Olivia Palermo: I have a regular dermatologist

Olivia Palermo thinks people need to work harder to get to know their skin.

Former reality TV star Olivia Palermo has made regular dermatologist visits since she was 11.

The 29-year-old star may be known for her glowing skin, but it doesn't come easily. Olivia has made it her mission to learn everything she can about keeping her face healthily, and she suggests other women do the same.

"I do have really sensitive skin and I'm lucky to have a team of make-up artists and facialists who all know about my skin," she told Britain's InStyle magazine. "I have seen the same dermatologist, Dr Dennis Gross, since I was 11 years old and I use all his products. It's important to look after your skin and find out more about it. A trick that I've learned is to always put my own moisturiser on before I leave the house - that way, the make-up artist won't need to use a product I'm not used to on my skin."

Olivia is a jetsetter and so maintaining her skincare regime can be hard, as she's always in different places. She tends not to bother unpacking her beauty products when she's at home as it's easy to grab them and go when she has to get a flight. The star has also come up with other ways to maintain her schedule too, with exercise a key way she keeps herself feeling good.

"I get up at 5.30am every day to work out," she said. "It's tough at first, but you get used to waking up that early and it makes you feel great - you get a longer day and can be even more efficient. When I'm travelling, I always go to the gym in my hotel and do free weights. At home, I love Bikram yoga and FlyBarre, which uses resistance weights."
