My Full Skincare Routine | Body and Face | Jennifer L. Scott

8:22 AM 0 Comments


My skincare routine is quite simple. It consists of daily care rituals, intermingled with weekly, and monthly rituals. In today's video, I'm sharing my full skincare routine for face and body.



Skincare shouldn't be a complicated thing. I remember when I first started watching YouTube a decade ago, I loved to watch skincare tutorials. Unfortunately, I picked up some bad habits from those tutorials as I took what the YouTuber was saying as appropriate for me. As you watch my video today, please remember that we all have different skin types and skin concerns. My routine might not necessarily work for you. On the other hand, you might glean a life-changing tip that you can benefit from forever!



Let's start with the evening routine. I start off removing my makeup. I do this every evening. Even if I haven't worn makeup that day, I like to use a wipe to take off anything on my skin. My logic with this is that if you do not prep by removing the makeup, you are simply rubbing the day's makeup and debris further into your skin when you are at the cleansing step. I have traditionally used makeup remover wipes, the packages you can pick up from the drugstore (I like the Simple brand, as well as the Rooted brand from Grove). However, recently a viewer told me about this reusable makeup remover cloth. I was skeptical. How could a cloth remove mascara and a day's makeup with just water? But it works really well! Grove Collaborative customers, you can find a high quality makeup remover cloth there (that's what I'm using in today's video). I have also found makeup remover cloth pack on Amazon (I haven't tried these yet, they are less expensive). What a great, sustainable way to remove your makeup every day! Plus, ultimately it is a money saver.



Next, I use a natural cleanser with water and massage it into my face and neck. Three to four times a week, I will exfoliate. Lately, I have been using a konjac sponge, but I have also used exfoliating scrubs or serums. In the past, I have really loved using the Clarisonic, as you know I wrote about in Lessons from Madame Chic. After cleansing and exfoliating, I apply a light toner and then moisturize with an evening cream and lightly place an eye cream around my eyes.

Of course, you can accomplish this with any skincare line you choose that is right for you. In today's video I'm using Pellu's natural skincare system (the link sends you to a 50% off offer). I always return to Pellu. Like I mentioned in my past skincare review for Natural Home with Jennifer, the Pellu line is high-quality and high-performing, yet still natural. I love it!

Regarding exfoliation, the konjac sponge I use in the video is from Pellu. You can also find them on Amazon and Teami blends (yes, the tea!) has a tea-infused konjac sponge (use code JLS25 for 25% off your order of $39+) which is pretty neat.

Now, when I watched those skincare videos on YouTube all those years ago, I was led astray because the influencers I was watching were doing complicated morning and evening routines. I learned over the years that in the morning, all I need to do is splash warm water on my face and apply moisturizer. Of course, apply an SPF, if needed, and apply makeup if you plan to do that.



Let's talk about skincare for the body. On a regular basis, I like to dry brush my skin. This is the dry brush I use. When you dry brush, always move toward the heart. Here are the benefits of dry brushing: it exfoliates dry skin, increases blood circulation, promotes lymph flow and drainage, unclogs pores and stimulates the nervous system. (Information from the Cleveland Clinic).

I also moisturize my body on a daily basis. I like to use Bend Soap Co.'s all natural goat milk soaps (use code DC10 for 10% off order) or any other natural moisturizer. I also use natural deodorant. I mention the Sudsy Soapery deodorant

I also use this foot file, which is the best foot file ever! If you have dry skin on your heels, this will take care of it.



Once a week, I will apply a face mask. Some of my favorite masks are Epicuren, Honey Belle and Generation Clay (what I'm using in today's video). I am also interested in trying Teami's green tea mask (JLS25 for 25% off of $39+), which has great reviews. I can do a skincare review of that soon.

As for electronic devices, these are not necessary for an effective skincare routine. However, they do serve a function and can be useful if you are not able to get a professional facial. I have used the Clarisonic in the past and currently use the Nurysh Lyft's laser treatments for my skin.

Chic Assignment Check-in June 2019

6:21 AM 7 Comments


Thank you for your wonderful reaction to our latest Things Daily Connoisseurs Say video. Ben and I had so much fun filming it and laughing along with you!



Today, I am going to update you on my Chic Assignment findings for this month... To see the original Chic Assignment post for this month, click here.


Chic Assignment no. 1 Maurice Ravel's Boléro
I have found the mesmerizing and methodical beat of Maurice Ravel's Boléro to be a wonderful piece of music to accomplish things to. Here is a video of Valery Gergiev, conducing with a toothpick (yes, a toothpick!), and here is a video of the Boléro flash mob, which has 14 million views!


Chic Assignment no. 2 Shakespearean Sonnet
I chose the most famous sonnet to read to you this month... Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Sonnet 18:
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.



Chic Assignment no. 3 Is it al fresco? Or alfresco? What say you? Actually the Italians don't call it al fresco dining... al fresco means "in jail" now in Italian 😆

The phrase al fresco is borrowed from Italian for "in the cool [air]", although it is not in current use in that language to refer to dining outside. Instead, Italians use the phrases fuori ("outside", "outdoor") or all'aperto ("in the open [air]"). In Italian, the expression al fresco usually refers to spending time in jail.

Funny! This reminds me of about Lucia and her use of Italian in the Mapp and Lucia books.

Chic Assignment no. 4 Drink more water As someone who doesn't love drinking water, I have found fruit-infused water to be a delicious incentive to quench my thirst.



I have been using this pitcher and this stirring rod to create delicious and healthful fruit-infused water. I like combining various herb and fruit combinations such as strawberry mint, lemon verbena blackberry, and orange kiwi.

Have you ever tried fruit-infused water?

I would love to hear your updates on The Chic Assignment this month. Tag me on social media with #TheChicAssignment so others can join in. I hope you enjoy today's video.

Comment of the Week
On The Chic Assignment, Susanne writes, "With regard to drinking more water, I heard it said that it's easier to drink more if you have a water bottle with a straw, and I've found it to be true--for some reason, the straw makes it easier.

Thanks for another inspiring assignment, Jennifer!"


Hi Susanne, I can see how drinking with a straw could help with consuming more water. It's that comforting sip throughout the day that is key. I know, I like to drink iced lattes that way, so perhaps I can change out my caffeine for more water. Thank you for the tip!

Thank you for joining me for The Chic Assignment check-in. As always, I would love to hear your findings. Thank you and I will see you next time!

Things Daily Connoisseurs Say: Part DEUX

5:39 AM 11 Comments


Oh dear... I couldn't help myself! Today, I present to you another Things Daily Connoisseurs Say. This time we travel to the ballet, the airport, the shops, and deep into nature to see what happens in the mind of a Daily Connoisseur.



I think we can all agree that Ben is a very good sport for putting up with me!


What do Daily Connoisseurs say to their family at the dinner table?


What do Daily Connoisseurs do when they get stressed?


And is it too much to ask for five minutes alone for some fine reading and a cup of tea? Apparently!

Featured in today's video, my friend Alena Kate Pettitt's new book, English Etiquette.

As Daily Connoisseurs, it's important to laugh at ourselves. I hope today's video gives you a good laugh :)

Comment of the Week
Anonymous writes, "Hi Jennifer--
I work as a nurse in a hospital that was built in the 1930's. Some of the patient rooms have small closets inside--probably about 8 inches deep. There is a hook on the wall, as well as a shelf above, probably for a hat or small handbag. Each time I see one of these closets I think of you and smile. In those days, people hung their suit/dress inside. They did not have a lot of belongings, unlike today when patients bring duffel bags or suitcases with them.
Your 10 item wardrobe is such an inspiration--as you are. Many thanks! "



Hi Anon, Thank you! Your insights are so interesting. Yes, we can look to the past to realize that the ten-item wardrobe is not a radical invention... it's what most people have done in history. Thank you for reminding us of that.

I hope you enjoyed Things Daily Connoisseurs Say Part Deux :) I would love to know... which line resonated the most with you?

I'll see you soon for The Chic Assignment Check-In!

Get Ready with Me | Wedding Guest Edition

6:44 AM 4 Comments


In today's video, I invite you to get ready with me to attend a springtime wedding. I love dressing up for weddings and today I'm wearing my floral maxi dress from my core items.



Normally a wedding guest outfit will call for pulling from your extras (a fancy cocktail dress, or other special occasion dress) but I was able to dress up my core item floral maxi and make it look dressy and fashionable.


First, let's start with the makeup: Here is a list of all makeup I used in today's video.
barePro liquid foundation, bareMinerals under eye concealer, Finishing powder by A'DEL natural cosmetics, primer potion (for the eyelids), Osmosis eyeshadow in spice berry, A'DEL eyeliner pot, burgundy mascara (and primer), Osmosis blush, Osmosis highlighter (on top of the cheekbones), A'DEL lipstick in Deep and Osmosis lip gloss.



On my nails: Londontown Teatime (use code JenniferS for 25% off).



I flat ironed the frizzy parts of my hair with the n:p beautiful flat iron, and then used the curling iron to curl the ends.



I am wearing the floral maxi dress (also linking similar here, here and a budget option here), a tan pashmina, the Ferragamo pumps, and a clutch (linking similar here). The gemstone jewelry adds a dressy touch.

When you dress for a wedding, the goal is to look beautifully presentable to honor the occasion. One of the most frequently asked questions I receive about special occasions is, "What do I wear to a wedding in [insert location or time of year here]". If there isn't a specific dress code on the invitation, simply think about the venue, location, and time of year. A simple dress paired with a classy shawl, low heels, and a clutch (a hat, if you live in Europe) will do the trick. Just think of wearing a beautiful color that will stand out in pictures.

Some wonder if you can wear white or black to weddings. The rules have really changed, but I would still shy away from wearing white. Black is more acceptable, especially if it is a night wedding. Several guests wore black to the wedding I attended and they look beautiful as they dressed up their black dresses with lively jewelry, and shawls, etc.

These are my thoughts on wedding attire and I would love to hear yours below.

I hope you enjoyed today's video.

Comment of the Week
Edel M writes, "Your videos have inspired me to read books (Madame Chic Series/Mapp and Lucia/No 1 Female Detective Agency), listen to music, wear my apron and wear my good clothes (even around the house). I am inspired by your message and I look forward to trying the 10 core items wardrobe! Thank you. I needed to hear your message. I'm so glad to have found your channel."

Thank you, Edel! Welcome to the channel! I am thrilled that the books have made an impact on your life.

Thank you for watching today. I hope you have a lovely weekend and I will see you on Monday!

Husband and Wife Talk About STRESS | Ben and Jennifer Scott

6:48 AM 6 Comments


In part 3 of my stress series, I invite Ben on the channel to cap off our conversation about stress. We discuss stress from both a man and a woman's perspective. Ben, as usual, has some very insightful ideas to share and I hope you enjoy listening to him in today's video.



The statistics discussed in the video were taken from this Gallup poll.

The article lists the top two things to cause stress in one's life as children and work. Would you agree with that?

Would you say that stress for men and women is caused by different things? Is your significant other stressed out by the same things you are?

These are all interesting insights into the world of stress and we would love to hear from you in the comment section.

Ten-Item Wardrobe Burnout | 5 Tips

6:03 AM 7 Comments


Yesterday, we discussed how the Ten-Item Wardrobe can help with your shopping addiction. Today, we are going to discuss the ten-item wardrobe and burnout. Is it extreme minimalism? Is it sustainable?



Here are 5 tips to help you deal with ten-item wardrobe burnout:

Tip no. 1 It's OK to update your wardrobe when you experience a burnout. Burnouts normally occur as you approach the end of a season. You might feel tired of wearing the same items over and over and feel like doing some major shopping. Rather than going on a shopping spree, know that it's OK to update your wardrobe with key items. Just make sure your purchases are intentional and fit into your wardrobe. You might buy a beautiful summer blouse to wear to replace a heavier one you had in your spring wardrobe, for example.

Tip no. 2 Shop your other seasons. Since you store away your out-of-season clothes with the ten-item wardrobe, sometimes going through those clothes to find any ways to update your wardrobe (with a cardigan or a scarf, for example) can help with burnout. This is also especially handy if the weather changes and you are in need of clothes to adapt to the change in temperature.

Tip no. 3 Get creative with how you wear your outfits. Pair your core items with different sweaters, scarves, shoes, and jewelry to freshen up your outfits. You could also style your hair differently or do your makeup and nails in a new way to fix the burnout you're experiencing.

Tip no. 4 Plan for the upcoming season. Sometimes burnout is just restlessness. You can help this restlessness by planning for the upcoming season. Go through your stored clothing and assess what you will keep or donate and make a list of what you'll need to update your ten-item wardrobe going forward. Sometimes the "business" of these actions really help when we feel restless.

Tip no. 5 Rest in your decision to do the ten-item wardrobe and allow your discontent to pass through you. Let the discontent go and remind yourself why you're doing the ten-item wardrobe in the first place. Think about how much better your life is now that you are intentional about your wardrobe. You are saving money, you are looking presentable always, you are exhibiting your true style, plus so much more. Rest in the choices you have made with your intentional and minimal wardrobe.

For more on each of these tips, check out today's video.

Shelley R. writes, "Jennifer I don't even know where to begin- I remember finding your first book in Barnes and Noble a few years back and being so intrigued. I usually don't even pick up that type of book but I was charmed by the cover and by what I read when I opened it up. The concepts you talk about have changed all aspects of my life. You are my favorite to watch on YouTube and You've blessed my life in so many ways. Thank you for your tireless work. ❤"

Shelley, your comment meant so much to me. Thank you for taking the time to share what the Madame Chic books have done for you. I never tire of hearing these wonderful testimonies. Thank you!

Addicted to Shopping? The Ten-Item Wardrobe Can Help

5:45 AM 0 Comments


In today's video, I discuss shopping addiction in relation to the ten-item wardrobe.



Here's my confession: I used to shop way too much. I loved shopping. I would always be browsing the stores, buying clothes and accessories and placing them in my closet. I loved the rush of buying something new. My wardrobe was very full. After I studied abroad in Paris and observed the ten-item wardrobe in action, I knew that there was a different way to live, but I didn't take any action upon my arrival back in the States. Why? Because old habits die hard!

But a few years later something changed. I realized I was wasting a lot of money. I also realized I never wore a large percentage of my wardrobe and still felt like I had nothing to wear when I opened it up each morning (even though I had so many clothes). I reminisced about the chic ten-item wardrobes I admired in Paris and knew that that was the path I had to take to break free from the thrill-seeking I got from clothes shopping.

I hope you enjoy today's video, which shares how the ten-item wardrobe can help you break free from poor shopping habits.

Nancy writes, "About Shakespeare's sonnets, I don't have to read them - I have done that many times in undergrad and grad school. I know my favorite easily, 130. That is a description of real love. It's funny but so true. I love his sonnets and how they are structured (similar to some Psalms) and his use of language is really without compare. Genius! I listened to Bolero while doing some house work and I almost naturally marched to the beat. : ) Working on the water and dining out doors soon. I love these assignments! They are fun and bring joy. I'm so glad you started them."

Hi Nancy, thank you for updating us on The Chic Assignment! I find that Boléro is a great piece to play when you need to be productive because the beat is so motivating. I find myself marching to it too :)

Thank you for joining us today and I'll see you next time for part 2 of this video, dealing with Ten-Item Wardrobe Burn-out.

Regarding the kitchen renovation, Karen writes, "Love, love it!! It really is amazing what newly painted cabinet doors can do. Would you be willing to share the source for your door pulls/knobs? That's something that we would like to update in our kitchen. I'm never sure what's "in" and what's "out" with colors for hardware like that. :)"

Hi Karen, the brass knobs and pulls are Bremen 1 from Hardware Resources. Thank you!

I hope you enjoyed today's Natural Home with Jennifer. I'll see you on Monday for an all new video! Have a lovely weekend.
