My Five Beauty Obsessions: Kathryn Budig


At 29, Kathryn Budig is one of the youngest widely-renowned yogis on the scene.

She regularly teaches at YogaWorks, in Santa Monica, but she’s also taken up traveling around the globe, spreading her message of a challenging, playful practice.

Budig launched her first DVD, Aim True Yoga, with Gaiam this past year. And you may have seen her serious yoga tricks while modeling grippy Toesox.

We asked the fun-loving yogi what she reaches for to keep her skin healthy while on the go.

Here are the fresh-faced beauty’s five favorite picks of the season:

1. Pangea Organics French Rosemary With Sweet Orange Facial Toner ($26)
Pangea Organics is my all-time favorite line—totally eco-friendly, cruelty free, and delicious. I have this toner in full size for home and tiny for travel to use between cleansing and moisturizing—or anytime I need a pick-me-up. It’s awesome to have on a long plane ride, too. (Note: Budig is a brand ambassador for Pangea Organics.)

2. Lanolips 101 Ointment ($17.95)
This rad line from Australia makes the best lip balm ever. I bring this with me on flights when I always get dehydrated and come off the plane with happy, plump lips. I seriously can’t leave home without it.

3. Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes ($12)
I love mascara—but not how hard it is to get off. Josie Maran created great, eco-friendly, cruelty-free wipes that never irritate my skin and get me fresh-faced before I go to bed.

4. Korres Lip Butter in Quince ($17.95)
This is a great homeopathic-inspired line from Greece. I love their entire line. This lip balm feels like silk and this specific color “Quince” looks natural and great on everyone.

5. Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara ($22)
The closest thing I can get to glam lashes without using glue!
