Jonelle Alert Skin Care Routine & Tips
My name is Jonelle Alert, a last name you can’t forget at that haha. I’m 27 and I was born in a place in South America named Guyana. I moved to an island called Antigua at the age of 4 where I grew up and it has 365 beaches total, so I’m quite the island girl. I started modeling there locally but wanted to expand my career. More so I moved to New York at 21 got signed to an agency and have been modeling model full-time ever since. I’m an only child so I’m very family oriented. I love the beauty in sunsets as I see it as not only as an end but a new beginning.

What Products And Tools Do You Include in Your Skin Care Routine?
I currently have a FOREO Luna 3 for combination skin that I use. It’s made out of silicone, and is quick drying and resistant to bacteria build up. I love that it works to remove any makeup, dirt and build up on the face and the best part is that it has a timer for each section of the face so that each part of my face is equally cleansed.
What Is You Hero Product or Tool?
My hero product would have to be the Tatcha Deep Cleanse. I would say it’s the holy grail of cleansers because it keeps my oily-acne prone t zone under control. I use it everyday because it’s super gentle on the skin, exfoliates, and turns over dead skin cells and purify any decongested pores and all that good stuff.

Make sure you go into your skincare routine and touch your face with clean hands.
