Makeup Artist Bobbi Brown shares an insight of her daily skin care & make-up routine in her interview with Women Fitness “I’m 63-years-old and I keep my daily skin care routine very simple.

At night, I wash my face with either coconut oil or a natural cleanser.” She believes that following a regular wellness routine of drinking lots of water, eating well and incorporating good fats into your diet throughout the day makes a huge difference in the health of your skin.
