Lime Crime CEO Doe Deere Says Starting Day Right Is Essential

by JimHanson82 .


Lime Crime creator Doe Deere has her morning routine down to a fine art. If you ask her how she starts her morning routine, she will eagerly tell you. The personable businesswoman swears by her rise and shine music. Doe says she has to have her 9 hours of sleep — while everyone is different, that’s her optimal number. She doesn’t use an alarm, so her internal clock wakes her up each morning at 8:30 a.m.


“I am definitely a morning person. I love waking up in my own home and fixing breakfast in my own kitchen.” She says that most of the time, she just gazes out the window while taking in breakfast and contemplates the day.


Doe lives in Los Angeles, where the air is very dry. “I have to stay hydrated. It’s the best thing for keeping the skin fully hydrated.” Doe says she drinks one full glass of water in the morning before she does her stretching routine. Although she admits to not being the most athletic person, she does some light stretching and exercises to stay loose. Next comes breakfast. Doe says she loves grits and fruit. The oranges she has comes from her own tree.


Since she lives her life by her cell phone calendar, it’s the first thing she checks in the morning when she wakes up. “I have to stay abreast of all the goings on before I go to the office,” says Doe. Listening to music while putting on her makeup is a must. Her favorite album: The Beatles Abbey Road. “It has always been one of my favorite albums, and I grew up listening to it.”


Doe says makeup time is her favorite time of the day because she can be free. Her favorite moisturizer is Murad’s Hydrodynamic Quenching Essence. She also loves Loreal True Match Foundation. And speaking of foundations, Doe says it’s something she’s working on and hopes to bring to her line in a couple of years.


Doe says she feels great when she arrives in the office at about noon. She eats, socializes with her team, and all is right with the world. “I have so much energy, I can work until midnight, if I have to.”
