Kerr recently launched a serum that acts as a natural alternative to retinol. Translation? It promises to do all the things retinol does—plump fine lines and wrinkles, smooth texture, and even skin tone—without the irritation that’s often synonymous with the powerhouse ingredient.
Instead of retinol, this serum is formulated with bakuchiol, alfalfa, and plant stem cells. Together, they firm the skin, target signs of aging, and defend against environmental stress. Here’s the kicker: It does all of these things without causing dryness, peeling, flakiness, and redness. In fact, it’s so gentle that it can be used both morning and night to speed up results.
“I really want to change the narrative of organic skincare being less effective because I think that’s a bunch of BS, especially knowing that there are 60% more antioxidants in a certified-organic ingredient,” Kerr says. “We have a lot of customers with sensitive skin, and I myself have sensitive skin. I’m super proud that this is the first certified-organic retinol alternative that’s ever been launched.”
After dry-brushing, Kerr heads to the kitchen for celery juice, which she drinks every morning. “I prep the juice the night before. I make sure that I cut and clean it, so in the morning, I just have to quickly make it fresh,” she says. “It’s a bit overwhelming when you’ve got three kids running around. You’re trying to make breakfast, and you’re also trying to make celery juice. … It’s too much. The celery juice helps me with energy.”
Kerr continues to incorporate moments of self-care throughout the day by carrying a rose quartz crystal, burning palo santo (“You burn the palo santo, and it resets your whole energy”), and using the Theragun to relieve tight muscles. “I’ll often get it out of my bag—I’m a big bag lady—and do it for like five minutes,” she says.
She also sticks to herbal tea in an effort to avoid too much caffeine. “I love lemon balm tea with honey,” she says. “Growing up in Australia, my parents were like, ‘Let’s have a cup of tea!’ But those cups of tea add up to a lot of caffeine if you’re having black tea. I love lemon balm because it’s soothing and good for the digestive and nervous systems.”
It’s not just tangible products that Kerr counts on to keep herself well. In true holistic fashion, she also focuses on her mindset. “We can look outside and say, ‘I can’t believe it’s raining again.’ Or we can be like, ‘I love the rain. We really needed this. It feels so cozy.’ It’s our perspective, and only we can change that. If we change our perspective and we change our mindset, we can really change ourselves at the end of the day. We can [be] better. We can feel more vibrant and feel more alive.”
