Olivia Palermo Shares Her Sensitive Skincare Secrets


Olivia Palermo struggles to maintain her sensitive skin – but she has learned a few tricks to deal with the problem. She swears by always seeing her dermatologist who knows her really well and is already aware of her skin type so he can make her custom products and always makes sure her skin is taken care of. She has also learnt to moisturise before having her makeup done by a professional:

“I do have really sensitive skin and I’m lucky to have a team of make-up artists and facialists who all know about my skin. I have seen the same dermatologist, Dr Dennis Gross, since I was 11 years old and I use all his products. It’s important to look after your skin and find out more about it. A trick that I’ve learned is to always put my own moisturiser on before I leave the house – that way, the make-up artist won’t need to use a product I’m not used to on my skin.”

When it comes to working out, Olivia says she gets up very early in the morning in order to stay fit and get the most out of her day. She often hits the gym as early at 5.30am and loves a mix of different exercises including yoga and weights:

“I get up at 5.30am every day to work out. It’s tough at first, but you get used to waking up that early and it makes you feel great – you get a longer day and can be even more efficient. When I’m travelling, I always go to the gym in my hotel and do free weights. At home, I love Bikram yoga and FlyBarre, which uses resistance weights.”
