On boosting girl power
“I am on the Board of Step Up Women’s Network in Los Angeles and Cosmetic Executive Women in New York, both of which support an important topic to me--mentoring young girls and women. The former reaches girls in underserved, inner-city communities, the latter supports young women starting out in the beauty industry. It’s very rewarding to help someone find her way.”

On her one skin essential
“Working for Neutrogena has motivated me to dramatically increase my use of sunscreen. I wear Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunscreen [$13; drugstores] and Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Compact Powder Foundation [$12; drugstores].”

On taking a time-out
“I work a lot, so my guilty -pleasure is stopping by my local coffee shop instead of just rushing into the office. Then I enjoy my early-morning caffeine, walking the beach at sunrise.”

-As told to Nikki Ostasiewski
