Los Angeles is known for being perpetually sunny and warm. It's also a city where I hardly get enough sleep because of my hectic schedule. Because of this, I'm bringing along some key grooming essentials that will keep my face protected from the sun and from looking too tired. Below are my top five grooming essential for Los Angeles.
Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash
This face wash is formulated with caffeine, vitamins and invigorating citrus extracts that awaken the skin. I tend to find myself running around LA to see as many family and friends as I can which translates to long nights and early mornings. Since I don't get my full eight hours of sleep I need a face wash that gets rid of my dull, tired-looking skin that's both gentle and fresh.

Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Since I know I'll be burning the candles at both ends I need something to combat my haggard-looking skin. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate does just that. Full of distilled botanicals, this facial serum replenishes the moisture in my skin overnight to restore the appearance of my skin by morning.

Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30
The sun in LA is always shining down. If I know I'm going to be in the sun an extended amount of time then I make sure to use my facial moisturizer with SPF 30. It's incredibly light weight and easily absorbed into the skin. The broad spectrum SPF 30 protects against sun damage which can lead to premature ageing. I get to keep my face nurtured and soft while protecting it from the sun's rays.
