Insider Skin Secrets

Former beauty editor Hewitt, based in NYC, creates fragrances and cosmetics for Anthropologie and has a passion for organic skincare. She's also perfected a customized regimen for her sensitive oily skin and rosacea.

CLEANSER: I use Cetaphil, $8, each morning—I've used a lot of fancy cleansers, but this is the best I've found for sensitive skin. I don't wash with soap and water at night, and this has revolutionized my complexion by not drying it out. Instead, I use Neutrogena Wipes, $8, to remove dirt, oil, and makeup.

EYE CARE: Instead of applying eye cream during the day, I use (1) Olay Total Effects Line & Dark Circle Minimizing Brush, $19, a hydrating liquid concealer. At night, I put organic Earth Tu Face Eye Repair Serum, $48, under my eyes, above my brows, and even on my laugh lines.

MAKEUP: Olay Total Effects CC Cream, $22, is the perfect blend of moisturizer, dark-spot minimizing ingredients, and a touch of color to even out my skin tone. To cover any redness around my nose and cheeks, I dust on (2) BareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer powder, $18.

FACE-SAVERS: The papaya enzymes in Lucas' PaPaw Ointment, $12, break down flaky dead skin and make it smooth and soft. I put it on my lips nightly. I also swear by Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil, $12, to treat the occasional pimple. Apply at night and the blemish is gone in the morning.

SERUM: Night cream suffocates my skin and makes me break out. Instead, I slather on Lift Lab Lift & Repair Treatment Serum, $145, which is hydrating but not greasy. It's ridiculously expensive but worth it.

EXFOLIATOR: Once or twice a week, I use the (3) Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, $55, which has anti-inflammatory pink clay and white willow bark extract and exfoliating pomegranate enzymes. I put it on in the shower and let the steam activate the enzymes.
