issue of New York Magazine, in an article about kale, Dr. Drew Ramsey, an assistant professor at Columbia University explains, “Your brain makes up 2 percent of your body weight, but it consumes 20 percent of everything you eat. By changing your food, you change genetic expression and actually change the way your brain functions.”
If you really are what you eat, don’t you want to be smart?
According to a new study by researchers from the University Hospitals Medical Center, presented at the International Investigative Dermatology Meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland, getting an inadequate amount of sleep is connected to accelerating skin aging.
According to the study’s lead scientist, Elma Baron, “Sleep deprived women show signs of premature skin aging and a decrease in their skin’s ability to recover after sun exposure.” [Read more about the findings.]
Keep your skin looking young and receiving quicker — make sure you get enough ZZZs.
When we’re in the sun for an extended period of time, age spots – darker brown or black spots – can begin to appear on our skin, often on our faces, hands, and arms. While these generally aren’t dangerous, they can often create a blotchy, aged appearance.
There are three Merlot products that can help counteract these effects, and help restore skin’s youthful glow.
Merlot Hand Cream Plus Sanitizer – Not only does this lotion help soften hands while protecting them from germs, the formula also fights against age spots, keeping hands looking young.
Merlot Anti-Wrinkle Cream – Containing 11 Amino Acids, this formula works to repair skin by stimulating its collagen production and building its firmness.
Merlot Moisturizer – Keep skin protected daily. Merlot Moisturizer absorbs into skin instantly to hydrate and help heal.
So, after a day on the beach, at the park, or working in the yard, show your skin some love with a little Merlot.
For us at Merlot Skin Care, utilizing red wine grapes for their antioxidant power has always been a part of our formula.
Every Merlot product is made with red grape seeds, harnessing their natural power to combat the signs of aging.
