The wife of Bulls legend Scottie Pippen — and Kim Kardashian gal pal — lets us in on her day-to-day health and beauty routine
I start my mornings with a green juice or protein shake to kick-start my metabolism. Between meals, I’ll munch on my kids’ snacks: fruit mixes, pretzels or gluten-free granola. Lunch is grilled ginger mahimahi over brown rice and a side of a mixed veggies. I let the kids [including daughter Sophia, at left] decide on dinner by giving them healthy options. Their favorites are grilled turkey sliders, three-layer cottage cheese lasagna and homemade gluten-free pizza. Chocolate is one of my main — and many — weaknesses. On my cheat days, I like to indulge by pairing my chocolate with a glass (or two) of red wine.
Working out is one of the few times I get some ‘me’ time. I start with a glass of Isotonix OPC-3 [starting at $30.95] and Prime joint support formula [starting at $66.14; both available at Amazon.com/health] right before my fitness fix in the morning. My workouts are broken up into categories based on muscle group. I go to the gym five times a week when my schedule permits. My favorite workouts? Dumbbell lunges for glutes; side and floor planks for the core; and pole dancing classes for strength and resistance.
< SKIN CARE + MAKEUP
My at-home honey face mask recipe — 1 teaspoon mashed avocado, 1 teaspoon plain whole-milk yogurt, 1 teaspoon raw honey; apply 1-2 times weekly — leaves my skin supple, hydrated and rejuvenated. I’m a total lipstick and gloss gal, and am currently having tons of fun with the Motives spring palette. The Pucker Up Lip Plumper in Enchanted and Ultra Matte lipstick in Erotic [$18.95 each; Motivescosmetics.com] are my go-tos. I’ve perfected the two-minute face: tinted moisturizer (I use Laura Mercier [$44; Shop.nordstrom.com]), lip gloss, mascara.
The Agadir Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner [starting at $10.59; Target.com] are my must-haves. [Pippen is a spokesperson for the brand.] The entire line is sulfate- and paraben-free and very gentle on color-treated hair. I’m all for a blowout, but love a high ponytail or fishtail braid for a girls’ night out.
