Skin Milk: Katie Schecter’s Approach To Beauty

My friend Katie Schecter is one of the lucky ones. She always shows up looking effortlessly put together and glowing no matter how many days spent on the road or how late of a night she’s pulled; and that’s because her beauty truly is effortless. Her routine isn’t much of a routine at all, either. She uses minimal products, rarely wears makeup, and attributes beauty to blazing confidence and disposition.

That said, there are a few products she does use, love, and name-drops for this week’s Skin Milk sesh, most of which can be found in the aisles of your local drugstore — talk about refreshing!
