Hoping to inspire women to adopt a life-long dedication to skin maintenance, Trump created Melania Caviar Complexe C6. We had a chance to chat with her about her foray into skin care and the secrets behind her own flawless complexion.
Real Beauty: What made you decide to launch this line?
Melania Trump: I want to empower women to take care of themselves. I researched for ten years with a team of chemists. Finally its here and Im really proud of how everything turned out. Its an anti-aging skin care line with caviar as the key ingredient, along with other oxygen boosters, proteins, antioxidants, and vitamins that nourish our skin.
RB: Why specifically did you create an anti-aging product?
MT: I wanted to bring my own passion for beauty to everyone, but especially to women who are considering going under the knife or using injections. I dont believe in it. It damages your muscles, nerves, and sometimes the results aren't great. The line is really about aging naturally and taking the time to take care of yourself.
RB: What is your secret to looking so youthful and radiant?
MT: I use my skin care line, it helps the skin cells turn over and boosts collagen. Other than that, every morning I make myself a healthy smoothie with a lot of vitaminsit gives me energy for almost the whole day. Im also very into sports. I love to play tennis on the weekends with my son Barron and my husband. I like to eat well and to take care of myself. When you look great, you feel great!
RB: Do you have any beauty tips or tricks that you swear by?
MT: Falling asleep with your makeup on can lead only to infections or clogged pores. Its not healthy at all. No matter how tired you are, you should always take your makeup off and then moisturize. When you sleep the skin relaxes and renews itself, as long as you use the right products.
RB: Who is your beauty inspiration?
MT: My mother. She always took care of herself and she showed me how to take care of myself from a very young age.
RB: What was the best piece of fashion or beauty advice she ever gave you?
MT: To wear whatever you like and whatever fits you well. You're the most important one, and when you take care of yourself, you can take care of others. Don't worry about what other people think, just do what makes you happy.
RB: Now that spring is here, is there a warm-weather trend that you're most looking forward to trying out?
MT: I like color for the spring, I love pastels. And of course white, Ive always loved white. I like to be dressed in all white, its very fresh and very clean.
RB: Do you have any summer beauty must-haves?
MT: I always put serum on in the morning, as well as sunblock. Sunblock is very important, but I dont have a sunblock in my skin care line. I think it works much better to use sunblock separately. Especially in the summer, its also important to not use too much foundation, so your skin can breathe.
