Dorinda Medley Shows Us Her Secret to Great Skin

Though she lives in the city that never sleeps, Dorinda Medley makes sure to get her beauty rest. The Real Housewives of New York City's resident aerobics queen takes self-care seriously, and tends to her complexion with a multi-step skincare routine that she performs each night.

Welcoming cameras into her spa-like bathroom, Dorinda walked viewers through her process. Grabbing for a box of Kleenex hand towels, the New York mom said, "I always use these disposable, clean, fresh towels. You can throw them away, and you don't get your makeup all over it."

Next, Dorinda reached for Charlotte Tilbury's Multi Miracle Glow cleansing balm. (She's always been a fan of this English brand.) "I make sure my face is clean," she said, applying the balm to her face in upward strokes. "The key to my skincare over the years: Always do everything up! Think up! We don't want our face to go down; we want our face to go up!" (Watch the video above to see her demo.)

To cleanse her eyes of makeup, Dorinda uses Bioderma's non-rinse cleansing water. After dunking a tissue in cold water and dabbing it on her face — the cold water "tightens," Dorinda explained — she moisturizes using Sisley Paris Black Rose Precious Face Oil.  (This is another skincare brand Dorinda's stood by over the years.) 

She uses her trademark upward strokes to apply the face oil, avoiding the eye area, and makes sure to apply the oil to her neck as well. "This is my secret!" Dorinda trilled.

She applies any excess oil onto her elbows, before gently tapping on her eye cream. "The skin is very sensitive around your eye, very, so don't be aggressive with it," she said. 

Finally, the New York 'Wife uses "good, old-fashioned Vaseline" on her lips. Then, it's off to bed. "I prefer to sleep on a nice silk pillow and don't sleep on your face; sleep on your back," Dorinda said, before bidding us goodnight. Watch the video above to take in her complete nighttime regime.
