Adrienne shares her quick-but-effective age-defying beauty routine that includes lymphatic drainage massaging, Olay’s new line of body products, long showers and a top knot, with Daily Mail.

‘For me, it’s taking that moment to take care of the skin on my body. Skin care has become my self care.’

‘I feel organized, I lay out my clothes from the night before and light a candle.’

‘One of my girlfriend’s just launched her skincare line, Republica, there’s a lip scrub that I am obsessed with.’

She’s also a fan of the Makeup Eraser facial cloth to remove stubborn eye makeup.

In addition to drinking lots of water (2 liters is her daily goal), discovering the new Olay Firming Body Lotion with collagen has also been the key to hydration for the daytime television host.

‘It keeps my skin super moisturized by locking in the moisture and even though it’s super hydrating, its a non-greasy formula which I love. 

‘I think it’s funny that we’ve all been talking about collagen on our faces for a few years but we’ve been neglecting our bodies.’ 

After using the Olay Body Lotion Collection (which combines niacinamide in its proprietary Vitamin B3 Complex with prestige skincare ingredients – collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C) Adrienne has seen a difference in her skin, especially the thigh area.

The products are formulated to hydrate and rejuvenate skin’s surface cells for visibly firmer, more radiant skin over time.

‘I recently started getting lymphatic drainage messages and I use the techniques that I’ve learned from that to put on my Olay body products. 

‘I am a lather girl and I concentrate on certain areas.

‘I will spend a good minute massaging the product into the back of my thighs, my butt area, getting it good on my calves, shoulders, arms and back of my arms; doing that same lymphatic message motions.’

She also massages her feet really well before slipping into a pair of fuzzy socks.  

'The first thing you're walking in with is how you present yourself. If you can just take a quick 15 min to be presentable, that sets your day off with a great start - you look good, you feel good'

‘The first thing you’re walking in with is how you present yourself. If you can just take a quick 15 min to be presentable, that sets your day off with a great start – you look good, you feel good’

Growing up with Latina women Adrienne has learned the advantage of always making an effort.  

‘The world doesn’t get to meet your personality, they meet that after,’ she said. 

‘The first thing you’re walking in with is how you present yourself. If you can just take a quick 15 min to be presentable, that sets your day off with a great start – you look good, you feel good!

Adrienne believes that just setting aside the time to take care of yourself is the best beauty trick. And if that doesn’t work, ‘swipe on a bright lipstick and snatch your hair up in a topknot – it is the instant facelift of all time!’
