Beauty Tips & Tricks From Molly Sims
1. Always remove all of your makeup at the end of the day.
"Every night, I take all of my makeup off with Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water—it even removes eye makeup. I've been using this cleansing water for 20 years—it's perfect for anyone with sensitive skin. Sometimes I also apply a refreshing toner from Indie Lee—which is all natural, alcohol-free and balances pH levels of the skin."
2. Get a silk sleep mask.
"I have an awesome silk sleep mask I put on before falling asleep every night. The amino acids in 100% silk are good for your skin—plus it feels cozy."
3. Be sure your moisturizer contains sunscreen.
"I never leave the house without sunscreen on my face—and I try to wear a hat for extra protection. I usually mix super lightweight Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Daily Moisturizer together with my foundation. I love the texture of the lotion because it's not too heavy, contains SPF 15 and has Vitamin C, which naturally brightens skin."
4. Steer clear of HD loose powder.
"HD loose powder worn under the eyes is the devil. You always end up putting too much on and don't realize it will give you raccoon eyes—especially in pictures with a flash."
5. Use cream blush for instant glow.
"One of my favorite little tricks is to dab cream blush under the eyes—above your cheeks—and across the bridge of your nose. It's a quick beauty hack for glowy skin."
