Elle.Com: The Dose & Co. ambassador talks internet trolls, quarantine with True, and her sisters’s beauty secrets.
SASHA SAMSANOVA for Dose & Co.
If you’ve watched Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you know Khloé Kardashian keeps it real. Her off the cuff commentary and biting clapbacks have made her a beloved show fixture for 20 seasons. But these days, Kardashian has little time for Instagram trolls who nitpick her appearance. Between filming and raising her daughter True, Khloé has become the ambassador of Dose & Co, a new line of premium collagen supplements.
“At first, [mean comments] would definitely bug me, and I’m like, what in the world?” she tells ELLE.com over Zoom.
“I would never take my time to shame someone or be negative. I only comment nice and positive things. At first, I would let stuff like that affect me. And now I really don’t care. Maybe if I’m having a bad day. But typically, I would say 90 percent of the time, it doesn’t affect me.”
However, there are exceptions. “Sometimes I have to fuck with people a little bit,” she admits with a sly smile. “I try not to! I try to behave, but sometimes they’re just asking for it.”
Ahead, Kardashian shares her best advice for working moms, plus why she partnered with Dose & Co, beauty secrets from her sisters, and her favorite sunscreen trick.
Beauty starts from the inside out.
I became a part of [Dose & Co.] because when I got pregnant, I obsessed over “How am I going to make this earth better? And how am I going to make myself better now that I have a kid?” You go down these rabbit holes. I really wanted to fix myself from the inside out. Someone told me about doing collagen powders once I was done being pregnant. Dose and Co has such pure, impressive ingredients. The amount of collagen grams was totally different than some of the others on the market. I love the price point, but the selling point was that the packaging is all plastic free.
We definitely have a lot more time [in quarantine] to just pamper ourselves. I swear my hair was in conditioning masks for maybe a week straight. You have more time to make your routine and make sure you’re following through with some of the things that you would maybe be too busy to remember. I tried to stick to my routine that I had prior, because it was giving me a little sense of normal. At the very beginning, I would say the first couple of weeks was so scary that I had no motivation to work out or anything.
Take mental health breaks.
You’re watching the news all day, you’re trying to figure out what’s happening. I had to then pull myself back together and say, “Okay, you’re going to have limited news time and what you’re going to watch news for. I’m going to make a schedule. I’m still going to work out.” And I had to bring True along with me to do a lot of things. I had to make sure that I was still taking care of my mental health.
I put sunscreen on my hands when I’m driving every time. You don’t realize your hands are exposed to the sun through your windshield. Your hands will age the fastest. You can’t really do a facelift for your hands or anything like that. So, take care of your hands. I’m a sunscreen junkie in the car more than anything.
Sisters have the best beauty advice.
[My sisters] are so inspiring for me. We always take tips and tricks. Kourtney loves skincare, but she loves very, very natural stuff. Which is great, but sometimes there’s a fine line too. She might like things that don’t work into my lifestyle. Definitely with hair, I think Kylie knows [best]. But there’s definitely different sisters I go to for different things. We were just on a text chain talking about toothpaste and fluoride. And Kendall, because she has her toothpaste company, was giving us so much insight. I’m like, “Oh my God. Okay.” It’s so funny when different sisters have different beauty obsessions.
