bbIn our new online series, Baltimore Beauty Minute, we’re bringing you skincare secrets and makeup tips from Baltimore’s most STYLE-ish women. For our inaugural post, our Editor-in-Chief Betsy Boyd spills on looking well-rested…even with twin 2-year-olds in tow.


A.M.: “I’m pretty busy because of the twins, so I don’t have a lot of time. But I wash my face with Neutrogena cream cleanser every day, then put on Melamin by Zein Obagi ($66), a cream that smooths and lightens my complexion, followed by Obagi’s Daily Power Defense moisturizer ($150). I finish things off with Cetaphil moisturizer with 30 SPF sunscreen ($14).”

P.M.: “I wash with Neutrogena’s Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser ($8), then apply Obagi Melamix ($64) mixed with prescription Tretinol three times a week. On the other nights, I use Clinique Ultra-Surge Moisturizer ($39).
