Sydney’s Night-Time Skincare Routine






IMG_0301As the daughter of a dermatologist, I’ve been exposed to the beauty industry for as long as I can remember. I’ve learned about the importance of taking care of your skin and get facials on a monthly basis. As I’ve gotten older, some aspects of my skincare routine have changed, but others have remained the same. I find that nighttime is the best time of day to truly take care of your skin, so I thought I’d share my process.

First, I take my eye makeup off with Clinique’s gentle eye makeup remover, a product I live by and have been using since I first used eyeshadow. I then wash my face with my favorite Sadick Dermatology acne cleanser, which is super light and great for day-to-day use. Next, (and this is a fairly new step), I use my Clarisonic Mia in conjunction with a Clarisonic cleaner–I switch off between a deep pore and acne cleanser. My skin always feels so much better and cleaner afterwards, and I love seeing the resulting glow.  Lastly, I apply Clinique’s moisture surge intense moisturizer to keep my skin soft throughout the night–and I always make sure to add a good coat to my neck.

What’s your skincare routine?

Sydney Meets Petra Nemcova


Last Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting model, television host, author, and philanthropist, Petra Nemcova. The beautiful femme, both inside and out, fashioned a vibrant tangerine frock while making a personal appearance at Bloomingdales’ 59th Street location to celebrate the Happy Hearts and Clinique partnership.

Happy Hearts Fund is a non-profit foundation dedicated to rebuilding schools and restoring hope in the lives of children after natural disasters. To date, Happy Heart Fund has worked in 14 countries, including the US after Hurricane Katrina, and is currently active in Thailand, Indonesia, Chile, Peru, Mexico, and Haiti. They have rebuilt over 70 schools and benefited more than 40,000 children and 337,000 community members.


Nemcova is the founder and chair of the global charity, which she started after surviving the horrific Tsunami which devastated Thailand in 2004. In addition to giving the press and Bloomingdales customers a glimpse into the Happy Heart Fund story, she also introduced Clinique’s new Happy Heart Fragrance. She kindly signed my bottle, which now rests on my vanity topped with my collection of perfume. With each purchase, money will be donated to Petra’s charity. There’s also a Happy Heart T-shirt, available at Clinique.com for $16, and $5 from each sale will also benefit Happy Heart Fund.


So join Petra and Clinique to help bring happiness to children around the world, and treat yourself to a heart-filled treat along the way!
