Welcome to the Mylk Mood Blog! We can’t wait to share our favorite nontoxic + natural clean beauty tips, tricks & influencers. Today we are going to introduce you to one of our favorites…
We interviewed Olivia and loved learning about her her clean beauty guru skincare routine.
Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from? What brought you to Charleston?
I’m originally from Philadelphia, but moved to Charleston last summer. I work for Garden & Gun, where I do a little bit of everything: copy writing, social media, coordinating photo shoots. It’s truly my dream job.
There are so many things that made me fall in love with Charleston. The food, architecture, beaches—working in a creative field, it’s hard not to be inspired.

What are your favorite things to do in your free time?
At home, I love to cook. It’s very therapeutic for me! When the weather is nice, I love spending time outdoors with my English Bulldog, Teddy, or taking a walk on Sullivan’s Island.
What got you interested in clean beauty?
My interest in clean beauty started in college when I made some key diet and lifestyle changes. Clean beauty isn’t just what you put on your skin—I’m a firm believer that diet plays a large part in your physical appearance. It’s crazy what stress, a poor diet, and too much caffeine will do to your body! That being said, I truly believe that you need to treat yourself from time to time… like balancing a diet of green juice with a slice of pizza!
I apply the same 80/20 principle to my beauty routine. I try to use a majority of clean products, but I do have my few “dirty” indulgences (Glossier Boy Brow and Chanel Le Volume Mascara, to name a few). I think the biggest misconception people have about clean beauty is that you need to go all or nothing. Even a simple swap is a huge step forward!
P.S. Olivia also has a clean beauty blog where she shares her favorite lifestyle, fashion and beauty hacks called goodcleanglow.com
Who is your biggest celebrity clean beauty influencer?
Rose-Marie Swift of RMS Beauty taught me so much about the clean beauty movement. She truly lives and breathes this lifestyle.
I also love following Miranda Kerr, model and founder of Kora Organics. She’s another clean beauty and wellness advocate, which is reflected in her glowing complexion.
We know you model for RMS, which is a brand we carry in our studio– what are your favorite products from RMS?
I love RMS products because they’re so versatile and easy to use. I wear the “Un” Cover-Up almost every day. The Lip2Cheek is perfect for busy mornings—a dab on the cheeks and lips and you’re good to go. And the Beauty Oil gives you an ethereal glow, even if you’re running on little sleep.
What are your top 3 go to beauty products?
Describe a little bit about your favorite benefits from using Jade Rollers. Why do you love them? How long have you used one? Tips and tricks for using the Jade Rollers? Anything else special that people might want to know about Jade Rollers!
I love jade rolling! It might seem silly, but it’s totally legit. A huge short-term benefit of jade rolling is increased circulation, which helps to de-puff your eyes and promote lymphatic drainage. In the long run, a consistent jade rolling routine can help improve skin elasticity and even out your complexion. This is a huge step in preventing ageing!
PRO TIP: I keep mine in the fridge (trust me on this) and aim for 3-4 times a week. It’s extremely relaxing and helps oils and serums absorb into the skin.
As mentioned before Olivia has a blog that shares her favorite tips and tricks for a clean lifestyle. She wrote a blog post a while back sharing why she loves Jade Rollers and the benefits! We now carry mini jade rollers on our online Mylk Market, and in all studio locations, so treat yourself AND treat a friend to one of these ASAP!
