4. What is your easy thing to take care of your skin or take off makeup?
Teresa: An easy take on skin is to eat the right foods. The purer the better. What you put into you body reflects to your skin. My skin care lines are very cheap and very simple.I wash my face with Dessert essence tea tree oil( I have been using it for over 10 years) . Then I spray my face with pure Rose water from Heritage.( Been using rose oil for 16 years). My moisturizers and serum’s are the only things that I switch up but it has to be natural preferably organic . I love organic Argan oil for my face at night. For my body I use pure coconut oil or rose oil . I take my make up off with Rose water.
5. Favorite memory of a photo shoot? My favorite memories of photo shoots are always the one’s shooting in a tropical Island and feeling like I am on a vacation rather than at work. Eating fresh local foods and drinking lots of coconut water. I have always been the one to request coconuts whenever I am working in a tropical place.
