If you had to leave the house in five minutes, what are five staple beauty products you’d quickly apply or bring with you?
My eyelash curler, [the] L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara ($9), Merit's Flush Balm Cream Blush [in the] color Beverly Hills, ($30) and my YSL Volupté Shine Lipstick Balm ($43). I also don't go anywhere without the three oils that make up my [Homecourt] Cece scent.
If you had to choose just two Homecourt products to use for the rest of your life, which ones would they be and why?
The first Homecourt product [I would choose] is definitely the Room Deodorant we launched earlier this year. I love the way [it] fills a room with an amazing fragrance and at the same time it eliminates odors. I travel everywhere with it. My second item would be the surface cleaner. It's like putting a beautiful perfume on your counter, but it actually cleans it. It makes an everyday chore pleasurable. Homecourt is rooted in the philosophy that our homes are our sanctuaries.
What do you like to do in your own home to make it into a place of serenity?
I think candles are one of the easiest ways to elevate any space in your home. It can set a mood through the scent and visually.
How do you like to use Homecourt products in your daily rituals?
They're in every room of my home! [The] hand wash, hand cream, and room spray are in every bathroom and candles are in every bedroom. Then, in the kitchen, I have everything!
What initially inspired you to create Homecourt?
I’ve always been passionate about my home and the products in my home, but I got the idea to start Homecourt during the pandemic because of the increased use of cleaning products. I care about the way my home looks, so I wanted to design packaging that would look beautiful on any countertop. I also needed them to be safe for my family and pets and environmentally friendly. And just as important, I needed them to work and have a scent that I [wanted] to be surrounded by.
Do you have any self-care practices that help you keep the peace during stressful times in your life?
Every morning I put [my] Dermalogica Vitamin C serum ($95) on my face and I sit under a LightStim professional red light panel. I work out and lay on my HigherDose Infrared PEMF Go-Mat ($699). I also try to sit in a hot sauna and use a cold plunge every day that I am home.
Is there anything about your beauty or self-care routine that might surprise people?
I don’t know how to style my own hair. I don’t even know how to use a blow-dryer!
What is your unfiltered beauty philosophy in seven words or fewer?
Hydration, moisturizing, sleep, and exercise. Less is more!
