Andy Baraghani, Writer and Recipe Developer

The author of The Cook You Want to Be shares his pared-down, instinctive beauty routine.

“People think I’m a fussy person,” Andy Baraghani writes in his just-published cookbook, The Cook You Want to Be. “And I am fussy about how my T-shirts fit, playlists for long car rides, and my skincare routine.”

” I love to give myself a good facial massage, especially around the brow bone. I try to emulate what my aesthetician at Rescue Spa does when I go in for a facial—always lifting and pulling upwards.”

“And masks. I have so many masks, I actually don’t even let my partner see the extent of it—I’ve played with a lot of different brands over the years, but I tend to go back to the Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant.”
