Hydrate your skin and watch dark spots fade with Rodan +Fields

What’s the number one reason keeping you from going makeup free? I ask this question all the time to my dermatology patients. Even as a dermatology nurse and in all honesty, I have some problem areas that keep me reaching for my own makeup bag again and again. I also want that “I don’t even need makeup” complexion but my discoloration from sun damage and old acne scars is holding me back! Fine lines and wrinkles have also appeared over the years too, starting around the age of 28. They are amplified by my dry skin, which is always in need of hydration. To address these problem areas I described above, I started using Active Hydration Serum and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum from Rodan + FIelds. So, if you are on the same quest for flawless skin follow my journey over the last several weeks using these two serums from Rodan + Fields.

Here is my before picture of my skin prior to starting these two Rodan + Fields powerhouse products.

I have always had dry sensitive skin and it has always been more dry on my lateral cheeks. It can be caused by several factors including a dry climate, genetics, or inadequate hydration. You can also see in the picture above dark spots of sun damage on both cheeks, more on my left driving side than my right. On my chin, I have visible discoloration from old hormonal acne scars. These tend to leave dark purple lesions that take quite some time to fade on their own.

To quench my thirsty skin, I knew I needed a product that could provide deep hydration. So I started using Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum. It instantly boosts hydration levels in your skin by 200% while locking in moisture for all day hydration. The Active Hydration Serum uses the patented 3D3P Molecular Matrix that delivers a high level of Glycerin to prevent moisture loss and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid that deeply hydrates the skin.  It is a sheer lightweight formula that feels like a silky serum.  After using it for several weeks my skin feels more moisturized and looks more plump and balanced. I use it twice a day for my dry skin, applying it to my face after I cleanse. Here is a pro-tip, always keep your face damp after washing it, and then apply the Rodan + Fields Active Hydrating Serum to ensure max penetration. 

Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum

Since I started using, Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum I have seen visible improvement! This serum is designed to target visible signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles and overall skin luminosity. 

The serum is delivered in biodegradable single-use capsules to ensure formula stability, and made with proprietary Retinal-MD Technology, a form of Vitamin A that is more potent than Retinol yet gentle enough for daily use. The Retinal-MD Technology empowers your skin’s natural renewing process , thus diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. I use the Redefine Intensive Renewing Serum nightly. After washing my face and leaving it damp, I twist off the tail of the capsule, smooth the serum on my face, neck and chest (remember to avoid sensitive areas like around the eyes or corners of mouth) and then I follow it with a moisturizer.

Rodan + Fields Redefine Intensive Anti-Aging Serum

With any skincare routine you won’t see long lasting results unless you use them consistently. That is my number one tip to all of my patients and followers, consistency is key! You have to use Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum and REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum on a daily basis over several weeks to see visible results. I saw that my visible discoloration and dark spots faded, along with my fine lines and wrinkles.  My skin tone is more visibly even and in addition to that I feel like my skin has a more plumped and brighter glow. I even started going without my normal daily foundation and opting only for mascara and lip gloss. Rodan + Fields has a 60-day money back guarantee even with emptied or used bottles! So instead of continuing to reach for the makeup bag, try Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum and Redefine Intensive Renewing Serum to bring your skin back to life! 

2021: The Year Of You

2021: The Year Of You

The year to focus on yourself, and your health while enriching your inner beauty. As a dermatology nurse, I am always looking for the best skin treatments to help my patients put their best faces forward. What I have come to realize is health, beauty and the best version of ourselves starts from within. The foods we eat contain loads of beauty nutrients and can highly affect the way we feel and look. Here is a pro tip: embracing your natural beauty and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be easily achieved with just 28 almonds a day. 28 Almonds have 5g plant protein per serving and are an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin E and a good source of magnesium. We don’t skip out on our beauty products, so we shouldn’t skip out on nourishing our bodies to feel “Beauty Full” either!

What you eat is as important as the products that you put on your skin. Your diet could improve your skin health from the inside out, so a clear complexion begins with eating a healthful diet.

So when it comes to meal prepping and choosing healthy snacks, reach for a bag of Blue Diamond 

Whole Natural Almonds, a superfood with natural Vitamin E, biotin, and magnesium content that benefits healthy, hair, skin, nails and sleep. Who knew adding 28 almonds a day to your beauty routine could make such a great impact on your life?! I buy the 12 ounce bag of Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds at Target, which makes it easy to snack and work on my inner glow while I’m on the go!

Create The Perfect Family Activities With Spin Master Toys

It’s been the year of Zoom calls and distant learning online. Recently I have been looking for more ways to get the kids offline and to connect more as a family. If we have to stay home, we might as well make it fun! I thought I would share my partnership with Spin Master with you, as they are a one-stop shop for anything you need to create more entertainment at home! 


This is an amusing, witty, and highly entertaining guessing game that has been loads of fun during quarantine. Hedbanz is an easy to play question game of “What am I?” You ask  “yes” or “no” questions before time runs out to figure out if the cartoon card on your headband is an animal, food or object!  The Hedbanz categories are simple (animal, food or object), allowing everyone, even young children to join in on the family fun! We played with my niece and my daughter. They are 4 and 6 years old and they loved it! 

Also an added bonus, the Hedbanz game is EDUCATIONAL play for kids. While playing Hedbanz, kids will develop their deductive reasoning skills with the game’s simple question and answer method. Coming up with questions that will lead to answers, kids will also practice their critical thinking skills! 

Hedbanz game



The GO GLAM Nail Stamper makes it fun and easy to create custom manicures in minutes! Since we can’t go to salons, this brings the salon to you!  Just pop a pattern into the machine, paint your nails with the base coat and press to stamp! The GO GLAM Nail Stamper stamps patterns onto any size nail, so the whole family can enjoy a fun filled spa night! 


There are endless possibilities of activities to do with GUND stuffed animals. They offer a wide selection of plushies from animals, kids tv show characters and even magical creatures (ie. slothicorns, lamacorns, pandicorns and more). Great for kids of all ages, we played make believe with the Jumbo Chomper T-Rex with our 2 year old twins for hours, and redecorated the kid’s rooms with the Jumbo plushies for an updated modern look (we donated all the small stuffed animals that cause clutter, and went for look that was stylish and functional with GUND). They are huggable, cuddly and surface washable! 


Kinetic Sand is the original squeezable sand you can pull, shape, and mold! Get the fam together to create incredible sand art. Kinetic Sand sticks to itself and nothing else so there is endless fun without a mess to clean up! It comes in multiple colors and scents, with various playsets to choose from as well!

Lastly, Kinetic Sand Kalm Zen Box is the first Kinetic Sand item for adults. So when you do need a moment for yourself this helps you to unwind and provides a relaxing experience. With 2lbs of sand and 3 tools, you can immerse yourself in a soothing and mesmerizing sensory experience. Fidget, relax and unwind! Also, featuring a sleek design it looks great displayed as decor on coffee tables, desks or anywhere you display it!

It’s Your Birthday! Enjoy a Free Birthday Gift From Sephora

Birthdays…Another year around the sun…another year to celebrate your BAD self! I never understand when people don’t want to celebrate getting older. I like to look at it like this… yasss babe look at everything you have accomplished, and look at you go with your wise, old self. I believe in birthday months and take joy in all the perks from free workout classes, to cupcakes, and even a free teeth cleaning my dentist! Let’s be honest I really look forward to my free birthday gift from the Sephora Beauty Insider birthday program.

If you are a Sephora Beauty Insider member (trust me you should be) and it is your birthday month you get to choose a free, complimentary birthday gift! This month you can pick between the Kat Von D mini set, filled with line’s best selling items like her tattoo liner, setting powder, and high pigmented creme lipsticks or try the Drunk Elephant mini set that includes the Beste Jelly Cleanser and Protini Polypeptide cream.

If you are a VIB or Rouge member in the Sephora Beauty Insider program, you get even more perks! On top of the Kat Von D and Drunk Elephant mini sets you also have the choice of adding 250 bonus points to spend on anything you like from the Rewards Bazaar OR you can choose the surprise online-only mini set option. Sephora just revealed that its new surprise gift is a Jo Malone mini set (these online options are available only for a limited so run…don’t walk to Sephora)!

So naturally since I spend large amounts of time stalking beauty and skin care items at Sephora I am a VIB. So during March, my birthday month, I got to choose one item from these three mini sets: Kat Von D, Drunk Elephant, and Jo Malone, or the choice of receiving 250 bonus points.

I was thrilled about the Kat Von D mini set, because it has three items to try! I used the translucent setting powder to hold my makeup in place, gave myself a winged eye in under 3 minutes with the tattoo liner (which I should get a gold medal for), and completed my look the Lolita Studded Kiss creme lipstick. I had never used any Kat Von D products before and I loved the rich pigments and long lasting wear!

I’ve always heard about Drunk Elephant products from my dermatology patients at work. They are always a big hit due to the fact that their products never contain the “Suspicious 6”. Meaning all items are free of essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrances/dyes and SLS. The Beste Jelly Cleanser and Protini Polypeptide Cream left my skin feeling glowing and hydrated. If you have dry, sensitive skin you will love this mini set.

Lastly, I have always been a huge fan of Jo Malone perfume. This mini set came with the Peony & Blush Suede fragrance. It is perfect for spring time with its light and airy notes made of red apple, rose and jasmine. I am always really picky when it comes to perfumes, but this one was a hit.

Not a member of Sephora Beauty Insider program yet?? What are you waiting for!? Go enjoy some serious perks and pamper yourself during your birthday month! Sign up in store or online at Sephora.com/Rewards !


With the awards season coming to an end, the upcoming Academy Awards on Sunday will be a day filled with Old Hollywood style glitz and glamour. Celebrities will flock to the Oscars red carpet with the intention to dress to impress and I am here for it. I am also here for the women of Hollywood who use their voice to fight for equal pay, for the inclusion of more female and ethnic employment on film sets, and to support the survivors of sexual abuse, harassment, and assault. That just got deep quick…but hang in there it gets really cute in a minute.  We wanted to honor some of these courageous babes by recreating some of their most beautiful red carpet looks with our children.
So together 5 Moms took on the task of recreating iconic looks from the past Academy Awards with their kids. This goes beyond the usual twinning pics we all see all over Instagram because each look was chosen for a specific reason. Scroll down to see why!
1. JLO
“I never saw anything resemble my South Asian attire when I was growing up, so when JLo graced the Oscars red carpet in 2003 in this vintage Valentino, I felt a sense of familiarity and pride that my heritage was somehow being acknowledged through this sari-inspired gown.”- Ami Desai, Beauty & Lifestyle Expert and Mother of 2 
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
“I chose Gwyneth’s iconic pink Raplh Lauren dress in which she claimed the Oscar for her 1998 role in Shakespeare in Love. Not only did she look like a walking fairy tale, but she also speaks up for what she believes in, like equal pay. It’s important for me to teach my daughter the same values. Life is not always going to be inclusive, easy, or fair. I want my daughter to know that if she works hard she can achieve her dreams, Yet, as women we can stand in support of one another and cheer each other on to the finish line. Also what better way to life lessons than through fun and fashion.” Abigail Ochse, Founder of The Chic Mamas and Mother of 3
3. Halle Berry
“For me, the Oscars are defined by these emotional speeches, historic wins and iconic fashion moments. In 2002, Halle Berry hit all 3 and I’ll never forget that moment. I had to recreate it with my 3 year old daughter!” Orly Shani, DIY expert and Mother of 2
4. Angelina Jolie
“The oscars are able to capture glamour, talent and reward all in one night, and what an amazing message to send to my daughters. Focus on your dreams, bust your butt and be glamorous & classy while doing it!” –Pamelyn Rocco, Owner of Bashery & Co and Mother of 2
5. Jennifer Aniston
“Jennifer Aniston is such a role model and my all time favorite celebrity. From being the boss lady that she is to overcoming so much in her personal life, I truly admire how she handles herself with such grace. I think it’s important to not only teach our daughters, but our sons the importance of pursuing your dreams no matter what life throws at you.”
Mel Baltierrez, Founder of Mel Rod Style and Mother of 1
The Inspiration: Vanity Fair Hollywood Editions by Annie Leibovitz
When this vision came to mind, I immediately called Ami Desai… we threw it together in two weeks and it was worth every minute of research, recreating 5 looks for Moms and kiddos,  running around down town for fabric, pinning together make shift dresses,  and the bribing to get all the children to look at the camera! We pulled it off and I could not be more proud of the finished product.
A huge thank you to this amazing team:

3 No Cook, Healthy Recipes In Under 10 Minutes

We are well into 2019 and I’m keeping on track with my intentions for this year. One of them involves eating with intention rather than dieting or depriving myself of certain foods. I was turned onto this subject by a fellow blogger and love the concept it creates around the relationship we have with eating. It teaches you to eat with a balanced mindset and to view your food as a way to fuel your body and mind so that you are the healthiest, best version of yourself.

I partnered with Farmer John to bring you three simple, no cook recipes are that healthy lunch choices and ready in under 10 minutes! I usually find these quick recipes on Pinterest and then tweak them to add in my own ingredients and foods that my family will enjoy. I chose to use Farmer John Lunchmeat  since it is packed with protein and delicious flavor. You can substitute any of their lunch meats for the original ham that I used below, like their Smoked Ham or Black Forest Ham for a bigger flavor.

Farmer John products are available at local grocery stores including Smart & Final, Stater Brothers, Albertsons, Ralphs,  Northgate and my second home, Target. If you’re looking for a family-friendly weekend activity, join Farmer John on Sunday, February 17th at the 41st Annual L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run/Walk & Kiddie Run. It is an event held to promote health, fitness and cultural awareness in the greater Los Angeles community. Farmer John will be serving up their delicious new breakfast sausage links at the finish line. For more information and to register, visit Firecracker10k.org.

How I Keep My Babies on Track When We Travel…

Family holiday vacations can be full of unforgettable memories, but as we know traveling with the kiddos can be a real challenge. I try several things to ensure that the twins stay on schedule and have the same diet when we visit a new place.  They have especially sensitive stomachs and they usually don’t take well to overly preserved foods high in additives or sugar. So I pack the boys their Healthy Times organic mixed grain cereal wherever we go.

The cereal comes in in a convenient resealable pouch (which is also why I love it for traveling!)  and has the vitamins and minerals the twins need for brain development, strong bones and teeth, and a healthy immune system. Plus it’s dairy and soy free with all Non-GMO organic ingredients.

Also can we talk about the fact that Healthy Times is a legacy brand that was started by a mom in her kitchen back in 1980  who wanted to provide nutritious food for her children without refined sugars, preservatives or additives… can I get an AMEN! I love supporting women in business and companies that give back. Healthy Times not only commits to creating quality products, they also commit to supporting non-profit partners like Feed the Children. Feed the Children exists to defeat childhood hunger. It is one of the largest U.S.-based charities and serves those in need in the U.S. and in 10 countries around the world.

So the next time you are looking for  healthy, organic, natural foods for your kids… go to Healthy Times and help give back to others in need. They carry many different items from cereals, toddler formulas, teething biscuits, and cookies to natural bath and body care products for your littles. Happy Holidays and Happy Traveling!

The New Way To Shop With Trunk Club Clubhouse

Raise your hand if you live for sweater weather, pumpkin spice everything and the beginning of the holidays! My favorite season is almost upon us… Fall! One thing I always strive to have in my closet are transitional pieces that can carry me from summer to fall. I look at them like investments and true staple items for my wardrobe. Think dresses used for layering, cropped jackets, and booties. The problem is I don’t always have the time (ahem I have three children) to shop for them and call me old fashioned I actually enjoy being able to try on items before I purchase them!

You might have heard me talk about Trunk Club a few times before on the blog or social media channels. I started using their service over a year ago and it is amazing. If you’re not familiar, Trunk Club is a personal styling service for men and women, perfect if you don’t have much time to shop, or you are looking for help from a stylist. You can shop with Trunk Club in person at one of their six Clubhouses (Boston, Chicago, Dallas, DC, LA, and NYC). The layout and the decor of each club house is seriously to die for. You are offered a refreshment from the bar the minute you check in for your appointment and are given your own private fitting room. These are not your average fitting rooms and the attention to detail is impeccable. Seriously, you will want to move in… or hire their interior designer!



Prior to my appointment my stylist, Simone and I brainstormed on the transitional items I was looking for and then she pulled together several pieces for me. When I arrived there was a clothing rack full of the most beautiful clothes calling my name. I enjoyed a mimosa, while Simone curated outfits for me complete with bags and jewelry.


I often have a really hard time trying on clothes and I usually ponder over purchasing things. The reality is I buy things in the wrong sizes and impulsively purchase items I bring home only to wear once. My friends literally make fun of me for this! At Trunk Club, Simone found the perfect fit for me, showed me how to style items several different ways and even pulled clothes I normally wouldn’t pick out for myself. Going to the Trunk Club LA Clubhouse made me feel like an actual princess for a day! I left with new outfits I could wear now and during the colder weather as well. It was a full day of shopping success! Find a Trunk Club Clubhouse near you and experience the fun for yourself! You will thank me!


I’m aging and here is what I am doing about it!


One of the first questions I get as a dermatology nurse is when do I need to start caring from my skin and what treatments do you use??


My answer… it is never too early to work on your skin care game and we shouldn’t even begin talking about treatments until we get your every day skin care products in check! The truth is we start aging as early as our 20’s and your skin’s repair mechanisms actually start slowing down around age 25. So the point is we could all use a little help so that we look damn good through the decades…right? Since facts don’t lie what you are putting on your skin now will determine how it looks later on. So NOW is the time to invest in anti-aging treatments, but that doesn’t mean it has to break the bank!


I’ve partnered with La La Daisy, a site that brings you the products you love for a fraction of the cost. They carry a multitude of high end skin, hair and makeup products at no additional mark up. I’m talking all the same products you would find at Sephora, Ulta or the Dermstore for less! This is the perfect starting point for stocking your skin care product arsenal! Use code Thechicmamas for 15% off your order!

Now let’s get down to the crucial tid bits you want to know! Here are my tried and true skin care tips for anti-aging!


  1. Always wash your face morning and night, even in between if you do something like hit the gym. Going without washing your face leads to sweat, makeup, and oil clogging yoru pores. This leads to dilated pores and a dull appearance to your skin. Unless you need a medicated wash for acne, find a gentle cleanser.
  2. Eye creams are a must! The skin around the eye area often is one of the first places to show age. Right now I am loving this Elastiderm Eye Cream.
  3. Find a serum that helps accelerates cellular turnover and thus aid in anti-aging. Serums that contain retinol to regenerate the skin and vitamin C to help moisturize and fight free radicals. I always ensure my face is damp prior to adding serum and I add water to my fingers before pumping out the product.
  4. SPF… the skin care product of all skin care products. You will always need to apply sun screen every morning. I have so many patients that I am treating for sun spots all along the left side of their faces or their “driver’s side”. They never thought they needed sunscreen while driving in the car!! SPF should be your BFF.
  5. Find a great moisturizer and then boost it with some hyaluronic acid (as long as you are not acne prone). Hyaluronic acid is a big drink of water for your skin and will boost your moisturizer while protecting your skin’s barrier!
  6. Remember your hands, neck, and chest need love too! I apply most of my skin care products to all of these areas as well! They need SPF too!

Why you need to love your post partum body…

The internet is an amazing thing that allows you to connect with people and research the heck out of life. Yet it also has the ability to us a great disservice in regards to social pressure to keep up with what appears to be the norm. One of the most unrealistic messages I have seen lately is in regards to women and bouncing back to their pre-baby forms. After having my twins I actually had to… gasp…unfollow some accounts with hashtags like #prebabyweight or #mombodygoals. I know those women work hard for that amazing physique but women do not need the pressure to remove all traces that they just gave birth! So I’ve partnered with Icon Underwear to share some ways I am owning my Mom Bod, dealing with some post baby issues and still loving myself along the way.
1. If you follow me on Instagram than you know I have talked about all the joys that come with motherhood. We are magical unicorns that birth humans, and it is an experience you will never forget! You know what else you will never forget?  The first time you pee your pants when you laugh, sneeze or try to workout! The last bootcamp I was at I had to tell the instructor that I could not do one more burpee because II literally just peed my pants (don’t judge me…it happens!). I don’t let a little leakage deter me from living a healthy lifestyle post partum. I found Icon undies that provide absorbent, comfortable and cute underwear. They have several styles ranging from hi-waisted, hip huggers, bikini and thongs…ain’t no granny panties here. Use code ABBY 5 at Icon for $5 off your first pair.
2. Do you realize the stress your body endured for you to carry a baby or multiples for up to 9 months? Then your body went through the marathon that is childbirth! So obviously your body has changed! My twins are 7 months old and to this day I still wear maternity clothes. I have hips and a butt, and some pretty stretched out skin in places. I tell myself every morning that if I am strong enough to birth three kids… well I am officially a badass and my new body is beyond strong. It is possible to be strong and healthy while having curves! I suggest putting these mantras on post its and sticking it to your bathroom mirror or computer to remind yourself of how magical you are!
3. Pregnancy doesn’t only change your body, it can also cause some unexpected changes to your hair! Usually once your hormones balance out after  baby, there is a dip in estrogen which causes you to shed the hair your body held onto while you were pregnant. I am talking clumps of hair coming out people… and short randoms hair sticking up all over your head! I actually embraced this one and used it as me time! I got a sitter, and off to the salon I went for a cut and color. Even if you don’t have the time to swing that, go to your drugstore, buy a hair mask and sit in the bath having 5 minutes of alone time. Thus caring for your self and your hair. Don’t worry new hair growth is happening, it just takes a minute to catch up!
4. Your feet might swell during pregnancy, and stay bigger even after your delivery. I was a size 8 my entire life until I had children. My doctor relates this to the relaxing of ligaments during pregnancy that can cause your feet to spread. For some people the change is permanent, but not for everyone. I am now a proud size 9… and apparently it is here to stay. Silver lining, I sold some of my shoes to put towards new pairs that actually fit. After all who doesn’t like shoe shopping!
Remember to be kind to yourself. Remember that you created life from that gorgeous body! Remember that I am here to completely show you what real life Motherhood looks like! Remember to appreciate that extra curve, dimple and even when you pee on yourself (trust me it’s gonna happen)… after all look at what your body has given you… that precious little baby!
