What’s a grooming discovery you’re excited about?

We’ve been on a kick with exfoliation lately. Everything that we do is focused on how to make things effective even for the most sensitive skin. Certain kinds of chemicals for exfoliation are very effective at dislodging dirt and oil, decongesting the skin and really balancing it.

What product would you recommend everyone to try?

Our newest product, the third mask in our range, is meant for pretty much every skin type. It’s a light topical exfoliation of pineapple, papaya, orange, cranberry, pomegranate, lemon and pumpkin. It’s a chutney for your face. It’s quite hydrating, quite soothing. You can feel that it’s cooling on the skin. It’s meant to be an experiential product on every single level. Natural enzymes brighten, exfoliate and unclog pores.

What are your top tips for staying healthy?

Go to the gym. Eat well. Don’t smoke. Stay out of the sun. Wash your face every day, twice a day, with a gentle cleanser. Your skin is your largest organ, so what you put on it is really important, just like what you put in you. It’s a lifestyle choice. If you have a healthy overall lifestyle, it’s very beneficial.

Where do you go to relax?

Our weekend house in the Hudson Valley near New York. We have a proper vegetable and herb garden. We grow everything. Our first crop of radishes has just come in.

Who is Mr Greenberg?

He’s our Chinese pug. One of the guys who works at the Chelsea store takes care of him when we travel. He goes to the store every day, so it’s really fun for him. He is so happy there.
