How ELLE’s Beauty Editor Gets Ready for the Day

Considering her title, it likely comes as no surprise that taking care of her skin—from head to toe—is the crux of ELLE beauty editor Margaux Anbouba’s morning routine. After hitting the snooze button and relaxing with her fluffy cat Fondue in bed, she starts her AM skincare routine. To combat morning puffiness, she uses a luxe face oil to give herself a lymphatic drainage facial massage.

Her skincare regimen doesn’t stop at the face. One of her go-to body-care products is the Dove Ultimate Antiperspirant in Peony and Rosewater. The water-based stick contains glycerin to help hydrate and improve the texture of underarms. The innovative formula replenishes the sensitive area with lasting moisture, while providing 48 hours of sweat and odor protection. Margaux loves how soft it makes the skin under her arms feel, as well as the long-wearing floral scent that she calls “amazing.

Once her skin is nourished and protected, Margaux streams a ballet class for another act of self-care.

Finally, it’s time to get dressed for a day at the office. Though beauty is her beat, Margaux knows how to put together a look. Her closet is full of vintage pieces, which makes getting ready in the morning feel like a fun ritual.

Watch Margaux take ELLE through her full routine on a recent morning in the video here. She chronicles her a.m. from the moment her alarm goes off to the second she steps into the office elevators—and all the self-care moments in between.
